Happy Days Linky: Family and Friends

I am actually surprised at how quickly this week has gone. Monday saw hubby return to work and me wondering how on earth I was going to get through days of solo parenting two under two. The answer came with the health adviser who suggested I punctuate my days with things to do.



What has made me happy this week?

  1. Seeing family and friends (particularly my Dad)
  2. Bonding with the girls:  Watching the eldest do a dance that I can only describe as similar to that of The Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland and saying words like ‘door’ and ‘tickle’ while tickling her feet so that the little one stays awake to drink. 
  3. Registering the birth of our youngest Daughter
  4. Tucking into a milkshake and piece of cake – naughty but nice
  5. Being covered by the MMR vaccine: During the first trimester of pregnancy one of the blood tests came back as equivocal so it was deemed necessary to redo the injection once I'd given birth.
How has your week been?

  1. I never thought of Mum's needing jabs after giving birth! Glad you are all covered though! Sounds as though it has been a good week, I am sure that you will work out your routines and get into the swing of things before too long. Hope you do anyway! Thank you for joining in Five On Friday, I hope you have a great weekend! xx

  4. Your girls are beautiful! Oh, I remember a scare when pregnant with my youngest (now 11) when a coworker actually came down with the measles and having to call the Dr. office in a panic. Thankfully, they had checked it out early and I was fine as my immunity was still there. So glad you're covered by the vaccine once again. Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  9. As I type Jack is in the kitchen making a milkshake, we got a new smoothie maker this week and they have got through so much milk, I however have been busy making cocktails, such a lovely photo, and I am so glad you have had a great week. That first week is a bit daunting isnt it?But once that is over it all seems a little easier x

    1. Homemade food and drink is the best. Thank you for the well wishes. It's true that first week was daunting after being surrounded by hospital staff then my hubby to go to nearly nobody.

  11. Cheering you on in this new season of your life! You have reminded me of the joys and challenges I knew in the early years of my children's lives. I have two adopted sons and two naturally born daughters. The girls are two years apart in age. For three years we also parented two foster daughters before having our two naturally born girls. Adventures! May you and yours be blessed with much joy! xx
