Happy Days #10

Joining in with the HappyDays Linky hosted by Jenna and Katy, inspiring people to make the most of every day.

Out and about

We’ve not had a very good week with getting out and about due to Rosalie having a terrible cold and cough – she sounds like an old man who’s smoked 50 a day when she coughs, and her little eyes get all watery. We did manage a walk on Wednesday lunchtime with a friend who works locally, so that was nice, but generally we’ve been indoors this week.

Fun at home

Our days have mostly been spent alternating between eating and napping (well Rosalie napped, not me!). I put her in her Christmas jumper to cheer her up and she’s enjoyed pulling the flaps (aka destroying) her advent calendar! We’ve also started reading Christmas Stories together.

Despite her cold, on Tuesday, since I didn’t think it was fair on the other babies to take R to Jolly Babies, we did some Christmas crafting at home – we made edible paint using yogurt and did hand print reindeer and finger paint baubles.

Time for me

I haven’t really had any me time this week. I’ve not even done any baking. I had hoped to get my first batch of mince pies made, but having a baby sleeping in your arms isn’t conducive to getting much done!

My happiest moment

The cheery moments in-between the snot have been the highlight of my week!

Next week I would like to try…

With Rosalie being unwell this week we didn’t manage to do too many Christmas crafts, so hopefully next week we will be able to get a bit more festive.

    Awww aside from her rosy cheeks you'd never know she had a cold as R always looks so happy! I love her Christmas jumper, so cute! Vx

    Oh poor Rosalie! πŸ™ I hope her cough and cold shifts very soon so you can get back to going out and baking.

    Your indoor activities look great though and I love the reindeer card – so sweet! πŸ™‚

    Thanks Katy, the cough is lingering but she's much jollier in herself now πŸ™‚

    I was wondering how well the yogurt would dry and how stable it would be, but the pictures still look great and they don't smell like sour milk, ha ha!!!! xx
