Time for Days 15-21 of my #100HappyDays challenge – I really am enjoying this. Some days I’m including things which I’m not sure I’ll look back on in 80 odd days time and go ‘wow that makes me soo happy’ but they are things which are helping for one day at a time, and it’s doing wonders in that sense. If you want to check out the earlier weeks here’s Week One and Week Two
Day 15 was a really hard day, Ethan is going through a really challenging phase and he was pretty exhausting this day, plus I had spent the weekend being quite poorly. A bath with some amazing Lush shower gel, a gorgeous smelling Yankee candle and then cuddling up in my pyjamas pretty much gave me the best possible end to the day.
Following on from yesterday, Day 16 was improved 100 fold by, first, being able to get an emergency drs appt straight away and then being prescribed anti-biotics without having to jump through hoops, by the lovely dr. I was still in pain but knowing that these would make me better was a very good feeling.
Day 17 is the first day that Ethan had gone to nursery in a week (due to his being poorly last week) – I love my little boy with everything but my goodness it’s nice to sit down with a cup of tea and a graze brownie and just relax whilst he’s at nursery (well, relax for half an hour before I had to get on with the piles of housework that needed doing now that he was out of the house!)
Day 18 – I’ve wanted a necklace like this for ages, but to get one for about £4 from eBay just made it even better – I love it, a lot, and as I’ve wanted it so long it’s made me really happy that I have finally found one.
Day 19 – Ethan in his new, pink wellies – He was blowing me kisses and the phone captured his face in this awesome expression instead! He rocks those skinny jeans, minion tee and pink wellies – What a boy!
Day 20 is another Ethan one – This is him saying ‘Taadaa’ after he helped Grandma put the shopping away (and he actually did quite a lot of actual helping too, ahh how things have changed since it was purely hindering!) – I can’t believe I’m 20% of the way through the challenge – I can imagine carrying it on afterwards but we’ll see.
Day 21 is being able to put my engagement ring back on – I have to get it off when my eczema affects the skin around it, sometimes, so it’s always so nice to be able to put it back on!
