The #100HappyDays Challenge – Days 29-35 of My 100 Happy Days

This has been a tough week but a week with some amazing happiness too – I think you’ll see why when you read all of the captions.

Day 29  Saw me still being poorly but Ethan was really sweet and covered me in some of his teddies to make me feel better. Unfortunately I stayed poorly for a while and the sweet behaviour didn’t last either!
Day 30 – When we went out with my sister and nephew a few days before I bought a beautiful scarf from Primark. Sadly it got ruined really quickly so Azii venturing in to Primark on his own to get me a new one made me very happy – If that’s not love I don’t know what is!
On Day 31 Skye had open heart surgery – As you can probably guess that was a very difficult day for all of us and we were all incredibly stressed and worried. So, news that the surgery had been a success was just insanely happy. 
On Day 32 the postman brought me some post which included some lip glosses I bought from one of the lovely ladies in a group I’m in. It was so lovely to open the package and find my glosses wrapped up like a gift, with a cute little card too! Such a sweet way to send things and it put a smile on my face. 
Day 33 heralded more postman delivered happiness. The lovely team at BigJigs sent us some surprise post, a beautiful puzzle for Skye to help her feel better. It’s a bit too big for in hospital but she’s going to have it on her first visit to Nanny’s house as she’ll still be recovering then so it can be a really nice surprise for her. Such a lovely lovely thing for them to do! 
On Day 34 I was still testing out items from the Latest in beauty box that I was sent. To discover how healthy the matcha tea was was a nice surprise!
And for a rather grand finale of this week – Day 35 was the day that I was able to with Azii to visit Skye – My cold was gone, my mum was watching Ethan and we braved the trains on a Saturday and my goodness was it worth it. The moment we got there the smile on Skye’s face was the most beautiful thing to see, she was So happy to see her Daddy and then after a while she even noticed I was there and she was happy to see me too. She couldn’t keep the smile off her face for ages, and neither could we. She’s doing amazingly well and, on the day of me writing this, she should be going home today. She’s been ahead of expectations at every single stage of the recovery so I can’t wait to see how well she does over the coming weeks – She’s the bravest, strongest little girl I know; utterly amazing.

    Wow – a beautiful scarf next to open heart surgery shows how normal the situation must be for you. I understand to an extent – but I really don't know how I would cope if it was my child rather than me in and out of hospital. Skye has an awesome mummy and daddy to keep everything as even and happy as possible for her. Hope she is now making a great recovery. Is she home now?

      She's Azii's daughter, she lives with her Mum but she's very very loved by all sides of her family 🙂

      She's doing wonderfully, thank you, Azii saw her on Sunday and he said she was almost back to normal, she went to school this week which I can't quite believe, she's recovered SO quickly xxx
