Embracing Happyness!

At Britmums live on the Saturday I attended the Embrace Happy workshop run by Pippa Best, Story of Mum and Karin Joyce, Embrace Happy
It was probably hands downmy favourite   workshop of the whole weekend! 
It left me feeling inspired and .... happy!

What I took away was that every day has some good in it, even if you don't think it did.

Sit down at the end of the day and think about what made you smile, be it a nice cup of coffee or a stranger smiling at you.

You don't need the world to make you happy, just the small things in your every day life!!

Write down 3 good things that have happened that day. Then you can look back and think actually it wasn't all that bad. 

Doing this will help me a tremendous amount when dealing with my down days.

I've also been googling "happy" quotes to pop in my planner on random days as a little reminder to myself to #embracehappy. 

My quote for today is .....
" You are never to old to set another goal or dream a new dream " C.S Lewis.

We also made 'happy hearts' pictured above. Which on each strip of paper is written something that makes me happy. 
My heart is now on my bedside table, so I see it every day.

I'm  planning to do make some with Noah, as i think he'd like doing an activity like this as he finds it hard telling people his feelings, whether they're  happy or sad. 

I have a special little notebook beside my bed that I write my 3 good things of the day in just before I go to bed.
It's helped me feel much lighter and less down about things and I'm sleeping better.
It's a therapy all in its self. 

So ladies I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for holding such a great workshop.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
