Happy days: Daffodils and naps

A whole week of February has passed and it’s as if someone got the memo that spring should start to get itself ready – the weather has been so much better here in Hertfordshire which makes for a better week before you’ve even started in my book. We’ve had some lovely moments and a few milestones for Lottie this week:

  • The daffodils and crocuses are coming up in our village and making things so pretty while we are out on our daily constitutional.

  • I have not had a migraine this week! The last few weeks I’ve been having them every other day, so I cannot begin to tell you what a relief this is.
  • Mr M had a day off on Tuesday as he worked all last weekend and we had a really lovely day together. Doing nothing much of anything, but sometimes, they are the best, aren’t they?
  • Lottie has gone down for her morning nap without a fuss nearly every day this week – win.
  • Mr M came home with a beautiful bunch of flowers for me. There’s nothing like surprise flowers.

  • We went to our local garden centre with a friend and her little boy on Friday and went to look at their little ‘zoo’. I’ve never seen anyone as excited about a goat as Lottie was.
  • Lottie had her first taste of solid food – banana and baby rice were both hits this morning.

  • And she has moved to her big girls pram as she had grown out of the carrycot attachment. She is a little confused at sitting up and seeing the world, but I think she’s going to love it.

Have you had happy days this week?


Quite Frankly She Said

    I can’t believe how quickly Lottie has grown up! It seems like she was just born! I’m loving all the spring flowers coming out early, just hope we don’t get any frost though. Thanks for linking up to #HappyDaysLinky!x

    Aww look at her! Fab news you didn’t have a migraine- hope the same can be said for this week too. Nothing worse than a headache is there?
