Five For Friday - 5 Things That Made Me Smile This Week

Once again I'm joining in with Aspring Mum for her Friday fun. It's great to end the week with some grateful, smiley thoughts. Here are my five smiley things....

Cute as a Button....


I love to cover buttons to make clips and hair ties for my girls and friend's girls. This lovely little package was ordered by my friend who also enjoys this addictive crafty activity. I can't wait to get stuck into making them look cute and pretty, particularly the very tiny ones which I haven't tried before. There may be a girly crafty afternoon coming up which will make me smile even more!

It's All in the Routine...

Our afternoon/ evening routine has been quite difficult for months now and recently I was inspired by one of my Mums on the GO mummy friends to change things. I've gone from feeling like I'm a stressed out and tired mummy to being a lot more stress-free and happy. So far the new routine seems to be working. I am grateful for a group of wonderful mummies who inspire me.

Stepping Out...

Oh how wonderful it felt to go on an outing to Queen's Park, Ipswich yesterday! We are finally getting back out and about after weeks of sickness. Queen's Park has so much to offer. The girls and I had a lovely morning tea at the cafe followed by a play in the amazing playground. Animals next time! I enjoyed seeing the girls go down the huge (but very tame) slides, especially since Miss H was daring enough to give them a go. All of a sudden she's not seeming so little anymore.

Mums on the GO...

Mums on the GO is our usual weekly Wednesday outing that we look forward to and it was just so nice to see everyone and enjoy the group fun again.

Birthday Fun...

Miss M's special friend had a birthday on Tuesday so she gave her a call to sing "Happy Birthday" and have a chat. This made me smile so much as the two little girls tried to make conversation. So cute.....and a little awkward.


Do you have five things that made you smile this past week? Why not take the trip over to Aspring Mum to see her list and link in with your own.

What a lovely way to end a week - reflecting on all the things that made you smile.

Receiving a package in the mail, one that you will really enjoy is always fun and puts a smile on my face too. I can't wait to see what creations you come up with.

Getting out and about after weeks of sickness is liberating. We've had our share of colds this winter too, so we have missed many playgroup sessions etc. Here's to a more healthy spring for both of our families!

I hope you have a lovely weekend :)

I hope you have a lovely weekend too Elise. Hopefully this spring weather will bring about some healthy kids.

Glad to hear your new routine is working well. It's always good to try new ideas when the old ones aren't working so well anymore. (And inspiration from other mums is always wonderful!)

I am going to have to order some clips to *attempt* to make! They look like a great idea for presents - and Miss Chelsea with all her hair!

Thanks for joining in again!

Making hair clips and ties looks like lots of fun. It's a great present to send in the post, light and small!

Please do share your new evening routine. My hubby is at uni a couple of nights a week and I find myself needing lots of chocolate on those nights!
