Boundaries Wed 28-Dec-16 12:28:42

That is a VERY happy day Peppa

I went for a run in the gorgeous blue frosty weather.

I just watched a new movie - first time in ages. 'The intern' with Robert DeNiro, I thoroughly recommend!

Boundaries Thu 29-Dec-16 15:36:03

I am eating co op cherry swirl ice cream.

Bugger ME it's lovely.

BonnyAnnie Thu 29-Dec-16 21:18:04

I like the idea of sharing happy things.

Ok- for me today-
My DD took a dozen of my beautiful hens' eggs across country on an inland flight in her suitcase.They are for part of her and her friend' New Year's Eve meal.

None of them were broken !!!

peppatax Thu 29-Dec-16 22:51:57

That's awesome Bonny - what is she making with them?

Glitteryunicorn Thu 29-Dec-16 23:11:59

I'm in although I'm currently taking a social media break (mumsnet doesn't count) so will be starting officially on the 1st

Unofficially today cake made me happy grin

Boundaries Fri 30-Dec-16 13:12:19

glittery I'm not planning on posting on social media, just emailing photos to their website.

My happy thing today: the realisation that using thick bleach to clean the bathroom makes it super shiny!! 😂

BonnyAnnie Fri 30-Dec-16 13:36:50

Hehe - for the bleach.

My daughter's going to be making crepes with our eggs.

My happy thing for today:
I am learning how to stand up for myself with my partner without ruining my day and without losing hope for a future with him.
I'm using a combination of 'grey rock' and 'middle chill' technique - all combined wth working on myself. smile

Boundaries Fri 30-Dec-16 15:00:56

Bonny that beats thick bleach 😂

Boundaries Fri 30-Dec-16 15:05:04

Ps I just googled those techniques. Interesting.

BonnyAnnie Fri 30-Dec-16 15:10:26

Like your name Boundaries.

I've been struggling with a migraine today. Been outside in the cold and fog for several hours. Finally able to get into my warm bed (electric blanket) and lay my thumping head down ...

Feeling very grateful ... and hopeful that a long sleep will help.

peppatax Fri 30-Dec-16 17:22:27

A very quiet day here but the highlight being tomato soup and a bath. Bliss.

Boundaries Fri 30-Dec-16 17:25:38

Thank you, Bonnie

Hope the sleep does the trick, Pusscat

Was it Heinz, peppa - ultimate comfort food....

peppatax Fri 30-Dec-16 17:38:15

It was Heinz! It was soooo good!

Roodolf Fri 30-Dec-16 17:50:08

I'm in.
Very under the weather with CFS today but had the most gorgeous snuggle with my cat and a lovely catch up with a friend.
Good to refocus - bit like a gratitude journal but in picture form.
Congratulations on the nephew peppa !

Boundaries Fri 30-Dec-16 18:15:25

Gorgeous snuggly cat cuddles are ESPECIALLY good in picture form roodolf

Boundaries Sat 31-Dec-16 17:37:54

Made beautiful cakes with my boy.

Only covered half the kitchen in icing grin

Hello! I've been doing this for 4 days. Posting on instagram. It's good - it really helps I think. One day all I could post a picture of was my lovely bed because I'd had a nice unbroken sleep and managed a lie in

I've been trying to write down gratitudes for the day too. There's always something to be grateful for and it does uplift me.

I've had a hard end of year and I'm planning to make 2017 amazing.

my happy thing for today, spending some time with a really lovely friend.

Yoksha Sat 31-Dec-16 18:11:58

One of my cats didn't come home last night. I'd locked him in our garage. When he was gobbing off at me before breakfast my ♡ swelled with affection for him.

peppatax Sat 31-Dec-16 18:12:07

I posted on the other thread by mistake!

My happy thing was a run today, hard but felt good after!
