I found my happy again. #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:


Over the last couple of weeks I haven't been too happy.....We've had a lot going on which I mentioned a fortnight ago and again last week. My mother dying which didn't really bother me but at the same time it did, Ellie being bullied, my teen choosing her GCSE options, big homework projects and a few other private things...

This week I have become happy again! We all have here....I still have a couple of worries but on Twitter I said for Lent I am going to give up worrying about things I have no control over....So far so good.....

I have stopped drinking coffee.....I used to have 2 or 3 cups a day and I didn't think it affected my sleeping....It turns out it did. I used to go upstairs to bed at about 10pm and was usually still awake after 12am....Now I am drifting off to sleep at about 11pm or before.....I think having more sleep has really helped me feel better and happier....I had a cup of coffee with my friends yesterday and had a headache nearly all day....No more coffee for me.

The weather has been lovely here all week....We have had sunshine and it has been quite warm and dry. Warm enough for us to go to the park twice this week, have ice lollies and get washing out to dry....I was stood in the school yard waiting for Ellie to come out yesterday and I was thinking I needn't have worn my coat....


The bullying has completely stopped for Ellie and she is so much happier for it....She is coming home in a good mood and that makes everyone else happy. 

Ellie had rehearsals for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on Saturday at the big school along with all the other schools taking part in the performance. I was slightly worried as a few of the girls who had been bullying her were going and there would have been less teacher supervision. It turns out I had nothing to worry about....When the ringleader isn't about those girls are lovely....She has more rehearsals tomorrow and on Monday and then it's the big show on Tuesday....I know I am going to cry when they all sing Close every door. I nearly cry when I hear it so when a bunch of kids sing it predict there will be sobbing.....lol

Becky is happy with her GCSE options and is sticking with French, Geography, Health and Social care and Religious Studies....During the week I have spent time helping her with her English homework....She is doing about the An Inspector Calls book and had to do a mind map about a character which Google came in very handy for.....I did An Inspector Calls at school and there was no internet to help.....Eesh! Even though it was work we had fun and a giggle....


It has been a great week....So much better than the last two. I am feeling positive about life and things again....Hooray!

  1. It's lovely to hear you so happy, you have had so much going on lately. So pleased that the bullying has stopped and that Becky's pleased with her options. I don't like coffee so have never even had a single cup, but who knew it would affect you that much! x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

  2. yay, I'm glad your happy has returned. I'm really glad that Ellie is no longer being bullied, that's definitely something to be happy about. I'm glad that Becky is more settled now too and happy with her options. I think the warmer weather helps to make you happy too.

  3. What a positive week. So glad you are feeling happier. Bet you feel like you could move mountains now. Wonderful that Ellie is not being targeted anymore, plus she is getting on well with the musical. Funny how the dynamics of the group change and they can get on. So good that Becky is happy with her choices too. Hope it goes well. #wotw

  4. I'm glad you've had such a positive week. It must be a huge relief that the bullying has stopped. Kids can be so thoughtless and cruel at times. I also studied an Inspector Calls. How did we manage our homework without the internet!! #wotw

  6. Oh it's lovely to hear you've got your happiness back Kim! I did The Inspector Calls too and looking at those notes brings back memories! As for the coffee, you go girl! Without wanting to sound preachy, I gave up caffeine (in drinks at least - chocolate still rules!) a few years back and I'd never go back to it! #wotw

      I am all for staying off Coffee now. I feel less anxious without it and my sleep has been brilliant. x

    1. Thank you. I thought I was OK with my mother dying but it did get to me more than I thought and let on. This last week has been brilliant. Just what I needed to boost my mood. Thank you x

  9. This is so lovely to read, especially as I remember your previous posts about Becky's bullying. You must be so relieved and very happy about that. At the same time I've just read your post about your mother and that must've caused mixed emotions. Lovely to hear that you're now reconciled with what has happened and you've found your happy place again. You deserve it!
