Sorry. I seem to have disappeared. Thing is, I have been concentrating so hard on being happy that there's been NO TIME for anything else. I have to sleep! and exercise! and declutter !
It's a lot of work.
But still, one discovery I have made is that if you make yourself get up earlier, like earlier enough to maybe go for a short cycle ride or actually have time to pack the lunches that you normally fling hurriedly into lunchbags during the time that you should be having your breakfast, you get less cross. Who knew that?
And, if one of your children is scared of thunderstorms/ too hot/ full of cold and keeps you awake two nights running, at 3am you can nudge the alarm on an hour and get up at 7am instead of 6am and call that a sleep-in!
I'll be back later with news of our Happiness Craft Offensive - a hysterical attempt to use up all the tissue paper and pipecleaners and little foam shapes that make up most of our possessions.
Chin up! No yawning!
