52 Weeks of Happy 7/52

I missed week 6. Sorry. I've been exhausted and work has been busy. It always seems to get crazy at school in the run up to a holiday. Why is that???

I love my job, really I do but it's such hard work. I really can't wait to go on maternity leave and look towards something a little different.

I'm not really feeling the blog right now. I struggle with regular weekly posts and don't really feel like I know where I'm going with the it at the moment. I started it as a way of chronicling what I'm making but it never ends up looking as good as I'd hope or imagine. There are so many amazing looking and inspiring blogs out there that I guess I just feel like the poor relation. I never remember to carry my camera with me. And when I do, I feel a bit stupid taking photos of random things. Does anyone else get that?

Has anyone got any advice for improving the look of the blog or interest of my posts?? I'm not really sure where to go next.

Here we go....Another week, another 4 things..... with no photos. I'm determined that as I'm off work this week I'll be better prepared for my post this week.

1. 20 week scan. (despite being 24 weeks) (this was actually last week but I'm kind of writing about the last fortnight. Is that cheating??)

2. Shrove Tuesday. We made pancakes at guides. It was a floury, eggy, battery mess but they loved it.

3. Lunch with my family for my mum's birthday. I dont think my brother can go out for a meal without having far too much to drink but he is such fun entertainment. I love him!!!

4. The spare room is 99% clear!!! But now I'm a bit worried about the ceiling collapsing under the weight of the stuff in the loft !


  1. I think it's normal to get fed up with blogging sometimes. I'm always toying with the idea of giving up. As for taking photographs in the street/cafe/etc - I don't like doing that either. I'm finding it a bit easier now I have a phone with a decent camera though - it's a bit easier to hide!

    third round: join new colour in any 1ch space, 3ch, 2tr in same space, 1ch, [(3tr, 3ch, 3tr) in next space, 1ch, 3tr in next space] 3 times, (3tr, 3ch, 3tr) in last space, 1ch, join iwth sl st to top of starting 3ch, fasten off

    fourth round: this round is just a standard granny square round (3tr in each space along side, (3tr, 3ch, 3tr) in each corner space

    Hope this is ok!

  2. I know exactly how you feel about blogging, I'm pretty new to it too and sometimes when I look at other people's lovely blogs I feel a bit daunted. Then when I see how many followers they have I feel positively inadequate! Still, nothing attempted, nothing gained, so I'll just keep going!
    I also feel silly stopping to take photos when I'm out! And as for you posting your Happies with no photos this time, well I found it just as interesting imagining it all!!!!
    happy blogging!

  3. But you've made such cool friends! ;) Everyone gets tired of the blog sometimes, me included. I think the best way to deal with it is to pop in when you feel like it. Also, 24 weeks already?!?! That was FAST! So excited to meet you new little bundle!
