Happy Days- A Look Back At Our Week

I really enjoyed the #happydayslinky last week and I am joining in again this week. 

This week has been us trying to entertain ourselves with days out for free before we go on holiday at the end of the month. It’s been mostly late nights and food being whatever we grab at the time. 

Here are my happy days from the week.

Bike riding

The boys enjoyed a long bike ride from our house to their Nanny’s house this week. 

We had one of those days where we were just restless with no plan for the day. We’d taken it easy not doing a lot in our pj’s until about 10.30am and that’s about as much indoor time we could handle. The boys wanted to go on a bike ride. Hubby usually loads the bikes in his van and I drive in the car with the boys to our local county park that is great for bike riding. But as hubby was at work and we still don’t have a bike rack a cycle ride to Nanny’s was the best option. It took about 30 minutes to get there and 30 minutes to get back. I pushed the buggy incase my youngest got tired but I ended up running to catch up the whole way there and back, he wasn’t tired at all! We stopped off to see the ducks and to play at the park on the way back and it was a great way to make the most out of the day.

Motocross fun

Hubby took our 8 year old out on his motocross bike to the track. It’s so nice they have a sport that brings them together and helps them bond. It’s also a great way for DS1 to get rid of any stress and frustration he has and he came back really proud of himself and in a great mood. 
I tried something new

Cooking has got a bit boring for me and the family have got a bit bored of eating the same old thing every week. I was having a lazy morning watching Jamie Oliver’s 30 minute meals and was drooling over this amazing mustard chicken and dauphinoise potatoes he was making. He made it look so easy so I thought ‘even I can do that’. I had to go out and buy all the ingredients I didn’t have, which was everything, and it certainly cost quite a bit more than I usually spend on one meal but it actually turned out really well. Hubby ate it all up, 8 year old loved it, 6 year old cried and gagged like it was a bush tucker trial from ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’, and 3 year old did pretty well, which as far as my cooking goes, was a real success! Now I have the key ingredients I will definitely be making it again.

A free family fun day

We had a great time at a local free family fun day. The weather was amazing and there was lots to do for the kids. 3 year old went straight for the face painting table as he loves to be Spider Man! 6 year old spent most of his time bouncing around happily on a space hopper and 8 year old found some friends so I didn’t see him much for the whole time but he had fun!

I’m really enjoying the school holidays and I don’t want it to end!



I am a 28 year old mum living in Kent. I am totally outnumbered living with my husband and 3 boys but I love the fun and adventure they bring to my life. As a family we enjoy being active and to get out and about as much as possible. A little about us Me- My husband and I met 12 years ago when I was 16 and him 19. Being so young I don't think either of us expected a nervous first date at the cinema to lead to marriage and 3 children but we soon became inseparable. It can be hard staying 'girlie' in a house full of boys. DS1- DS1 is very sporty. He enjoys football, rugby and swimming but his real passion is motocross. I think hubby would have happily had him on a motocross bike the second he took his first step but he first started to ride when he got his first 50cc bike at 6 years old. Now, aged 8, he rides with complete confidence on his 65cc and is desperate to start competing. As his mother I will always worry about him no mater what he does but seeing how happy this sport makes him makes me want to support him 100%. DS2- DS2 is a real animal lover. He would love nothing more than to have a house full of cats and dogs but unfortunately for him the only pet we have is our goldfish named 'Goldie'. When we visit family who have dogs DS2 will happily sit there for hours talking, stroking and trying to teach them tricks. Computer games is DS2's favourite pass time. He was gifted a tablet for Christmas last year and now, at 6, he has my husband bugging him on tips to get new levels. To keep active DS2 really enjoys swimming. He is not afraid of the water at all and would swim every day given the chance. He has such a loving, caring personality. DS3- DS3 is, well, a real handful as most 2 year olds are. He is never short of energy and zooms everywhere at a million miles an hour on his favourite balance 'motorbike'. Much to my husbands joy DS3 is also obsessed, yes obsessed with motocross. All he wants to do is play motorbikes, wear DS1's helmet and boots at any given chance and watch the videos of DS1 riding. DS3 learns so much from his older brothers and he surprises me everyday with how daring and forward he is in so many ways.

  1. The bush tucker trial thing made me giggle. That would be be my 5 year old. Sounds delicious though. I really need to get a bit more adventurous with my cooking. I’m stuck in a rut. Oh and those motorcross outfits look so cool!
