March was a WONDERFUL month for me! With lots of lovely events and occasions of truly happy days! It made me think, hang on, these happy days of mine can just keep rolling out! Why stop at 100? I think the effort of snapping a happy moment each day really helps you to pay attention to the small things that you should be happy about each day. There is no reason to be sad for days on end, no reason at all! Even if you’re mourning a loved one, it may hurt you a lot, but you just need to use up a few minutes of your day to acknowledge the happiness around you! I shouldn’t compare it to loosing a loved one, that event has luckily passed me and I have never mourned someones death. I’m lucky to have all my loved ones, friends and family all with me. I’m just saying from an outside point of view, you should promote yourself the strength to acknowledge the happiness around you, even in tough, sad, dark times. Just because you’re sad, doesn’t mean the happiness around you ends, it is just your vision of happiness that ends. You should keep your eyes peeled each day for happiness. There is no need to mope and be disheartened, ever! Be happy every day or be blind to not see it.
Day 29: 1st March. A sunny, gorgeous Saturday, waking up in my old bedroom at NannyJs.
Day 30 March 2nd – HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUNTY EVE!
Furthermore on day 35, I came across a lovely poem, I picked up the word Invictus from the paraolympics and when I looked into this Latin word ‘Invictus’ meaning “Unconquered” I was inspired by this wonderful poem.
Day 36: My beautiful friend ‘Aligwarn’ with a tea and sandwich handed to me on my arrival to my second home. I love a visit to the O’riordan’s house, to visit my beautiful sisters Alice, Fiona and Katie, Momma Rose and pops Andy. The whole family fill my heart and always make me smile. I love you lot!

Day 39: Katie, my Adopted sister from the O’Riordan’s, sent me a photo of her beautiful daughter Florence Hogan, this gorgeous little munchkin always puts a big smile on my face and to wake up to this very cute picture of her giggling, makes me smile every time I look at it! She is so adorable and I seriously love her to bits!
Day 40: My aunty Tee sent me several photos of my little cousin Urban, on her first ski trip with her
daddy, Uncle David. She looks so cool and skis just like a little pro, after seeing the video sent to me along with these photos, this little dude will be skiing in the Olympics in no time! She can give me a few tips for my appearance in the paraolympics too!

Day 43: Having my laptop back after a few days in the IT hospital, getting the screen fixed, put a massive smile on my face! I’m lost these days without my laptop! Especially with all the support on social media sites for my blog posts! I’m a bloggerholic these days and without my laptop for 3 to 4 days was painful man. Reunited with this baby put a very big smile on my face!
Day 44: A lovely lunch date with my darling friend Roisin. This little sweetheart of mine is swanning off to live in the big old smokey town! I will miss her a lot! All the best in your new life chapter of events my darling. I love you to the moon and back and I will be visiting you all the time once I’ve conquered train journeys with a peg leg. So keep your eyes peeled for the talent for us both!
Day 45: Relaxing in Nanny Js sunny conservatory on the massage chair. Chilled out and happy, with all the hectic fun going on for the paddy’s parade. I couldn’t handle busy crowds like that just now, id much rather stay in and relax in peace and quiet. I was very disheartened by the fact that all my mates were out having fun until, I get a lovely kind comment from my “aunty” Mary, reassuring me that I’m not missing anything and that chilled out sundays in the sun were better, left to recline and relax!
Day 49: YAY! Theresa has arrived home from Gibraltar, with her beautiful baby boy Xiggy getting kisses from nanny Durkin. Love this little cousin of mine! Such a beautiful baby boy!
|Day 50: I went to stay at my lovely Aunty Nia’s house for a Sunday morning Buddhist Retreat! I was such a relaxing and delightful experience. Thank you so much Nia! It was great to see you and Elis too.|
Day 51: Also on this day, as well as receiving a cracking snap chat, I received a lovely treat surprise by my long long beloved hamsa necklace. My mom gave this necklace to me a few years ago and I absolutely LOVED it! I had completely forgotten all about it, I get this buddha statue into my room for a few seconds and looks at the rewards! Respect to Buddha!
Day 52: After a lovely weekend in Birmingham, I wake up at home in Wolverhampton to a very kind thank you card, from the beautiful baby mama Christina. I can’t wait to meet gorgeous little Orla! Lots of love to you 3!

Day 57: Date night with my lovely sis, owl tea and a good film. We stayed in and had a chilled out early night while mom and Richard went down to nan and granddads house for whiskey and natters. I would love to celebrate moms birthdays with them all, but drinking isn’t a good activity for me these days! Best to stay in with Alex and recline after a tiring day of travelling.
