10 things that’ve made me happy this week…

image: found via pinterest, originally from food 52.

1. being able to sit outside  every day this week, finishing up the last of my university work in the sunshine :) the garden is ted’s favourite place ever, so i’ve been able to get so much work done whilst he amuses himself playing with the mud/fountain/leaves!

2. seeing the fallen blossom dancing about in the wind outside our house.

3. knowing that after this week i will never, ever have to use the mhra referencing system again in my whole life!

4. fresh summer salads: last night’s was gammon, cucumber and pea shoots, with lovely chewy tiger bread to mop up left over vinaigrette :)

5. opening up all the windows, and feeling a fresh breeze blow through the house.

6. sitting with my feet in the lake the other morning, whilst teddy swam round and round and attempted to catch a duck. it was blissful.

7. kind of getting to grips with blowdrying my hair properly, instead of just a no-effort rough dry like i always used to do. does this mean i’m turning into a grown up?! ;)

8. playing throw and catch with jason and ted in the garden last night. it was fun, until jason’s competitive side took over and he started throwing the tennis ball at me, instead of to me. what is it with boys..?! :)

9.watching the ‘great bear stakeout’ last night! did you know the alaskan grizzly bears like to sit and watch the sunrise and sunset? how beautiful is that?!

10. making smoothies for breakfast. frozen berries, banana, natural yoghurt and honey is my favourite at the moment :)

what’s made you happy this week?

    I have loved the blossom too. I’m walking the long way to Uni, just so I can pass the blossom trees. It reminds me of being a child at primary school & shaking the branches, then dancing under the falling leaves. Smells so pretty :)

    I love these posts! For me it has to be just the sun being out – doesn’t happen that often up North! And I have to say, the comment from Harri above is just so lovely :) I actually imagined myself doing that while I read it!

    Oh what a week! Only reading about it makes me happy. I have spent time in the garden every single day this week (and now: weekend, even more time at hand to be outside!), that have made me happy from the inside out.

    I’ve loved being outside too! No coats needed, and even tiny tans are emerging (although never on me haha)xx

    Learning to blow dry your hair properly is VERY grown up. I have no idea how to do it AT ALL. Hence why my head normally looks like a cat has attacked it. In other news, AMAZING about nearly being done with referencing, and I’m jealous of you sitting with your feet in a lake. xx
