10 things that’ve made me happy this week…


1. finishing my 8000word essay! did i mention i’ve been writing an 8000 word essay already? ;) i can’t help going on about it, because it’s undoubtedly the biggest feat i’ve achieved at university to date! i kind of don’t care what mark it gets now (although a solid upper second would be just delightful) because i’m just so proud to have got it finished!

2. finding a sweet new pair of skinny jeans on sale in gap the other day. and now i’m officially on a trouser-buying ban, because i’ve bought four new pairs in the past month. someone stop me…

3. watching teddy paddle his way round the pond on wednesday afternoon. jason gave me strict instructions not to let him go swimming in the pond earlier in the week(we’ve got super grumpy neighbours and jase likes to keep the peace) but when teddy hopped in i couldn’t stop laughing long enough to call him back out! i especially enjoyed watching him scramble out at top speed when he got spooked by one of the koi carp :)

4. limes! i’ve been obsessed with lime recently, i just can’t get enough. i’m planning on having a baking day tomorrow to celebrate having finished writing my essay, so maybe i should give this lime cake another whirl?

5. looking at cocker and springer spaniel puppies online. whilst jason and i have got our hands full with ted right now, we’re both dreaming of expanding our little pack one day :)

6. burning my grapefruit and lime candle. see, i did say i was obsessed with lime!

7. eating my way through all that cheese i bought last week. it’s been pretty great, i can’t tell a lie!

8. finally getting round to watching the tudors! it’s not a patch on our beloved homeland, but we’ve been enjoying watching an episode or two each night to help us switch off.

9. yesterday’s erratic weather. one minute warm sunshine, then galeforce wind, then torrential downpours of rain! i quite like how crazy spring is.

10. blogging. i’ve not had much chance to blog this week because essay writing all day long drains my head completely, and so by the time i sit down in the evening to write a post, i’m clean out of words. but having to take a little step back from the blog for the past few days has made me realise quite how much i love documenting our day-to-day happenings on this little blog of mine :)

tell me, what’s made you happy this week?

    With your obsession with limes, you need to venture to The Southwest, everything is absolutely coated in lime. Congrats on the essay; and you have just reminded me how happy I am to be graduated! I do remember how amazing the feeling is when something that legit is turned in and you think “YES, it’s gone forever!”

    I love these little posts! I’ve been loving blogging lately too, especially because I started a new project (a veg box challenge) and it actually seems to work out and I’ve found a couple of people to join, which is great, especially because the reason I never did something like this before was that I was worried noone would join in!
    I still got 2 courseworks to write (both like 5000 words) and one to proof read and cut words, so unfortunately nowhere near an end at uni yet!
    Oh and dogs, I want one so badly (we have two at home home, i.e. parents home) and once we move out of our uni flat, I’m definitely planning to get a dog, and the thought of it already makes me happy

    I love limes as well! And anything cake related with limes, I would eat it in a hearbeat! I’ve got a beagle puppy, but I’m always looking at expanding the family as well haha x

    It is needless to mention that English essay writing is a distinct form of literary art, and needs a very creative spirit as well as well as a creative way of writing. http://www.bestessaywriting.org/essay
