1.Watching the hedgerows near our house getting heavy with ripening blackberries. I’m planning on heading out to collect a pot or two any day now…

2. Breakfast dinner. Scrambled eggs on toast are the bomb.

3. I know I already mentioned it, but this street performer. I can’t get over how magic this little moment was.

4. Wearing new clothes for the first time.

5. Cracking open a new bottle of Starbucks gingerbread syrup! I can’t tell you how excited I am to start making gingerbread lattes again this autumn and winter!

6. Breakfasts of ripe peach and pink grapefruit.

7. Watching Ted attempt to escape going to bed on Tuesday evening! I got home late from London and so Jason had already put Teddy to bed once, but I woke him up coming in the front door. Ted had decided he was done with sleep and so refused to go back in the kitchen and just rolled onto his back to stop me moving him. I actually had to slide him, on his back, the full length of the hall to get him back into bed. That dog…

8. Fig and berry candles. SO good!

9. Watching the Great British Bake Off with Jase, and hearing him say things like ‘Take the custard off the heat, for goodness sake’! This from the man who hasn’t cooked in about two and a half years…;)

10. Old friends, and new friends. I’m feeling pretty lucky these days to have such wonderful people around me :)

What’s made *you* happy this week? :)

    Fig candles are the best! Though perhaps hand picked blackberries are better! My baby is three months old today, that’s whats made ME happy this week, oh and the fact that I reckon autumn is almost here!

    Sounds like you’ve had a lovely week! For me, I’ve loved enjoying home luxuries this week before I go back to Uni on Monday: playing with my gorgeous dog, sleeping in my extremely comfy bed and eating fillet steak! :) xxx

    I love watching GBBO with Dave. It’s only while watching it that I realise how much cookery knowledge he’s picked up from me over the last 14 years. He can protest all he likes that he doesn’t know what he’s doing in the kitchen, but GBBO and I know the truth :)
