10 things that’ve made me happy this week!



Can I tell you something I’ve missed this week? Dog walks. Oh, I’ve missed it so much! Teddy’s not been up to walking (and not been allowed to, either) for the past few days since his op, so we’ve not been out walking since last weekend, and it’s been so very strange. I didn’t realise quite how much I love getting out for a walk every day until we couldn’t go, and also couldn’t put my finger on why my body’s been feeling so lethargic and slow until I clocked that I’ve done about 3 hours less exercise this week than normal! Roll on next week, when Teddy can go off-lead again and we can get out and about once more! Here’s what’s made me happy this week, and here’s to simple joys like dog walks and little tails that’re just beginning to wag again!

1.¬†Dancing along to Beyonc√© with Jason whilst doing the washing up. We’ve been perfecting our ‘End of Time’ dance moves all this week ;)

2. A mid-week gastropub dinner, that ended with a warm chocolate and salted caramel tart. Totally amazing.

3. Making my first ever curry! No, correction- making my first ever *tasty* curry. I made one once before that was blander than a bowl of pasta, but this one was a winner! Next time I’ll dial back the chilli a bit though…when Jamie Oliver suggests that you remove the seeds from a chilli for a spice paste, just do it, okay?

4. Listening to George Ezra’s album on Spotify (also, Spotify! Who knew it was so amazing?!)

5. Bringing the duvet off the spare bed downstairs, and making a nest on the living room floor. Teddy even joined in! It was kind of the cutest thing ever.

6. Getting things organised that I’ve been meaning to sort for months now- like the crack in my windscreen, & that hideous whining noise my car makes when I drive it. All things car-related are my personal nemesis, but always so satisfying when ticked off a to-do list.

7. The advice and wisdom of good friends and family. I’ve felt extra grateful to have such wonderful people around me all this week.

8. Fresh bed linen (& a new set of pyjamas to boot).

9. Good hair days (even though they always happen to occur when I’ve not got a reason to leave the house all day)

10. Finding new TV series to binge-watch on Netflix. Hello, Californication & 24.

Three posts that I’ve loved reading this week :: Joy’s roasted tomato and feta guacamole recipe || Sydney’s ‘holding on’ post || + this post on how to organise your wardrobe, from Camille Styles (because it’s so inspiring, and tidiness makes my heart glad)

What’s made you happy this week? :)

    Hot chocolate and salt caramel tart sounds amazing! Fresh bed linen is definitely one of life’s little joys :) And Spotify is really genius, isn’t it? I couldn’t live without it!

    I recently tried making a curry too. I’m not the biggest fan but I like the idea of trying something new and I think you have a lot more control over the curry when you make it yourself. Personally I prefer a thai curry :)

    24 is amazing, one of the first proper programs I watched. Love a bit of Jack Bauer.

    My hubby and I took our four buggies on a mini adventure and it was awesome! Plus I just finished my first week of homeschooling two and it was a success. It all made me wonderfully happy!

    It sounds like you guys had a great week! I love making little ‘dens’ in our living room with piles of duvets and blankets and watching a movie together. We usually get joined by the cat haha! I saw your curry on Instagram and it looked amazing!
    Have a lovely weekend!

    What’s made me happy this week is being able to spend some quality time with my other half and have a good catch up with friends I haven’t seen in a while :) xxx

    What made me happy?! I helped my husband drench our sheep. There weren’t a huge amount, 250 of them, but that was still quite a few. It was nice to spend some time working with him instead of being stuck with the kids! They are all due to lamb in a few days too…so that makes me really happy!!

    I’m new to spottily, too and have to say it makes doing the housework much more fun! xx

    Oh thanks for the netflix recommendation – just ended out modern family binge and needed a replacement!

    Haha I can relate to having a good hairday without having a reason to go out of the house today. Usually I’m not much of a ‘selfie’ person, but that is one of the situations when I’ll share one on Instagram, just to not let my good hairday go wasted.

    I recommend sweet potato curry, it’s delicious :) x
