10 things that’ve made me happy this week!



This week has been brought to you by good friends, Pinterest, a serious case of mind over matter, sore muscles, and coffee. I’m not sure why exactly but it’s been such a long, tiring one, and I’m so very glad it’s Friday! This weekend we have absolutely nothing planned, mainly because I’ve been making plans for the weekend of the 30th and 31st thinking that those are the dates for this weekend, and forgot that it’s actually another week away. Oof. In other news, this week Jason came to me and said ‘Teach me how to use Pinterest for work’- and I was like, ‘Uh, OKAY!’ Best task ever! So on that note, let me tell you what else has made me happy this week!…

1. Wednesday night’s combination of takeaway pizzas, and the Great British Bake Off. Basically the most outstanding combination imaginable.

2. Finally being able to take Teddy out for a proper walk! He was going insane being stuck in the house, and driving Jason and I to distraction too. Now he’s able to get out and run again, we’re all a lot calmer!

3. Maple syrup instead of honey as a sweetener for my morning yoghurt-oat-fruit bowls. So tasty!

4. Spending a day working in Jason’s office. It’s always invigorating to be around so many creative, talented people.

5. Making a batch of granola bars that were *just* the right texture, not too crumbly or too stodgy. I’ll share the recipe once it’s perfect…

6. Listening to (Queen) Bey whilst working.

7. My darling best friend and bridesmaid-in-chief, who has done the most amazing job setting wheels in motion for my hen do next year so that she can get dates and places and events booked up early. She is a wonder!

8. Wearing in a pair of boyfriend jeans until they feel softer than pyjamas. The best.

9. Cooler nightime temperatures. Let it be known that I am not a fan of hot summer nights. Cool breezes and wool socks and duvets, please.

10. Wearing my hair in a side-plait. Absolutely my new favourite hairstyle.

Three posts I’ve loved reading this week :: Anh’s beautifully chic outfit || Ala’s photos shot using an old SLR, onto expired film! || + this wonderfully exacting post on Aeropress brewing, on ABM.

What’s on your happy list, for this week?

    I literally can’t even explain how much I love GBBO, I wish it was on every day! Once a week is not enough! Poor old Teddy, glad he’s been able to get back out and about, seems like there’s no stopping him haha! And I have to admit, although I miss the sun, I am finding it a lot easier to sleep this week.

    I’m happy that today it’s TWO WEEKS until I go to Turkey – massive hooray, need to get myself a suitcase though…! And thank you so much for including my post Rosie :) ! x

    I’m so glad that lovely Teddy is feeling better – that sounds like an ideal situation for EVERYONE involved! My main happy thing of the week is that I just found out that I don’t need major hip surgery (at least not for a few years!) I have dodgy hips but the doctor thinks they’ll be able to hold out for a while yet! Phew! I hope you have a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend, Rosie! :)

    Sounds like you’ve had a good week. Boyfriend jeans are the best, as a mummy they’re a part of my daily wardrobe – heck, they were before I was even a mummy – and these autumnal days are making a little sad because I know soon I won’t be able to keep my ankles on show… Sad times!
