10 things that’ve made me happy this week!



Oh Friday, I’m so glad you’re here! And that the most disgusting Thursday in the history of the world (aka. yesterday), is over. Because really, how on earth can weather *that* bad even be possible this far in to May? Sometimes I wish the UK were less fickle. It would make life a whole lot less unpredictable. But anyway, to the happy things! This weekend’s set to be a good one- we’re having dinner with friends, are hearing our banns read for the third time at our parish church, will no doubt catch up with family, and also maybe do a little tinkering around with DIY projects in the house too. It’ll be fun! Here’s a little round up of what’s made the past week a lovely one…

1. Lemsip. All day everyday since Tuesday evening. It’s a miracle worker, isn’t it?

2. Listening to Mumford & Sons new album. (God bless Spotify)

3. *All* the fruit. I’m not sure if it’s because my body’s been craving vitamin C and stuff, or that the sunshine’s brought on a mango/raspberry/banana obsession, but all I’ve wanted to eat this week is fruit, and eat it I have! With the kind of gusto I usually reserve for cheese, which really is saying something…

4. The kind nearly-husband who left work in the middle of the day on Tuesday, drove for half an hour, then walked 20 minutes into the forest to come and help me find the GoPro I’d managed to lose (…it’s a long story) in the middle of a patch of thick undergrowth. It was a fairly disastrous morning, but Jason made it come good in the end. Grateful to have him on my team.

5. Iced water, with add-ins (citrus, mint, cucumber). I’ve been drinking litres of the stuff every day! {See also: fruit obsession listed as point no.3}

6. Being able to pick fresh herbs whilst cooking, from the little planters in our garden. They’re thriving out there too, which is seriously happy-making! Who ever would’ve thought herbs survive better outside than on a kitchen window ledge?!

7. Sitting out in the sunshine, and soaking in the rays like a sponge. It felt *so* good.

8. Spotting a sweet old lady tending to the flowerbeds and lawns in the centre of the village just next to ours. She looked so adorable with her gardening gloves and her shears, and she does the finest job keeping those flowerbeds in tip top condition. This is the sort of insignificant moment that makes my heart sing, though I’m never quite sure why.

9. Hummus! Because apparently Wednesday was International Hummus Day (or maybe National, I can’t quite remember), and so it needs mentioning! And also because I have a tub-a-week habit…

10. Eating spoonfuls of Acacia honey, because I can tell myself it’s medicine for my throat but honestly and truly it’s just my favourite sweet treat at the moment.

Three posts I’ve loved reading this week :: Garance’s simple recipe for a superfood pancake || Joanna’s collection of unforgettable wedding moments || & Kathryn’s sweet balcony garden update!

    This is such a lovely post, it just made me happy in itself! But as a newbie gardener I definitely appreciate the ‘pick-your-own’ herbs whilst cooking! A definite day maker despite being such a small thing! Happy Friday indeed!

    Oh I always forget about mango! So good.
    Highlight of my week so far was escaping London for Cambridge yesterday to see one of my best friends, cue a country walk in the rain ‘embracing the wetness’!

    Happy Friday Rosie! Fridge Jugs are the best! I had one last Summer in New Zealand, filled it fresh every day with water, cucumber and lemon or ornage pieces. Good way to get that water in! Have a lovely weekend! X

    Glad you found your camera. At the weekend, I had a frantic half hour running round Castle Acre in Norfolk searching for my son’s tiny cuddly penguin. The relief at finally finding it!

    Spotify is the best thing in the world! I never tried hummus but (I don’t know why) I think is very tasty!

    Losing your Go Pro – not so good. The soon to be hubby finding it again for you – awesome! It’s those sort of things that remind you that you’ve found a good ‘un! x

    I love reading what has made you happy each week, it makes me feel happy too. Spreading the happiness is the way to go!
    I’m just glad that I’m almost half way through my exams and I am still alive. That and the fact I can start using fresh fruit for my smoothies rather than frozen as the weather is improving!

    I love cucumber infused water, and I always check out an album on Spotify first to make sure I love it (always do, isn’t that the way)
