Strawberries

This week’s been a happy one, for me, and I think that’s largely down to it being such a sunny one! It’s made no end of difference to my state of mind- not least because wearing coats on dog walks in June felt totally ridiculous! I so hope this nicer weather is here to stay. Now, weather chitchat over- here’s what else has made me happy this week!

1. Watching a live screening of Kenneth Brannagh’s Romeo & Juliet on Wednesday evening, with Lily James and Richard Madden. A seriously incredible performance, well worth booking tickets for!

2. Hearing baby’s heartbeat at an appointment with my lovely midwife on Thursday. It’s my absolute favourite thing…though possible tied as a favourite alongside feeling so many kicks and wriggles throughout the day.

3. A Mint and White Tea candle from The White Co! It makes our house smell so delicious.

4. Finishing up our binge watch of the new season of OITNB! It was my favourite yet…even though it did make me cry so much my eyes went puffy.

5. Driving to Richmond last weekend, with Spotify sessions blasting in my car and the windows rolled down. AND managing to dodge the rain all that afternoon!

6. The feeling of a post-workout class shower, hair wash, and full body moisturise. The best!

7. A salted caramel cupcake from Hummingbird, eaten in bed on Sunday morning.

8. The nerve of the puppy who came sneaking upstairs to our bedroom the other afternoon, because it was past her dinnertime and she was clearly feeling peckish! She’s never once been allowed upstairs in our house, and the sheer cheek of it did make me laugh!

9. Eating delicious ripe tomatoes from the vines in our garden. They taste all the better for being homegrown! Though, can we really claim them as being homegrown since we bought the plant when it was already flowering?…

10. The jar of Nutella currently calling my name from the kitchen cupboard. I’ve not allowed myself to buy any for so long (too dangerous, you see…) but I figured a small jar as a treat won’t hurt! Nutella with apple slices as a snack is in my immediate future, for sure…

What’s made you happy, this week? :)

I just read this list back after finishing writing all ten points, and realised that they’re all pretty much baby or food related. What can I say, I guess those two things are just the main sources of happiness in my life right now! This week I’ve probably been more hungry than I ever have been before in my life, so it does make sense. Breakfast is on my mind as a fall asleep at night, snacktime comes at any hour of the day (make that ‘many hours of the day’), and I’m so hungry by the time I’m cooking dinner each evening it’s all I can do not to dive into the fridge every five seconds for something to graze on until Jason gets home. Speaking of which, it’s time for me to head to the kitchen…

1. Going on a mini baby-shopping spree in London in the middle of the week! It’s all too easily to fill a basket until it’s overflowing with tiny sleep suits and mini leggings…

2. Discovering the magic of the Beauty Blender (one of those fancy foundation sponges). It gave me easily the most natural looking face of makeup I’ve ever done, I totally love it!

3. Dinner out at Byron with Jason on Thursday evening. We’re all about the milkshakes, fries, onion rings, and that epic Caesar salad Byron seem to do so well! (I’m SO hungry right now, and just typing this has made my belly ache…)

4. The sight of so many tomatoes growing fat and green on the plant in our garden…

5. A slice of chocolate and salted caramel cake from the bakery in our local Waitrose. It was GLORIOUS.

6. Girl chat over milkshakes with Tania and Freya on Wednesday. Always leaves me with an aching belly from so much laughter, and aching teeth from those ultra rich milkshakes…

7. The baby in my belly that always seems to wriggle extra hard when he or she can hear Jason talking. Makes my heart ache with love <3

8. Grapefruit! Pineapple! Mango! Basically all the fruit, because you know how obsessed I am right now. (Honestly, if we don’t have at least two grapefruits in the fruit bowl at any one time, I start panicking…)

9. The new pink cushion on our bed. It’s so pretty and girly in our all grey and white bedroom, it makes me happy every time I look at it!

10. Watching Elsie chase a butterfly whilst out on a walk last Sunday! She’s so cute, it’s kind of ridiculous.

What’s made you happy this week? :)

Ahhhh, the three day weekend. Best thing about this time of year, right, the amount of Bank Holidays we get? There’s nothing like the joy that comes from Sunday arriving and not bringing with it a case of the Sunday blues- because hello lie in on a Monday morning! Though, to be honest laying in is pretty impossible these days, what with my waking up to go to the loo every morning at 5am, and then Elsie’s 6am wake up calls. But hey, it’s all training for September, right?! Anyway, aside from a week of eye-wateringly early starts (thanks again, baby and puppy), here’s what’s made this week a lovely one!

1. Finally, FINALLY getting round to printing and putting up some wedding photos around the house! It’s been on my ‘To Do’ list for such a long time, and it feels so good to have finally ticked it off the list!

2. Feeding the moorhen that’s taken up residence on the pond outside our house! It’s such a sweet little thing, and is partial to a bit of bread each morning for its breakfast…

3. My Friday morning Body Balance class at the gym. I always leave feeling like myself again (after a good few weeks of doing barely any exercise at the start of this year, thanks to first trimester exhaustion) and I’m hoping to keep going as long as I can until baby arrives.

4. Corn thin crackers, with red pepper hummus. Or with peanut butter, or marmite, or just plain. In short, I’m obsessed…

5. The new coconut hair conditioner I’m using at the moment. Smells like summer!

6. A series Jason and I binged on all this week, called The Five. It’s the most gripping thing I’ve watched in ages, and we’re just loving it!

7. Showers of blossom petals. Though not that random snow shower we had on Tuesday…

8. Raspberries in my porridge, green juice on the side, and grapefruit for after. Basically, all the fruit!

9. Having two productive weeks in a row! All thanks to Evernote and those life-saving to-do list folders. I’d be lost without that app! Though mainly I think it just makes me more productive because I like tapping the little tick-boxes so much…

10. And finally, of course, the return of Game of Thrones! Even if sometimes I do find that programme so gory I have to watch from behind a cushion, we still love it a lot. So glad it’s back! What did you all think of the first episode?

Tell me, what’s made it onto your ‘happy list’ for this week? :)

I’m *so* ready for this weekend. We’ve got nothing in the diary, and plan to spend most of the time pottering. Which, as you’ll know, is pretty high on my imaginary list of favourite pastimes! I’m keeping my fingers crossed we have lovely weather, and that Jason and I can head out with the dogs on Sunday morning in bright, crisp sunshine, with a flask of coffee each to boot. Here’s to a happy weekend! And here’s what’s made me happy this week…

1. Jason’s Mum’s famously amazing sticky toffee pudding- dessert after last Sunday’s family dinner. I’ve been thinking about it non-stop all week.

2. Walking Teddy and Elsie along the river in Guildford this afternoon, and seeing so many signs of spring all over the place! Blossom and daffodils everywhere, and so many birds out and about. Oh, and I stole Jason’s gilet to wear whilst I was out, and it’s the cosiest thing ever. It was the nicest walk! Though we did also see a dead heron that the dogs were *obsessed* with, which wasn’t so happy making (pretty gross, to be honest…)

3. Two fun days of filming work this week, with a company called Kalm Kitchen. It was so great to work on something totally different!

4. Spending an evening with Jason babysitting our 2 month old niece! She’s the cutest, and it was so fun playing at being parents for the evening!

5. The vase of brightly coloured tulips currently sitting on our coffee table, brightening up the whole living room.

6. The prospect of mushroom carbonara for dinner this evening. I’m already excited…

7. Embryolisse ‘lait-creme’ moisturiser! I had a sample in a Birchbox a couple of months ago, but only just got round to trying it…and it’s the bomb! I’ve already gone out and bought a full size version…

8. Reading Countrylife magazine! It’s totally my new favourite.

9. A productive week of emails. You know those weeks, where it just feels like you’re smashing through your inbox and everything’s clicking? I love those weeks.

10. Seeing the dogs go loopy for Marmite. It’s their new favourite thing- heaven forbid I dare eat a slice of toast with Marmite on without giving them each a lick of a Marmite-covered teaspoon!

What’s made you happiest this week?
