Happy Monday ~ 10 Things

Since today is the tenth as well as a Monday I figured I’d do a double whammy of 10 Things that make me happy! First… tea. I honestly cannot function without it. Minus my cuppa in the morning I am not even human. I am a Wild Thing!
Secondly… scarves. I actually wear them all year round. Yep… even in the summer. But in winter I get to pull out the big, chunky, woollen ones… love ’em!
Believe it or not, cooking makes me happy. Sometimes I find it relaxing, but mostly I find it satisfying.
Documentaries. Me & Tom watch them a lot. I especially like ones about nature, sea life & Dinosaurs!
Oh Comely magazine. It’s similar to the Aussie magazine Frankie but it’s British. The artwork they feature is always absolutely stunning 🙂
 Family! Top photograph is my brother, my mum & me at my brothers wedding reception three years ago. Second photograph is dad & me when I am but a wee toddler!
Lemon desserts. My absolute favourite! I’ve heard a rumour at work that we will have lemon cheesecake on the new menu… excited!
Reading. I read a lot. I like to be transported to different worlds, stories, lives…
My Tom. Yep, he makes me pretty darned happy!
Pink. Something about this colour just makes me HAPPY!!!!
So ten things that are guaranteed to make me happy. To link in to 10 Things, pop over to Shimelle‘s blog!

Happy Monday

Happy Monday!

Today I’m grateful for… NOT being on a double shift at work, the amazing weather we’ve had for the last week, my X Factor fest last night,  & cinnamon & raisin bagels at 1am!

Happy Monday

Happy Monday!

I don’t know about you but I’ve had a crazy weekend… work was insanely busy & when I got home early evening yesterday I fell asleep!
I’m grateful the weekend is over… this week I’m looking forward to seeing my brother, catching up with friends, learning how to use indian inks, getting my glasses fixed & days off, ha ha!

Happy Monday

*Today I’m grateful for supportive friends & family, having a great time over Drummer Boy’s birthday, X Factor, amazing food**, watching Super8 (it’s fanatastic!) and meeting Bump (my soon-to-be nephew!).
*And I’m very excited about my best friends wedding this coming weekend in Cornwall! Eeeeep!


**Edit: It was my other half’s birthday & we went to the Magdalen Arms, Iffley Road, Oxford for dinner & had lamb with dauphinoise potatoes which was heavenly!

Happy Monday

This week I’m grateful that through the rioting last week everyone that I love & care about stayed safe.
I’m glad that the riots appear to be over.
I’m grateful that I’ve now gone part-time & will actually be able to concentrate on my college work.
Making me happy last week was our awesome boat trip!

Happy Monday

I decided to reintroduce Happy Monday & use it to reflect on what is making me happy right now…

*The weather. It’s mostly sunny. Living in England you learn to be grateful for these small bright spells!

*Seeing my dad last weekend & meeting my brother for lunch on Tuesday. My family & I don’t see a lot of each other so when we do I really appreciate it.

*My new camera is making me happy. I’m having so much fun with it!

*Very much looking forward to Wednesday as DB & I are renting a houseboat for two nights & taking to the Thames. It should be a lot of fun!

(Mum, do you remember when we went through a phase of having kiwi for breakfast? I may give it another go… something other than toast would be nice for a change!)
