FIND THE HAPPY – Week 4 – Monday 27th April 2015 – Sunday 3rd May 2015
Happy #1: On Tuesday a good friend who is moving back to Brighton from London later this year came down for a visit. Jezz and I headed to the pub to meet him for a drink after work, another friend who is due to become a father for the first time was also there. I haven’t seen either of them for a while so it was really nice to catch up! We did the pub quiz, failed miserably but did have the most obscene ridiculous burger ever.
Happy #2: This week saw pay day and therefore a wee Primark shop was in order. I picked up a few tops for my holiday at the end of the month, a skirt (reduced to £3… HURRAH) some cute tote bags and some socks. I apparently cant leave Primark without socks that are cute.
Friday was the 1st of May and marked 6 months ago that I quit smoking. I posted about it here
. Quite proud.
Happy #4: A colleague that I work with retired this week, (that is not the happy, she will be hugely missed) and on Friday my work colleagues and I went out. We went for a lovely Greek meal, I had halloumi to start and swordfish as my main, it was delicious! After we went to the pub and had a few drinks. I forgot to take photos of anything exciting here… too busy eating and drinking!
However in the morning there were some dogs painted on the road… so here is a picture of them instead…
This weekend Jezz and I were able to attend the Foodies Festival on Hove lawns
, courtesy of a colleague who gave me some tickets for entry. We met up with some friends there and essentially spend the majority of the day eating and drinking. We shared pork belly sandwich, spring rolls, tempura prawns, chicken satay, LOTS of churros and a hog roast sandwich. Washed down with a pint of cider, pint of beer and a over-priced glass of spritz. We had a lovely time, however I can’t help but feel that if I had paid for the tickets I would have been very annoying. The face value of the tickets was around £13… once in there you had to pay for everything, or everyone was trying to sell you something. Dishes were between £4 and £9, drinks around £5 for a pint. Considering the entry cost I was surprised there wasn’t more to do. However, we didn’t pay to get in so it was fine and we were happy to spend a bit of money on some food. We rounded off with one more drink in the pub, all very much over-fed and sleepy by 5pm. Rock and roll.
FIND THE HAPPY – Week 3 – Monday 20th April 2015 – Sunday 26th April 2015
My new cleanser! I have been dying to try the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm and I treated myself to the 4-piece starter kit which arrived this week and it is just brilliant. Stupidly expensive but brilliant. Yesterday I posted my April favourites
, this certainly made the list!
My parents recently returned from another holiday in Portugal where they have been building a holiday home (check out my Dad’s blog here
). They have lots of orange and lemon trees. They gave me a huge bag of oranges which I juiced. They made the most delicious orange juice!
Happy #3: I have been dying to try the coral coloured nail varnish I received in this months Birchbox. I was not disappointed, I love it! I think it’s going to be great for the summer.
Happy #4: Rainbow Unicorn Cats as my phone wallpaper. What more can I say? I would probably wallpaper my house in this if I could….
Happy #5: Super super lazy weekend with the boy. As I have been riddled with a very serious case of the man-flu a lazy weekend was in order. Literally have worn my jimjams and been at one with a blanket and the sofa. Glorious. I watched Wreck it Ralph, Third Rock from the Sun (bloody love Netflix) played GTA V, drank numerous cups of tea and ate bacon rolls. We also watched Big Hero 6, what a marvellous film that is! Bliss.
