It has been quite a while since we have had one of these! I have let things slide! In case you need reminding, #findthehappy is where I look back on the week that has been and find 5 things that have made me happy that week. The idea being that I will have something to look back on through the #findthehappy tag that I can see to remind me of happy times.

So here we go.. back in business…

FIND THE HAPPY – Monday 2nd November 2015 – Sunday 8th November 2015

Happy #1: Technically this would have been the previous week, however the 1st November saw one whole year since I quit smoking! I cannot say it has always been easy, but it was certainly easier to quit than I thought it would be. I feel very proud of myself, stupid for having ever started, and pleased that it is all over and done with. I do not have any desire to start again, I do not miss it at all.

Happy #2: On Tuesday I went to go and see Priscilla Queen of the Desert at the Theatre Royal Brighton with Jo. It is one of our favourite films and we have been desperate to see the show since we saw it was on a couple of years ago. Lucky for us another tour was doing the rounds so on Tuesday we met after work. We had Wagamamas for dinner (YUM) and then went to go and watch the show. It was so good, 3 glasses of wine and all that glitter… goodness… I cannot begin to explain the joy.

Happy #3: On Friday we enjoyed a really delicious dinner with our friends Angie and Dan at their flat. We were joined by their flatmate Christa and also Jo and Ed. It was nice to have a very civilised dinner over a glass of wine. Thank you for inviting us! :)

Happy #4: I saw these in the window of a shop when we popped past Poole on our way back from Portland in October. I just had to have them! They are the comfiest things I have ever put on my feet as they have memory foam insoles. It is like walking on clouds. And I mean… look at them…

Happy #5: On Sunday my closest family all gathered to celebrate the 50th Birthday of my aunts. We enjoyed a very delicious 3-course meal at the Ashdown Park Hotel. We had canapes and Pimms to start, the meal, and then cake and coffee. It was wonderful and we had a really lovely time! Happy Birthday Lisa and Joanne! :)

    Congrats on a year being a non smoker!! My happy thing this week is my daughter became an expert climber and found ways to get onto high places, I suppose I shouldn’t be too happy because it’s another reason not to turn my back on her but I can’t help be a little proud! Haha!
