FIND THE HAPPY – Monday 9th November 2015 – Sunday 15th November 2015

Happy #1: On Wednesday we went to our lovely friends Jack and Daisy’s house for dinner. We have not seen them in quite a while so it was really good to have a catch up over a glass of wine or two. Jack cooked a really delicious stew/casserole type thing. Perfect for the wet, windy horrible day it was.

Happy #2: Jezz doesn’t really eat a lot of chocolate so he never gets an advent calendar. For the past couple of years we have seen the development of the “non-edible” advent calendars. So this year, I decided to treat us both to one! For Jezz I went for the Lego City one. I got myself the Yankee Candle one. I am super excited for 1st December!

Happy #3: It’s the time of year where all the Christmas adverts start to appear on the TV and this year Sainsburys have outdone themselves. Do you remember the Mog books as a kid? You will love this. It made me so happy when I saw it!

Happy #4: On Thursday my work chums and I congregated with our colleagues from our sister school in Eastbourne at The Kings Head Pub in Lewes. We had a really delicious meal and a few drinks. I had the most delicious lamb and potato dauphinoise. Delicious!

Happy #5: On Saturday Jezz and I went up to London to see our friend Rob again. He is off to Canada travelling for a while at the end of the month so we joined his London friends for a goodbye shindig. We saw some friends that we hadn’t seen in a very long time, drank too much Prosecco and generally had a rather lovely silly hilarious time of it all. Thank you Rob for your hospitality and see you next weekend for round 2 *ding ding*

    All these different advent calendars I’ve seen look great. The lego one looks really fun x
