#findthehappy – Week 10

#findthehappy – Week 10 – Monday 29th June 2015 – Sunday 5th July 2015
Phew what a week! Non-stop go go go at work and outside of work….
Happy #1 – As it was Jezz’s birthday on Sunday 28th June we went out with his parents and brother for a birthday meal on Monday. We went to a great Lebanese restaurant Kambis¬†on Western Road, we go there quite a lot! I had my favourite lamb shawarma. We then went to Jojo’s Gelato across the road for pudding. I had a delicious strawberry and chocolate sauce crepe. Felt thoroughly sick and happy afterwards.
Happy #2 РOn Tuesday Jo and I had tickets booked for the special premier showing of Amy at the Duke of York cinema. I have always been a massive fan of Amy Winehouse and was very excited to see the movie. It is fantastic, but so, so sad. I left the cinema with a very heavy heart. It is a great insight into her story, and if you are a fan you should go and see it. Just be prepared to have your heart broken.

Happy #3 – On Wednesday I had made plans to have dinner and wine on the beach with my friend Gemma after work. It has been a real scorcher of a day so we went to Tesco’s and bought a rotisserie chicken, salad and a baguette (and maybe some cake… perhaps….maybe…..) We made chicken sandwiches, drank wine and put the worlds to rights while watching a seagull trying to eat a fish. It was glorious.

Happy #4 – I have previously mentioned my favourite blogger/YouTuber Sprinkle of Glitter (aka Louise Pentland) before. I am a bit of a fangirl and think she is just plain fabulous. She gives young women a very positive message in an otherwise very pressured society. Something that I feel quite strongly about. If you keep up with her internet antics you will know that Thursday saw the release of her new book “Life with a Sprinkle of Glitter“. I have had it on pre-order since it was announced and was far too excited about it’s arrival. It came, its lovely. I am definitely a little (a lot) older than the intended audience but that does not mean I cannot appreciate the messages held within its pages. I could ramble on for ages, but it is lovely, and I am savouring each page like a delicious box of chocolates.

Happy #5 – On Sunday Jezz, Jo, Ed and I all went to the Odeon cinema to watch Jurassic World finally. I thoroughly enjoyed it, it’s silly, it’s loud,the characters are painfully one dimensional but sometimes you just have to let go and ride it out. It made me nervous, happy and nostalgic. And… well… dinosaurs!! WOOP!
