#findthehappy – Week 12 – Monday 10th August 2015 – Sunday 16th August 2015
Happy #1 – Ice Cream. Ice cream will always be something that makes me happy. I found a box of mini-Magnums with the new pink raspberry and black espresso ones and well…. nom. The raspberry ones are delicious! Plus as they are “mini” I don’t feel quite as naughty eating one.
Happy #2 – My brother and I headed over to Peacehaven again this week to go and see the parentals. We had fajitas and Mum made a delicious cake! I couldn’t help but feel like I was being watched though when I ate my slice….
Happy #3 – I go past Palmeira Square in Hove every day, and have noticed this year how much effort and care go into the flowers there. Even in the rain it looks so pretty.
Happy #4 – A long time ago, probably about 7/8 years ago I took a jewellery making course at City College, in Brighton. I never continued with it, for one reason or another but I thought all of the things I had made had got lost. However, I have recently been going through some boxes, having a big sort out and I found all the items that I made. They certainly do look a little home-made but still I am quite proud of them and very pleased that I found them again. The silver piece in the middle was made by carving a shape into a cuttlefish and then pouring molten silver into the mould (this is called cuttlefish casting). It has a small hole that I drilled through to make it into a pendant, so I think I should get a chain perhaps to keep it on! Certainly it would be a piece of jewellery that no one else would have!
Happy #5 – On Saturday, myself, Jezz and our friends Mike, Gemma and Charlie headed up to Waterhall in Brighton for the yearly one day festival Shakedown. We met up with some other friends there and had THE BEST time ever. We drank, we danced, we painted our faces. Everyone seemed to be having an awesome time, I am sure there were lots of sore heads in the morning. I know mine certainly was! It was really good to cut loose and prance around in a field for a day. Thank you to amazing friends too for making it so much fun. A massive well done and thank you to the Shakedown team for putting on a brilliant day. Can’t wait for next year!!
