#findthehappy – Week 13

I know… I know… I am late this week! Apologies!!
I have temporarily had to move house and as a result got a bit distracted, however I did find some time for some fun things last week…
#findthehappy – Week 13 – Monday 17th August 2015 – Sunday 23rd August 2015
Happy #1 – My beautiful flat mate aka “The Wife” returned home this week after a 3-week European adventure with her boyfriend. I am very jealous of what sounds like an amazing adventure! They bought me back mayonnaise from France and some sweeties. We celebrated the return with some Aperol Spritz and watched a movie (A Walk Among the Tombstones – bloody dark, but quite enjoyed it, check it out. Be prepared to need some Disney animated animals afterwards), absolute bliss of an evening.

Happy #2 – Dentist. A controversial one. While the actual event itself certainly was not remotely fun, I feel very happy that I have done it. My Mum was always very good at getting my brother and I to go to the dentist regularly as kids and to take care of our gnashers. However, after going travelling…. *cough* 6 or 7 years ago*cough* I have not been to the dentist. It has been playing on my mind and I have been totally rubbish about doing anything about it, but last week finally I did and this week I had my treatment. £130 down and one filling later I am good for another year. But the peace of mind is certainly something happy in my week. If you haven’t been in a while, go. It will be worth it in the long run! If you are in the UK find a local NHS Dentist here

Happy #3 – On Thursday the work troops finally gathered together to celebrate surviving another summer by indulging in an alcoholic beverage… or 4. On the way home I got Grubbs for dinner, double mushroom burger and onion rings. Excessive but probably a very good idea… yes? right?

Choosing a Thursday seemed to be a good idea, until it was Friday morning and we all found ourselves sat back in the office with varying levels of hangover. The day was saved by our Accounts Administrator, Sam returning from a trip to the bank with a bag of beige pastry goods from Forfars. Genuine hero.

Happy #4 – I wrote a few weeks ago about my excitement for my favourite blogger/vlogger/ Sprinkle of Glitter releasing her book. This week showed the sneaky release of her 2016 diary. Now I cannot wait for the start of 2016! It is full of such pretty pages, and what I really like is each page has something different on. Something that all owners of the diary can interact with, recipes, quotes, hash tags. It’s pretty. I must get a pretty pen to write in it. 
Again, it is probably aimed at an audience somewhat than I am myself, but it makes me happy… and isn’t that what this blog is all about? :) 
 

Happy #5 – The weekend was spent with Jezz and our London based chum Robert in London. We went up to celebrate the birthday of our friend Becky on the Saturday and decided to make a weekend of it. We drank too much, slept too little and Rob broke his toe doing some tube acrobatics.

We went and played in the a somewhat lacklustre maze in the Coronation Gardens in Leyton (pretty park, crap maze).

I also got to go to the Lush in Stratford and got a bit over excited, but managed to stop at £30 so it could have been worse. Lush you devil, you will be the reason I am declared bankrupt…. (I will smell GREAT though).
All in all a bloody marvellous weekend. Thank you Robs for your hospitality.

    That is good! I think the fact I moved out and had to be all independent meant things slid! Growing up is hard! :'( hehe!

    The diary is so nice, I would recommend it, certainly if you are a fan of Louise. x
