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.
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.
