10 Happy Things

10 happy thoughts

  1. Rekindling my love for student bars with student prices.
  2. We had a mortgage meeting! It wasn't half as scary as I expected, and it went ridiculously well! Feel like I've dipped my toe in the adults only deep end now!
  3. Had a fab catch up with two of my closest friends at Mowglis. I swear, the food in there is beyond good. If in doubt, always go for the Tiffin!
  4. Feast of Fire! Firey sculptures, sparklers in my drinks, Celtic music and a cheesecake in an easter egg! What more do you want from a night out?
  5. 10. Count them. 10 whole days off work. I've been in serious need of some R&R lately, so being able to take a good chunk off time off is exactly what I needed! I used to only take time off for occasions, or planned things. But seriously, taking time off to just sit around in your pjs with a brew and a book is ridiculously underrated!
  6. Talking the longest, loveliest solo walk on the beach in actual sunshine! I even managed to get a little sunburnt!
  7. Birthday celebrations, good food, good friends and good times! Not my birthday, but those of good friends. Nothing like an excuse to let your hair down, have a few cheeky vinos and spoil someone you love. 
  8. I had the biggest clearout of clothes and accessories that I've had since I moved out. 4 bin bags of clothes for the charity shop and 1 bin bag of pure rubbish. It took hours. I wanted to stop half way through. I regretted even starting but, bloody hell was it worth it once it was over and done with. I don't think my wardrobe has ever looked this empty! It felt like a weight had been lifted that I didn't even realise I was carrying!
  9. Easter. What's not to love about an extended weekend, a truck load of tasty treats and a roast to almost rival Christmas dinner? I spent most of Easter with family and it was fab, catching up and chilling out - all over a few too many hot cross buns of course!
  10. Back on the blog. I unintentionally took most of March off from blogging. I keep banging on about my love/hate relationship with the online world. I want more time offline. But I lack the will power at times to stop myself from aimlessly scrolling through Instagram, and Twitter for the 25th time in as many minutes. I love my blog. I love blogging, the community, the opportunites and friends it has brought me. I don't want to give any of that up. Finding the balance is a work in progress but it feels good to see my fingers dance across the keys and hit the publish button!

What's been putting a smile on your face recently?

Until next time,

  1. Mortgage meeting! That is a big step. Well done! I hope you find your perfect home soon. xx

    1. Ah I can't wait until the day we get our keys to our first home! It's nerved wracking but so exciting at the same time!

  2. Ah 10 days off is the total dream! I can't wait for a holiday! x

    1. It was bliss! Normally I only take time off to travel or for an event, so to have such a long chunk of time off with no plans was a little weird for me but SO worth it! 10/10 would recommend!
