100 Happy Days – Week 1

I have completed my first week of the 100 Happy Days challenge and it has been great! I have been paying more attention to those little things that make me smile and ignoring those ones that don’t!

I started the challenge on Monday. It is hardest day of the week for me but going to bed early and getting to read a book was blissful!

Hubby does most of the cooking in our household and as the creative chef that he is, he can be a little messy. Working together and getting our kitchen looking spotless made my day! (Those little things in life!)

An acquaintance of my husband grows a lot of veggies at home, one of them is the Oca (Oxalis Tuberosa). The Oca is a tuber grown in the Peruvian Andes; I used to eat them when I was young but was never a big fan. I haven’t eaten them in over 11 years! He sent us some and I am looking forward to growing our own and trying them again.

After a very grey winter, I am loving spring! It has continued raining but all the pretty seasonal flowers brighten up those grey days!
Lovely daffodils

I took last Friday off work and took my mother in law for an afternoon tea to celebrate her birthday! We had a lovely afternoon and I am glad we got to spend some quality time together.

Saturday was another exciting day! I got to spend it with my friend Sarah; she lives in Manchester now so I don’t get to see her as often as I would like to. We have started making some plans so I hope to see her again pretty soon!

A few months ago, I got asked by some friends whether I could do their wedding invitation. It makes me feel very happy when people trust me to do something so important. I showed them on Sunday the first draft of the invitation and they liked it! I finished it yesterday and now it is all ready for the printers! Happy days!

Hope you enjoyed reading this post and that maybe you get inspired to take part of the challenge! Documenting those happy moments will make them last forever!

Day 32 – Dun Cow

Tonight we had our Christmas meal which we booked a couple of weeks ago. A couple was running a little late that by the time we sat down, I was very hungry. I was so hungry that I completely forgot to take any pictures of the very delicious food.

Tonight, I want to share one of the top things I love and that is… spending time with friends. My picture for today is of all us sat around the table having a good time.

A Christmas get toguether.
