Five Happy Things


If there's one thing I've learnt this year to do with Little Winter, it's to be honest. And if I'm being honest, well things have just been really bloody tough these last two weeks.
Like really tough.
So I decided that by continuing with my Five Happy Things post, it gives me the kick up the butt to remind me that the world hasn't ended, that I still have a roof over my head, and that life is still full of wonderful and magical things.Plus cats are still awesome.

My Girls. With feeling down in the dumps, my friends have tried so hard to cheer me up, and I may not thank them in the moment, but I literally feel so grateful for them. And a big snog to two ladies in particular, Sarah and Rosie who have rescued me in my pile of tears and are bringing the beach (kinda) to the Midlands in a few weeks. These girls are the best. They all are.

Avocado's. I bought my first avocado this week and made myself a pretty tasty salad. Admittedly I flopped at cutting it up, but sometimes there are things in life that we are no good at. This is one of them for me. Although thumbs up to the salad I added it to. And yes, this was totally a happy moment.

My Parents. Literally couldn't be anywhere without them. All the love and thankfulness in the world wouldn't quite prove to them how much I appreciate everything they have done in these last few months. Parent's really are on another level aren't they?

Spring Cleaning. On Sunday morning, I put my music on full pelt, grabbed the hoover and some cleaning equipment, and gave my place a good old spring clean. And actually, I felt so much better and calm knowing that the cushions were plumped up, the rug was fur free and the kitchen was as spotless as it could be.

A haircut. I booked in for a haircut, just for a trim and to re-shape my fringe. And well basically, just for a good hairwash. It was definitely a good relaxed hour in the salon.With fresh smelling hair.

I'll leave you with a quote which quite aptly fits right now - "There is a light at the end of the tunnel. And if you can't see that light, you haven't quite reached the end".
Tell me, what things made you happy this week?


  1. Your week was amazing :) Mine is making patients feel happy. I'm a nurse

  2. I had a haircut too this week and it was so nice :D xx

  3. This is a lovely reflection on the week! I also did a huge clean out of my house last weekend, and it's always made a bit more enjoyable with some loud music!

  4. Cleaning is always so therapeutic, it feels like a fresh start. This week I'm moving home after dropping out of university. I was so miserable there and the thought of another two years filled me with dread, so I gave up and it's the best feeling ever. I stuck it out for the first two years and I'm really proud of myself for that! xx

    I had a major de cluttering session this week and it feels like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders!
    I also got a pay rise and my second promotion at the company I've been working at for only 9 months so feeling pretty proud of myself for that :)

  6. Sorry you're going through a tough time at the moment. I've recently been through a break up myself and trying to remain positive and motivated has been so hard. I've been thinking about doing a happy list on my blog is order to cheer myself up and reflect on all the things I can still enjoy. Hope you feel better soon, your site is as beautiful as ever.

    Here's a quote that always helps me feel a little more hopeful: 'There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind' - C.S Lewis. When we're feeling down, I think it's important to remember than we're never going to be stuck in one mindset for the rest of our lives. We're always going to have ups and downs but things will always get better I believe :) xx

  7. Such a lovely post! I agree a spring clean makes everything feel a little better!

    Hope you continue to feel better day by day! - A Beauty & Lifestyle Blog

  11. The quote of the tunnel is my mantra of this period and read that on your blog make me happy that I'm only in the world that has a "strange" period.
    I love avocado and yes it's difficult to cut up but sometimes it depends on the maturity of the fruit :)
    Great post!
