I think it can be easy to look back on a hard week and miss out on those things. A week of bad weather for example can really make it seem as though the whole week was a complete fail. But it probably wasn't. We must all smile at least once a day. I know I do, even if I forget it.
Things that made me happy this week:
ReadingSince having the boys I haven't read many books at all. I have so many on my to read list, so many I have waiting to be read, waiting to be finished. I did decide to be strict with myself and to not start a new book until I had finished other ones, so last week I decided to finally get on and finish The Detectives Daughter. I didn't expect to so quickly become hooked to reading again. I have bought the Mary Poppins book series on Kindle for £4.99 and plan to read them on the way to Britmums, and then on the way home. I'm really excited, especially now I've finished The Detectives Daughter.
Summer WeatherOh the weather has been so so lovely this week. The odd rain shower has been most welcome just to clear the air but then it has been glorious. I've really enjoyed being able to get out to do my walks and even managed a 3 mile walk down the beach with a friend on Wednesday evening.
My Jelly Shoes have been out again this week, I am really loving them.
I am now going to get the dresses and shorts out full time. Oh yeah. See you in a couple of months jeans (well, unless it rains).
Theatre and more Mum-me timeMy mum had 2 free tickets to the theatre on Saturday so once we got home after the zoo we had a quick dinner and then walked to the theatre. The show was....meh. Which was a shame but it was lovely spending time with my mum, I also slept round hers that night too.
Zoo DayOn Saturday we headed over to Banham Zoo. My mum didn't have work so we decided to make the most of our spare day. The weather was shocking and we had to hide in a undercover area near the snow leopards. I wondered if the rain would ever stop. Within an hour it was BOILING. Really really really hot, so it was a really wonderful day.
Running and OpportunitiesBlogging is amazing isn't it? For the people you meet and the opportunities you get. I have been doing fast pace walking for two weeks now and just feel I'm not getting enough out of it and want to take it to the next level and start running. Seeing Katie's passion for it has really inspired me and I'm hoping I can keep it up.
I was lucky enough to be send some running trainers and some running clothes to review. This now gives me no reason to not start and I'm oddly super excited. Me, excited, about running! The girl who one year missed every single Cross Country PE term because I hated it that much.
What made you happy this week?
