Happy Sunday | Week Eighteen

Whether or not you think Sunday is the end of the week, or the beginning of a new one, I thought it would be a nice idea to look back on the week that has just past and to look at the things that have made me happy and made me smile.
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:

Different Style

On Sunday we went to a Country Fayre in a town nearish to us. The fayre is held every year at a stately home and I love going. The weather was forecast as rain and storms but it was still hot so I embraced a style I have always envied and went for shorts, a vest and wellies. The shorts are two sizes too big but with a belt were reasonably ok. It actually turned out to be SO hot and I regretted the wellies....and not putting on suncream.

Changes

I hadn't been able to find a before and after photo to show my weight loss and the change in my body shape. So when I tried on this leopard dress to see if it was suitable for our date night I remembered I had posted about it before on Instagram. Seeing the changes made me quite proud...and also surprised me as usually I would look back on photos of me with long hair and want to grow it back, but this made me happy I had it cut short.

Date night

We haven't had a date night in a while and with my husband booked for laser eye surgery on Thursday we wanted to just have a bit of time together to talk about life in general and of course to discuss the surgery too.
We had a wonderful meal and enjoyed a bottle of our favourite Rose Prosecco...which seems to be a tradition for us to purchase when we visit this place.
The view was amazing as we looked over the Norfolk Broads and watched the sun set. We'd finished our meal by 8 o clock so sat in the garden area, by the water (once we managed to find a small spot that didn't have goose poo on it) enjoyed our wine, and a whiskey for him and Baileys for me. It was wonderful.





The Laser <say this in the same style as Dr Evil>

My husband was so so so brave this week and finally took a big step and went for Laser Eye Surgery. We got to shop for some new non-prescription sunglasses for him which was a novelty.
So far things are going great and his eyes seem to be doing well. I'm so proud of him for going through with it, I'm not sure I could!

No33

The day after my husbands eye surgery we had to go to Norwich for him to have a check up. The appointment was at 9 in the morning so we went for some breakfast after. I've always wanted to visit No33 Cafe in Norwich and after finally realising where it is we couldn't walk past and not go in. I had a delicious Salmon Benedict (although it wasn't as good as the one my husband makes) washed down with a big cup of Americano coffee....black with 2 sugars of course.
Hopefully we pop back soon to try some of their cakes which looked amazing!
