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:
CardsIt was my birthday on Thursday and I absolutely love the cards that my husband got me from him and from the boys too. The words are lovely in each of the cards which makes them that extra bit special.
WellibobsMy mother in law kindly gave me some Joules vouchers for my birthday so, this weekend with the 25% discount offer, I popped to the Southwold store at the first available opportunity to purchase some Wellibobs. I've wanted a pair for sooooo long and am delighted now I have some! I think I will wear these a lot, as a regular pair of boots throughout the Autumn and the Winter. And look at the pretty floral pattern too.
The OriginalsI didn't get to see my mum on Thursday so on Friday I suggested a night in with her and my brother. My brother was staying at my mums this week so I requested one of our favourite dinners and we all watched Captain Phillips together.
I absolutely loved it, and spending quality time with the two originals in my family was fantastic and made me feel very content.
(Also, high fives for two Tom Hanks films in a row this week. Saving Mr Banks on Thursday and this on Friday. Go me!!)
Little MissMy mum bought me a pair of sunglasses early on in the Summer as an early birthday present, as a result I didn't have anything to unwrap on Thursday, but you know...when you are a grown up it doesn't matter and a card is truly enough. However she did give me a little something on the day and I absolutely love it.
My boys love the Mr Men books and for Harry's birthday his Grandad and Grandma bought him the complete collection. I think these are wonderful books and my mum bought me the Little Miss Twins book. It is so cute and I did laugh when I unwrapped it. (I'm a twin if you didn't know, although I have a brother not a sister)
HaircutHarry started preschool this week and on Monday it was his turn for a haircut. I never know what to ask for as 'short on the sides and spiky on top' isn't really that simple as you then have to give numbers and lengths and it's all so faffy. I ended up asking for a number 2 at the sides and for it to be long on top. I think it looks really cool and it wasn't until we saw my brother later that day that we realised they have similar styles.
New JumperI ordered a new jumper from H&M. I am a bit obsessed with their clothes at the moment and love this floral design. I ordered it in a large and it is HUGE but I am going to keep it as I quite like the oversized look of it, especially when teamed with skinny jeans. I think it will be ideal when layering in the colder months and will be extra snuggly at night time.
What made you happy this week?
