Five happy happenings #20

Soooo, it’s been a while since one of these happy posts. My bad. In my defence, work has been super busy and both Mr Mouse and I have succumbed to a couple of particularly rubbish bugs which have left us fairly drained. Still, it’s October (my favourite month, like about 92% of all bloggers), the […]

It seems a very odd time to be posting about happy things because it feels as if the world is rapidly going mad. We haven’t had a day recently without hearing about horrendous things happening somewhere – it’s such a traumatic time for so many people, in so many countries, that writing about how the […]

Five happy happenings #17

Ah, I love a three day working week. As I mentioned here, I spent a couple of days in Glasgow last weekend and it was great to explore somewhere different without any real plans or timetable. I also took the Tuesday after the bank holiday off so didn’t go into the office until Wednesday, which […]

 It’s been a funny ol’ couple of weeks – let’s just say that I’m really looking forward to the long weekend coming up in the UK… I have had some happy things, though: The smell of freshly-washed bedding dried outside.

Five happy happenings #15

We’ve just spend a week in a cottage by the sea in Aberdeenshire and I’m now suffering from severe post-holiday blues. Admittedly it rained/snowed/hailed/sleeted for almost the entire week but just occasionally the sun would come out and we could see the view above from our bedroom and everything felt better. I might do a […]

I can’t believe it’s almost February; January has flown by. Mr Mouse and I decided that trying make any diet/exercise changes in a month where the main priority is to not give in to the temptation to stay in bed and hide from the world was fairly pointless, so our ‘New Year’ starts tomorrow, with […]

Christmas feels so long ago already – I miss the tree and the lights (and the time off work) but I’m rather glad to be getting on with 2016, I think. Here are some happy-making things that have happened so far: I found the biggest mug I’ve ever seen in the Paperchase sale. See the photo, […]

2015’s happy happenings

2015 was a fairly good year, really; there were some really rather crap bits but any year that ends with one’s wedding can’t really be considered terrible. Here are my best bits: Marple arrived at Chez Mouse. She’s a moody little bugger who hates being picked up, loathes taking tablets, meows incessantly for no reason, […]

So, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts and I have no real excuse other than life getting in the way. You may think it’s because I’ve had nothing happy to write about but you’d be mistaken. On the contrary, rather a lot of good things have happened since my last 5 […]

It’s been a fairly quiet couple of weeks. I had a lot of overtime to use so have been working 3 day weeks – I could definitely get used to extra-long weekends. Now if only the sun would come out for more than 3 minutes at a time… Onto five of my happy things: 1. […]
