Hola one and all! How are we all? I hope everyone who reads this is spending time enjoying the little happy things. They’re what make the world go round, don’t ya know? Here’s what’s been tickling me lately: 1. A sweet evening reading with the window open. To be honest, I was daydreaming more than…

Wonderful Wednesday 20 June 2018

It’s still important to make note of the little things 🙂 Here’s what’s made me happy this week: 1. Time. I feel like my life has calmed down a lot lately. I’m no longer chasing my tail and feel I have more time. We’ve made a family decision that, within the bounds of our comparatively…

Wonderful Wednesday 30 May 2018

Hello and welcome to another Wonderful Wednesday! Without further ado, here’s what’s been bringing a smile to my little face this week: 1. Iced coffee. I’m not sure I really like coffee. I like the idea of it. I LOVE the smell of it. But after I’ve taken a deep inhale of that wonderful aroma…

Wonderful Wednesday 2 May 2018

Happy midweek everyone! It’s the lushest, greenest, fullest time of the year and it’s pretty bloomin’ lovely up here in the North. I’m all for finding the lovely little things that make me smile and remembering that I’ve got a whole lorra loveliness to be thankful for. And here’s what made the cut this week:…

Wonderful Wednesday 25 April 2018

Eh Oh ladies and gents. Hope you’re all fine and dandy on this lovely jubly Wednesday. It’s apparently the most depressing day of the week. Too far from the last weekend and too long to wait until the upcoming weekend. I can believe that. And so I’ll be forever grateful to Sally for giving and…

Wonderful Wednesday 11 April 2018

This week’s left me feeling fulfilled and stimulated… but oh so tired! We’ve been hip hopping around the country, seeing friends, spending time with family and it’s all been lovely, but now I’m ready for a few peaceful days to pitter and potter around the house again. Ying and yang innit. Speaking of which –…

Wonderful Wednesday 28 March

Happy Wonderful Wednesday everyone. What’s been happening? I’m collecting all kinds of happy thoughts this week after a BUSY spell. I really don’t like being busy. I like to catch my breath each day and notice what I’m doing. I was once making arrangements to be picked up by someone on the way to a…

Wonderful Wednesday 14 March 2018

It’s supposed to be #wonderfulwednesday but this week’s been pretty awful. Exhaustion, illness, stress and the odd panic attack have all featured, as has the odd retreat into a couple of wine-dazed stupors to combat all of the above. But that’s what this is about isn’t it? To find the fun among the grot? To…

Wonderful Wednesday 21 February 2018

I’m writing this Wonderful Wednesday post on returning from a blissful week in the Scottish Highlands, where the sea sparkled and the sand shone. Now it’s back to normal, but that’s not really so bad, and there are plenty of happy things to notice, if you take the trouble. 1. The birds are back! Their…

Wonderful Wednesday 7 February 2018

Top of the morning / afternoon / evening to you on this cold cold Wednesday! I’ve been freezing my little socks off this week, due both to the cold outside and the fact that we chose this week to have a NEW BOILER installed! On the coldest day of the year! Nuts! But we are…

Wonderful Wednesday 31 January 2018

Wow – even January is whizzing by for me this year – anyone feel the same? Maybe it’s because the weather hasn’t been quite as atrocious as usual! Here’s what’s made me happy this week: 1. Getting out on a good long walk. We walked all the way along Grasmere’s shores a few days ago,…

Wonderful Wednesday 17 January 2018

Hello folk and folkesses how are we all today? It’s been another whirlwind of a week, but not in a bad way. I’m feeling pretty happy of late. I’m finding myself in the world again after a sleep-deprived state of weirdness following the birth of my little girl a few months ago. I’m remembering what…
