Made Me Happy This Week


Thank goodness for the weekend! It hasn't been a bad week or anything, I just feel as if I haven't left the house. I have of course, on a couple of occasions, but not for any great length of time, and as much as I adore our home...I want to be outside for a little while! I've had a lot of at-home type things to do, and I've just tried to get on with them so that most of the bigger tasks, chores, diy's, are out of the way, but now I'd quite like some fresh air and a view of something other than these four walls.

1. Our new Mr and Mrs pyjamas from Next, I love them! My grandma got them for us to take away with us later this year. I can't wait to wear them.

2. Our anniversary, it was a completely perfect day in our favourite city. We also had the best dinner, although most of mine came home with me, as clearly my eyes are bigger than my belly. In my defence, it was the biggest plate of risotto I've ever seen! 

3. We don't do anniversary gifts, but while we were out last week, Paul bought me a vintage teaspoon that has the sweetest Harry Potter related quote stamped into it. I absolutely love it!

4. The late afternoon light at this time of year. The way it shines into our living room makes me so happy.

5. Some new Easter decorations. I realised that we have decorations for so many holidays, but none for Easter, so now we do, and they are the cutest little things.

6. The sweetest girl in Lush, who's name I wish I'd asked for, gave a valentines bath bomb, just because it was our anniversary.

7. My undying love for The Greatest Showman soundtrack.

8. Walks around Edinburgh in the evening, with my favourite person.

Made Me Happy This Week


What a crazy week it's been. My gran have moved in with my mum, which is causing no end of hilarious situations. Her house is currently being renovated so she'll only be there until it's all finished. Paul and I have been so busy, each separately and with different wedding thing's at home, I'm baking cake for my nieces birthday tomorrow and Paul's dad has been up making more noise fitting the cupboard in our bedroom. This weekend will be a nice treat though, as it's our 12 year anniversary on Sunday. We don't have anything big planned, just a day out with an early dinner, I'm really looking forward to it. Especially the dinner, as we've been so good with our eating lately. It'll be a nice treat.

1. The Greatest Showman! I don't know what's taken me so long to see this film but it's one of the best I ever have. Everything about it is amazing, and the soundtrack has basically been on repeat from the minute I got home from the cinema. It's probably still on as you're reading this.

2. Wearing converse again for the first time in what seems like month's. It's starting to get that little bit warmer again so these things are once again possible.

3. Making decorations with C, for her little girls birthday party this weekend. We can do some amazing things with cardboard and paint let me tell you. Here's a look at some we did from a few years ago.

4. An afternoon in Edinburgh, mainly for Paul to have his hair cut, but also giving us the opportunity have a walk around and grab a coffee. Decaf still.

5. The Willy Wonka themed birthday cake, I'm really quite pleased with how it turned out. 

6. My teenie tiny milk bottle from my mum. She was having lunch at a deli near us, and the milk for her coffee came in a tiny milk bottle. She asked if she could buy one from them for me, she's done this before with a teacup and saucer. She's so sweet.

7. Clean hair! Never underestimate how much better having clean hair can make you feel.

8. Finishing one month of Polaroids!
