Five Things That Made Me Happy This Week #3

I’m so happy to be back doing these again, I really enjoy sitting down and thinking about all the things I’m grateful for for that week. Let’s jump straight into it!

1) Family BBQ

So as last week ended, we started the weekend with a little family BBQ. I tucked into salads, and veggie sausages and halloumi and all that good stuff. Was so nice to chill in the sunshine with family and kick off the long weekend in style.

2) Bank Holiday

If you live in the UK you’ll know that this week was a bank holiday, meaning I was able to extend my weekend out with 3 days off. It was so nice to just have that extra day to spend with my husband and get some chill time in. I was so grateful to have some time to just sleep and catch up.

3) A Yellow Office

You may know by now that I flipping LOVE yellow. Like, really like it. As I work from home I had this sudden desire to paint my office yellow. Because why the heck not. So over the bank holiday I went ALL OUT YELLOW. The picture above is what it looks like now, it’s actually a much brighter yellow but I couldn’t get the colour really on camera. I also repurposed the table you can see there, it was a dull scuffed white (or dirty white). I painted it all grey to go with the yellow, and added some yellow touches, along with a picture I love of my mum and I from when I was little. It makes me so happy working in this space every day now.

4) Photoshoot

On Wednesday I got to do something SUPER exciting, and I got to do a photoshoot with Alexandra Cameron. I wrote a whole post on my experience  if you want to find out more about it or to see the 2 other photos that I had done too.

5) Lols With Friends

Yesterday I met with some amazing bloggers after work for a chit chat and a catch up with some drinks and laughs. There were some hilarious stories told and shared, it was great fun.
Go and check out their blogs and spread some love!

Next Friday will be my birthday (eek) so I’ll catch you then!

Have a great weekend all and please tell me what your happy things were this week?

        I’m just waiting for an accessible property now but they said I was only allowed a one bedroom despite my doctors and OT advice, that was overruled yesterday, so yay!
