I’m currently sitting in a silent house (bliss!) all of the kids are back to school and nursery , the teen is away at a freind’s house and for the first time in about 4 months I have a couple of hours to myself! (Insert all of the heart eyes here!!) (oh wait … I actually can!😍😍😍) So I decided to dust off my typing fingers, pour myself my twohundredandtwentysecond cuppa of the day and type up a happy wee bloggity blog post.
I’m equal parts dismayed at how quickly the summer holidays passed by and relieved and happy that I survived the busiest working weeks of my year! I’m literally hanging by a thread this year …
Well actually hanging by some bright pink physio tape, but my reward for hanging on to he end of that rope is a wonderfully chilly, dark and oh so peaceful Friday afternoon. It’s like a delicious little prelude to my favourite seasons and I have celebrated by popping a chicken into the oven and by having a lovely pot of lentil soup bubbling away in the kitchen. Days like this are truly my happy place.
And the icing on this delicious Autumn/summer hybrid of a cake are these red jewels
Other things making me happy this week? In no particular order..
The Olympics – how amazingly well have team GB done?! We’ve been blown away and completely glued to Rio 2016 . So much so that I fear our sky planner may never recover! We are down to 6% and I fear a wee white flag might pop up out of the top of the sky box at any moment!
My amazing hubby- he has picked up all of my slack this week, picked up all of the spinning plates and juggling balls that have fallen all around me while I haven’t been able to move or lift or really function for most of this week. (Actually for most of the summer) I have made sure to have some beer chilling for him tonight, I’m not sure anyone has ever deserved it more.
My fox trots – my adorable baffles (slippers) that have been aptly named by my girly. I basically live in them every day they make me so so happy whenever I look down and see their cute little faces! I may need to order multiple pairs before Next are sold out!! I can’t imagine a future without Fred and Ginger and this pair are already wearing slightly thin!
My kiddos – they always make me happy but this week they have really stepped up to help their poor old broken mothership. Nothing like a wee bit of vulnerability to bring out the best in people ❤️
We are tired but happy and looking forward to enjoying a quiet weekend at home, resting and recovering from our busy back to school week.
Happy Friday lovelies ☺️❤️
