Life Lately || 10 Things That Made Me Happy

Happy end of the first 4 day week of May! We still have another 4 day week to look forward to which is absolutely glorious. It’s also my birthday month, and the weather is getting nicer day by day. Everything’s looking up! 

10 things that have made me happy

>>> I had SO many baby snuggles this past weekend. Between nephews and friends new baby infants, I was absolutely spoiled. 

>>> That extra day off work. Need I say more? 

>>> Kimmy Schmidt Season 2. 

>>>Freakshakes. Where have they been my whole life. Absolutely amazing. I couldn’t have another one again soon but it was so worth it. 

>>> The owner of the company that I work for was here in London this week, and I always love team meetings that involve being bought lunch! 

>>> Walking from north of Regent’s Park all the way to Stratford along the canals. It was nearly 10 miles long and it was a wonderful walk. It wasn’t hot, but I managed to wear a t-shirt the majority of the time! 

>>> A delicious dinner with friends on Wednesday evening to celebrate a birthday.

>>> The wonderful, wonderful weather this week. Yes, there’ve been some spots of rain, but the warmth? Awesome!

>>> We had a farewell lunch for one of Sam’s best friends at the weekend – he’s going to live and work in Australia. We were hosted by a lovely family who have an amazing set-up: beautiful four-bed house, garden and two beautiful children. Jealous!

>>> Election Day! I can’t vote in the London Mayoral Election, but the polling station is just across the road and I can see it from my desk where I work. It’s exciting to see everyone file in with their ballot papers. Go, democracy!

We are up in Yorkshire this weekend meeting with all our wedding vendors; photographer, florist,  etc. It’s out last trip up North before the wedding and we have some very early starts and a lot of work, but the most exciting kind! 

What are your plans for the weekend?
