The Happiness Project Weeks Five, Six and Seven

Sooo... I'm useless at blogging...

I've managed to miss two weeks of happiness (one week because I'm just plain rubbish, one because I was stranded abroad on my holidays with no internet- first world problem much). Not just that, but I also never posted the valentines day tutorials I promised! I *did* write them, but I wasn't at all happy with it, aaand my camera was packed for the trip, so the photos were really sucky phone photos, and I couldn't bring myself to post it. sorrrrrreeee.

So here goes; my round up of the top 5 moments of the last three weeks (wow, that's nearly a whole month! I am dreadful. I hang my head in shame)

1- My little jogs round the block have made me so happy lately, especially since the weather has been so beautiful recently! Not that the weather seems to matter all that much; I actually got completely bundled up in fleeces and scarfs and went out in all that wind a few weeks back, and I had an absolute blast!
'but what do you do you do, do you just go out there and gamble about like a bunny?
no, I just run 'till I'm hungry then I stop for a bear claw'
-Sheldon and Penny, The Big Bang Theory
Love this quote, it totally sums up my approach to exercise. 

2 - Valentines day; I was supposed to be babysitting, but unfortunately one of the kids got sick, so the family had to cancel their plans. On the upside, I got to hang out with my favorite man, which was cool. We had a totally laid back curry, and watched the final ever episode of firefly, which I've gotten totally addicted to. To me, it was the perfect way to spend the evening. 

3- Skiiiiiing. I know this is meant to be a list of moments, but I think I'd go well over my target of 5, if I counted each individual happy skiing moment; it was so nice to just spend some time unplugged from the internet, reading, enjoying the fresh air and just generally hanging out with the family. And the scenery was beaut. 

4- I was heading back to work after my holidays when I was cheerfully greeted by a save the children rep with the words 'hello smiley'. Whilst we didn't end up chatting (I was late for work. Standard), the whole incident still made me smile (more than I apparently already was..). Happy people make me happy.

5- My boy and I went on quite possibly the most middle aged date of our whole lives. After running some errands on Thursday morning, we popped into a local antique/junk shop for a nose around. As an ex- history student, I love old things, and this place was a treasure trove of cool stuff! There was so much I wanted to take home with me, but I restrained myself, and left with a sweet commemorative mug that I thought would look adorable with some flowers or pens or a candle in it.

So that's it; my last few weeks in a nut shell. I hope your past few weeks have been as delightful as mine. :)

Much Love
