Well I did only say I'd post the pics on here weekly-ish, right? I'm keeping up with the challenge of finding a happy moment to post each day so far. Mostly these are small things but I think that's part of the ethos behind the challenge; recognising the happiness to be found in everyday moments as well a 'big' events. More info on the 100 happy days site.
So without further ado, here're my moments so far...
Day 1: Can’t remember the last time
I used this when it wasn't absolutely necessary. My trousers are falling off me.
Day 2 - Happy Friday! Good night with good friends and fine ales.
Day 3: I fit back in my fave jeans - whoop!!!! This has made me a happy bunny indeed.
Day 4: Very early! Bar dancing with my new bar 'family'.
Day 5: This beautiful magnolia stellata is on my route to and from work. I love seeing it each spring. Cheered up my walk home in the cold and rain tonight.
Day 6: Lovely bag full of Ramsons for wild garlic pesto later. Nomalicious!!!
Day 7: Happy guinness at a friend's birthday.
Day 8, which also happens to be my lucky number. Getting home to my furry faced love after what feels like a veeerrrrryyyy loooooonnnnggg couple of days. (PS - like most cats he takes a shit pic though. )
Day 9: That patch of blue which prisoners call the sky... The sun coming out on a Friday afternoon at work when it seems like the rest of the week it's rained every afternoon / evening.
Day 10: Spending all day in bed because you can and not feeling even a tiny bit guilty about it.
Day 11 - Watching the rather spiffing Aunt Fanny's Handbag laying down some chillaxed Sunday arvo vibes. Oh, and the greatest old couple ever, dancing their hearts out to it - she was being chucked up in the air and everything!
Day 12 - Playing all the top old tunes you'd forgotten about on an unplanned jukebox marathon. They even had a couple of Ned's tracks!!!! Then I had to educate as to who Ned's were of course...
Day 13: I won free chocolate! Nuff said, right? Small pleasures.
Day 15 - Finding I can fit back in some trousers I haven't worn for 2 years, that are a size smaller than all my current clothes, and evidently I can fit into them without bothering to undo the zip. I believe 'Woot' is the appropriate word at this juncture.
Day 16 - Leaving the office on a Friday in the SUN to be greeted by this display of beauty by nature. *breathe*
Day 17: You lot. Yes YOU. Realising I have some truly wonderful friends both new and old who care and seem to know just the right things to say when I need it. I thank you, you wonderful people you.
So that's as far as I am, tune in next week(ish) for the next thrilling installment...
