52 Weeks of Happy x 2

Well, it got to the weekend and realised that I hadn't even posted last week's 52 weeks of Happy. I don't know how that happened! Anyway, I'm making up for it now and posting both weeks. Time is just flying by this month- already, we are into our 6th week of school - It's madness.
I've had a really busy few weeks and then this week I've also ended zipping off to the physio each day after school- for some work on my sore rear end. I don't know if I mentioned about managing to fall straight on my coccyx last weekend- but anyway I did! ( Morale of the story is don't try to rush, in a thunderstorm, wearing flip flops on your feet!) As it is, I'm still feeling a little tender and sitting down is quite interesting!!

Back to '52 weeks of Happies' then, as usual linking in with Jen at Little birdie to  to show a few moments from the last couple of weeks that made me smile.

Back to my regular coffee stops- after school, at the weekend, whether it's on my own or with friends. First one I've had this school year- just a nice way to chill:)

Apart from the car driving past- (which I couldn't avoid unfortunately!) I have loved the sunrise that I have been greeted with on my way to work each morning. This is about 6.30am and it's just a shame I live in town, as the view of the sunrise on the mountains is glorious. I have to do with seeing it through breaks in houses and trees- but it still makes me smile.

Spicy Pumpkin Soup! Now for some, this would be better if it was homemade- but for me, that's what's special about this one- It is straight out a can! Shock horror- But it is Baxter's Spicy Pumpkin soup- my all time favourite and one I actually managed to find in the import section of the supermarket. I've never seen it there before and will probably never see it there again-so I just had to buy it- despite it costing the earth in comparison to UK prices. It was worth every penny!

Another perfect stroll at sunset.

And an extra one this week- It was the Boss's Birthday- so I made him a cake, (which incidentally he really liked) but this made me smile as I'm never happier than when I have my hands covered in flour, butter and sugar and making cake!

So to this week- another busy one- aren't they all?
Another home comfort's food- last week was soup - this was beans on toast- Sometimes you just can't beat it-This was even more special as I'd managed to find Heinz Baked Beans with Sausage in the 'Naughty' section of the supermarket. It's where all the good stuff is! All the non Halal foods are there- like bacon, sausage and ham and all the alcohol- Can you see why we call it the naughty corner!
Aren't these just adorable- a whole branchfull of owl goodies for my classroom! My (Unfortunately, only part time) very clever, sweet and resourceful teaching assistant managed to find all these cute owl labels, signs etc. Even though we have some stuff already, we couldn't resist this new stuff and are now going to make a start changing everything around- it will look brill! 
We had a fabulous Un- Birthday Party aboard this weekend. Celebrating everyone's birthdays in style, regardless of what date they fall on. We even had Birthday cake and presents- Cool!
Now for some more cute stuff! What is it with owls? They are every where- not that I'm complaining as I have a bit of a thing about them at the moment. So these made me smile. But the purpose of this happy isn't so much what they are, but it's want I'm going to do with them that I'm excited about.. You see, I'm hosting an event later this week and have thoroughly enjoyed planning it all. You'll just have to wait a few days to find out how it all went.
Hope you are all having a good week.
Until next time,

  1. I can't wait to see what you do with the owls. The idea of a grocery store "naughty" section makes me laugh, although the real reason behind it isn't actually funny, still it's a funny way to say it! My package came the other day, thank you soooo much! I love it. I will be blogging about it soon. :)

    1. You are very welcome1- owl project all finished! More to come soon:)

  2. What a great fortnight of happies, some really lovely things in there.

  3. I like the sound of the naughty corner at the shops, that where you would find me, I hope your bottom gets better soon, walk don't run.

    1. I'm trying- although I do have a tendency to lean against things and forget!

  4. Mmmm baked beans on toast with sausages, always makes me happy. Some lovely happies there Amanda.
