52 Weeks of Happy- Wk 43

Another week has flown by- So here I am, joining in with Jen at Little birdie to share some of my week's happy moments and things that made me smile
 
 
Wk 43
21st October - 27th October
 
A visit To Kota Belud Annual Horse Festival- It was a great day and  I shall be posting a few more pics later in the week. Saying that I took nearly 400! so I shall have to have time to pare them down:)
 
 
My friend, Christine, and I hosted a 'soups and sweets night'- No main courses, just a selection of soups and deserts for 14 people. It was a very pleasant evening and despite feeling like I had been cooking all week- it was fun. As you kow I love to cook and bake, so it was a double happy! We set up the room cafĂ© style and then got on with serving:)
 
Just returning back from the UK definitely has it's perks- aside from every one else's requests to bring back various food items- Chocolate Hobnobs being the firm favourite- I also managed to bring back some decent cheese- so fresh bread and Crumbly Lancashire cheese has never tasted so good!
 
A bit of a strange photo I know! This is Fluffy the Orang-utan. It belongs to my friend's little girl. We were out for dinner and Fluffy came with us all. Now, obviously as cute as he or she is, Fluffy is not my Happy- But what has made me smile this week has been the  amount of time I have spent with my friends back here in Borneo. Whether it has been dinner out, a quick coffee or a hug to get me through the day- I have had it all this week! The support and friendship I have felt this week has been great. My Jet lag was terrible, I'm worried about my mum and dad,  and for a lot of the week I have been tired and miserable, but with friends as good as these- I know they made the week so much easier. Such a blessing :)
 
Hope you have had a great week too!

    1. What the customs men don't know can't harm them!!! :) You should see what everyone else brings back in! Saying that our customs are a lot less strict than the US or Australia:)

    1. Soup and sweets are the best bit- you don't have to worry about the tricky main courses! We had three soup courses and a choice of 7 sweets!

  5. I like the sound of your "soups and sweets" party, I bet that was fun. It must be hard being away from your family when you're worried about them - it's good that you have such a solid group of friends to rely on. x
