52 Weeks of Happy


For a change,I'm struggling with too many things to post and not enough days to post them. I have a quandary- do I put a couple of things in one post, or post them separate? Do I wait for a few days, then post? Who knows? If a post is too long, do people read it? Or if there are two posts, do people see both of them?
Some many questions- So little space or time?
What do you think?
So I've ended up posting two weeks of happies- hope you didn't mind the wait!
 
Anyway, Wk 48 and 49, of 52 Weeks of Happy, as usual joining in with Jen to show 4 little things that have made me happy this week and last

Wk48
November 25th- December 1st
A card from my Dad, :) He vaguely remembers that he sent me a card and was pleased when I said I had received it.
 
 
Baking Saffron Buns- I like making things- so working with Mia to help make her Swedish speciality was interesting as well as being enjoyable.

Our local bookstore had a sale on- Cheap books will always make me happy!
 

 

 
The week of the lost things- Remember my camera that I thought I'd lost way back in October- my little compact -go anywhere and everywhere- part of my right hand- lost without it camera!- well it turned up- Yay!!!
I honestly thought it had fallen out of my flight hand luggage when flying home the last time- I had visions of it lying at the back of an overhead locker- But wonders will never cease- It turned up underneath the seat of my friend Rob's car- It must have fallen out as he taxied me to the airport! I also found some money in my jean's pockets and "rediscovered" where I had put some gifts for safe keeping (after obviously forgetting where I'd put them!)-All in all a lucky week!
 

Kicking off Christmas with cocktails
 
Wk 49

December 2nd- 8th

Another definite happy- Looking after B for a few hours whilst her mum and dad went Christmas shopping. This time we painted, read and jumped up and down on my bed- shattered but happy- and that was just me!

What an amazing view! this was the sight on Saturday afternoon, from my friend D's balcony- Seeing the city spread out like this made me smile:)

It was my friends Mia's turn to host book club this month- We discussed, 'The Hundred Year Old Man That Climbed Out of a Window'. As the author is Swedish, and so is Mia -it was very apt that she linked our gathering to Advent as Advent is especially celebrated. We had very traditional Advent foods such as Saffron buns, ginger biscuits and Glug- a mulled wine type affair, with added vodka!- It was a lovely evening.

Another social gathering-this time our annual girly xmas do! Lots of good food, some wine, some silly games, gift exchanges- all with brilliant company- what a great way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon!

And one extra one- we had a fantastic Xmas parade this week- singing carols and a costume parade- definitely a good way to kick off Christmas :)



Ok so that was the last couple of weeks- This week so far has been a week of shopping, baking, making, eating, partying, singing and packing..
Roll on the weekend!

  5. I think I prefer a longer post than lots of different ones as I can't keep up. I've also found that if I post on consecutive days, the first does get less views and comments - not that I manage to do that very often! I admire how you're overflowing with ideas - wish I had that problem. Enjoyed your happies. When I lived in France I loved getting mail from home. Would love to try those swedish buns too and a big big glass of the glog! x
