So I'm back!! Bad as it sounds, I did kind of enjoy being out of the blogging bubble this weekend, particularly given some of the unnecessary bitchiness that I see on Twitter more often than I would like (just an opinion, please don't lambaste me...). That said, I did miss writing here and reading lots of your blogs, so I'm glad to be back.
I had a cracking weekend- I'll be posting about it later in the week, so stay tuned. But at this moment in time, happiness is....
|Yes, Starbucks got her name wrong.|
...time with good friends. This weekend was honestly one of the best I've had in a long time, and a big part of that was definitely the company. It was SO good to catch up with C and just spend some proper quality time with her. We need to cling on to these people, the ones that make us feel like we can be ourselves and who make us better people.
...those nights where you drink too much and dance too much and remember that you're 23 and life is pretty awesome.
|Who doesn't like waking up to this!?|
... being woken by the sun. How good has the weather been recently?! When it's sunny, I like to leave my curtains slightly open when I go to bed, so I'm woken by the sun rising at 5:45. This may sound slightly masochistic, but if I wake up at 5:45, I get to go back to sleep and when I wake up at 6:15 for work, I feel like I've had a lie in. Win for Alice!
...four day weeks. I think I prefer the four day week part of a bank holiday more than the extra day off. Does that make sense? Anyway, May is a brilliant month for this- cheers whoever decided that we need two bank holidays in May!
....train travel. If you follow me on twitter, you'll have seen me whinging about managing to get on TWO stopping services, the guy who sat right next to me despite the six empty seats in the vicinity, and the person with 8 children in my carriage, but once we got going, I remembered why I love getting the train. Yes, it may be crowded and inevitably late, but where else do you get four hours to stare out at the gorgeous English countryside, listen to music, and read A Clash of Kings? Nowhere.
What's making you happy this week?
