So after yesterday's ranty post, we're back on slightly more positive territory.
(Nonetheless, it's great to know that lots of you agreed that the campaign is really rather stupid)
This week is going to be a really busy one- we have visitors from The North (well, Manchester. Which is North in my book, and I was born there so I'm allowed to say that) coming on Thursday and staying for the weekend, so we're in "let's get ready for visitors" mode here at CupAndSaucer HQ.
However, fingers crossed that I'll still have some time for blogging- though to be honest, while I've been able to still post regularly, recently I've been struggling to keep up with reading all of your lovely blogs. So if you could all take a little blogging break at the same time, to give me a chance to catch up, that'd be wonderful.
But anyway- let's get down to what we're all here for. At the moment, happiness is...
.... moments like this. Tea, kitchen, stripes, laptop. Good.
... making cakes for friends. When I wasn't cleaning on Sunday, I was baking for some lovely people- one cake for D, a member of our pub quiz team (and a policeman, oo-er), and another for my favourite work colleague. Making cake for yourself is great, but there's something extra nice about baking for a friend. Even if it does mean stopping yourself from eating the cake until you've given it to them.
... weekends without hangovers. I tend not to drink particularly huge amounts anyway, but when I drink more than two glasses of wine, I feel awful the next day. Which is mostly why I don't drink in the first place, but I do appreciate having a full weekend of not feeling like I'm about to die.
... food shops which look like this. In addition to the super-healthiness of all the fruit and veg, I was particularly pleased about the 80p blueberries and 4 avocados for 70p. (Don't worry, I still have an enormous stash of chocolate at home!!)
... a very tidy room. My room kind of doubles up at the guest room (the downside of having the biggest room in the house), so in preparation for The Northerners I've had to clean it to within an inch of it's life. No doubt by Wednesday evening I'll need to tidy it again, but at the moment I'm loving the smell of polish and the fact my clothes are all in the wardrobe, not on the floor/ bed/ desk/ chair etc etc.
So that's my list for the week! What's making you happy at the moment?
