Happiness Is.. (vol 40)

Despite the fact I very much have the standard "I don't want to go to work" days, I'm currently finding I don't really get Sunday-night-itis at the moment. I'm not sure why- maybe because of lovely #lbloggers chats, or Downton, or something. I like it though.

In other news, on Sunday morning I did the closest thing to oversleeping I've ever done. I completely messed up my timings, and sort of forgot I had to be in Exeter, an hour from my house, at 9:30- instead, I seemed to think I had to leave my house at 9:30. Cue Mama CupandSaucer coming in and waking me at 8am going "Alice, I thought you had to leave at 8:30?!" and me running around like a headless chicken. I made it though...!

But anyway. This week, happiness is...

... not getting any trick or treaters. Mostly because this meant I got all of the miniature Cadbury's things Mama CupandSaucer had bought for them. Yay!

... my team winning, in my first korfball match as part of the seconds team! And I was told by a team member at the end that you couldn't tell it was my first match, so double whoop for that!And you know, exercise releases endorphins and what not, so I suppose that's contributing to it. (I am quite certain that these sentences don't make sense. I just can't work out how to phrase it properly, so my apologies for that)

Found here
... this picture. Oh my, isn't it just the cutest thing EVER?! A soldier shaking hands with a cat? It made my evening.

... having to wear a coat. Yes, I know most of you will be bemoaning the winter onslaught but a) I love my coats (I have nine, I don't know why), and b) I love the chilliness and bundling up, wearing gloves, and getting into warm houses after being out in the cold. I didn't have a coat on on Sunday, and I realised that it was definitely the last time I'll be doing that this winter. It was cold, and I absolutely loved it.

... and last but by no means least- reaching 200 bloglovin followers! I am so excited about this, and I just wanted to say an absolutely enormous thank you to everyone who takes the time to follow, read, comment, tweet, and so on. You're all absolutely marvellous and I think the world of you all. As I pointed out in this week's #lbloggers chat- I never got on with diaries because there's no feedback. So you lot interacting is the main reason I keep going with this little corner of the internet!

Love to you all. What's making you happy this week?
