Hey look, Pharrell Williams released a soundtrack for these posts (also known as Happy)! Isn't that kind of him?
I'm so excited by the fact that it's Christmas Eve Eve- how quickly has this crept up on us?! I'm less excited about the fact I have to run into town first thing this morning to finish my Christmas shopping though- I have been more disorganised this year than ever before, which I can only put down to being too busy over the past few weeks/ months. But hey- it has been bloody brilliant, and I wouldn't have changed it for anything (though whether I still think that when I get home from shopping will be an entirely different matter).
But anyway. All sorts of crazy ridiculousness leads to all sorts of things to be happy about- this week, I'm positively fizzing, and happiness is...
|The blue sky didn't last long at all|
... a brilliant send off from work, including an absolutely hilarious evening at the work Christmas party. Far, far too much wine was consumed, but I think I managed not to make a complete idiot of myself, so fingers crossed I've left a good lasting impression. I was sent on my merry way with a card full of seriously sweet messages, and some gorgeous gifts. They were all far too kind!
... being picked first at a sport (for what I think is the first time ever). At korfball on Tuesday (which also happened to be my last training session with the Exeter guys), two of the guys were allowed to pick teams- and one chose me first. I still can't quite figure out why he picked me first, but whatever the reason, it made my evening. Because how many people can say they've been picked first for a team by a guy wearing a Spiderman onesie? Very few, that's who.
... doing brilliantly at the pub quiz with my brothers and childhood friends. After a fairly long hiatus, and a one-week-only festive name change (we became The Hoe Hoe Hoes - the Es are fully intentional, and no, we weren't talking about gardening), we came second, losing by only a point and a half, and gaining a cash prize and a bottle of wine for our efforts. We'll take that!
... taking Little L ice skating. I know I try very very hard to not put pictures of people I actually know on here, but this picture was too sweet for me not to share. She had never ice skated before and did brilliantly, which made me exceptionally happy- no sobbing little sister for me to deal with!
What's made you happy this week?
