So I'm here! I'm back in Cardiff, settled in nicely in my darling friends' spare room, and have spent the weekend catching up with as many people as possible. I also managed to scout out my new route to work, and proving it stays dry and I don't snap my ankle on an uneven curb (it nearly happened at least three times on Sunday), everything should be going to plan as you're reading this. Happy days!
In the end, I was more nervous about the move than I thought I would be. I cried leaving home, got myself all worked up on Saturday morning (and was nearly talked in to waiting an extra day), and was looked after by my big sister for a good few hours on my way through. As it was though, I've felt so welcomed and really settled very quickly, and as I'm writing this on Sunday evening, I'm feeling like this was definitely a sensible move. Hopefully, by Monday evening I'll still be feeling the same way...!
So yeah. Currently thinking that this move was a great way to start the new year, and I'm hoping being a bit brave will really pay off. And this week, happiness is...
... new, fresh starts. Aren't you shocked I've started with this one? I know, so predictable, but there really is something so great about a new start, where no one knows you, or has preconceptions about you, and you get to start all over again and (hopefully) prove your awesomeness.
... new slippers. I was given a pair of these Joules slippers for Christmas and have saved them for the move. They are so cosy, my feet feel like they're being given a little cuddle every time I slip them on.
|I'm aware this is a double bed. From here|
... double duvets on single beds. In my friends' little spare room, there is only space for a little single bed. Knowing this full well, I still decided that it would be a stonking idea to bring a double duvet- and my goodness, it's one of the best ideas I've had in ages. It is SO cosy, and means if I ever have to share this bed, there won't be such a risk of me stealing all the covers.
... catching up with people unexpectedly. I've managed to see two J's this weekend, and when I wasn't expecting to see either just yet, it's made me exceptionally happy that I've managed to squish them in, even if one was rather hungover and the other spent far too much time teasing me.
... the Despicable Me films. How have I got this far without seeing either of the films in this franchise? On Saturday night, we settled down with wine and brownies and watched both the first and second films on the trot, and they have quickly made their way onto my life of favourite animated films. And Happy sounds even better when you've seen it in the film!
What's making you happy this week?
