I'm only in work for two days this week- Wednesday and Thursday, due to a little trip to the Big Smoke today and tomorrow, and Good Friday on, well, Friday. I am so excited for a little bit of time off- theoretically to recharge the batteries, but in practice, just to do all the things. Mama CupandSaucer text me last night saying "What a busy time you are having! Work just gets in the way, doesn't it?"- and realistically, she couldn't have been more right.
Last week was a complete emotional rollercoaster, with some seriously great highs, and some really sad news too. But I suppose that's all part of life, isn't it? We have to take the good with the bad and just hope that we make it through as unscathed as possible.
On the whole though, things are pretty good. I didn't struggle to think of things to write today, that's for sure- so without further ado, this week, happiness is...
... paddling in the sea. I went for my first paddle in the sea of the year yesterday, and I couldn't have been happier about it- as you can probably tell from my delirious grin- even if my feet did feel like they were going to fall off.
... playing pool. I'm dreadful- seriously, I managed to not pot a ball that was teetering at the edge of a pockets- but I absolutely love playing pool. There's just something about it, isn't there?!
... Frozen. I finally saw it for the first time last Wednesday, and I can't believe it took me that long. I've already watched it a second time to make up for my tardiness. I may have a fair few issues with it (which I won't go into unless you ask me), but I've been singing Let It Go ever since, and on Sunday morning when J told me to go back to sleep, I instantly responded with "The sky's awake, so I'm awake". Instant classic. (His reaction was much like Elsa's, too)
... cake and champagne. Because let's be honest, is there actually a better combination than that- particularly when you're surrounded by 11 of your absolute very favourite people?! No, no there is not.
... odd but brilliant flavours of ice-cream. I live very close to Joe's Ice Cream, where I tried Welsh Cake ice cream the other week. And yesterday, in Antonio's in Exmouth, I demolished scoops of Hot Cross Bun and Jam Doughnut flavour ice creams. Seriously, who needs boring old strawberry when you've got that!?
What's making you happy this week?
