9 good things.

It is the 9th May today so here are 9 good things that are currently making me happy…just because.

My friends. This was us at the weekend on the first hen do of the year – a slumber party. I may have danced my socks off.

The prospect of a holiday. We’re not going to Australia until next February but the planning (for me) is as much fun as the actual going. I’m beside myself. I’ve begun looking for inspiring Australian blogs (yes, I know it’s a big place) for an insight. If you can recommend any I’d be very grateful (sneak you in my suitcase?).

Beth Jeans Houghton. Her voice makes me happy.

The Make My Dreams Come True Exhibition at Heart Gallery.

Food glorious food. Crikey. We had a spot of Afternoon tea at the weekend whilst celebrating a friends birthday. Sandwiches cut into triangles are the best. FACT.

Game of Thrones. The theme tune alone sends me into a frenzy. I love a bit of fantasy/gore.

Fruit. I have made it a mini-mission to eat more fruit. Fruit and I don’t get on very well. Vegetables I can eat until the cows come home. But fruit? Nah. I would happily go without. However I have been enjoying an apple a day for the past week. Steady as she goes.

Voting. I don’t like to preach about politics but I do think every person, who has the right to vote, should. I vote in respect, for those who fought for the right to back in the day. Hopefully one day I’ll vote because there is a party I beleive in!

Positive attitude. May has been a great month so far and I can’t help but feel happy about every aspect of my life. I’m really loving Hebden Bridge too – come on sunshine. But, the paranoid and anxious so and so that is me keeps on wondering when it will end. Must stay positive, must stay positive…

Happy Wednesday!

    Oh your May sounds wonderful (miles better than mine). Sadly there hasn’t been nearly enough dancing or afternoon tea in my life recently (must rectify this forthwith).This post has put a smile on my face though. Your excitement about Australia is palpable and I’m so happy that there’s lots to look forward to. I’m thinking I should invest in the box series of Game of Thrones for when I am marooned on the sofa feeding the baby.
    Keep smiling sweetpea!

    A ha! A fellow loves-vegetables-doesn’t-love-fruit person! Well done on the apples. I have had 3 so far this year which is a big deal because i haven’t eaten them since I was a kid. I am now 34.
