Hello chaps and chapesses!
It’s been a busy and jolly week, as it’s been our first week in our new house! I’m so excited to say that. We moved on Saturday, and had got most of the essential stuff unpacked by Sunday afternoon. I had a little moment on Sunday night where Graeme and I were sat on the sofa drinking champagne and watching TV with the log fire burning, and I thought ‘Yes. This is it.’
Here are some of the smaller things that have made me happy this week:
Broadchurch: I loved the first series, and the new series is more than living up to expectations. I’m just impatient – we binge-watched the last series, and I don’t want to have to wait a whole week for the next episode.
Mooching: Graeme and I were both off on Tuesday, and we had a lovely day getting haircuts, having tea and cake, taking Toby for a walk over the fields, and generally pottering about. It was a lovely, mellow day.
Shopping: On our day off, I did a wee bit of shopping and got myself not one but two new lipsticks, and a few tops in the sale in Dorothy Perkins. It’s been ages since I had a bit of retail therapy, so it felt like a nice treat.
Snow: We had a little dusting of snow on Tuesday night, and it made everything look so pretty and sparkly and cute.
Our dishwasher: We’ve bought a dishwasher for our new house, and it’s so nice not to have to wash big piles of dirty dishes by hand any more. Lazy but true.
Thoughtful gifts: When I came into work on Friday, one of my colleagues presented me with a bag containing two cute tumblers, a bottle of gin, some tonic water and some nuts. Basically a Friday night in a bag!
Quality time: I’ve managed to have some quality time with Graeme this week. We’ve spent a lot of time cwtched up on the sofa in front of the fire watching TV – it’s so simple but just lovely.
Getting back to the gym: I went to my first Bodycombat class in weeks on Tuesday, and although it was really tough, and tiring, and made me ache for days, it does feel good to be working towards a gym routine.
What little (or big!) things have made you smile this week?
