Friday Favourites #113

It’s a bank holiday Friday! Who else is utterly excited by that fact? It’s so nice to have a four day weekend, we should totally be making them a more frequent thing. Who’s with me? But before we dive into the delights that a long weekend brings I’m sharing my happy things from the past seven days.


<> I’ve had this past week off work and it has been excellent. I had days to use up, but didn’t want to actually go away anywhere, so instead I’ve had some time at home and it’s been great.

<> On Tuesday I visited my parents and my Dad and I took the Lunabean out for a walk in the woods opposite their house. We had an excellent 50 minute explore through the woodlands. The only downside was when I stepped in a stream and discovered that my wellies weren’t waterproof. So that was fun! But the time still makes my happy things list.

<> Over the weekend I read Everywoman by Jess Phillips in just 24 hours. It’s an excellent read, or at least that’s my opinion.



<> On Wednesday I had a bit of a lazy day, I basically didn’t leave the house and it was joyous. I did however watch six episodes of Black Lightning on Netflix. I have zero regrets.

<> I took a quick trip to RHS Wisley Gardens this week. My Mum and I wandered around the grounds and marveled at the winter walk and the design of the rockery.

<> Before the above trip to Wisley Gardens my Mum and I made last minute coffee plans with some local friends. We spent a good hour in a local coffee shop talking about everything from Brexit to March for Our Lives and the best type of croissants. All with numerous puppy cuddles of course!



<> With less than two weeks to go before I turn thirty-three (eep!) I thought I should think about writing a birthday list, just in case anyone wanted to buy me a present. Of course writing the list got me all excited. Now I just need to think of a present for Fi!

<> I’ve done a little Easter baking this week – I made some creme egg brownies, because it’s Easter and I love brownies. I mean do I need another reason?

What has been on your list of happy things this week? I hope you’re looking forward to the bank holiday.
