52 Weeks of Happy 47/52

I only wrote down two happy things this week.

1. Party. This was the last of the five parties I was invited to. This one was a Graduation party and I went with my friend and sister and we had a good old dance!

2. Christmas jumper. I've never been a fan of Christmas jumpers but I saw this one online at Asda and really liked it! It's a thin jumper and not too flashy. (Sorry about the rubbish photo!)

52 Weeks of Happy 46/52

1. Home made flapjacks. This is the first time I've made flapjacks, I was surprised how many oats were needed. I used this recipe and they were really tasty. I thought I had taken a photo but I couldn't find it!

2. Printed photos. I had a code to get some photos printed cheaply. I don't really get photos printed now that we are in the age of the digital camera! I need to get some albums now to put the photos in.

3. Finding my Railcard. A bit of an odd one but I knew I was going into London and my Railcard saves me £7.50 on a Travelcard. I remembered that I'd put between some books to flatten it (it was bent on the corner), but couldn't remember where I'd put it after, in the end it was still between the books! I have a Network Railcard, which covers the South East.

4. Volunteers party. The toddler group I volunteer at is based in a church and they have a party each year for all of the volunteers across the church, there were about 120 people there. It was the first time I'd been to one, so didn't really know what to expect but it was really good. They had food and drink and had decorated the church, then we watched a magician. I was glad I didn't get called up onto the stage!

52 Weeks of Happy 45/52

Now I'm writing up all the posts I'm behind on, I've realised that I have missed two weeks! I have been quite good at writing my happy things down over the last eight or so weeks (apart from these two!).

I only have two things and no photos for this week. 

1. Firework party. We had some fireworks at home but I don't really like being too close to the fireworks. We had them at the top of the back garden but I stood at the end of the front garden. I don't mind going to organised shows where you can see the fireworks from a distance.

2. Birthday meal. We try to go for a meal when it's someone's Birthday, this week was my sisters Birthday and we went to the local Brewers Fayre.

52 Weeks of Happy 44/52

I only have three happy things from this week.

1. Legoland fireworks. We went to Legoland on Halloween, for the fireworks. They were really good and lasted about 12 minutes. The kids enjoyed the day, it was quite busy but the weather was good and we were in short sleeves for most of the day.

2. Spending time with my niece. During half term, while the kids were over, I spent quite a bit of time with my niece doing a puzzle. I don't get to spend much time with her now that she's at school so it was really nice.

3. Crocheted Poppy. I decided to try and crochet a poppy this year as the paper ones always get ruined. I found a pattern and made one but I didn't really like it, it didn't look like the paper ones. Then I found a pattern for one that looks more like a paper one, I made three poppies but they were all slightly different! (Sorry about the terrible photo but I couldn't find the original photo I took!)
