This is most definitely not a blog for politics, and I’ll leave those debates for those much more eloquent and better-informed than I. Nevertheless, I’m not going to lie, with the events of the past week unfolding in here in the UK, it’s been hard not to feel a bit of sadness, disappointment and anxiousness for the future. It’s easy to get swallowed up in news reports and worry of what might/could/will happen and let the good things pass you by.
If there was ever a week for me to sit down and focus on the small little happy things, it’s this one.
So what were my Small Pleasures this week?
- My ceiling leak wasn’t so bad.
When we came home from a lovely holiday to find a puddle of water on the bathroom floor having been steadily leaking from the ceiling, I thought, this is a bloody joke right? Can’t I live anywhere without water falling from on high? Luckily, after some investigation and tightening of pipes in the loft, all is right again. It seems a strange thing to be happy about, but I’m aware it could have been much worse (and far more expensive to fix!)
- Date night.
On Saturday night The Boy and I went to see a theatre production of Guys and Dolls. It was a lovely night, we had Mexican food (my favourite, always a winner) and let our inner children shine in our local arcade before the show. Thoroughly good times.
A lovely friend of ours just gifted us a Tassimo machine that I adore. I am thoroughly enjoying having a mug of good coffee in a morning!
- Reading Challenge Progress
This week I started reading book 4/10 of my self-imposed Summer Reading Challenge. I’ve already finished three! (reviews upcoming!) I’m happy with this, and this next one looks fab.
This is by far my favourite. The Boy and I are adopting kittens! This past week we got confirmation of being able to go pick them up on Saturday so we have been buying half of Pets at Home in preparation and I am beyond excited. We’ll be having two adorable bundles of fur joining our little family and I can’t wait.
Until next time.
