I’ve been reading the gorgeous Sally Tangle’s
blog for quite some time now and every Wednesday she fills the blogosphere with loveliness with her #WonderfulWednesday
posts. I always think it’s such a lovely idea, to take a few moments to think of the good things that have happened in the week and appreciate the smaller things in life
. It’s so easy to get caught up in a world of stress and negativity, I know I’m guilty of that. So I’m hoping these posts will be the shake up I need to remember how wonderful things really are.
So, here’s my list of wonderful things this week…
Cooking a recipe from Pinterest
and it turned out pretty damn delicious
! This might seem simple to some, but cooking is not my forté. I get by, but I can barely cook an Old El Paso fajita kit without setting the smoke detector off, so I was feeling a little impressed with myself after this one! I made us Aubergine Melts with Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil, yum
! Pinterest fail it was not!
♔ My little puppy dog Robbie’s face when I get home from work, as I turn the key in the lock I can see his silhouette bouncing so high behind the glass he’s almost eye level. Every day when I come through the door, he scurries off to find a present for me, whether thats a bone, a toy or a random piece of clothing laying around – I always come home to big bounces, doggy smiles and a sweet little present.
♔ The big moment we’ve been waiting for has arrived! We are finally exchanging on our gorgeous house by the sea, after nearly 4 long months of waiting. The next couple of weeks will be filled with packing, sorting and getting ready for our new home. I can’t wait to wake up every morning and see the sea from the window of my first house, it’s a dream come true.
Feeling Rested / My Pinterest Creation / Daisy Crochet progress
This weekend we had the most beautiful
, restful weekend. Our weekends normally fly by in a flurry of social activities, cleaning and getting ready for the week. But this weekend we took some time out to sleep in
, take long walks with the dog and snuggle on the sofa to watch the new Studio Ghibli film ‘The Wind Rises
‘. I also got quite a bit done on my crochet daisy blanket. It was just what I needed to recharge my batteries and feel myself again.
On the topic of Japan, I’ve been tucking into lime-green coloured Matcha Kitkats
(bought at Hyper Japan
a couple of months ago) and dreaming one day visiting the amazing country of Japan. I can’t wait to one day take a stroll through the cherry blossom and have tea with the geisha’s, or maybe I will get to feed the bunnies of rabbit island! However, I think with the new house on the horizon, for the time being it’ll have to be a Pinterest dream
How has your week been?
