100 happy days – week 6

I’m nearly half way through the 100 Happy Days challenge! Thank you to the people who’ve told me they’re enjoying these updates, that makes me happy too 🙂

Day 39 – I always struggle a bit to find my happy thing on Mondays because, well, it’s Monday. And this week was no exception; it was a long, busy day and I was just glad to get home and collapse on the sofa. And then to indulge in some leftover Christmas chocolates (yes, I still have chocolates from Christmas! How good am I?).Chocolate

Day 40 – great excitement in my office on Tuesday because we had a visitor. This is my boss’s dog, and the last time we saw her she was a puppy. She’s grown a lot since then, but still knows how to cause chaos. Mostly it’s just by turning up, because we all get very distracted. Thinking about it, that’s probably why he doesn’t bring her very often…Molly the dog

Day 41 – on my way home from work on Wednesday evening, I was walking up the road from Embankment to Charing Cross when I saw a couple stop to talk to a homeless man. As I passed them, they produced a thermos and made him a coffee. I thought that was pretty cool, especially because they didn’t just give him any old coffee; they’d also brought milk and sugar so they could make it exactly how he wanted it.

Day 42 – this is the door of my flat. It’s a long story, which I won’t bore you with, but the short version is that this door, and indeed the rest of the flat, is all mine 🙂 Which it kind of has been for a while, but not really. See, I warned you.


Day 43 – Friday was a lovely, relaxing day; I had the day off work so was able to get up late and spend some time catching up on things and generally chilling out. I also had to pop out to the post office, which took me dangerously close to the fish and chip shop. I managed to resist, feeling very proud of myself, only to cave minutes later and buy myself a tub of Häagen Dazs strawberry cheesecake ice cream. But it was half price, so I guess it’s not so bad, right?

Day 44 – on Saturday I went for a walk in the sunshine, and started to see the first signs of spring, which, after a miserable winter, was encouraging to say the least. Hopefully I haven’t just spoken too soon. Please don’t hate me if it starts raining again.Spring

Day 45 – I spent today with my family at London Zoo. It wasn’t ideal weather – in fact it was pretty windy and cold for most of the day, but the rain held off and we had fun. My sister Helen got to meet her adopted penguin, Ricky the Rockhopper, and we encountered these otters, who had clearly been observing their neighbours, the meerkats, a little too closely.
