Seven Happy Things #1

Good morning and happy Sunday to you all, I hope you have all had a fantastic week and that today will be just as good!

I absolutely love reading people's Weekend Round Up posts, however I feel that I don't post enough during the week to my blog, or to my Instagram to be able to post my own. I really like the idea of a post to end the week though, so with that being said I came up with this, "Seven Happy Things". The idea is to take one thing from each day of the week that has made me happy, whether it be something big or small and at the end of the week and write them down as I reminder that there is something good in every day. Life can be testing at times, for everyone. I think at the end of the day (or week) we tend to only focus on the bad things and forget about anything good that has happened. I would like to change that way of thinking.  The seven things will be accompanied by a quote (found on Pinterest) that sums up the week for me.

  • My Monday evening was spent playing Scrabble and watching quiz shows. I know this sounds awfully boring but I love it.
  • Tuesday got off to a wonderful start for me as the boy surprised me with tea and toast in bed. I like my toast barely toasted, with butter and strawberry jam on top, in case you were wondering.
  • My first every post as a guest blogger was posted on Wednesday. I shared my favourite brownie recipe with What Lizzie Thinks readers.
  • I am lucky enough to be going to Paris in June so I've been anxiously waiting to receive my new passport. Thankfully, Thursday was the day when my anxiety about this issue was put to rest as it finally arrived!
  • I do most of my baking towards the end of the week so on Friday I made Viennese Swirls. They were fabulous (if I do say so myself) and I cannot wait to share the recipe with you guys!
  • On Saturday I was back in the kitchen again making some Mint Creme Chocolate Cookies, I shall also have a post up about these as they were the best cookies I have ever made. Baking makes me happy, can you tell?
  • Today is Sunday and I am extremely happy today about this post. I have really enjoyed writing it, it has made me see that this week hasn't been as bad as it may have seemed..

 I really hope you guys enjoy reading this post and feel free to leave a comment below telling me something that has made you happy!
