7 Things That Have Made Me Happy This Week

Hello lovely,

Gosh, two posts in one day is definitely  a new record for me ^_^ But I felt it’s only fair to keep my weekly gratitude post going, so without a big intro, this week they are:

Date night collage (C) Rambling with Rose

  1. Having a date night with hubby and spending the evening laughing as we ate cheese and chicken quesadilla’s (one of my favourite meals – and it’s so easy to make at home too), followed by a few bites of his banana waffles with caramel and ice-cream.
  2. Getting to see my wonderful work peeps on Wednesday for the first time in almost a month of being off sick, and having them tell me not to worry about the giant workload I’ve accumulated. Plus, reading this Creative Professionals post on Lifehacker and having a lot of the points hit home (specifically the  “Over-identifying with my job” section).
  3. Having one of my favourite UK lifestyle bloggers tweet back at me this week! I simply adore everything that Alix from I Covet Thee does – plus as a fellow Breton top lover, I’m quite envious of her numerous varieties. ^_^

Fairview organic yoghurt and Starbucks Frappucchino (C) Rambling with Rose

  1. Discovering that a little quick-shop down the road from me stocks Starbucks Frappuccino’s! I absolutely loved Starbucks coffee when I was in the USA (especially their double shot espresso cans)! Also, eating Fairview Full Fat Yoghurt – it has no additives, and is delicious on it’s own, or with a teaspoon of jam blended in.
  2. Getting a Maestro 3-in-1 Food Processor and making delicious homemade smoothies – yoghurt plus fruits and a touch of fruit juice are what we’ve made this week. Smoothies are a great way to get your vitamins in, though I will start experimenting with green smoothies once my spinach patch takes off (and I get some watercress & wheatgrass – though I’ll definitely have to play with amounts, since I hate the taste of wheatgrass).
  3. Playing with aromatherapy oil blends for our humidifier – the Frankincense and Sandalwood mix I’ve made smells amazing!
  4. Being reminded about how incredible Epsom salt baths are (just remember to shower off after one).


What’s made you happy this week? ^_^
