Happiness is...#9

It's been a long time since I last shared a 'Happiness is...' post. It's not that I've been unhappy - I just haven't had a moment to step back and take stock of the little things which have been making me smile. Life has been busy; but now I'm going to stop and notice the delights that have been making life a bit better over the last few weeks.



Making simple fruit smoothies and discovering that almond milk is actually really delicious. I need to try out a few more recipes!

Wearing my new brown and gold New Look sandals in the early sunshine - they're so cute (but unfortunately after a little walking, they wipe the smile off my face - they're so painful! Hello blisters...)

Drinking fruit cider in the sun on my local common. A sure-fire signal that warmer weather is finally (hopefully!) on its way.

Trying out new (simple) recipes. I knocked up Sorted's Butterbean & Broccoli soup and it tasted delicious! An easy and cheap meal (even though it may not look overly appetising!)

Beautiful home-grown flowers brightening up my room. After a quick visit, my parents brought them down for me and they added a touch of home to my place. I feel the need for more flowers in my life; it's amazing how blooming marvellous they make me feel (sorry...)

I bade a final farewell to Cambridge this weekend. That didn't make me happy - I will really miss the beautiful city - but I have so many lovely memories of my visits and it will be a special place for me. If you haven't been, I urge you to. You can read my posts on the city here:


One of my colleagues came back from America and brought in a selection of goodies from the US for us to try! I couldn't resist trying out a Twinkie. It was tasty but a little too sweet for me. But it definitely perked up my day!


What's been making you happy recently?
