It’s a while since I’ve written one of these Four Good Things posts, isn’t it? So, let’s round off the week on a positive note:
Now, I’m not going to lie, I’ve had a bit of a rubbish week. (Don’t worry, I’m not going to bore you with all the deets.) So, instead of wallowing, I thought I’d look on the bright side and share four good things with you that’ve put a smile on that face of mine.
Starting to get my blogging mojo back!
Now, I don’t want to get you all excited here, but I think (after a considerable spell of writer’s block) I’m finally getting some inspiration back.
Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been beavering away behind the scenes on lots of Christmas-related content, and I’m quite excited to share it with you!
Going through old photos.
I’ve been trawling through lots of photos I took over the summer that’ve been left unedited and unloved. So, they’re not too old, but it’s definitely time I went through them.
It’s really nice to have reminders of those memories, especially now it’s all cold and dark outside. (The photo above is one I took on my birthday in York in August – there is a blog post coming about that, but seeing as I’m only just editing the pics, it might be a while before you cast eyes on it!)
Getting through the reading list.
Am I the only person who buys books quite regularly, knowing full well they’ll never be able to read them all? If I stacked them all, the pile would probably tower over me, but that never seems to stop me from sneaking into Waterstones ‘for a look‘.
So, I’m currently reading an array of books simultaneously, including: The Course of Love by Alain de Botton (pictured), Sleep by Nick Littlehales, and How to be a Grown Up by Daisy Buchanan.
Let’s face it: these cold, dark evenings are the perfect excuse for cosying up with a good book, aren’t they?
It SNOWED!! (A little bit.)
This week I temporarily regressed into a six year old, as I got really excited about a few flakes of the white stuff. We didn’t exactly have much of a covering here in Derbyshire, but I still managed to get far more excited than is socially acceptable for someone who’s allegedly an adult.
(It’s perfectly normal for people in their mid-twenties to practically jump up and down shouting ‘it’s snowing!’ repeatedly, right?)
What’s put a smile on your face this week?
