5 Happy Things

This post was supposed to be up on Monday but time ran away with me! Some little things I’ve been appreciated lately…

1/ Snail mail from home will always put a smile on my face. Plus my Mum chooses the nicest cards.

2/ We went to Abbotsford Slow Food Farmer’s Market at the weekend and I bought all of the figs. They’re such a special Summer treat that when I saw how cheap they were I couldn’t help it. Figs remind me of sweltering hot days in the South of France. When I realised they had a shelf life of about one day, I made this fig and almond cake which turned out more like a tart but is delicious!

3/ After running some errands on Sunday Alex and I spontaneously played crazy/mini golf in the sun. It was so much fun! (Also my leg doesn’t actually look that muscly IRL… unless my Kayla workouts are actually working).

4/ Forget the Easter Bunny – Alex’s Mum bought me a delicious Easter Bilby from Haigh’s last night! He didn’t last very long in our flat.

5/ The weather this week is heavenly. We went for pre-dinner drinks at Chuckle Park, a tiny little bar tucked down an alley in the city which had hanging jars with plants and candles in them. Dream.

What’s making you happy this week? X
