Five Things That Made Me Smile This Week #45

Happy Sunday, guys! How has your week been? I’ve had a fairly quiet one, but it was definitely needed. Things are about to get hectic in the capital again, as the Christmas markets open next week. I’ll admit, I’m looking forward to a mulled cider or two… Until then, here are the highlights of the week gone by.

Cutting out coffee

Ok, this didn’t exactly make me smile. But, I’m pretty proud of myself for not having a drop of coffee all week. I’ve also cut out sugar from my tea in an attempt to reduce the amount of sugar in my diet. I’m trying to make small changes that will eventually have a big impact… wish me luck!

Half day

How nice is it to leave work at lunchtime? I had a half day on Tuesday and it seemed to make the rest of the week go by really fast. Do recommend.

Christmas bedding

I’m slowly getting into the festive spirit and marked the occasion by buying my first ever Christmas bedding set. It’s a cute stag pattern from the Happy Linen Company, which I’d never heard of before, but saw someone sharing it on Twitter – the power of marketing, right there! I even treated myself to 100% cotton… You know you’re getting old when bedding makes you happy.

Staying with the poodles

I headed home on Friday night and stayed at my brother’s house for a change. I intended to only stay over one night, but ended up staying on Saturday too. That meant spending more time with the girls, which is always my favourite thing to do. Although, I did wake up in the middle of the night to Bo puking all over the bed. Ah, dogs.

Getting my hair done

This was why I went back home. I still haven’t found an affordable place to get my hair done in Edinburgh, so I still go to Fullworks in Irvine. I waved goodbye to my pesky roots again and chopped a good inch or so off. It’s definitely the shortest it’s been in years and I kind of love it. Selfies to come shortly…

Until next time,

Let me know your thoughts...
