Today I caught myself enjoying many moments. You may argue that most of these moments are mundane and run of the mill, however, since deciding to take part in this challenge I have noticed that for me the most enjoyable moments are those that are steeped in the ordinariness of everyday life. This morning I savoured the aromas of the herbs and spices that simmered away on the cooker while I whipped up a batch […]

I spent the morning in one of the most relaxing places I know. I walked in the door with a thick head of unruly hair and walked out with sleek, smooth, shiny locks all thanks to my very talented hairdresser.  I had my hair cut quite short during the summer of 2012. I had just finished a Post Grad Diploma and wanted a change. You know how it is. The last time I had felt […]

Day 8 of the #100happydays challenge. I’m realising as the days go by that there are many many happy moments in my days. Usually I’d just be plodding along doing my thing and not really noticing.

Our cute but […]

I’m also going to get comfy to watch […]

Yesterday was day three of my #100happydays challenge.This is the image that made me happy: Yesterday I returned to work after being off/unemployed since December 13th. I can honestly say the feeling of dread that hung over me since receiving the phone call last week was like a dark heavy cloud of gloom. Don’t get me wrong, I realise that in these recessionary times I am very lucky to have a job. I appreciate the […]

Day two of #100happydays started of on a good note. As I finished making pancakes for young sirs breakfast I was handed this delicious cup of coffee. My favorite way to start the day. My mother and father in law gave me a coffee machine for Christmas, well, when I say me, I do mean us! The thing is Darren rarely drinks coffee so I have claimed ownership of it. I haven’t had a cup […]
