This week happiness is... #22

Christmas shopping! I keep going into town to look around the markets, I've resisted buying so many things for myself haha!

Cooking my first ever roast dinner! I didn't cook the meat, but I don't eat that, I did the rest with some help from my housemate while the others handled the chicken and the cheesecake, made from scratch, for dessert! It was so yummy! It just ended up being a bit cold 'cos we took so many pics of our effort before eating!

Snuggling up with a full tummy under a Christmas blanket to watch Love Actually.

Christmas songs! I've only just started playing them around the house and I discovered I made a Christmas spotify playlist last year! The 50s Christmas songs are cracking!

Breakfast in bed.

Finishing up my last counselling session and a check up at the Drs feeling much better than I have in a while. The Dr seemed so genuinely pleased to see I was doing better, especially as the appointment had been made for me to get a prescription for anti-depressants but hey here's hoping I can carry on without them!

Finally getting to come home to my family for the holidays. I've only seen them once briefly in the last three months so I am mega excited to be back home with them.

Seeing more green and trees in a few minutes back in Sussex than I have in the whole of Portsmouth for three months. We also nearly hit some deer (we didn't so it's still a happy story...).

Choosing the Christmas tree and decorating it with the family, one of my favourite Christmas traditions.

What's made you happy this week? Are you getting involved in the Christmas feels or getting sick of it already? xo


  1. Look at the little snowman face bauble!!
    I'm getting into the Christmas spirit now, we put our tree up last night so it's all tinsel in hair and Christmas jumpers for me!

    Breakfast in bed. Always a win.

  2. Yaaay Christmas! I had cornflakes in bed this morning, not the same as cheese on toast but still good! x

  3. I finally cooked my first roast this week too! Though just all the trimmings as it was a vege roast, so I made a goats cheese and carmalised onion tart instead of the meat and it turned out really well! Was very chuffed. I always love going home for the holidays, such a great time to recharge the batteries! x

  4. Yaaay! Yeh, I didn't cook the chicken, or eat it! I didn't make anything in it's place, I wasn't even able to finish everything on my plate so I didn't need anymore haha. xo

  5. Christmas tree is so pretty <3
