Happiness this week is... #37

Getting back into blogging by joining in with twitter chats and taking inspiration from how my life is currently. Life doesn't have to be amazing and full of days out to find things to talk about. I'm starting a series titled The Depression Diaries (not sure how much I like that now, what do you think?) for which the first post went up yesterday.

New bed sheets! I know this was a thing a couple of weeks ago but my mam bought my single bed at home gorgeous new Cath Kidston covers, what do you think?!
Watching some awesome drama series on Netflix. Utopia and Fringe are incredible! I'm currently watching Fringe and the lead role, Olivia, is a pretty awesome role model. She even tells her boss where to stick it when he tells her she is too emotional for the job at the F.B.I. to which she replies that being emotional makes her good at her job, and that all women are accused of being "too emotional" in the work place.

Spending a whole day reading a cracking book! My sister chose it for me and she couldn't have picked better! I've been raving about The Girl On The Train all day and I'll do a review soon!
Staying for the weekend with the fam. I have the best family (don't let it go to your head guys)!

Mattress slide and trampoline. We thought I was getting two new mattresses yesterday (one for me, one for my truckle) so we dragged the old two downstairs and slid down them and used them as a trampoline before flopping on them in the hall. Turns out the new ones aren't coming until next week...

Seeing Michael Flatley in Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games. Irish dancing is fab, I've always loved it and Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance is the biggest selling dance show ever! He also holds the record for number of taps per second and many more awesome things! 
An Easter miracle! My guinea pig had been missing for six days after the hutch was knocked over in a storm and she came back this morning! I always knew she was scary... six days and she comes back just as fat. Probably ate next doors cat and a few foxes...

So how are you?! I miss you lovely lot and I'm glad I am posting again, I have a few ideas and posts I've got drafted so hopefully I'm back for good :) as I always ask, link me to your latest posts in the comments, I'm still doing terribly at keeping up with everyone! xo


  1. Aw I hope you're feeling better! Good to get back into a routine. The sheets are super lovely, new bedding always makes me happy. Thats awesome about the Guinea pig too! Glad she found her way home. I loooved Fringe, it is a great series! x

  2. That's such good news about your guinea pig, so glad she's safe and sound. I used to have guineas, they're such cute little things! Your new bed covers are SO pretty x

  3. Aw I'm glad your guinea pig came back safe! They're so cute, I miss my piggies.
    Love that Cath Kidston set :) and yay I loved The Girl On The Train too! xx

  4. I deffo think routine is what I need! Same, I just wanna buy more now! Me too, I should have known she'd survive haha, she's a scary piggy! :'D xo

  5. Me too :D we haven't seen next door's cat or the fox that usually comes into our garden all week so I honestly think she ate them... she's a terrifying evil piggy.

  6. Me too! Think she came back even fatter than before! She's probably super pissed we managed to catch her haha! Such a good book! I wish there was more now!

  7. I have The Girl On The Train audiobook that I've still got to listen to, I think I will start it after I have finished Harry Potter :) I've heard lots of good things about it.

    Fringe is totally awesome! Kris and I have watched it through three times now, possibly just two, but we really enjoy it. I haven't heard of utopia, so I think I'll look into that :)

    Hope you had a lovely last day of the bank holiday!

  8. Ugh, Twitter chats... I've always wanted to join one, but the schedule never fits my situation. When people are having Twitter chats at 7-9pm in Brit time, it's early morning where I am :(

    And I still can't believe you read The Girl On The Train that fast!!!

  9. I was able to make quite a few Twitter chats this week so that was nice. I think I maybe needed to cut out one or two though since keeping up with it all can be a lot. Nice sheets & I haven't seen Fringe but I've heard good things.


  10. It's a fab book deffo give it a read! Thank you :)

  11. Aah it's sooo good! I hadn't heard of it but my sister bought it for me! Ahh I am obsessed with Fringe atm! I've watched up to series 3 with one of my housemates and now we're starting from series 1 so our other housemate can catch up! Deffo check out utopia it's fab! xo

  12. Aw man that sucks :/ I'm sure I've seen chats for other time zones around? Haha it's such a good book I got sucked in! xo

  13. It can be a bit of a task trying to keep up! I only take part in one or two a week, if I even remember!

  14. It's not really a thing in my country and I don't know other Twitter chats outside of the UK ones plus #USbloggerchat. Some blogger suggests that I start my own Twitter chats, but what if I get zero response? That'd be so embarrassing! LOL
