52 weeks of happy (23/52)

 My four simple happy things.

A lovely Mother's Day. Breakfast in bed, handmade gifts and cards from the wee ones followed by a lazy Sunday.

Driving home in daylight from my parent's house yesterday evening. Seven o'clock and still fairly bright. I am so happy to see an end to the long, dark winter nights.

Reading my new recipe book and looking forward to spring food.

Wrapping and posting a little package of happiness to Mrs Bun as part of the Four Happy Things Swap.

Simple happies this week. Hopefully the cold icy wind will disappear and I can look forward to spring happiness this week.

Wishing you all a happy week.


  1. Sounds like a peachy perfect Mothers day. I was spoilt too :o)
    I have also just sent off my goodies to Australia for Lisa'a four happy things swap, have fun with yours xox Penelope

  2. Ah, bliss. What a wonderful day....and to spend it with Nigel Slater (so to speak). What could be better? xx

  3. That sky is beautiful Bee, personally, I'm looking forward to ANYTHING even remotely Springlike.....I'm sooooo cold! :) x

  4. Lovely happy things, Bee - have a great week,

  5. Love that beautiful sky... I'm also very much enjoying the longer and lighter days!
    Love from Mirjam.

  6. Aren't the lighter nights and mornings so much better! I didn't have to put my car lights on once today, and that was with snow falling too (still had blue skies - what's that about?!!). Lovely to read you were spoilt on Mother's Day, same here. I had a date with Daniel Craig though, not Nigel Slater :-)

  7. Lovely post and such a happy one. Enjoy your week!

  8. Any sign of Spring will make me happy now, the sky looks gorgeous. x

  9. It was light this morning when I woke up thinking oh no it must be 8! It was just before 7 but already really light, I love it! Although kids will probably start waking up earlier!!
    Love the idea of the Four happy things swap!

  10. I am sharing your delight in these longer days Bee, although I could do with it being abit warmer! I love your sky picture too x

  11. Great happy moments. Love Nigel Slater...

  13. isn't that Nigel Slater book a delight! I read it like a novel - total indulgence!

  14. Glad you had a wonderful Mothers Day with lovely gifts :) And you are so right about the lighter evenings!

  15. What a lovely collection, still to try your chocolate cupcake recipe.

  16. What very happy things here! That picture of the sky is so serene. Just beautiful Bee xxx

  17. These lighter evenings are so nice, aren't they? I'm noticed the other night that it was still light-ish when I took the kids up for their bath. Glad you had a lovely mother's day.
