52 weeks of happy (46/52 & 47/52)

Another double dose of 52 weeks of happy this week.  I've been so busy with the little ones returning to school and countless school runs, time seems to simply disappear before my eyes.

I wish I could grab it and squirrel some away.  I expect things will mellow as routine takes over.  I'm looking forward to relaxing a little.  Maybe I'm kidding myself but I live in hope.

Anyway, my four simple happy things this week include one extra special serving of loveliness.  I became an aunt again.  My brother and his wife had a beautiful baby boy last week.  He is so precious and perfect.  A gorgeous new addition.

My sewing class is making me so happy.  I love it.  My teacher has a wealth of knowledge and is so generous in sharing it.  I get lots of one-to-one time with her.  Just perfect.

Taking part in Mezz's handmade card swap and receiving a parcel from Hannah from dainty and ivory.  It included beautiful cards and lots of pretty gifts.  Happy mail is just lovely.

Picking vegetables from the garden and trying new recipes.  Bean soup with curly kale, beetroot and chocolate cake, courgette fritters and steamed runner beans. All delicious.

Joining up as always with lovely Jen at little birdie and wishing you all lots of happiness in the coming week.


  1. Such lovely cheerful things Bee, the joy of a new baby, sewing classes and growing your own veggies, perfection for early September...oh and a happy parcel too, what more could a girl ask for :o) xox Penny

  2. Lovely happies. Congratulations to all of you on the new baby.

  3. I do know that crazy schedule you talk about!
    I don't know if I'm coming or going on some days and by the time I slow down and realize it's time to relax, it's time for bed!
    Much love to you,

  4. what a beautiful thing the card swap sounds like!! I'd love to be involved in something like that. I'm such a sucker for handwritten notes!

  5. Some very lovely happies. Yes the start of school has caught me for six and time seems to dissipate into this air, but I'm sure in a couple of weeks we will be back in the swing of things. The card swop with Mezz looks like such fun. Enjoy your garden delights, it's so lovely to have soup again. Happy week to you Bee xoxo
