What's Made Me Happy This Week #1

Seeing my tomatoes start to ripen  /  Such pretty reds
Sitting down with my watercolours  /  Cosy hot chocolate

I was completely inspired by Rosie to start documenting the things that have made me smile every week.  It's such a lovely idea and I'm hoping it will fill my days with all kinds of positive vibes!

I've had a tomato plant of tiny green baby fruit for a while now and I'd been getting increasingly impatient, waiting for them to finally ripen.  This week, they did just that!  Now my plant is full of tiny spheres of different shades of red!

I finally plucked up the courage to dig out my watercolours - nine months after I made it one of my New Year's resolutions.  Sitting for a few hours with my paintbrush in hand has been really calming.  I'd certainly recommend it if you've had a busy or stressful time.

Lastly, the emergence of the leather skirts, Zara's coats and ankle boots galore has left me highly anticipating the seasonal drinks in Starbucks and Costa.  For now, hot chocolates have been satisfying my sweet cravings!

What's been making you happy this week?

  3. Wow that robin is adorable, I haven't painted in years. I use to always be drawing but a really bad A Level art teacher really put me off the subject and while I'll still go around art galleries I've lost all the confidence in painting/drawing. Maybe one day!
