Week 3 & 4 (52 Weeks of Happy)

I missed a week …. Not because I wasn’t happy …. I was ….. just busy.
Week 3; No photos .... just some love for my friends!
  1. Having encouraging texts from a sunshine of a work friend .... Lisa! And a precious and stolen half an hour coffee with a friend I don't see very often.
  2. My Dad sparing the time to paint and gloss my hallway.
  3. Working on a project with my Mum. We are a great team .... a dream team!
  4. A husband who is full of kind words and empowerment!
Now onto the less soppy and more interesting (for you I mean!) week 4 .....

1. A lovely box of chocolates from my hubby, with a treasured note inside! We have shared one a night before bed. They are scrummy yummy! Mmmmmm.

2. Using up some left over sock yarn for a shopping bag (taken from the Granny Chic book). I keep teasing Craig that I making it him as a man bag ... obviously I am not, it's just funny! I think I am going to keep it to collect all the plastic bags in. I love a bit of organising!

3. Practising the ripple technique thanks Attic24 for a planned housewarming present! My sister has just brought a house .... about 10 mins walk from me. And I want to make her something special. So I am trying different things out to make sure I get it "just right".

4. A new book! Yippppppeeeeee! I am now going to love you and leave you while I enjoy a coffee and some lovely browsing through each page of this delightful book.



  1. We're about as happy as we decide to be, aren't we? So glad I found your blog! It's Ground Hog Day here in the States today. Hope you're enjoying a warm, cozy weekend! -- Jan

  2. Hi there
    You are so going to enjoy that book....I've been peeking at it on Amazon for awhile now and feel very tempted. Let me know what you think of it....although my mind is practically made up but......a bit of extra info is always good.
    Ahhh Attic24 the Queen of Colour.....she was one of the reasons I decided to create my own blog.

    keep well

    Amanda :-)

  3. Great happies Kate ... I love ripple blankets ... wishing you a lovely weekend ... Bee xx
