Sunday Praise: What’s Made Me Happy This Week?

Welcome to my weekly post where I celebrate the small, good things that are getting me through these very strange times.

  • I know the trailer for Wild Mountain Thyme is utterly, utterly terrible, but the reaction to it on social media was a lot of fun this week!
  • We took a bit of a breather from Ozark (man that show is fast-paced) to watch Season 3 of Call My Agent which is just the most charming of shows.
  • My sister bought me a very cute cup for my birthday and I swear my coffee has been tasting better since I started drinking out of it.
  • Another birthday present that made me happy this week was a delicious bottle of port. There is nothing like a wee glass of port in front of the fire to make you think everything is right with the world.
  • New stationery always helps…
  • I have come to realise that when thing are getting tough or stressful, a quick trip to the North Coast will blow the cobwebs away and put things in perspective.
  • Volume 6 of the gorgeous Winter Pages, the annual Irish Writing Anthology has been published and I got my hands on a copy at yesterday.

So, what in your life deserves some praise this week? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I love those Leuchturm notebooks – think it might be about time for me to get another one, in fact! My Sunday Praise thing is that I got to see the friends in my support bubble this week for the first time in a while, and it was just great to spend time with them 🙂

  2. A coastal trip of any duration is a wonderful thing for the soul.
    That is a cute cup! Be careful of those shiny accents as I put mine in the microwave just to heat it up a bit and bam… explosion.

  3. Happy belated birthday. what a lovely mug! I am using a Leuchturm notebook these days too, but I might switch to some other brand with thicker paper next time around. Let us know if you’re happy with it, I’m a great stationery fan!
