The Sunday Post: Things That Made Me Happy This Week

My favourite time of the week has returned, and I'm currently writing this post whilst having a relaxed Sunday evening filled with copious amounts of chocolate and pampering after a tiring weekend at work!
I've decided I need to add a bit more continuity to my blog, so every Sunday evening (she says with optomism...) I'm bringing to you a run-through of everything that has made me happy in the week leading up to! Even if you've had a rubbish week that you can't wait to be over with and you're knackered after a 12 hour shift, it's nice to look back on the small things that put a smile on your face and be a bit grateful for the good things in life.

What made me happy this week...

- Chocolate. And lots of it! I've been moaning constantly to anyone that will listen about the fact that I need to tone up and stop eating such crap food but this week I thought SOD IT. It's nearly christmas and if I want to eat an entire bag of Cadbury's Snow Bites then I bloody well will do! Being healthy is what January is for...

- Christmas decorations! On my walk home from work earlier, everything looked so pretty with all the lights adoring the houses! Where I live is pretty anyway but all the houses looked so magical! 

- Good friends. I'm lucky enough that I get to work with such a fab group of people and last night was spent with a couple of them (and a few cheeky beverages) and it was just what I needed!

- I'm going to Leeds tomorrow! If you've kept up with my blog you'll know I only went this time last month but I'm going back and I've been so excited for it all week! Need to get my behind into gear and do some Christmas shopping though and not just spend all of my money in Space NK like last time!

- My other half. So incredibly cringey I know, and we've had our ups and downs this week but I bloody love that guy so much and I am enjoying lots of winter cuddles and nights in with him lately!

- The Imitation Game. I went to see this at the cinema on Monday and it was AMAAAAZING. All go see it, seriously...Benedict Cumberbatch, I salute you, you incredible actor!

  2. I love happy posts, they're definitely some of my favourites to read. December is a month of complete indulgence, you eat that chocolate! Tonight, the round table came round collecting with Santa in his sleigh the little boy who came to our door was so enthusiastic and determined to get Santa to come and bring us sweets for our donation, that made me happy!

  3. The Imitation Game made me cry so much, it was amazing! I'm from Bletchley originally so it was very exciting to see my little home town on the big screen!
