Little Things I've Loved This Week


It's always nice to look back at what I've done over the past seven days and give some thought to the little things that have made me happy. A little positivity can never be a bad thing, right?! So without further ado, here are the things I've loved this week...

The last film night in Bath. Being out on placement can be really variable when it comes to the social side of things - I live away from my main flat in Bristol and with whoever else happens to share the same placement. After long days in the hospital and studying, it can be all too easy to just hide out in your room alone and not make any effort to be sociable. Luckily this placement, a few of us have made a point of stopping work  watching iplayer early in the evening, having dinner together and then watching a film - almost always with a selection of strawberry sweets from Tesco. We've got through a pretty good list of films, from terrible comedies to some action packed thrillers. We finished up with 'Starter For Ten' seeing as it's set at Bristol University we had to watch it!

Coming home from placement, to not only home made cookies - but a bowl of cookie dough in the fridge too! I love baking things myself, but there's something even nicer about arriving home laden with bags and bedding to find tasty treats waiting. 

Crinkly notebook paper. I've filled up a notebook with notes from my latest placement, and while I haven't especially enjoyed the hours spent writing them out, it's so satisfying to have them all done and the crinkling noise they make when you flick through the pages! 

Ed Sheeran's album, 'X'. I've lost track of how many times I've played it this week. I've been sticking it on while I work and not even noticing the time go by. No matter how many times I hear the songs I'm not sick of them and that's pretty impressive! (Also enjoyable have been the various renditions of Blank Space by Taylor Swift on our journeys between Bristol and Bath...)

Spending a whole hour reminiscing about our Beanie Baby collections with my housemates - it's amazing how many of the names we could remember! It's funny, but it's times like this that make me realise how lovely it is to live with a group of friends - you couldn't have half as much fun doing this if you lived alone. Also, we discovered some terribly named Beanie Babies - did you know there's a lamb called Chops?! Sad face.

I hope you've had a lovely week, feel free to share something you've enjoyed in the comments!

  5. Yes - I love that crinkly notebook paper sound too! It's even better with cheap american paper. I'm about 80% sure that's the main reason that I actually write out my notes!

    1. Haha yes, typed notes just aren't the same! This is thin recycled paper so it's really crinkly! :D x
