Little Things I've Loved This Week #35

One of the things that's kept me away from blogging recently is the fact that I just don't seem to have a lot worth blogging about!

However one post I can definitely get back on track with is this weekly round-up of the little things that make me smile each day. The kind of things that just happen to brighten up the week. So here are the happy moments from the past seven days:

1. Blissful relaxation while having my hair cut. The hairdresser was lovely, and while I don't mind making conversation during a hair cut, she said that sometimes she likes to just let her clients zone out for a while and enjoy a little downtime in life. Now that's something I can totally get on board with!

2. Handwriting compliments from my consultant. I feel like something similar has made it onto one of these lists in the past, but it does make me smile each time! The ward consultant changes every two weeks, and the first time I met this week's, she said she had been admiring my handwriting in patients' notes, and how easy it was to read. Messy doctors' handwriting is not a myth and deciphering my colleagues's notes is a skill!

3. Victoria on ITV. I know we're already pretty far in, but I am loving this series. It's replacing the Downton Abbey shaped hole in my life very well.

4. Joining the local library. When I lived in Bristol, it took me four years to join the library... and when I eventually did, I never took out a single book. Oops! Now that I've moved, I've been much speedier about getting a library card and enjoyed picking up a few new reads.

5. Walking along the river. It was a beautiful, warm evening on Tuesday and I decided to make the most of it with a stroll along the River Thames. It was a great decision and I really enjoyed a moment of true relaxation, sat beside the river watching the ducks, swans, rowers and kayakers on the water.

6. New cushions. I've been really indecisive about how I want to style my flat (which is why there's still no flat tour post yet!), but I spotted these duck cushion covers in Dunelm and couldn't resist them. So I guess I'm going for a sort of country-style theme for the living room...

And tell me, what have you been enjoying this week? :)

  3. Haha, I'm pretty much the only person in the office at work who can translate the GPs handwriting. It's an art form, I'm sure!

  4. I love those cushions!! And I really need to watch Victoria, will definitely have to make some time for it this week :)

    Lovely post to read on a Sunday evening!

  5. I Love that pic from your stroll - so autumny! I've been enjoying the temperatures finally going down this weekend. I so needed the rain!

  6. You can't beat time by the river; where possible I like to run along the Thames path and it's always really relaxing - well, as relaxing as a run can be! x
