Happy List #3 | Baby Showers, Horses and Knitted Cacti

I cannot believe I am sitting here writing my third #HappyDaysLinky post!

Thanks again goes to Sian and Katy for hosting

So, what has put a smile on my face this week?

  • Sian’s baby shower
    On Sunday I headed out for a child-free afternoon to a lovely little cafe which was hosting the event. It was such a chilled out occasion and it was great to sit and have a natter with some of the other mums with a cup of tea. As I’m on the Cambridge Weight Plan at the moment I didn’t eat anything but the spread looked incredible, I admired it all from afar and didn’t cave! Go me!
  • Photoshoot
    Me and my girl went out with Katy, Lils and Wills to a photo shoot for Disney Store. Sounds very glam doesn’t it?! We were there as we knew the lady who kindly allowed the photo shoot to take place in her stable block, and for a bit of moral support. It was the cutest thing ever! Here is the link in case you havent seen it already. I took a few shots of my girl whilst we were hanging around and she was pretty chuffed that she got to brush a horse (which is now her horse apparently! Hah!)
  • Friendship
    On Thursday mornings of late I have been meeting up with one of my lovely friends and going out on country walks along with my dog for a bit of exercise, (we are both on health kicks right now) and a chinwag. In this digital age it is so easy to not bother meeting up and just do the odd text/Facebook message here and there and before you know it you have missed months and months of each others company. She is one of my closest friends and it is great that we now have a regular chance to meet up and put the world to rights. Love you lady! x
  • Cactus Craze
    I was having a look around my nearest Vinegar Hill store over the weekend and I saw these cactuses! I HAD to have them. I didn’t have my bank card on me at the time so I went back on Thursday to get them. The small one is by sass & belle (I am a big fan of their products) and the big one is by Temerity Jones and I think they are amazing.

     They had another one in there over the weekend which was also by sass & belle with pink flowers on but when I went back to get it, it had already sold (boo!) But I LOVE these. I already have these cactus ornaments from Ikea on the windowsill of my upstairs landing. So these will be joining them. At least I can’t kill these “plants”, bonus!
  • Weight Loss
    Its been a bit of a case of slow and steady wins the race for me over the past couple of weeks. I feel like I have been teetering on the edge of my 4 stone award for weeks now (in reality it’s not been that long at all) my weight loss is starting to level off a little now I think, so it seems like it’s not happening. For the first little while, I lost about 1 and a half stone every month but now it is much less. Anyhow, Im quietly confident I should be showing you all my 4 stone rosette on Monday. Not bad for 14 weeks work eh?!
  • Holiday (hopefully!)
    Mr. S has hinted that we may be about to book our holiday for the year to sunnier shores. I am so excited! We had the most amazing time last summer in Ibiza, I cannot wait to make more memories on our holiday this year. I wonder where we will be heading to?


That’s all for this week. I hope you have had a good week too!
