Celebrating a happy day

I am celebrating a happy day. Not that long ago in life terms, I used to have to really dig deep to find happiness in a week never mind one single day. That is before I got treatment for my depression and started working my way back to who I am and giving myself a healthy dose of self-love too.

So today, I woke up and very soon our new gardener arrived. He has done a lovely job. I love our new garden and land but I don’t want to get overly involved in maintaining it. I am not a natural gardener at all.

I spent time in our village talking to the locals in our amazing community. I headed to the supermarket and threw a few treats in the basket too for an indoor picnic that my daughter fancied having just because.

I watched telly without feeling guilty about not just work, work, working.

I tackled some housework but in manageable chunks and ended up getting loads done.

Work went fine today and the blog is looking super pretty I think with its bold new header and badge. I also have a brand new badge for my Facebook group Bloggers on Thin Ice. I am a little in love with my new look.

I spent some lovely quality time with my children playing and talking.

I cooked an amazing meal for dinner.

Now, you find me blogging and watching I’m a Celebrity on the telly.

It’s a fine life full of simple pleasures.

I hope you are celebrating a happy day too.

    It is the simple pleasures that make all the difference. Focussing on the successes and not dwelling on failures. Sounds like you have found a happy balance. #MMBC
