10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week {08.05.17}

After a little bit of blog neglect (saaaaad times) I thought I'd try and get things back on track again. Kicking of with one of my favourite posts to write, 10 things that made me happy this week. It's a chance to look back on the little moments that have made me smile recently, I find it really helps my headspace when I'm stressed - a small reminder that it's definitely not all that bad. This post was also one of my Aunties favourites, she used to tell me that when I ended the post with 'what made you happy this week?' it really made her think about the things that made her smile and she loved that. She'll forever be the brightest star in the sky, shining even brighter yesterday with it being her birthday - so this post is for her. 
May Diary
1. A handful of moments from care home performances last week. Singing 'Please Mr Postman' to a gentleman who used to be a postman - He was beaming! A grandson watching his grandma dance and sing non-stop for 45minutes, she was loving it, he even got up to join her. A 90 year old man asking me to marry him. Too cute. (I said Yes. Obvs.)
2. Cocktails and cry-laughing with Emma on Saturday night. 
3. Dancing to Magic FM in the kitchen with mum on Saturday afternoon. She was baking, I was getting ready to go out and they were playing #1's from the 90's. 
4. A recent trip to Dorset with my dad and little brother to visit family. Collecting sea glass on Charmouth Beach, eating ice creams and visiting the crystal shop brought back all the memories of happy seaside holidays. 
5. I received my first payment from YouTube. It's not huge, it won't be buying me a house, car or holiday and to most people won't seem like much, but to me it's kind of a big deal. I don't blog or make videos for money (if I did I'd of quit a looooong time ago) so this is purely a bonus, to earn a bit of money doing something I absolutely love. When you pour your heart and soul into something, it's very rewarding.
6. Doing 'adulting' so well last Tuesday morning. Insurance quotes sorted, student finance forms, postal vote applications, prescriptions picked up. Thing I'd been putting off for a long time so I felt so happy to get them all done! 
7. Holiday shopping with Charlie. One month to goooo! 
8. Bluebells. I love seeing the blur of purple as I drive through the countryside.
9. Despacito - a new song J Biebs features on. It's bloody amazing and gives me all the holiday salsa vibes.
10. Blake Lively's look for the Met Ball. Or just Blake Lively's look in general. Or Just Blake Lively. 

What's made you happy recently? :)

*There WILL be a post coming on Friday, no more slacking from me!
