52 weeks of happy (3/52)


Little bit late with this week’s happies, hey ho!

1. Snuggly socks

I was very glad of these cosy bed socks while I was off sick. A very jolly Christmas present being put to good use! (They’re from Joules if you fancy a pair!).

2. Finishing my book

I started reading I capture the castle by Dodie Smith following Jacquie’s recommendation (thank you!). It took ages for my library reservation to come through, but it was worth the wait. First book I’ve read in ages and I loved it.

3. Back to crochet

Work in progress! I’m making these gorgeous hanging hearts, following Lucy’s pattern. It’s been a little while since I picked up my hook but these are super addictive, and quick, to do. Just a little more stitching, sewing up and stuffing and they’ll be done!

4. Baking

Friends came to visit yesterday so I baked a batch of carrot cupcakes. I didn’t bother icing them as I did not have much luck with the icing in the recipe last time (far too runny, what a waste of cream cheese), but actually they don’t really need it. Delicious!

I hope you’re having a happy week,

About thehouseofjones

Hello! Thanks for visiting, it's lovely to see you! I'm Jones, I'm 31, and I live with my husband (The Bert) and chinchilla (JB) in Gloucestershire. When I'm not at work I love crochet, sewing, cooking, baking, taking photos and dabbling in a bit of gardening and grow-your-own, and this is what I write about mainly. That and the general chit chat of life. So, take a look around, comment if you'd like, just make yourself feel at home really!

    I haven’t read that book either but also saw it on Jacquie’s blog and thought it might be worth reading! I’m doing the 52 weeks of happy too, I’m enjoying both writing it and seeing other peoples snippets of happiness 🙂
