52 weeks of happy (29/52)

Thanks for the lovely comments on my last couple of posts – it’s always lovely to hear from you!

So another week has passed, and here are my happies from the week that was:

1. Baby boy granny patchwork blanket – complete!

I finally finished my latest blanket this week. A present for my friend Emsie, who is patiently waiting for her little boy to arrive – her due day was Saturday. As Ems reads along with The House of Jones, I couldn’t post too many pics along the way but will do a big reveal when I get a mo. I was really chuffed with how this one turned out.

2. New furniture

The new one is quite a bit smaller which has already made a big difference in the room. I’m trying to be good and not clutter the top with lots of my bits and bobs! Since this photo was taken we’ve hung a picture on the wall above it too. Exciting stuff.

3. Wahey!

And Wahey was exactly how I was feeling as we’ve had the outcomes of the restructure at work and after a bit of uncertainty (my role was at risk of redundancy), I’ve been told I’ve got a permanent role in the new team. Yippee to that!

4. Walk across the meadows

Just a quick one from me today – I’ve got dinner in the oven and it’s going to be ready any minute!

I hope that you’re having a very 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!
