52 weeks of happy (35/52)

Well would you look at that. Without knowing it, I’m well over half way through my 52 weeks of happy. If I’m honest, when I started this blog series, I thought it would be a short-lived thing, so I’m really pleased to be this far through and still going. I may have been late to the party, and I may have missed the odd week, and done a few weeks at once on occasion – but I’m Doing It. And that feels good.

Anyway, enough chatter, here are my happies from last week…

1. Passiflora comeback

2. Indoor blooms

3. Brownie baking

My friend came over for a BBQ lunch on Saturday (I know, a BBQ in late September!) so I made a batch of chocolate brownies. I over-baked them a little, but they were still delicious. I think the cream and raspberries helped!

4. Circus fun

It’s a really lovely night out: a family show with an old fashioned feel to it – a variety of talent from jugglers and acrobats, to tight-rope walking, clowns and more. We went last year so knew what sort of thing to expect, but they’d done a new show this year which was absolutely hilarious! It really was an evening of superlatives!

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!
