5 Things That Made Me Happy This Week #12

Sunday, September 8

Life knocks you down sometimes - when you're on top of the world and suddenly you're falling because someone you care about has died suddenly. Gordon was a family friend and someone I genuinely enjoyed chatting with on a Saturday night in the pub because he really cared. He will be missed by everyone.

Couple with just not feeling 100% and work being busy I've just not found the bandwidth to blog. It's frustrating because I love blogging but the spark of inspiration just hasn't been there. So today I thought I would get the ball rolling again with some of the things that have been making me smile recently. 

Looking for Lobsters on the Coast

In my boyfriends family it's a bit of a secret that his Dad knows where all the lobster holes are along the coast at Johnshaven so last Saturday we got up early when the tide was at its lowest and went out to look for them. The weather was miserable and we only found small lobsters but it was still a good way to spend an hour.

Getting My Mum and Dad's Business Website Live

Mum and Dad's website needed a little refresh so I volunteered to give it ago. I love learning new skills so I signed up to Squarespace and with the help of my dad started creating. I'm going to keep improving it but Colin Smith + Judith Wilson: Architects is now live. Most of all it will be good to have full control and make changes when ever they want. 

Enjoying Pot Sticker Dumplings

My mum recommended the dumplings they found in frozen in Lidl - hers are so good I was sceptical but one night we fancied picking away at food we cooked them up. They were so good I went out and bought another bag to keep for later. 

Getting Out and About with Scott

Every weekend recently we've gone somewhere different - Crathes Castle in the sunshine then for ice cream, Dundee for shopping then Perth for tea at Harvester and yesterday we went to one of our favourite walks at Glen Dye. I love nothing more than spending some quality time with him at the weekend. 

The Flower Field at Laurencekirk

A discovery from a local blogger on Instagram I can't believe I'd never heard of The Flower Field before. It's a pick your own field with an honesty box and peak blogger heaven however, my boyfriend wasn't so willing to stand and take 100s of photos!
