52 Weeks of Happy (21/52)

Joining in with Jen from little birdie. Here's my pick of happies from the last week.

♥ My thirteen year old turning fourteen. Whilst I was waiting to pick him and his friends up from the cinema I did a spot of blog writing in the coffee shop.
"Are you turning into a hipster?", he asked when the film had finished. 
I wish. I had to google 'hipster' hoping it meant cool. It means both cool and uncool (depending on the definition) but either way I'm definitely too old to be one. I'm taking it as a compliment anyhow.
♥ My new camera. I'm having lots of fun with this already. Just had to pose for the self-portrait photo... sorry.
♥ Healthy and varied breakfasts - no diets here but an attempt to shake off winter sluggishness. So far this week we've had poached egg on toast, fruit and yoghurt and it's porridge tomorrow. Beats our standard cereal.
♥ I found this bargain Harlequin fabric in a remnants basket and have used it for my hoop pin-board above my desk. So, at last my desk area is complete. I'm looking forward to showing it to you in the next few days. 

Hope you're having a good week wherever you are. Thank you for reading, commenting and following this week - it makes me very happy to connect with you.

Be happy xo
