100 Days of Happiness Challenge

Peanut Butter Granola
Peanut butter granola, so yummy – recipe from A Girl Called Jack.

So I have been doing the 100 days of happiness challenge that I discovered through the rather fabulous blog My Make Do And Mend Year – I can’t do many of the fun craft things she suggests but take pictures of things that make me happy? I can do that. The premise is simple and it is to do with mindfullness – essentially making you realise all the things to be happy for that sometimes I certainly tend to take for granted. So here are a selection from the first 38 days of happiness – enjoy! Oh and apologies for some of the photography, I am not particular good at taking pictures but it is fun πŸ™‚

P's bridle
An attempt to be more focused on smaller details, after a fun lesson on P I took a picture of his bridle.
Me and the bloke
Me and Mr Inelegant Horse Rider on holiday up North at the end of last year. This was taken after most of a bottle of gin had been consumed, campervan-ing it up folks πŸ™‚
Stag notebook, purple hairclip and measuring tape bangles
A lovely selection of birthday gifts sent from my sister, it was lovely to get this present on a rainy Saturday
The Intelligent's Woman's Guide to Socialism, Capitalism, Sovietism and Fascism
Brilliant book, scarily relevant today as when it was first published in 1928
Chinese Terracotta Army Lanterns
Amazing lanterns of the terracotta army were in Edinburgh Uni’s Old College over Chinese New Year – they were beautiful. Created by Chinese artist Xia Nan for the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008.
Daffodils that I have managed not to destroy yet πŸ™‚
Howies Waterproof Shorts
Awesome Howies Epic Cotton cycling shorts – they are waterproof and perfect for commuting, brilliant purchase! This was taken on a test cycle going through all the puddles I could find, totally bone dry arse after it all.
Pretty Nostalgic
Beautiful magazine that I found – Pretty Nostalgic. Enjoying it so far!
My Grandparents
My mum got me a copy of this photo that I love of my amazing grandparents who have both sadly passed away. This picture makes me smile everytime, they looks so happy!

    1. I am really enjoying this challenge so far, it is amazing the amount of things you do every day that make you happy but that you forget about (or maybe that’s just me!). It is nice also having a reason to take pictures, I have a tendency to forget then wish I had – photography is not a bad obsession to have! Thanks that picture is one of my favourites.
