A late 52 Weeks of Happy joining in with the lovely Jen from Little Birdie. Here are my happy moments from late June and the first week of July. Some perfect summer moments.
... I'm glad I waited for the weather to warm up!
♥ Warmer weather, a heatwave, a hot spell - call it what you will - it's here in the UK! Yippee! After a BBQ on Friday we have eaten most meals, including breakfast and many, many strawberries outside. Sitting outside in the evening sipping wine and chatting instead of watching TV feels very chilled and European - like we're abroad or camping.
♥ Glasto on the BBC watched on the iPad (in the garden) and on TV late into the night. There was superb coverage this year from the big names to many lesser names. The Rolling Stones were in superb form - a bit frayed around the edges but just awesome. We also loved Jake Bugg, Kenny Rogers, Chic, Rodriguez, I am Kloot, Ed Harcourt, First Aid Kit, the Mumford's encore (with friends) and The XX. We're still enjoying the Glastonbury afterglow as we catch up with the many acts on the i player.
♥ My Dad's birthday - lovely to spend some time with my Dad and my family as we celebrated his 77th year. These marguerite flowers are from my parents' garden. I love them.
♥ Watering my plants in the early morning. Stepping outside early in the day to water my plants is a simple pleasure not to be rushed. Just taking in the fresh air and feeling the promise of a new day relaxes me. A very tiny watering can helps prolong this peaceful activity. I must add this to many simple pleasures list on my sidebar.
♥ Ooh and a fifth happy - 77 years later and we have a British Wimbledon champion. Those last few points were exhausting! Murray and the rest of the country can relax now :)
Be happy xo
