10 things that made me happy {Week 6}

This week was a busy one and I’m late with posting my 10 things. I was busy working on a uni assignment that was due on Friday and therefore didn’t really have time to blog during the week. And then, this weekend, Mr Imperfect and I went away for the weekend with a couple of our friends. We only got home an hour or so ago. It’s been a blissful weekend and while it made me incredibly happy, it didn’t make the list of 10 things that made me happy between 3rd October and 9th October 2015.

Long weekend! It was great having the Monday off!

Daylight savings began. I love that it’s brighter for longer now.

Warm weather. We had some awesome weather on the long weekend and even though it’s spring, it felt like summer.

The beach. Yes, I spent a lot of my long weekend at the beach.

Watching stand-up comedy with friends. Tommy Dean was funny. Friends are always great.

Being back at uni and seeing the end of the semester. Bittersweet.

Finishing my assignment for Feature writing andΒ having some wonderful friends and colleagues agree to be interviewed as part of the article.

Hearing something positive from a client about my influence on them getting better.

My team leader giving me some positive feedback on my role.

Driving down south for a weekend away after work on Friday.

On the whole, it was a pretty good week. There were a few hiccups as always but generally, I tried to stay positive and look for the silver lining.

How was your week?

Do share!

***Linking with Krysten and Lindsay for 10 things that made me happy***

Until next time,

Cheers!!!

    It is such a good idea, Sanch, of jotting down the good things that happened during the day, or the week. It is like concentrating only on the good things, even if they are those minuscule things that we would otherwise not even consider worth remembering! A really good way to think positive, right? πŸ™‚

      That’s exactly why I love this link up Shilpa…since I’ve been quite depressed the past few months, I thought this would be a great way to retrain myself to look at the good things in life πŸ™‚

    Oh it’s getting so hot these days… I prefer the mornings and evenings. Loved your pictures of Jervis bay. The water looks so refreshing πŸ™‚ I have never watched a live comedy show… I would love to one day. Hope you have many more beautiful things to talk about this month.

      Oh you should totally watch live stand-up. Try going during the comedy festival next year…usually last about an hour and you can see some good ones. Otherwise some local hotels have comedy nights too. I am a huge fan of stand-up! πŸ™‚

    Down by the beach and summery weather looks like lots to be happy about. It was rather an eventful weekend, that long weekend. I loved ours too. I was only thinking how summery it has been, only to realise, hey! it’s still spring!

      I know, right? If spring has been this warm, summer can only be hotter. Not that I’m complaining.

    Sounds like a great week, personally and professionally. It’s great to get good reviews and hear you helped others. Hopefully they will pass it on and help others, you will have started something pretty terrific! Good for you! And thanks for the vicarious visit to the beach, it’s getting cooler here, fall is upon us, share all the warm beach images you can, we’re gonna be freezing!
