The lovely posts by the equally lovely [personal profile] sgamadison reminded me about my long abandoned '100 Days of Happy', & so here's something that makes me very, very happy:
My little baby Bud running through the bluebell woods! ♥

Considering how poorly he's been & his ongoing medical issues, it's wonderful to see him enjoying life to the full.
I love my boy so much. ♥

Mmmm, coming home after walking with Bud on a wet, wintery day to a lovely cup of tea & a warm croissant. ♥
Happy, happy, happy!

We had a glorious day at Ynyslas beach last Saturday.
An autumn walk by the sea with my two boys is my absolute heaven. ♥
I'm so very, very lucky.

I'm at my sewing machine in the office, looking out onto our garden.  Bud is lying nearby, snoozing loudly.
My heart is bursting with happiness! ♥

Last weekend, it was the annual Dogs' Party for the Lab rescue who brought us our beautiful Bud.  It's such a lovely, happy-making event with so many beautiful dogs who now have their forever homes.
Here's the boy taking part in the fancy dress. The theme was 'the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations' & so Bud went as 'Union Bud'!  He won 5th prize & had a lot of fun! \o/

This is Sid. ♥



He's our gardener's little dog, & he comes to our house once a week to help his dad out. *g* (Sid basically spends the afternoon chilling in the garden, chasing frogs around the pond & being adorable.)
Bud & Sid get on okay - they're not huge friends but they have a sniff & say hello & then both get on with their own very important business!

I'd seen some really cute fabric a while back that I loved but couldn't think of a project to use it for.
Fast forward a couple of months & I was looking at the fabric again in the online shop (okay, I'd been stalking it!) & I saw that they'd only got a few metres left! Noooo!  I knew that I had to buy it right then!  I have a monthly sewing mag called 'Sew' & it always comes with a free pattern & that month it was a really nice little summer dress.  So, I got the fabric & made myself a dress!

(Excuse the creases - I'd worn it before I remembered to take a pic!)

and that wasn't the end of the story! )

Definitely happy-making!

Even when he plods muddy paws through the house, my baby Bud still makes me happy! ♥

I had the best time at my annual writing weekend!
It was lovely to catch up with friends (some of whom I only see once a year) & to chat & laugh.  There was a *lot* of laughing!
bluespirit: (SGA John WRITE!)
I'm getting packed to go away for my annual writing weekend.
I've known this group of lovely ladies for years & years, & this is always a fun time.
I'm not an active writer anymore - I just about manage to write my requisite story for the weekend - but I still love discussing writing, characters, plot development, etc.  Plus, I just love spending time with friends!
So, this definitely a 'happy'! *g*

I hope everyone else has a lovely weekend, too!

I had the most amazing time in London with [ profile] xanthe last weekend.
Along with our lovely friend, [ profile] flyingnorth, & Xanthe's folks, we went to see 'Harry Potter & The Cursed Child'!!!!
Oh my goodness - it was absolutely amazing. I won't spoil anything - #keepthesecrets - but it was a most creative, enthralling, gripping story which is such a wonderful addition to the HP canon. I really am beyond words - it was just so, so fantastic.

Not really a spoiler, but just in case... )


Thank you to [ profile] xanthe for being such an amazing friend & for organising everything! ♥

It's been a while since I last posted, but I wanted to let everyone know that Bud's doing okay.  He still has problems caused by the IBD (& I think this might be the best he gets now) but he's managed to regain some of his weight & is no longer anaemic.  Most importantly, he's happy & still able to enjoy life - just at a slightly slower pace & with more naps (if that's even possible!)
We took him for a week's holiday in Suffolk last month, staying in a lovely little cottage, & he really enjoyed himself.


I really want to get back into LJ & so I'm going to do the 100 days of happy that I've seen about the place.  I can't promise that they'll be consecutive, but I am going to try & post more regularly! *g*
And obviously, still having my beautiful Buddy Sunshine with us & enjoying life is my day 1! ♥
