Happiness is...


- coming home from work and having two little dogs waiting for me, who don't judge if I've had a bad day and I want to have pizza and chips and wine in vast quantities.

- Nutella on toast for breakfast any meal of the day.

- finding out that you're going to be an Auntie (and a rather fabulous Auntie I must add!)

- watching back to back episodes of the American Office with a friend who loves Dwight Shrute as much as you do.

- receiving kind emails, Tweets and Instagram messages from you all.

- writing a to-do list for the day and achieving every single thing.

- leaving the hairdressers and being happy with the colour (hello ombre / goodbye thin strip of dark roots 2 minutes after getting blonde highlights!)

- chocolate from the American sweet shop.

- sitting down with a cup of coffee and catching up on blog reading.

- buying candles.

  5. Happiness is reading your blog again! ;)
    Congratulations on the news about being an auntie x

  6. This is beautiful Victoria, remember the most beautiful things are often the most simple, and they're the things we tend to forget to appreciate. Take all the time in the world, if happiness right now is sitting with a glass of wine, a pup either side and a spoon in the nutella jar, get a bigger glass and a bigger spoon and be happy. Congratulations on becoming an auntie, you'll be fabulous and I'm sure the little one will adore lily and lola! xo

  7. Congratulations on becoming an auntie, soak up all of those baby cuddles. :-)

  10. We don't have nutella in the house because I would just binge on it, but as you're just a 10 minute walk away, maybe you could deliver some at my next craving?

    And please tell me how you do the achieving everything on your to-do list. Please! x

  11. Congratulations on becoming an auntie! That's so exciting.

    Nutella on toast (or pancakes, or waffles, or on a spoon) really is such a good reason to be happy.
