Morning! I started this new series last Monday where I list five things that made me happy in the last week. The last few days have been quite challenging so, while I’d quite like to skip writing this post late on Sunday night after a hectic few days, I know that it’s even more important that I do write this post. The times when you feel stressed and really don’t want to take time to stop and try to think of what good happened in a trying week, are exactly when you most need to. So, here goes:
:: walking to work with blue skies after days of torrential rain
:: watching my favourite cow’s little calf grow from spending all her time in her mum’s shadow to becoming brave and wandering over to the footpath to say hello
:: making a dinner date with friends for a few weeks’ time and so having those few weeks to look forward to it
:: spending the weekend with family and finding things to laugh about even when the reason we’re together is far from funny
:: hugs from my mum
What’s made you feel happy this week? Even if you’ve had a tough ol’ week I bet there are five things you can find in there that gave you a cheery feeling. I’d love to know so do please join in with a blog or facebook post, instagram pic – don’t forget to send me the link – or leave a comment below!
We’ve been busy in the studio and can now reveal new notebooks, greeting cards, 2015 calendars (for the super organised) and a rather natty item I like to call the Happy Paper Box!
:: The Happy Paper Box – a box filled with a surprise selection of the green gables’ stationery for the ultimate Happy Post Day (worth at least £15 but costs you only £10)!
:: Three new A5 kraft cover notebooks featuring hand drawn nature-inspired designs, available individually or as a set
:: A new range of greeting cards featuring messages created from hand stamped letters for you to personalise
:: 2015 Year of Living Happy calendars available as A5 desktop, A4 hanging and A2 wall planner
So, take a look, have a browse around the virtual aisles and let me know what you think. And don’t forget, all orders placed before midnight on Friday 10 October will receive a FREE GIFT!
Today I’m starting a new blog series! Each Monday I will post about what made me happy during the previous week. A bit like writing three things you’re grateful for each day (which has been proven many times over to improve your base level of happiness and keep it raised), I think reflecting on five things that made me happy over seven days is bound to boost my mood too.
I’d love it if you wanted to join in and post what made you happy on your blog, on instagram (I’m @thegreengable), on Facebook (I’m facebook.com/thegreengables) or feel free to leave a comment on this post if you like!
So, I have found that happiness is…
:: wearing new boots with thick socks, bring on the autumn wardrobe!
:: wandering around the grounds of the building my studio’s in, don’t think I’ll ever tire of it
:: meeting gorgeous friends for lunch and non-stop natter, v good for the soul
:: curling up on the couch with my pooch and catching up on Strictly Come Dancing, so happy it’s back on our screens!
