I know that there’s a blog hop which gets people to post some of the things that have been making them happy during that week. I’ve never joined in on it, but I like the idea of it, so here are some of the things that have made me happy this week:
  • Finally getting to watch the first series of Game of Thrones on blu ray
  • Taking part in a sweepstake at work for the Grand National, didn’t win anything but it was good fun
  • Lovely weather so I’ve actually been able to get washing out on the line so it smells all fresh when it comes in
  • Reading lots of interesting blogs as part of the A to Z Challenge as well as finding lots of nice comments on my blog
  • Exciting things coming up in the rest of the week including a meal out with people from work and a trip to the cinema

What about you? What have been your happy-making things this week?


  1. Reading always makes me happy. I have to admit I still haven't read any of the Game of Thrones yet.

    New follower here. I'm stopping by from the "A to Z" challenge and I look forward to visiting again.


    1. Terrible as it sounds, I wanted to hold off reading the Game of Thrones books in case something happened to George R.R. Martin before he finished writing the series. I'd definitely recommend them, I like the way they include politics and religion in such a huge and well-rounded fantasy world. :-)

      Thanks for stopping by and I'm sorry I've taken so long to reply.

  2. I won a whole box of books in a blog contest the other day so I've been happily reading every chance I get.

    1. Well done you! That's got to be one of the best prizes ever. There's nothing quite like getting lost in a bunch of good books.


Let me know what you think. :-)
