Happy Things: August 2017

Well, at least the things I’m holding on to at the moment. I’m up and down quite a lot with some big changes and scary things coming along, so I’m trying to focus on the small stuff, just to keep level.

1.I had a lovely time in Amsterdam. My travelling companion and I just chilled out, walked around, ate burgers, sat in a converted library, read books (well, audiobooks in his case), watched the bats and the parrots…it was a really nice week in a very relaxed city.

2.I’ve learned things, yay! I’m struggling with feeling like I’m failing at everything at the moment, and that I’ve lost or given up on so much…so I’m trying to hold on to this.

3.Trello – I’ve started boards for my writing, editing work, general organisation…it’s only good for certain types of organisation (ie. not in-depth tasks) but I quite like it, and if nothing else it lets me see what’s on my lists to do. I do still have post-it notes on my computer and a colourful notepad for day-to-day things.

4.I want to bake more – and a friend sent me this. GET IN MY FACE.

5. Have I said that I love this? Because I do. Walk the Moon, Shut Up And Dance. I may have been editing while bopping along to it!
