100 Days of Happiness: Day 25
Today is my stepdad, David’s birthday!
My Gran, The Queen, brought out the sherry!
100 Days of Happiness: Day 18
This one’s for Emma!
I do love this photo. The spectrum of colours in it are so bright and it just captures the moment so well! It’s from a day / night out last year of which I remember fondly. It was the right mix of people at the right time offering some sound advice. It’s important to take counsel from the right people. That’s a life lesson to be learned and remembered!
100 Days of Happiness: Day 17
My mum and I were casually strolling around Ayr and we happened to stumble upon a little record shop called Big Sparra Records.
We were like.. let’s go in and have a look around!
And OH MY DAYS I’m SO glad we did!
For today shall be known as the day Stevie Nicks fell into my arms!
Well. Of sorts.
Casually sitting there were two records by Stevie Nicks!
(I’m quite the Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac fanboy hence the almost tears-of-joy reaction that I managed to just conceal from my mum, Yvonne and Ian Wallace, the shop owner!)
The two albums were 1981’s Bella Donna and 1983’s The Wild Heart of which, and I thank her SO much, my mum bought for me!
I swear… It was fate!!!
Thank you mum! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
So today I got the all clear from the hospital regarding my little heart scare
And my gran gave me a toy pug!
What’s not to love about this day?!?!
100 Days of Happiness: Day 15
When I started out with this little 100 Days of Happiness blog it was a half-hearted attempt to focus my energies on something. It was going to be a way in which to focus on one thing each day in order to take my mind off what was really going on in my life.
It’s been a tough three weeks. I’m not saying this in a flippant manner either. It has been a tough three weeks for me, the other person involved and the people surrounding us. It’s been unpleasant, unresolved and I managed to reach a dark, dark place that I never knew existed, so much so that I had to be hospitalised with what could have turned into quite a serious incident. But it didn’t.
Over the weekend, while dealing with the after effects of a near heart attack, some further drama ensued of which I allowed myself to be drawn into. However. There comes a time when you have to draw a line and say ENOUGH.
And enough… is enough.
Shit happens. Shit happened.
Whatever will be, will be.
I know it should be Donna Summer’s Enough Is Enough playing here given the above, but I do enjoy MacArthur Park much more!
100 Days of Happiness: Day 12
I am a long-term Fleetwood Mac fanboy. I absolutely adore them. Rumours, steeped in its angsty and angry mythology has been the soundtrack for the past wee while and today it just hit the nail on the fuckin head!
I have surrendered to absolute clarity today.
And I am so, so happy right now!
