52 Weeks of Happy...6/52

Hello there!

I hope you are all well. Joining in with Jen over at little birdie, here are this week's happy things: 

  • Completing the Leeds Abbey Dash 10k race on Sunday in under an hour, and 7 minutes faster than last year. Woop! Thank you so much for all your support and good wishes for the race, they really meant a lot to me. 
  • Clean sheets. Heaven. I don't get to lie in anymore so I have to go to bed early with books and magazines and luxuriate among smooth sheets, plump pillows and soft quilts.
  • The Christmas magazines. I love them. CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!!
  • Season three of Danish crime drama The Killing started on BBC4 last weekend; we have just watched the second episode. It is superb.
Another small happy which I'll sneak in is the text I received from John this evening, sent around 6 pm while he was on the train: "Do you fancy getting payday takeaway tonight? Beer, pizza and The Killing?" Yes. Yes I did. And that is exactly what we did.

  1. I'd say that last is a big happy, just not the kind of thing you can photograph! (Gutted this series of The Killing is the last.)

  3. All very happy making things, clean white sheets and gorgeous things to read, and takeaway with a good watch on TV is always good too. Haven't seen The Killing, but just finished American Horror Story... yikes! My son is in Leeds this week, said his having a fab time :) x

  10. Oh well done on your speedy Dash. The magazine pile here is enormous (yet I'm still needing inspiration for Christmas gifts). Love The Killing too. (You might like this: http://www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-radio/video/2012/nov/16/danish-the-killing-video). You've reminded me I need to change the bed linen!

  11. I'm right there with you with the Christmas magazines! Every year I get butterflies when I see them on the shelves, yes I am that sad. I felt like my mum buying the Prima one but it is awesome. Get it if you haven't already!!! X

  20. Well done on the race, that's a great achievement. I love clean sheets and Christmas magazines too. I've not read the simple things yet, must try and look out for that one. xx

  21. Aah lovely and many congrats on your PB for the race. New sheets and the immense pleasure of curling up with a magazine is definitely something I look forward to. I'm already starting to long for my next Simple Things - it's not long till the next one right?

  22. Well done on your PB for the race. I never plucked up the courage to enter one and don't run now. There's a house near me which has had its Xmas decorations up for a week - nooooo! Xmas in magazines - yes. Xmas in homes before December - just wrong!

  23. Love getting into bed with clean sheets too!! I often think if I was a squillionaire I'd have someone put clean sheets on my bed everyday, because I love that crispness : -) Simple pleasures ...
