52 Weeks of Happy 44/52

I have been looking forward to this moment for a long time, yes a whole week off work, let me just relish and savour that thought for a moment... a whole week!  While the kids have been off school it has been very hard for me to tear myself away first thing in the morning when they are still very much in their teenage vegetative coma slumber. But now I can have a lay in and start the day lazily, PJ's on until it is time to go out and drag ask the teenagers too.  Well that's the plan! Whether this will happen is another story!

 ♥ So my first happy I am sharing with Jen at Little Birdie has to be saying a 'see you soon' to this wonderful place I call work.  It truly is a fantastic place and I am so privileged and lucky to work within its precincts.  The Cathedral always makes me smile when I drive across this path.
 ♥ My second happy is saying 'I told you so' to my two teens.  All those years I was saying 'look at the huge weetabix in the fields' and their faces and tuts said it all - yes I was right!
 ♥ My third happy was a little trip to Hunstanton today which started off very cloudy but ended up warm (but not hot - I don't do hot!).  Very busy being a bank holiday weekend but we managed to find a little corner on the quieter end of the beach where the dog walkers are.
 ♥ My fourth happy has to be a trip we have planned for next week at The Beamish Museum in Co Durham.  This will be a small family reunion and a long train journey but to meet in such a great living museum will be brilliant.  Photos to follow in next week's post.

So a short one this week due to all the planning and school shopping going on but I do plan on having a couple of mornings in my pj's!

I hope you all have a very happy week as I certainly will, especially with the amount of photos that I'll be taking! 

Take care.
