52 Weeks of Happy (5/52)

I am tired and rather fed up but i shall succeed in finding my happy!

• A Winter Bear card
• A lovely and unexpected gift in the post from a friend
• New wellies
• David Hockney's sketches of his dogs. I bought 3 postcards last week.

How are you finding this week? I am starting back at work next week and I think i have tried to do too much in half term. I have quite a few family portrait orders to complete and they aren't done! Busy weekend ahead ....


  1. Sorry to hear you're fed up, half term (or rather the end of) makes me a bit blue too. Too much fun packed into too few days and no work is suddenly replaced by early mornings, absent kids and too much work. Not doing much to cheer you up am I? Sorry - your slices of happy are lovely though. Hope you get everything done x

  2. Isn't the Hockney sketch beautiful? Thanks for sharing it.
    Hope you get through your work and get your happy back xo

  3. I'm sorry to hear your feeling a bit fed up, hope you feel brighter soon and manage to get all your family portraits done. Love the winter bear card, it looks great on the craft. I'm glad you like the little gift, fab wellies too. xx

  4. Sorry you aren't feeling tickity boo (not sure if that's how it's spelt!). I love all you pictures today, I think your cards are great and those felt flowers are so sweet! Try and pop your feet up if you can! :) x

  5. Hello,
    Its always the same this time of year don't you think?
    I love your '4 happy's' they made me smile....
    Those Hockney dog sketches are adorable, I bought my dad the book last year for christmas....
    Bestest wishes to you and yours, fell happy soon!
    Daisy J,

  6. Oh boo to feeling blue, it's so hard when half term comes to an end - a week is never long enough! I love your card and all the other happys, those wellies are gorgeous - and Hockney, well he can do no wrong but when combined with dogginess he's almost too good! Take care and hope you feel brighter soon. xxx

  7. it's cold outside & the thought of going back to work is depressing me too! i worked up in bradford for a year {a long time ago} & going to salts mill was a real weekend treat! i've got a postcard of the dog somewhere to - i must dig it out! xxx

  8. Oh sorry to hear you are a little fed up Nick ... I think its the time of year for it ... love your happy things and the little bear is too cute ... Bee xx

  11. A splash about in those super wellies should help lift your mood.

  12. Oh no, don't be blue. What lovely things! Good luck finishing your orders. I am in crafting panic now, and fear that handmade Christmas gifts will not be completed in time...argh!!! xx
