Week 62 - What has made me happy

This week has been an interesting one. I had confirmation that I had been made redundant, which is good. I have been on a career break since starting university and, whilst it is nice having a job to return to, I wasn't sure that I wanted to go back. It also means I can start doing some freelance work and earn a bit of money to top up my student loan. The boy started school today and I was really rather emotional, which I hadn't expected! So the past week has involved getting uniform, school shoes, occasional treats and a weekend at home as a family, our first all summer!

Here is what has made me happy this week...

Kitchen storage curtainsBetty's cakes

  • I made some long overdue curtains to cover the storage in our kitchen, which previously had just looked messy. I still need to sew them up at the bottom, but progress was made!
  • Getting a very rare treat from Betty's after we had bought the boy's new school shoes.
Morning mist in North YorkshireBosch vacuum cleaner
  • The children being back at the childminders, and getting a moment to catch up on all the washing from our various holidays!
  • My new vacuum cleaner. I bought this with my redundancy money from work and it is amazing, so very, very quiet!
Handmade PE BagHandmade PE Bag
  •  I attempted making my first ever PE bag for my son for school. It was such a success, that a friend asked me to make one for her daughter. So I have discovered that I make nice PE bags!
