So this is my last 100 Days of Happiness post since I’ve reached the end of the project. I have really mixed feelings about this. I’ve absolutely loved taking pictures and it’s been a fun and enriching experience. At the same time I think it’s normal and okay to have days that are wholly unremarkable. All things in balance. And there’s nothing wrong with being too busy living your moments to have to document them… but here goes.
There is a charity shop around the corner from my house that sells second hand stuff in order to help people who have HIV/AIDS. I popped in to have a poke around and found this great salad bowl and baking dish for only £3. Now that’s a bargain to feel good about.
At the age of 67 my dad got his first ever smartphone. I convinced him to download WhatsApp so we could chat. This is the first sweaty post gym selfie I sent him.
My friend, Sam, who is the person I managed longer than anyone else left our company last Tuesday. I am sad not to see him everyday anymore but really happy for all his new opportunities.
My company is moving to a new building in a couple of months time. We went for a visit of the new building and I was happy to practice sitting in the manicured roof garden admiring the 360 degree view of the city.
My work laptop has been on its last legs for a while now. I finally got a new one and it has a touch screen!
I really, really love this Dr Jart BB cream but it’s really, really expensive so I can’t usually afford it but I found it for 50% off. Yay!
On Saturday I went dress shopping for a wedding with my friend, Alex. It was ridiculously hot so I didn’t think I could survive the train journey without a cold drink. One of the off licences near Earlsfield station sells South African products so I stopped in for a Creme Soda. In South Africa creme soda is widely known to be a miracle hangover cure so we call it the green ambulance. It’s great when you’re just overheating too.
Mr O and I both love Bounty chocolate bars because of the coconut centre. I decided to try and replicate them in the form of a cupcake… and they were delicious.
One of our suppliers entered a campaign my team worked on into some marketing awards. We weren’t able to attend the ceremony where we were shortlisted so they decided we should go for a celebratory drink anyway so we spent the evening sipping cocktails in the beautiful Ham Yard Hotel. This picture is of some of their quirky light fixtures.
I bought new gym socks and then I realised they have my name on them. It’s the little things.
