Admittedly its been ages since I've done one of these posts. But with all the negativity of exams and college being over with, I'm feeling much more positive. I love reading these kinds of posts because they are so uplifting and usually show how the more little and simple things in life are the most rewarding. Anyway here are 5 things that have put a smile on my face in the past week.
1. Visiting my Nan and Auntie
Nowadays I rarely see my Grandma and my Auntie who's living with her now my Granddad's passed away. They live up in Lancashire so it's not like I can pop in whenever I like. We were making our way down from Scotland last week so decided to stay for a few days. It's so lovely being able to see family, and my Grandma and Auntie are two of the loveliest people.
2. Finishing College for the Year!
Yes I am so relieved, however unfortunately I still have to go back next year to finish photography. But I'll only be studying part time so I'm looking forward to getting a job and earning some more money, so I can save some up for University. My exams are over though and as I'm sure you're sick of me saying here I couldn't be happier. No more psychology and I can finally focus on my photography!
3. Newcastle Fun
For my last day at college we went to Newcastle to visit the University and explore the city. I had a really lovely time and I've never been to Newcastle before, so I had a great time walking around and taking photographs. We also had some amazing donuts which me and my friend wouldn't stop going on about.
4. My Best Friend Turned 19!
I've had a great weekend celebrating my bestie's 19th birthday. We went for a meal with some friends and had cocktails and then we went for an evening walk through a nearby park. I've known her for 6 years so I well up thinking of how much she's grown up.
5. Cooking with my Bestie
I slept over at my best friend's house the night of her birthday and the day after we had a great time listening to music and making cookies and a roast dinner for her family. She's a bakery student so I get to play around with all her specialist equipment. We normally bake something like a cheese cake so it was nice to make these Millie's style cookies.
Thanks for reading, what has made you happy this week?
