As many of you have noticed from the tenor of my words, life has been stresspants lately. I’ve been working through weekends and until midnight on weekdays (with evening breaks to make dinner and multiple desserts) and, while I still have to knock out another report by Monday equivalent to the 45-pager I sent through on Friday before dealing with the other deadlines that piled up last week, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Thankfully, there have also been little lights in the tunnel. Here are my Happy Lights.
A soy cappuccino at Koko Black, chosen because it comes with real dark chocolate rather than chocolate powder on top.
Do you know what I wish? I wish adult-sized babycinos existed. Then I could order a long black and an entire cup of froth on the side. ALL THE THINGS.
My eponymous-sweet-tooth-sisterfriend Hannah sent me a pouch of black salt all the way from America, simply because I’d never tried it. That lady is all kinds of lovely, and the message she wrote to me on the back of her Christmas card made my heart soar.
Speaking of lovely ladies:
I miss Jeniqua. I miss her greatly. Luckily, the emails we write and the tales she tells of her wild adventures in America and Europe lift me up and inspire me.
Speaking of horrendous [night-time-no-light] photos:
Which I followed with more Trader Joe’s Chocolate Sunflower Seed Drops than I could count, and that’s saying something because I took Maths ALL THE WAY TO YEAR 11.
Before I go any further, hey Mum and Dad! Look behind you! A distraction!
Now that my parents aren’t looking, I can tell you that this photo shows exactly where I am right now, writing this post as I house-sit for them. I have everything a girl could need: Ugg boots scattered on the floor next to a bottle of mineral water, thermal socks on my feet, dogsy beneath my legs on the couch, and my laptop on my lap (oooh, in the photo I’m editing one of the photos in this very post! How very meta of me!).
After I took the above shot, I spent ten minutes snapping photos of my sleeping dog’s face from mere millimetres away. The photos made me laugh so hard I cried a little bit.
Question Time: What’s one of your Happy Lights this week?
