High 5 4 Friday

Another week is (almost) over. I don't know when time started zipping by so fast. One minute you're a 16 year old kid just outta school, next your a 30 something woman with kid, job, responsibilities. Wow I'm feeling really old now.  It's got me thinking though.  We look forward to things. How many times have you said or thought 'I can't wait for the weekend' when it's only Monday morning, or 'roll on summer' on a frosty, cold January morning. My point is we wish our lives away. Take a moment today, not to wish for another time in the future but to enjoy a moment of today. Be thankful for something that's happening right now. Open your eyes, take a deep breath in and enjoy today. 

In the spirit of enjoying the moment lets take a look at 5 little things that have made me happy in the past week.

1.  Spotting 5 magpies on my morning run. I'm not sure why this made me smile but I just love spotting magpies. I've never seen more than 3 together before so I was super excited to spot 5.

One for sorrow
Two for joy
Three for a girl
Four for a boy
Five for silver
Six for gold
Seven for a secret
Never to be told

Does this mean I'm going to come into some money? So glad I put my Euromillions lottery ticket on! :D
I tried to capture a shot of them but they sadly flew away before I could get all 5 in shot.

2. Watching Mini Greenoid sleep. Ok ok I know this makes me sound like a creepy mum but really, who doesn't like to see their children peacefully fast asleep? This happened the night after I'd been shopping to buy Mini Greenoid some new pants. If you have kids you'll know what I mean what I say 'he's just suddenly grown out of all his pants' I had to buy age 11. Age 11!!! He's only 9 but he's suddenly shot up. Age 11!! He was a teeny tiny baby what seems like only yesterday. He'll be leaving home before I know it. I just needed to watch him and store it in my memory.

3. The smell of bacon. I'm a veggie but hey, the smell of bacon is still pretty amazing.  

4. The sunrise this morning. I think I've moaned (me? Moan? Surely not) about the end of summer on here enough. One thing I love about Fall and Winter are the beautiful sunrises I see when I open my bedroom curtains. It's a view I occasionally take for granted but every now and then I realise how lucky I am to look out of my window and see such beauty.

5. I think I'm finally embracing the start of a new season as another thing I've loved this week is shopping for a new Fall/Winter coat.  I've shopped online. I've shopped in real life. (I know online is real life but that's just what I call it when I visit an actual shop as opposed to the internet version of a shop)
I need something showerproof with a hood.  So far I've found these three beauties...

Superdry Bridge Coat £125 from Very This one hasn't got a hood but I think I'm kinda in love with it.
