Hi and welcome to my very first Positivity Wave post! Today is the first day of a whole week off work, and so the perfect time to join Meggy’s Positivity Wave for the first time! Every week Meggy creates a list of the little things in life that have made her happy, be sure to check out this week’s list here on Chocolate’n’Waffles.
And here are the things that made me happy this week:
Counting down to my holiday!!
Receiving a blog tour book much earlier than expected, diving right in and loving the story. When signing up for blog tours I’m always a bit anxious that I won’t enjoy the book, so every time I do, I’m delighted.
Finally having a finished garden and having nice weather to boot: I spent most of last weekend reading by the pond, and I hope to be doing the same this weekend. Heaven!
The painting works are done on the ground floor of our home, being able to shower in a clean bathroom again is absolute bliss!
Enjoying an impromptu Chinese take-away dinner with my parents.
Receiving my FairyLoot box, earlier than expected and with the most beautiful book ever and lush goodies to boot.
Scheming and plotting with Danielle (@book_obsessed1) for #Orentober.
Announcing #Orentober and basking in everyone’s enthusiasm and Orenda love, and in Karen’s appreciation.
Chatting with my bookish friends on Twitter, who somehow always manage to make me laugh and cheer me up.
Feeling like I’m on the mend and having enough energy to take a long walk with the hubby.
Getting book post from the fabulous Eva! She says this may very well be her book of the year (read all about that here), so I’m going in with A LOT OF expectations!
Bright yellow flowers on my courgette plant (and hopefully tasty courgettes to come)
Hope you had a good week too, my lovelies! What made you happy this week? Tell me below, misery might like company, but positivity LOVES company 😉😘
Such a cool post! <3
That first book is on my list too. Happy to hear you are enjoying it! It's always a plus when it comes to tour books, haha 😀
Lately i'm into ramen & grilled chicken so whenever i feel fancy to get take away, i get these. I used to be obsessed with Chinese food, but the places i liked to get it from don't deliver to where i live or don't deliver at all. (I'm not known to go and collect take away in person, lol 😀 )
Thanks Norrie ? I’m not one to go and collect food either, I send the hubby ?
I am so excited to read The Whisper Man, too! Kelly! You have so many wonderful things to celebrate this week! I hope you enjoy your vacation! I would love to see pictures of your garden! ♥️
Thanks Jennifer ? I’ll include some pics next time ?
Yay you’ve joined in! Sounds like a lovely week full of happy moments! ?
Yes! Finally! It really was and I should join in more often!
Sounds like a fab week ❤️
It was ? Have a great weekend Zoé, looking forward to finding out which books you chucked and which I have to convince you chuck this week ?
Oh you joined as well! I always love these posts. <3 I can't wait for #Orentober, I need to get a copy of The Whisper Man ASAP and I didn't know courgette plant flowers were so similar to pumpkin ones! Have a wonderful weekend. xx
Thanks Yvo ? I always love the Wave too, I’m so happy that I finally got around to joining in! My pumpkins aren’t flowering yet, so I wouldn’t know ?
Have a great weekend too! x
Yay! So great to see you join in on the positivity wave, Meggy’s brilliant and inspired brainchild. Your week was fabulous?
Oh, I have the same fears about blog tours and am always so happy when it turns out to be an enjoyable read. And, we were both persuaded by the amazing Eva to add The Whisper Man to our shelves.
Thanks Jonetta ? I had been thinking of joining in for a while but I never got around to it so I’m very happy to have done so today! I did have a pretty good week ? Blog tours are always a bit stressful aren’t they. And Eva is way too persuasive ?
Oh my!!!! I AM SO HAPPY I AM TEARING UP! Another wave sending positivity in the world, and not any wave! A wave from a fabulous and lovely lady I love very much!!!!!!! Thank you for getting on board!!!!
Okay, I’ll stop with the exclamation marks… Or not!!!!! 😀
I miss counting days until the holidays! I want to get back to work so I can do it again, haha!
I totally get you on blog tours, that’s why now I try to only choose books from publishers/publicists I’ve been working with and who know my tastes.
My bathroom is sacred, I love taking care of my skin so I need a nice place to relax and forget about social media, book!, and every day problems.
I can’t have a day when I don’t talk to my Twitter friends <3 I need you, guys!
What a fabulous post, thank you, darling! xx
There can never be enough exclamation marks!!!! ? Thank you Meggy ?
