Things we love: Being thankful

wf 2

I’ve been feeling a little bit blurgh recently and hadn’t been able to figure out why.  And then it dawned on me, I’ve not taken the time to write a things I love post for a very long time, and to be honest, I hadn’t really taken any time out to think about all the fantastic things that have been happening recently.  I think we can really underestimate the positive effect that  consciously thinking about the things that make us happy and should be thankful for, can have on us.

I challenge you to sit down and have a think about them! Do it!

So here goes, here are the things I’ve loved recently:

  • Tracking down some Cro-doughs in London at Rinkoffs bakery in Whitechapel. Out of this world!


  • On the theme of eating, Breaking Bad themed burgers courtesy of Lucky Chip @ Sebright Arms.  As awesome as it sounds!

  • Stumbling across a field of wild-flowers in a London park… (see cover pic too!).

  • A trip to the countryside to visit old friends – just picking up from where we left off, exploring their new surroundings, and chatting and laughing late into the night.  And then waking up to a view like this.


  • A girls night out with cocktails and Peruvian food.


  • I know, I know, it’s all over Instagram … but I do love this time of year in London. I just can’t get over the colour of these leaves


  • And finally – the arrival of our good friends baby girl. She is just the most beautiful baby – and with such amazing parents!  I can’t wait to see her grow.
  • Oh yeah… and it’s only 2 weeks until we leave the chilly / snowy / rainy UK shores to spend Christmas down-under with family and friends and of course until I see Eva!!!! woooo!
