So, I've been off doing everything but blogging over the past few days. To be honest I did very little - went out with my friends and got a bit silly (read: drunk) and browsed the charity shops with mum. It's easy to feel happy when i'm at home surrounded by my parent's house's big-windowed prettiness and sunshine but returning to Uni it's about finding each little break in the monotony of identi-kit flats and dirty-mauve walls. Luckily for me, my loan just came in, and if anyone is an argument against 'money can't buy you happiness' it's me, however, I didn't want to blow it on expensive nights out or clothes just yet! I had a really good day today and when I evaluated why, it was for the simplest little things: Finding Hyacinths were now in season, thrifting some enamel plates and just taking the time to take stock of my cupboard and fridge ingredients and plan meals and food-shop carefully. (I like to visit Aldi, Tesco and the Market to get the best of all-worlds.)
I also now know never to underestimate the zen of a clean room and a list of priorities.
