Five Happy Thoughts

A positive mind is one aspect of my life I'm really trying to work on, I mean most things are good but I'm quite the Debbie Downer & always put a negative spin on everything. I've definitely made more of a conscious effort to think in a positive way & often correct myself for having such a gloomy outlook on life.

01. The vets saving little Lulu pugs eye. Lulu developed a Corneal Ulcer out of nowhere which deteriorated very quickly. I had to rush her over to a specialists for them to do an emergency operation, it was all very scary but I am so thankful for the wonderful vets who have done an amazing job.

02. Re-designing my blog. I've fallen back in love with blogging this week! Who knew a new layout could really get my inspiration flowing again?

03. A week at home with the Pugs. As Lulu has been quite poorly & couldn't really be left unattended incase she caused further damage to her eye I took some time off work & it has been SO nice. I love my home a lot but I don't get to spend much time here with work & family commitments I often feel like I never stop.

04. Making plans. May is getting booked up fast! I can't believe how many things are going on, I already have two London trips planned, plus a couple of events in Liverpool & it's a month filled of birthdays, so lots of celebrations all round.

05. Buying my first bunch of Peonies. Oh yeah it's Peony season again & I'm not letting it escape from me without buying at least one bouquet a week. I just can't get enough of those pretty blooms.

Let me know your happy thoughts!

  1. I'm a bit of a Debbie Downer too (it's something I've pledged to work on this year), so I have the idea of this post. :)

    I'm glad to hear that the vets were able to help your dog's eye. Poor thing! I hope she recovers quickly!

  2. Yep, girl. I bought some peonies last week too. They're so beautiful and have been cheering me up for the last few days. What is it about flowers that make you feel so damn guuuurd?!

    Love your new layout too. Seriously, sometimes a little shake up is all you need to get the love flowin'. I need to get a new layout for my blog too...I'm bored of it currently.

  3. I´m so happy your pug is feeling better. Thanks for letting me know its peony season, if never actually bought any, I won't let it slip away this year.

  4. Love these types of posts Laura! So happy you've fallen back in love with blogging so I can stalk all your posts!



  5. You have such a lovely blog, I had to go ahead & follow you on everything! I recently decided to give my blog a little redesign too and it's amazing the difference it makes in how much more you want to throw yourself into blogging being completely happy with the way everything looks! My nan bought me a Peonie bush last year and they're just starting to bloom in my garden, peonies are a bloggers best friend! Lovely post :-)
