Happy Post #5

Goodness, I just realised I haven't done of these posts in almost two months! I think it's high time for another wee list (yeah, practising my Scottish.....) of positive things. Quite a lot has changed since the last time I wrote an appreciative post, so perhaps the content will be a bit different.... I genuinely don't know yet as I'm literally planning to come up with things as I write! What an organised blogger, eh?

Okay, here we go. These are the things I've been feeling appreciative over lately:

- The lovely autumn that Scotland is having. One of my more recent posts was all about autumn, so I think it's fair to say that I'm a big fan of the season. September is soon over and the weather in Scotland so far has been absolutely lovely, with many sunny days and temperatures around 15 degrees celsius. To be honest, I do look forward to more colder weather, but I'm still really glad September has been so lovely.

- Shortbread, oatcakes, scones, crumpets, and the likes. Since moving to the UK I've been taking advantage of the fact that I can buy delicious treats like the ones mentioned pretty much everywhere. For all you Britons this is probably commonplace, but for me it's still a bit exciting. Back in Sweden I used to bake scones regularly but so far I haven't got around to baking anything over here, so I'm glad I can enjoy them anyway! I love having any of these treats with some butter and jam, together with a nice cup of tea. It's the perfect afternoon snack.

- Interesting lectures and engaging lecturers. Even though I've only had one week of proper lectures I feel that I've picked the right path, which is such a nice feeling. So far I've also been lucky enough to have mostly very inspiring lecturers, so I'm hoping that will continue! Although with so many guest lecturers it's not very likely, but at least the main lecturer for English Lit is amazing.

- My king sized bed. My whole life I've slept in a 90 one so at first I didn't know what to do with all the extra space, but I've found that it's really quite nice to have a larger bed all to myself. All that extra space is great!

- Finding a club that feels 100 % right. I've been trying out different clubs to find the ones I like the most and last Tuesday I went to a meeting with the Creative Writing club. I had been rather unsure about it before going but it turned out to be so much fun. Moreover, I think it'll definitely help me with my perpetual writer's block. I'm excited for the meetings to come!

Alright, I think that's it for now. Tell me, what has made you happy lately?
