I turned 40 last year.  It was great.  

I had plans to have a big lunch at a fancy restaurant, but my birthday is quite close to Christmas.

My Happiness

In the aftermath of Nick Kyrgios winning his fourth round match at Wimbledon all eyes were on the teenager.  He carries the sporting hopes of the nation now, and I love the fact that he's as much the medias darling for appearing "normal" as actually winning.  But while all the hype and hyberbole was being heaped on him something else was happening. A champion had lost, in an upset, to a newcomer.

Making my kids smile is making me smile. (This is not my kid. Cute though, huh?)

There's a lovely little blog link up happening at Bear Loves Dove.  It's all about what's making us smile right now, which is such a sweet idea that I wanted to be involved.  And when it came to thinking about things that were making me smile in July it was pretty simple.  My kids.  And spending great quality time with them.

As winter wraps her arms around us and squeezes tight it's hard not to be drawn to thoughts of warmer climates.  

Don't get me wrong, I actually quite like winter.  

I love jumpers and scarves and now that I have my fab jean + boot combo going I'm happy as a clam, whatever the weather.
