Well, here we are at week fifty already just two more to go in this year of searching for the small things in life that make us happy and that make us smile. My four happies from the last week are..........
1. Birds - (again) - on Sunday we visited the Blackbrook Zoological Park to see how they were getting on since our last visit as there was talk a while ago about them having to close due to lack of funds. Things had changed quite a bit some for the better and others not but all in all we had a great morning taking photos of some of the super birds in their collections. At present they are charging just 99p per person for entry and you do see lots for your money.
2. Meerkats - also at Blackbrook - so cute and always guaranteed to make you smile!
3. Festive Windows and Lights - three seasonal windows I've seen over the last week. The one on the left in Getliffe's Yard in Leek, the top right in Ashover, Derbyshire and the bottom one in Shrewsbury. Below left a huge stag in Shrewsbury town centre, I bet it looks wonderful in the dark and the festive lights at Ashbourne.
4. Pomanders - I always enjoy making them - the ones in my photo need finishing off. I love the seasonal smells of the oranges and cloves, it always seems like Christmas is on the way when I start pressing the cloves into the orange skin and that wonderful scent wafts under my nose and coats my finger tips.
Linking up with Little Birdie where '52 weeks of Happy' started. Each week you find just four things that have made you happy to share.
