Can you believe it's only Tuesday? Me neither... *sigh*
Looking on the bright side, here's a few things that have made me do a happy dance so far this week:
1. My local council has finally started collecting cardboard with the recycling. I got rather over-excited about this (might have said something to Tom along the lines of "Now we don't need to get married- this is always going to be the best day of my life!") but I am genuinely pleased we no longer have to drive to the tip to recycle; it kind of defeated the point!
2. This incredibly inspiring story about a boy diagnosed with a 3% chance of survival against cancer at age 14, who is now a healthy 37 year old who has published a book about his experience- saying it was the happiest ten years of his life. I really want to read it because his story sounds so inspirational; but I expect I'll need a truckload of tissues on standby.

3. I've finally found the right owl ornament for our living room (this should be the headline story on BBC news this evening, if you want more information). I've been looking for a good few months after finding one in Dunelm Mill that was cheap but not particularly attractive (I'm very shallow when it comes to owls).
I spotted these bookends in the Laura Ashley sale on my way home today, for a pretty reasonable £13.50 reduced from £30, and after unscrewing the metal feet the two sides now fit together pretty much perfectly. Hurrah!
I think he looks rather cute next to my bargain globe on our record storage crates :)
