Small, happy and a winter walk!

So this weekend my sister and I decided to make our Dad happy (season of giving and all that) and go on a little winter's drive in the beautiful Peak District!

As you can tell, I've always been shy and retiring..

Sister selfie!

This was slightly, blurry but all the others had my sister with a frothy lip! Master photographer right here...

Would you look at this view?! I honestly feel like I'm in Frozen! Although my Olaf was at home in bed in plush form, not bouncing around making jokes! This was the view as far as the eye could see when we took a quick, impromptu drive up to Derbyshire this past Sunday. 

It's so nice to be home and to appreciate the beauty around us. It makes you feel in awe really to know that this beauty is completely natural #gettingdeephere

I love being in Altrincham but Sheffield offers this beauty that is so accessible. It's wonderful and it just made my mind so clear and calm to see this peaceful view. It was nice to just stand there, take it and have some time to reflect. 

This is such a weird time of year, between new year and Christmas where the days all run into each other but I must admit I love it! How are you spending them? Any fun NYE plans?!

I'm planning a Mexican fiesta at home with my sister and our boyfriends! Haha very traditional!

Small and happy (and thankful!)

Hello and happy weekend all!

Please bear with me... I may or may not have completely broken my laptop and because I'm no rich kid I have no other iPads, tablets or other means of updating I'm writing this on my phone!

As we Brits are more than aware because of Black Friday creeping into our favourite shops it was Thanksgiving this week. And while I am no Yank, I do love their tradition of being with family and thinking about being grateful for what we have. As inhabitants of countries where all our basic needs are met and we are becoming more and accepting and equal (for the most part) we have a lot to say thanks for.

Here are some things I am thankful for all year round:

1// My wonderful boyfriend, my rock, I don't know how I could get along without him. I mean I would because I'm a touch chica who don't need a man but still, it's lovely to have one as great as him.

2// My health. I feel like this is something we take for granted too much but this year has made me really really grateful to not have any health concerns or issues affecting my family or myself (touch wood).

3// My job. While I don't have a permanent role yet, I do need to be grateful that I can do what I love and get paid well (enough) for it.

4// My family and friends, I have some great circles of friends and I am so grateful for that. It's nice when you have fellow weirdos or people who get over excited about the  things as you!  In terms of my family, my parents have been through a bit of a time the last few years and I think by them not being together everyone is now closer than ever, and I never thought we'd reach this point.

5// My passions in life. This is a weird one but I was thinking about how lucky I am to be in a day and age where I can read anything I want, learn anything I want through the internet and can indulge anything I want to discover or experience through the many brilliant opportunities this world presents us. For a bookworm who loves travelling and cooking and learning about how other people live their lives the world of social media and the internet (as well as wonderful libraries) service those needs beautifully! I guess it's the teacher in me that is thankful that I always have an opportunity to learn and to grow and to develop.

I'm thankful that I'm still finding new things to be thankful for all the time.

How about you? Did you bag any Black Friday bargains?! Have you been thinking about what you're thankful for too?
