Flowers and my Mum really do brighten up the day – 100 days of happiness

Today marks the official start of British Summer Time, the start of lighter evenings, dreams of summer and the hope for a family BBQ that doesn’t include thick jumpers and raincoats. It’s the time of year where all the daffodils, the forget-me-nots, the pansies and the primroses are everywhere, the sweet fragrance of Spring is…

Tea and Cake makes everything great – 100 days of happiness

Like yesterday, happiness has been found in food, but this time tea and home-made cake at a lovely cosy tea room new to town with my Mum. Oh the joys of being home. Sometimes it amazes me what tea and good company can do to our mood. As soon as I saw the “Monsterberg” (Batten-berg)…

Canterbury on a crisp Sunday morning

This morning I was up bright and early, not quite fresh as a daisy but awake, the sun was shining and the time had come to walk to the train station and say goodbye to my best friend,  as it was such a beautiful morning I decided to wander back through the park and take a…

Introducing Purple Day – 100 days of happiness

Today marks one week until Purple Day, my reason to be happy today, the day that aims to raise awareness about epilepsy, to move away from the stigma that far too often comes with epilepsy, to help both children and adults feel like they are not alone, to help their friends and family understand and…

Travel Blues – 100 days of happiness

I’m happy that I’ve had so many opportunities to travel before and during university. From my point of view, university is really the best time to travel, a month holiday at Christmas, a month at Easter and 3-4 months in the Summer,  it really is the perfect time to go out there and explore. I…

Graduation Invitations, just another way to scare final year students.

To start with, obviously my reason to be happy today is because I just booked my graduation tickets and will be OFFICIALLY graduating 17th July in Canterbury Cathedral, (yes I know, very fancy!) BUT, whilst this is very exciting, it’s also very daunting, for the last four years of my life I have being working…

Food is good for the soul – 100 days of happiness

Over the last few days I’ve been finding the time to get back to baking and cooking some delicious foods. I’m made wholemeal bread with walnuts and mixed seeds, I’ve made a healthy version of flapjack that are yummy scrummy yet have no sugar and I’ve being playing around with salads. Since I started, even…

The power of words – 100 days of happiness

Sometimes words can do more than anything else in the world, they can wound, they can cure. Words bring smiles and tears. But sometimes words aren’t necessary. Today’s post is a set of photos that made me smile, the story is left up to you, use your imagination to see where they’ll take you, hopefully you’ll…

Getting my bake on! – 100 days of happiness

Today I awoke and the birds were chirping and the sun was shining, a great way to start the day. Since returning from my year abroad I’ve been trying and failing to keep Another Stepping Stone going despite being back in the UK with few travel opportunities so I’ve been reading a lot of other blogs…

Conquering travel blues and 100 days of happiness

Today I opened up my laptop and realised that I hadn’t written anything purely for the sake of writing in a very long time, I realised that I have many half written posts sitting around and it gave me the motivation to blow off the dust and get writing. Even though I’m in my final…
