Happy Friday #ThePositivityWave 45

Welcome to today’s Happy Friday! My remedy against feeling down is to make a list of all the good things in my life. It can be anything. Really, anything. The smallest gesture from a stranger can change your day, if you open your eyes. Now, I am a pessimistic and I need daily reminders to look for the bright side. Maybe you are too, or maybe the state of our world is weighing on you. In any case, here’s your shot at some happy things!

You may have noticed my absence around here. There’s nothing positive about it so I won’t waste our time with explanations, but many things are changing, leaving me with the hardest time to find some good in my days. Still, I think I’ll go crazy and depressed if I don’t try…

  • I reached out to friends and they stood by me, and still do. Take that Brexit, miles, bad phone signal. Nothing can stand in the way of friendship.
  • Had the lovely surprise to find almond croissants at Pret à Manger, and it wasn’t half as bad as I thought!
  • Nicki made me smile and warmed my little sensitive heart. Thank you for checking on me.
  • My Kindle is now making a fuss at airports and I get to do the whole scanning thing like in the real life show about Customs. I know most people would be annoyed by this, but I just love it (and security is a must!)
  • My landlady suggested I try watching Line of Duty, and I really enjoy it. Cops are the good guys, right???
  • I baked lemon cookies and they’re not too bad. Well, I’m not a cookies master, for sure, but they’re edible.
  • I’m still surviving without an iPhone, although the old shit pretending to be my phone gets plenty of insults!!!
  • Being reunited with one’s physical TBR is amazing. I get so much comfort just looking at all the titles ready to help me face the day.

  1. I’ve not been around much in Feb either for one reason or another. But I hope March is going to be a lovely real-life and book month for you!

    You have plenty of friends online and I always look out for your posts – when I got back into blogging a year ago you were one of the very first people to make me feel welcome in the book blogging community.

    I quite like the sound of Lemon cookies!

    Happy Friday Meggy x

    Ah you haven’t seen Line of Duty!! It’s amazing, I binge watched about 4 series before the last new one came on tv. I hear another one is coming soon.
    Yum lemon cookies sound good.
    I find happiness looking at all the physical tbr books I have too. So many.

    My happiness waves include:
    New words from my pupil.
    A friend giving me her free tickets to a craft show.
    Enjoying a simple dinner of beans on toast , I forget how nice it is.
    Enjoying a really good book. ( Degrees of Guilt).
    Hope your weekend has many happy moments in it Meggy.


    1. ❤️ You are part of the reason I am able to post today.
      I binge-watched season 1 and 2 of Line of Duty on the iPlayer, and can’t wait to watch the rest! I yell at the screen a lot, haha!
      Looking at the books, I see friends 🙂

      I am amazed by the wonderful improvement with your pupil, you are magical!I have never eaten beans on toast!!
      OMG Degrees of Guilt!!! One of my all time favourite books!!!!

      Have a lovely weekend, Amanda. Thank you for shining when my days are grey xxx


  4. Sorry to hear that you have been having a tough time, Meggy. I hope things do get better for you soon x Glad to see that you still had some positivity though.


  5. It always feels good when we get in touch with old friends. I never used iphone! Too costly for me. Lemon cookies sounds good. I will ask for recipe when I’ll buy oven.
    This week I spent lot of time with my daughter. When I was checking themes, all of sudden she hit keys and it got activated. There now for once, I’m not to blame for changing themes too frequently. I won 2 books in giveaways.


    1. I was offered an iPhone years ago and couldn’t go back to other phones. I have to make do with an old Samsung at the moment and it’s terrible for my audiobook listening!
      Baking always makes me happy 🙂 I’ll definitely share the recipe!
      Mom/daughter time is precious! x
