Much like the last happy things, this 5 Happy Things is a bit delayed. So, again. Apologies. But, with the Christmas holidays, I should get back on track. Or at least that’s the plan anyway!
With the run-up to the festive season getting well on its way, there have been lots of Christmassy things to plan. (And presents to buy!). So, here’s five things from November that have put a smile on my face…
I know that at this time of year almost every blogger has some kind of 2017 in review post. This isn’t going to be the first, and it’s certainly not going to be the last. In fact, it’s not even the last post I’m doing on this. I’ve hopefully (if the Christmas break was productive enough) a few posts including favorite bloggers from the year, looking back on the year’s highlights and of course an update on the aims goals I posted at the beginning of the year.

And this particular Friday had all three!
So, if you fancy a read of what we got up to or even just a few cheeky cocktail recipes then continue on reading below…

So on that note, here are a selection of little and not so little things that have made me happy during November; View Post
I don’t talk a great amount about my work on here, mostly as, I don’t really feel the need to. But, I will mention that whenever we hit a certain team target work will take us on a night out somewhere for a bit of team bonding.
