Happy Day 77: In Bloom

#100HappyDays Day 77: The Christmas cactus has suddenly flowered over the last few days. We thought we might have killed it, but it definitely looks alive now.

In other news, I was at work a full day today - my ankle is a bit twingey and is still a little swollen but I've walked around on it all day so I think that's healing up fine. I also had my first BSL exam - my mock last week went quite well but I'm pretty nervous about today. We get our results back next week, I hope I passed!

Happy Day 74: Hunkering Down

#100HappyDays Day 74: I have had a bit of a cold the last few days, nothing terrible, and also the first cold I've had in quite a while, and I've been just getting over that and I made plans to go round to a friends for dinner... but on the way home I twisted my ankle. Boooo! So I've got it elevated with some frozen veg wrapped in a towel on it, Middle B gave me a tubigrip and I think I'm going to hunker down in bed for the evening and snuggle up with tea and a book. Nice.

Happy Day 73: Chestnut Icecream

#100HappyDays Day 73: I am totally stuffed from Sunday Dinner! Em made a chicken bhuna with a side of mushroom and potato curry and peas and tomato curry. I made fruit salad with chestnut ice cream, taken from a recipe in How to Be a Domestic Goddess. We watched the Strictly Come Dancing dance off and then followed up with Wonders of the Monsoon with Colin Salmon. Perfect Sunday night relaxing.
