Happy Day 7: Hot Chocolate

#100HappyDays Day 7: Real hot chocolate
I went round to a friends for dinner - she made us all pease pudding, roast potatoes and quinoa burgers and gravy. To finish up one of the girls made us hot chocolate - real dark chocolate melted in a pan with coconut and almond milk topped with vegan marshmallows. We snuggled up on the sofa with the dog and watched Dark Crystal. Perfect.

Happy Day 6: Ball pits

#100HappyDays Day 6: Ball pit
There is a jive class starting in October and we happened to walk past the place today. As we were trying to figure out if it was the right place, a (very good looking) man invited us inside to look around. Yes, it was the right place, a baptist church, but they are hosting a childrens camp at the moment, so the baptismal font is currently a ball pit, the downstairs has a pirate ship in it and the upstairs has an art exhibition. He showed us round the hall we'd be using too, it was really lovely of him. You have no idea how tempted I was to climb into that ball pit!

The church is about 150 years old, though it recently got a glass frontage, and the hall we'll be dancing in is from 1914, though a lot of the fixtures are 1950s at a guess. That is being renovated at the moment as well, but we got to have a good look around.

Baptist churches are generally quite plain.... though I really like the addition of the ball pit!

We have wild rabbits on the grounds at work, they rarely come out when there are people around.

Happy Day 4: Interesting Graffiti

#100HappyDays: Day 4
I see interesting graffiti around the place - I don't know what this means but it made me think about how we are all interconnected, which is always a lovely thing to contemplate.

Day 8: No Shampoo
Just a little update: My hair is adapting pretty well, it doesn't feel quite the same as shampoo but it is still pretty soft and it doesn't smell of vinegar at all, which surprises me. I've been experimenting a bit with adding some cinnamon or ginger extract to the cider vinegar, and while my hair smelled divine it became much more greasy, so I quickly opted for just bicarb of soda and apple cider vinegar on their own. I was thinking that I may use the extracts in coconut oil to make moisturiser and then I'd still smell yummy, I'll let you know how that works out.

Happy Day 3: Coffee Doodles

#100HappyDays: Day 3
I love good coffee, especially when someone has doodled in it.
