Can you be happy for 100 days in a row? The question I’m going to attempt to answer for the next 100 days!

Day 79 – Redundancy Pay!

Redundancy Pay

Thank bejizzle!!! My redundancy money has finally come through!! Oh hallelujah! Seriously this could not have come at a better time! I was getting worried for a moment because I saw all my ex employees receiving theirs and I hadn’t even heard back from the insolvency company yet. Well needless to say 98% of it has gone into paying bills and credit, but hey, its now a huge weight off my shoulders! Thank you insolvency company for being as quick as you could be! πŸ™‚Β 

Day 78 – Oscar Watching TV

Boston Terrier Watching TV

This was absolutely hilarious! I didn’t think dogs actually did this!! I just thought it was a Disney thing in 101 Dalmatians. However, I kid you not, Oscar our Boston Terrier puppy sat there and watched TV with me for a good 45 minutes!! I even have a video of it, but am way too lazy at this time of night to post it. I wonder what he found so facisnating. The first thing we watched together today while I ate was a fat man climbing a hill. The second thing was a Grand Designs programme about a couple that bought an immense house in Β the booneylands of France. Then of course we fell asleep together for 20 mins (watching the shows) and then went out to play fetch, which he recently learned πŸ˜€ Does anyone else’s dog watch TV as well? And if so, does he/she have a favourite programme? πŸ˜€Β 

Day 77 – Tupla, The Chocolate Bar…Mmm

Tupla

Welcome. Say Hello to Tupla. The worlds most delicious chocolate bar.. ever. With a delicious soft middle with light nuts coating the outside and then further dipped in chocolate. Mmmmmmmmmm! I am so addicted to these. My sister and I always have to sneakily either steal some from one another, get our mom to bring us a bag full, or then fly to Finland ourselves just to stock up on them. We even have a thing where we go “Isosisko verot” or “Pikkuveli verot”, which basically means we are taxing each other for being each others siblings. And the price of that tax? A bite of Tupla! Just had another one today from my dwindling supply and my lord… ahhh, they are just SO DAMN GOOD! I HAVE to start importing these to the UK. These and Lonkero (tell you about those later).. I’d be a millionaire. Where do I learn the import trade from I wonder? Thank heavens I’m going back to Finland this Friday to celebrate Summer solstice and for my fix of all things Finnish! ❀

Day 76 – First Wives Club

First Wives ClubI’ve probably seen this movie 35 times already and I still love it! Was playing on TV today whilst hungover and half way to death and I mean, really, it’s just such a great movie! Put Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, Diane Keaton, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Maggie Smith all together and you get pure genius! This movie has even made it into my everyday “inside joke” life with a few of my best friends. Really brought back memories and good times πŸ˜€ I miss Goldie and her comical ways πŸ˜› Time for bed though and cuddle time with Oscar. And remember guys… “Don’t get mad, get everything!” πŸ˜›

 

 

Day 75 – World Naked Bike Ride (London)

London Naked Bike Ride 2014 What could be a better way to spend a saturday than to watch French Baguettes, Spanish Chorizo, a bit of Swedish Meat Balls, British Bangers, and German Wurst ride on by in the middle of London in Piccadilly Circus? (Or should I say Pick-a-D*** Circus today) πŸ˜€ In case you didn’t know, today was World Naked Bike Ride Day today in London. Meaning people got together to say no to fossil fuels, and yes to bikes πŸ™‚ Was such a great atmosphere! Music, laughter, waves, smiles, just all around a good fun time, whilst supporting a very important cause in this world of ours! Well, whatever you feel about it… It made me smile and laugh and want to do it myself in the future! πŸ˜€ And hey, why not admire what God created as well πŸ˜‰

Day 74 – Gnold

Gnold

Ok, so I come home and think to myself when I get to the kitchen table “ouuhhh shiiinnyyy! Is it a real gold coin?? What is it??” Β And when I finally get close enough to inspect it – I burst out laughing. I mean.. what the heck? WHAT is this coin?! How did it get to our house and onto our dinner table?! Lol!! For those of short sight it says “Gnomeland Devonia Gnold”. I do remember saying I wanted to win the lottery today at work, but I think the universe somehow misheard me. Lol. Seriously I still cant stop laughing every time I look at that coin. WHERE did it come from?! Gnold from Gnomeland?? Really? I somehow have a feeling my sister has been to our house and is filming me as we speak watching me inspecting this coin. LOL! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Day 72 – 30 Rock

30 Rock

AfterΒ I heard about Tracy Morgan’s accident I started to slowly watch some clips of 30 Rock online again. And my God… Did I forget how hilarious it really was?! Oh Tina you comedy genius you! I still don’t rememberΒ what show I actually really literally burst out laughing at random parts as much as I did watching 30 Rock. Definitely have to re-watch this show at some point! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Wait, whats that I hear. It’s almost like a faint whisper in my ear.. something about balls.. balls, balls… balls-balls-balls? And..and… muffins? What was that.. muffin tops? Are all that? .. whole grain, low fat! ❀ Hmm… must be my mind going a bit kookoo.

Day 71 – Oscar’s New Collar

Boston Terrier Bone Collar

Our wee baby Boston Terrier, Oscar, Β is now officially at that awkward stage where he doesn’t fit an XS harness, but isn’t big enough for a S harness… so what did I do? I bought him a new collar! It’s huge as well, but its so cute and finally makes him look like a boy! Its a leather collar with little bones all over it, so cute! And yes, of course I got him a harness as well πŸ˜› He’ll grow into it πŸ˜€ Next thing we need to get him used to is a winter coat, lol!Β 

Day 70 – Be Who You Are

Be Who You Are

Theres a reason I loved reading Dr. Seuss as a kid. You never really realise how much wisdom those books held in them, until later in life. This popped up today and It really couldn’t have come at a better time or come on a better day πŸ™‚ Reminded me that all is good and well πŸ™‚ We could all do with a bit more of Dr. Seuss in our lives.Β 

Day 69 – Pets at Home

Pets At Home Camden

Another day, sunny, fun, and relaxed! Spent the day with our baby Boston Terrier puppy, Oscar. Got him weighed again (this time with his bag) at Pets at Home in Camden, and in total it was still under 5 kg so I’m sure we should get good to go for our summer trip to Finland. I must say we really got so lucky in the location we chose to live in! Parks everywhere, pet stores, vets, etc. Love it! The big boy is growing so fast he’s already outgrown his first harness! So got him a new one and a new cute collar. Pics to follow soon πŸ˜› Then spent the day lounging under the sun in our park. Such a great Sunday! Do we haaaave to go back to work tomorrow? Do we? I’d love to work for Pets at Home (for their marketing department that is), because then at least I’m sure I could take our Oscar to work with me πŸ˜€ Pets at Home.. ya hiring? πŸ˜€Β
