Continental Drift July Linkup and What Makes Me Happy

What makes me happy?  At the moment the sunshine makes me happy.  We are having a bit of a heatwave in the UK currently and social lives are buzzing alongside the bees.  This weekend we are going to a garden party in Surrey with a former colleague of mine and on Sunday we have a trip to London planned with a former army colleague of the hubster.  Trying to determine what to wear to look smart in the sunshine for a garden party has been a challenge.  I decided on cropped cotton pants, a cotton blouse, sandals, hat and strawbag.   

I have bought myself a new camera here for the first time in 6 years and that is making me happy.  The price didn’t by the way.  However I am enjoying playing with the controls, learning about the buttons and studying the results.  I’m even bringing hubster along in the hobby, as you know from previous posts, and this gives us plenty to talk about. 

That is something else that makes me happy. We are not a couple that sit in silence if we are out for a drink.  There is plenty to say.  I think blogging helps that and is a joint hobby.  My old blog used to contain him as the subject as some of you know! That really have us plenty to talk about I can tell you!

What has made me unhappy is that the fridge freezer broke on Friday and we will have to wait until Tuesday for a new one.  In this heat.  90f.

And the heat.  That's not making me happy because we don't have air con in our homes in the UK so unless we are at work (boo) we can't escape it.

  1. We are currently having an atrocious heat wave, too! I can’t take it! We only have small window air conditioning units, which is better than nothing I suppose. I am just staying inside as the heat indexes this week are well exceeding 100 degrees F (38 degrees C, I believe is the correct conversion). I hope you enjoy your weekend party and your fun new camera and stay cool in the process!


  2. Happy days huh? The weather is glorious isn't it? I hope you enjoyed the party and are getting along with the camera ok xx

  3. Oh the heatwave, 29 feels like 31 today! Hope you had a lovely garden party, looking so trendy in your well put together outfit. Looking forward to seeing what you have to say about your new camera. Hugs, x.
