Day 7/100 of Summer Happy

Today has been filled with sun, colouring, ice cream, walking in the park and even more sun 🙂WP_20150607_002

In case you hadn’t guessed I love spending time outside in the sun. It makes me happy almost immediately and with
my new found hobby of colouring I can do two things at once that make me happy. What’s not to like? Adult colouring has taken off recently, with many people now spending a lot of money on colouring books and expensive pens. For me, colouring is a way of staying calm and releasing stress. It is something I can do almost regardless of my pain levels which makes it very useful on bad pain days. It is also teaching me about patience, of which I have very little! It is something I am working on and hope to improve over the next few months. Here is a photo of my latest piece, I have spent roughly 2 hours on this already and it probably still has at least another hour or so until it is complete.

This afternoon I went for a walk to the park with my boyfriend which I always enjoy. But today was extra special as I packed us a surprise picnic and we sat on the grass, ate lunch and ice cream too. We must have spent over an hour enjoying the sunshine and as soon as I got home I went straight out in the garden to soak up yet more sun!

I’ve had a wonderful weekend and can’t believe I am at the end of week 1 of my 100 happy days of summer posts. This summer is going to fly by but I know I am going to meet some amazing people, create lasting memories and learn more about myself and those around me. I am excited 🙂

P.S. Always remember – You are amazing!
