Things That Made Me Happy This Week #16

1// Non-Fiction As I write this I'm about three-quarters of the way through my third non-fiction read in a row. It's an odd time for a flurry of non-fiction reading considering how much information I'm having to take in daily at work, but I'm going to make the most of it whilst I can. If you've got any recommendations then please make sure to throw them my way!

2// The Dead Duke, His Secret Wife and the Missing Corpse by Piu Marie Eatwell This book has kept me on my toes this week. It's the most entertaining non-fiction book I've read in a while and probably my favourite book from this month so I'll definitely be reviewing it soon.

3// Reading in the sun As soon as the sun arrives I try to spend as much time in the fresh (ish) air as possible. This week I've spent a couple of late afternoons reading on our balcony and it has been lovely. Chilly, but lovely.

4// Flow charts I've been creating some information packs at work for the tumour groups that I specialise in and that has involved creating some completely stunning flow charts. If you've never considered flow charts to be beautiful things then you really need to see mine. They are works of art and so very calming to create.

5// A chilled Friday evening in the pub After a failed run on Friday afternoon I decided the only thing for it was an evening spent chillaxing in the pub. Cider + good company = fun times.

What has made you happy this week?



  1. Natasha Walter's Living Dolls is non-fiction I reommend to anyone, it's about modern day feminism

  2. Sounds brill, just my cup of tea. Thanks for the recommendation!

  3. I can't wait to head out to just sit and read! It's definitely the season for that. Oh and I love flowcharts as well. I write code for work so have to make quite a few flowcharts as well. They are super fun!

  4. I don't think I mentioned it but I love your blog focus shifting more towards the happiness themes. I might even read The Happiness Project soon because I very much enjoyed Gretchen Rubin's habit-book! What made me happy recently is the fact that after a long reading slump I have now managed to finish two books. Reading in the sun - *thumbs up*

  5. They really are fun! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thinks so :D

  6. Thanks, Riv! That's so nice to hear.

    I'm not surprised that made you happy and I do hope they were good books. It certainly is nice to have the sun back, it's so conducive to reading happiness :D
