Almost 10 Happy days in one day

There has been a new trend on Faceache / Twitter lately of #100happydays. Meaning for 100 days you record on social media your best moment of the day. It can be a precious moment, a positive statement someone told you, a laughable happening or just a plan ole wonderful thing. Some people even take pictures of their dinner, coz its ‘special’. I on the other hand eat pretty well most of the time and found the food tag a bit lame.

I have been lucky enough to have something to shout about every day for the last 10 days. It has further compounded how lucky I am these days to have such a wonderful life. And not only is it wonderful, it’s all my own doing. I am carving out the new me, the new relationship, the new business I have always wanted with style, fervour and finesse.

I am on day 11 (today) of my #100happydays and yesterday was a day when I could have named so many things as that one defining moment of happiness. It was an awesome day on many levels and I felt the need to record it anyway, in my own way, so that on lesser splendid days I can look back and remind myself I had one day with almost #10happydaysinone


  • The awesomely scrumptious courgette, chilli, chorizo and sweet potato soup I made by 9:30am. Not worthan actual hash tag but certainly worth a mention here. It had me pleased as punch for a mornings effort. On a Saturday no less! I know how to rock a weekend!

  • My first festival review article for @festivalsforall was published. To be fair I did use this as my #day10 #100happydays but it’s important as this happened at 10:30 in the morning and set the hyper excited dead chuffed happy place I was in for the rest of the day

  • Working with my awesome Wickerman crew on the first stage of painting. A beautiful sunny day, we got so much more done than expected. The mood was high, the music going and the banter flowing. Makes me proud every time

  • The sheer and splendid delight of spending time with a besto, seeing the bright lights back in her eyes, the happiness in everything she does because she is now the proud new owner of a new creative business and self employed freedom. Together we are building ourselves an inspiration-nation.

  • The hilarious admiration from unwanted admirers in the short visit we took in the pub, as a reward for a hard day’s work. Included the line “Dumfries is a much better place for you being in it” and a whispered “you’re gorgeous.” Got to take those compliments where you get them!!!

  • Pint of lager and lime in the shower? Think I will thank you very much. Steaming hot hot hot spray soothing my aching 50 year old back and a celebratory swallow. Perfect cleansing moment.

  • Barry Ashworth (Dub Pistols) retweeting my festival article!!!! Was possibly the second wave of pride for my writing. Followed up by a barrage of internet interest, retweets, emails of congratulations and finally I broke into bursts of joyful, ecstatic tears.

  • Finally, the delight of knowing I had the King Size bed all to myself that night. A rare occasion, so it filled me with delight and anticipation. A handful of woozy painkillers for my back and an early night as my glad reward for such an incredible day. A little unsure how I was meant to sleep with such a huge grin on my face.
I am eternally thankful for the life I lead. I AM the Leading Lady of my Wonderful Life.
