I'm coming out, I want the world to know - [Day 14]

Posted by Carla Boyd on Saturday, October 4, 2014 In : 100 Happy Days 
So I decided I'll do yesterday today and then do a joint day 15 and 16 post tomorrow because I'm cool like that. ;) 

The highlight of day 14 of my #100HappyDays challenge was a lovely evening with Owen and Kirsty that was followed by a night out in Heaven, a gay club in London. 



I enjoy going out in gay bars/clubs as it's quite a different experience to a "regular" club. A mixture of new dance music and older cheesy songs makes for a great night of dancing, singing, and general fun.

Making time for me - [Day 13]

Posted by Carla Boyd on Friday, October 3, 2014 In : 100 Happy Days 
So I didn't write yesterday because I was busy taking care of myself. It was day 13 of my #100HappyDays challenge and I decided to spend some time on myself. 

My laptop stayed off as I cleaned my flat, put away my clothes and had some me time. I dyed my hair, did a face mask, and had a long hot shower. 



Every once in a while that kind of day is needed. I will write today's day tomorrow as I'm out clubbing tonight! Take care, my dears!

Just gotta be strong - [Day 12]

Posted by Carla Boyd on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 In : 100 Happy Days 
It's Day 12 of my #100HappyDays challenge and it wasn't a great day. I am not going to go into detail as to why and it doesn't really matter. But what this challenge does is that it makes you try and find something happy to talk about so I'm having a go.

Today I discovered Will Heard. I really love his voice!! There's a song I've been hearing at work over and over again for weeks but it wasn't until today that I looked him up. There's nothing quite like a great voice and an acoustic guitar. ^_...

It's not who you are underneath... - [Day 11]

So today was day 11 of #100HappyDays and it was another Tuesday. Now we already established I'm not particularly fond of Tuesdays and to be honest, it wasn't the most exciting day. But the highlight of my day was a short trip to Starbucks. 

Now for those of you unfamiliar with how Starbucks works, this is what happens: You order your coffee and pay for it, you give them your name, they put your name on the cup and pass it on to a barista, you s...

Sweet like chocolate, you bring me so much joy - [Day 10]

Posted by Carla Boyd on Monday, September 29, 2014 In : 100 Happy Days 
It's day 10 of my #100HappyDays challenge and today was "one of those days". Mondays aren't exactly the most fun day of the week in general but today specifically wasn't great. It wasn't terrible, it just wasn't very "happy". 

So what does one do when one doesn't feel very happy? Well, for me, like many people, there's one lovely, sweet, tasty thing that makes life momentarily better. What's that, you ask? Chocolate of course! 



Of course chocolate doesn't make EVERYTHING better. But if you're j...

We're all stories, in the end. Just make it a good one. - [Day 9]

Posted by Carla Boyd on Sunday, September 28, 2014 In : 100 Happy Days 
Day 9 of #100HappyDays - It's been a long day that wasn't quite long enough. Lazy Sundays are lovely on the one hand but on the other you always feel like you didn't accomplish anything... 

But in any case, the highlight of my day was catching up on the new episode of Doctor Who! I love the show. I know some people think of it as either a show just for children or a very geeky show. But I find Doctor Who teaches a lot about relationships, human interaction, love, war, peace, and more. 



I've lau...

As we grow up, we realise... - [Day 8]

Posted by Carla Boyd on Sunday, September 28, 2014 In : 100 Happy Days 
... It is less important to have lots of friends, and more important to have real ones. 

So I'm late with this as I was out late but I shall simply do tomorrow now and today this evening.

On day 8 of my #100HappyDays challenge, realising what I was happy about was easy: My friends! Over the years, I have managed to sneak into and become an official part of a group of friends who have known each other for years and years. They are the funniest, weirdest, craziest, kindest, loveliest, bestest of...

Maybe in distance but never in heart - [Day 7]

Posted by Carla Boyd on Friday, September 26, 2014 In : 100 Happy Days 
I have 7 minutes to write and post this blog on time so I better make this a quick one. It's day 7 of #100HappyDays!

Today was a bit of a weird one. Good weird, but weird. I won't give much more details than that but looking back there was one person who yet again made today happy. The same person who manages to make every day happy.  



Even when she is in a terrible mood and having a go at me about things; even when she drives me crazy and makes me want to shout at her; even when I ignore all h...

You poked my heart... - [Day 6]

Posted by Carla Boyd on Thursday, September 25, 2014 In : 100 Happy Days 
I am even more tired than I was yesterday so this one will be short and sweet. Literally!

We are on day 6 of #100HappyDays! My day was fairly mediocre and I was unsure what to blog about until I came across an article on BuzzFeed about the below video... 

WARNING: The cuteness is strong with this one. A lot of "awwwww"'s will be exclaimed during the watching of this video.
 


I love children. You learn a lot about humans by watching children interact. What I love the most about this whole scenari...

The Peacock & Gamble Podcast - [Day 5]

Posted by Carla Boyd on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 In : 100 Happy Days 
I'm tired to the point of my eyes tearing up but I'm determined to not miss a day of the #100HappyDays challenge! But today will be a short one...

I had a thought about what made me happy today and I realised there is one thing that has continuously brought a smile to my face for years now. First, the Ray Peacock podcast, and then the Peacock and Gamble podcast! While neither podcasts are still being made, I have been listening to them over and over again these past few years and they never fa...
