Three Things Thursday: 17 August 2017

My weekly exercise in gratitude – three things that are making me smile – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog [or Twitter account or Facebook page or diary or life in general] with happiness.

First, a new mug. To raise money to help Syrian refugees, participants in the Sixty Million Trebles project were invited to submit a photograph of one of their blankets or squares to be included on a mug that would be sold within the group. I sent a picture and waited to see if it would be included… and I’m delighted to say that it’s in the top middle above the logo… here’s my mug (from various angles) and a picture of the original square (although not the same picture as on the mug):

Second, all the courgettes. Tomorrow’s task is to make them into a big vat of soup for freezing.


and I haven’t harvested any today yet


Third, this

There’s a tiny bit of finishing required at the top, and there was slight delay in installation because the magnetic catches didn’t arrive when they were supposed to, but it’s all ready to be used now – hurrah!

So, what’s making you happy this week?
