#52weeksofhappiness-Week 43

 Hello there! How are you? First of all I must apologise for the lack of a blogpost on Tuesday. I've had this blog for about 10 months now, and I think this is the first time I have ever missed a post, without the reason being that I've gone on holiday or something. This week just got overly busy, and I didn't want to send out a half-hearted and rushed second part to my A-Z posts, so decided I'd leave it until next week. (I know you can't wait to see the other letters).
 Now, onto what's happened this week! Kirstie came up from London last Saturday and stayed over to the Sunday. Saturday was actually such a bright, sunny and warm day! I did warn her that this isn't how it normally is, as proved Sunday when it started to rain again. I took Kirstie to Meadowhall in the afternoon on Saturday, and by the time we had finished walking round looking at the shops we were thoroughly worn out. We went to Frankie and Benny's for tea (of which Tom was jealous) where Kirstie went for a Margherita pizza, and I went for a BBQ chicken one. We ventured to the pub for a drink when we came back with Tom and Luke, before returning home and watching a film. On the Sunday we walked into town and went for lunch at Patisserie Valerie before I took her to the station to catch her train. I had such a lovely weekend showing Kirstie round Sheffield as she had never been before!
 On Monday we all got our exam results back and hooray I passed! Tom and I just went out for a couple of drinks to celebrate at the Ball (which if you have been paying close attention to my past posts, I have mentioned before). I might as well re-name this blog as 'where Jess has been to have drinks and food this week', as on Tuesday I took Reesha out to Zara's Indian restaurant as a birthday treat. Her birthday is tomorrow, but as I'm away for the weekend I wouldn't be able to celebrate with her on the day, and so to make up for it we went out for a meal together. The waiter was so nice, and when he heard that it was Reesha's birthday this week, he brought out a cake with a candle on at the end!
 The rest of the week was busily filled with uni and meetings, which led me to being extremely worn out when it reached the evening yesterday! Tom and I went out to the Ball (again) for a couple of drinks to relax, and while we were there they announced they had a music quiz on, so of course we took part! Now, had it been about music from 2000 onwards, we would probably have got a better score, but as the majority seemed to be 70's or 80's (I tried to remember bands my mum/dad used to talk about and like) we scored a resounding 5 1/2 out of 30! It got to the point where we did start making up answers, but it was a laugh and I think we should go again soon. In the background they were playing all the Pop Tarts classics such as Shania Twain and Abba, so it made for a good night.

At least someone enjoyed the heavy rain!

We may have treated ourselves to dessert at the Ball (Sticky Toffee pudding)

Tom went for chocolate fudge cake (of course!).

What made you happy this week?

Love Jess xxx
