One of the best things about starting this series of posts is that it’s making me actively seek out the smile inducing, feel good factor moments in life. Self served happiness if you will.
If you follow my Instagram feed, you may have gathered that food is a big thing in this house. Friday nights are made for sitting down with Mr OLS, a glass of something bubbly and some favourite recipes. Then comes Saturday morning breakfast…

If you’re a food fanatic then I heartily recommend Kate’s blog – I’m Not A Celebrity. I always look forward to her Foodie Fridays posts – not to be read if you’re feeling at all hungry. She’s also rather lovely.
A love of good food equates to more regular exercise. Since New Year’s day we’ve been down to the beach on several occasions…
Walking along against a bracing breeze, throwing stones into the water, partaking in a spot of winter paddling, looking for shells and stopping for a hot chocolate is the perfect antidote to winter. It’s also been a factor in one of the biggest decisions we’ve made for a while – the Online Stylist family is to be completed by a dog.
Having had dogs before, I know it’s not a decision to be taken lightly but one that I feel will enrich our lives in lots of ways – especially Junior Child’s. With plans afoot to hopefully adopt a Puggle in the spring, we’re all about the Puppy Planning in this house now. I’ll keep you posted!
