These are the last of my #100happydays pictures, I finished the challenge last Sunday, the last day of my 31st year... which pleased me so much... one end coinciding with another. I had a wonderful birthday, I spent the weekend before with my family, there were 10 of us, we had some delicious food, beautiful ales & cocktails, and did a lot of catching up, laughing and chatting. On the day of my birthday, I wandered around by the coast during the day and crafted in the afternoon, before Tim came home from work to cook my traditional birthday dinner of bangers and mash. It was a quiet day but I was pretty content with my lot.
So 100 happy days? I really enjoyed taking part in this challenge, learning to look for and find things to be happy about every day. Looking back over the pictures now, I have so many good memories of the last 3 months that to be honest I probably would have mostly forgotten about, had I not sought them out and snapped a picture. Some days were hard, especially towards the end, with the fading light and a touch of nearly-there-weariness, but over all, i'm so proud that I stuck with this challenge and saw it all the way to the end.
