What's on the jukebox, Jo?

Adventures & Tea Parties Instagram

How's your week been? Have you got lovely plans for the bank holiday weekend?

I didn't have a chance to write my weekly 'What's on the jukebox, Jo?' post last week because some horrid grown-up stuff had to be dealt with, on a Friday at 5pm as well, how unfair was that?! This week has been another stressful one, meaning I nearly didn't write again BUT the whole point of this Friday post is to look at the good stuff that happened in the week and celebrate the wins. It's oh so easy to let the negative overpower the good things, right? So, this is me saying NO to the negative shizzle and YES to positives! I'm hoping it will make me feel a bit better by the end of it.

Positive thing #1 / I shared the #ColourMyEveryDay Instagram prompts and you lot went mad for them! You've showed so much excitement over the challenge that I now have no idea why I thought no one would join in, ha-ha! Thank you all so much, YOU ARE THE BEST!

Positive thing #2 / I wrote and shared blog posts on Colour SeekersA day in the life of a brand and web designer, and 24 hours in Bristol.

Positive thing #3 / I helped run a Somerset Etsy Meet Up where we looked at product development. We did a bit of a show and tell before giving each other helpful feedback and I honestly found it so inspiring seeing everyone's creations. What an incredible, amazing bunch they are and I now can't wait for the next meet up!

Positive thing #4 / I learnt how to do something in Photoshop...after swearing at it for a bit first ;)

Positive thing #5 / I gave myself a bunch of freshly picked flowers from the garden and went on a glorious walk in the sunshine to celebrate finishing several mammoth jobs. 

Positive thing # 6 / I bought some extremely colourful tights. 

Positive thing # 7 /  I am super excited about seeing my bro, sister in-law and niece tonight!

Ok, now I feel a little bit better and I'm going to increase those positive vibes with 5 songs that give me happy flips in my tummy. I hope they do that for you too.

Have a wonderful weekend and hey, if you've had a bit of rubbish week, go and write down 7 good things that happened recently and pin them up on the wall or maybe write them in your bullet journal in bright colours. However you do it, go and be nice to yourself.

Happy Friday everyone!
