#100happydays: Day 8 ‘Catch up’

It’s catch up time here at Hempcloth and Cheesecakes! I’ve had some technical issues with my iPhone and nearly lost all my photos – heartbroken doesn’t even begin to describe it. Technology and I have always had a tentative relationship so I honestly thought all those snaps had disappeared forever! Thankfully a tech genius friend of my dad’s managed to rescue my memories, so I can resume my #100daysofhappy postings. So here is a selection of things that have made me smile in the past month :-).

The Bon Vivant Stockbridge serves ICE WINE!!! This one was a Peller Estate Cabernet Franc from the Niagara region of Toronto, and that honeyed tartness always makes me happy.


This little dude came and made friends with me one day. I was walking along Princes Street one afternoon when he scurried up to nuzzle my boot. I just love these reminders of wildlife in urban, built up areas.


May was a month of turbulent weather changes, but even dreich days had glorious hidden colour. The cherry blossoms growing along Middle Meadow Walk are a perfect example of this, and can brighten up any gray May fog.




I love LEGO, and this wee guy was just sitting in someone’s garden. Some folk may think a long LEGO head is peculiar, but it’s this sort of randomness that makes me smile.
