Five on Friday!

I am joining with Amy from Love Made My Home for her Five On Friday again this week.

This is five things that have made me happy this week – I  have not got out and about very much!




This is the view that I get to admire from my desk, every day. Now I appreciate that it might not be everyone’s cup of tea but I consider Liverpool to be my home city and,  after being away for more than four years, it warms my heart every time I look up to see the beautiful Liver Building!




I think you all know by now that we love a birthday here on The Glade, we had another last weekend and I made these cupcakes for a very special little lady that we are having the pleasure of watching grow up! Miss NT  is such a little character, we love her! The frosting was like chocolate moose, I think they went down well.




I hope I am not speaking too soon here but I was concerned about this little chap, our Jack! I was afraid that now I am working office hours again he might rebel. So far so good, I don’t want to say anymore in case I jinx it, but he has been a star!!




I wrote a post about my garden this week and this Hydrangea did get a mention. But I love this picture that I have taken since. It is the most beautiful vibrant red/pink sort of colour, I absolutely love it. I say this about nearly all flowers, but I think this might be my favorite garden flowers. However, if the Honeysuckle flowers, I am sure I will say the same about that – I’m clearly very fickle when it comes to flowers ha!




I took this picture in Wales a couple of weeks ago and it has not much to do with number five except, I am hoping to get out and about with Miss Glade to do some more Geo Caching this weekend. We went last weekend and absolutely loved it. She has had a stressful week doing exams and so, last night she got the bus from school to the big city to meet me after work for a lovely dinner. We had a great time!


That is my five happy things this week!


I am very late at joining You Baby Me Mummy and Mums’ Days for #TheList


It is also my #HappyDays post with What Katy Said and Tiny Foot Steps.


 Have a lovely day!

  1. I would be very happy to have that view too! How lvely to work in Liverpool city centre – I have a friend who works in the building you can see! Enjoy your evening with Miss Glade – good to relax after exams. Where are you going to eat?!


    1. Thank you, it is brilliant to be in the city. I am hoping to get a table at Lunya but have not booked yet, if they can’t fit us in it will probably be Casa Italia, that’s her fav! Have a lovely weekend x


  2. I think that is a wonderful view from your office!!!! Definitely one to enjoy! How good that Jack is fine with the new routine, he is obviously a good doggie! Your hydrangea is beautiful isn’t it, what a stunning shade of pink!!!!! I know that people rave about blue hydrangeas and I like them a lot, but gosh, deep dark pink ones are stunning I think and yours is just perfect!!! I hope that you have a great weekend geocaching! Thank you so much as always for joining in, you are a wonderful, kind and generous blogger! xx

  6. Such beautiful photos Lisa!

    I could handle that work view every day!! I so want to get back to Europe one of these days and see some of these gorgeous places first hand. The Wales pic too – so pretty!!

    Those cupcakes look delish! I’m hoping to get planting more flowers this weekend, as I completely admire your hydrangea. 😉

    And Jack looks like such a sweetheart. Fingers crossed he keeps being a good boy.
    Happy weekend! xo
