How to cheer yourself up when feeling down...

I spent the majority of last week feeling pretty rubbish, suffering from a sore throat and a cough.  I was however, determined to cheer myself up and stop feeling sorry for myself.

Here's a little recap of what I usually do to turn that frown upside down...

(instagram name: angie_peanuts_pearls)

1)  Spend time relaxing on the couch with a good book and a cup of tea (of course)

2)  'Bake' yourself better!  See what I did there? Here are my banana and nutella muffins

3)  Get some fresh air! We headed down to to Dunraven Bay for a walk...

4)  Cuddle time is most important, especially with a clingy beagle pup...

5)  Plus...don't forget your vitamins...Vitamin C all the way!

...and voila! 

I'm feeling much better already.



  1. Who could resist such a gorgeous pup?? xx

  2. banana and nutella?! oh my god.

  4. Arrrrrrrrrrrrgh for the umpteenth time I love your dog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *bursts* Big yes to all of these as cheer me ups. Especially your dog. Did I mention I love your dog? Xx

  5. Yes good tips! I've come down with the flu as well. So annoying. It's even worse when you have no choice but to chase a toddler around all day. Sigh...counting down till bedtime!
