Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly bloghop hosted by Viklit over at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author. The idea is to post anything you want to celebrate from the last week.



This week I'm celebrating:

- I mentioned this in my What's Up Wednesday post, but I'm celebrating starting regular exercise this week. I've started going on jogging/skipping sessions with my sister in our local park, and I'm loving them. I just need to make sure I keep going!

- I finished all of my second drafts of the short stories for my dissertation this week, and I've started the third drafts. They're starting to look like finished pieces now, which is exciting!

- Summer is drawing to a close here, and I'm relieved! We still have a little warm weather to go, but before we know it autumn and winter will be upon us, and I can't wait! 

- I'm also celebrating the fact that my boyfriend has gotten a job - he's struggled to get them in the past so this is a real achievement. The fun part is he happened to get the same job as me, so now we'll be working together! That should be fun :)

  2. Yay for your boyfriend, and I hope you guys have a great time working together. I know what you mean about summer coming to an end; I prefer the cooler months too.

  3. Ah yes autumn is almost here I have noticed the hedgerows starting to turn brown and our apple trees are full of apples.

    Working together is a great test of a relationship I hope it all goes well.

  5. Great news all around! I started exercising regularly a few months ago and it really does help me, I hope we are both able to keep it up.
    I love autumn - my favorite time of year. I am relieved that the summer is nearly over too. :)

    Exercising is great, I hope you keep it up and don't do like me with my two weeks on two weeks off schedule, I suck. Best of luck to your boyfriend and congrats as well ;)

  7. Oh, great job on all those celebrations, Laura! I'm sure you'll be motivated to keep exercising and it's so nice that your boyfriend is working with you! Jobs are hard to find everywhere so that's a big thing to cheer about.

  9. I'm with Julia... keep warm weather for as long as possible! Oh may I follow your lead soon. Everyday I think I need to start exercising, but it has yet to happen!

  10. Great job for your boyfriend to get that job, obviously as you know I've been there in trying to find one when you really want it and it hurts when you fail even though it's never really your fault, jobs are just scarce, very pleased to hear.

  17. Regular exercise is important. Working with a romantic partner is always a two-edged sword. Be careful. :-)
