A Lesson in Simple Happinesses

Good morning Dancers! 

Ok, its not morning anymore, but this morning was sunny and this afternoon is drizzly and humid, so Im going to stick with a cheery Good Morning. Im home sick today, so I thought my Bliss potential would be limited. However, I underestimated myself. 

Once I made it out of bed, Moschino perfume ('Funny' today, for anyone interested) was my first stop. I am yet to find a Moschino perfume I don't like, they all inspire happiness with summery, fruity flavours. Growing up I strongly recall Mum saving perfumes for special occasions and it never made sense to me, even as a child. She had plenty! For Christmas, Courts was gifted Lacoste Challenge and similarly spouted objections to my spritzing him generously, for fear I waste it. 

Today, whether you are a saver or a spritzer, or even if you are guilty of overdosing your friends and colleagues with too much of your favourite scent, throw caution to the wind and enjoy the finer things in life. Go and re-spritz :)

I mentioned yesterday that we were off to the Auckland Museum for the Outrageous Fortune exhibit, which was awesome - I highly recommend it if you were a fan of the show. After the OF exhibit, we ventured around the rest of the museum. Do you remember the Elephant that used to be near the entrance? He was put into storage, but he's back, which was very cool, as was touching the fur of a black bear and staring into the eyes of a snarling tiger - all real and all stuffed along with hundreds of other specimens in the interactive Weird and Wonderful hall. I am off track. Courts came up to me and said he had something to show me. I was confused for a split second until he said "It's so you can do your blog thing", and the aquarium of chirping crickets made all the sense in the world, and I sat next to them and absorbed the sound for a second. Not all bliss has to be self made! 

I am very lucky.
