The Good Things #4

Hello and welcome to The Good Things, my weekly linky celebrating the things in life that bring happiness. Huge thank you to Stephanie and Ruthy for joining in last week, you are superstars!

Happiness means different things to everyone. Whether that’s climbing a mountain, baking a cake, spending time with family, travelling somewhere exciting, a gardening or environmental success, visiting a new restaurant, a great outfit post, or your experiences of learning something new, The Good Things is a linky for everyone. For me, happiness is found in the everyday things. It’s about taking notice of the small things and practising gratitude for the life that I have. So, I will join in by writing about something that’s made me happy each week; My Good Thing…

My Good Thing #4. Le Tour de France.

It’s hardly a small thing this week, is it? The Tour de France came to Yorkshire! I might have been a touch over-excited about this, but it was completely justified. Really, my good thing this week isn’t the Tour itself, despite my love for it. My Good Thing is Yorkshire. The people who made their own weird and wonderful decorations, the giant crowds, the glorious landscapes, rolling Dales and market towns, city centres and country roads. All of it came alive with the spirit of the Tour and I LOVED it. Every last minute. Even the sun stayed with us. Watching the Grand Depart on Saturday, I had tears in my eyes as the riders rolled out past us on their way to Harewood. And it wasn’t just because I’d carried my son on my shoulders all morning! I’m so incredibly proud of the reception that the Tour received and I’ve been glued to the TV coverage at every opportunity. Although I watch it every year, there’s something different about watching it, being able to say ‘I’ve ridden up that hill’ or ‘I know that town’. To everyone involved, I give great thanks. I might have even managed to convert my Mum to the joys of the Tour, which is saying something…

    No problem – I’ll be over again on Saturday if I can find some internet, if not it’ll be Monday – I haven’t forgotten and don’t want to miss this linky. Glad you had fun with TDF in Yorkshire – it looked lovely on the TV, but not such good news about Froome 🙁

  4. Wow, I bet that was an amazing event to witness! I’ve found you via Annie’s recent post on Manneskjur, and thought I would join in with this lovely linky – my first effort is making the most of some simple activities with my two little boys 🙂

    Hi! I’m coming to Leeds from Australia in September for 6 months. It’s a shame I missed the Tour, sounded like such a great show was put on! Can’t wait to check Leeds out.

      Hello! It was an incredible time, but Yorkshire is always fabulous! I’ll follow your IG account and maybe we could meet up for a coffee when you’re in Leeds 🙂
