You shampoo, wash, rinse, dry, straighten, gel your hair to perfection. Feeling great – you walk outside but the wind is blowing in the wrong direction throwing all your hair forwards and ruining all your hard efforts.
Today, the wind gods were smiling. I stepped outside and the wind was blowing on my face and pulling my hair back – blinksofbliss.
Do you enjoy feeling the wind through your hair?

I had a flower pot left by our previous tenants in my balcony. Every time I see that I used to tell myself I must do something with it.
Some lightning struck my one day and i dropped some coriander seeds in that pot and totally forgot about it.
After few days I woke up with sound heavy rain and rushed to our balcony to save my clothes from getting wet.
I noticed my coriander seedlings popped out.
This was truly a blink of bliss moment for me. I was happy like a kid that day.
Thank you Swathi for sharing your blinksofbliss!

Ever found a perfect picture and a great spot on your wall to place it?
I brought this lovely picture which ended up homeless on the floor because I simply could not find the time to hang it up – I know excuses. So, today was the day! My picture was going up. I found my drill, hook, measuring tape and a pencil. After about 2 hours it was up and thankfully the picture is large enough to cover about 30 mistake holes (mental note – remember to learn about how to drill into a plaster board).
Standing back and finally seeing my picture up was #blinksofbliss – it looks perfect and I will never move it!
Have you experienced a #blinksofbliss today?

Have you experienced a freebie from a promotion stall? It could be a sample of a new washing powder, a perfume or a hand cream. I always try to take a sneaky peek to see if the freebie takes my fancy.
Today, I was about to walk past one these stalls until I saw a crowd of people munching on something and as you know I love my food! I took a closer look and noticed they were promoting a new doughnut and before I even knew it I was straight to the front of the queue to have a free taste. It was possibly the best piece of doughnut that I have ever sampled – I ended up buying the box. A deliciously expensive but tasty free #blinkofbliss!
What kind of freebie has been your #blinksofbliss?

I no longer need an electronic alarm clock as I have an 19 month toddler who does the job every day early in the mornings. We hear him shout from the top of his lungs “Maammmaaaaaaa, Maaaaaammmmaaaaa, Maaammmmmmaaaaaaaaaaa”. In toddler speak, this means, “Get up and come get me now!”.
So it’s 5.30am and he goes off right on time. But then, suddenly he goes quiet and so I went to check and much to my delight, he was sleeping which means ‘Mammmmmmmaaaaaaaaaa’ can go back to sleep too! #blinksofbliss
Have you experienced the joy of extra sleep?

You wake up, crawl out of bed and at some point, you will open your blinds or the curtains and take a look outside. You could view the forecast from your phone. However, nothing beats making a weather assessment for yourself, especially when needing to make a crucial decision on what to wear.
Today, waking up, opening my blinds, seeing and feeling the heat of the sun for 3 consecutive days in London is simply #blinksofbliss. Finally, I can put my cardigans away!
Do you love seeing the sun in the morning?

You’ve been on countdown since you booked your trip. The day finally arrives but before you lock your front door and get in the car you need to make sure:
- windows are shut,
- back door is closed,
- heating and water are switched off,
- gas cooker turned off,
- hair straightener switched off and packed away,
- hair dryer packed (always need my own!),
- baby food, clothes, nappies, wipes, toys, beaker, dummy, shoes, medicine, first aid kit and books packed,
- snacks and pack lunch made,
- travel high chair and cot loaded into car
- mobile charger packed,
- photo camera packed,
- sat nav plugged in and destination set,
- petrol tank full, and
- baby strapped in.
After a very long time, we had our first family road-trip and it was #blinksofbliss to finally be on the road, that is, until we remembered we forgot to double-check that back door!
How do you feel when your trip finally starts?

You are so resilient, dependable and strong. You never let me down. No matter what happens, you are always there – week in and week out. Please don’t take offence Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Friday, I love you the most.
For me, Friday evenings are a #blinksofbliss as it means the weekend will soon start and my affair with Saturday and Sunday can begin!
Do you love the F day as much as I do?

There is always that one item you just can’t wait to wear when you have returned from clothes shopping. You remember – how great, thin and super hot you looked when you tried it on in the shop fitting room. If you are like me, you did a little dance of joy in front of the mirror. Okay, maybe not!
I had that same feeling until I wore my brand new trousers for longer than 2 hours. This is when I realised I couldn’t actually breathe when sitting down in them – so tight! It was such a #blinksofbliss to undo that top button and take them off – phew!
Have you had a similar #blinksofbliss?
