Last year on my birthday I embarked on a challenge to Instagram a photo every day of something that makes me smile because I’d been going through a period where I was feeling grumpy and frustrated. The idea was to focus myself and force myself to find something that makes me smile in the everyday. When you’ve spent a very normal or frustrating day at work and nothing much has happened it’s not always easy.

Ironically last night I didn’t end up posting because I was getting cranky trying to put the video of the 365 images together. Finally I got it sorted and here it is. A lot of photos seem to be of glasses of wine, beer or inside pubs. Oops. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that’s because I was catching up with people who make me smile. Not entirely true but it sounds good. There are also lots of photos of my arse on the beach which as we know is where I’m happiest.
