I was tagged by Rachel from Coffeecakeskids to list ten things that make me happy. I really like this idea, but really struggle with what to write in these posts. I am leaving the obviously things out that always make me happy which are my Finance Tom, My nephews Jack, Harry, Alex & Ben and my family and thinking of the other little things.
Here goes anyways.
The weather has a massive impact on my mood if it’s sunny and warm, you’ll more than likely find me in the garden topping up my tan, lying on a sun lounger with a cold beverage in one hand. I enjoy nothing more than wearing maxi dresses and flip-flops over jumpers and coats. Even though been born in October I know I should have been a summer baby.
As cheesy as this sounds, I love flowers and the OH always say why you buying things that are dead anyways. No matter if it a bunch of flowers, a pot plant or flowers in the garden I love them as they brighten up any room or dull day and make me smile. I feel I do get this from my mum as she always has flowers in her house and we buy each other the odd bunch now and again just because we want to.
Every year for as far back as I can remember is always going away whether it be abroad or in this country with my parents. I love to get away and see different places and countries etc. Some of the destinations I have been to are Spain, Amsterdam, Lanzarote, Cyprus, Turkey, Cornwall, Ibiza, and Wales, I’m sure there are others but can’t recall some of them as I was only little.
These are both things I love and couldn’t live without because I take so many photos on them to treasure and then every so often uploads them all to my computer to make sure they are all backed up and safe and I don’t lose any of my memories.
More so in the winter months, but I love nothing more than coming home from work and getting changed straight into my pyjamas, pulling my thick fluffy slippers and dressing gown on too and snuggling up on the Sofa.
6. My pets
This may sound silly to some people, but not to me. I have 2 rabbits, 2 guinea pigs and a dog that I share my house with and I love nothing more than coming home and been greeted by my dog, Carly. She is always happy to see us when we walk in from work and always manages to put a smile on my face even if I have had a rubbish day at work. The same with my rabbits and guinea’s, I go in the garage and talk to them, fuss them and cuddle them, they are also always happy to see me, running up to the front of the cages squeaking and climbing up the front for fuss.
7. My Home
Again sounds like a silly one but me and my partner brought our first home nearly 3 year now and I love nothing more than going home to know that I have succeeded in life and purchased my first home and got on the property ladder, which wasn’t easy after years of saving up then trying to find a property.
I’ve always been a tea drinker and I love nothing more than a perfect cup of tea when I get up in the morning with maybe a few cheeky biscuits to dunk in it aswell. It can’t be milky or like “piss water” and can’t be too black like “builders tea” and the milk has to go in before the water.
I love nothing more than a bit of shopping, I have to be in the mood for it though, I can’t just go shopping, I have to really want something before I go and buy it, but then can also spend a fortune in one go if I see things I like.
10. A good TV Series
I’m not normally a TV person but if I find a decent TV series to watch such as “Suits” which I was addicted too a few months ago, that makes me happy as it will give me something to watch during the day/ evening snuggled on the sofa with the fiance. We have recently just started watching “Orange in the new black”
