Things That Make Me Happy


Here are a few things that never fail to put a smile on my face:


  • spending time with people I love
  • waking up to blue skies and the sun shining
  • freshly washed bedsheets (even better if paired with freshly washed PJs!)
  • getting home from work while it's still light
  • receiving post that isn't a bill or junk
  • baby animals, particularly the ones that enjoy being fussed
  • finishing a good book and still thinking about the characters days later
  • finding money I forgot I had in a strange place
  • a freezing cold drink with loads of ice on a warm day
  • the sound of the waves crashing against the beach
  • watching a film which makes me laugh, makes me cry and gives me goosebumps
  • fairy lights
  • fresh flowers (particularly lillies)
  • finding a perfume that I can still smell at the end of the day
  • family BBQs
  • having my hair done
  • feeling like I've made a difference, particularly to the children in my class
  • good skin days
  • newly-painted nails
  • lazy mornings tucked up in bed
  • getting ready for a night out
  • weddings
  • finding a bargain
  • long walks
  • belly laughing
  • being able to lift a weight I couldn't before
  • the feeling you get when you wake up early to go on holiday
  • bumping into old friends
  • cocktails in the sunshine
  • clearing out my wardrobe
  • amazing fireworks displays (especially the ooh and aahs)
  • looking back at old photos
What makes you happy?

  4. Yes! I love fairy lights too! I tried to convince my husband that we need them in our bedroom and he looked at me like I was a little crazy. Haha!
