109 weeks and 5 days | 50 things that make me happy

A little meme has been doing the rounds recently called

’50 things that makes me happy’.

The clue is in the name; what makes you happy? I have been tagged by my lovely friend Aby, who blogs over at YouBabyMeMummy, to give my answers.

So here goes…

1. My three boys — tiny boys and big man-shaped boy.

2. Pottering about at home.

3. A new, unread, interiors magazine.

4. Blue skies.

5. Family get-togethers (especially our big summer barbecue).

6. The smell of freshly cut grass.

7. Picking my babies up from nursery and seeing their faces light up when they see me.

8. Holidays; in the UK, abroad, even bank holidays. I love them all.

9. Festivals. A weekend of joyful revelry.

10. Dancing in a field in my wellies.

11. Glitter.

12. My lovely friends.

13. Collecting the eggs from our hen-house.

14. Dolly — our beautiful little caravan.

15. Seeing Dolly pull up outside the house = adventures :)

16. A cup of freshly brewed tea.

17. My cats (AKA furry faced children).

18. Beautiful stationery.

19. Designing new things and feeling excited about sharing them.

20. Blogging.

21. Baking.

22. A busy, noisy house full of our nearest and dearest.

23. Fresh flowers in a vase.

24. Daylight (I hate it when it’s grey and overcast).

25. Buying or making new things for our home.

26. Buying new things for the twins.

27. A cold, frosty, Gin and tonic.

28. Eggs Benedict.

29. Kicking a big pile of crunchy autumn leaves.

30. Gardening and seeing things grow.

31. Upcycling furniture and making things beautiful.

32. Spending time with my boy. Together for almost 20 years and I still can’t get enough of him!

33. Trashy TV; Housewives of Cheshire, TOWIE, Made In Chelsea. Love it all :)

34. My weekly Pilates session.

35. The babies’ long lunchtime nap. 2 hours to get things done.

36. Working for myself. A luxury I’ll never take for granted.

37. The run up to Christmas — the beginning of December is always so exciting!

38. Chocolate.

39. Going on a day out with my little family.

40. Watching my tiny boys play.

41. Hearing them laugh.

42. Springtime; fresh and new with the anticipation of summer.

43. Music. Hurrah for iPods, Spotify and the Sonos.

44. Dancing wildly in the kitchen, when no-one’s looking.

45. Poring over Rightmove, at houses we’ll never be able to afford!

45. Instagram.

46. Long, lazy lunches with our friends and their children.

47. The colour yellow.

48. Finding a pair of jeans that fit nicely.

49. Being a mama. I can’t quite put into words how happy that makes me.

50. Life.

So there we have it. 50 things that make me happy.

  1. I love Eggs Benedict! I honestly had never heard of it before my pre-wedding brunch. Can’t believe how Un-egg-ucated I was. I also love lush stationary!

  2. Oh my, I miss those 2 hour naps. My two just got up after Miss 3 not sleeping at all – just resting for 25 minutes and Miss 1 had a 30 minute nap … So it’s safe to say I didn’t get much done!
    I’m also with you on the finding a pair of jeans that fit! That’s a great feeling.
    Such a great list of things that make you happy, you have a lot of wonderful things in your life! :)

  3. I never get sick of seeing people’s happy lists and kicking the leaves in autumn; I wish I’d have thought of that one, I love doing that xx

  5. I think it’s awesome that you have 50 things that make you happy! And I LOVED the photo at the end. Hmmm, what makes me happy (that you haven’t already mentioned)? A day on the beach, just sitting in the sand and soaking up the sun and sights – cuddling with my Kindle on the front porch swing in mild weather – rainy days, as long as the sun comes back out presently – journaling – quiet time – funny movies, shows! – music that moves my soul. :) This was fun!

    1. Thanks Jessie! I could have written another 50 to be honest! There’s a lot in life that makes me happy! Including all of the things you mentioned that weren’t on the list! Totally with you re the day on a beach… I LOVE that! :)
