I don’t know how I missed this tag going round but now I’ve been tagged by Jen at Fuss Free Living I can share…you know I love these tags! 🙂
On a bad day I would say I couldn’t think of 5 things that make me happy so I thought it may have been a real struggle to think of 50 but I gave it a go! 🙂
In no particular order…
Stella, of course
Tulips, any colour, but preferably purple or white
Butterflies, especially in my garden
Chocolate – only dark these days
Purple things – all of the purple things!
Writing – a poem, a list, anything but numbers
Photography – especially getting the shot I set out for
My loving family – and I know you shouldn’t have favourites but I do have a favourite auntie, uncle, and, cousins and they know who they are!
Snail mail – joining a post circle was one of my better ideas
My hair not looking like a scarecrow wig
A day without a headache
Other people’s puppies
Getting my eyeliner just right
My baby nephew’s smile (even when it’s wind!)
Lego – not the Star Wars sets or anything, just proper bricks to use your imagination with
Pinterest – I’m not addicted though 😉
Memories of Venice
New Forest ponies
Sweet Williams/Pinks/Carnations – invoke happy memories of my Nans
Picking up a book and knowing from the first page you already can’t wait to find out what happens on the last page
Writing in pencil rather than pen
Teapots – never use one but love them!
Roads lined with trees
The Mistletoe Kisses candle by Lily Flame – smells like Christmas in a tin
Peacocks – still don’t understand why feathers so beautiful are considered bad luck?!
Sending proper Christmas cards
Keeping a houseplant alive
The seaside on a quiet day
The scent of a garden bonfire
Working in the charity shop
Liking the first thing I pull out of the wardrobe to wear
Aimlessly mooching around garden centres
Putting the last piece in a jigsaw
Poppies; wild or cultivated, just all the poppies
Rainbows – even the ones you see through farm irrigators – always special
Party food – cheese & pineapple rules!
Singing in the car, pretending I’m in tune
Finding art in charity shops
Eating fruit instead of veg
Stained glass windows
The squirrels in my mum’s garden
Imagery of London – I haven’t been in so long though it’d scare me now!
Tea & jaffa cakes – I’m a dunker, are you?
Adding a new branch to the family tree
Going to the zoo
‘Friends’ – the TV show; real ones let you down too often
For someone who professes to dislike Christmas, I’m finding it amusing that 3 of these have Christmas connotations!
