6 Things That Make Me Happy


Amongst the hustle and bustle of everyday life is us, you. In todays world we are constantly hooked up on some sort of technology, be it our phones, computers, or television. Our mind is never truly at rest until we go to sleep. I am an avid internet dweller, I put my hands up to that. However, I have been addicted to the worldwide web since I was introduced to it when I was seven years old.

I am now four days away of reaching the third floor, my thirties. Now, I have been thinking about what makes me truly happy? If I asked myself this question ten years ago I would have said the internet, my laptop, television. Technology. Don't get me wrong I love technology, I love how we can chat and network with people all over the world. But, as I got older my views have somewhat changed. 

Here is six things that make me happy

1. My Husband
Cheesy as it may sound ( sick buckets at the ready), I love just hanging out with my hubby. We are both very different in personality but both as equally immature, in a sense that we act like total kids, both at home and in public. Playing pranks on each other is a must for eveyone in a relationship.

2. Long walks
I love walking and I'm not just saying that because I can't drive. I'm a keen walker and one without a phone strapped to my hand, unless i'm listening to music. I love how you can clear your mind or think about things. You always see something that you may miss if you were in a vehicle. Once I walked past a young Munt Jac grazing, it was so cute.

3. Music
Music to me is what memories ride upon. Stick a track on and i'm transported into my own little world, where nothing matters. I even sing out loud (Sorry, not sorry to all my neighbours and my husband).

4. Reading
Now, I do love a good book. I mainly read fantasy, chic lit and recently self development. I always get sucked in and for me it's like watching a movie in your head. I am made if I'm in my comfy lounge waer and with a cup of tea. My favourite book I read recently is 'The Little Flower Shop By The Sea' by Ali McNamara. 

5. Going Home
When I say 'going home', I mean going back to my folks home. Nothing compares to that feeling of returning 'home'. I love my mums cooking and I love seeing my parents as I don't get to see them often as I live in another town. There are things their that hold special memories for me and I love walking around my old stomping ground.

6. Sleep
I never thought I'd say this, but sleep makes me very happy. I have a very demanding job and after a long, stressful day. I love climbing into my huge bed with clean bedding and falling into a deep sleep. I especially love it, if I have a day off the next day and I have the pleasure of turning off all my alarms (yes, I have about 5 alarms that I hit snooze on) and getting my head down for more than six hours.

I have many things that makes me happy and this is just a little taster for you. Have a lovely Friday and I will see you soon.

                                                    What makes you happy?
