50 Happy Things.

Thank you Awesome Austerity for my nomination! I love doing things like this. It reminds you of all the positive things in life but also it’s a good way to get to know other people.

Here’s my 50 things that make me smile in no particular order… 

1. My little Ollie! I could write 50 things I love about him but I’ll leave him at number 1 and just say everything about my little boy is perfect! 

2. The Dubai smell. My partners fragrance custom made in Dubai.

3. Maddie – my 18 year old MGF.

4. Listening to my vinyls.

5. Old music in any other format 50s- 80s I don’t like up to date stuff. 

6. Going to ballet class.

7. Going to the theatre.

8. Gene Kelly!

10. Being lazy binging on TV series.

11. Creamy cocktails. White Russian, mudslide, orgasms!

12. Being really silly with my sisters! “Here we are at NYC where we’re concerned about how hot the room is!” We complained about the heating being on in our hotel… It was minus 15 degrees outside… 

13. Writing.

  • I love chatting to my husband on car journeys too – he can’t get away from me there!!

    Great list – it really lifts my spirits reading other people’s happy things 🙂

    • It’s interesting how much we have in common with fellow bloggers too! We must all be a certain type of person! I’ve found most bloggers to be very optimist happy people. Writing helps to make sense of things. 🙂
