“Plenty of people miss their share of happiness, not because they never found it, but because they didn’t stop to enjoy it. ~William Feather”
Part two of all the wonderful little things that made me ridiculously happy in June. You can take a peek at part one here, and remember it only takes one tiny little thing or a special little moment every single day to change your whole world.
Having a Mr whippy at the seaside is one of my favourite things to do, it automatically transports be back to myself childhood and makes me feel like a big kid, mainly because I still eat like a five year old and end up with more ice cream around myself mouth than actually in it.
Yummy good healthy food makes me happy, when I eat crap I feel like crap so when I eat healthy I absolutely feel healthy and happy.
Getting a new old car, my car broke down a couple of weeks and I can not live without a car, I tried for four days and it was an absolute nightmare. I never buy new cars because we use mine to transport the animals and go all the muddy/dirty places and if it was new then I would be constantly freaking out. I still get as excited about getting old car as I do a new one.
A day where it didn’t rain which is a strange thing to be happy about in June but honestly I can’t be the only person who is sick of the British summer weather. But for a whole 24 hours it didn’t rain and I managed to spend some time outdoors enjoying summer.
Going for a long walk after work to clear my head always improves mood and makes me feel better specially after a stressful day. I love being outside getting some fresh air, I get cabin fever if I’m stuck inside too long.
Spending time with Dave because let’s face it, he’s the cutest dog in the world!
My daddy, I am the world’s biggest daddies girl and fathers day is one of my favourite days of the year. Although family drive’s me nuts at time, I could never change them.
I have recently started writing for another blog which I absolutely love and can’t tell you how happy it makes me that someone else likes my writing enough to publish it. Eventually I want to be writing for magazines and newspapers but for now I’m extremely happy to be writing for blogs.
Jamie celebrated his 31st birthday in June which in our home is just another reason to eat cake and boy did we eat a lot of cake. I know I go on all the time about Jamie being my number one fan but really life is so much easier when you have a strong loving support group behind you, I absolutely could not have achieved as much as I have in the last year without him and he supports and encourages me while making me laugh every single day.
I definitely don’t need an excuse to bake, sometimes I just bake so my house smells like cookies. Baking makes me so happy and as strange as it might sound just being in my kitchen makes me happy the older I get the more I want to be at home playing house wife and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
This last month has been pretty exhausting for me mentally but I’ve managed to get through it with a smile on my face, somethings we can’t change and some things we just have to ride out. And it’s so important to look for positive points in every situation and try to work through all problems with a smile.
Cinema date with my little brother, spending time with my brother is one of my favourite ways to spend an evening, we are both hugely into films so we usually end up at the cinema and its usually to watch a horror film. Nothing beats a trip to the cinema than sneaking in a box full of cupcakes.
Curling up on the sofa with some ice cream or a lot of ice cream.
Cake, enough said!!
Once a month I treat myself to a pedicure, who doesn’t enjoy a few hours of pampering. After spending hours in the gym on my feet nothing relaxes me more than a long pedicure and foot rub, pure heaven.
Feeling confident enough to try new make up, I can’t believe that six months ago I barely wore any make up, I had such low self confidence that I certainly didn’t want to do anything that drew attention to me. Now I’m discovering a whole new fashion and beauty world which I’m loving and have proved that self love can come at any age.
Getting my monthly chocolate baby delivery always puts a smile on my face. There is no other monthly box in the whole world that is as cute as chocolate babies and I always look forward to seeing their wonderful creations then eating all the evidence before Jamie gets home.
Sharing Jamie’s passion with him makes me happy although because he goes away so much I don’t get to be involved as much as I would like. But now and again I get to spend evenings fishing with him and watch him living his dream while trying to teach me about how to catch a carp. I swear there is a folder in my brain now called how to catch fish.
