The 20th March was ‘International Day of Happiness’ and the lovely Lucy at Real Mum Review asked me to take part in a 10 reasons to be happy post. Of course I was more than happy to join in the fun. I have lots of reasons to be happy, so I thought I would share them with you all.
It is a troubled world we live in, I’m always thinking about wanting something more. Bigger house, better car, new clothes, new shoes……………… so many material things. But when I sit back and think about what really makes me happy there are so many things.
♥ My wonderful Husband. I am so lucky to have a hard working Hubby. He provides for us all, so I am able to work part time and be at home as much as possible with our……
♥ Children. We are blessed to have a wonderful Son and beautiful Daughter. They are completely different in their personalities and attitudes towards life. However they brighten up lives and we are super proud of them both.
♥ My friends. I have a group of amazing friends. Some who I rarely see or hear from, but when we need each other we are a there for each other at the drop of a hat. My 2 closest friends Charlie and Becky along with my my sister have been my rock over the last few years. I love them dearly.
♥ I’m going to be an Aunty. Just before Christmas I found out my sister will be welcoming her first child in the summer. I cannot wait. I love babies and I can’t wait for cuddles with the new addition to our family. I’m excited to be part of this little ones life, just as my sister has been to my two.
♥ My Family. I came from a traditional Mum, Dad two children family. I have a wonderful Aunty, Uncle and cousins that I have remained close too even though they are now living 200 miles away. My Hubby’s family is very large, with 2 brothers, 3 step brothers and 1 step sister. Plus 2 nieces and not forgetting partners. So, family events around at the Father-in-laws is always a lively occasion. Although we don’t often see each other, when we do get together it is alway a happy event.
♥ Fresh Flowers. They make me happy, very simple. At the moment we have an abundance of beautiful daffodils in our garden. My little girl loves to pick them for me, well she loves to pick any flowers. Sometimes ones that are not even from our garden…… haha.
♥ Afternoon Tea. The Hubby and I have had a fare few afternoon tea’s in our time. Although we haven’t been for a while now. It is something we both really enjoy doing together and also with the children. Tea, tiny sandwiches and cake. I mean …… hello, who doesn’t love tea, sandwiches and cake.
♥ Champagne and Cocktails. I’m not sure I need to explain this but I love them both and even more when it’s a champagne cocktail. An evening out with the girls drinking a few cocktails and having fun always makes me happy.
♥ Woodland walks. We love to get out on the weekend for walk in the woods with the children and the dogs. We have 2 crazy cocker spaniels and they drive me mad, numerous times a day. However they love the children and the children love them. Taking the family out for a nice walk is always good fun for us all.
♥ My blog. Although it might be small but I think it’s beautiful and I love it.
It wouldn’t be international day of happiness without sharing some blog love. So, I’m tagging these lovelies to see what 10 things make them happy.
