Mrs Crafty B tagged me in her challenge to do a list of 50 things that make me happy. Basically I have to list 50 things then tag some more people to do the challenge. I really enjoyed doing this and recommend you have a go too, even if it’s just 10 things, go on it will be worth it.
So here is my list….
1 My cat Mo – she’s a rescue cat and when I got her she was terrified of everything, I never get bored of seeing her relaxed, more confident and greeting people when they come round.
2 Spending time with my family.
3 My nieces – they are such cutie pies (besotted Auntie).
4 My new fan – my flat is unbearably hot in the summer so this makes me very happy.
5 I work for the NHS and nothing beats seeing a patient get better and go home again.
6 Make & Create Collective – The monthly craft group I’m a member of.
7 Cross stitch.
8 Making quilts (I have made 3 small ones so far).
09 My Mum’s home made Macaroni Cheese.
10 Getting my subscription of Molly Makes Magazine through the post.
11 My Grannie on my Mum’s side past away about 15 years ago. She was a lovely gentle lady who enjoyed doing tapestry well into her 90s. I have one she did for me when she was 91 years old which is one of my most treasured possessions.
12 My new car – I’m currently learning to drive so it’s a real treat when someone is able to take me out for a drive in it.
13 My bed – anytime, but especially if it’s got fresh bed linen on it.
14 Memories of my holiday to Turkey in 2013 – I went with a friend from work and we just had so much fun. I did thinking that I would never normally be brave enough to do such as jumping off the top of a boat and rafting.
15 Sunshine everything just seems more positive & hopefully when the sun is shining.
16 Sitting in Mum’s garden, it’s so relaxing.
17 Dogs – we always had dogs when I was a child so anytime I get to spend with dogs is a joy, they are such gorgeous animals. This week I had the pleasure of spending time with two fox red Labradors and a working cocker spaniel.
18 Nail vanish and painting my nails or having them painted.
19 Finding clothes that fit – I’m plus size and tall so am quite limited on finding clothes that suit me so when I do I buy them in every colour. 😉
20 Champagne, cava or prosecco – I love my bubbly.
21 My Kindle – I never thought I would be converted to a e-reader but I love my kindle and hardly ever read a paperback version since I was given it.
22 Blogging – I’m new to this blogging malarkey but really enjoying it so far.
And it’s so exciting getting comments/ likes/ followers too.
23 Wandering round museums -I currently have an annual pass to our local museums, so I really must make the most of it!
24 Spending time with my 6 year old Goddaughter and her twin brother.
25 Hairdressers – going to have my hair cut or coloured.
27 The BBC iPlayer Radio App – Mum got me into The Archers last year and I also love listening to other dramas. I prefer it to TV as I can do other things whilst listening to a play.
28 The smell of freshly cut grass.
29 Being given a drawing by friends children. I have a few stuck up on my kitchen cabinets.
31 Looking round a good fabric shop and all the gorgeous material (and buying it also, obviously!).
32 A good series on TV.
33 Skype-ing with my friend that lives abroad.
34 Getting into bed after a night shift when you know the rest of the world is getting up and going to work.
35 Getting home and changing out of my work clothes at the end of the day.
36 Sitting in a coffee shop and watching the world go by.
37 Chatting with friends.
38 Going to my Mum’s quilting group (The T ladies), they are always so welcoming and friendly.
39 Text messages.
40 Receiving Postcards.
41 Having a shower.
42 When I have made the effort to put make up on and straightening my hair.
44 Scented Candles.
45 My sizzix machine, that a friend generously gave me.
46 The quilt my Mum gave me, I love curling up on the sofa with it on a cold day.
47 Crunchy leaves in Autumn and the autumnal colours on the trees.
48 Losing weight (just wish it was easier!).
50 Finding decent vegan/ vegetarian make up or toiletries.
