50 Things That Make Me Happy

April 15, 2015


I try to keep my blog a place for all the happy memories, all the moments I want to remember for the right reasons and a place to share the many things that make me smile. Today my husband went back to work after a lovely week off of family time so although we are all a little sad not to have him at home anymore this seems like the perfect time to remind myself of all the things that make me happy.Happy

I have been tagged by three lovely ladies who have fantastic blogs; Lisa from Into The Glade, Kerri-Ann From Life As Our Little Family and Jess from Mummy of Boy Girl Twins for the 50 things that make me happy. If I think to much about it I’ll be here all day so in no particular order, here we go:

1. Family

2. Converse trainers

3. Hearing my boys giggle together

4. Autumn

5. Buying new summer clothes

6. Chai Tea

7. The first cup of tea of the day

8. Red Wine

9. Being with old friends that make you laugh so much you cry

    Oh this is a brilliant list Hayley! I missed off my husband completely, he just didn’t get a look in, clean sheets are just more important haha!! An early night and stationary shops definitely should have been on my list too! Fab xxx
