10 things that make me happy

By | May 5, 2010

I’ve been tagged for this meme by Julie at Allaboutus and such like.

So, what makes me happy?

1. Obviously, my baby girl!  In a ‘so-happy-I-could-explode’ kind of way that I never knew existed before having her.  Even if she’s having an off day, one smile from her and it’s all fine again! 

2. My husband, M.  On paper, we are complete opposites but we seem to work.  In reality we share the same sense of humour and enjoy doing the same things.  We’ve been together for 8 years now, married for 4 and he just makes me happy!

3. Cars.  I love cars!  My first car was a mini which I loved.  Me and M have since restored another mini which was great fun!  We currently own a Range Rover and a Land Rover 90.  We use the 90 for green laning and offroading so its not the prettiest thing you’ve seen!

My dream car would have to be either an E-type Jaguar or a Mustang Shelby GT500.

4. Camping.  M persuaded me to buy a tent about 3 years ago.  We started off with a tiny 3 man tent but despite this I was instantly hooked.  We now have a large 6 man tent with electric, mini cooker, heater etc – a real home from home.  We didn’t get to go last year due to poor weather/ pregnancy/ newborn baby but I’m so excited about taking C on her first camping trip soon.

I just love being outdoors and being able to go for walks with the dog and sitting outside having a drink or 2 under the stars.  Its wonderful.

5. Walking.  I’m not a huge exercise fan by any stretch of the imagination but I love walking, especially when the weather is nice or I’m somewhere that has nice scenery.  I always walked a lot with the dog before I got pregnant but I walk even more now C is here.

6. Reading a book.  I rarely get chance to read a book.  In fact, I can’t remember the last time I finished an actual book but just the thought of it makes me smile!

7. A hot bubble bath.  Another rarity these days but I savour it when I do get chance to have one!

8. Getting a haircut.  I’m not very good with hairstyling so I love the days when I get my hair cut and styled and it looks fabulous!

9. Family meals.  We’re doing baby-led weaning with C and shes becoming as really good eater.  I just love seeing her face light up when she sees you coming towards her with some food and I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of watching her as she carefully works her way through everything we put in front of her. 

Its also good as we now sit down at the table as a family for our evening meal rather than sitting in front of the tv.

10. 5.30pm on a Wednesday.  Since returning to work after maternity leave, I work Monday to Wednesday so now Wednesday is the new Friday and my weekend begins.
