Listography - Top 5 Things That Make Me Happy

The lovely Kate at Kate Takes 5 is to thank for this blog post. On the current happy trend, I just couldn't resist taking part in her Listography call for the Top 5 things that make me happy.

I have a feeling number 1 will be a strong runner for the most frequent answer (well, not that everyone loves my girls, but maybe 'our own children' could be the the winning answer?!).


1. My gorgeous girls. Of course they drive me to distraction too, but you can't have the smooth without the rough, eh?! Or the up without the down, or the pancake without the egg.... OK, sorry, just wittering now...

2. Sunshine on a winter's day. So good for mood-lifting.

3. Having a good old chin-wag catch-up with friends, old and new.

4. Being in an airport on my own, no rush and no kids to be responsible for (I mean, obviously I miss them, but... bliss).

5. Fry's Chocolate Cream. You just can't beat it. Sigh.
 


That's it. Short and sweet, just like Kate said. Hope everyone can go away and think of 5 things that make them happy on this beautiful sunny winter's day?

  4. I like travelling - and did it on my own again for the first time in a long time the other week. There was something very enjoyable about the lack of responsibility!

    1. I actually think it's the total peace... which sounds strange when you think you're out there with thousands of others, but it's just your own head space again!

  7. I'd go for all of those except the airport one - airports just stress me out totally, if I never flew again it would be too soon!

    1. well yes, stress level = sky high once on the plane (see what I did there??!) but I love airports!

  8. I totally agree about the travelling alone. I know it will happen again one day... I have never had a Fry's Chocolate Cream. I have only ever seen their Turkish Delight both in New Zealand and Singapore. I am intrigued.

    1. OK, will now edit post to show a pic of it... maybe they'll send me some with all this free advertising?!

  9. Oh so agree with your number 5!!! For me, it's hard to leave the house and say good-bye, but I know that once I'm at the airport and I can actually put the headphones and turn the ipod on, I feel like myself again! And what's this? I can stroll around the Duty Free at my own leisure? And actually go to the toilet on the plane hassle-free? Luxury!!!

    1. Exactly. Although I do seem to remember once I left the plane toilet door open... ooops. Old/post babies habits die hard I guess ;)

  10. Love your list!
    I haven't had Fry's chocolate cream in years...might have to remedy that!!

  11. Do it! Do it! Although hang on, that means there'll be one less for me, so maybe.. don't do it!

    1. a-ha but would it be your first choice? Or will you reach for plain old dairy milk? Or quite frankly, whatever someone shoves into your hands??!

  13. I agree with all your items except the Fry's Chocolate Cream. Sorry but it has to be Toblerone.

  17. Oooh traveling alone, don't think I've done that since children (not in an airport anyway) but I can imagine that would be fabulous - even a quiet car journey can be bliss at times! x

    1. When I'm in the car alone, I tend to forget that I'm allowed to choose the music myself these days...!

  18. Never tried or heard of Fry's before now! Have to agree with the sunshine one as well! Nothing like a bit of summer glow to lift the mood!

    1. Find one, you won't be disappointed :) Summer glow... that has made me think body lotion, fake it asap!

  20. Fry's - do they still exist then? I do like after eights; very hard not to eat the whole box! Do like a decent chin-wag as well - always feel happy afterwards. Deb
