This weekend is my birthday so here are a few things that make me happy…what makes you happy?
A fresh bunch of simple flowers like tulips or peonies on my window sill
Quiet time to paint ceramics
Soaking up my son’s imagination and thoughts
New nail polish
A bag of pick and mix sweets
A really good hot curry
An evening out with my husband for a lovely meal (a rare treat)
Shopping with a good friend or my mum
A cold glass of sparkling wine on a warm evening
Staring a new book (and probably finishing it too quickly)
Being able to speak to people in their own language and everyone understanding each other
An early morning stroll in the summer but also a nice long lie in.
Chatting to my oldest friend..and feeling like a teenager again.
Looking at old photos and reminiscing
Talking about childhood and teenage memories with my parents
Discovering new places, even in my own city
Thinking about all the places we can take my son and his reaction to them
A big plate of delicious sushi
A cup of green tea in a peaceful cafe
Waking up to a perfect new snow fall
