    Garlic bread and getting my hair cut are pretty high up on the list of things that make me happy too! I did write a list of 100 things that make me happy on an old blog years ago, it took ages to type out!

      Wow, 100 things would be a fun challenge! Yay for garlic bread and haircuts! Thanks Laura πŸ’•πŸ˜˜ xx

    What a great idea for a post, although I think I would struggle to come up with 50 things so well done! I love Peep Show and haven’t seen it for ages may indulge in some tonight if I can find it on demand! Fabulous post as always Bexa ❀️

    This is such brilliant list, Bexa! TBH most of your items would make me happy too (random adventures with Shaun excepted, no offence, haha!) but especially Only Fools and Horses, peach tea, summer evenings, and cheesy 80’s music. I wrote a couple of 25 Things That Make Me Happy posts last year and they were such fun to do. Reading your list has made me think I need to do an update now – watch this space! xx

    Random adventures, last minute holidays and train journeys are all my favourite things too, and surprisingly all travel-based haha!

    This is such an amazing idea!πŸ’•- I think it’s great to sit down and actually write down what makes you happy, so those thoughts aren’t all jumbled up in our brains… and easier to understand.πŸ’– Sometimes, it’s the little things that can put the biggest smile on my face. For example, cuddling up in freshly cleaned sheets and watching a little bit (far too much) youtube. Oh, and rewatching The Addams Family too many times! hehe..😘
    Great post Darling.. xoxo

    • March 20, 2018 / 8:46 am

      The little things in life can bring so much happiness πŸ’–. YouTube is such a good one! I can spend many happy hours watching vids. Freshly cleaned sheets is the best feeling. He he, its nice to chill out and watch programs that you love too 😍. Thank you for your lovely comment Emily 😘 xx

  17. March 20, 2018 / 9:11 am

  18. March 20, 2018 / 9:16 am

    This list made me smile so much! It’s great to identify things that make us happy. Last minute holidays and ticking things off to do lists are both brilliant πŸ™‚ I love so many of the things you’ve mentioned, lovely post Bexa! xx

    • March 20, 2018 / 10:54 am

      Aw thanks so much Alys! πŸ’– Glad you enjoyed the post and it made you smile ☺️. Last minute holidays are always the best 😍 and a completed to-do list is soo satisfying πŸ˜„ xx
