10 Little Things That Make Me Happy #Tag

Recently I was tagged by the lovely Kelly over at Kelly Pendragon to take part in the '10 little things that make me happy' tag. One of my favourite quotes is "enjoy the little things in life for one day you'll look back and realise they were the big things", I just think this is so true! It's all to easy to forget or not make time for those little things that make you happy, especially when you have a busy lifestyle to contend with. But taking time out to keep yourself happy is vital! So without further ado, here are 10 things that keep me smiling..... 

1. Listening to music

I couldn't imagine a day without listening to music and I always, always have a song stuck in my head. I love my music loud, brutal and angry and yet at the same time I love Disney, movie soundtracks and Europop. I have music on as much as possible.... whether I'm out walking the dog or cleaning at home. I can't get enough.

2. Fresh bedding

I think this would be on most people's lists, am I right?! Nothing makes me happy like fresh sheets that have been dried outdoors, ironed and even starched. Changing bedding takes forever but in my eyes, it is so worth it!  

3. Watching Disney vlogs

I'm always thinking about the next Disney holiday and watching Disney vlogs on YouTube keep that excitement going whilst i'm holiday planning! Some of my favourites are Justin Scarred/LiveFastDiePoor, Frances Alicia, Francis Dominic, Adam Hattan, Ellie Steadman and Tim Tracker. I love watching these in the evening! 

4. Naps

If I can find time for a nap during the day then I really feel like I am winning at life. I blummin' love sleep! Obviously this rarely happens now as kiddo's napping days are firmly in the past! 

5. Walking the dog

She might move as slow as a snail sometimes but I love walking Elsie! Even more so when we can get out to a park or somewhere she can explore off lead.

6. Peanut butter and jam on toast

I am a toast fiend and for me, not much beats peanut butter and jam on thick white toast! It's definitely a favourite snack of mine.

7. An empty laundry basket

You can tell I'm a mama, right?! I love that feeling when all the ironing is done and everything has been put away in it's right place. An empty laundry basket pleases me way more than it should! Of course, it never lasts long though! 

8. Holiday planning

Whether it's researching the next trip, looking at restaurant reviews, watching vlogs or reading blog posts.... I love planning holidays! I have a wish list as long as my arm of places I'd love to visit (that's another blog post, right?!) and I'm always dreaming of all the new places we might get to explore.   

9. Decluttering

Always! I'm definitely not one of those people that sees an empty space and wants to fill it.... in fact I'm quite the opposite. I find great satisfaction in donating a bag of belongings to my favourite charity shops or posting out eBay sales. It's a mammoth task but with each thing that leaves our home, I feel so much happier!

10. A good cup of tea

Just before bed.... yep, I'm strange! Or when somebody makes you a cup of tea just how you like it. Or when you visit a cafe and they give you a huuuuuge teapot. I l o v e tea!

Thank you for tagging me Kelly! I'd love to keep this tag going so if you're reading this and would like to take part then please do! Send me your link when you have published your post, i'd love to see what makes you happy too!
