50 things that make me happy

So I was tagged by the lurvely Becky over at 3princessesand2dude, she's my bestest blogging bud and quite frankly this came at a really good time. The last couple of weeks have been TOUGH, T hasn't been sleeping and he's been very trying when not asleep, combined with The Hubs being around more I've felt a little stifled, so this came along and allowed me to stop and assess the situation.  I'll be honest I probably could have thought of 100 things so it was difficult to keep to 50 a few from the original list didn't make the cut.

So thanks to Becky for making me stop and think ;)

1. T sleeping longer than 3 hours at a time.
2. Seeing The Hubs when he's been away. 
3. Family adventures. 
4. Sitting round the table when we're all together, eating, talking & playing. 
5. T's smile when he wakes up happy. 
6. Fresh bedding. 
7. A tidy house. 
8. Seeing my dog get excited when I got home from work (I miss this so much!)

  1. Girl, I am so with you on so many of these, especially beautiful flowers and exploring new places. Everyone sitting around the table for meals and just generally chatters and having fun is something I am so keen to get going. I just don't have the space at the moment :( But when (if it ever actually happens) we move out, we're getting a big table and chairs, even if it leaves us skint! Thanks for the tag, wonderful. xx
