Happiness is…

So this evening I was going to blog about how I’m ridiculously tired (again) and this week seems to be going on forever and how unfair it is that the boyfriend is now away until Monday(!) but then I saw this list of stuff to be happy about over at Sleepyjane’s which she wrote as part of this competition by Little Miss Firefly and I thought why not cheer myself up by making my own list (plus I really wanted to be in the competition because the prize is truly fantastic. Seriously – go check it out).
So instead of another boring moan here’s a little bit of sunshine for everyone who’s suffering from the February greys…

Happiness is…

– Meeting friends for coffee, especially friends that you haven’t seen in a while
– Watching forked lighting from insid the house where it’s nice and dry
– Waking up with my boyfriend beside me
– Coming into the kitchen at work just in time to hear a song I like on the radio
– Hearing some (possibly) good news about a flat
– Waking up stupidly early then realising it’s Saturday and I don’t have to go to work
– Finding the perfect gift for somebody and actually having the money to buy it
– The look on that persons face when you give them said gift
– Chocolate brownies for breakfast
– The first daffodils of the year
– Finding incredibly cute cups that are only 75 cents each in the sale and buying them even though I have more cups than I will ever be able to drink out of
– A mailbox full of post, none of which is bills
– Fluffy socks
– A large cup of chai tea and a good book
– Watching Button Moon on Youtube and realising it actually was a good programme and I didn’t just think so because I was about five years old at the time
– A nice hot shower – and no need to rush to be on time for work

Now you tell me yours.
