50 Things That Make Me Happy

The lovely Hayley who has a beautiful blog all about her gorgeous family (HayleyFromHome) tagged me (challenged me) to think of 50 things that make me happy. I feel I’m quite a pessimistic one might say slightly negative person so I thought this tag might be good for me – to see if I could actually think of 50 things.

50. Hearing my husband sing when he thinks no one is listening – to GnR or Type O Negative. Its priceless

So they’re my 50 things that make me happy. Its quite nice to remind yourself that its mostly the small things that make you happy & almost always things that are free too! Thank you to Hayley for tagging me – it wasn’t as hard as I thought to think of 50 things.

I’m going to tag Amy from Srslylou, Jennie from SailorJennie, Becki from lifelooksperfect and Sarah Temporary Secretary – I would love to know what 50 things make you happy.

Link below in the comments if you have done this tag, I’d love to read them.
