10 Little Things That Make Me Happy #Tag

19:17 Kelly Wheelhouse 3 Comments

I have been tagged by the blogger Reclusive Fox to take part in the '10 little things that make me happy' tag. I do find it important to think about the little things, those parts of life that you may not dwell on in the moment, but looking back they fill you with so much joy. As I mentioned in my previous post, sometimes you have to take a step back and look at life from a wider angle. This tag seems like a perfect opportunity to pause for a moment and think about those little things in life that make you happy.

1. Seaside sunrises and sunsets- Until last year I'd never seen a sunrise on the beach before. When I went on holiday in Wales, Justin and I woke up stupidly early and headed out onto the beach to watch the sun come up. It was one of the most beautiful things I'd ever witnessed, and I even got to see the fishing boats being towed into the sea by a tractor.

2. Fireworks- I think fireworks are lovely to watch, but it's even better when it brings the family together. Last year we had our own little display for the first time in years, and it was lovely to be spending time together having a good laugh.

3. Kitty cuddles- My favourite animal ever is a cat, they are so freaking adorable! I have two of my own, Billy (1-year-old) and Daisy (6 months), and I love having cuddles with them both. Billy is the more cuddly of the two- laying on top of me first thing in the morning purring in my face.

4. Warm sunny days- Ask anyone who knows me well, and they will know warm sunny days are what I live for. I'm the sort of person that feels miserable when the weather is bad and feels like I'm in paradise whenever the sun is shining.

5. Listening to music- I don't go a single day without listening to music. There's nothing more enjoyable than turning up a good tune really loud!

6. Binge-watching TV shows- I don't get to do this so often anymore, but I love watching shows on Netflix, Prime, TV, etc. Right now some of my recommendations are- Dark Matter, Once Upon a Time, iZombie, and The 100. feel free to check them out! 

7. Walks through the countryside- I always fill with joy when having long walks through the countryside. It's a nice way to spend time with Justin and it doesn't cost a penny! We both enjoy doing photography, so it gives us something that brings us closer together. 

8. Spontaneous trips- Due to Justin and I working so much we don't get to do this often, but it's awesome to wake up in the morning and decide to go on a last minute trip somewhere. With me, the trips are usually to Nottingham or Skegness as they are two of my favourite places to be. 

9. Technology- I'm an absolute geek when it comes to technology! Laptops, cameras, stereo systems, gaming consoles, headphones, mobile phones, etc. I love them all! Wherever I go I always enjoy looking at new technology, and occasionally purchasing it. 

10. Steam Trains- Okay, so this one may seem a bit random, but seeing steam trains make me so happy! I've always had an interest in trains, but steam trains, in particular, have a special place in my heart. I've travelled on steam trains a few times on holiday in Somerset on the West Somerset Railway and it's the most magical experience.

I'd love to keep this tag going, so I've decided to tag some bloggers to take part themselves. Feel free to take part even if I don't tag you!
