I have been feeling a little bit sad of late so this is a wonderful idea for some positive thinking. It also gives you the chance to find out a little more about me. So here are my 10 things that make me happy:

It also gives you the chance to find out a little more about me, so here are my 10 things that make me happy:


My Children

Finlay made me a mummy. Even though he is probably the naughtiest little boy I know he is so full of character and love. He has a wild spirit and not a day goes by that he doesn’t get into some sort of trouble. It doesn’t matter how naughty he has been though, every night before I go to bed I give him a goodnight kiss, watching him sleeping so peacefully makes my heart melt.

Emmie only recently joined the family, but she made it complete, she is a bundle of calm happiness in a whirlwind of mayhem. Always smiling, always happy. They have both made my dreams come true.


Chris, where would I be without him? The father of my children and the man I have chosen to spend the rest of my life with. Sometimes I want to bash him and I’m pretty sure sometimes he wants to bash me! We have our ups and downs, but as long as we have each other, I know we’ll be happy.

My Cats

I say Cats, but in reality it is now cat. We lost our Ginger buddy Milo, a few months ago but he is still very much part of our lives. He left such deep beautiful pawprints in my heart he will never be forgotten. We are left with our little posh pedigree, Sebastian who is an Havanna Brown Oriental Shorthair. He is so funny and cuddly and am so glad he is part of our family. I am so thankful that both of these boys entered our lives, they have given me some of my happiest memories

St Lucia

Ahhhhh St Lucia, the Carribean life. In 2007 I spent 4 months living and working in St Lucia recording data on an endangered species of whiptail Lizard for my MSc dissertation. I have the fondest memories from these 4 months, it was such a big adventure. It was before I had responsibilities, life was so worry free, working, meeting wonderful people and drinking cocktails on white sandy beaches watching the sunset nearly every evening, I love St Lucia!


Any Chocolate will do I love it all. I could quite easily polish a huge bar all to myself. In fact I hate sharing choclate, I may smile and offer you a bit, but inside I’ll be cursing you if you accept, haha!


I just love the buzz of summer,Sunshine drinking, BBQ’S, Social gatherings.  Everybody seems extra happy.  When everyone else is happy, it ultimatley rubs off on you, Summer happiness is contagious. Happy summer days, I love them. Summer is the best season (….and its my birthday!).


This planet is amazing! It has so much to offer and it is so important that we look after it. Without Nature I think all our lives would be quite drab and dull, how very sad. I feel happy when I am out and about, the sounds, the colours, the diversity and to top it of, its completely free, Now that does make me happy!

My Health

I think Health is something we all take for granted, especially when we are well. Thankfully, apart from the odd minor thing, I have been fortunate to have my health. So having my health makes me very happy and appreciative. My heart goes out to those that don’t.


How lucky are we to live in a time where we can document everything?! I know cameras have been around for some time now, but I remember in the 80’s/90’s not knowing what you got until you had your film developed. Half would be rubbish!! Now we can capture and store everything instantly at the click of a button. It makes me so happy to think I can look back at my children growing up and not have to forget a thing.

Ed Sheeran

OMG I realsied recently I have a huge crush on Ed haha. Although I’m not technically old enough to be his mum, it feels slightly wrong, but that voice. Yes Ed, you make me happy!!

I now tag these lovelies to share their happiness:
