Things That Make Me Happy

Very often it's the simplest of things in life that make me happy. Those little things that I can sometimes take for granted and other times I've had to raid my penny pot in order to have a little treat! Well, a girl's got to have a few treats, right?
I've always loved writing and have kept a diary for years where I've written down what's made me happy on that particular day, as well as what's made me really angry or upset. It was while I was reading through some old teenage diaries a few weeks ago that gave me the inspiration for this post, so I thought it would be quite nice to share what things make me happy throughout the year.

So here goes:

1.A warm cup of tea in my favourite mug
2. A warm soft towel after a shower
3. A freshly made bed with cotton sheets
4. New Pyjamas
5. Sunday night pamper session at home

6. Listening to my cat, Pepper, purring
