15 Little Things That Make Me Happy

After all the stress of last week's post about feeling the pressure, I thought I'd start the week with something a little more positive, and the little things list was born. It is by no means exhaustive, I just let my mind ramble and these are the fifteen things that I thought of first. Enjoy!

1. The way Russell Howard says 'Wyclef Jean'.

2. Going back home and going to the pub with my friends, and everything being completely normal, as if it hasn't been months since we've seen each other.

3. In-depth Game of Thrones conversations with my brother.

4. When my mum and I are out shopping and she points something out, and then we both look at each other as if to say 'ew'. Mother-daughter telepathy right there.

5. Starting a book I've wanted to read for ages.

6. Finishing a book I've wanted to read for ages (although I also feel a little bit like this child).

7. When I mention a singer/band to my dad and he not only knows who they are, but likes them too. This is rare. Our latest mutual love is George Ezra, who played at Parklife. When I told Dad he went off on one about how much he loves Ezra's 'unusual voice'. Lovely.

8. How happy my dad is whenever he meets me at the train station.

9. Helping a customer in the Cancer Research shop where I volunteered over the summer, and knowing I've made their day a little easier. In fact, just volunteering in the shop makes it onto this list because there's so much to do and I like being able to help  it's such a worthwhile cause.

10. Wearing my favourite Ted Baker undies.

11. Browsing in the library, and having all the time in the world to do so. I can get lost there so easily (in the best possible way, of course. I bloody love books).

12. Having lunch with my nan. Fun for me, extra special for her, because it's company. We've always had a bond.

13. Mac 'n' cheese from Pork&Co.

14. Any food from Pork&Co tbh.

15. Tequila. (I know lots of people can't stand it, but I've never had a bad night on it; it just gets me all hyped up.)

What makes you happy? Let me know in the comments!
