I was recently tagged by Kirsty from Winnettes to complete the 10 Things That Make Me Happy tag. You can check out her post HERE. I honestly forgot I was nominated for this and it was only due to flicking through Twitter that I remembered (sorry Kirsty!) opps! So here are my 10 things that make me happy:
1. MY DAUGHTER
Of course she is my number one on the list! She is my beautiful little girl who I cherish everyday (even through the tantrums!) and love unconditionally. She is a part of me, I carried her for 38 weeks and welcomed her into the world. Even though she is only 4 months old I feel I genuinely don’t know how I could live without her. She has completed our little family.
2. MY HUSBAND
Ah Tom. My dear husband and father to our amazing daughter. We have put up with each other for seven and a half years and recently celebrated our one year wedding anniversary. How we have not killed each other is amazing and honestly a huge achievement in itself. He is my rock and without him my life would be boring!
3. OUR FURRY CHILDREN
We do love our animals! Max our retrocker is a pain in the bum sometimes but he has the most lovely and gentle temperament. I can see him growing up with Jade and loving her so much. Stig our cat on the other hand only loves me! He was the first animal we got and marks the beginning of our family. We unfortunately lost our other cat, Coke (aka Little Girl), the other day in a RTA. She was the most friendliest and loving cat, I miss her everyday!
4. MY PARENTS
My parents have done so much for me and sometimes I wish I could show them how much they mean to me. I can always rely on them for advice, cheering me up and nicking their food. I love that they only give me advice when I ask for it and don’t try to tell me how to raise Jade. They tell me every time I come round how well I’m doing and that I’m an amazing mum. They are amazing grandparents to Jade and she absolutely adores them (especially her grandad!). They would love me to have another baby straight away 😂
5. GIN AND TONIC
Mmmmmm I love a good G&T! I’m off to Portsmouth gin festival with my best friend Rachel at the beginning of August and I cannot wait! I love trying different types of gin and on the plus side, I get a fab bowl gin glass to take home! Win win!
I love books! The feeling of delving into an interesting book and getting so lost in it that hours go by and you don’t notice is amazing. Unfortunately I don’t read as much at the moment but it’s not like I have much free time now Jade is here, however when I get the chance I’ll snap it up.
7. GREYS ANATOMY
My guilty pleasure! I have probably watch all 12 seasons about 5 times now because sometimes I just fancy a Greys Anatomy binge. I just can’t get bored of their storylines, however many times I watch it!
8. MAKE UP
Again, one of guilty pleasures I don’t have much time for but when I do, I lap up every minute. Before having Jade, I built up quite an impressive collection of high end and drug store make up. I religiously made up my face everyday and probably spent on average about 1-2 hours happily in front of my vanity mirror. Now I’ll be lucky if I remember to put mascara on most days.
I’m a bit of a hoarder when it comes to clothes! My favourite brand is Joules and i have many items of clothing from them. I would consider my style to be casual yet classic, i prefer a high collar/cuffed sleeves with skinny jeans/cigarette trousers with dolly shoes/brogues. I also have a few ‘I’ll fit into them soon’ clothes stored away like most women and I don’t have the heart to throw them away, I will fit into them one day?!
Tom and I do love going away on Holibobs, wether it’s abroad or in the UK. We don’t go away a lot as it can cost quite a bit but we save up and go away to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. We are off to Paris for my birthday in October and I can’t wait.
Viola! My 10 Things That Make Me Happy. I hope you enjoyed what I wrote and hopefully learned something new about me.
