Day 1: Ten Things That Make You Happy

And now for something completely different – I’ve decided that this month I am going to do a bit of a writing challenge – something that is not necessarily related to travel…

I found this challenge over at author, Belinda Missen’s website and thought it sounded like something fun and, for me, out of the box. It will mean revealing a lot more of myself than just talking travel would so here it goes:

Day 1: Ten Things That Make You Happy:

  1. Travel – I mean come on!  I had to include it on the list.
  2. London – whenever I know I’m going to London I just feel happier all of a sudden.
  3. Final approach to Christchurch – it means I’m home.
  4. Sunflowers – they just make me smile.
  5. The weekend – knowing that I don’t have to go near or think about work is always a happy day.
  6. Finally passing a Candy Crush Soda level that I’ve been stuck on for days! – it’s the little things 🙂
  7. Rainy days – as long as I don’t have to go anywhere of course.
  8. Taking photos – I like to think I’m ok at it but I enjoy taking photos nonetheless.
  9. Children’s laughter – a bit cliché?
  10. My family – I mean I wouldn’t be where I am today without them but any time spent with my family is a good time (even that one time there was an earthquake that ruined my mum’s 80th birthday – we still made the most of it!)

So there you have it. Did you learn something about me? Did I learn something about myself?

      1. Well don’t compare yourself to me… I’m on 2089! I have a problem. The first step is admitting it, right…?

          1. I wouldn’t be surprised… My aunt got me hooked about 4 years ago. I took a brief 5-6 month hiatus, but I play pretty much everyday.
