happiness is....

'happiness is...' - each week we'll meet two lovely ladies to find out what happiness is to them.... if you'd like to take part please drop me an email :)


What makes you happiest: 
I would definitely say a day off. Don't get me wrong, I love both of my jobs but there is nothing like waking up (sleeping in) and not having a care in the world for a whole 24 hour period. I love having a slow morning, making coffee, catching up on blogs, doing some errands and chores and maybe meeting up with some friends for a drink or two! I also cannot wait for the warmer weather, that makes me happy :)

Do you have a 'happy place': 
This makes me think of a therapist saying 'Go to your happy place...' haha, but um I guess I kind of do. It seems cliche but my house is my happy place. I love going out but I can also be a bit of a homebody. I love staying in, making a yummy dinner and getting my snug on with Mikey and our cat :)

Do you have a favourite happy song: 
I have a bunch...so I won't name them all, I'd say ever since I heard 'Electric Feel' by MGMT many moons ago, that has been my go-to happy song since. I instantly get a smile on my face and want to dance!

What gets you past a bad day: 
This is a good question and one that I recently kind of 'conquered'. I used to let one little thing ruin my entire day...but that is SO silly and downright stupid, really...especially because it was always something so minuscule. Anyways, making a mental (or physical) list of all the things I am happy/thankful for...that always cheers me up!


what makes you happiest? Weekends at home with no commitments. All of us (my husband, children and I) together doing our own things yet harmoniously interacting. 
do you have a ‘happy place’?
Home is my happy place. But when I need a mental happy place it's my grandparents home. I grew up there, it was always my safe place. I was always no matter what, happy there - discovering the world and my childhood. I miss it very much but it's always in my heart and in my minds eye so I can visit whenever I want. Having a photographic memory is sometimes a very lovely thing!

do you have a favourite happy song?
If I had to pick just one it would be "Home" by Depeche Mode... it is my husband and I's very first song
what gets you past a bad day?
Chocolate, a ball of yarn, and if I can get it... a nap :) I may be an mixed media artist but crochet is something that eases me like meditation would someone else. It's mindless and mindless work feels relaxing and comforting.
