10 Things that have made me happy lately #2

Sometimes we have to take a step back and look at all the little things that have made us happy.  It’s about appreciating the smaller things that you let pass you by.  It’s good to pause and take note…
1) Working through my ‘to do list’ at work. There’s nothing better than ticking off the last item at the end of the day and starting a new list in the morning. 
2) The most amazing poached eggs I’ve ever made. Seriously, none of this swirl method or egg poachers. It’s all about the water. I love my poached eggs somewhere between runny and gooey and these were just perfection. 
3) Valentine’s Day. Receiving the most beautiful roses from somebody – let’s call him ‘The Northerner’ – and having a chilled out evening cooking M&S Steak and binge watching Suits and Marvel films. Feeling spoiled, happy and content all at the same time. 
4) Suits. Need I say more than Harvey. Reginald. Specter. 
5) Being taken to Cadbury World for the first time even though I’ve lived in Birmingham for most of my 25 years. What a deprived Brummie I was! 
6) My new room. I’ve loved filling it with things that remind me of all the good times in my life and chucking out all the things I’ve hoarded over the years. De-cluttering has given me a new outlook on what I need and don’t need to keep. 
7) Blogging with quality over quantity. In 2013/2014 I was so worried about my little blog being recognised that I’d try and post 3-4 times a week. It started to stress me out and looking back I feel like the quality of my posts suffered. I’ve learned to not worry about sticking to my schedule and to write about things that I want to write about.  Life is for living and if you don’t live it, what will you write about?
8) Pancake day. Nutella. That is all. 
9) Coldplay playlists. Full of their best songs; singles and album tracks and not being judged for listening to ‘Atlas’ on repeat, over and over because it’s one of the best ones!
10) Snapchat. Yes I’m so late to the party but I’m now one of those snapchat addicts that like to send pictures of everything to everybody I know.
