50 Things That Make Me Happy

I have to say it's been so lovely seeing so many bloggers talking about the things that make the happy recently. It's such a positive thing to write about and I'd love to read your lists of happy things! I have a lovely book called 14,000 things to be happy about that John bought me for Christmas; and when I'm feeling a little down, I like to pick it up, flick it to a random page and just read them. It's lovely how you can find so many things to appreciate and be happy about no matter how small.
Now me? I love writing my happy things series as per usual, but I thought it would be lovely to join the bandwagon and write about 50 things that make me happy all the time rather than what's making me happy right now. I hope you like this post ♥
