Happy Things #6

It's time again to share with you the things that are making me happy right now. It's been over a month since I wrote the last one, but I'm thinking I'll write these more often because I know you guys reading them like these - and I like writing them! I actually have a couple more happy things than usual this time around because I've been in a really good place and a lot of things have been putting a smile on my face! Let's get into it :)
  • Warmer days. It's so lovely having warmer days again! It's been a while, and I was getting very fed up of those icy cold days. Warmer days make for a happy Cat because I do better on warmer days.
  • Quiet time. I can't help but love lots of time for myself. I've been enjoying quiet evenings alone in my room recently and really appreciating it. It's simple and self-explanatory really.
  • 30 Day Challenge. A couple of weeks ago I took on three 30 day challenges at the same time. After reading up on them, I decided to take on three specific challenges in a bid to be a healthier and more confident woman. I'm half way through and actually today is the first day my rest days fall on the same day, so it's been 19 consecutive days of exercise so far. I've really been enjoying them, and sometimes hating them, but can't wait to share my story when I'm done.
  • Perfect makeup days. I've been enjoying some great makeup days recently. It's a little odd that I've had so many and I don't actually know if I'm doing much different. I tell you what though, perfect make up days make for good moods in the morning!
  • Reading again. I have finally picked up a book in what seems like years. I started to read The Year I Met You by Cecelia Ahern. I love her books, but I'm not sure on this story at the moment. I'm eager to read it and find out more about the lead character because I'm intrigued by the lead's story but it's not my usual go to kinda story. I don't know if I like her just yet, but I'm sure I'll find out soon.
  • Having things to look forward to. It's been lovely having things on my calendar to look forward to. Just this week I have tomorrow off work, a work party tonight AND Busted on Saturday! I have a few things in the coming month to look forward to too!
  • Good music in the car. Every month or so I make a new CD for the car. I'm enjoying quite a lot of music at the moment, so it is really love to have lots of songs to listen and sing along to on the way to and from work!
  • Pop Pips. You know those little balls of boiled sweets in lots of flavours? Yeah those. I bought a packet of sherbet ones earlier this month and then bought two bottles of it in Fizzy Orange and Lemon & Lime from my favourite sweet shop in Great Yarmouth. Now I've got some whenever I fancy it ♥ Nom. Guilty pleasure.
  • Doing different things. This month has been filled with some lovely days out and date nights. John and I just this month have gone to a new and different cinema experience, gone for a countryside walk, visited Great Yarmouth and gone to a couple of family things together. It's been a nice change to our usual routine!
  • The band Skillet having a new album soon. Back in my Emo/Myspace days I was obsessed with a band called Skillet. They stopped making music in 2010 I think, and now have released a new song and pre-order for their newest album! I'm newly obsessed with their new song, and I'm sure their album is going to be amazing too. Can't wait!
  • Once Upon A Time. I'm sure this was on my happy things post last time, but it's still here because it's been causing all sorts of emotions for me. I've cried, I've panicked, I've been super happy and completely heartbroken. I'm a bit confused about the last two episodes but I'm also intrigued to see where the story is going next! Fave programme right now ♥
What's been making you happy recently?
