10 Simple Things that Make me Happy

I've been tagged twice now, by Life in Yonder and Arctic Mum Blogs so here it goes for 10 simple things that make me happy:

1. Cold, sunny winter days but thinking of spring
2. The smell of the sea and the breeze (or usually in Scotland the gale) on my face at the beach near home
3. My friend's little boy Kelvin giggling with me and hearing him say Diane
4. Being outdoors with friends destroying the countryside all in the name of conservation
5. A good book
6. Knitting! Even more so, knitting group
7. Running (or after running to be precise) - I stole that one from Arctic!
8. Laughing out loud
9. Spending time with friends and family
10. Travelling

Anyone else want to play......

PS Going for the spring look in the blog header in the hope that it encourages spring to hurry up and get here! I was fed up with the frozen icy river!

The sunshine was terrific these two days in Norway and I told myself now, it is springtime. So, I went out without hat and gloves, oh my, it was cold and it blowed quite a lot:)

Thanks for the sharing. No.2 makes me start to miss my life in Singapore...

yes its a small world after all, My sister lives in the USA for a little while, but when we are on skype it feels like she's right next to me. Love your little creatures :)

A lovely, spring-like post. My husband and I were just extolling the joys of a well-made cupcake today. And as for your knitting...just wow! I wish I had that talent. I could make so many things for my little one.
