Because we can't spend every day winning the lottery and marrying Christian Bale... Yes ok, your SO (hopefully), bags, pets and kids, these make you happy but there are other things, little things that put a smile on your face and in your heart. Things that aren't frequent on the nation's happy list but work for you. Examples of the strange little things that nevertheless make me happy: * listening to newly downloaded tracks on my ipod, in my room in the dark all alone * seeing the new season adverts in the glossies for the first time (even if they are waaaaay over my budget) * finding a forgotten lipgloss in last year's bag. * coming downstairs and remembering I tidied last night so no doing it now (cheers me up no end) * waking up briefly during the night and realising it's Sunday. I'm sure my list is much longer, you get the idea, those stupid (at first glance) things that make you feel content to be just where you are.
