Things that make you happy
« on: May 12, 2009, 02:43:08 PM »
Just to counter the leviathan of doom and dispondancy that the "things that p*** you off" thread is turning into, how about the inverse - things that make you happy, or relax you, or make life worth living.

And if you want to say brown paper packages tied up with string, be my guest.  :angel:

Mine: Lying back in the bath, letting the water flood into my ears, closing my eyes and just listening to my heart beat.

Seeing my Wife and Son happy usually does it. They go horseriding every week and I like the smiles on their faces when they go shooting off into the distance, and when they come back they've usually uped it to laughing :lmao:.

Spending time with my Son, whether it's the weekly bowling, playing games on the XBox or just taking Smelly Dog for a long walk around the nearby Loch. There's going to come a time, probably sooner rather than later, that he's not going to want to be seen dead with his Dad, so I try and make the most of it while I can.

Going into work for nightshift and seeing there's nothing on the schedule for the whole night :boing:. Out comes the pillow and duvet and I go to sleep on the floor about midnight and get up at 0515. It's that warm feeling I get knowing I'm getting paid to sleep... :D It's even better when I do someone else's shift as overtime and get paid double...

Getting home at midnight after a day of listening to drunk people gripe about their hotel rooms, switching on my computer and seeing Roger's name highlited in green on MSN.   :boing: I've gotten to LOVE that little green light.   :yup: It means I get to see my sweetie on the webcam!


Long distance relationships can be very frustrating.  :whah?:

Internet Shopping!

I love E-bay.  You never know what you're going to get and you never know how much of a bargain you're going to get until the final second.  It's like gambling but without the horses...:mrgreen:.

Most things make me happy, the odd thing annoys me. But overall I have very little to complain about so the odd doom post I might make doesn't represent my life, simply a teeny section of a teeny bit of a day. I have a job I don't mind, pets I love, a chap who tolerates lead all over the house, disposable income and the freedom to go off and look at mountains when I want to. I feel pretty lucky and have seen a lot worse.

Being outside at 4 in the morning with a cup of tea as it is just starting to get light with no noise apart from birdsong and watching the baby rabbits playing on the grass. Even better if it's a clear sky with interesting cloud formations and numerous aircraft vapour trails criss crossing the sky - a chance to lose myself in thought for 15 minutes - bliss !  :yup:

A cup of tea and a home made ginger biscuit (or two).

A tidy house.

A good film.

... Oh, and I forgot tea! Iced tea, sweet tea, sun tea, and tea from the kettle! Several cups a day! Oh, and I suppose that crappy "tea" from Nestea and similar ilk could be part of the list but only to be drank under dire circumstances. Like being in a strange land without some warm water and a teabag or nine.
