things that make me happy


watching my newly engaged son with his fiancee...
they talk every moment of the day


fixing random rock walls...
 even if its in a car park in northern Ireland and ill possibly never see it again


having only my dog for company....
hes very quiet


watching my son skate...
even if he does get disappointed for not landing it


having a nice tidy kitchen to stare at...
 for longer than half an hour


jumping in the pool with my kids to take strange underwater photos ....
even when we laugh til we swallow water



(gratuitous)

knowing Ive been to Paris...
while wearing a vintage fur coat my husband found for me while I was asleep

standing immersed in ancient gravity defying architecture...
even though I was soaked through from a freak Barcelona downpour

this man eating...
hes a real foodie and he loves to cook for me


seeing a rainbow appear when we had just celebrated our 25th anniversary of the day we met


having a son who loves to dance...
and looks pretty damn good in a suit I might add

knowing that out of all of the photos....
 my son chose to put this one of us on his facebook profile picture


ps. let me know if youd like to see more from the bottom of the pool.
We have about 100

oh, i love this post! these things are all wonderful reasons for you to be happy - i feel like the happiness has rubbed off on me too. Thanks! I would definitely love to see some more bottom of the pool shots, what great fun that must have been. was it a disposable underwater camera you used? they are such great fun.
and thanks for leaving such a kind comment on my blog - felt a bit funny talking about myself so much...
p.s your family looks adorable. and you sound like an awesome mum!

oh i clicked on the link - AND AGAIN it made me so happy. You are your disgustly good looking family...I want to hug you all! group hugs! With the dog too! (what a fine snout by the way. I like a dog with a good looking snout. We used to call my favourite pet snouter...poor snouter passed away in sept...but this is a happy comment not a sad one) Group hugs in the pool even?
