my happy list

I have so much to be happy about that some things are just not bothering me.
Im happy that when Mr TL got pulled into the ocean the other week he didnt drown.
He was fully clothed and it was stormy enough to frighten him.
 Even though he had his iphone is his pocket and we still havent gotten around to replacing it.
So forgive me if all the washing is piling up but im happy to let it sit there.  

Im happy letting the papers and junk pile up around me because at least im healthy and I can choose when I feel like attacking it. Some people dont have the energy or the ability to do the little things I take for granted.

Im happy that I can enjoy the pleasure of my sons company on days
when he should really be at school. Even if hes just playing COD
and wearing his thermals cos someone hasnt kept up with the washing.  Im happy that there is a gamers addiction hotline available for when we need it.
No, really I do love this person. (whoever he is.)
Im happy he kisses me on the cheek when he (finally) leaves the house lately.

Im even happy when there is no sunshine coming in and the blinds have broken again because someone pulled them down by hand instead of with the cord, as it means
there were movies watched late into the night and laughter to go along with it. 
Im happy just thinking of sublime thoughts about the family we will soon be enjoying having stay and the close family we have been enjoying lately.
 Happy because somehow summer hasnt hit and I was dreading the heat.
Happy I have my mother-taught ability to make my own clothes when I have a full weekend
like this one coming and I dont need to shop like a regular person for something new that
 I will really only half-feel-okay-in.
Happy this isnt a craft post and I have the opportunity to bore you senseless from a different angle for a change. Apart from the washing mention. 

I am happy that I have been inspired by this woman on more than one occasion.
Thanks for your happy thoughts Kate!

What a list!
I am so happy that you played along and I got to enjoy your list too.
I am happy that other people have laundries that look like mine (reality right!), I am happy and relieved that your Brendon is ok, I am happy to think that you have such a fab weekend ahead of you, and I am happy in the thought that I drove you to drink this morning with that little 69 scare. well, not actually happy just amused.
Thank for your happy thoughts lovely Wendy. XX

I'm happy your hubby is safe and that the washing is your not mine. I would even be happier to help you if I was there than I am to help myself. I am happy to have a son too even if he is like yours. lol Hope your happiness continues and that your guests behave themselves. Cherrie

Just today I was thinking how nice it was that summer seemed to be taking its time on arriving. We can both hope that it takes a few more details before rocking up!

I love your list. My laundry is never up to date and my house is never as tidy as I'd like, but I don't let it get me down anymore. I've accepted it as part of this stage of my life. So much happier now! Enjoy your weekend of sewing!
