Its the little things

Do you ever sit down at the end of the day and think to yourself where has today gone? Come to think of it  where has the week gone? We're always so busy with one thing or another its good to sometimes sit back and take note of the little things that make you happy.

Candle Light: My room is full of candles, theres nothing more relaxing than watching a film under the duvet by candle light.

These Russian Dolls given to me by my Nanna before she passed away. I've had them for as long as I can remember and they are unbelievably precious.

Getting into freshly washed bedding after a long day. Bliss.

Go The International Travel Game I'm not sure if any of you will remember this game, its called Go and it came out in 1961. My mum has always loved it and she managed to track it down on ebay. You travel around the world collecting Souvenirs, I love nothing more than sitting down with friends and family and playing a board game.

A cup of Tetley Tea, quite possibly one of my favourite things. Ever. I take it Strong: the colour of a California Tan with Skimmed Milk and Two Sweeteners.

I'm almost 23 and I'm still obsessed with Stationary. I have been my whole life and I think I always will be. New pads and pens make me so happy. The watermelon pen actually smells like Watermelon. This kinda thing is how I get my kicks haha!

Sneakily eating Peanut Butter straight out of the jar. Put your hand up if you secretly do this too.

Photos of Friends. I love taking photographs and really want to get better at it. Even more than this I love those rare absolutely perfect photographs that capture an amazing moment of you and the people who matter most.

A late night game of Scrabble. I love this game so much its unreal. This is mostly down to the fact that again it reminds me of my Nanna who I used to sit and watch spend hours playing Scrabble on her Spectrum computer.

Playing out in the Snow.

Coming in from playing out in the snow to a nice warm fire.

Do you like these photo posts? If so I'll continue to do more. What are the little things that make you the happiest?
