Would you like to win some flowers?

Would I be right in thinking that you would be really happy if someone sent you flowers?
Well the wonderful Miss Pickering is celebrating the 3rd anniversary of the arrival of The Hound and her 351st post on her rather lovely blog.
Pop over and leave a comment for a chance to win.
But be quick because I've only just discovered this and entries close at 5pm today.

The car was full of dogs and kids
(who always make me happy, well almost always)
but I needed to stop at the shop for a pint of milk.
And there it was in all it's red and yellow retro glory,
just sitting on the counter,
waiting to be purchased and then consumed - a
Could I resist? Of course not.
And it was delicious, all caramelly and melty in the mouth delicious.

That Caramac made me happy.
The childrens' Caramacs' also made them happy
but they reckoned they could have been happier
had I bought two each!
So, today, what makes you happy?

It's all about the little things

So I think this blog is going to be all about the little things that make me happy.
Well mostly because some big things just have to be shared too,
don't they?
Little, inconsequential things that maybe one takes for granted
but they actually make one happy.
Things like:
My morning cuppa - Tetleys' in a big pink mug.
My afternoon tea - Lady Grey in a vintage bone china cup and saucer.
The first plum of the season that I picked fat and juicy straight from the tree yesterday.
Getting comments on my first post - thank you, thank you, thank you.
The Amazon delivery containing that book, you know
the one that you've wanted to read for simply ages.
Discovering that this blog has followers - thank you, thank you, thank you.
Eating an egg laid by your very own hens.
That daisy in the lawn, Battenburgh cake and....
Oh so many things that make you happy.

What makes you happy? - First Post

Writing the first post on this my new blog makes me happy as will getting any comments at all.

Sipping tea whilst I write is making me happy.

And I can't begin to tell you how rediculously happy finding this daisy growing
in my lawn has made me.

Welcome to my new blog, I hope you'll come along for the ride
and maybe share what makes you happy.
