What Makes Me Happy Tag


Thanks so much to the lovely Nicki @ Secret Library for tagging me in The Happiness Tag! It’s so easy to focus on the negative, sometimes you forget to focus on what makes you happy!

This post has no rules (no rules make me happy!), it’s just a fun post to show off all your happy things in life.

List 5 things that make you happy


I love that moment in the evening when my cat is ready for a nap and chooses my legs as the best spot :-). I have a cat on my lap and a book in my hand and that makes me quite happy 🙂




There are shower people and there are bath people and I’m the latter, there’s no doubt about it. I sometimes try to take a book or my e-reader with me. When I don’t I often start reading what’s on the shampoo bottle or whatever’s in reach.



A bit of sunshine does a world of good! It changes people here when the sun comes out, I’m telling you.



I like other drinks too, like champagne or tea or a nice glass of white wine, but a day without coffee, no I can’t imagine that :-).



This list wouldn’t be complete without books.  Books have made me happy for as long as I can remember, even as a small child I was attracted to books. It helped that I didn’t have any brothers or sisters too and that tablets didn’t exist yet ;-).



List 5 songs that make you happy

I love pop, rock, blues, merengue, instrumental.. and there are so many cool songs, it’s so difficult to choose. But what makes me really happy is when I can sing along. I must be getting old but I can sing along with I Will Survive, Staying Alive and Abracadabra :-). Here’s just a few that I found on a list of 125 Happy Songs. You can take your own pick. Lazy Song by Bruno Mars isn’t on this list but I just had to add him of course. Have you seen that ‘monkey’ clip of his :-). Instant happiness!

  1. This tag and your answers made me think about the good things! 🙂 Sunshine is so totally important to be happy… and you don’t even realize it until you have to live in rainy, dark, clouded over Ireland 😀 hahaha…
    As for shower vs bath? I’m a complete shower person. I could not stand taking a bath, I’d get restless.. for that reason I never was able to sunbathe either… hahaha, even though there would be no difference if I sat on a couch reading a book or in the bath reading a book… 😀
