    The Happy List #26

    I had a choice between having a nap, working out or writing this week’s happy list. If you’re reading this, you know which one I picked. Honestly, I probably should have chosen the nap, right? I think this time of the year has caught up with me! It might be tiring, but it is fun. Here are the things that have made me happy this past week… November turning into December I have this big self imposed rule where I quite often refuse to do anything Christmas related until it is December (other than some early Christmas gift buying if I am feeling super organised).

We started out as friends, becoming crazy annoying lovebirds at the ages of 18 and 20 in 2002.
