Clean Bedding

Seriously, is there anything better than getting up to bed after a hard day and remembering you changed the sheets?

Wine O Clock

Okay, the only thing better than clean bedding after a hard day is Wine O Clock after a hard day! I say wine, but if I’m honest anything with alcohol content will do- Gin, Lager….Mouthwash, followed by clean sheets of course!


As a mum, one of the most important and yet frustrating roles is that of the photographer, but nothing beats the satisfaction of getting the Insta worthy shot!!


Total guilty pleasure. No shame… what do you mean teen soap?


In January, I made a resolution to read more books as a result of reading next to nothing last year! Ive actually been quite into non-fiction this year, which is a first. Why not check out my book reviews?

“I Love You Mummy”

There is very little better in life than those four little words: “I love you mummy”. In that moment, everything else melts away leaving only gooey smiles behind!


No matter the mood or general feel of the day, I can turn on the radio or put on the iPod and turn it all around. Especially when accompanied by singing and dancing!


Shoes are so much more than function. They give me confidence, they make me feel sexy and above all- make me happy! After all, Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life!


I’m not so sure whether this should be included here or whether in actual fact it should be included in a list of things that make me human? Regardless, I have a love affair with caffeine!


I bloody LOVE a quote! (check my Pinterest or Instagram!) No matter what happens, i’ll search for a relatable quote.  I think it helps me feel connected and can give a different perspective!

So, I’d love to hear your thoughts on my 10 things that make me happy, BUT I’d also love to hear what makes you happy! Drop me a comment to let me know! As this is a tag, I’d love it if the following people could join in (if they haven’t already!) But, If I haven’t tagged you and you would like to join in please do!

  1. Cathryn - Little Paper Swans

    This is such a lovely list. Photography, coffee and the I love you Mummy makes me so happy too!


  2. Lisa (mummascribbles)

    Clean bedding is so lush isn’t It?! I’m a tea girl over coffee! Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday

  3. Celine Bell

    Coffee would be top of my list – followed by wine. Followed by clean sheets (ideally when I’ve not had to make the bed myself).

  4. Talya

    Ahhhhh we have a lot of similarities here clearly great minds think (and are happy) alike! Thanks for linking this up to #coolmumclub lovely xoxo

  5. Fiona Cambouropoulos

    Yep, I can’t argue with these, they all make me happy too #BloggerClubUK

  6. Joanne - The Ealing Mummy

    Great list, sometime it is hard to remember as a parent what makes you happy because you are so busy trying to make your kids happy! You always need to do a few things for yourself X

  7. Sam, Memories and Mayhem Blog

    I agree with everything in this list! The feeling of clean bedding is just the best isn’t it and music always pulls me out of a bad mood. I would switch Hollyoaks for Greys Anatomy but that’s the only change I would make! #BloggerClubUK

  8. The mummy diaries

    I love clean bedding too and Hollyoaks, definitely not a teen soap
    The mummy diaries recently posted…Were does my lack of confidence comes from?My Profile

  9. The Mum Project

    Yes yes and yes. Wine is definitely the top of my list. Bear can’t say I love you yet but I’m sure that would be number one….maybe ; ). Thanks for sharing with #StayClassyMama!

  10. Wendy

    Love clean sheets! Really is the best feeling climbing into a clean bed after a long day. I also love coffee and books..I’m also partial to a good box set too xx #BlogCrush
