5 things that make me smile

The world is little dark and gloomy right now. So we all need a reason to smile. Here are my 5 things that make me smile.

Its damp, cold and downright miserable. There’s protest going across the world and right now everywhere seem that little bit more dark and gloomy.  So I feel it high time we all find a reason to smile and to hang our head up high and goes out looking fabulous.

I’m finding 5 things that make me smile and I want each and every one of you to do the same. So comments in the box below on what make you smile. Don’t be shy and it might surprise you.

Getting into bed where the cover is all cold and it raining heavy outside.

I love my bed (who doesn’t?) and I love it more when I get into it and the duvet/cover is all cold. It makes me want to snuggle into it and make it my little cocoon. I also love snuggling into a cold bed and hearing heavy rain outside. I actually once brought a download of ‘rain’ sound, just because I love hearing the sound of rain. I find it so relaxing and make me feel all warm and cosy.

My Husband – Richard

Anna and Richard Nuttall

I don’t talk too much about him on here but he always makes me smile. He is honestly the kindest, funniest and sweetest person ever. He has a pure heart of gold and I think that is a rare find. Sure he drives me crazy and at time does my head in. But I wouldn’t swap him for anyone else.  I wake in the morning with a smile and go to bed with a smile. I think more people need a Richard (not mine – I’m keeping him thank you very much!) in their lives.

Rocking out to my music

This might or might not surprise you but I’m little bit of a rock chick. I know I’ve mentioned this before but I love listening to a lot of rock music. It so much more exciting then chart music (which drive me crazy as I hear it so often on the radio – there only so much you can hear little mix new song) and often better production. My favorite bands are Epica, Within Temptation and Delain. I love when I’m out putting my ipod on and just do my journey listening to my favorite songs. Thanks god for Spotify.


I love chocolate, like if there was a world eating chocoholic contest – I would win first place. That’s how bad I am. I would have a chocolate milkshake for breakfast and often eat a block of chocolate throughout the day. I’m surprised I haven’t turned into a block of chocolate myself. I once had a chocolate bubble bath. Yes, a chocolate bubble bath – complete with real chocolate bubble. It wasn’t that great and the smell was overpowering. But it hasn’t stopped me loving chocolate so frickin much.

A New RPG Game

I don’t mention this too much on here – but I’m a little bit of a gaming freak. I also little bit of an RPG freak. I love sitting down and playing my RPG games. Skyrim, Witcher, Dragon Age and off course Final Fantasy are all title I just LOVE playing. If anyone ask me what I do when I’m not attached to my desktop, I always answered that I would be on my PlayStation 4 playing a RPG game.

RPG – Role playing game

So those are my 5 things that make me smile. Now it’s your turn.

    I love this!! Sometimes I find when I am down it’s hard to be positive but we can always think of something that is good, and I like your ones!! Doona and chocolate sound good to me!! This Friday I am launching #findthegood and it’s just for this exact thing! Finding something positive in at least something each day!

    Lovely list Anna! We have that first thing in common – I love getting into bed with fresh cold sheets while hearing the rain ( sometimes I play white noise on youtube too) :). And my Led Zeppelin playlist always makes me smile!

    There’s nothing quite like being all cosy in bed when it’s horrible outside! #bestandworst

    Love taking the time out to share the things we’re loving. I do a link-up on Thursdays about things that I’m loving lately. I’d love for you to drop your link there!

    That second picture of your husband made ME smile too…what a goof! I think having someone (or many someone’s) around us who make us laugh is one of the most important things in life. As to a list…yours is pretty close. Bed – check. Husband – check. Chocolate – check. And while I do love music and games (albeit not RPG), I’d have to add my kids and God’s beautiful creation as my last two.

    I love 4 out of your 5 as I’m not really into gaming. Mine are my husband, my adorable grandson who is almost 3 years old, a beautiful blue sky (I live in Australia so it is full summer here and the sun is shining with magnificent blue skies, my morning coffee and yoga ritual which sets me up for the day and the end of a PT session when she has pushed me to the limit – I’m tired but happy! Thanks for making me think about smiling! A positive post.

  • Thanks for this, I needed a smile today! 🙂

    Love this! We all too often only focus on the negatives in life. I like writing down simple things that make me smile each day just to remind me of how great the little things are!

    I loved everything on your list and what a great idea to let people know you a little more. There isn’t much that doesn’t make me smile and laugh that’s just my way but I love my blanket too!

    This is a great list, i remembered when i was in therapy i used to write every day 5 things that i like or make me happy, and when i was feeling sad or overwhelmed i used to read the list and totally made me feel better
    Don’t know why i stop doing it

    I love the Final fantasy games too! And chocolate, chocolate would definitely be on my list! As would my husband and son, and the rain outside while I’m in bed not having to go anywhere. We are so similar! My other 2 would be watching a child “get” (or understand) something new while I’m teaching them, and massages lol!

    I love this. I can imagine that a chocolate bath is an overload on the senses. I kind of want to take one now. LOL

    I love rocking out to music! Dancing around my apartment with my headphones in will never get old. I hope I’m never too “mature” to do it.
