Over the past week or so, I have noted down anything and everything that has made me smile or cheered me up – in the hope that I can refer to this post in future, when I am feeling a little low. So here goes:
My boyfriend, my family, my dogs, my lizard, my cuddly mammoth called Marth, my cuddly orangutan called Obie, elephants, animal paws, all other animals,
cuppa’s (with Yorkshire Tea), cacti, drawing, knee socks, new paint brushes, my camera, autumn leaves, crisp mornings, sunny evenings, books, sunsets, David Attenborough, David Attenborough’s voice, when my makeup looks good, when my eyebrows look good, when my hair looks good, music, Uncharted, good grades at uni, freshly painted nails, freshly changed bed sheets, Pitch Perfect 1, completing a run, phoning someone without panicking, when someone knows what heterochromia is,
when someone buys a painting, Wollaton Hall, Quorn chicken nugs, Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, Luther, the adverts that sponsor Emmerdale (especially the one that’s like ‘you know when you go past hungry’ in a Yorkshire accent), the colour burgundy, #TalkMH, hearing the owl that lives in the church next to my flat,
Netflix, Catfish: The TV Show, the line “He shouldn’t have called me a fat Kelly Price”, the reaction to ‘#JustGoForAWalk’, countryside air, spiced rum with lime, sea breeze, museums, travelling, the tree outside my flat, photography, Belgium, Belgium beer, Delirium Bar,
Fred Perry, getting tattoos, my sarcasm, The Great British Bake Off, getting my student loan, my car, long walks, nights out, singing (badly), blankets, Winter coats, late nights, early nights, Sheldon Cooper, Asda shop delivery, comedians, stationary, brand new notebooks, the ‘coo’ sound that pigeons make, red hot showers,
when Spotify gives me 30 mins ad free, Game of Thrones, walking through crunchy leaves, driving at night, the smell of books, signing a good petition, putting the Christmas decorations up, waking up at 6am on Christmas morning (still), when carpets or rugs are like really squidgy under your feet, cinema date nights, swimming in the sea,
when my Nannan or Grandad have one too many shandies, people crying because they are happy, when I cry because I’m happy, when you watch a sad film and you cry a lot but then you feel all cleansed afterwards because you cried a lot, when babies laugh, when bar staff automatically give you a straw, dark lipstick, beards, Sheffield, the way your hair feels after a cut, You’ve Been Framed, slippers, when old clothes still fit, when baby animals fall asleep stood up, Toy Story, The Full Monty, getting a pointless answer on Pointless, the smell of acrylic paint and salad cream.
