10 happy things

so i’ve been feeling low tonight. a blogger friend recently wrote a list of 10 happy things in her life, and so I thought I’d do the same, and maybe just maybe it would make me feel a little better.

So here goes!

1 Nitro
My wonderful furbaby Nitro always makes me feel happy. Whenever I am sad or down, all I have to do is call him to my side. He comes, licks me or gives me the paw, smothers me with doggy kisses, and thats it, I’m instantly happy again.

2 My niece and nephew
I adore them. My niece is 9 and my nephew is 4. They are the lights of my life. I love being an auntie. It brings me great joy.

3 Reading
A good book is always sure to make me happy. I love true stories, autobiographies and memoirs, stories about people overcoming things, animal stories, and a little fiction sometimes too.

4 Coffee
Yep, nothing better than a good cup of coffee. Starbux is my absolute favourite kind of coffee. I always say to myself I drink way too much coffee, but oh well, I dont care. It makes me feel good, and makes me happy.

5 Sunshine
I love when it is sunny outside. In ireland we dont get a lot of sunshine though. So I am always so grateful when it is sunny outside.

6 Friends
My friends mean the world to me. They are always there to pick me up when I feel bad, they are great listeners, they keep me sane on my most insane days. I love all of them, both my online and offline friends.

7 blogging
This blog, it means the world to me. I’ve made so many wonderful connections on here. So many wonderful people who like and comment to my posts. I appreciate all of you. I love it when someone writes telling me they can relate to something that I’ve written.

8 My sister
Me and my sister havent always been very close. But over the last 2 years we’ve become super close and our relationship really means the world to me now. She is 9 years younger than me, but she’s a wonderful sister.

9 Music
I love music, I am constantly listening to music, some of my favourite artists are taylor swift, pink, linkin park, katy perry, rihanna, etc. I have a huge playlist on my i phone, I also subscribe to apple music.

10 Making youtube videos
I love making videos. Again its like my blog, people relate to them, leave me wonderful comments and feedback and I absolutely love it. My youtube channel is not as active as my blog, but when I have the time, I do love to make videos. It makes me so happy.

What makes you happy? I’d love to know!


todays writing prompt, favourite memory?

its hard to just pick one. i have a lot of favourites.

however one that automatically comes to mind is the memory of being in disneyworld in florida with my partner Jess and we were walking along the foothpath at the caribbean beach resort where we were staying. we stopped and climbed into a hammock, we were swinging to and fro, giggling and chatting about how the resort was so beautiful. All of a sudden a group of ducks, baby ducks, began walking along, we got up to take photos, started walking towards them, and then, all of a sudden they started following us! It was sooo swee. 

uneventful rest of my day

the rest of my friday has been uneventful. again, i couldnt stay awake. i think i got overheated. i tried to sit outside in the afternoon but the tiredness got the better of me. i told mom i was going to go lie down for an hour. that ended up being 2 hours though.i woke when mom and my sis came back from grocery shopping. we all ate together. mom made a salad and she also made sandwiches for me because i did not want salad. she bought this gorgeous bbq chicken, it tasted so good. she also got this lovely wheat bread that I had my sandwich on. i’m doing really well health wise. i just had the wheat bread with beef and one slice with chicken on it for dinner. mom tried to get me to eat more but i said i had enough. i didnt get to do any exercise today though which i am kind of disappointed about. i asked mom if she wanted to go for a 15 minute walk but she said she was too tired. no worries though there is always tomorrow. my sister wont be coming over to moms tomorrow because she has to pack her cases for going on holidays next week. so it will just be mom and dad and me until sunday. we were going to go to a vintage car show on sunday but my sister said she felt tired after her week at work so we might just go to a local park with the kids instead. once i get my walk in tomorrow i’m good. i might go visit my friend in the afternoon too. my friend norma that is. i also have to finish packing for respite on monday. i’ve been watching tv for the evening and just relaxing. hope you’ve all had a good day today.

hot hot hot

yep, it is really hot here today, but i’m loving it. i’ve been out in the garden all morning with nitro. i started reading my new book, and almost fell asleep. i literally closed my eyes for a couple of mins and only for my mom asking me if i was going to sit up before i fell off the chair i would have probably fell asleep. i read 3 chapters of my book, the darkness within by lisa stone. it seems good so far. nothing like what i am used to reading. i have other books on the go too. i am still reading runaway girl by casey watson. that one is very good too. mom and my sister are going grocery shopping this afternoon. my sister is working until 2 though. she left the kids here with mom and dad. my sisters off on holidays next week. man i’d love to be her. she is going to portoriko for a week. i’ve been feeling incredibly tired for the past few days. i dont know if its just the heat, or if i am ran down, or what. but i slept good for the past two nights, yet yesterday when kristen left i lay down and slept for 90 minutes, and i woke in the middle of the night last night, couldnt get back to sleep so got up and caught up on some blogs for a while. eventually i was able to go back to sleep though which i am glad about. my mom said my patterns must be all wrong. she’s probably right. i thought it might be meds doing it to me but it really cant be, i’ve not started any new meds or changed the dose of any of my meds. mom asked dad and me what we wanted for dinner today. i told her i wasnt really hungry so a sandwich would do me. we had scrambled egg and toast for breakfast. its hard to eat when its really hot. she said she might buy chicken or roast beef and make sandwiches. thats fine with me, i like both of those meats. i plan on going back outside for a while later. i have some tv shows on my computer though, so it may be that i’ll watch some of those instead of going outside. if i stay inside i can stay cool. i might even listen toa podcast.
I want to wish you all a happy friday. I hope you have a great day.

Saturdays question of the day

so, i kind of laxed on asking a daily question for a few days, what can I say, life got hectic.

Well, since I’m experiencing heat exhaustion and being warm and not tolerating it very well I thought I’d ask a question surrounding hot summer days.

so my question to you is:

On a hot sunny day, what is your favourite way to cool down?
