Ok guys, it's Monday. January feels like it's lasted about 10 years so far and payday still isn't here yet, so I thought I'd try and inject a little joy and positivity into proceedings. It's been a little while since I've done a list post (or y'know barely a month but whatevs) so it's about time I gave my brain's list making muscles a little work out:

  • Joseph. Corny but I bloody love that boy
  • Harry Potter
  • Crisp, clean white sheets on my bed
  • A good skincare routine
  • My electric toothbrush
  • Having a motivating day in work
  • Lighter mornings and evenings (but equally darker mornings and evenings when we get close to the end of the year cos I'm a festive bitch forever)
  • Listening to old music
  • Painting
  • Finding a random pound coin or ten pound note in a forgotten bag or pocket
  • Visiting home
  • Getting my nails done
  • The atmosphere of the city
  • London in the summer
  • Being out in nature, walking in fields and breathing fresh air
  • The beach
  • Visiting new countries
  • The possibilities that a new year brings with it
  • My little dogs, and in particular my baby Freckles
  • Cuddles with Freckles
  • Horse riding
  • A really great playlist
  • That feeling you get after a really good workout when you could take on the world
  • Seeing money in your savings account for a change
  • Paying off my credit card
  • Planning holidays and the future
  • Buying new clothes and planning blog pictures
  • When a blog post is really well received and your hard work feels completely worth it
  • Learning new editing tricks for Youtube
  • When my boss praises me for a good bit of writing or something he really likes in my work
  • Netflix and in particular the feeling when you discover a new series to love
  • Getting lost in a drawing for hours and hours and not even feeling the time pass
  • Reading
  • The 1975
  • Warm drinks on cold days
  • Cheese
  • Being tattooed (although the healing process sucks ass)
  • New hair
  • My vinyl player and finding a favourite album on vinyl
  • Getting organised, making lists and setting targets
  • Redecorating
  • Yoga and meditation
  • Irish dancing
  • Seeing my favourite bands live
  • Comfy pjs and my favourite book in bed on a Sunday morning
  • Not setting an alarm
  • Eating a really healthy meal
  • When my anxiety doesn't bother me for a day and I actually feel 'normal' for once
  • Getting into bed after a long day in the office and getting a good night's sleep
  • This blog and you lovely readers, always
