    I think I’ve read about eight of these happy lists so far and I never get sick of them. I think I’ve seen a spotless/clean house on six lists including mine haha xx

    Oh my flipping goodness that cake! If I had that cake in my life, I would be happy, the other 49 things are irrelevant ;) seriously though, I loved reading this. Thank you so much for the tag. We all have so many things to be grateful for and it’s easy to lose sight of them when there’s moaning to be done.xx

    Thanks so much for tagging me! I’ll give it a go but I have no idea if I will be able to think of 50 things ;)

    I love Pick n Mix sweets too but I can’t have them anymore. Stupid gelatine! I miss sweets.

    I love your new profile photo by the way. Your hair looks lovely :)

    I love these lists, there are always things on them that make me smile. And isn’t it wonderful that they are often full of life’s simplest pleasures? I’m going to write my own soon. Oh, and I love the look of that cake! xx #TheList

    What a wonderful list! I can relate to so many of these, not least watching my children flourish. 50 seems like such a huge number until you start writing them all down! Fabulous choice for a meme.

    Even when we have everything we need in life it is nice to remind ourselves how lucky we are. I know I have to do it on a regular basis. Great blog post idea.
