I really don’t believe that happiness has anything to do with being lucky.  If it was then there are huge chunks of my life when I have been very unlucky.  I also don’t think it has anything to do with things that happened in a previous life.  There is the old phrase that ‘I must have been really evil/bad in a previous life to deserve this’.  I also don’t think happiness is dependant upon the perfect circumstances, or having a problem-free life, or having everything that you want.

As I have got older I’ve learnt to appreciate small well thought out gifts. Gifts that I have a connection with and have been picked with some thought about who I am and what I like doing; things that will cheer me up. It isn’t always to do with the cost of an item. Something costing a few pounds can often be… View Post

This year I am hoping to continue with this little series of posts sharing 5 things I have lived each month. January to me always seems like such a long month. After all the fun and excitement December brings, January seems Such a disappointment. However, last month I did find a few things to make me smile! Afternoon Tea At Dunsley Hall Well what can I say?  An afternoon of cocktails and cake. What’s not to love? Pamper Time A little time spent getting my nails done always relaxes me. A Walk Along The Welsh Coastal Path This was when… View Post
