Listography - Top 5 things that make me happy

The subject for the Listography at Kate Takes 5 this week is Top 5 things that make me happy. It goes without saying that my family and friends are top of my list, but here are five other things that make me happy:

1 - Buttons. I love buttons. I love storing them in a tin, sorting them out, examining them and letting them slip through my fingers.

2 - The feeling you get when you have just finished exercising. You made the effort, you got through it, you are experiencing a natural high, and now you can relax for a day or two and eat something calorific.

3 - Putting the last piece into a jigsaw, especially a large complicated one. I don't have as much time for jigsaws as I used to, and if I were to attempt one it wouldn't last long before being trodden on/dribbled on/pieces going missing, but putting that last piece in is so incredibly satisfying.

4 - Ticking things off a to-do list, especially things which I've been putting off for a while.

5 - Receiving a comment on my blog. No, I didn't write that just to get comments, it really does make my day!

  1. That's a lovely collection of buttons. Are you going to use them for anything or just play with them :)

  2. I use some of them sometimes...but mainly they are for playing with. Most of the pretty ones came in the Cath Kidston button tin, there were loads in there!

    1. It is a great feeling, I try to remind myself of it whenever I'm struggling to get to the gym (not that I've managed it much lately, sleep has been a bit lacking recently)

  7. Oo I love button's too, have far too many of them though (a bit of a hoarder). Great list. :)
