  1. Oh I love our Eurovision nights!

  2. Such lovely things to be happy about! I agree with a lot of them but especially fresh bed sheets, lie ins & putting my pjs on. Oh dear they are all sleep related- its on my mind a lot atm haha x

  4. So many lovely things. I also miss 24!! I may attempt this. Love the positivity of this post.

    1. go for it, you'll be amazed at how many things you can think of! x

  5. Great Post! I too love Jack Bauer and 24! #MummyMonday xx

  6. I loveee Jack Bauer! I also love receiving a tweet from someone I stalk, haha. #mummymonday

    1. Lol its sad isn't it, Twitter is great for celeb stalking ;) x

  7. I do love a bit of Jack Bauer, but 24 got a bit silly towards the end don't you think?? X

    1. Yeh a bit, he did start to look a bit old at the end too didn't he! We watched the entire boxset over the course of a few months, we became a little bit obsessed with it!!

  8. Great list! I was nodding along with most of these. Ah Jack Bauer. I found Brody in Homeland was a good substitute but that's over too now, sob! Hope you are in nice clean sheets tonight!

    1. Ah yes Brody, he was Jack though!! My husband is watching alot of House at the moment but Hugh Laurie is no substitute either! xx

  9. I love all these 50 things that make me happy posts so good :) I loved writing mine. So nice to see the little things that make us happy on a daily basis.
