Default Things that made / make me happy....

My sons being born and growing up healthy and becoming my best mates
My Mum for the way she struggled to bring us up, and the love & support she gives tirelessly

Then in no particular order.....

Walking my dog
Good company
My ipod full of my music
Bruce Springsteen's concerts & music
Buying a new gadget
A good book
Buying a DVD
Reminiscing about school / teenage days with old friends
Great sex
A tidy house with the windows open, letting in a summer breeze
Landing in Gatwick or Heathrow and going home
Photography
Blowjobs (
Dew on the grass on a sunny spring morning
Going to Upton Park and sitting in my season ticket seat to see West Ham play and singing Im Forever Blowing Bubbles
Tits

Over to you lot....

My children's laughter.
The smell of napalm in the morning.
Scrambled eggs and coffee.
Corona cerveza.

Ha ha!

Things that make me happy...

Walking on the beach, anytime
Puppies and kittens
Taking a long drive in my car while singing tunelessly to loud music
Barbeques with my crazy family
Lying by the pool with a good book and my ipod
A spring cleaned house
Long, hot, honey and lemon bubble baths
A gossipy lunch with my best friends
Flirty phone calls
Cups of very strong Yorkshire Tea
Sitting by the fire in a chalet in the snowy Alps with a glass of 18 year Macallans malt whisky
Fabulous sex
Being woken up by fabulous sex
Breakfast in bed cooked by someone else

Too many things!
