  1. Ten Things That Make Me Happy.

    I am a very happy positive person and today I am going to tell you ten things which make me happy.

     1. My family.  I have a grown up family and also a granddaughter and we all get along very well. We live in opposite ends of the country but try and see each other as often as possible. We Skype each other as often as we can during the week. 

     2. Making jewellery.  I have been making jewellery for over 16 years now and will never get tired of making something new.  It is very therapeutic when you have an idea and actually make something from your idea.  This is a red rhinestone heart pendant necklace with matching bracelet which I made recently and is in my Christmas Collection.

     3. Reading books from my favourite authors and new authors whose books I have not read before.  Also I love reading other people's blogs.

     4. Blogging.  I have my own blog on my website where I sell my jewellery.  I aim to do a blog post once a week but sometimes it is a bit longer than this. I blog about my jewellery and anything that interests me.

     5. Walking barefoot on a sandy beach on a sunny day with blue sky. Also having a little paddle in the ocean. I have not been to a beach for a while now but am looking forward to visiting a beach soon.

     6. Drinking wine. Liebfraumilch is my favourite wine.  It is sweet and not too dry.

     7. Learning new things.  Knowledge is power and it does your brain good to try something new now and again.

     8. Cooking and experimenting with new ideas of what to cook for the evening meal.

     9. Having a meal out at a restaurant with a good bottle of wine such as Liebfraumilch.

    10. Eating chocolate.  This definitely gives me the feel good factor and makes me very happy.

    2. My blog helps me to connect with you all and hopefully reach a large audience.

    3.  My blog allows me to be part of the blogging community.  There are lots of bloggers out there blogging about what they are interested in and there are lots of fantastic blogs out there for us to read.

    4.  I joined Bloglovin a while ago and my blog posts get published on there too. There are so many different subjects that bloggers are writing about you are bound to find something that interests you.  You can sign up with an email address and get any blog that you are interested in sent to your inbox when a new one has been written.   You can also follow any person or blog on Bloglovin.

    5. I enjoy writing and telling you all what I have been doing and also what my interests are.  I love reading a good book and have my favourite authors which I will share with you when I do a book review.  I am always on the lookout for new authors and reading their books. I also love watching a good film and I will share my favourite films with you when I do a film review.

    6I am aiming to do a blog post every week but sometimes it will be nearer two weeks depending on what I am going to write about plus time just disappears so quickly.
