Things that make me happy.

Map of Ayrshire, ScotlandImage via Wikipedia

Sashindoubutsu has asked me to name six things that make me happy and tag six others to carry it on, so here goes.

1) receiving the great reviews from the people who take time to read and comment on my blogs.

2) Walking along any Ayrshire beach on a nice clear sunny day, admiring the views across to Arran.

3) Watching the flora bloom from buds to flower between spring and summer.

4) Driving my SAAB.

5) Waking up each morning to the changing views out of my window of the hills and forest beyond through the four seasons.

6) The most important one of all. Being reunited with my first and only love after a period of 38 years apart, where life put 6,500 miles between us but could not quell the burning love we had for each other.

I am going to tag the few people who I think will not mind joining in.

1) Ann Brien. (2) The fortunes (3) AJJohnson (4) ghunibee (5) papercages (6) HeatherD.
