6 uninteresting things that make me happy....

I have been tagged by and her blog is one of my favourites.

I have to list 6 uninteresting things that make me happy ~ so here goes....

1 My three favourite perfumes make me happy Chanel No. 5, Coco and Mademoiselle.

2 Walking barefoot along the beach, with the sand beneath my toes, in the early morning or watching the sunset.

3 Using my umbrella on a rainy day.

4 Going to sleep, listening to the raindrops on the roof.

5 Having a lovely hot bath, listening to some relaxing music and having a scented candle burning in the room.

6. Sitting around the dinning table with my family at the end of the day, having a nice meal and discussing what we had done,

Now I would like to tag the following, only if they want to play along.
I understand a lot of you are busy and this takes time.

Ps. I am going away to visit my Parents in Tauranga for a few days, so I hope to catch up with all your blogs when I return. I should be packing a few clothes in a suitcase now so I must go. Have a great week.


  1. Carolyn,
    I received your comment that you'd like to attend the Costume Party! You are more than welcome, I'm so thrilled to have you join me!
    By the way, the blue umbrella is fabulous and I love Audrey Hepburn, she personifies class.
    See you at the party!

  2. Hi Sares,

    Thank you for visiting me.
    Your Costume party sounds like fun - thank you for inviting me.


  3. Carolyn,

    I love the beach picture! There is nothing more enjoyable than listening to the waves with the warm sun shining while sand squishes between your toes:).



  4. I'm a big fan of any Chanel perfume.... actually I'm a fan of most anything Chanel makes, especially purses LOL

    I'll play along later this week ;)

    Have a nice visit!


  5. Carolyn have a loving time with your parents. Remember how lucky you are that they are both alive.

    I loved your list.


  6. Congrats on another nice award! Enjoy the time with your family! Have fun!

  7. Hi Kim,

    There is something so enjoyable being at the seaside and makes me feel so happy.

    Hi Rue

    Aren't the Chanel purses wonderful, so very stylish.
    Glad that you might play along.

    Hi Renee,

    My dear old Dad had prostate cancer and was operated on about 5 months ago. He was asked to see the Specialist yesterday so we are hoping for the best.
    I do feel lucky they are still alive and wished I lived closer.
    It is a 3 hour drive.

    Hi Diane,

    thank you so much for your kind words.


  8. Item #4 on this list has always been a fave of mine, too.

  9. Oh let's see:

    I too adore a good bath.

    Time to read a glorious book or even a wee magazine.

    Rudi's happy tailwagging when I return home. (It's so nice to be missed. :)

  10. Hello, Carolyn! This is a fine and wonderful list! Everything is so relaxing -- aaaaah! I hope you are having a fun time on your trip. And I have to tell you. I am SO in love with your La de da cups below!!!

  11. Carolyn, I am sorry, but didn't the blogpost title say "6 UNinteresting things that make you happy"? I'm afraid that your blog post did not qualify for the title. That was all very interesting! :)


  12. A lovely list from a lovely lady!

    I hope your trip goes well.

    Bon voyage!


  13. Oh that umbrella is gorgeous. I would want it to rain everyday if that was in my possession. Lovely pictures! :)

  14. Hi SteiffGal,

    Lovely isn't it - listening to the raindrops going to sleep!

    Hi Laura,

    Have just got back home to 104 emails. You go away for a few days!
    What did we do before the internet?
    Yes, a tail wagging from a loving pet is always a lovely one!

    Hi Bella,

    They are quite fun little cups and definately a Girly cup.
    I hope that the packing is going well for you.

    thanks TattingChic for visiting.

    thank you Lynda for your kind words. I have just got home and lovely to go away but always neat to be back. Driving on my own and with all the big trucks on the road can be scary.

    Hi Jessica,

    That was my birthday present for myself one year. Thank you.


  15. I enjoyed you happy blog! It's good to know what makes us tick! Best Wishes!

  16. Thank you for visiting Vicky and your kind words.


  17. Hello Carolyn,

    Thanks for participating, love your list.

    I also are a huge fan of No. 5 and as you know i love the rain, I also love baths and are a candle maniac! I love to be barefoot and we are hoping that our next house will be close to the sea..........
