Today I’m taking part in my first book tag! This is the 5 things that make you happy tag. Thanks Sarah for tagging me, sorry it’s taken me a while to get to it!
5 Things that Make Me Happy
I’ve not put reading on this list because I felt it’s a bit too obvious!
1) Roller skating
Something that I loved when I was younger, and I took it up again a couple of years ago when I joined a roller derby team.
2) Making things
Crochet, knitting, baking, websites (my day job is web development). I’ve been working on a crochet blanket since last Christmas, and I’ve had a stripy jumper on the go for well over a year now. I also love baking, especially if it’s a gift for someone. My boyfriend is obsessed with ginger flapjacks so I make them a lot for him.
3) Being at home
Kinda ties into number 2, but I’m a real homebody. I love days where I don’t have to do anything and I can just curl up on the sofa, drink lots of tea, put some roller derby on tv and work on whatever craft project I have on the go. Or those days where I can just stay at home and read all day 🙂
4) Exploring new places
I’m maybe not the most adventurous person, but I do love mini holidays to places I’ve never been before so I can do a bit of exploring. I like cities so that I can find odd little shops and cafes and visit all the art galleries and museums, and I also love costal breaks so I can go walking on the beach and hunt for sea glass.
5) Going to the gym
Yes, I’m one of those people that loves exercise. There are more of us then you might think, hands up if you also love those days that you get to go to the gym? To make it even worse I also have an instagram dedicated to gym checkins and food photos. #sorrynotsorry.
