  1. Yeeess you like Marmite! Haha Lovely list :-) x

  2. Great list, and thanks for the nomination.

  3. Great list.
    My hubby loves Warhammer models too. He's got loads, all waiting to be painted. He's got all the kit but no time to do it as yet!

    1. Thanks Battle mum. I love it. Not so much the playing of it but definitely the model making! Time to do it is difficult! Hope hubby finds some time.

  4. Ah pound puppies! I remember them so cute. Loads of good reasons to be happy I enjoyed writing mine too good fun and you realise you can go on!

    1. Thanks Hannah. I've had my pound puppy from birth. He's ended up being my constant. :)

  5. Has to be rare steak. Herself has is burnt like rubber. I'm a Marmite hater though.

    1. Burnt steak horrible. Have no idea how people eat it well done. No!! Marmite is lovely!

  6. Great list :) I found it tricky past 30ish!!
    I'm not a marmite lover or a rare steak kinda girl but I love a deep clean too.

    1. Thanks Lianne. No marmite or rare steaks! Shame on you! ;) but you really can't go wrong with a deep clean....I love it!

  7. Such a good idea to do, always nice to think of the things that make us happy! #happydiaries

  8. Definitely. Otherwise you get bogged down.
