Happiness is… hanging out with my daughter Eve. Full of laughter, Eve is four going on 64. She’s an old soul and I swear she’s been here in this life before.
We named her after the saddest song in the world (Bell X1′s Eve The Apple Of My Eye) but Eve is pure joy. She has shone a light into my life and given me a purpose.
I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness lately and what makes me truly happy. Maybe it’s because the blog turned two during the week (Happy Birthday TBI!) or maybe it’s because Eve was accepted into our village school and will be leaving me soon, either way I’ve been in a reflective mood.
When I’m in a funk, I like to go off into a dark corner, drink a glass or two of red wine and listen to The Smiths’ happiest tunes (an oxymoron, I know). And before you know it, I’m back to happy.
In the meantime, here’s a favourite little musical interlude from The Smiths. Happy Sunday everyone x
