April 2016 | Happiness Highlights

Paper Towns

“At some point, you gotta stop looking up at the sky, or one of these days you’ll look back down and see that you floated away, too.”

#10: Feeling inspired, leading to a burst of productivity.

#11: Spending some of my birthday vouchers (via Amazon) to purchase an array of new books and films.


Magic Kingdom

#13: My brother very kindly bought the Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) BD for me, since we have a lot of memories together from watching the franchise growing up.

#15: Enjoying the blue skies, sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures.

#16: Going for a long, peaceful walk and picking up some lunch with Stephen.

#18: Having a tasty and healthy ham salad wrap for lunch.


#19: Satisfaction guaranteed: Ticking off the ‘to-do’ list and tackling lots of small tasks in a matter of hours.

#20: Reading the next chapter of Paper Towns (John Green) before bed.

#21: Starting the weekend early and beginning our next TV show marathon (The X Files).

    Hi, Fab blog! I have just set up mine, but still in the very early stages – a few months old. Just making efforts to link in with fellow bloggers to improve our followers and get the word out there for us both. I would appreciate you having a peek at my blog, as I have published several posts. Feel free to like, comment, follow or just take a peek. Thank you 🙂

    Quite a good idea to post such a list every month. Also helps to reflect what you’ve done so far. And it certainly brings a smile on others faces. Btw – I really have to watch that “Zootropolis” movie. Everyone is talking about that one and I still haven’t seen it. :\ Also X-Files for the win! 😀 Have you seen the new ones?
