Joy Joy Joy

Kyra Lennon & Clare Dugmore are hosting a blog hop. A blog hop of Joy based on Russel Howard's List of Joy and the rest of the details can be found on Kyra's blog.


My list of Joy
  1. Sunshine. All day long. I miss it.
  2. Watching the husband unit get away with a haggle.
  3. Naps. All afternoon.
  4. Having a good hair day.
  5. Swimming in outdoor swimming pools. In sunshine.
  6. Weddings.
  7. Getting away with a haggle myself.
  8. Seeing somebody in a similar outfit and knowing I wear it better.
  9. Turning on the radio and hearing my favourite song.
  10. Inadvertently finding the right comeback without meaning to.
  11. Walking into a bookstore. Not a Chapters or a WH Smith, a real bookstore.
  12. Watching comedians live on stage.
  13. Puns
  14. Trying on a bra and it fits like a glove.
  15. Videos of giggling babies.
  16. Ikea
  17. Videos of kittens
  18. Stationary

  2. Ooo, 8 and 10 are good. Although a part of me feels bad to admitting to 8. :)

    1. To me 8 has more to do with confidence than conceit so I wouldn't feel bad. :3

  4. Yes, the sun always makes me smile. I've never tried haggling - I know I'd be very bad at it!

    1. Haggling takes a lot of practice, more in confidence than in actual technique.

  10. Awesome list! I'm a stationary junkie myself. I have all these beautiful notecards and paper, but so few people I know still use the post office.

  11. Oh my goodness, successful bra shopping! I hadn't considered that as a joyful moment but you're totally right. Great list!

    1. I could live in that store: Designer bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, and with lots of food to eat. What more could a person ask for?

  13. Great list of joy! I notice sunshine features heavily - I feel like it has been winter forever! I want to see some sun again! I was lucky enough to see comedians Stewart Francis and Tim Minchin on stage last week - pure, hilarious joy!

  14. I actually can't stand seeing comedians, for the most part. haha. for some reason I find it awkward. Also, I hate haggling... A lot of the other stuff on your list I can agree with though :)

    1. Haggling definitely takes practice before you're comfortable. I find North America doesn't really allow for it in it's culture so nobody really gets the practice.

  15. Thanks for taking part in the bloghop; great list. I love stationary too, I used to spend all my pocket money on it as a kid. Where are you finding these wonderful bras that fit like a glove? I can never get a comfortable one.

    1. OMG, these bras? Many months of searching. I found one recently at Marks & Spencer. Unfortunately, not very durable. :(
