    Awww, what a lovely wee list!


    – Really, really adorable boys who unexpectedly buy you boxes of birthday chocolates. (So cute!) – Strangers who surprise you with ”hey! I love your blog!” comments. – Beautiful blue sky days. – Any time spent with my boyfriend, because it’s always ridiculous, stupid and fun!
