Catching up on Tumblr and noticed that Flavia tagged me to list the 15 things that make me happy, so here we go:

  1. Weekend morning routine: if I don’t have any plans, my absolute favourite way to spend the morning on a weekend is to make an enormous cup of tea, make toast with my fave blackberry jam, put on my ‘weekend relaxing’ playlist, and catch up on internet things (I’m doing this right now btw).
  2. Going to mum and dad’s house and seeing my dogs jumping up and down excitedly inside as I walk up the driveway.
  3. Getting to a point in the book I’m reading and thinking “this has to be one of the best books I’ve ever read and I’m not even half-way through it.”
  4. The day each month when the Criterion Collection announce their new titles. My heart races a little bit as I scroll down to see them.
  5. The moment when you’re in a foreign country and you take a mental step back and realise how incredible it is that you’re there, far from home and separate from virtually everything familiar (for me this usually happens in restaurants, go figure).
  6. Sleeping in a freshly made bed.
  7. Coming home from work on a Monday in Game of Thrones season. Justin doesn’t work on Monday, so I arrive home to dinner and a new episode waiting for me to watch on the TV. I also love the debrief after each episode when he asks me questions about where things are going, and figuring out how to answer without ruining anything.
  8. Friday at work. Mr. Burger is always at Federation Square on Friday’s, so we usually get that for lunch, then start drinking around 3 - 4. Apart from the odd work-related drama, Friday’s are pretty chill.
  9. Have to agree with Flavia and say Christmas at our house in Port Fairy. It’s so nice to go back to the coast at such a beautiful time of year and see my extended family, who are all (for the most part) excellent people who I love hanging out with.
  10. Going to IKEA when it’s really quiet (the sweet time is straight after work on a Tuesday).
  11. Watching Studio Ghibli films. They have such an incredible affect on my mood.
  12. My mum’s chocolate pudding. 
  13. The day arriving that you’ve been looking forward to for months, or even years. Harry Potter book releases, going overseas, the last day of exams - nothing compares to it.
  14. Having a night in with friends and getting steadily drunk over excellent food and conversation.
  15. Seeing flowers blossom in my backyard after planting them months before.

It’s kind of funny ‘starting again’ on a whole new blogging platform after I’ve been using Tumblr for five (?) years. I’ve reached a mini milestone after receiving 20 followers on Bramble & Thorn, which is kind of cool because I’ve only been over at Bloglovin for just under two weeks. I still love Tumblr but it’s really nice to have a place where I can write a bit more freely about my life and the things that I love with a lighter tone. Tumblr is where I come when I want to write about everything that sucks in my life and complain about how terrible the world is, where my new blog is more of an effort to focus on the good things I’ve got going on (which I’m trying to focus on more). 
Anyway, I’m still around here lurking, but I’ll probably be a bit more active over there if you’re interested in seeing what I’m up to or whatever.
