#1 Lying tucked up in bed at night, warm and snug, listening to the howling wind and rain lashing against the window.
#2 Slipping into your soft, comfy, worn-in jeans after weeks of wearing pair upon pair of tiiiiiiiiight skinny jeans.
#4 Looking out to sea and remembering just how small and insignificant you and your daily struggles really are in the grand scheme of things.
#5 A long, hot shower after a good work out at the gym, zumba class, run or back-breaking stint of gardening or DIY.
#6 Wearing something new for the first time that makes you feel really good about yourself.
#7 Being the first out of the house to step onto freshly fallen snow (if you can beat the foxes, cats and other garden critters to it, that is).
#8 Laughing a real tickled-pink-can’t-help-yourself-deep-down-in-your-belly-laugh and not being able to stop.
#9 Feeling the warmth of the sun on your bare skin after months of it being buried under warm, woolly layers.
#10 Going to sleep at night nestled into the one person you really want to be nestled into.
