  1. I just love this list - most of these things are things I love to do on any day, so the fact that it's been raining all the time lately is just giving me a good excuse! Inspired by you, I started a new notebook a few days ago to write down all the things that make me happy, and I added 'listening to rain on a conservatory roof' to my list - there is just something about listening to, or watching rain that I find so cathartic and calming. I saw your story about the spacehopper on Twitter and it made me laugh out loud - sounds like such a surreal story!

  2. if we don't get some sun soon, i will have a FIT :o(


  3. rainy days are just perfect- you're so lucky that england's all cold and rainy right now! it's about thirty eight degrees in toronto right now- ick. completely agree with all of these, especially the cake eating one! X

  4. I love British summertime - best day of the year x

  5. Most of my favourite activities:) Loving your post x

  6. i kind of like rainy days, i love to be all cosy-ed up inside and doing soemthing crafty..but i wish there was actually some outside-weather soon too, considering it's supposed to be summer!

  7. I am probably near the top of the list for complaining about the lack of summer, however I do LOVE the rain... when I'm inside obvs! Curling up with a book and listening to it beat against the window. If I get caught in the rain however I do tend like let my childish side escape and start puddle jumping!
