  1. Shopping-I know this sounds materialistic and shallow but shopping really does makes me feel good. I’m sure it releases endorphins. I love bag and shoe shopping primarily but have been known to get giddy in my local supermarket. I’m definitely more Mulberry less Marks & Spencer though!
  2. Walks-I love walking in the outdoors-parks, lakes, countryside, nothing makes me happier. OK maybe shopping- but only by a whisper. We used to live near Richmond Park, simply stunning. I now get my fix at Roundhay Park or simply chilling in the garden (above) overlooking a reservoir.
  3. Getting a manicure -I never have unpainted toenails. I feel naked without nail varnish on my toes but getting a manicure on my hands is a treat and something I wish I had more time to do, it makes me feel like a lady.
  4. Sunbathing – My family are Cypriot and although I wasn’t born nor grew up in Cyprus, I feel the need for sun is in my blood. I love sunbathing but keep the face in the shade as Mama taught me-oh and lots of sun factor all over. Sun sans wrinkles please.
  5. Dancing-I just love to shake my booty. I love music of all kinds but mostly R ‘n’ B and dance. Now my little man is always dancing too, to anything and everything. JT you better watch out, Baby O can bust some moves!

    Great post! I want to throw in a couple ideas too:

    -get a fabulous massage (ahh, bliss!)
    -go for a swim, but at a pool at a Spa -like that time we went for a swim in the Langham in London -that was fun! How relaxing was that!
    -going to a bakery and buying freshly baked pastries & buying espresso (that I just love to do on a Sunday!)
    -shopping is heaven, but shopping in Oslo is not like shopping in London, so sadly I haven’t been shopping a storm over here! (although I’m sure my dear husband would disagree!!)
    -editing photos on photoshop (that’s my real ‘quiet’ time!)
    -riding my bike when the sun is shinning
    -buying fresh chocolate that comes wrapped in fancy boxes with ribbons (I’m a glutton, what can I say)
    -watching period dramas by the BBC (heeeeavvven!!)
    -scrubbing my body down with sea salts from Israel… love it!
