this is....what makes me happy!

apart from my boys and hubby who (usually) put a smile on my face, i try to find happiness in the little things that we sometimes take for granted in our everyday life....
today it was
*homemade chicken soup (ive got a cold... wahhhh)
*fresh out of the oven cake
*Music (currently loving 'Paris is Burning'
by Ladyhawke)
* a stack of new magazines
* a trip to 'That Vintage store'
in Enmore to help my sister choose some chandeleirs for her house....nice!

a happy moment from the other day - Peter & I ventured into town on Friday to meet Andrew for lunch and we found ourselves in a train carriage full of Brazilian youths (pilgrims) here for World Youth Week (the Pope's in town people!!)...what a wonderful 20min train ride... they had their guitars out, singing, cheering, clapping and I got caught up in the fun of it all ... a happy train ride!

Big thanks to Jacinta
