So I set about compiling my own little happy list. The little loves that make my life that little bit smilier...
As William Morris once said...
"The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life"
OK... I think there's a lot more to true happiness than that (you can read about that here) but this little quote put a smile on my face. I definitely think there is something in it...
