 This blog, written by a 92 year old that recently lost his wife (although he seems to have decided to stop blogging already, which is sad)

My first post on Charlotte's Web was the beginning of a 'happy' series. This isn't what you'll find if you zoom back through my archives since I later transferred the posts from my former blog, and stuck them in before the publishing date of my first post - but I assure you, that is where it all began. The series went on to document 100 things that made me happy, which I followed up with 100 things I love about England (that was a difficult one, believe me) and later continued in the form of '5 smiles.'

It's been a while since these posts made an appearance, and I wanted to bring them back with a little more permanence. No end point, no 'oh I've reached 100, time to stop.' Just an unlimited happy list. Through this I will document the things that have made me smile, laugh, cry (happy cry) and feel inspired, all in posts that will be named 'Moments & Happy Things.'

This is post #1

  3. Ahhh I loved the blog by the 92 year old, I first read it and wanted to cry, so beautifully written! I'm also dying at how cute your pets are. I WANT A RABBIT OK. Maybe we should just swap out our partners for each other? Venice and a rabbit, what more could I want?! xxx

  13. Hello, new follower as of right now and loving this post. Such a great idea as people wallow too much on the sad things in life, forgetting the moments that make us smile. I agree about the 100 not being the limit as there are unlimitness amounts of things that make people happy :) Looking forward to seeing more posts soon! Oh and your cat and rabbit are beautiful!

  19. Mmmmm I had one of those caramel pecan bars yesterday- they are out of this world good aren't they? If I was one of those actresses who had to gain a few stone for a role, I'd do it with those babies.
