Sunshine, tea and chirping birds

Yesterday I got myself quite bummed. The whole Visa application process is very draining, and plain annoying. I had felt quite on track, and like I would be ready to send it off in a week or two...but now, it feels like it may take longer, AND it's going to cost more. I had assumed the Police and Medical checks could be done between being granted the Temporary Visa and the Permanent Visa, but apparently not...and the medical costs a nice $332. Yikes! So yeah, yesterday I was bummed out about all that. So I thought, maybe it would be good for me to start listing things worth being happy about. There are so many little things in life that are worth being happy about that I, and possibly others, forget about. So, I want to take some time every now and then to think of them. :)

Here are a few for today.
Birds chirping. I love spring and summer time, the sound of birds chirping is one of my favourite sounds. It's oddly relaxing and happy, I love waking up to the sound of birds. :)

Sunshine. Ah, sunshine. Doesn't sunshine just make you feel instantly better. I find the weather can really have an affect on my mood, and the sun makes me so much happier and productive. I also love the feeling of sunshine on my skin, mmm. Sunshine AND birds chirping are the best combination for a summer nap.
Ah, tea. I wouldn't be British if tea didn't make me happy. I love tea. Yum, yum, yum. Who doesn't feel better after a nice cup of tea?

    1. Ooo! I do like that too! And the quite buzz of bees. :)
