Cherry Pie : Happy Days

18 June 2010

Happy Days

According to ITV's 'This Morning' program, today is supposed to be the happiest day of the year.

"Apparently the feeling of optimism caused by the combination of lighter evenings, the prospect of holidays and memories of childhood summers is at its peak on June 20.
According to the research this has been worked out using the equation O + (N xS) + Cpm/T + He.

O stands for being outdoors and outdoor activity, N is connection with nature, which is in full bloom now, S is socialisation with neighbours and friends, Cpm stands for childhood positive memories, T is the mean temperature which is now usually warm, and He is holiday expected."

Well, thank you for that, but I am not a fan of Maths at all!

I don't really have any prospects of holidays to look forward to but it's a pretty sunny day and I don't have anything to do so I'd say that's a pretty good start. Anyway, this 'happiest day of the year' malarky has inspired today's blog post..

What is making me happy at the moment?

1. Sunny Weather

I'm not usually one for the sunshine but I can stand it until it starts to make me sweat! It's a great excuse for eating ice lollies and I love that it doesn't get dark until late. Vince and I are definitely going to be having some picnics on the beach this summer!

2. No more education!

This morning, while talking to my sister, I realised I've been in education for 17 years so I definitely think it's about time it was over!!

3. Graduating!

I'm the first person in my dad's side of the family to actually go to Uni. I get my final result on the 16th July and although it's a bit scary, it's good to know that I've achieved something!

4. Being at home for the summer!

It's nice being home again and not having to worry about loads of bills, food shopping and rent. Now I can just concentrate on earning some money and enjoying the summer.

Those are the main things making me happy today, hopefully everyone will have a nice happy day today! :)
