Small and happy's 50 things that make me smile :)

So due to my boyfriend being poorly I had a lot of time by myself this weekend and it meant I was feeling a little blue at times. Then I stopped myself and realised that it's so silly to feel that way when there are so many little joys in life and after all, my word for 2015 is joyful! 

To that end I've decided to see if I could list 50 things that never fail to make me smile. Turns out it was much easier than I thought, it's all about the little things :)
