My Favourite Feelings (my Mum’s)

It’s so fascinating to read my parents’ favourite feelings – I asked them to compile a list of some of their favourite feelings a few weeks ago, and I had no idea what they would come up with. When they sent me their lists by email, I (obviously) cried, because they’re so genuine and beautiful and sweet. They warmed the cockles of my soul. In these lists, there’s nothing groundbreaking or hugely surprising, but it’s not something we often speak about, so it’s truly heartwarming to read a list of some of the things which make my parents happiest. (My Mum has also kept emailing me to add more items to this list… adorable.)

So, this time, it’s my Mum’s turn to list some of her favourite feelings. She worked at a bank for over 40 years, she always looks 100% presentable with a massive smile, and she can haggle her way through anything. Here are some of her favourite feelings:

  • Eating out with my husband and preferably also with my daughter
  • Having picnics with my sisters
  • Visiting elderly acquaintances
  • Organising a BBQ for the family
  • Buying good quality items at bargain prices
  • Making other people happy
  • Helping others
  • Eating healthy food
  • Skype sessions with our daughter – I can never have enough
  • Having Claire home (from Luxembourg)
  • Meeting old friends
  • When the house is clean and tidy
  • Seeing to a lot of errands
  • When it’s bad weather and all the family is at home
