#3: You score 2 items from the vending machine!

#3 It makes my day when………..You score 2 items from the vending machine!
Trust me it happens and boy oh boy does it make your day.
It happened to me circa 2005 at the Perth Domestic Airport departures lounge (Virgin/SkyWest departures to be exact) as I was about to fly out to a mine site for a work trip. I was attempting to buy a Cherry Ripe to help improve my mood as I sulked as I was leaving a few weeks for work.
So it was to my extreme excitement that instead I got 2 Cherry Ripes and let out a little squeal and did I small (okay rather large) jump of joy.
However the positive experience changed my thoughts on flying for each work trip and each time I walked past that vending machine I smiled at myself at my own good fortune.

#2: The item is on sale.

#2 It makes my day when……….. You have to go to the shops for a specific item and when you get there, you find that it’s on sale.
Whether it’s as simple as your favourite cereal or shampoo, it always makes me a bit excited and proud of my good timing.
Even bigger items though, such as a new dress and/or matching shoes, completely take the cake and have me retelling my good fortune to all those who will listen.

#1: New Sock Day

#1 It makes my day when……  It’s new sock day!
The feeling of fresh, crisp socks is one of utter bliss.
If it wasn’t for the cost and wastefulness of it, I would love to indulge in wearing brand new socks every day.
Brand new, expensive sports specific socks is an even rarer and more thrilling experience, so at $30 a pop, I make sure that I truly cherish those few steps.

Note: Princes Charles looks pretty pleased with his new socks too!

It makes my day when.........

It makes my day when…… is my new blog, which I have decided to start in honour of the little pleasures in life that often don’t get the recognition they deserve. Hallmark doesn’t make cards to mark these occasions but that doesn’t mean they don’t feel as exciting as a Birthday or Christmas at the time of their occurrence.
These are the things that bring a smile to your dial, make you squeal with delight, have you pump your fist with joy or simply smirk at your own good fortune.
There are so many of these little moments throughout our life and it’s time we gave them some credit.
So each day I will be posting a blog about one of these moments that make my day when they happen.
The blogs won’t be long but hopefully they may make you stop & think about all the little pleasures in your life that make you smile.
Feel free to share your moments with me anytime.
