Hello Lincolnshire. Little Joy Designs here.

Sometimes we forget to appreciate the little things. 

You've heard it before 'the best things in life are free' but hey a little reminder never hurt anyone did it? 

And so here is a list of small, almost insignificant and simple things that'll have you spiralling up into a cloud of warm, fuzzy and happy.

  1. Bubble baths
  2. Classic Disney films
  3. The sound of a perfect high-five
  4. Running though Autumn leaves
  5. The crunchy sound of those Autumn leaves
  6. Taking your bra off at the end of the day
  7. Popping bubble wrap
  8. Making people smile (even better making people snort with laughter)

  10. Poking your foot into the cold bit of the bed
