    Happiness is reading this post. 🙂

  2. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    I love that approach to happiness, and have been coming to embrace the small happiness moments more and more. And it works! 😀 I’m really quite happy overall, much more than before, while I still wait for the “big” happiness things to happen – may they come or may not, I’m having fun right now. 😉

    It is very important to find the little joys in life, as the big ones, like Lotto wins don’t come along all that often. I’m very happy that you recommended this place for our recent brunch, the girls all had a lovely time. Even I liked the look of the Urban Affogato, if you didn’t have to pour coffee all over it and wreck it.

    Happiness is knowing that I might get to go to urban pantry because it is near to where we are staying – hurrah! It looks like my sort of place and just the place to enjoy the moment with your mum – I am sure it made her very happy too – to share time with you and to see you being happy.

    Now you’ve given me a massive craving for a Crunchie bar!!!
    Happiness is also visiting your blog and discovering a new post to read. 🙂

    Ahhh, happiness indeed! Urban affogatos (affogati?) and chats with mother sounds so wonderful.

    You have a great philosophy to happiness and I can see you are a very happy person. So uplifting to read your posts, you are infectious and keep smiling! The world needs more people like you.

    Yay for happiness. I’ve read a few blog posts about happiness this morning, and that makes me 😀

    Happiness is sipping coffee juice at ‘A Bite’ with mahhhh bestie on a Friday arvo. 🙂
    LOVE the picture of you as a goblin… LOL… Laughing so hard! This world needs a bunch more peeps like you darling girl. Hope your having a wonderful Saturday. Hugs. Xxx

  12. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Haha Mr NQN and I always call each other goblins! 😛 I loved the ones in Harry Potter-what funny little faces! And that affogato! That’s like an affogato times 100!

    Happiness is being lucky enough to know that you are indeed lucky and happy.

    For those to not realise that and constantly complain, they are in a complete lost with nature…

  14. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    You write the most amazing and refreshing posts 🙂 This one in particular rings true – I think it’s hard to be happy when you’re focusing on trying to achieve the ‘big ticket’ items you mentioned.

    Your drink and your Mum’s cake look pretty amazing too!

    Happiness is also having lovely goblin girls present in your life. And you are the loveliest goblin girl I know, and we are all very lucky to have you 🙂

  16. Errign

    Amen sister. Love this post 🙂

    Sponge candy is easily one of the best toppings for ice cream, hands down! Everything else you’ve featured is wonderful as well, but now I can’t stop thinking about a candy-covered sundae…

  18. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Love this! Happiness is definitely fancy desserts, and you know, like rainbows and kittens and stuff. 😉

    You are awesome. Uni is horrible right now, but your happiness posts make everything better.

  20. Andrew

    How come i can’t +1 this?

  21. hungryandfrozen

    You are sweet.
    Nope, not as sweet – you’re even sweeter than it. Much as I love your recipes and chocolate review, I also love your introspective mini posts, and you’re exactly right about happiness 🙂

    You’re rather graceful when imitating a goblin. Workin’ the angles. Very “Top Model.”

    Ahhh, that is the affogato of my dreaaaams! They don’t make ’em like that in Taiwan. Or Virginia, for that matter. Though maybe I’d like it better if those violet shards were Reese’s…

    “Happiness is being wholly present in your own life.”
    I love it! So true .

  24. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Oh my goodness, you are SO spot on – happiness is being wholly present in your own life. Yes. What a beautiful post. I loved how you described your conversation with your mum 🙂

    That affogato looks amazing and makes me want a crunchie bar right now!

    It was a special Mother’s Day … great company and lovely food on a cold Canberra evening. There are some good reasons for becoming a mother and this is certainly one of them. Thanks WayChoc!! x0

    “Happiness is being wholly present in your own life.”

    Ain’t that the truth.

  28. Emma

    Seeing how Top Model goblin-play can be, I definitely should have gone dressed as Griphook! Why didn’t I:(

    I did want to make pointy tin foil ears.

    M says that you always seem to be wearing slippers (after commenting on your love of silly photos – which would make you fit right in here). I asked him if it was a bad thing. It’s not. It is a sensible thing.

    That is all.
