Welcome to my ‘Happy Place’

If you were asked to show us your Happy Place, what would it look like?

happy place

Where do you go when you need to think? What do you do when you need to restore yourself, to ready yourself to take on the coming week with energy and verve? How do you get your sense of humour back? How do you recharge your groove?

My list looks something like this:

A book to read

A cup of tea

Some delicious lunch

A breeze

A sunshiny day

Spring growth in the garden

Autumn colours

Crunchy leaves

Lots of open space

Big sky



Undemanding and understanding



That’s my happy place.

I’m reminded of the quintessentially Australian classic song ‘Home among the Gumtrees’ by John Williamson – here are just some of the words which resonate with me. If you know the actions, you can join in as you sing along!

I’ve been around the world
A couple of times or maybe more
I’ve seen the sights, I’ve had delights
On every foreign shore
But when my mates all ask me
The place that I adore
I tell them right away

Give me a home among the gumtrees
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo
A clothesline out the back
Verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair

That sums it up just perfectly!

How about you, where’s your happy place that lets you recharge?

    1. Thank you! The song just came to mind when I was writing my list out and fits my happy place quite well.. It’s very Australian isn’t it and I hope you did all the actions when you sang it.

  1. What a gorgeous post Deb! Your happy place sounds divine! I’d be very happy to join you there. Also – how lucky are you to have that outlook on your walk – so beautiful! I’d never tire of that either. And finally – that song is so Aussie isn’t it and so very much how I feel also. Thanks so much for linking up with #ZTT xo

    1. Thanks Min, it was fun looking back through my posts, I’ve forgotten so many I’ve written over the years. This one seemed to fit in quite nicely.

      It’s a good place to live, I know that!!
