Hi pixie

That doesnt sound unusual at all. It sounds great. I was in my 30s before i lost interest in going on the swings

Happy daydreams

I've never thought of this for such a long time.

My happy place would be in a cosy little house in a lush green area, lots of trees and open ground with a stream near by would be nice. Maybe a few dogs to keep us company. Far from the city, with my nearest neighbour about 4km away. A cup of hot tea in my hand, cuddled close to my partner on the swing in my porch looking out at our future child with our fur babies running around playing. The sound of giggles, the scenic view, the body warmth from my partner and the sun, I crave it. The feeling of no worries, nothing to rush to, to stress about. just to sit and enjoy the moment.

I would be on a white beach in the Caribbean with a can of Ting in my hand a cigarette in the other. Looking longingly into the clear blue ocean, meanwhile my boyfriend is lying next to me his hand on my stomach and staring into my eyes. Music is softly playing in the background and the smell of sun cream in the air. ❤️

I would be sitting outside in the sun with a glass of wine and a good book. I managed to do this quite a lot when we had good weather.

My happy place would be tucked up in bed listening to a good radio play before drifting off to sleep.

Bed and podcasts

With an occasioanl hot drink brought to me - tea or hot chocolate depending on my mood - by my son whom would also pop his head around the door every now and again and check i was okay

With no responsibilities and nothing I had to get up for or do - until and if I wanted to

And for as long as I wanted to - be it 24 hours or 24 weeks

Dear Upwards,
after reading your post above and the posts of other people
I have to amend mine.
so now I will be in bed, but just for a few hours or I could be having a duvet day.
either way, I would have left the care of being a 'grown up' a the door.

I would have a hot drink - and my husband is very good at making these (well he is good at making tea), and I would be listening to a talking book, radio play or like you, a pod-cast.
I have no where that I need to be and non one that I need to help.
No one is depending on me.
I have no project that I need to finish - all projects are left outside the door.
I am not craving anyone's attention or acceptance.
I am happy to be in my own company.
I can close my eyes and be in the world of the story teller and the narrator.
This is my happy place.

or

I could be in my little vegetable plot, picking tomatoes or mint or digging potatoes while listening to the babble of the little children who live on the street.
I can hear them playing and chattering.

B

Not much really
Just to be feeling good about engaging with the world and its people.
Laughing, joking and chatting, thinking with a clear mind, having a sense of curiosity and wonder...

In the deserts of Arizona, Nevada or Utah, late summer, warm days, cool nights, camping by myself.
