11 things that make you happy if you're a big kid in an adult's body


1. Sitting up the front on the top deck of a bus and pretending you’re the driver

2. Oohing and ahhing at fireworks even though you’ve seen them countless times before

“That was a big one!”

3. Cutting your sandwiches into triangles

So aesthetically pleasing.

4. Getting up at the crack of dawn on Christmas morning to see if Santy came

You might be 26 years old, but you still have trouble sleeping on Christmas Eve due to being so overwhelmed with excitement.

5. SNOW!

There’s nothing like snow to bring out your inner child. Just the mere sight of it makes you want to call in sick to work and build a snowman.

6. Changing into a brand new pair of matching pyjamas

The cosier the better.

7. Having a dinner of waffles and nuggets

Just because you can.

8. Calling ‘bags’ over who gets to sit in the front seat

You might be a grown adult, but you’re still hyper competitive when it comes to riding shotgun.

9. Snuggling up with popcorn to watch a Disney film

“What are you going to see in the cinema, Sinead?”

“Er… Manchester by the Sea.”

10. Coming across a pile of crunchy leaves and kicking them to your heart’s content

The best part of autumn.

11. Getting a packet of crisps in the pub

Ah, brings back memories of being given King Crisps in the pub as a child to keep you quiet.
