Happiness by A.A Milne

Happiness by A.A Milne (1882-1956)

John had great big waterproof boots on;

John had a great big waterproof hat;

John had a great big waterproof mackintosh - 

And that (said John) is that.



I have met so many great people through social media networks & it never fails to surprise how 'connected' we can feel to each other even if we have only ever met on line or briefly in real life. So I was really delighted when Conor Galvin who is a lecturer at UCD sent me a tweet about this perfect little A.A Milne poem called Happiness from Brain Pickings. He thought it was perfect for me given the title of the blog & I just loved this little verse so much I decided to make it into a post!
