To describe someone who laughs a lot.

I’m trying to write something and due to varying degrees of pandemic brain fog I’ve gone completely blank. What springs to mind to describe someone who’s always laughing?! Can anyone throw me a suggestion that my tired old brain just hasn’t thought of?

Gleeful? Jolly? Mirthful?

Hope it comes to you! 😊

Jocose or jocund?
(Or plain annoying.)

Oh these are all excellent, thank you clever mumsnetters grin

Mirthful is a really good one; it doesn’t quite work for what I need but the definition that I’ve found saying “full of laughter” is spot on!

@peridito That is also extremely helpful to me, thank you!

Bubbly? That word always makes me think of Barbara Windsor's laugh for some reason!
