What Are Your favourite Things?
“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens”
are some of Julie Andrews favourite things, as she sings in the film Mary Poppins, but what are
some of your favourite things?
Sometimes, when I don’t feel so good, if I feel a bit down and in a bad mood, I think of a few
things that make me happy and it cheers me up. It really works, you should try it if don’t believe
What do I think about? Well, good memories, for one. I think about good times I’ve had in the
past. How lucky I’ve been to have known certain people and seen particular places. I’ve had some
wonderful experiences in my life so far, and it makes me happy to remember them.
Other things I like are dogs playing together, a colourful sunset, the smell of grass that has just
been cut and fresh bread baking in the oven. I love chocolate cake and chocolate biscuits and,
well, anything with chocolate in basically! Being with good friends and laughing, listening to my
favourite music makes me smile and so does a cool breeze blowing in from the sea.
In fact, there are so many beautiful things in the world that I’m amazed when I feel sad, but I
do sometimes and thinking of these things never fails to cheer me up.
