I have a secret. I love musicals, Annie, Chicago, Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music – of course I don’t admit to this because my friends would think I’m uncool.
My favourite musical is probably The Sound of Music. Just the other day, to cheer myself up I remembered the song, A Few of My Favourite Things:
Whiskers on kittens, and raindrops on roses
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens Brown paper packages tied up with string These are a few of my favourite things
I love all those things but I also love snowglobes, jelly, dogs and cats that are best friends, making cakes, storms, multi-coloured trees in autumn, real log fires, the sea, fireworks, electric blankets. Anyway, you get the picture. So I wondered, with all the doom and gloom that’s around, what are you doing to cheer yourself up? And what are your favourite things?
