Listography.... 5 things that make you happy

The listography this week from Katetakes5 is 5 things that make you happy.

In no particular order.......

1) hearing my son laugh.
2) watching J and the AC play silly games together.
3) the smell of baking when the cakes are just about to come out.
4) the warmness of a duvet, a man, 2 cats and a boy, all snugged up together watching tv on the sofa.
5) the sight of a pair of Tornado GR5's soaring through the air.

A lot of the things I love and which make me happy, are there because of what they represent, as well as what they actually are.

The first two represent recovery from grief and shock.
The second two represent family and safety and joy and love.
The last represents all that is true and good and supportive at a time when my world fell apart.  The RAF didn't forget us, didn't devalue us, didn't leave us high and dry.  They loved us, cherished us, supported us, and cared for us.

I'm going to link this up with Kates and then do some work. :-(  It's all work lol!  I need to find 3 things I use for differentiated maths!

Easy.......
