Favourite things?

Julie Andrews once said: When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when Im feeling sad. I simply remember my favourite things and then I dont feel so bad.

If you're going to make me feel old and pretend you dont know wtf Im talking about, have a listen:
So what are some of your favourite things? 10 would be good, 5 if you're really struggling.

Nothing thats against the rules ;)

There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you.
But there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.

I aint no abacus but you can count on me.

PM me if you want a PDF copy of the ICD-10 or the Mental Health Act 1983/2007. I ALSO HAVE THE DSM-V BOOK and am a pharmacology student.

I have a visual impairment / neurological problems so I need people to type in clear text and no funny fonts. Also excuse any typos, my vision blocks things out.
I have autism and have problems communicating, PMs included.
Just becasue I type well doesn't mean I speak well. I am only part time verbal.

I forgot: TRAINS are one of my favourite things! And train maps too. And train timetables.

Bus drivers who wait for you to get to the bus stop, and wait for you to sit down before setting off.
Air conditioning.
Pretty writing paper.
Finishing a sketchbook.
...and starting a new one.
Koalas.
Train tickets.
The moment when you get so full of pride for someone that it feels like your heart is made of fluff.
Bare feet on cold floors in summer.
Hotel rooms.
Guinea pigs.
Ducklings.
Tattooing.
Really, really soft tissues when you have a cold.

I have a lot of favourite things now I'm happy. How odd. I could probably keep writing that list for a couple more hours.

Also, Julie Andrews is on my list of very favourite people ever.




Now I'll play your ghost as my ace, whenever I'm led astray.
But I am actually good, can't help it if we're tilted.
I'm in my right place, don't be a downer.

I love reading other peoples favourite things ^_^ 10 was just a guideline, you can put as many as you like! Plus its really interesting that some people are more about smells/sights etc!

My favourite things:
Gin with cucumber and a good tonic.
Pastel colours.
The seaside.
Bonfires.
Candles in jars.
Diet coke with lemon and ice.
My 3 cats.
Green foliage against grey sky.
Those crushing bear hugs.
Phone calls that last for hours.
Films/TV shows I know off by heart.
Baking.
Giving things to others.
Gift wrapping.
Craft.
Christmas.
The feeling when you couldn't be any happier for someone else.
Fresh bedding.
Tidy rooms.
Breeze dried clothes.
The smell of pine when it melts through gaps in wood.
The sound fallen leaves make under foot.

That reminds me, I love the sound of trains from my flat. I live near a train station and for some reason I find the sound of trains going by at night rather soothing.

Here are a few more:

Cups of tea
Beads
Monkeys
Making things for people
Any form of lemon cake
Splashing in puddles if I'm wearing wellies
My sister visiting

This thread inspired me to download and watch The Sound of Music.
Now it's 3am and I'm going to be useless at work tomorrow/today.

Oh well, here are mine.
- the look on a student's face when they suddenly understand something
- the taste of beer after a long day
- thunderstorms
- long journeys on sleeper trains
- being understood while speaking another language
- hugs
- fur-lined boots
- cats
- holidays




Каждому, каждому в лучшее верится,
Катится, катится голубой вагон!
