Things That Make Me Happy 6 - 10

Here are my five Things That Make Me Happy for this week, as part of completing my 43 Things List:

6. Nice manners

My parents were always really strict on manners when I was growing up, and I can really appreciate it now. Especially having worked in the customer service sector for more than five years, I can tell you that politeness and nice manners are always remembered.

7. Baking

I'm not much of a cook, but I do love to bake. When I started this blog I used to post recipes and pictures of my baking, which I hope to start up again soon. Plus, there is nothing nicer than the smell of cakes baking in the oven to put you in a happy mood!

8. Musical theatre

I am a self-confessed musical theatre fanatic. Musicals make me insanely happy. I love the way they transport the audience into a world where people sing everything they can't say aloud, and where no one minds if you spontaneously start dancing .

9. Dr. Spencer Reid
Matthew Gray Gulber is the reason I started watching Criminal Minds. Dr. Spencer Reid is all kinds of adorable - he's smart, unintentionally funny and wears grandpa cardigans!

10. Good coffee

Do I really need an explanation?

What makes you happy?

Funny, I love all of these things, too. (Except I've never heard of the boy, but I bet I'd like him, too!)

I love good manners. I love it when my students call me ma'am and when my boys don't let me lift a finger to do anything. It's awesome, and not just because they help me out a lot. I love feeling like we respect one another with our good manners.

Thanks for posting this!
