- Soup. The wonderful smell of Nana's vegetable soup is currently wafting in from the kitchen. There is no better reminder of home and warmth than wintertime soup.
- Pudding. Some diet in January, I eat sugar in search of hope at the bottom of a bowl. And I love to see my kids' eyes light up at the mere mention of the word.
- Caffeine. Because I haven't slept properly in three years, but my trusty coffee mug has stood by me through it all, even when I lost the ability to form sentences and ceased to have any apparent hairstyle.
I know there are some far more legitimate reasons to be chipper, and for these I look to the lovely Mummy From the Heart (thanks, such a nice idea).
