Real Happiness

What makes me happy?

What Makes Me Happy

When it is 3:30pm and the school bell rings, I run outside and my Mum and Step Dad give me a fantastic gigantic, big hug. I feel light hearted and over the moon. They love to give me thousands of apricots when I get home because they’re my favorite food. That’s what makes me happy!

When I visit my Auntie, Uncle and Cousin they always give me sweets and chocolate cake. I also enjoy playing with Bailey because he is cute and cuddly. We always have lots of fun. That’s what makes me happy!

My cute sister Ellie I couldn’t live without! We like playing with each other and staying up late, also having lots of midnight feats. My Daddy gets up early but we all lay in bed. I love to kiss her on the cheek and lips. That’s what makes me happy!

When I visit my Nanny and Grandad I normally have a yummy tea. I love playing with Simba, my Nan’s old cat, because he makes me giggle when I play with him. I always have a lovely time. That’s what makes me happy!

When I see teachers, I feel so joyful because I think I am going to have a great, brilliant, warm, safe hug. I also have a smashing time at school, I always enjoy it. That’s what makes me happy!!!

What makes me happy?

My funny lovely parents give me big, nice hugs and cheer me up. I feel happy, warm and safe. That’s what makes me happy!

My friends are really funny and cheerful. I always look forward to playing with them at school, charging around the playground. That’s what makes me happy!

When I see my Auntie and Uncle, they tickle me and I am ticklish. I feel like I really need to scream but instead I giggle. It makes me feel over the moon. That’s what makes me happy!

My lovely home makes me feel very lucky because some people don’t have homes. I feel pleased, glad, and super. That’s what makes me happy!

My x-box 360 is always fun!  I play x-box live which is my favorite game. I feel fantastic, awesome, happy and cool. That’s what makes me happy!

My bed is so comfortable that I go to sleep very quickly because I’m so relaxed. I look forward to jumping into bed at night and snuggling down. That’s what makes me happy!

What Makes Me Happy

Auntie Sue and Uncle John, when we visit them, we get a piece of chocolate cake or buns and a huge hug. When we get in, she puts the radiator on and it makes me feel cosy, tired, and warm. That’s what makes me happy!  

Mum and Dad, when I open the door I can see their smiles on their faces which makes me feel very safe and cosy. That’s what makes me happy!

When I open the door, I can hear Jake, my dog, running down the stairs wagging his tail and jumping up at me. That’s what makes me happy!

Grandad and Grandma, when I go round, I get a really big hug and I do lots of cooking as well, which is very nice, especially when I get to eat it! That’s what makes me happy!

Dean, my brother, I wouldn’t be able to live without Dean because he’s really funny and active and he’s the best brother in the World. That’s what makes me happy!

My friends make me happy because they help me when I’ve fallen over and when I am struggling with my work. They also play with me and I wouldn’t be able to live without them. That’s what makes me happy!!!
