    What puts you on an instant high and brings you joy?

    Is it exercise and the euphoric endorphins released? An ocean swim on a crystal clear day? A friendly smile from a stranger on the street? A gripping book? Wonderful friends and family? What about your pet dog, Sparky? Do you love an insane belly laugh that brings tears to the eyes and makes you feel like you've done 1,000 sit-ups? Or do you get joy out of free hugs?

    sprinkles says: For me there's no high quite like looking after an injured animal, whether it's a mouse, a dove, a possum or a seagull. The way they trust you to help them is the greatest feeling ever, and when they get better it's like no other feeling on earth.
    Oh, and I do love to watch old 80s soaps like Dallas and Dynasty, and old movies with Barbara Stanwyck, Joan Crawford, Jean Harlow and ..well, pretty much all the old time stars.
    It takes me to another place, and helps get me through back pain and insomnia.
    Plus a cuddle with our cats is a natural high too!

    What brings me much joy is surprise hugs and kisses from my children. But also compliments from friends and acquaintances about my personality and also my appearance.

My husband making me a cappuccino on our coffee machine whilst we watch the birds frolic in the bird bath and get up to antics. Looking at photos of my beautiful granddaughters who are on the other side of the country brings a smile to my face. Listening to beautiful music whilst doing craft work to forget my health problems. Sharing special moments with my soul mate.
