You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid’. She finds it hard to be happy.

So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything worth living for.

1. Ice cream

2. Water fights

3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV

And as you grow, so does the list.

324. Nina Simone’s voice

761. Deciding you’re not too old to climb trees

1007. The fact that sometimes there’s a perfect song to match how you’re feeling
