What makes you float on Cloud 9?

You’ll be floating on Cloud 9 after reading DON’T WANT TO MISS A THING. We asked readers to tell us what else makes them feel on top of the world, and here are just some of their fantastic answers:

When my little boy of 5 – Charlie – comes home from school clutching a 'Star of the Week' award for sitting nicely on the carpet or being kind to others. My heart goes whoosh....it’s the little things!

For me to have all three of my sons in the same room at any one time is bliss as they don't live in the same country. Watching them hugging each other brings tears to my eyes. They range from 23 to 30 years old. That is my cloud 9.                        

Spending time with my boyfriend. He's my first boyfriend and we didn't meet until I was 38. We are so happy together. I never thought I would meet anyone to share my life with. There is someone for everyone.                    

The most perfect times are when it’s me, my husband and our 3 teenagers. We’re all sitting around our breakfast bar listening to old Now Cd's playing spot the intro, kids taking the mickey but knowing all the words to Wake Me Up Before You Go Go! Perfect.     

The sight of my husband of 50 years smiling at me as I kiss him first thing every morning.       
Sitting with friends and the feeling when your stomach hurts because you've laughed so much and so hard.

Dexter Yates loves his fun, care-free London life; he has money, looks and girlfriends galore. But everything changes overnight when his sister dies, leaving him in charge of her eight-month-old daughter Delphi. How is he ever going to cope?

Comic-strip artist Molly Hayes lives in the beautiful Cotswold village of Briarwood. When it comes to relationships, she has a history of choosing all the wrong men. Leaving the city behind, Dex moves to Briarwood - a much better place to work on his parenting skills - and he and Molly become neighbours. There's an undeniable connection between them. But if Dexter's going to adapt, he first has a lot to learn about Molly, about other people's secrets...and about himself..
