33 of my Favourite Things

I have posted a number of blogs about things that make me grumpy - here for example.

So today I thought I would post about a few of my favourite things.

  1. Firstly, my kids and husband are top of the list. Obvs.
  2. Then my friends and family.
  3. And now it gets a bit strange, I have a favourite meeting room at work. Don't know why I like it more than the others but I do.
  4. Similarly, I have a favourite parking bay (it's number 3). I park in one of those swanky car parks that take your car away and return it the right way round. It's very nice.
  5. My garden is one of my favourite spots to be in, particularly on a sunny day
  6. I like to nap in my pod - that is definitely one of my favourite things to do.
    My pod, invaded by hubs and my smallest child - rude.
  7. In fact napping, full stop is very near the top of my favourite things.
  8. I have a favourite bra, being a larger breasted lady, finding a bra that doesn't dig in and doesn't look like it was made by an architect and feels comfy, is a thing of wonder. When you find that bra, stick with it. 
  9. My favourite insect is a bee - because they are awesome, and make honey.
  10. My favourite pet animal is a cat, but my favourite animal is an otter - because they can swim and look super cool, but also look amazing on land and they are funny, and play and have fun. I want to live somewhere with otters at the bottom of the garden. 
  11. I do like a spider, because they do a great job with flies. Well done them.
  12. I have a favourite seat at work, but shhhhh....because we are supposed to hot desk.
  13. One of my favourite smells is the smell of a new book. 
  14. Another great smell is my first coffee of the day.
  15. I don't like gardening, but I get a great deal of pleasure out of seeing things grow. 
  16. My favourite alcoholic drink is red wine, closely followed by gin and tonic on a sunny day. 
  17. Ohhhh Port at Christmas.
  18. Christmas...love Christmas
  19. And Autumn, and Spring and Summer....I love to see the seasons change, and it is weird these days when the change is less dramatic than I remember as a child.just
  20. My favourite flower is either a Gerbera or an Allium, but to be honest I like most flowers.
  21. My favourite fruit is a tomato, ideally with basil and a bit of mozzarella.
  22. Rather logically my favourite herb is basil - see above.
  23. I have lots of favourite films and pieces of music, they are too big a genre to cover so I won't (same applies to books, food & TV).
  24. My favourite Shakespeare play is Measure for Measure (but I also like Twelfth Night)
  25. But my favourite play is Noises Off.
  26. My favourite cheese, and this is an important one is Comte
  27. My favourite super hero is Tank Girl - which is a bit of stretch, but I see her that way.
  28. My favourite techy thing is my phone, aren't they clever these days. Although the internet is up there.
  29.  My favourite sound is my garden, birds, bees and the running water in the pond.
  30. My favourite pasta is spagetti because it is silly and messy
  31. My favourite poem is The Horses - By Edwin Muir. Its a bit post apocalyptic, but if you like that sort of thing...I do enjoy a gloomy poem. This one always makes me cry.
  32. Crying at films, is an excellent way to remove excess 'feelings' - I am British. Come on. 
  33. My favourite snack is twiglets for more about this - go here
An Allium coming to life in my garden

And that is all I can think of right now, I am a little bit exhausted, and there is definite over use of the word favourite in this blog. So apologies.
