Dear Reader and especially Nicky and Janet
Thank you so much to Nicky and Janet for awarding me this Blogger Award. I was chuffed to pieces but unfortunately my IT skills let me down again and I can't, despite trying very hard, seem to get the award on my sidebar. So I've put it on a blog instead. So apologies Janet for not picking it up before now.
Part of the Award is to name ten of my favourite things so here goes:
1 People (including everyone I love in my life - family and friends and of course my partner Maurice but people in general too)
2 This is bound up with no 1 really - chatting. Can't beat a chat. I think talking is a wonderful cure for all sorts of things.
4 Shopping - in all its forms - actual/window/virtual/Internet/present buying/clothes/food
3 Christmas - I'd have it all year round if I could
4 Food - especially a Roast Beef Dinner or A full English breakfast - but it has to include mushrooms. I love mushrooms so much they really ought to be included at no 5 but I'm squeezing them in with no 4 lol
5Travel but especially Italy - I love everything about Italy - the people (see No 1), the food, the clothes and shoes (best shoes in the world), the architecture, the style, their take on life and love of family, the weather
6 Creativity - in whatever form it takes and wherever it leads you to
7 Paper - always have, always will. I've always loved books, stationery, wrapping paper, etc etc etc
8 Writing - it's creative and therapeutic and links you to people and paper - until t'Internet was born - so ticks lots of boxes for me
9 Luxury - whether it's a really nice chocolate or a night in a wonderful hotel. For me less is more. Unless it's more luxury of course!
10 Laughing. You just can't beat a good laugh and having fun. It's what life is all about.
