These are a few of my favourite things…

Dogs – I cannot imagine life without a dog in the house. They win the "favourite animal award" hands down.

My computer – I’m happily hooked on it

Eating out – I could quite cheerfully eat out five times a week

Live theatre - especially good, old-fashioned musicals – nothing beats the feeling of anticipation waiting for the curtain to go up.

A lazy weekend – we seem to have so few completely free weekends. I just love going to bed on a Friday night knowing that we have an absolutely empty weekend to fill up doing just what we please.

Prawns – cooked in the shell with lots of butter and a creamy garlic sauce. YUM!

Dark chocolate – this is quite a new favourite thing, since I went off dairy products last year (we’ll ignore the butter and cream in the previous entry!!) I had to find something to satisfy my chocolate craving, so I tried dark chocolate (which is dairy-free would you believe it!) and now I will never know what I saw in milk chocolate.

Books – I could not live without a book beside my bed. My favourite authors are Rosamunde Pilcher, Erica James, Maeve Binchy, Katie Fforde, Cathy Kelly…. and a whole lot more.

Jeans – so easy to wear, they’re comfortable and match with everything. I live in jeans in Winter.

Grey’s anatomy – I am not generally a TV person at all, but I can’t wait for the next season of Grey’s to start.

Autumn – I just adore Autumn, especially inland where you can see the leaves changing and feel the freshness in the air.

Shopping – I confess that I even enjoy grocery shopping, but not on my own, I have to have a side-kick.

Log fires – growing up in the midlands of KZN we had a log fire every night in Winter, bliss.

Ginger Ale – if it weren’t so fattening I would drink only ginger ale!

Magazines – I would read them all if I could, but I limit myself to 4 or 5 favourites

The smell of a pipe – it’s not environmentally friendly I know, but I love the smell of a pipe being smoked – from a distance of course

Fresh linen – it’s absolutely delicious climbing into bed the day the linen has been changed.

Day old chicks – oh that soft, furry-feathered little body, they are SO cute

I'm with you on nearly all of these, but especially dogs, my computer, lazy weekends, prawns, jeans, autumn, log fires, magazines, fresh linen, and day old chicks.

*happy sigh*

Excellent choice to show "you" for the meme :)

2017 in review

2017 has been a strange year.  I started the year with great intentions and some firm goals in mind, but somehow I stalled quite early on in...
