Week 15: Brown paper packages tied up with string...

I have been have a fully crappy week. One of those weeks where every thing that can, does. Know what I mean? So I was reading one of my new fave blogs ( and I liked her post about all her favourite things so I thought I would join in, in a desperate bid to cheer myself up. So unlike Maria in the sound of music who lists Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles, here are mine:
My daughter when she is asleep - which does not happen often enough or for long enough!
Online shopping. Not only can I lie in bed, in my pjs with my hair a mess, but I can spend money while I do it...I want to kiss whoever invented this possibility.
Musicals; Annie...Moulin Rouge...The Lion King. Basically any, but the camper the better.
The excited kicking, shrieking and waggling display little CK puts on when Daddy comes home
...handing little CK over when Daddy comes home
Autumn colours
Seeing CK’s BFF (let’s call him Wee Jamesy) assaulting her with cuddles
Cake; lemon, carrot, banana, chocolate, fairy, victoria sponge, chocolate eclairs, are you getting the idea?
High tea - so mannerly, so yummy and so quintessentially English
Counting down to Christmas, the year’s best holiday
Reading with Rosa
My Doc Martins. I know I am like 20 years late and utterly uncool but they are ace and I love them.
Oh and not forgetting schnitzel with noodles - thanks Maria Vonn Trapp for that inspired combo!

Feel free to add yours below - would be good to add to my list


  1. Freshly brewed tea brought to me in my bed
    A book's chapter to read, all alone, like I said*
    [*a concept not always understood by my kids!]
    To ignore the alarm clock at 5* when it rings
    [*that would be a.m., more's the pity]
    These are a few of my favourite things

    A walk on the beach when I hear the sea roar
    My daughter who dances and preens in the mirror
    My son with his band when as frontman he sings*
    These are a few of my favourite things

    And I'm afraid I've run out of steam for a third verse - sorry for the dodgy rhymes!
