Before I start, let me just announce that I shall be signing books in Waterstones bookstore this Saturday. From 3pm until security throw me out.
(Yes Guy, I know that was your joke, but I hope you don’t mind me using it! You probably got it from somewhere else in the first place anyway).
Well, today I thought I would list some of my favourite things for you. It all started the other day when I was going through some of my children’s old drawings that they had done when they were small. I came across this drawing my son had done of a Wion when he was about six I guess, and I thought to myself how it really is my very favourite drawing ever of a Wion –
So here are some of my other favourite things:
My favourite words beginning with ‘S’
– Serendipity (Isn’t it just the most beautiful word ever?)
– Shenanigan (It’s a mischievous little word isn’t it)
– Sausages (It’s such a funny word, it always makes me laugh)
My favourite example of festive quick-thinking (mine that is)
When my daughter was little, we went to the Christmas fair at her school. While we were lining up to see Santa, an older girl came over and asked her if she was going to see Santa. My daughter confirmed that she was, and the girl said, “He’s my teacher!” I had a brief moment of panic before smiling and saying “He’s ALL our teacher”. Phew.
My favourite flowers
My favourite thing to do that I can do a little bit but wish I could do better
Sing (You’ll get to see a video of me singing at On the Homefront’s virtual party this Saturday. People will be joining in the party by providing recipes and entertainment and allsorts of things in the comments section on the day, and that’s where my video will be. Why not come along on Saturday and join in the fun!).
My favourite theme park ride
The Vampire ride at Chessington World of Adventures. I’m not very brave with thrill rides, but the Vampire ride has it just right, it gives me a bit of a thrill but without terrorising me. I don’t have a photo of me on the Vampire, but I do have this completely hideous photo of me on a different ride which I am clearly NOT enjoying:
My favourite film about a fish that gets fishnapped by a dentist
Finding Nemo (No, it’s not the only film about a fish that gets fishnapped by a dentist. There’s also that other one…you know that one…what’s it called?…well anyway, there ARE others, I just can’t remember them right now).
I think that’s enough favourites for now, but I feel there may be a favourites part 2 coming in the future…
What are your favourite favourites? (Or favorite favorites if you’re American)
