Day 11/ 31 - List 15 of your favourite things




Fifteen of my favourite things:

  1. The first message Sprout sent me before we met.  Who knew we would be where we are now?
  2. My engagement ring because it conjures up feelings of warmth and fuzziness.
  3. Munch's name band he wore once he was born and his first baby grow.
  4. Letters to Santa, aka me, that my younger sisters wrote when they were young.  I have kept them for coming up to 30 years now.
  5. An oil burner that my brother and sisters got me for my 19th birthday.  It was the year that I left home to go to university.
  6. My Coccinelle handbag.  I purchased it with my first 'grown up' pay packet and worked hard for the money.
  7. My camera to capture all the pictures of Munch growing up.
  8. My diary.  Even though I could use my phone I still prefer pen and paper.
  9. Our home because it is just that - a home.  We have built a life here; one I could never have imagined I would be blessed with.
  10. My big Le Creuset casserole pot.  I have always wanted one of these but could never justify spending the money myself.  It was a present which I use and love.
  11. My treat cupboard in the kitchen as there is always something in it for those moments when you need a treat.
  12. My memories.  They give me comfort and show me just how far my life has come.
  13. My car.  It does not give me any problems and allows me to do the things I cannot if I were to rely on public transport.
  14. The excitement that I feel for our future.  It is unknown but I know we will make it a happy one as a family.
  15. My life thus far.  I have had my fair share of ups and downs but I am where I am today because of them.  I may not be a millionaire in monetary terms but I am in the things that I consider important in life.
