I know a couple of weeks ago I said I would get around to writing a blog on my pets and my pet peeves, and I covered my pets, but today I will avoid writing about things that annoy or irk me because, well, in the grand scheme of things given the events in Manchester and around the world recently, they’re not that important. Instead, because I’m a man of the people (even though a lot of them really do my head in), I have decided to list a few things that I love/like/admire instead. We need positivity today and every day. Let’s start with my little blog, shall we?
The smell of my mum’s rice pudding cooking. She gave me the recipe, but it will never be the same. And it tastes even better than it smells.
People with pets who treat them like family. Pets are not just there to keep us entertained. Pets are there to keep us loved and be loved as well. People who love their pets are pretty fine people in my books.
Random acts of kindness – whether it be people bringing sweets in to the office, someone giving up their seat on the metro or bus, or just lending a hand when not necessary. I really like that.
That one shot per round of golf I play where I can hold the “tv” pose because the ball has gone exactly where I wanted it to.
When the guy who cuts me off in traffic and is driving like a fool is stopped by police a little further down the road.
When I’m the only person on my quiz team to know an answer and I get to remind them of it for the next month.
That Nicholas Cage was not cast as Aragorn in the Lord of the Rings films.
Teachers. Sometimes they’re the only ones trying to educate kids properly.
Safaris. Nothing further needs to be said.
French toast. French fries. French champagne. French kissing.
Nice firm seedless grapes. I hate when they are squishy.
This should be a good starting point. Please comment and tell me some of your favourite things. Be silly if you want, or serious. But I’d like to know.
