These are a few of my favourite things.
Candy Crush. We often play box games when there's any family gathering but I don't play so many online games. I occasionally play Scrabble but I often get my phone out for a quick blast of Candy Crush whenever I've got a few spare minutes, it passes the time if I'm waiting around. Actually, I must have been waiting around quite a bit as I'm now up to level 620! It can become rather addictive and they only give you so many free lives in a certain time period, extras have to be paid for, but I haven't succumbed to that.
Rachel Piso. If you don't know this blog I would urge you to pop over and take a look. Rachel lives in Pittsburgh and is documenting her life in cross stitch. Rachel's named her project her Tapestree and each little bubble is filled with a memory, something to do with current events or something that she's interested in, in other words, things to do with her life. I'm really enjoying following along and seeing each new little bubble being filled up. If you do pop over to take a look, please tell her that I sent you.
Frogspawn. I'm thrilled to bits that my little pond has been used by the frogs again this year. I put this tiny pond in my garden back in 2009, it measures just 84cm x 64cm but it attracts so much wildlife. Last year was the first time there'd been any frogspawn in there but it never amounted to anything so I'm hoping that this year we might just get some tadpoles. Wouldn't that be lovely?
Harry Potter. I remember reading the first four books in the series to Daniel when he was little but he read the rest himself and I never got any further with them. I decided that I'd like to read all the books, starting again from the beginning, so I put it on my 50 Before 50 list. Well, I've made a start this month and I'm really enjoying the first one, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. I wonder if JK Rowling could have ever imagined just how successful Harry Potter would be when she started writing this first book.
Old fashioned sweeties. Weighed out by the quarter, or rather 100g these days, but still taken from large jars and measured out in to paper bags. These are Pontefract cakes and treacle toffees but it's always a big decision choosing from the large array on offer. It's good to see that so many of the old favourites are still available.
