100 Things I Love

Today I wrote down 100 things that I love. A friend of mine once did it and posted it as a note on Facebook and i've been meaning to do it for ages. She recommend it if you are feeling blue or need a reminder as to why life is full of lovely things. Given my antipathy to many things in life, I found this surprisingly easy and enjoyable. No doubt on any other day it would be a very different list but anyway, today I love...

Antique shops, second hand bookshops, Pantone 186, Dualit toasters, bushel boxes, Whitstable, writing lists, sea air, drawing, Marmite on toast, sex, Hendersons Relish, Beagles, organising things, taking photographs, the cold side of the pillow, cricket whites, Angel perfume, Sideways, The Seldom Seen Kid, Doug Stanhope stand up, drawing, FFFFound, Twitter, punting, the smell of new carpet, Peter Blake’s work, My Holga, Crystal Palace dinosaurs, old radios, freckles, weekends, kindness in strangers, selflessness, Stephen Fry’s podcasts, Jarvis Cocker, Paul Arden’s books, Quentin Blake’s drawings, Stripy socks, Dr Seuss stories, Swiss Miss’ Blog, Yorkshire, Flickr, Cambridge, Kodak Brownies, the smell when you come out of the swimming baths, Rich in his Spurs kit, cockles, Henri Cartier Bresson’s drawings, beards, my All Saints shoes, Lullaby of Birdland, red wine, old black and white photographs, cheese, loyal friends, Wichita Lineman, An Affair To Remember, the plaques on Southwold Pier, Pelekas Village, Coraline, BBQ’s on the beach, Basset Hounds, Canvey Island, The Barbican, The Turbine Hall, drinking tea, cooking for friends, bed, the sound of rain on the roof, The Troubador in Earls Court, Caipirhinias, being inspired, receiving a hand written letter in the post, The Tuilleries in Winter, chocolate brown Labradors, Bougainvillea, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, my Macbook, Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts, red shoes, walks on the beach, Bianchi bikes, the Peak District, Eddie Izzard, playing the piano, Moleskine sketchbooks, my iPhone, drinking cider on a hot day, getting someone the perfect gift, ginger cats, my Robert's radio, old cameras, Roald Dahl’s stories, car boot sales, the smell of old books, Richard Hawley’s voice, Helvetica, Converse trainers and lobsters.
