I love a lot of things but there are 55 thing I love most.
Well, that I could come up with in ten minutes that is.
Writer Judy Lee Dunn recently wrote a blog post called ‘Can you name 99 things you love in 10 minutes?’
And It sparked off a wave of reciprocal posts as others did the same exercise.
It sounded like a fun thing to do so I decided to join in.
But my poor brain doesn’t work well under pressure and it came to a dead halt as soon as I put the timer on.
Consequently I only came up with 55 things I love in 10 minutes.
Here they are.
Note that they are not in order of preference.
As I hastened to assure my partner when he peered over my shoulder and noted that ‘time with my partner’ was number 20.
I don’t think he was entirely convinced.
