These are a few of my favourite things. Maybe some of them are yours too!
Jill the Squirrel on Instagram. She is so cute! She also has a YouTube channel. She is adorable. Mega personality plus. I could watch her for hours.
Amish. Anything. I am in love with the Amish. The way of life. The food (especially the food). The people. It is my dream to one day visit Amish country.
Homemade Mac and Cheese. I especially like my sister's recipe for the stove top one. Its delicious. You can find it here. Its a real winner.
Its called The World of Beatrix Potter. Its at Crag Brow, at Bowness-on-Windemere.Interactive exhibits tell the story of Potter's writing and her importance to Lakeland conservation. I hope to go there one day!
Tea Cup and Snack Plate sets. I love them. I don't have one, but I would if I could. If I ever win the lottery I want to collect them. I know. I'm wierd. Its okay.
They can actually be quite pretty.
Travel shows. I am not such a good traveler now that I am getting older. So much hassle involved, with airports, packing, etc. But I am a great armchair traveler. I love to see new places and learn about them.
My favourite ones are Michael Portillo's Great Train Journies. He has gone to some very fascinating places. All by train.
I also quite liked "An Idiot Abroad." (Well, except for the swearing.) Karl Pilkington is the Idiot. In season 3 he travels with Warwick Davis, the dwarf and it is quite funny. Warwick is so positive and Karl is so negative. They quite balanced each other out and it was quite entertaining. I don't think they have made any new ones.
Geneology programs like Who Do You Think You Are. I find them fascinating. But then again, I really enjoy geneology.
Plastic storage tubs. Small ones for food, stackable. Larger ones for other things like bedding, Christmas Decorations, etc. I keep all my stuff in plastic storage tubs. Herb teas, rice, cereal, noodles, gravy powders, etc. Foodwise, things stay fresh and they stack neatly in the cupboard. I put labels on them so I can instantly tell what is what. Our Christmas Decorations are out in the shed. Likewise labeled, etc. They are unbreakable. Washable. Sterile. etc.
And those are my favourite things for this week. What are some of yours?

In The English Kitchen today . . . French Onion Chicken. Done in the crockpot/slowcooker. Sized just for two but easily multipliable. Quite simply delicious.
Have a great Thursday. Don't forget!
