These are a few of my favourite things. (A day early because . . . ) Maybe some of them are your favourites too!
I love them. I know I shouldn't, but I do. And more often than not when I have one, I don't bother to pop it into the toaster. I just eat it right out of the bag. I have never tried making homemade ones, but I see all sorts of recipes for them about. Perhaps I will give them a go one day. I know they are not nutritious no matter how you try to make them so, but I can't help loving them. Funny that because they are not something I ever ate until I was well into adulthood. Favourite one? Hmmm . . . over here you can only really get the strawberry ones and the chocolate ones, although I have on occasion seen a few other flavours such as Oreo Cookie and S'mores.
Cath Kidston. Anything. I love Cath Kidston anything. Its probably a good thing I have such mobility problems and can't go into town much. Not that I have any money to spend there, lol. But I do love a good browse. Everything is so cute and nostalgic looking. I love the vintage look of all her stuff. ADORE. If you are a fan of polka dots and cabbage rose prints then I am guessing you love it too.
I also love Katie Alice. (This is the Highland Fling pattern) I have several of her teacup/saucer/sandwich plate sets. Four to be exact. I only use them on special occasions. I know you should use the good china. I need to use my good china. I will die and it will never have been used and will end up who knows where. I need to use my good stuff, often, not hoard it. (Note to self: Use the good stuff more than on special occasions.)
Curtains with bobble trim. I love bobble trim on anything. My mother used to have some brown and white gingham curtains with white bobble trim. I was in serious curtain envy.
I love pretty cushions. I love cushions. But I always end up throwing them off the sofa when I sit on it because they take up too much room. They look nice sitting there however . . . when I am not. ☺
I just love pom poms and pom pom trim. This is from PomPom and Twiddle. Soooo nice . . .
Old black and white films. This one is Little Women. I don't mind them not being in colour. Doesn't bother me at all. I think they have atmosphere. My favourite all time black and white is Our Vines Have Tender Grapes. I have lost count of the number of times I have watched it. About a bazillion I should think . . . I also prefer the original Miracle on 24th Street to the newer version. Yes, I am a traditionalist.
Bacon. I adore bacon. We only ever rarely have it. This week I experimented with making my own bacon chops. They turned out great. Not quite the same colour as normal bacon because no nitrates were involved, and of course not smoked, but otherwise the same taste as unsmoked bacon. And all natural. Love that. I will do it again!
And all this talk of food is making me want my breakfast so I best dash before I start licking that piece of bacon up there on the computer screen!
A thought to carry with you . . .

In The English Kitchen today . . . One Pan Pesto Fusilli. Seriously tasty and such a quick and easy make! (Plus you can easily cut the quantities down to make less. I made just what you see here, no problem)
Have a great Wednesday! Only two more sleeps! Wow, can't believe its so close! Don't forget . . .
