A Little about Me

To give you a little insight into what I like, I would like to share a few of my favourites

Books

I love reading but I must confess that I haven't read as much as I would like this last year or so but I am determined to address this and have challenged myself to read at least one book a month for the next year. I'll keep you updated of my progress - if any.

These are a list of some of my favourite books or authors



I love Adriana Trigiani books, and have been a fan since her first book Big Stone Gap.

Other writers I love is Amy Tan and Fannie Flagg. All write so beautifully and in my head, their books are like mini movies.

I have to add Jane Austen to my list- I'm not really one for the classics, but she is an exception.

Other books I have enjoyed is the Time Travellers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, To Kill a Mockingbird ( a favourite since reading this at High School in English) and a book recommended to me by my Mother in Law called The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom.

Movies

Some of my favourite movies- those that I can watch time and time again are:

  • It's a Wonderful Life- happy memories of watching this classic movie with my Mom when I was young, and also recently with my Mother In Law
  • The Mirror Has Two Faces

  • You've Got Mail

  • The Wedding Planner

  • Any of the Shrek Movies

  • Field Of Dreams

  • Anything by Disney - I'm a big kid at heart

Food and Drink

I love my food (hence on a diet). Here are some of my favourites at the moment

  • Curry - I just love curry but at moment trying not to have too often

  • Chinese Food - currently experimenting with the help of Ching He Heung books and my local Win Yip supermarket
  • Starbucks coffee - and hot chocolate - with lashing of cream of course ( a real occasional treat for AJ and myself)
  • Strawberries - at this time of year they are at their most flavoursome

  • Mango Juice - drinking loads at the moment

Destinations

I haven't travelled much really, but here are some of my favourite places

  • Canada - have been twice and would love to go again and take AJ
  • New York

  • Italy

  • Austria - AJ and I spent our first holiday together in St Johann in Tirol
  • The Lake District - will always have special place in my heart as that is where we got married and where we spent a few days on honeymoon - see pictures below










    Have a good evening and hope to speak soon x
