F is for ... Favourites

Anyone who regularly reads my inane offerings to the blogging community will probably have noticed that I like lists. I like lists a lot. It should therefore come as no surprise that today's bloglet comes to you in the form of a list, specifically a list of favourites.

So I've selected (and answered) some of my favourite 'what is your favourite ...' questions. In doing this exercise, I discovered that I find it quite difficult to choose just one favourite; apparently I like lots of stuff a lot. So these are my favourite whatevers as of Friday 6th April 2012. They may well change in the future.

Favourite film: Tangled. (Give it a go - it's excellent)
Favourite TV show: Sanctuary. (Which returns to the UK tonight! Happy, clappy, flappy dance.)
Favourite musical instrument: Ukulele because I play it. (Saxophone is an extremely close second.)
Favourite author: Daphne du Maurier.
Favourite book: Rebecca.
Favourite holiday destination: Canada.
Favourite colour: Green.

Favourite meal: Chicken korma.
Favourite fruit: Pineapple.
Favourite ice cream: Mint choc chip
Favourite flower: Lillies.
Favourite Greek letter: xi
Favourite Disney character: Wall-e.

Are there any favourites which I've missed?
What are your favourites?


  1. Great list of favorites! Tangled is a great movie and dolphins do look like they are smiling. They couldn't be my favorite animal because I struggle to spell dolphins. I'm more of a cat and dog person anyway. Thanks for posting!

  2. I like lists too. I'm right there with you on the tea and green. Tangled was fantastic! Question about the book you mean the one that was turned into the Hitchcock film way back when? If so, WOW I had forgotten about it and need to re-read it. Love that book and the movie was good too. Great post!

    1. That's the one, although I've only seen a much more recent version with Charles Dance. I actually only read it because I liked the idea of sharing my name with a book, and then I ended up loving it!
