    Music,imagine a world without music 😥.
    I love a nice fresh changed bed too feels lovely.
    Friendly cats and dogs I love too.
    Cheese on toast is lush but I can’t eat it anymore I have a damn gallstone ( I’ve christened it Charles after Charles de Gaul) and cheese really sets it off.
    Time to myself I love watching documentarys or reading and adult colouring.

      Crikey, life without music! At the moment I’m checking out ‘Snarky Puppy’ (a friend of a friend is the keyboard player). They mainly have a retro funk and jazz sound (I know, bare with me) but with New Orleans/Chicago blues and jazz, rock, Latin and hip hop influences.

      Cool 🙂 I have a food intolerance to dairy but cheese on toast is my winning snack everytime I’ve had a few beers lol

    These are sooo good! #2 made me laugh! Rain is only good when you’re not anywhere near it. #4 I have a pair of Eeyore pjs (and I want more!) It’s so hard to pick which one to be a favorite!

    PS: I wish Tom Hardy read me a good night’s story! 😀
