... few of my favourite things beginning with A, thanks Mrs Stilettos!

I love animals... anything and everything, but I especially love cats (big and small) and elephants. Here I am with my childhood pet Tabitha, wasn't she adorable?

"Apples & Pears"
I love cockney rhyming slang and I think it's great that new rhyming slang is invented - it keeps the tradition alive!

Now I'm the trouble & strife of Mr B, I do what he says. He wanted to go for a ruby murray the other week and even though I didn't want one, I let him have his way. Well, that night all went Pete Tong... you'll never adam & eve it, but I found a barnet fair in my ruby murray!! Won't be going back there again.

Do you have any idea what I'm saying?!


When I was little I wanted to be Duchess with her sapphire eyes... hmm, that's a bit embarassing!!! But really, how cool would it be, not only to be a cat, but a beautiful, silky-voiced, princess cat? Even now I don't think I'd mind...

My car at the moment is one of these.... (but not this exact one... I don't have a picture saved of it on this computer)

I. LOVE. IT. A LOT. It's small, fast and fun (well, fun except in rain, snow, ice & high winds!!)


I love the taste of aniseed. In Holland there is a food called 'muisjes' - little tiny sugar coated aniseed hundreds and thousands. You eat them on a buttered rusk biscuit... does this sound weird enough yet?! It's really delicious (if you like aniseed). Muisjes come in blue&white and pink&white... and tradtionally when a new baby is born muisjes (blue for a boy, pink for a girl) will be eaten.

Al Green
Our first dance at our wedding was Al Green's Let's Stay Together... perfect!

A Town Like Alice

Mr B and I were lucky enough to travel to South Africa in 2006 and see these amazing creatures in the wild...


  1. I love this! I asked Mrs. Stilettos to give me a letter too!

  2. Cute answers!! I love aniseed too--and was just thinking about it yesterday. We put it in our sugar cookies---but I have NO idea what else you use it for. Thanks for the idea!

  3. What a GREAT idea! So fun! I love your "A's" :)

  4. This was so fun to read! I love the Aristocats too!!! I just babysat for a Spanish family a few months ago, and the little boy wanted to watch Aristocats... But we watched it in Spanish! It was so fun to be able to follow along, despite my Spanish skills being fairly mediocre...
    Hope you're having a wonderful holiday!
