My favourite things ...
Raindrops on roses = my favourite flowers - roses and frangipanis
Whiskers on kittens - my favourite animals = cats and orangutans
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens - my favourite season = autumn, snuggled with a good book as gentle breezes blow and soft rain falls on the window.
Brown paper packages tied up with string = my favourite surprise = when I am working in the kitchen and my hubby comes up behind me and kisses my neck or gives me a cuddle
Cream coloured ponies and crisp apple strudels = my favourite food - chocolate
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles = my favourite treat - visiting friends to share a meal
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings = my favourite part of the day - a full moon in a cloudless night sky all yellow as it rises over the hills
Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes = visits from my grand-daughters
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes = cold winter nights snuggled in bed under my favourite blanket
Silver white winters that melt into spring = crisp frosty mornings
When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad, I simply remember my favourite things and then I don't feel so bad. Hurry home my sweet man - 5 sleeps without you is almost too much to bear.
