My Favourite Things by Anne Cater, Blogger.



Food : Savoury and Sweet
I love food!  I love trying new foods and I’m a keen cook, although I can’t bake!
My favourite savoury foods are cheese; particularly Cheddar and Brie, and anything to do with potatoes.  Chips (proper, home-cooked), mash and my all-time favourite; Jersey Royals with real butter.
My favourite sweet foods are beautifully ripe cherries; I eat pounds of them during the summer.  I also love Wagon Wheels and those chocolate snowballs with marshmallow inside.
Drink: 
I can’t even begin to contemplate the day before I’ve had a mug of strong, milky tea, preferably Yorkshire Tea, I then drink gallons of the stuff throughout the day.  I also always have a bottle of water with me.  My favourite tipple is a glass of French Rose wine, or a pint of cider.
Film: 
I love the cinema and try to go as often as possible. My all-time favourite films are varied and include Mississippi Burning, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, Momento and of course, Dirty Dancing.
Book: 
Ahh, is this a trick question? I have favourite books, but for different reasons. Books often become favourites because of the memories that they hold for me.  The Thorn Birds, A Woman of Substance, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Shadow of the Wind – all of these are very special to me.
Author: 
I can’t answer this. It’s impossible. However, Enid Blyton was my first love, she introduced me to adventure. She started my journey
Character: 
Meg from the Thorn Birds and Atticus from To Kill A Mockingbird.
Song:
Music is another of my passions. Books and music defined me when I was growing up. Again, like books, different songs have different memories for me. Pink Floyd’s Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin, Living on a Prayer by Bon Jovi, Whole Lotta Rosie by AC/DC and ANYTHING by The Little Angels will make me sing ….
Holiday destination:  Our very special place is Arillas, on the North West coast of Corfu. It really feels like coming home when I arrive and we’ve made so many friends there. My little piece of paradise
Animal:
Cats.  My own two; Costa and Nero are ridiculously spoilt and very naughty, but I wouldn’t be without them.
Person:
My husband Martin – he’s my partner and my best friend. We are not a lovey-dovey romantic couple, but we laugh, we laugh a lot.
Place to read:
I can and do, read anywhere.  I really enjoy reading on the train, it’s guilt-free reading time, but laying on a sunbed, next to the pool, in Arillas is the perfect reading spot.
Season:
Spring.  I detest Winter, and the cold and snow and frost.  That first sighting of daffodils and Spring lambs really ups my mood. I love the new beginnings and the thought of the summer ahead.
Inspirational Quote: 
“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace”, said by Jimi Hendrix and tattooed on my arm.

Thing in the whole world:
Being with people that I love. Laughing and sunshine.
