The Name Your Favourite Meme

Finally, I have energy to do more than sit on the couch and knit. Yay.

This week Sunday Stealing is looking at our favourites. Hmmm. Something nice to talk about for a change.

Here we go - lets see if I can get the ironing done while doing this. One favourite, one piece of clothing ironed - sounds like a fair trade.

Favourite Person:

I don't have a favourite person, I have favourite people. A few of these include, Blarney, Dave and Kaz, Glen Waverley and Merijn, Lachlan... I have lots of favourite people. I'm lucky.

Favourite Colour

That's a tossup between Pillarbox Red and Teal.

Favourite Food

Ice cream - that's easy. Good ice cream. Pity I'm off it for the month.

Favourite Smell

Oh, I'm really smell driven. Here are a few of my favourites:

Freshly baked Cookie Man Cookies
Dogs and cats paws in the morning
Clean man
Roast Lamb
Fresh mint
Coffee just after you've opened a fresh packet.

Favourite Book

I'm going to make this my favourite books from last year - because I have lots of favourite books.
In the last year, the three books that really got to me were:

Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan
All the Light we Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Can't recommend them all highly enough.

Favourite Movie

Again, too many to think about - however I'm sitting here watching "The King's Speech" as I write this and iron.

I've also got a great spot spot for "Little Miss Sunshine", and Argentinan film called "The Secret in their Eyes", "Bull Durham" and "Gosford Park".

Favourite Music artist

The Pixies

Favourite thing to do when bored

Read or exercise - one or the other.

Favourite genre of literature

I'm a lit head - the modern novel

Favourite magazine

Currently I'm reading a lot of The Monthly. Great for current affairs in Australia. I don't really read magazines.

Favourite texture

Satin - always has been.

Favourite time of day

First thing in the morning

Favourite day of the week

Probably Sunday, though Friday afternoon is normally pretty good

Favourite thing to learn about

History - particularly English History. I love learning about anything really - learning is one of my favourite things.

Favourite thing about yourself 

I'm lucky that I like myself - but I do like my eyes and my ankles.

Favourite lifehack (a time saving, efficiency technique for life)

Do all your ironing in one go in the evening - that way you never fret about leaving the iron on during the day.
Walk out of the house with your keys in your hand - always - you don't get locked out that way.

I just don't *do* ironing anymore. I should but I don't. I also don't buy clothes that I must hand wash.

Ok, what are "man cookies"?? I really hate ironing....after being forced to do it every Saturday growing up, I have vowed to never do it again if I don't have to.

I don't do ironing any more so I am with Country Dew.

I like my toes but not my ankles. I'm a quilter so I iron. And daytime is the only time I can do it because of the light, but like your tips! They are good ones. And the books and movies tips I'll stalk them on the web. Thanks!

I picked one of the same books--best book I read all year!

Jodi, Cookie Man cookies are from a franchise that bake fresh in shopping centres here in Australia - the smell always reminds me of my grandparents. Ironing is the best thing ever - it's genetic in my family. Kwizgiver, "All the Light we Cannot See" is wonderful - but I do recommend the Flanagan.
