Love it; ginger, ginger cake, chocolate ginger, crystallised ginger, ginger cordial; ginger hair would have been OK, if it had been of a deep auburn shade rather than a ‘carrot top’ hue
Hate it; molluscs, I will not eat anything slimy that has crawled around the sea bed eating raw sewage.
Love it; a children’s (well rehearsed) choir, lump to the throat and tears to the eyes every time.
Hate it; shops that can’t be bothered to open before 10am
Love it; draught bitter.
Hate it; labels in clothes that tickle the back of your neck.
Love it; bats, they get bad press but they are very cute really and there is no finer way to spend a summers evening than bat watching, especially if you can include a glass of something chilled during ‘dusks cabaret.’
Hate it, gladioli flowers, as much grace as a broom handle.
Love it, blue bell woods, its the juxtaposition of the fresh spring grass and the lilac blue flowers,edible.
Hate it, packing for holidays.
Love it; the view from our house, I have looked at it every morning for over fifteen years and it is a joy every day, whatever the weather.
Hate it; children (and even more worryingly babies) with pierced ears, why would anyone want to mutilate their child?
