Am delighted that Kate at Kate Takes 5 has resurrected Listography. I have always enjoyed writing to a prompt, especially as even I sometimes run out of things to say. This weeks theme is Simple Pleasures, and here are mine.
1) Bread and Proper Butter
The bread should be fresh, white and crusty, and slathered with more butter than is entirely necessary. It must be proper butter, because I can believe that the other stuff isn’t the real thing. If only allowed one food for the rest of my life it would be this. I have shocked you haven’t I – you thought it would be biscuits…well, they would be next, and a nice bit of cheese too, while you are there.
2) Noisy Rock’n’Roll
Nothing lifts a grey day, or indeed any sort of a day, more than listening to a bit of raucousness, loud. Down and dirty rock’n’roll all the way for me please.
3) A Good Book
I love reading. I have too many books, and find it hard to part with anything I have read and loved. When I am old you will find me in the last remaining uncluttered corner of a rambling house that is crammed with books in every available space, and I will be in an armchair, under a blanket, reading a good book, oblivious to the chaos that surrounds me.
4) A Giggle
A proper, tears and all laughter moment is such a bloody awesome thing, even if you run the risk of needing to change your pants afterwards. And in life you really have got to laugh, but….
5) A Rant
A rant can be just as good. We have them in front of Question Time and Newsnight regularly. We don’t really come to any world-changing conclusion, but the act of ranting at the ridiculous politicians does make me feel better, as does throwing shoes at the telly.
That’s mine, what are yours?
