Friday Favourite

Written for (Maggie) and here is my list of my favourite things.

Who was your favorite relative? Not to play favorites, but who was the person you connected with more than others? Aunt, uncle, cousin, grandparent, or parent? Why were you closest to them?

I was very close to my dad, and he is still someone I would class as a hero. Not only because he was the best role model, and I could easily talk to him knowing he would always listen to me. I was seventeen when he died, but I always think he is with me, watching over me and all his family.

What was your favorite TV show? Share a clip if you can find one.

Paul Michael Glaser was and is my favourite actor of all time. I loved this show, and nothing would stop me laying in front of the TV, watching this show. Nobody else was allowed to watch anything else.

What was your favorite book or favorite family story? My favourite book as a child was Katie, my first paper back, and a female heroine, before it was popular. I have many favourite stories from family. I was brought up where we went on lots of family outings, played cards, and came together as a family.

What was your favorite, song, record, or album. Feel free to share a YouTube video of it.

Living on a prayer, by Bon Jovi.

Who was your favorite teacher? What grade were you in and what subject did they teach?

Mr and Mrs Bobbett, in my junior school were a married couple, who I remember as being kind, and supportive. Always listening to you if there were any problems. Not judgemental in any way.

What was your favorite subject (not teacher) in school? English, I’ve always loved writing.

Who was your favorite (aka best) friend? What things did you do together? My bestie is called Theresa. I met her on my first day at secondary school. She was sitting on a railing, and I didn’t want my secondary to be as lonely as my junior school. I went up to her, introduced myself. She was a confident person and always brought out the best in me. She moved to America when I was fifteen, but even with the distance, we remained besties. I love her like she is my sister, and one day I will go and visit America to see her.

What was your favorite way to pass the time?

Writing, whether it be on my blog, or working on my new novel.

What was your favorite holiday? How did you celebrate?

There are two. One is in the Isle of White, I love the relaxed atmosphere, and the countryside. It is a shame, as a lot of it is falling into the sea. The other is Cornwall. One holiday we went to a Cornish cider tasting place, and me and my mother-in-law did a few rounds of tasting, followed by a long sleep afterwards. We stayed in a tent and spent the evenings outside. My daughter asked her nan to read a bedtime story, and she said ”I can’t see”. Followed quickly by ”Turn on the light”. Her nan said, ”I still can’t see”. We laughed together. Also, my mother-in-law would be the person I could have a laugh with, and we always were close.

What was your favorite toy or possession? Doll, camera, radio, bicycle?

My favourite toy was my collection of Cindy dolls. I had a big bag, which I used to take to my next door neighbours.

Bonus: What was your favorite adventure? Family trip, amusement park, field trip, or vacation perhaps.

I haven’t got a favourite, but I love going to theme parks, and my favourite ride is Nemesis. The first time I went on it, I was really nervous, but have been on it many times since.

One thought on “Friday Favourite

  1. I am sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your post. I was very close to my Dad, too. No one could ever take his place. I had not heard of Cindy dolls. I tried to look them up. I did find some, only spelled with an S so I am not sure they are the same. Thank you for taking the time to respond to the questions it is always fun to read your responses.
