10 things I cannot live without

My loved ones - my family and friends, you know who you are

Coffee - the bigger the better and if someone else makes it for me, nirvana

Music - in the car, on my ipod and best of all live, upcoming gigs include Glasvegas(again), Primal Scream and the Killers in Belfast, The Signals and The Valentines in ??? I think it's near Linlithgow, maybe Falkirk, I better find out soon and apparently Mr 2 Sox himself is taking me to see The View, any other blogmates want me to accompany them anywhere, just ask away, don't be shy now.

Books - I love reading and always have done, I average about 2 books a week but on holiday will easily read a book a day. Yes, they are proper books, without pictures, grown up ones, the fatter the better.

Blogger - for somone who is as technophobic as me it is relatively easy to do, I love my blog, I love your blogs and I would be so much the poorer if you weren't in my life, thank you for joining me and thank you for letting me share your lives too.

Running - I hate it but I love it, I get so fed up because I don't run in the winter much due to my general wussiness and the fact I won't run in rain, cold or the dark but when I do get on with it, I love the space it makes in my head. Ok and the fact it allows me to eat and still fit into my jeans.

Holidays - God they're good, aren't they ? Throw in some sunshine and you've got me, I will happily go anywhere, I just love new places, revisting places and just not being at home.

Texting - this makes me disproportionately happy, I text all the time, like a teenager. I don't bother with capitals and punctuation much. I adore getting them back too, and if you reply fairly quickly my wee cup of happiness runneth over.

Wine - I like red, rose and fizzy. I now know I can only do 2 or 3 glasses max, it's good to have learned your limits at the early age of 42, I feel.

Kissing - the more the better, I feel I don't get enough of this. I will happily smooch till my lips are frayed at the edges. I want to practice this till I get to Olympic standard.

The tickets for The View are staring at me, trying to tell me to feck CYSM (nice as she is) off and let someone who likes Young People's Music come instead.

Honest dude, you're welcome to come and try to cop off with a 17 year old boy with black shoe polish stripes on his face, while I elbow 17 year old girls with black shoe polish on their faces away from the bar.

Well now I don't feel so bad for just learning my drinking max at the age of 35! lol

I love reading, too. I'm not keen on running, (unless it's necessary to catch the bus!) but I like walking and will walk, rather than drive, if possible.

I am still trying to learn my limit and think I am narrowing it down to a bottle and a half of chardonnay! And I am still only 39! x

lisaq said...

What a great list! I have to agree with all of them...well, except for running. I'm not a runner. I wish I was, I wish I could, but it's just not to be.

'Kissing to Olympic standard...' What a wonderful ambition! Are you in training for 2012?

Laura said...

No thank you for giving me the chance to read all about your life lol.

Katie said...

I'm with you on everything but running. I don't think I've run at all in nearly two years, but I walk four miles a day so I guess that makes up for it!

TOM FOOLERY said...

LOL, kissing behave woman :) TFx

Craze said...

Great list, those are some things I can't live without either.

Nota Bene said...

I thought long and hard about his and decided there's only two things I absolutely cannot live without. One is the love and affection of my boy...and the second is sleep! But your list contains many things that make life worth living! Music...more, more, more. Books too - if only I could work out before I start which ones are worth ploughing through and which ones I get to the end and wonder why. I'm in the early days of blogging...and love it and the people who's bloggs I read. For your running I substitute cycling and for holidays I include snow in with the sunshine. Wine, whiskey, cognac and kissing go together..sometimes!

Superb list and I think you might just have given me the incentive to start running again! We have a gym with all new equipment and we have been very lazy not using it and I am as fat as a fool! I still don't know my booze limit at the age of 51!
