Paul posted a ‘ten things I like’ on his Gottle blog and those who commented on his post would be given a letter to use in our own ‘ten things…’. He gave me the letter ‘L’.
So here’s my ‘ten things beginning with “L” that I like’.
Livorno: A city on the western edge of Tuscany. We visited it when we were on our cruise.
Oscar Levant: an American pianist, composer, actor and friend of the Gershwins.
Lemons: Some of my best baking uses lemons – lemon drizzle cake; lemon sponge; ‘Chilled Lemon’ tart.
Lollys: The ‘FAB’ ones or any that have hundreds and thousands on. They take me right back to childhood.
Ivan Lendl: He is my favourite tennis player of all time
Left handed: Strange as it may seem but I like being left handed. It’s a very exclusive club – Alexander the Great, Michelangelo, Hans Christian Andersen, Queen Victoria, Steve McQueen, Douglas Adams all were left handed.
Lottery: A couple of years ago we got five numbers on the lottery and won £2461. One more number and we would have had a half share of £8m.
Land before Time film: It’s my favourite cartoon film. However I can’t watch it without a box of tissues handy – I’m a big softie !!!!
Licking the mixing bowl: It has to be one of life’s little pleasures, licking the mixing bowl after making a cake.
Lilt zero: The pineapple and grapefruit drink. Straight from the fridge, it’s lovely and refreshing.
A challenge for myself, the ten things beginning With “A to Z (minus L”) that I like’…
