I was in two minds about taking part in this weeks Listography as Kate is asking for our guilty pleasures and as I have too many to list this one could be a toughy for me, not to mention the potential to lose all my readers when you realise how sad I am. Ok, let the soul baring begin…
Balding men are not normally my cup of tea but there is something about his huge enthusiasm for current affairs that I just love. One of my biggest treats is Hubby taking the kids out on a Sunday morning so I can watch The Andrew Marr Show with a cup of tea and a biscuit or two without interruptions. More often than not he is unfortunately replaced with Fireman Sam.
I like very many ‘credible’ films but I cannot help myself when it comes to Armageddon. It’s like a compulsion. Whenever I come across it (and that’s a lot when you have Sky!) I have to watch it. I honestly couldn’t tell you how many times I seen it but I always laugh and sniffle and then have ‘I don’t want to miss a thing‘ stuck in my head for the next 3 days.

The less said about this one the better I think.
Women are supposed to like looking round clothes shops, aren’t they? Not me. Give me a WH Smiths anytime, or even a Staples. I love stationery in all its forms, the multi coloured post-it notes are a particular favourite, and you can’t beat finding a biro that’s nice to write with. I once had a job that meant I had to be in charge of the team’s stationery cupboard and all related ordering and was in absolute heaven. Where’s my Office Depot catalogue…
Singing along very loudly in the car
On my way back from last weekend’s wedding I realised that the contents of my iPod closely resembled the previous night’s disco. Lots of power ballads, easy listening, 90’s pop/rock and the odd recent party tune. This is because singing is compulsory in my car and must be done with enthusiasm despite the fact that I really can’t sing (and I’m not trying to be modest there, I mean REALLY can’t sing). Perennial favourites include Bon Jovi, REO Speedwagon and Avril Lavigne (and The Prodigy, although you never hear them at a wedding).
