today's letter is B

Cheryl tagged me for the 'letter meme' and for some reason has allocated me the letter 'B'. Here are ten things about me beginning with it:

Biscuits - I dislike Digestives. Even chocolate ones. But I like Rich Tea. And I can't have any biscuits at all in the house, otherwise I eat them all at once.

Bathing - Should be on my CV as a hobby. A glass of wine or a cup of tea and a bathing partner (or a good book, should my Chosen Bathing Partner not be available) is my idea of a brilliant evening in.

Blogging - Easy, this one. My name is Ally and I am a blogaholic.

Bed - The safest place in the world. Comfortable, cosy, stress free and an excuse to purchase new duvet covers on a regular basis.

Ball-games - Are tedious to watch. Mind-numbing. But I used to play hockey. There is nothing like the adrenalin rush of lumbering out of goal in your kickers and pads, waving ones hockey stick (keeping the business-end below shoulder-level, of course) towards someone who is trying to get a goal past you, bellowing incoherently and pulling faces at them through your mask.

Birthdays - Don't much like them. They seem a lot of fuss about nothing, same as all anniversaries, really. And I am absolutely terrible at remembering other peoples.

Brewing - Is fascinating. I mostly specialise in 'white country' wines. Sometimes I do a few reds, which tend towards the explosive and / or undrinkable.

Books - I love books. I possess loads. I like their smell, the way they feel, the mystery behind them. They are the product of someone else's time, effort, research and imaginings and that makes them pretty much all fascinating.

Bullsh*t - Don't like it at all. I like people to say what they mean and mean what they say; and I tend to avoid people who don't.

B - Dear reader, I married him. And jolly nice he is, too.

If you would like to play, leave me a comment and I will email you a letter at random ...


So far, Liss and Carol and Rhys and Ganching have played ...

  1. I know what you mean about biscuits. especially Hob-Nobs. I think 15 minutes is my record. And by that I mean the longest a pack has lasted once opened.

  5. I have the same problem with hobnobs, plain digestives, etc. Luckily they are expensive and hard to find here!

    I don't believe you when you say you are terrible at remembering people's birthdays. You only found out about mine this week, but still I find it quite impressive and lovely that you were the second person to wish me a happy birthday. And you only came in second because the s.o. and I were up past midnight!

  9. Nice list. I can't ask for a letter as I've already done it, so I'll just say - have a nice weekend.

  11. OK I'll play.

    I'm not keen on digestives either, they taste a bit lardy IMO.
