Favourite Things


Let's get personal today!


Today I want to share with you some of my favourite things so you can get to know me a little better. I've used the same approach I did while interviewing my characters, and have drawn up a list. So here it is:


1. Favourite candy?

Chocolate - always chocolate. I love handmade chocolates with decadent fillings and which look too beautiful too. And Lindt but most chocolates will do to satisfy my cravings: Whispers, Flakes, KitKat, Whispa... Ooh, let me stop there! (I bought these at the little chocolate shop in Hogsback.)



2. Favourite song?

This is a difficult choice. I have so many favourite songs, it just depends on the mood but let me choose one. I love the song, and it doesn't matter if it is an old song or not, and several people had sung it over the years, I absolutely still love Elvis Blue's audition in South African Idols with Make you feel my love, originally sung by Bob Dylan.
