My Favourite (Whitstable) Things!

Hello you lot.  Feeling a bit meh.  So I read the back of one of the wife’s self help books and it said, ‘Make yourself a gratitude list!’

This is it.

Bright plastic buckets and oysters with lemon,
Bracing cold beaches and a pint of Hoegaarden,

Summer beach picnics and a jug of cold Pimms,
These are a few of my favourite things.

Silky smooth beard hair combed fresh free of beard grime,

(The sad bit in the middle)
When the flue chugs,
When the whelks ming,
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favourite things,
And then I don’t feel so sad!

Live music, galleries, delis and cafes,
Flat fish and pinot and chips dipped in mayonnaise,

Seagulls that squawk with the wind on their wings,
These are a few of my favourite things.

Jeans, stripy t-shirt and butterscotch ice-cream,
I’m DOWN FROM LONDON and I’m Living The Dream,

Whitstable sunsets that make the heart sing,
These are a few of my favourite things!!
