I love so many of the same things especially Frankie Boyle and tablet!

I notice a distinct lack of family in the list. Wine before children? I suppose this is a list of stuff, purchasable nouns, interpreting and reminiscing notwithstanding... I fear my list would contain a lot of stuff I daren't mention...

Ms Mac : Sarah makes delicious tablet around Christmas time (hint, hint)

Le Laquet : that's quite a stretch of coastline!

Dick : What, you mean you don't like mediocre wine?

sarah: see above

Beefking: I suppose it just feels a little trite to list the "laughter of my children" type of thing. What sort of thing would you be afraid to list - cutting my toenails sort of things or thrashing friends at word games sort of things?
