"I like photography, poetry, short stories and a little bit of design. I like to collect things like egg cups with rabbits on them and flowery plates rimmed with gold. I like my art deco mirrors on my wall. I like listening to the jug boil and drinking earl grey tea with milk and sometimes honey too. I like just-baked bread and I like popcorn. I like subtitles on movies, and French films. I like grammar. I like stained glass windows, wooden floors, white walls,
cuckoo clocks, London, twins and soft jerseys."
So inspired, I had to write my own:
"I like books and day time naps, big waves in the ocean, aniseed wheels. I like stickers and stationery. I like my daughter’s shoulders the way they point and curve.
I like lamps. I like children - the way they are real. They say what they mean and they forgive quickly. I like fancy hotel rooms and pens of all colours. I like piles of things to sift through and cotton fabric.
I like writing down song lyrics and watching TV.
I like dressing gowns, After Dinner Mints, supermarkets and cold coffee.
