      LOVE #85 and #64! Nothing beats drinking a cup of warm green tea and eating chocolates or cakes while hubbing for me :) Like your list! I really think I should make one for myself, just a reminder of the things I should be thankful for. Voting your hub up and awesome!

      It's great! Though I think that "Getting on the scale to discover that you've lost a lot of weight sense you last checked" should be on there additionally.

      When you're sick it just hurts, but the rest of the time there is a great satisfaction in sneezing!

      Thanks for commenting :)

      You don't have to be bored, but it helps! Besides it seems like I only ever watch it/find it is on when I am bored! Maybe I'm just a boring person ;)

      But yes, I'm back! Sorry I left guys, I've spent the last 3 weeks doing Police Training! Regular service will be resumed...Probably.

      Yay you're back! I have to say I agree with most of this list... and 'Come Dine With Me' - you don't have to be bored, surely? The voice over man is a genius!
