  1. What a delightful list. Two nights ago I woke up at 3 a.m. asleep in the den —Gerred and two of his life-long buddies were tiptoeing in the kitchen (They're 25 year old men, so think elephants tiptoeing!!!) and they were warming up chili and giggling like little boys. It was the happiest I've been in days!
    Last night I went to a sorority meeting at the home of a woman born one day earlier that I was. She has incurable caner but it is at the moment in control, and she feels well. She was so open, honest, excited about this season of her life… flowers blazing on her deck with little thoughts of the freeze coming tomorrow night… She was the same, blazing with color and beauty… and I was strangely happier than usual, thinking about how much she is enjoying her days… trying to learn what one day's seniority and a terminal illness has taught her.000
    Take care, all. I love the new sections of Brocante, Alison. You never slumber not sleep without awakening with new ideas of fun and delight. What a treat you are!

  2. I loved your post and I had to laugh when you wrote about Finley’s remark…..Familiar sounds of yesteryear for me. Enjoy it; it didn’t last long with my son but my daughter; well she’s a lovie dovie even at thirteen and probably will always be this way.
    The happiness list was amusing and I can relate to quite a few numbers on your list; now I clearly see why I like your blog. Alison, you’ve done a fabulous job with your site, keep up the good work.

  4. As a portuguese, I must thank you for your preference on José Mourinho.
    About my happiness list, I made one some 4 years ago. I must do another now, because so many things changed, for instance, one item was to see my grandmother feeling well and laughing. Now she is not with us anymore.
    Well, I have other good things and I must write them.

  5. What a lovely list. I can relate to so many of them. But I have one extra which is reading Brocante Home every morning when I get to work. I love it!

  7. Oooh, I LOVE your list and am off to make my own list – reading Brocante Home is definitely going to make the list! My grandma whenever someone was sad or moaning used to say, "Count your blessings", and I guess this is a version of that!

  8. I like Finn's hair too! What a cutie.
    Do you ever wonder how many other people were inspired to make lists after reading your blog? I know I did.
    Rather heady to think how you can influence so many ladies with your writing.
    God bless,
    Terri

  11. Very similar-bodering on plagarism:
    1. Male adoration-there is no other buzz.
    2.On an Autumnal Sunday, a glass of rich Claret in my hand, spaniel on my lap, watching Waterloo Bridge, Random Harvest and Little Shop Around The Corner in succession…whilst my darling prepares roast beef and yorkshire puds.
    3. Laurent-Perrier Rose! The bottle, the smell, the taste!
    4. The sea, especially horse riding along the beach.
    5. Scotland, a mystical and magical country
    6. Christian Bale-he must be Bond one day!
    7. BBC version of Pride and Prejudice. Never fails to amuse Tony that I clap at the end.
    8. Moulin Rouge-the film. Ewan, Nicole, perfect.
    9. the legend that is my father.
    10. GYPSYJEWELLSTRINKETS on ebay.

    12. The wry smile that my memories bring to my face
    12a. Revelling in my life as a bon vivant, counsellor and confidante.

  13. I love these lists. Yesterday I was inspired to post my dream list – things to do before I die. Today I'm going to start my happiness list. What a dreamy way to spend a rainy day!

  15. Thank you for the compliment about 'A Rainy Night in Soho'.
    I urge all you ladies to read the lyrics to my other favourite song, 'Misty Morning Albert Bridge' and dream of what could be.
    Love
