          I am making sneaky plans to take a short break in Scotland (maybe Edinburgh) even though I really shouldn’t be thinking about a holiday.

      I know, I had exactly the same feeling reading your list. I am so glad you tagged me, this was such a fun post to think about. Made me realise how special some things are.
      Have I mentioned cider is tricky to get here? I have to venture into a specialist beer store to get it, but I will and have one this weekend πŸ™‚

    E-readers are awesome! I find they don’t strain my eyes as much, for some reason.
    “I once said: Give me an onion and I am happy…” LMAO – my SO is like you, he LOVES onions. I find they’re just fillers or flavouring, I don’t eat them.
    Scotland is so dreamy!
    Have you ever eaten black sesame ice cream? It’s like peanut butter but with a roasted flavour… I am salivating at the thought now.
    I’m creeped out by cemeteries but I can definitely appreciate the beauty of them.
    I agree: returning home after a long trip feels SO good! Don’t get me wrong, I love travelling but just something about coming back to HOME that’s so comforting.
    Loved reading this! πŸ™‚

      So I have a thing for onions…and loads of other food stuffs (thankfully not just onions, that would be weird).
      Black sesame icecream is also really lovely, I slightly prefer peanut butter but they are very close.
      Same here, travelling is amazing, but it is just so nice to sleep in your own bed and use your own shower every once in a while. I always joke I would like to go home for a weekend, do laundry and return πŸ™‚
