100 Things I Love About England Pt.1

11 Jan 2012

I recently finished off a '100 things' series inspired by Sofias Journal, which I really enjoyed writing. Writing about the 100 things that made me happy cleared away any writers block and gave me something fun to blog about.. so I've decided to do a second series documenting 100 things I love about England. If you guys want to do your own series like this then feel free, it would be fun to see the reasons you love where you live :) 


#1 Only Fools and Horses
Arguably the most classic of all British comedies, this programme is amazing. I used to watch it with my mum and dad when I was little, then with my brother when he came along, and now I find myself watching it with Luke whenever it's on the Gold channel.

It never gets old.


#2 Full English Breakfasts
When I went to America they seemed to find it weird that we eat beans with our breakfast...


#3 Sunday Roasts


#4 Harry Potter
OK OK, so everyone grew up with this series, so really it belongs to everyone, blah blah, but the fact is - an englishwoman created this, and that is definitely a reason to be proud of our heritage ;)


#5 The Royal Family
Mostly they're boring.. but sometimes we get some pretty good scandals out of them, such as 'who is really Harrys father?' and 'did the queen kill Diana?' .. always fun to read about.

Also, how good was that wedding last year? And how cute is Prince Harry? Between him and Ron Weasley, I'm definitely getting a thing for gingers


#6 Indie music..
Because indie boys do it better.. at least, they did when I was 16.


#7 You can be anywhere in the country within a few hours


#8 We have some really good animal charities, Cats Protection and the RSPCA to name but a few.



#9 Walks in the countryside, and lunch at country pubs


#10 Tea!
Because who needs coffee?

  10. Yay Tea! There is way more to love about England than anything where I live.
    And Prince Harry is about the cutest thing to ever hit earth. If he visited near us I would be plotting ways for my daughters to lose a shoe in front of him ; )
