Thank you Catherine over at Atypical 60 for nominating me for the Room 101 Award. Fellow bloggers if you have not had the opportunity to read Catherine’s posts, please do so, her blog is full of fun, humor and educational interesting facts. Seriously, she is amazing!
Okay so the Room 101 Award allows me to banish 5 things, people, events, well basically anything I don’t like into a room full of other exiles. I in no way can outdo Catherine’s list, but I will give it a try.

If you like cold weather, this is for you –
