  1. Excellent! Another opportunity for a “Chris Evans” Top Ten bloke type list… plus two!

    My favourite things:

    1. Rejoicing in how amazing my wife looks… I do this a lot!!!
    2. Watching F1 races… especially Monaco, Monza, Spa and when Ferrari win!
    3. Admiring classic Alfa Romeos and driving Alfa Romeos.
    4. Taking in the air on a cool summer’s morning – before it becomes a warn/hot day.
    5. Taking in the air on a cooling summer’s evening – after it’s been a warm/hot day.
    6. The views when skiing in Austria and walking around fabulous towns, like Seefeld… but not the views from tall buildings!!!
    7. Looking at twilight photos taken of cities (especially London) and piecing together the evidence to work out what time of year it is? what time of day? What’s the story behind every light being on in every building?
    8. Looking at the Vintage Rolex watches in the Antique Watch Shop in the Burlington Arcade, Mayfair. Wondering why they’re in a shop window rather than on a ancestors wrist!
    9. Making the most of those “quality NOT quantity” life experiences – the ones you never forget! We’ve got some good ones coming up over the next few months; including lunch at Pierre Koffmann’s!
    10. That feeling of been truly alive, rather than just existing. Always experienced in particular when I’m in Italy or watching programmes about Italy.

    and the plus two:

    11. The sound of waves crashing on a shoreline.
    12. Watching three badly dressed, middle aged men, “dicking around” on TV… but the BBC has put a stop to this!!!
