Back from a trip to London to meet up with the most amazing friends, Rosie, Ronnie, Ami and Minelle I find myself wishing it was time to do it all again. I am so lucky to have met you all and received such lovely gifts. For some reason my husband likes Ronnie's present the best!!! he could hardly wait to get back to our hotel room to try that nifty little cane out. We then spent the weekend with Grandbaby who is two this week. It hardly seems so long since I was saying to Ami how much I longed for a grandchild and here she is two already!
I am sitting on the sofa looking out of the window , just admiring the typically English garden that my husband has lovingly grown into our own beautiful space and....
It is absolutely pouring, the rain is hammering down and not expected to stop for a good long while. So thanks to Ella I am going to while away the afternoon completing her latest meme.
1. Name a tender song that can almost make you cry.
"Close your eyes", by Michael Buble. It gets me every time.
2.What is your favourite shade of lipstick? and nail polish? If you don't wear either what do you like or dislike about the shades you see others wear?
I wear a shiny lip gloss in a pale pink and on my toe nails I change colour to match what I am wearing. I never leave it on at night and rarely wear it on my fingers. I don't mind what others wear but I am not a fan of black.
3.Name a children's nursery rhyme or song that you loved and to which you can remember all the words.
The first one that grandbaby took a liking to was "Twinkle twinkle little star" so probably that has become well known around here.
4.What outfit would you put on in the morning if you wanted to feel happy and well dressed?
One of my phase eight or Roman dresses with nude patent shoes, with a little heel. Maybe a nice jacket if it is chilly.
5.If you had enough money to buy just one, would it be a cottage by the ocean or a cabin in the mountains?
Cabin in the mountains, no question.
6.If you are old enough, which one of the Beatles did you have a thing for? If you are not that old, tell us a musician that really did it for you.
Not a Beatle for me, it was .......
Yummy then and ...
Yep, still got it, lol.
7.Name a smell you love, your choice.
Flowers, especially roses. Surprisingly I love the smell of Vanilla too ;)
8.How often do you defuzz your legs? Wax,razor or electric?
In the shower, every day, takes no time at all. Couldn't stand to leave them for days on end!
9.How /why did you choose your blog name?
Seriously that is why, I am stupid .
10.What do you like to eat for breakfast? To drink? Tea or Coffee?
My favourite meal of the day and I could eat it anytime in preference to anything else.
coffee and toast, white bread, proper butter and marmalade.
11.How many siblings do you have? Are you the oldest, youngest or in the middle?
I have one totally amazing brother who is a couple of years younger than me and yes I was the bossy older sister.
12.What is your favourite salad dressing?
None, I eat it as it comes with nothing on it.
13. If you could sit next to anyone (alive) on a long plane trip who would you pick?
If I wasn't sitting next to my husband I would want to be by myself. My kindle and I would be just fine by ourselves thanks.
14.Have you ever gone shopping just to cheer yourself up?
Is this a trick question?
15. If there is one thing that can make you lose your temper what would it be?
I can't think of one thing, I think I must just fly off the handle randomly :( and probably too often.
16.Tell us the best photo you have ever had taken.
Oh gosh I am not keen on photos of me. My husband's favourite is one he took of me sitting on the edge of a fountain in Paris the weekend we got engaged.
17. Have you ever gone skinny dipping and where?
Recently we hired a log cabin with a hot tub to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we were naked in the hot tub all the time, but in a pool or the sea no.
18. What do you like on your pizza? What don't you like?
Just cheese for me, thanks. I am not a fan of spicy pizza or too much meat.
Thanks Ella, that filled in the afternoon nicely.
Hope you are all well and happy
love Jan, xx
