Gosh it's been rainy here, and naturally, now that the bank holiday is over, the rain has stopped. More on my rainy day activities later, because in the meantime, I was tagged by lovely Joanna of JoannaBags and i will be as naughty as her by copying the rules from her blog to mine:

I have to answer 6 questions about myself. At the end of the post, I then tag 6 people and post their names, then go to their blogs and leave them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read my blog. Then, I must let the person who tagged me know when I’ve posted my answers.

What was I doing ten years ago - 1998

Ten years ago I had been married for nearly a year, our son was 3, and we lived in a house which could most accurately be described as “squat like” ... not that we were living in a squat but we had bought it after 2 chaps had lived in it for 10 years. They had never decorated and held parties all the time. When people found out which house we lived in, we usually got a knowing "oh, burt's house" followed by a grimace which said "rather you than me". But though, when we moved in, there were walls and floorboards missing, no carpets and no kitchen to speak of, it had a great great atmosphere and we were very happy there. When we put it on the market 3 years later, it sold (unbeknown to us) within 10 minutes of being for sale, to the woman who had made our wedding rings.

5 things on my to do list for today

Make a cake, make dinner, do some computer housekeeping, deliver a birthday present, jot down an idea for a bag.

Snacks I enjoy

Cake, doritos with melted cheese and salsa, sprouted sunflower seeds, Halva

Things i would do if i was a billionaire

Hmmm.... very difficult .. I think that after making sure my family and friends were all secure, I would buy land .. lots of land. Land here in the UK - forests, woods, farms, fields. I would turn them into nature reserves or even natural burial grounds, something for posterity and preservation so that developers couldn’t get their sticky mitts on it ... and I would also buy swathes of rain forest for the same reason, and any other places of natural beauty that were under threat.

Places I have lived

Durban, Edinburgh, Bournemouth, Oxford

Great to read a bit more about you. My father in law bought some land eons ago and planted thousands of trees - he goes up there and sits amongst it all contemplating life - its very peaceful and tranquil. He loves it!
