Where, when, what...

... blatantly taken from Expat mum, who in turn got it from London mum

Where were you 5 years ago?
We were living in an old farmhouse, on a working farm, deep in rural Cumbria. 3 miles from the nearest shop, with cows our nearest neighbours. Surrounded by fields, our kids played in the gardens, lanes and fields safely. I ran them to and from town, a 30 mile round trip once, twice, three times a day. manic by day, laconic by night. I didn't realise how good it all was. How simple.

Where would you like to be in 5 years time?
Happier and pain free certainly.

5 snacks l like.
swizzels loillipops
strawberry shortcake Haagen Dazs

What is on your to do list today?
washing linens
lunch with french conversation

5 things to do if l become a billionaire (or millionaire, even thousandaire would be cool)

get myself a house, with library and garden
own a beach hut
buy some Art


  1. Saz, darling...the wonders never cease...did I ever tell you that I'm infamous for my love of Haagan Daz ice cream? Never has there been such a fan as I!! Well, perhaps, as my soul sister, you qualify ;-) Love, love, love this list! Love you! Enjoy your day! ~Janine XO

  2. Sex as a snack :). Yeah, good idea! Calorie free yummy.

  3. yep your last snack on the list was certainly one of those stop-and-read-that-again moments.

    I'm just off to the coffee/snacks shop here in the office to see if they have any in stock today :-)

  4. Pain free? Do you mean emotionally or physically?

  5. I like you snacks .. especially the last

  6. How normal, how smashing. Great stuff, you always make me smile! I get the feeling we're all in this life together.

  7. Had to laugh at some of your snacks or should I say ONE of your snacks!
    I love your answers to number five. I would love to be able to help in that way too.

    Nuts in May

  8. so sex was bottom of the list!

  9. So your snacks today are gin, sex, and ice-cream for dessert! How utterly decadent! lol

  10. LOVE your five snacks ;-)

    I hope the money fairy stops by and makes your wishes come true.


  11. One of these snacks doesn't belong. Or does it? I have to redefine snacks, I guess.

  12. I just love your new blog look. You were one of my earliest blogger inspirations and still are--of course it's about LIFE, not the blog, but your blog reflects your approach to life, and that's inspiring. Love...

  13. *laughing*

    You always stir up the pot Saz!

    My head snapped around when I read your comment over on Sallymandy's.

    I wish your life didn't feel like that right now. I hope it gets better and sometimes it takes a long time - but when we realize it is ....

    Hmmm - scattered thoughts from me - that's often how my mind works - at least I understand most of it. :0)

  14. Some of your snacks would be good for a meal! ;-)


Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
