Cee’s Share Your World always asks some interesting questions. What would you answer to these interesting ones?
If you were to pack a basket for pinic lunch, what would be in your basket?
I’ve always wanted a proper picnic basket, to take out into the country and find a nice spot to sit, and unpack something for delicious for lunch.
In my picnic basket I would pack some cooked chicken drumsticks, a quiche, a bowl of salad, some grapes, hard boiled eggs, Brie and French bread. And some wine, of course. And I would need to have proper cutlery, real plates and glasses, no paper plates or plastic beakers for me!
On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep?
Definitely a decent pillow. And I wouldn’t sleep on the ground or in a tent, so you can forget that. I need the room to be very dark, and very quiet. So a hotel room above a nightclub wouldn’t do. Most importantly, I would need a private ensuite bathroom with large bath and super fluffy towels.
If you were to buy a new house/apartment what is the top three items on your wish list?
As I’m very unlikely never to be buying a new house or apartment in the future, I will tell you about the things we wished for when we moved house last year. I wanted a log burning stove in the sitting room, a spare room which could double as a sewing room and a spare bedroom, and a private garden with a man shed for my husband. It also had to be five minutes from the beach and from the town centre, and near public transport links. And believe it or not, we found a perfect garden flat which had all these things!
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I shall be back on our boat in Greece in a few days, so I’ve appreciated the time I’ve spent with my children and grandchildren, as I won’t see them again for several months…..
