I've been tagged by the gorgeous Mrs Sutton at The Hill House Diaries. This is how it works: I have to answer this list of questions that Mrs Sutton put together and then I have to tag four more people.

1) What is your ultimate dream job?

Okay, this is going to sound super-corny but, honestly, being married to my husband and being a stay-at-home-Mummy is my dream job. Maybe job isn't the right word but it was my plan  growing up. Yes: marry at 21 and babies by 22. And that's what I did. I think I have a planning disorder. :-)

If I had to choose a regular job, I don't know what I'd pick because I change my mind every few months according to my current obsession. Artist, interior desginer, Management Consultant, gardener....

2) If you could live anywhere where would it be?

The Cotswolds, where we live, are stunningly beautiful. I'm not normally a girl who gasps at country views but, we knew we were coming 'home' the first time we visited because my husband and I both simultaneously said, "Wow! Look at the views".


I do sometimes dream of what it might be like to live in small town America. Warmer weather, everyone knowing each other and baking apple pies. Wisteria Lane, anybody? That could be me. :-)

See that house? That's mine, that is....

3) If you could wake up tomorrow during any period in history - when would it be?

I wish I was alive when Jesus lived so I could have looked into his eyes and see his love for me.

4) If you could eat only one more meal, what would you eat?

Savoury pancakes made by my Mum, followed by stewed apples and whipped cream, errr....also made by my Mum. What? Do you think I'm going to cook my last meal? I don't think so. Plus, there's nothing so homely as my Mum's cooking. And I think I'd want to be feeling homely if I were about to die (last meal, people.....).

5) What made you start a blog?

That's a guilty face, if ever I saw one. What *is*she looking at on there?!
I used to hate the idea of blogs....that is, until I read one!! I first read Helen's and fell in love, and then somehow found Mrs Limestone's, and that love was cemented forever. I think I should have waited a little bit longer before jumping straight in with both feet....so please bear with me, learning on the job!

6) What is your favourite item of clothing?

My wedding dress. I only wish I could wear it every day!! It's so beautiful. The other day, I put it on and my children pretended to be bridesmaids, a page boy and my eldest son pretended to give me away,like the Daddy. We played Pachabel's Canon, which I walked down the aisle to, and my husband stood at the end of the house, while we processed towards him. Needless to say, I cried. But it was such a special thing to do as a family.

7) What is your favourite film?

The Parent Trap with Hayley Mills. I loved it as a child and now love it all over again as an adult. I love the 'getting your parents back together' theme and the unbelievably happy ending. Gets me every time. So, sooooo happy.

8) Is there anything that you would love to achieve/do/see before you hit 100?

My realistic dream is to have a beautifully finished garden. Climbing frames and tricycles rather get in the way at the moment. 

But my 'out there' dream is too walk on the moon and look back on Earth. I think it would give you a whole different metaphorical, as well as literal, perspective.

So that's a bit about me!
