Have you ever been TAGGED..I have now...

by My Melange..who I feel has become one of my good blogging friends. I really don;t know what I am meant to do...but here goes..

What I was doing 10 years ago: Living in Wales. Working for the Post Office at Raf St Athan.
Five things on my to-do list today:
Sort my bag out!!!
Do my washing.
Catch up with all my emails
Catch up with all my blogging friends
Sort out Easter arrangements

Snacks I enjoy:
Olives, Dippers and Salsa, Cheese and Crackers and Pickled Onions.

Things I would you do if I was a Billionaire:
That is so easy...Jump for Joy. Ask my husband to give up his job...well if he wanted too. I would give some money to a charity I used to work for....The MND Association..known as ALS in America. I would help my two boys and my family and my friends ..Move to Italy. Only trouble is I wouldn;t know which part to go to!! Sure that wouldn't be a problem could buy two or three homes. I would then travel round Europe and buy gorgeous items to decorate our new home. Have all my friends come to stay with me. Travel to all the Grandprixs in style!!!!

Three of my bad habits:

Stop thinking...more doing.
Trying to give advice!

Five places I have lived:

Holland - when I was very young. Father was in the Royal Air Force
Singapore - when my father was in the Royal Air Force
Germany - When my ex-husband was in the Royal Air Force
Wales - When my husband was in the Royal Air Force
Oxfordshire - Husband working for Williams F1 - Williams Grand Prix Engineering.

Five jobs I have had:

Helped run the cafe in the Community Centre at Raf St Athan.
Ran the Post Office at Raf St Athan
Card Shop in Daventry Northamptonshire
Worked for the MND Association in Northampton on the Fundraising team.
Hostess for RBS Williams F1 Conference Centre.

and finally...five people who I would like to tag.

1 Sally in Norfolk because she always up to things, very interesting things.
2. Welshcakes Limoncello..she would be up for fun!!
3. Bleeding Expresso....I have been reading her blog for quite a while and love it.
4. Lucillian Delights..her blog is great and would like to know more.
5. A Tuscan View - from Umbria - would like to get to know them better.

I hope you take time to visit all the sites I have added a link too..they are great!!!!


  1. Ooh I actually like this meme...stay tuned :)

  2. This is a good meme - I might even do it myself. Interesting to find out more things about our blogger friends.

  3. Hi Leslie, Sorry I didn;t add your name ..thought I could only do five, very difficult to choose people. xoxo

  4. Anne it was hard but ive done it....leslie i tagged you :-)

  5. Hi Anne. Thanks for stopping by on my blog. I'm new at this and I'm thrilled to meet so many great people. I have to do that meme too.Loved your answers btw.
    Count yourself lucky your grandkids like broccoli. At my house it's an eternal battle. I had to spoonfeed peas to my 4 yr old this evening otherwise there was no way she would have eaten them. Grrr!

  6. Thanks for the link Anne and for stopping by our blog it always nice to get your comments.

    He's seen it and he's thinking about it. Watch this space.


  7. Anne,

    So glad to learn a little more about you!!! Very interesting life you have led :)

  8. Thanks for the link. Will give this one some thought. x

  9. I just found your blog via one of these memes. Not sure which one, I get a little dizzy out here on the Internet sometimes! ;p

    Anyway, nice to meet you! I absolutely LOVE your quote:
    "Life isn't about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself..."

    Is that your personal motto? Did you come up with that on your own, or are you quoting someone? I ask because I want to mention this quote on my blog and I want to get the source correct.

    Ciao! :)


Thank you to everyone for commenting, it certainly makes my day. A pleasure to see everyone of you. Old and New.. Blogging not only opens up the world but gives us new friends.
