What is your favorite kind of bread? (wheat, white, rye, sourdough, a gluten free type, etc.)
I just love bread..the baking, the smell, the taste. I know its not the best for you, but I have a weakness for white bread, especially when its toasted. I always remember my grandmother making her Cottage Loaf and putting the handle of a wooden spoon through the layers to make a hole and join the two halves of the loaf together. By the way..did you know its National Toast Day here in the UK. Im smiling.....

 Would you go to an opera if someone you know was in it?
Of course...but I prefer operetta, I especially like Gilbert and Sullivan, especially the Pirates of Penzance. I was in it at school...very British and great fun

What is your favorite kind of citrus fruit?
At the moment its Satsumas. I could eat them til they come out of my ears


Are you doing any home renovations or decorating projects?
Funnily enough, on Friday I'm wallpapering a wall for my daughter. I quite like decorating so its no chore

If you could sit in a rocking chair and view a beautiful scene, where would you be and what would you be looking at?
My ideal place would be anywhere in Hawaii as I've always wanted to visit. But thinking about it, there is nowhere more beautiful than where I am now...Wales. Hows this for a view?


Thats it for another week. Hope you enjoyed it. Im looking forward to the next one.

Love and Hugs

  1. Oh, my word, that view is awesome. I can see why you wouldn't want to go anyplace else!!! By the way, I love your header....is that your home?

  2. What a lovely view and I love that loaf of bread. I can't make homemade bread as I would eat the whole loaf.

  3. i was in "Pirates of Penzance" in grade 7. Love your view from your rocking chair as well.

  4. My son has a "gal pal" who is from near London. I told him he better stay with her, as I want to move to GB, LOL. Morgan aka London is a very lovely girl, I love the way she speaks. I so could live where you are..very beautiful. Blessings

  5. Wales is on my to visit list, ever since I read Jeannie McMullen...think that's how her name is spelled. I adore her books and read them every year or so.
    The photo of Wales is beautiful!

  6. I agree with Debbie, that view in Wales is awesome! I really enjoyed visiting your blog!

  7. Beautiful view, and I have never heard of Satsumas...I thought I knew all the citrus fruits...I could eat them until the cows come home.
    blessings, jill

  8. I love fresh baked bread of all kinds. That's why I choice to make it too often. I don't need those horrible to get rid of calories. Your view from Wales is lovely. Satsumas look like tangerines. Do they taste similar to them?

  9. I like an operetta too. What a lovely view!
