Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What are three words you would use to describe your 2011? | caring, learning, growing. 

2. Do you like shrimp? What's your favorite way to have it prepared? | Yes, I love shrimps served with brown bread and butter.  If you mean prawns .... any way they come is alright by me!

3. Is your house de-Christmased? If so, when did you tackle that job? If not, when will the decorations come down? | Yes, Christmas is definitely finished and packed away in boxes ready for December.  I took the trimmings down on January 2nd ... three days too early but we'd both had enough of them.

4. Do you like to watch scary movies? | I don't like horror films but I do like thrillers & 'who done its'.  I'm a bit of a wuss though and resort to watching the scary bits from behind a cushion!

5. Ice skating~sledding~ skiing~snowboarding...of the four listed which wintertime activity do you most enjoy? | I've never tried snowboarding and have no intention of starting now.  I went skiing and ice skating in my youth and they tie for first place although I wouldn't be prepared to risk injury by doing either of them now.  The same goes for sledding ... a happy memory from childhood that will always remain a memory.

6. Did you have a childhood hideout? Describe it. | All the children in the road used to congregate in a neighbours shed (it was huge, made out of old window frames and filled the width of their garden) and I have fond memories of lots of time spent in there.

7. What's a place or space that motivates you? | I can't think of any place that 'motivates' me. I do a lot of thinking and 'sorting out' soaking in the bath.

8. Insert your own random thought here. |


  1. love the random thought --- so very true and I'm finding that out the hard way. And I hear ya about the scary movies lol. Hope you have a wonderful day!

  2. Hi! I am stopping by from Hodgepodge. I like your three words to describe your year. Soaking in the bathtub sounds like Heaven! I need to do that more often. =)

  3. Hello Eileen Thank you so much for leaving a comment and following my blog I'm in need of followers lol. I love your list of 52 things to do in 2012.
    I moved to wincanton back in April and have promised to explore the area more with my camera this year. And I to would love to go to Bath and enjoy tea at the Pump room I also want to visit the Jane Austen museum. They also have a Jane Austen weekend some time in June I think.
    Its nice to have a friend in blogland who lives so close.
    Have a good week

  4. I'm with you on the horror movies! Give me the puzzlers and thrillers any day, but no horror. Loved the new Sherlock Holmes!
