Favourite Person

My favourite person? Surely I can’t just pick one human being? From my husband for loving me, my son for making me a proud mum, my grandchildren for their special gift of unconditional love, my few friends who will be there when I need them, my parents dearly missed… I think favouritism is a bit overrated and highly dangerous!

Favourite Animal

Well, when it comes to picking favourite animals that’s a hard one. I’ve had dogs most of my life, have rescued numerous semi-feral kitties since we’ve lived here in Italy and keep chickens. So I like animals.  However, an orangutan has to be top of the list… they look like so much fun!  We even sponsored one at a rescue centre for our grandson’s birthday one year.

Favourite Holiday


My favourite holiday: well any time or anywhere spent in Bobbus our campervan, who doubles as my writing shed, where ever we are…

Favourite Food

My favourite food? Do Maltesers count? Probably not. Anything meat based, I’m a carnivore through and through and one that loves veggies too, particularly sprouts! All in moderation, a balanced approach, is my stance….

Favourite Drink


My favourite drink… goes without saying, vino rosso. And I have been known since our trip to Ireland to fancy a half of cool, smooth Guinness-  never drunk ‘hops’ before this moment but it’s never too late!

Favourite Movie

My favourite movie: At this moment definitely The Greatest Showman – love the music as well. ‘This is Me’ is my mantra for this year…

My Favourite Book


My favourite book? Now, this is a hard one…I love to read and it’s soooo hard to pick one. So I’m going to pick two… maybe even three?

I’m Inspired By…

I’m inspired by… mmm this is a difficult one. Depends on the day, the time, the weather, on my mood by a multitude of stuff. I can’t pick just one thing. It might be a bumble bee woken from it’s hibernation by the warm winter sun, and rather than buzzing around it’s kind of snoozling around… a new word perhaps. My inspiration may be tickled by a smell or a sound, long forgotten, which pulls at my memories until it clicks into place. Or, it could just be a vision, something that flashes through the cobwebs of my conscious state which makes me sit up and take notice.

Our worlds are full of inspiration, we just need to keep looking…

I’m Grateful For

Bohoberrychallenge Day 19: I’m Grateful For…

My health and the health of my family. Despite living with Type 2 Diabetes (not me, Simon) I’m fairly lucky with the health runes that have been cast my way. I like a drink, I eat meat and carbohydrates, I walk our dogs daily and I do most things in moderation. Balance is always the key, in my opinion.

I Want Less Of


Bohoberrychallenge Day 18: I Want Less Of…

Well that depends on what happened on Tuesday. Less Brexit talk has got to be a good thing… can’t believe that ‘we’ would do something soooo stupid. An yes, I’m a Remainer, and proud of it.
