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 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…

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.

I Want More Of

BohoBerryChallenge Day 17: I want more of...

It sounds very demanding, that word ‘want’. I’m not really in need of wanting anything I can’t live without to be honest. If I’m pushed I’d say Maltesers, yes, those round chocolate covered honeycomb balls. Difficult to source here in Italy.

Hoping To Change

Bohoberry Challenge Day 14: Hoping To Change
Well, considering that our lives are in the hands of those who think they know best, I’m not sure right now. I don’t want to change. I want to stay European. I’m not a very political animal but this particular issue just has too many complications not to be concerned. Yes, I’m talking the dreaded ‘B’ word. Goodness knows what tomorrow will bring. Ask me on Wednesday!

Looking Forward To


Bohoberry Challenge Day 13: Looking Forward To…

I think one of the benefits of the future is that we don’t know what is round the corner, do we? For me, right now I’m just looking forward to tomorrow. Life can be very simple at its very best.
