Wednesday Hodgepodge - 12/7/17

Wednesday's Hodgepodge is brought to us courtesy of Joyce at
Pop over there to see other posts and if you want to join in add the link to your Hodgepodge blog post to the Linky List at the end of Joyce's post and don’t forget to visit at least your neighbours on the list.

1. When was the last time you chatted with a neighbour? About what? (sharing that last bit is optional)
Last week when we had a sudden, unexpected power cut. I popped outside to check it wasn’t just us that was affected and got chatting with one of the neighbours.
2. River, lake, ocean, or waterfall...which one are you most like and why?
Well I’ve compared myself to a lot of things but never any of those!
3. July 13 is National Delaware Day. Ever been to Delaware? Delaware is called 'the first state' because it was the first to declare independence from the British. What's your state's nickname and does that moniker make sense to you? If you were in charge, what nickname would you give your home state?
Never been to Delaware and don’t have a state.  London does have several nicknames, including the Big Smoke (due to its episodes of smog) and the Swinging City following the cultural revolution in the 1960s. 
4. What dish did you contribute to the last pot luck meal you attended? Do you have a go-to recipe for pot luck suppers?
I honestly can’t remember the last pot luck meal I attended.  It’s not so much of a thing over here.
5. What is your number one tip for a brand new parent?
Forget about housework etc and sleep whenever you can.  And if you have a little boy make sure you keep him covered when changing the nappy so you don’t get peed on! lol
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Grandbabies are just wonderful!


  1. I realize that I misunderstood the question with lakes and oceans, doesn't matter ! How cute he sleeps must have been hot ! I experienced the shower of male babies for the first time when I was 8 with the little brother of my friend, lol !

  2. You are so right - grandbabies are indeed wonderful!!

  3. Hi Wendy, thanks for stopping by my Hodgepodge, I so enjoy reading the comments! Your grandbaby is so sweet...I love being a grandmother!

  4. The sleeping tip is a great one for a new parent. Your grandbaby is adorable. Potlucks are kind of a big thing around here. Seems I'm always taking a covered dish somewhere.
