Pop over there to see other posts and join in - the Linky List is at the end of Joyce's post and don’t forget to visit at least your neighbours on the list.

1. Best place you've been lately?
We went out for lunch in Hampstead on Sunday with my daughter, her wife and our Grandson.  The restaurant was nice, nothing spectacular but it was Mother’s Day here in the UK so it was just lovely to share their first one.

2. What's something you should say yes to today? Or this week? Or even this year?

Well I think I should be saying No!  To sweets, crisps, cakes, excessive amounts of food – I’m sure you’re getting the picture.  And maybe yes to an exercise class?
3. Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in any way, shape, or form? If so tell us how. In Western cultures the colour green is typically associated with jealousy, nature, good luck, and growth. What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word 'green'?

Not really although there are lots of celebrations held in London.  We’re away this weekend so it will probably pass us by.  When I hear green I tend to think of open spaces and the outdoors.
4. What's a product or service you love so much you'd happily be their spokesperson? Tell us what makes you such a fan.
My bank.  What I like about them is when you phone you get connected really quickly to someone who is based in the UK, and easy to talk to.  Their customer service is excellent.  Plus when I moved our account to them they were happy to name me first on the account.  Traditionally joint accounts have usually had the male name first.
5. March 14th is Pi Day. How are your maths skills? What's the last thing you did that required maths of any kind? And most importantly do you like pie? What's your favourite kind? With ice cream, whipped cream, or please hold the cream?
Well my maths skill are generally ok, probably above average – it was my best subject at school.  I often do killer Sudoku puzzles and they require maths.  I definitely like pie.  As for the cream, well although I like dessert style pies I also like meat pies so I’ll have mine with gravy please.
6.  Insert your own random thought here.

Looking forward to a weekend away with all our kids and spouses and of course Nathan plus our son’s 2 greyhounds.  Not sure how relaxing it will be! lol


  1. I can't even remember the last time I ate a meat pie, but it sure sounds good! Once when we were in Ironbridge, a couple there from Stockport warned us not to eat pork pies. We didn't eat them but wondered what was so bad about them. Happy late Mother's Day. (Mothering Day?).

  2. Your weekend away may not be relaxing but it will be fun and full of love, I'm sure! I enjoyed reading your answers!!

  3. Have a fun weekend! How fun to have greyhounds. Be sure to share photos.
    xx oo

  4. Math had been a nightmare for me at school, I am more into litterature ! How nice again a family meeting ! That's what I miss the most, besides our son we have no family anymore, except in Italy but that's so far away and there is only a sister left.
