Wednesday Hodgepodge - 30/9/20

Wednesday's Hodgepodge is hosted by Joyce over at "From this side of the Pond".  Pop over there to see who is playing and how to join in.  If you do join in, remember to visit your neighbour on the Linky List.  Have fun.  

1. When is the last time you experienced nostalgia? 

Well it's been a few weeks since I've taken part here as we've been busy preparing to move house.  Packing up certainly brought on nostalgia - I still had some things of my Mum's, including lots of old photos.  We've been in our new house just over a week now and it's beginning to feel like home.

 2. September 29th is National Coffee Day. Do we need this? Ha! So are you a coffee drinker? If so how many cups per day, and tell us how you like it. Is there a recipe you enjoy that calls for coffee as one of the ingredients? 

As a non-coffee drinker (yes shock horror it's true!) we definitely do not need it although I'd absolutely vote for a National Tea Day.  But give me coffee flavoured cakes, sweets etc any time.

3. Do you find praise or criticism to be more motivating? Explain.
Definitely praise.  When we feel good about ourselves it's much easier to be positive and motivated.  I do feel that negative things can be pointed out though, just not in a totally negative way - criticism should be constructive - suggestions should be forthcoming on how changes could be made.

 4.  What's a television series you keep coming back to and re-watching? 
Ha, at the moment I don't have much time for watching television, let alone watching something I've already seen!

5. As the month of September draws to a close give us three words to describe your mood. 
Over the moon!   See below

6. Insert your own random thought here. 
In my post yesterday (here) I commented on finally completing the move to our new house and the birth of Grandson #4 who arrived just over 4 weeks early.  Well it seems the babies in this family are impatient to say hello because today we welcomed Grandson #5, Miles Walter, to the family at 13.49 pm weighing in at 7lb 15 oz just over 3 weeks early.  Mum and baby doing well and hoping to be home today but at this late stage of the day it could end up being tomorrow.

 We are so blessed.


  1. Congratulations, AGAIN!! Such great news, and he is just beautiful! You must be over the moon excited with all that's going on.

  2. Oh my goodness, of course you are over the moon!! Two here and one more to come!! I am happy that you already feel at home in your new house! Looking forward to pictures of it AND those babies!

  3. Wow yours definitely can't wait to arrive! How fun though! Congratulations on all those babies!! You've got almost enough boys now to field a sports team : ) Happy new home!

  4. New house, new grand babies of course you must be over the moon ! I have read all your posts in the evening in my bed, but was too tired to comment ! It's not so easy when you have to do the move alone and I always had to find somebody to carry or to help me to assemble things. Finally I bought everything I needed only in shops which delivered home or on Internet ! That's nice to shop there sitting on the sofa and surfing to the shops ! On top it's cheaper ! I haven't been in a cloth shop since March, I really don't need clothes and going shopping with masks and all these rules is not fun at all. I also sold my car, because we don't need two anymore as we live in the city center we can do everything by feet !
