I've been tagged ...

I've been tagged by my new blogging friend Sarah at Modern Country Style.  It was really interesting reading a bit more about Sarah and I hope this will be a little insight about me! 

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I always wanted to be a mermaid!

What do you like most about where you live?
We live in a small village called Aberdour on the Fife coast in Scotland and I love that there are two beaches that we can go to even though the sun doesn't shine very often.   

If you could only rescue three things from your house what would they be?
Oh, now, let's see!  Excluding my family members as I am assuming they will be out already, I would rescue my family photo album as I wouldn't want to lose all those memories, my favourite Emma Bridgewater mug that my husband gave me when he proposed and probably my memory box for our little boy that contains all his "first" things.

What's your favourite book?
Gosh, I don't get much time for reading these days, not past my house magazines anyway! Maybe some baby cook books if I am lucky. I really enjoyed reading the Shopaholic series of books by Sophie Kinsella and there is a new one out just now which I am hoping to get for Christmas called Mini Shopaholic.

What's your favourite room in your house?
I like our sitting room as it has two big windows and is lovely and sunny.  It needs re-decorated and a bit of a move around but it has the basis to be a good room and I like that.

What's your favourite joke?
This is a "joke" that my friend's son made up...
What crossed the road?
A rubber ducky!
I like it because it isn't even a joke but he thought it was hilarious, even though his older brother said it was silly.  I can't wait for my son to start saying funny things like that!

What would you most like to change about your house?
At the moment, I would like to change nearly everything which is what we are slowly trying to do.  If I had to prioritise though, I would say that I would like to make the bathroom into a lovely relaxing retreat. Oh, or maybe make the kitchen sunnier?!

Do you believe in love at first sight?
Yes, and, no! I believe it can happen to some people but I believe that love can also grow on you as you get to know people.  I do absolutely believe in fate though.


  1. Yay! You did it!!

    Your answers are fab! A mermaid? I love that!

    Isn't it great, even before you've got to work on a room, when you can see it's got 'good bones'?

    It's lovely getting to know *you* too!


  2. Aww a mermaid how lovely. Do you collect the mermaid 'tears' on your beaches? Lovely answers to the questions, wouldn't know what 3 things to take from our house.....could it be 33 things!!

  3. I still dream of being a mermaid! I think if I did have to rescue stuff I would be grabbing armfuls of all sorts! Welcome Highland Monkeys.
