1. Seeing houses that I used to live in, particularly the one I lived in as a child. Glad I am not there now though as it is on clay so probably flooded back garden.

2. Didn't really have a favourite game as they tended to change over time and with the seasons. Jacks was one I quite liked, but was never much good at fivestones. Used to enjoy Tonight with Cliff Mitchelmore but now can't stand the One Show which is a replacement in a long distance way.

3. A misted up window with summer jasmine and wisteria stalks behind it.

4. Husband, son and DIL

5. Is it? I haven't seen it yet. Depends on how good this years one is. I enjoy it, but don't drink Cola, and haven't for years, so it doesn't seem to work with me. Laughing I suppose everyone has to advertise Christmas stuff, but most of it is rubbish, and does lose the real meaning of the event somehow.

Thanks for the Friday Fives VPB. Have a good weekend all and may the sun shine on you.

1. What makes you nostalgic about earlier in your life and why? Family picnics at National Park - beautiful scenery, heaps of good home-made food.

2. What was your favourite game or tv programme as a child? We had pine trees with earwigs living in the roots My sister and I would take bits of broken coloured glass and pottery we found and make houses for the earwigs to live in. We did the same to the crabs on the riverbank too.

3. If you look up from your pc and look straight ahead, what can you see? The new fridge

4. If you had to chose three good things, what would they be? (not limited to food or eating!!!!) A good spade that would respond well to sharpening, an oriental rug for the floor and a good pair of boots for gardening in  ....

5. When 'that' Coca Cola advert is on TV in Nov it's.....Nothing to me - I don't watch telly at the moment ...

 

Thanks VPB - good on you for remembering!..........

If you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel - run down there and light the blooming thing yourself!

Oooh...Good ones this week!

1. Music - The laughing policeman from Family favourites, Marmalade from youth club days, Kings of Leon from a particularly good wedding a couple of years back........

 

2. Robinson Crusoe with that fab music and The Singing Ringing tree because it was so surreal.

 

3. The woodburner, not lit yet it's only 9.30am.

 

4. Life, love and happiness.

 

5. .....too bloody early.

1 - When I visit some places I went when young, and view them with older eyes. Some of the magic has sadly gone.

2 - Blue Peter and Crackerjack.

3 - Wallpaper!

4 - My veg plot (even when almost drowning in water), my huge firewood stash (freedom from price rises), and my apple trees, even though it's been a poor year for cidermaking this year.

5 - Time to teach the World to sing......Smile

Thanks for ff's, have a nice weekend.

All humans should be free range and never kept in offices!

5. still November Smile

 

I like to do my bit for global warming, and so I make sure I use my 400 bhp V8 monster EVERY day.....

  • .@Eco_Gite It spreads like mad so not in the veg patch, better in a big pot, but it does take nearly a year to produce good sized roots.
  • . @Lou_la_may Default topping is a sprinkling of soft brown sugar but a trickle of runny honey is also great. #askHugh

  • .@pickleshlee A good way to deliver vitamins and fibre but not to be drunk by the gallon as they are often quite high in sugar #AskHugh
