Hello all! It has been another scorcher of a week in the UK and across Europe the temperatures are set to reach record breaking highs. The lovely girl arrived home from her 2 weeks in Greece in the early hours of Sunday morning and whilst we got little sense out of her yesterday, she seems to have had a great time. Her hair is even blonder, she is sporting a very healthy glow and has been swimming daily – including a midnight dip in the sea on Friday. Oh to be sixteen (nearly) again!
I joined Em Linthorpe’s Facebook group Pickled Blog Project recently and meant to join in with the fun tag post questions, but haven’t got round to it ……until now! So I thought that I would change things about and share my pickled answers here on Monday Magic.
How to play
- Answer the questions.
- Link back to Em’s post : Pickled Blogs Project
- Use the hashtag #PickledBlogs on any social media shares so everyone can find your post, and in the title of the blog post too if you like.
- Feel free to tag some of your blogging friends at the end.
Wm will add the links of everyone who plays along, so please shout up when you have completed it!
1. What is your favourite pickled item to eat?
2. Tell us about a time you were in a “bit of a pickle” (a tough situation)
3. Pickle Rick, a character from Rick and Morty, is a personal hero of Em’s. Who are your heroes?
4. If you had to live in a jar, what three items would you take with you?
What is your favourite pickled item to eat? It HAS to be pickled onions – but I can’t eat onions of any sort now (gut problems has meant I have had to follow a restricted diet) – I used to love the huge dish that our local fish and chippy would give us when we ate in!
Tell us when you were in a bit of a pickle – going back just a few years(!) to our wedding and my lace dress that needed something underneath, to maintain my dignity. Mum decided that she would make me an underdress but she didn’t want to put a zip or fastenings on that would show, so having a light bulb moment she stitched me into it. This was great until we were at the hotel reception and yours truly needed to nip out to the little girls’ room – only to find mum had stitched my dress to my tights and knickers, so limited champagne for me for the rest of the day!
Who are your heroes? Hmmm…..Dame Cicely Saunders (founder of the hospice movement) and I’m rather fond of Marvel’s Daredevil!
If you had to live in a jar, what 3 items would you take with you? Now Amelia over at You Can Always Start Now assures me this jar is already furnished……so I am assuming I have unlimited wifi to set up Netflix & Amazon as my number one, second my Kindle crammed full of classics and contemporary favourites, and finally – well frankly I am struggling to choose between chocolate or wine. I am sure that says something about me!!
I’m not going to tag anyone in particular – so please feel free to join the fun! I hope you have enjoyed my answers and now will sit back and enjoy this week’s selection of fab blog posts. They are really varied covering yoga, friendship and being an adult, finishing with a very talented dog called Sasha who writes beautifully and looks stunning too.
Please comment, like and share!
Have a great week,
