My Meme is late..

Sorry Suzysoo, it has taken me ages to do this, and I'm not sure it will be any good anyway:

7 Things I plan to do before I die:
Go to Vancouver - I once read a book about it and have wanted to go ever since.
See my Children happy and settled.
Get something published.
Visit my old friend in Sydney - though I'm not keen on 24hr flights.
Live in a house with a verandah.
See the Egyptian Pyramids and the Valley of the Kings.
Win the Lottery (shallow I know, but I could make so many people happy).

7 things I do now:
Eat too much, worry too much, count the pennies, cook every day, walk by the sea, sit up late Blogging, talk for hours on the phone.

7 things I can't do:
Ignore a crying child.
Drink whisky (because my Father was an alcoholic).
Eat jellied eels (ugh).
Run like I used to.
Stay up all night dancing (as I used to).
Drink coffee after lunch (it keeps me awake all night).

7 things that attract me to the oppposite sex: Well, if I can remember,

Nice hands, intelligence and wit, a love of music, generosity, a nice smile, a good body (of course) and a sense of style.

7 things I say most often:

"Bugger", "Oops, sorry", "Lots of love, Darling", "What do I know", "How's my precious boy?", "I'd love to" and " Night, Night, Sleep Tight"

7 Celebrities I admire: this is hard because I'm not much into celebrities.
Bette Midler (wonderful voice and sense of humour),
Twiggy (she's a survivor),
Biba (the original fashion queen of my youth),
Steve McQueen (he was so gorgeous),
The Beatles (my all-time favourite band),
David Beckham (great footballer, and I love football)
Katharine Hepburn (style incorporated).

7 favourite foods:
Fish and Chips,
Rabbit cooked with prunes,
Roasted Parsnip soup with Garlic Bread,
Toffee Ice Cream,
Good Olives,
Almond Croissants,
Sauteed Potatoes.

7 Bloggers who need to do this Meme: this is hard too, because lots of you have done it already, but here goes.. Dem Bones, Dem Bones: Dusty Spider: Family Affairs (though she may have done it): Made in Heaven (sorry Donna): Retired and Crazy: The Dotterel: Tea and Cake..

Of course, anyone who wants to do this one is welcome to take it on - come on you lot, we all want to know more about you. And if you don't want to do it, that's fine too. This is a Democracy.

There is a load here I agree with and and do and a few that I don't do, Vive la difference!

auntiegwen said...

Ooh, can I come round for dinner ? Being a good vegetarian you can eat all the rabbit but the rest sounds yummy ! x

A Mother's Place is in the Wrong said...

Ah Donna, I so look forward to reading yours - couldn't resist asking you! Hugs, M xx

Hi Suzysoo - I'm glad you think it was worth the effort. Of course now I've done it I can think of loads more things to say!

Hi Mob - yes that's the great thing - we are all different. M xx

Hi Auntiegwen, I hadn't thought of it like that, but you're right, it sounds like a pretty good menu. Of course I'd love you to come for dinner - not sure where the almond croissants fit in, but perhaps you'd better stay over and have breakfast? M xx

Retiredandcrazy said...

I loved all your answers M. I will have a bash, but it is a daunting task isn't it. Mmm, I will have to get my thinking hat on.

Rabbit cooked with prunes. Good grief!

A Mother's Place is in the Wrong said...

Hi RAC, thanks for your sporting acceptance - yes it is dauntung. It took me ages! Good Luck M xx

Hi expatmum, sorry if that doesn't hit the spot for you! I have loved rabbit (to eat) since I was a girl. Wabbit Stoo! Yummy. M ;-)

Job done M. Love Ann xx

aims said...

I don't know why blogger is not updating your posts when they are posted! Grrrr! I've ended up missing and then catching up and feeling horrible - here's me thinking you're thinking I don't love you anymore - but I do. Blogger apparently doesn't love me perhaps.

Good meme. You made me smile.

A Mother's Place is in the Wrong said...

Well done Ann, I've read it and it's very good. You were so fast too - puts me to shame. M xx

Hi Aims, oh don't worry - I know how random Blogger is and I didn't think any such thing. It's nice to be told though, M :-)

family affairs said...

Thanks Margot for including me in your list - I haven't done this one before - will give it some thought Lxx

A Mother's Place is in the Wrong said...

Hi Lulu, thanks and will look forward to reading yours. M xx

Mean Mom said...

With you on so many of the things that you do now and can't do. Worry, count pennies, late night blogging, long phone calls, ignore crying children etc. I never could do handstands. Sigh.

A Mother's Place is in the Wrong said...

Thanks MM, I'm sure we have lots in common - and I remember when I could do handstands - aah, those were the days. M xx
