Your questions answered #1

Hi everyone! Sorry I have been a bit absent from the blog recently. I've been ill for about two weeks now with a lingering cold which is making me feel lethargic and miserable. I'm hoping I will be able to get rid of my cough by Christmas so I can enjoy the holidays...anyone got any {preferably natural} ways of shifting a cold quick?

Anyway, thanks for those who left me questions to answer last week {some were weirder than others!}. I'm going to answer then over two posts, so let's get going!

1. Where would you like to live?
I'd love to live in the countryside {big surprise!} in a little village somewhere wild and beautiful, but not too far from family and friends. Even though I often look at houses in the middle of nowhere with longing I reckon in reality I would prefer a community around us rather than being totally isolated. I miss the sea so maybe somewhere close to the coast too!

2. What's your favourite city?
To be honest I haven't visited lots of cities but I love old cities with lots of character. My favourite cities are probably Oxford, Bath or Edinburgh; they don't feel too huge and sprawling and you can see the history of the place everywhere you look. If I visit a city it's going to be for the history rather then the shopping!

3. What's your favourite country?
Well, to be honest I'm not very well travelled. Outside of the UK I've only ever visited Paris and that was a long time ago. I would love to travel a bit more, but both Josh and I are homebirds at heart. I love the UK and think it's really beautiful; especially the mountains and coasts in Wales and Scotland. I'd love to visit Ireland too.

4. Would you like to live abroad?
I can't say that this is on my list of things to do before I die, but if God told us to move abroad then I would. I think home is where you make it, although I would really miss my family. In short, the answer is probably no!

5. Do you and Josh have any Christmas traditions?
We have lots of family traditions, but I'm not sure we really have any special personal traditions just for us two that I can think of. I love our family traditions like singing round the piano on Christmas eve and each getting a book as a present from 'Father Christmas' on the evening of Christmas Day from the tree. I really love that I get to be part of Josh's families Christmas traditions now we're married...like opening stockings on Christmas morning and having a 'pick-a-dipper' meal on boxing day. I'm excited :)

To be continued tomorrow...

  1. What is a pick-a-dipper meal? Your dream home sounds a lot like mine - in a small town, close to the sea...
