Welcome to my new follower Maggie.


Things I love...........

Obviously top of the list my lovely hubby & lovely son.




The smell of Basil.



Baking






Some hate it but I love it, been eating it since I was a child.




Chocolate any sort but, especially Thorntons and Cadbury and I love all the chocoate creams in a box of chocolate, strawberry, orange, rose, coffee I love them all .




A nice cup of Earl Grey in the afternoon




Cherubs & Angels



 My camera (todays pics were taken with my phone) thats why they are not so good.







Purple




Birds
 These were taken at the old house





My favourite - and yes I caught a glimpse of the Robin just flying of the table so he did come back.


Fudge - yum




A cream tea

Flowers

Wonderful holidays, 
We live simply and are frugal which allows us holidays, I don't see the point of scrimping and saving if there isn't something to look forward to.

Wales
 Croatia


 Our last holiday Last Christmas - France 

Versailles











I love visiting old historical buildings or National Trust properties, I love to see Architecture, Paintings, Statues this is also why I like to visit a Church or Abbey or Cathedral.







I like Carbooting and finding Collectables and researching what they are.


Beautiful Country Walks








The list could go on and on, I just thought I would share a few things with you.

  3. We have an awful lot of likes in common! I would not take milk in my tea, but we would have a fight on our hands over the creams in the box of chocolates. Few boxes of chocolates are better than a box of Cadbury's Dairy Milk.

    1. Hi Deborah, I love Dairy Milk, whenever we go away abroad I always make sure we visit the chocolate factories.

  4. Love chocolate but hate chocolates, except coffee creams and stem ginger, both in dark chocolate. No milk in my tea but nice and strong, Assam in the morning and leaves not bags. Love a cream tea, at any time of day Wales, yes and Greece, for the food as well as the scenery.

  5. You've got your main things down, but you've omitted books! I couldn't live without my books! And what about music? Hard to photograph music, I admit ... Oh, and I love eating stem ginger ... well, any kind of ginger! I asked if they had any jars of stem ginger yesterday while in Waitrose and the assistant said, "Oh, do you mean 'ginger balls'?" Well, I've never heard them referred to thus but I can see the point of her description. I said yes, but they were out of stock. I can't imagine there's been a run on 'ginger balls', can you?

    1. Yes this is just some things I shall have to do a part two, I found some chocolate coated ginger balls in a sweet shop they were so nice.

    2. Chocolate coated ginger balls sounds idyllic! We found some lovely chocolate coated pineapple pieces in Lidl's this week, certainly worth buying, but if you are on a limited budget perhaps I should not have mentioned this! A small bag is £2.49 but they are tasty!

    3. Hello Margaret, I try to be thrifty and frugal which allows us to purchase the odd treat, I love Lidl I will take a look next time.

    4. I also try to be fairly thrift although regularly having coffee and croissants out, and lunch out today (we only have starters as we have small appetites as starters today are as large as main courses when we were young) but then I see flowers and can't resist buying them ... a room without flowers looks dead to me. We all have our 'one weakness' as Dorcas Lane would've said in Lark Rise to Candleford! Flowers are mine (along with several others, with books topping the list!)

    5. We don't go without to be honest,just buy carefully and wisely, for example I wouldn't pay £8.00 for a roast chicken when I could get one for half the price, spending wisely means treats and days out.

    6. We are all do different - I'd rather pay £8 for an organic, free range chicken, one that I knew had had a good life and was as healthy as a chicken could be and cut back on other things (cheaper dishwasher powder.) We are what we eat, and we buy the very best quality food we can afford - we used to buy our fruit and veg in a discount store, thinking we were 'saving money'. Well, to a point we were, but the stuff went off very quickly and a lot therefore had to be thrown away. We now spend a bit more on fresh food and, admittedly, our food bills have gone up, hence buying cleaning products in a discount store. But you don't eat those things, it doesn't matter than the cream cleaner is only 30p. But I still splash out on flowers!

  6. I think I would like to try Croatia. It looks beautiful. You like many of the things I do. Although I'm not partial to Earl Grey give me builders tea anytime. Common as much me! ;0)
