Back in October I was tagged by justme
but I wanted to wait until I was really in the mood (in other words when I felt a bit too rubbish to think up something original - like me like now). However, I have put a bit of thought into it - hence the brain on the right here.
I know memes aren't everyone's cup of tea but, just as I like finding out all about the bloggers who increasingly make up part of my day, I thought you might like to know a little bit more about me. Is this vanity? I'm not sure really. So what if it is.
My Ex - was from the world of casinos and betting.* He was a charming gambler who cost me a lot of money. I don't have the gambing gene at all - I'm really glad about this as I have seen first-hand what it can do.
Maybe I should - finally lose the weight I put on when I gave up smoking eight years ago. It's something I've talked a lot about but being larger doesn't worry me as much as it maybe should.
I love - living in our house in the French countryside. We back on to a wood -in fact our garden is a bit of sectioned-off wood which we have tried to tame. We can see rabbits playing in the field opposite the house and there are brown cows in the furthest field. I think this is what you call an idyll.
People would say - I was vain and talkative and a bit of a show-off. They are probably all true.
But really - I'll try not to interrupt you if you want to say something now.
I don't understand - people who can torture other people or animals for pleasure. I feel very violent towards such people and know that if I could take the law into my own hands and dole out retribution then I would.
When I wake up in the morning - I'm quite bright and affable. I'm what you call a 'lark'.
I lost - a beautiful ring that my father gave my mother many years ago. I'm sure it is somewhere in the house and every now and then I try to find it - without success.
My past is - full of escapades, adventures and secrets.
Parties are - something I used to love and yearn to be seen at. They are not part of my current life at all.
I wish - I had more patience.
Dogs - are the best creatures in the whole world and I'm glad I have two dogs and no children.
Cats - are okay, I suppose.
Tomorrow - I really will chop down the shrubs ready for the hard winter - I've talked about it for the last two months.
I have a low tolerance for - people who deny themselves a bit of fun in life. I'm at a stage now where I feel rested and at peace and with someone that I love dearly but, if I didn't have a past crammed with things I maybe shouldn't have done, I might feel that I had missed out. How awful to be old one day and feel that you have missed out. Go on - do something you've always wanted to do. Don't have regrets.
If I had a million pounds - my life would not really change. I already have everything I want.
I am totally terrified - of being buried alive. Do you know that in Victorian times you could be buried with a bell inside your coffin so that - if the unthinkable happened and you were still alive underground - you could alert people to your dilemma. It makes me shudder to even type it and cremation is going to be my choice of disposal
Anyway, that's it, over and done with. The rules of this meme are that there are no rules - if you want to take it then please be my guest.
*anyone re-reading this will see that I have changed his description slightly.After thinking about it I decided that from my previous entry he might be a bit identifiable if you were from that world. Although, in reality, anyone with a love of nightclubs, baccarat and gambling is hardly going to spend their time reading my blog.
