Saturdays and been tagged.

Wow, its the first saturday I have been at home for ages and ages, its completely Lush. I am on an extreme economy drive, seeing as my bills have gone through the roof, I´m saying no more or I´ll get a bit mad. But anyway, instead of being extravagent I decided not to go shopping for a week or two, which is proving to be really good fun, I have been eating quite alot of beans and tomatoes, and Paella´s. I made waffles for breakfast too, much more fun that eating toast, and seeing as I have lots of flour and eggs, its fabulous!!! I am going to cheat though, Mum did send me a text saying ´mummy will take you shopping to sainsburys later´ which I will not refuse, lol!! 

Its amazing having weekends off though, I have done so much work this morning because I decided to do all the annoying things, I´m gonna take the afternoon though, weird saying that on a saturday isn´t it!! Go see mum, and then if I get all the things finished today I might, just might do some sewing or something. The first day ever doing something crafty for me for years, I have so many things I would like to do I can´t decide, sewing, or decoupageing a cabinet or making some weird nobs for my kitchen, ahhhhhhhh!! Too much potential. Anyway moving on from my blather. I was tagged by Cairi for a meme

The rules:
“The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.”

1. What was I doing ten years ago?

I was just finishing my first year of University, the best year of my life, and I had just started going out with Anth, my ex husband, and had just met Philip who was the first buddhist I had ever met, and we used to go and chant on Sunday evenings, I thought he was completely mad, I had never ever met any body like him before in my life, his honesty blew me away, but I looked forward to those trips so so much, it was amazing, a different world from anything I had ever experienced.

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):

1. Go and see mom and pops and be spoiled.
2. Do some knitting
3. Drink a Gin and tonic
4. Cook some nice food and light my chimnea in the Garden tonight and my outside lanterns I got from ikea, lol
5.Make some banana cake.

3. Snacks I enjoy:

Cold spanish tortilla, spanish toast, avacados, cold sausage, fruit salad, sometimes homemade cake in the afternoon.

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

Give lots of money to my family, so they didnt have to work and could live their dreams.´

Fund a project that would encourage people to look at the causes of poverty, rather than throwing money at the effects of wars and ecological disasters and stick sticking plasters on things. Encourage people to understand that if we changed the causes we make, then we could create a whole different world which was prepared for natural disasters, stopped famines by stopping war, and abusing the planet, by our throwaway, stick our heads in the sand culture.   

Invest in research for green technology, and start a business building houses that were completely green, and take the research findings spread it all over the world, and plough he profits back into it so we could continue to make it amazing.

Oh and build a lovely big house which was completely self sufficient, oh and buy my own mill so I could make the greenest, most gorgeous yarns ever.

5. Places I have lived:

I grew up in a little village between swindon and Oxford, then I came to Uni in cardiff, and have lived in the student areas for years, now I live in Splott, which is totally wonderful and often discoounted, but which is buzzing with lovely people, and is really developing wonderfully.

6. Jobs I´ve had

Waitress, Shop assistant, washerupper, nanny, psychology researcher, yarn dyer.

6. People I want to know more about:

Elly, Marie, Amanda , mary.
