on all fours

Tagged by Mum of Four to give you four!


  1. School – whichever school I am working at each term.
  2. My hometown to visit my Mum, Sister and BIL, or to catch up with school friends. Not as often as I used to, which is sad.
  3. My hairdresser and beautician who are actually several suburbs away, a hang over from the days of the Basement of Discontent, but they accommodate my ways and won’t talk when I need quiet .
  4. The local garden nursery to buy seedlings. It combines a restaurant, gift shop and plant nursery and I love to browse.





  1. Bruce Springsteen
  2. Liam Neeson
  3. Steve Carrell
  4. My first crush was David MacCallum back in the Man from U.N.C.L.E days.


  1.  clean, sun dried clothes and bed linen
  2. lavender
  3. rose
  4. rain settled dust



  1.  Big Bang Theory (I can’t help myself)
  2. Midsommer Murders
  3. Downton Abbey
  4. Colbert Report


  1. You’ve Got Mail (bookshops, people!)
  2. The Help
  3. Finding Forrester
  4. Any, and I mean any, movie based on Jane Austen’s novels.


  1. You can get some great gifts on milestone birthdays – maybe it is the sympathy vote, who knows, or cares. Show other people how to do it with style. Plan a series of events, not just one party with a bang. Lots of smaller intimate events nourish the soul.
  2. Two wrongs don’t make a right.
  3. Continue learning – something, anything. Get a degree, taking up whittling, or whistling or whatever takes your fancy but keep your interests alive.
  4. Don’t live through your children. Live beside your children.

  1. Ooooh I like your fours.
    i even know who the man from U.N.C.L.E is without google!!

    If you like Midsomers do you also appreciate ‘Lewis.’? Also good. Have the first series of Downton Abbey upstairs – must get to it.
    Now is ‘rain settled dust’ only in Australia? I have no idea what that is!


    • Yes, we are into Morse. Any British crime show. They concentrate more on the story and less on the personal life of the “stars” than American crime shows.
      Rain settled dust – well, we do have a lot of dry earth. It is that lovely smell, just as the rain starts to fall on the dry earth. It doesn’t happen with every shower, but when it does, I find it strangely comforting.
