350 times...


Welcome! This is my 350th post and I have decided to participate in the Wednesday Hodgepodge hosted by 'From This Side of the Pond' on this their 200th edition.

So the questions given and my answers....

1. What is something in your life right now that feels a little 'hodgepodge'?

This made me laugh, can I only pick one thing? Ha! Lets say...hmmm...eeny meeny miney mo...stitching! The project I just started was going so well until I realised I had misread the chart, and because the fabric is just enough, I am now torn with carrying on stitching and seeing what happens or stopping and losing my momentum...

2. What does 'peace on earth, goodwill to men' mean to you?

This is hard to put into words but basically to me it means treating others as you would be treated, to be kind, helpful and courteous and don't look for problems where there are none.

3. Which edible treat you are most looking forward to sampling this December?

Flumps! If I can find some - people keep trying to fob me off with imitations that just don't taste the same, and I was told that they no longer sell them where they used to :(

4. It's that most wonderful time of the year...do you agree, and if so why is it so wonderful?  If not, what would you say is the most wonderful time of the year?

I love christmas, I like the warmth (even if it is provided by thick jumpers and indoor heating), I like the twinkling lights, the decorations, the anticipation, the everything and any reason to celebrate life (as its so short) is good enough for me. I know some people hate the commercialism but I always think that they shouldnt complain so much as no-one is forcing them to participate. I for one think its the gesture and not the gift itself, so if you can't afford one, a homemade gift is just as good or even kind words. But I wear rose tinted glasses a lot of the time!

5. What was the last word you looked up in a dictionary (actual or online) and why?

Whom -I was making sure that I used it correctly.

6. Besides a Christmas tree, what is your favorite thing to decorate this time of year?

The fireplace I suppose, we really only decorate the tree and the fireplace.

7. Share one thing you've learned (about yourself, people, or anything at all) in the Wednesday Hodgepodge, or through blogging in general.

There are a lot of very nice people out there and very talented, people don't comment on music posts and I lack focus!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I really should brush my hair.


  1. I'm glad you played along today. What is a Flump? I've learned the same thing about music posts : ) Enjoy your day!

  2. I'm stopping by from The Hodgepodge. So glad you decided to join in!
    I, too, am wondering what a flump is?
    As for your stitching project, it drives me crazy when I get into a project and discover I've messed up!!!

  3. Visiting today from the Hodgepodge. I love homemade gifts. Rose colored glasses aren't the worst thing ;)

  4. Welcome to the hodge podge today. I would also like to invite you to my blog on Mondays. I call it Memory Monday.

  5. So happy to have you join us today...hope you'll be back, again! I'd love to know what a flump is..never heard of it.

  6. I started to do the Hodge this week and realized how negative all my answers were and just chucked the whole thing. I am definitely NOT a Christmas person and will be so glad when this whole mess is over with!


I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. Spill the beans...
