If you had to move to a country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?
Without a doubt my first choice would be New Zealand. I felt very at home there during the few days we had at cruise ports in New Zealand. It is a country with beautiful scenery and a climate that I would feel comfortable with. In addition New Zealanders are lovely people. At least all the ones I’ve ever met have been. The only thing that would put me off is the earthquakes. It would be scary to live in a country that has so many, some of them have been devastating.
My other choices would be Scotland, a country I’ve always liked and Canada as long as I could live on the coast. All the Canadians I know are also very friendly people.
What colour would you like your bedroom to be?
I know it is sensible to paint your walls neutral colours and bring colours in via soft furnishings, pictures etc but I am sick to death of neutrals after painting my whole house in shades of white and cream. Yes it looks nice but it is boring. I have always wanted a bedroom with shades of red and green in it. Not the scarlet and emerald I probably would have picked in my younger days but colours like rose, burgundy and light greens. Perhaps I would pick a shade of pastel green for the walls as I would not want a dark colour and don’t really want pink. Cream would look nice with this colour scheme too but right now I can’t think about neutrals.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
This week we have finally had three warm sunny days in a row! I think we all appreciated that. I have also spent several hours over the past week or so soaking, washing and ironing vintage tablecloths and other linen that was donated to the Op Shop ready for our sale on Saturday. I have a new appreciation for my mother’s generation who did this every week and I am certainly glad that I don’t have to.
