So the rules …. I have to answer 6 questions about myself. At the end of the post, I then tag 6 people and post their names, then go to their blogs and leave them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read my blog. Then, I must let the person who tagged me know when I’ve posted my answers.
What was I doing ten years ago - 1998
Ten years ago I owned my own Post Office so was working 6 long days a week and had no time (or energy) for anything else.
5 things on my to do list for today
Do lots of muddy washing form yesterdays race meeting.
Change the beds.
Sort out something for tea.
Pop down into my office and catch up on some paper work.
Try to do at least one hours sewing!
Things I would do if I was a billionaire.
I wouldn't want to be a billionaire just have enough money to pay off my families mortgages and give the kids a good start in life. I think if you can keep your health you are a billionaire.
Places I have lived.
Compared to all the other tagged posts I have read this is going to sound very boring, I have only ever lived in the West Midlands, near to Dudley. We have got a Villa in Rojales In Spain, but I don't want to live there, only holiday there.
6 people I want to know more about
Country Cottage Chic
A Brit In Spain
Off to try and do those five thing for today now.

Jack & John working on Jacks car ready for race.
Jack has done a few more meeting in his Stockrod and won a trophy, hubby also had a go at racing and won a trophy but after one race meeting he decided to put his car up for sale so he could buy a Westfield racing car and that is where Jack and him have gone off today and left me alone at home to do a few hours sewing. Its been heaven and I have managed to finish a few things off. I have made this matching set of a wheat warmer, neck pillow, lavender hearts, and a bookmark for my Mother-in-Laws Birthday this week. I also managed to make a couple of Birthday cards using the scraps of fabric that were left over. I was quite pleased with this, hope she likes it.
Here are the cards.
Have been busy this week baking, tried to make bread but again it was too heavy (any tips anyone), but had a bit more success with this chocolate cake.
Just going to finish the hem on a dress for myself before they get home. Hopefully will have a few photos of it by tomorrow so I will try and post again.
