8 Things I'm Looking Forward To:

Retiring from work some day and finding something better to do with my time...

Returning to my Stained/Leaded Glass Crafts Class in the autumn

The Future, starting with my summer holidays (still not booked - Get a grip, Fhina!!!)

My son starting his last year at school in September

My son leaving school in summer 2010, and hopefully embarking on his wishes in life...

Christmas (always - I love Christmas...)

Seeing Ray Lamontagne in October

Sleeping, always sleeping...

8 Things I Did Today (I completed this over a week ago, on a Sunday by the way...):

Visited Lady Waterford Hall at Ford in Northumberland

Got a pin-like stone in my peep-toed shoe. (Not suitable for hiking, as it turns out!)

Watched a Heron fishing - How cool is that?!

Peeked through the window of a craftsmen's workshop, and wished I could afford hand-made wooden furniture from here

Had a vegetarian Sunday lunch complete with 2 Yorkshire Puddings...

Found 6 Lucite Place Napkins just perfect for Saz, I hope - Which I am going to post soon, I promise!

Shouted like a Harpy at Grizz ;' (

Pinched this Meme over at Carma's

8 Things I Wish I Could Do



Be more confident about my own abilities...

Visit NYC (same as Carma...)

Be my own boss (ditto!)

Live in a city (Some days it's true - I wish I lived in Paris...)

Get my nose or belly button pierced (Nose in my case : ) Belly button in Carma's and she's done that now, the brave thing! )

Realize it is not my responsibility to keep everybody happy (Truly!)

8 Shows I Watch:

Lie to Me (new, I've only seen two now, and I love Tim Roth's acting, but doesn't he walk as if he'd rode into town on a horse?!)

Dead Art (Dee Snyder visiting fascinating graveyards and cemetaries!)

Desperate Housewives

The Apprentice

The Naked Pilgrim (I'll watch anything with Brian Sewell in it usually... A national treasure - He should be listed, like our historic buildings, and probably stuffed, but let's wait 'til after he's died!)

Francesco da Mosto's series, whatever he is doing, really...

X-Factor, which must be due to start again soon (It's our American Idol - Only smaller and shite-r!)

You've Been Framed - Harry Hill is always a scream...

Tag 8 People

Since we are a little averse to tagging generally, I'm not going to tag anyone with this meme, but if eight of you do decide to participate, please let me know so I can visit your blog, pretty-please, with cherries for Amelie, on...

I love the film, Amelie - Give it a try, mes petits cineastes!

I think I give enough secrets away about me, without answering questions? You only need to read bewtween the lines, and there I am - warts and all! Always interesting to delve into your inner workings, by any means...

Michelle said...

Hey Lady Fhina interesting stuff.

I am surprised you watch Desperate Housewives.

I love you!

Sniffles and Smiles said...

This is a fabulous post! You deal with this meme brilliantly...creatively! I LOVED reading and viewing your "lists." And I'm so thrilled to "meet" you...thanks for stopping by my blog! I so love making new friends! You have a new fan! ~Janine XO

You want to pierce your nose? Well, De Gustibus Non Est Disputadum (as my grandfather said when he shaved his initials onto the cat) but I've always found that very UNbecoming. Oh, well. As you said, not your job to please everyone, least of all me :-)

Comedy Goddess said...

Hiking in peep toe shoes is very brave! I love Tim too! Thanks for sharing, I may take it up and let you know.

Derrick said...

Now Fhina, you can't have your nose pierced or that will definitely put me off! You're ringing to book an appointment right away, right??

You've Been Framed - now why didn't I think of that when I did mine? I love it! Oh and I'm digging the new look!

All tres interesant!

Wonderful photos, dear one! I've done this meme recently so won't do it again. And a vegetarian lunch - how delicious!

blognut said...

Love the picture from the cemetary. That sounds morbid, doesn't it? Oh well, it's a cool picture anyway.

What do you mean you want to be your own boss? I thought you were the boss of the world. :) If not, you certainly should be.

Have a lovely weekend, my dear!

Suburbia said...

I like your 8 things! Particularly the one about realising you don't have to make everyone happy. A lesson for us all I think!

lakeviewer said...

Love Amelie. I didn't like her role in the Da Vinci Code, too stiff.

Being your own boss is a good fantasy.

carma said...

I love that we share some of the same wishes. Here's hoping you someday get to visit NYC and, more importantly, get that piercing done ;-)
Thank you for the shout-outs :D
I am happy to hear that you will be going back to your stained glass work. I look forward to seeing some of your creations..You have a true creative bent and I know that you will be able to create some funky pieces- assuming funky is what you have in mind...

I always look forward to Christmas, and sleep.

Bee said...

Oh, I love Amelie, too.

I noticed in your 8 things to look forward to that you include something from every season but spring! We had some friends over for dinner tonight and we were lamenting the passing of May . . . beautiful, beautiful month.

So you'd like to get your nose pierced ... I've been toying with the idea of getting my belly button pierced for a few years now. Still haven't summoned up the courage! Instead, I think I'll just look forward to a fabulous summer (a lot less pain, I think!).
