'In a word' and Saturday Snapshots

It’s a ‘twofer’ day around here today (two entries for the price of one) – an ‘In a word’ meme from Joanna and Saturday Snapshots from Amanda.

First off…

I discovered from taking part in the last meme, passed to me by Joanna at The Fifty Factor, that I really like talking about myself!  Now there’s a surprise!  Joanna’s come up trumps again, this time with an award/ meme passed on from Holly Dietor of Your Mother Knows But Won’t Tell You.  (‘HDoYMKBWTY’ makes me think that I should really come up with a very much better name for this blog that started as ‘an experiment’ about a year ago now).

This meme requires one word answers to the following list of questions.  So without further ado…

1. Where is your cell phone? Handbag

It was quite telling to think of some of those, so thanks for that Joanna.  Let me know if you’d like the flame passed to you.  I’d love to see your one word answers.

Now for Saturday Snapshots.  It’s the fourth photo from my fourth folder, with an explanation to follow:

Smart

It’s my car – a little Smart cabriolet.  I lost my confidence with driving post stroke so for me the smaller the car, the better.  I always wanted a soft top so when it came time to change my car and this little Smart cabriolet was on the forecourt, available to drive away (very unusual here), it just seemed made for me.  I love the design of this car – it reminds me of a baby’s bootee!

The location probably looks very arty.  It was photographed outside an old holiday camp on the island’s stunningly beautiful north coast.  The camp shut down many years ago and is now crumbling and vandalised while developers, conservationists and our parliament continually argue about what should be done with it.  (We don’t believe in making hasty decisions here).

…………………………………………..

And finally (I love the ability, in my blog, to start not only a sentence with the word ‘and’ but also a whole paragraph)

And finally…please don’t forget!!!

  1. Enjoyed your list and photos. It is humanly impossible for me to answer such questions with only one word. I tried. I can’t. There is too much to express!!!

  2. Clever one word answers. Sorry, but what is mash?

    We never have developed a taste for scones (I’ll have to verify my Scottish heritage on the family tree again).

  4. Okay Okay!!!! Take a look at today’s post. Have a wonderful Saturday.

  5. Hehe…little car. 😉

    I’m sorry your father isn’t here with us.

    It is indeed an extremely little car. Small, but perfectly formed. 🙂

  7. I love that you have a Smart Car!!! Thanks for sharing and thanks a million for playing along!
