My readers are the absolute best! Here is an offering from Sue, I’ll let her tell you about herself, and her blogs. Say hi from me, if you go and have a squiz at what she writes. Maybe some of you already contribute to the Weekly Prompts blog.
I’m English and live on a small farm on the outskirts of the village of Bramhope in Yorkshire England, we are classed as Leeds although a good ten miles from the city centre. About Leeds.
These days I rent out the land to a local farmer, it works well as I get the benefit of country farm living without the responsibility.
I’m a retired computer teacher, a widow, and I sort of live on my own. After my husband died, my eldest moved here with her husband and children. We extended the house and divided it into two homes under one roof. We each have our own kitchens and live separately, and until he recently moved out, my son lived with me.
I have two blogs, the first being my personal one Nan’s Farm, and the second is Weekly Prompts a purely Prompts/Challenge site that I share with my partner in Canada GC.
During the school six-week summer recess, my son (a teacher) has spent much of his time here with me (unless he was socialising) which is why my list is substantial.
Our village has a bakery, wine shop, newsagents/post office, fish shop and a pub but there are no longer any grocery shops within walking distance so I drive everywhere. I tend to use one or other of two supermarkets, Morrison’s and Sainsbury’s, both are approximately three miles away in opposite directions. If I’m passing I will use Aldi for a few bits. Occasionally, in the winter I have my groceries delivered.
Apologies for such a long About Me!
Hope these will suffice.
Thank you, Yvonne,
I’ve attached two lists. One is from my phone notes. My youngest, my son was hosting a typically English type afternoon tea, a housewarming at his new house for his four sisters, hubbies and kids. Having baked his cakes he asked me (at the last minute) if I’d make a few dainty sandwiches and bring them with me.
Added after the initial post went live: And look what I found on the Weekly Prompts blog. Sue kindly gave me permission to post a photo of her son’s afternoon tea. Sue’s sandwiches hadn’t yet been put out. Now I’m even more envious, it all looks very tempting.
The second is a supermarket mixed shopping list. This list was written for Morrison’s.
Well, I wish I had such neat, organised lists! And, I wish I was as careful about my nutrition as Sue seems to be. Wouldn’t it have been fun to be at the afternoon tea with Sue’s family? I take it that the finger rolls are not this sort: “The finger roll is a specialized type of basketball layup shot where the ball is rolled off the tips of the player’s fingers.” 🙂
Sue, why do you call your personal blog Nan’s Farm?
Thank you so much for this wonderful pair of lists Sue, and the information about yourself. Let’s see what you folks folks have to say about it all.
