Saint Billinge

What puts a spark in your life?

96 posts in this topic

My first grandchild Jessica aged seven months has certainly captured my heart through her warm smile afforded to everyone. I now enjoy a weekly walk pram pushing around the Billinge countryside.  Bliss! I have also renewed my membership of the National Trust, of which I get a great sense of satisfaction visiting the various properties and gardens. There is also an addition watching rugby league. Our Stu's partner's daughter is now enjoying the sport. Gardening is back on the agenda, so here's hoping for some fine weather, although my own garden has suffered of late from the conditions.

 

What makes life that bit more special for you?

Having a really good kip Friday night and not having to lie in on a weekend, I might not do owt, but knowing I've a whole weekend to myself is great.

 

And having a random day off work.

 

Also, you're never too old to act silly in order to amuse yourself.

A walk in a forest...

 

If I've got my camera so much the better.

 

Enjoyed some great walks in Delamere Forest in Cheshire. Also, I once visited the New Forest as well as Grizedale Forest in the Lake District

My first few probably seem a bit materialistic but hey ho.

Driving - I passed my test fairly late (31, I'm 34 now) but I am lucky enough to own my 2 dream cars a 1974 citroen DS and my everyday car is a Porsche Cayman S so whichever car I use its always fun.

My house - my wife and I moved back from Australia and the exchange rate was well in favour which means we were able to buy a lovely Victorian house which had been rennovated fully to a high standard and I love spending time in it.

I've recently become self employed and that is invigorating, hard work and very rewarding.

My relationship with my wife.

My two Ragdoll cats

Creating music with my friends

A really nice glass of wine/brandy or whiskey

Visiting a really nice restaurant with my wife

Anytime I spend in the Yorkshire countryside it just feels where I belong

All In all I am in a very fortunate position in life and I never take anything for granted.

Not in any particular order.

 

Getting paid for invoices sent; my kids; most of my grandkids; swooping along the A16 on my Pan European; getting on a ferry; seeing the thermometer above 12 Celsius; Sally Bretton and Linda Barker;  a meal at the Taste of India, Ash Vale with my mates down south

Pan European's do not under any circumstances "swoop" they lumber  :P

 

but that is a top curry house, or used to be when I lived in farnborough.
