Knowing me knowing you

I was gifted this meme by imbeingheldhostage about ten days ago. I do not think that I can put off doing it any more. So here goes:

(A) Four places that I go over and over
  1. Tesco
    I go to three different stores depending on how the mood takes me. Does that count as three? I suppose not.
  2. My greenhouse at the end of our garden
    I go twice a day in the summer and once a week in the winter
  3. Charity shops
    To get rid of our junk but I usually come home with someone else's junk
  4. The gym
    I do not actually go but would if I had not had housemaid's knee on and off since June
(B) Four people who e-mail me regularly
  1. Friends reunited
  2. Able labels
  3. Amazon
  4. The National Lottery
(C) Four of my favourite places to eat
  1. Pizza Piazza, Dorking
    We regularly ate here when we lived in Surrey
  2. The Italian Taste, Surbiton
    We used to eat here when we visited my mother in law
  3. The Bunbury Arms, Stoak, Cheshire
  4. The Goshawk, Mouldsworth, Cheshire
    It would have been easier to have listed four places that are not worth returning to.
(D)Four places you would rather be
  1. On a beach on a desert island
  2. In our garden
  3. Anywhere by the sea
  4. Not at work
(E) Four TV shows you could watch over and over
  1. Silent Witness
  2. Coast/Britain from Above type documentaries
    They always seem to be filmed on a sunny day
  3. Gardeners World
    I didn't care for Monty Don but I think that Toby Buckland is rather sweet and he knows a thing or two about gardening
  4. Ten Years Younger
    I can dream

    And now for the four people who I think will respond - the dotterel, Maggie May, Moannie and Strawberry Jam Anne. I am not telling them. Let's just see if they read this and are up for it.

Now see, you made this look so easy. I think mine took a whole day to try to compose and even then I cheated. :-)

Thanks for playing.

The bit about the gym made me laugh!! I'd go there often to if it involved not actually going ;)

The Dotterel said...

Well, I'm reading. Am I up to it? Probably... you'll have to wait and see! (Seriously, thanks for another entertaining read!)

The Dotterel said...

PS: Meant to say I know the Goshawk, too (used to live in Chester - Abbey Street, in fact: how grand?)

I enjoyed reading your answers. :)

imbeingheldhostage - this took ten days to compose and how do you know I didn't cheat?

the dotterel - I'll look for the blue plaque next time I am in Chester.

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

You've caught me CW - I'll certainly give it a go but it may take me even longer than ten days. Loved your list and some of mine may have to be creative too. All good fun though.

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

Me again - I haven't watched GW for a while - used to love Geoff Hamilton, then Alan Titchmarsh but like you didn't care too much for Monty Don (sorry Monty) - but may have to have a look now at Toby Buckland!

I've already done this one and Tesco featured in mine. Now, who are "able labels"? Is there such a need for labels in your house that you get them from a label company?

cheshire wife said...

SJA - I liked Geoff Hamilton and Alan Titchmarsh too, so I think that you will like Toby Buckland.

WM - I bought some address labels when we first moved here. I think that they came from Able Labels. That's all.

I often go to the gym also.......well in my imagination I go.........it's the same as I often use our treadmill........well I do to store stuff on!!

Great answers,
