I have been tagged by Jo, I know lots of people have already done this. Perhaps nobody is interested in what I was doing 10 years ago. Anyway...

What was I doing 10 years ago?

In 1998 I had just moved into my first house with my then-boyfriend. I think this time 10 years ago we were just about to break up. I had also just lost my crappy job at the bank and had started working for a really fun company in Warrington. Most of the people I worked there with are now on my Facebook friends list. I was having a lot of fun, not earning much money, had a house that was freezing cold because it didn't have any heating, or a carpet in the bedroom, or even a bed in the bedroom. I think it was fun, but I remember money being a worry. The ex was a tight arse. Anyway ...

5 things on my "to do" list today.

I'm writing this at 9pm, and have done rubbish with my list because it hasn't stopped raining and I haven't felt like doing jobs today.

  • Clean the guinea pigs out (not done)
  • Cut the dogs' nails (kind of done, I only did one of puppy's feet because she was wriggling and it was too much)
  • Choose bathroom tiles, shower unit, towel rail (shower unit and tiles picked, the towel rail caused a minor disagreement here at chez Marmadaisy so was rain checked)
  • Make this week's FQF (done, in fact I made a mess of the first design, and made 2 of the perfected design)
  • Do this meme (in progress!)

Things that I would do if I were a billionaire.

This is so tricky to answer, because we are very lucky that we have enough money for the modest lifestyle we enjoy. I would give most of it away. A large chunk would go towards opening an animal sanctuary locally, and I would probably buy a holiday home somewhere remote and beautiful where friends and family could holiday for free.

Places I have lived.

I'm so boring. I have lived in St Helens, Cheltenham and Wales. That's it!

Snacks I like.

I love eating and am a big snacker. I like most crisps (not ready salted), salad sandwiches, cheese on toast, homemade cookies (I don't like shop bought biscuits, weird huh?), pickled onions, fruit and nut toblerone, haribo.

People I want to know more about.

Everyone who reads this blog. If you haven't done this meme and feel like doing it, please do and post a link for me to go and read yours.

It's interesting to learn where people were and what they were doing 10 years ago. In my case, my husband and I married on July 4, 1998 so our tenth anniversary is coming up. Our honeymoon was a fun and adventurous roadtrip across the U.S. which we used simultaneously for moving to where we currently live in Tucson, AZ.
