Anyway I was tagged by Fat, Frumpy and Fifty a wee while ago with the
'The One Sweet Blog' award and it comes with a tag for a meme - a '7's meme.
VII Things which I plan to do before I die:
i. get to a wise old age without going gaga
ii. learn to live and think in the "now"iii. spend my/our money more wisely
iv. save my/our money more sagaciously
v. read even more voraciously
vi. go and watch the English cricket team on tour in a very hot place (unlikely to happen now!!)
vii. declutter (and write a book or two...just thought I'd sneak that in....)
VII Things which I do now:
ii. go round turning lights off
iii. tut at the mess and dog hairs
iv. think about cleaning the car

iv. read other people's minds
v. knit or crochet
vi. get up early (to go jogging)

VII Things which attract me in the opposite sex (Not sure what this means exactly...attract me "to" the opposite sex or does it mean how the opposite sex might be attracted to me?...Sorry! turning into Lynne Truss/John Humphreys/Jeremy Paxman now!!):
v. good food
vii. a sense of direction
(perhaps the answers are interchangeable...although hubbie might dispute the last one! I believe that I do have a pretty good sense of direction except underwater!)
VII Things which I say most often:
i."I think that...(then trail off into silence)..."

v. "put the lights out!"
vi. "tidy up!"
