One of Mrs Green's favourite fruits - blackcurrants

One of Mrs Green's favourite fruits - blackcurrants

I’ve been tagged by the lovely Mrs A from the Rubbish Diet.

If I’m tagged or sent awards; Saturday is the day to let my hair down and indulge in things that have nothing to do with My zero waste and have everything to do with me!

The rules are:

1. Mention the person(s) who tagged you
2. Complete the list of 8’s
3. Tag 8 others and let them know

8 things Iā€™m looking forward to:

Dh building more LED lights so we can be fully on solar lighting downstairs
decluttering and living a simplified life in terms of ‘stuff’Ā  (that’s an ongoing one!)
Autumn. Although I love the sun of the summer, autumn is my favourite season
getting the air conditioning fixed in the car
eating. I’m hungry right now
Harvesting more goodies from the garden
getting more body, mind, soul balance in my life
seeing My zero waste grow in readership and helpful content

8 Things I did yesterday

Travelled home from a holiday in Devon
was grateful for everything in my life
unpacked
played with the cat
cried
meditated
laughed
danced

8 Things I wish I could do

Live close to like-minded people
afford a full time gardener
stop the world and get off
understand what drives people towards greed
be more patient
be kinder to myself
have a 36 hour day
sleep better

8 Favourite fruits

apples
raspberries
blackcurrants
apricots
plums
nectarines
pineapple
tomatoes

8 Places Iā€™d like to travel

Into other people’s minds
To the Otherworld
across the astral planes
To Atlantis
Back to the cave days
To the 1920’s
within, more often
to a clean bathroom every morning

8 Places I’ve lived

In a semi detached house close to a playing field
In a detached house close to friends
In a converted barn in the middle of a forest
in an old house I always knew I would live in
in a converted stable block
In an Elizabethan vicarage
In an ex council house
in my mind, heart and soul

8 people Iā€™m tagging

none; because this is one of the most boring tags I’ve done (I mean come on – 8 favourite Fruits? WTF?) , but if anyone wants to take part leave a comment and well, consider yourself tagged by me.

    Oh, you lived in such exciting places!! šŸ™‚

    interesting plans to travel too.. do tell if you make it to 1920s!! šŸ™‚

    blackcurrants – yuck, been forced to eat ’em as a little kiddie, so we’re not best of friends! – they’re very healthy though, & MUCH more healthy & zero waste than oranges, so I started eating ’em again last year! šŸ™‚

    I’ve been tagged by Mrs A too, not sure if I’ll get round to do it, I like your elegant solution with taging other people!! šŸ™‚
