As I was going to St Ives........

Susan had to work on Tuesday so we drove to St Ives to take her to lunch

Popster & I lived here for a few months when we first got married
So did Oliver Cromwell!

We set out in search for our little flat
It has totally changed but I think this is the street.........
Image result for english phone booth......this could be the house.  We lived on the second floor & a "creepy old man" lived downstairs.  I locked myself out one night when Popster was working the night shift on the base.  I had to go up the phone booth in the square to call him to rescue me.  I remember hiding out in the phone booth until his friend showed up with keys!

Look at this cars allowed anymore

The alleyways are so neat

This is where Susan works.  We picked her up & went for fish & chips....yummo!

Does Popster blend in with the locals......hahahaha!
As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives? 
What is the answer to the riddle?



  1. you know I loved that post. Tell Popster that that is Lily and Rosies absolute FAVOURITE Poundland.

    I had no idea you and Oliver lived there, I must say you look years younger,

    1. I just showed Rosie the photos and asked her where it was. She said Onley at first but as soon as she saw the bridge she guessed. It's uncle Colin's. Lol.

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val
