I’ve received another tagging.
Manicmama, not content with knowing what’s on my desktop, now wants to know what my ultimate life would be.
I will be (mostly) honest.
Q1. Where would you live?
A big old granite Jersey farmhouse, set around a courtyard containing a circular apple crusher overflowing with trailing geranium. It would have a large garden, a gardener, a tennis court and swimming pool, and good weather all summer.
It would be in the countryside, but near the beach, and also near a bus route so I don’t have to ferry the children around all the time once they’re old enough to read a bus timetable… next year hopefully.
Q2. What would your job be (or if unrealistic) what would you do all day?
I would earn enough through writing, not to have to do any other paid work.
I would work five half days a week, term-time only, and would spend the rest of the time fetching the children, cycling, swimming, surfing, and drinking coffee at Big Vern’s.
Q3. Who would you spend your time with? Doing what…
I’d spend time with my family, with visiting friends, and with fascinating people met during the course of my work.
I’d have long, leisurely, fruits de mer lunches, go for walks along the cliff paths and in the French countryside, and I’d travel for six weeks every summer with the family in a massive Wild Thornberrys type RV.
Q4. What kind of holidays/vacations would you take?
Ski-ing, regular visits to France, maybe a cruise if I got really tired with all my taxing tasks.
Or perhaps I’d just stay put.
Q5. What luxury items would you own?
A very fast, vintage sports car with a soft top and no space for the children.
And maybe a boat, if I could find someone to pilot it.
Q6. What charities would you support or represent?
Alzheimers Disease Association.
