If I could…………

The lovely Catherine at Pushing The Moon has tagged me for this ‘If I could…….” meme.

It was started by Jocelyn from The Reading Residence who called it The Walter Mitty Post, which I think is brilliant!

I usually do my day dreaming during my commute, here is a little insight into my whimsical thoughts!

If I could live anywhere


I actually really love where I live but I wish we had a warmer climate.

I absolutely hate the cold and hope that when I am older, I get to spend a good proportion of the winter in a warmer place.

If I could spend the winter by the sea and even next to a beach, I would be a very contented pensioner indeed.

If I could have any home


I actually love my home and I don’t think I would want another.

But I do wish that our problems with the builder’s were sorted, we have lived here for fourteen months, it is very frustrating!!

However, I would love to transport this house, when it is  finished, to somewhere warmer – please see above.

Nevertheless, because I am a massive contradiction, I often dream about transporting it to Cornwall – I LOVE Cornwall!

If I could have any garden


It would be big enough for a She Shed and I would be looking to Sammy from Seize Each Day to help me decorate it. She has the most fantastic beach hut.

The garden would have an orchard and an old fashioned kitchen garden with a door in the wall that leads to a secret garden.

It would be in Cornwall and have a gate at the very end that leads to a cliff top  with,  a secret beach below.

I would still have pots everywhere filled with flowers and  herbs.

I love them.

If I could be on holiday right now


I would be in Crete, beautiful Crete.

I love the island, the people and the food – it is wonderful!

If I could have any job

I would own a coffee shop.

It would be called the Vanilla Tea Room and himself would work front of house.

I would spend all day baking!


If I could have any talent

I would be able to work a computer ha!

Then I would not have wasted the whole of Saturday afternoon on the phone trying to be self hosted.

Please note the word try,  I am still not self hosted and, I will never get those hours back!

I would be grateful for any advice at this point ha!

If I could live any day again

It would be the first day I was a mum!

It was a wonderful but overwhelming day.

I would tell that frightened girl that it was going to be ok, the baby was going to be ok and life would be ok.

If I could have any superpower

I would have an invisibility cloak, I’m not even sure that is a super power, anyway,  because I am actually quite shy in real life until I get to know someone.

However, when I do know you, I would use it to play tricks on people and try to make everyone laugh.

I now have to pass the fun on and nominate (only if you want to of course);

Sammy from Seize Each Day

Clare from Mud and Nettles

Tara from After The Rain 

Haylee Aloada Bobbins

Amy from Love Made My Home

Thank you for nominating me Catherine x x x

Have a lovely day!

  1. I love your answers, Lisa, and now I want a She Shed too!

    I hope you sort your self hosted issues out – I would love to be able to say I could help but I’m not all that technically minded myself. 😐

    Thanks so much for joining in! Xxx

  2. Ooh I was really enjoying your responses, totally in your fantasy land with you baking cakes by the sea. So immersed I was shocked to see my name! Ha! What a pleasant surprise. 🙂
    This looks a fun one, I’ll be sure to join in soon 🙂

  3. And just to prove how untechnically minded I am I appear to have posted that last comment (and probably this one too!) using my other WordPress account and not my pushing the moon one! Pah! Xxx

  4. Shall we all just open one big geocaching coffee shop?! Haha! Thanks for tagging me although I daydream so much you might still be reading my post at Christmas! We’re away from tomorrow so I’ll think how I could condense my thoughts for when I come back 🙂

    1. Ha! It passes my commute time. I have been trying to find your blog to visit you but there isn’t a link on your profile – or I can’t find it – see post re: technical! If you let me know, I will visit you too! Thank you for popping by xx


  5. Ooooh I just LOVE this and I was sooooo away with your fantasies visualising them all. Sooo excited to be tagged Lisa and thank you for the lovely mention too – of course I’ll help you design and decorate your ‘she-shed’!!
    Can’t wait to sit down and do this one and let my mind wander…
    Hope your day going well lovely lady.

        I’m defo with you on living in warmer climes and your garden sounds fab-u-lous! I would definitely pop into the Vanilla Tea Room it sounds divine and I really love your special power – what a lovely super power to have; that would be totally awesome.

  7. If you do move your house to Cornwall with the garden with the gate to the cliffs and secret beach below please can I come and visit, it sounds absolutely idyllic. Oh and your café sounds lovely too, cakes made with Cornish clotted cream – yummy.
