Harry and I had a busy but productive three days over the weekend. First up was a trip to the Midlands, to inspect the work being done on our younger daughter's house. Then, straight from there to Cornwall at the other end of the country, to carry on helping with the renovation of the ancient cottage our elder daughter and her partner are doing up. It's coming on well, though there's still a lot to do. The phone signal is poor there and they still have no Wifi. No wonder BT has been rated below the banks for customer service.
Cornwall wasn't looking quite so lovely as on our previous visit -
Ah, here's a much better view -

Anyway, Harry agreed to answer the questions in Lilli's meme, so here's our shot at it...
1. What is something I always say?
Have you locked the back door?
Yes, I say that a lot, I have a thing about it.
2. What makes me happy?
Going across my knee.
3. What makes me sad?
Getting up in the morning.
I wouldn't say it makes me sad, I'm just not a morning person.
4. How tall am I?
5. What is my favourite thing to do?
Reading your iPad - can't keep you off it.
Guilty as charged.
6. What do I do when you're not around?
Read your iPad.
There is some truth in that but I do keep house sometimes.
7. If I became famous what would it be for?
In Harry's dreams, I could pen the next £1million best seller.
8. What makes you proud of me?
Your intelligence and good looks.
9. What is my favourite food?
And crème brûlée.
10. What is my favourite restaurant?
A special place.
11. Where is my favourite place to visit?
France - no, wait! New York.
I love New York.
12. If I could go anywhere, where would it be?
13. How do I annoy you?
Let me count the ways...
No, let's skip that one.
14. What is my favourite film?
A Good Year.
France and Russell Crowe, what's not to love?
15. You get a phone call that I am in trouble, who will I be with?
Your Mum. She'd be the one in trouble, you'd be looking after her. (Pause)
Sixteen seconds. (Puzzled look) Sixteen seconds is the time it would take me to
collect up the necessities and hit the road if you needed me.
But would he remember to lock the back door?
Thanks to Lilli for sharing this meme.
