No, I don't feel the need of social networking sites and would regard it as a thief of my valuable time.

Great question, getreal :)

1. The document case containing birth certificates, passports, financial info etc which everyone knows is the main thing to attempt to retrieve, and is always in the same place.

2. A framed handpainted b/w photograph of my Mum when she was around 4.

3. My laptop or most recent back-up stick.


Such a good question I'll give others a chance on it...

I can't think of anything I'd bother to retrieve. Providing all my family and assorted pets were saved I honestly can't think of anything that I'd bother about.


well.....maybe my ipod.

same question....

We have so much stuff these days. I would take my Highland Bagpipes (hard to replace with something as good), my laptop (wouldn't want to be without it even for a day) and perhaps the hard drive from the server as it has a lot of good things on it including lots of pictures of Katie.


Ok, let's allow the question to run... someone else!

Okay, but let's be absolutely clear that my cats are my first priority. :D Assuming they're safe, I would rescue:

1. My security blanket from when I was a kid
2. My computer
3. A painting done by a close friend of mine who died several years ago

Let's keep it going. Same question...

Time for a change - have you ever been burgled or robbed?

Yes, burgled, and it was a horrible experience on so many levels. Someone left a note for me on the main door to an Edinburgh stair by a bus stop - my brother's flat i was supposedly looking after. When I returned, the front door was open and clearly the flat had been rifled through. Not ransacked or damaged. All my valuables had gone, including a walkman (v expensive pressie from brother) which were unknown in the UK at the time.
I felt very angry, violated, dirty and frightened, living there by myself. The police asked me to list what was missing - which was not easy being full of my brother's eclectic stuff, and they weren't gonna take the baby grand :laughter: The only thing of his that I couldn't find was his bongo drums. Cue Lothian Police to ask all and sundry if they'd seen anyone looking suspicious carrying bongo drums. 3 weeks later I found them in the airing cupboard...

I very unfairly sent the note writer away from my life with a severe ear drilling. Shame. He was a good egg apart from leaving notes without thinking.
I had to tell my brother his fabulous pressie had been stolen and his precious bongo drums were missing, and then that they weren't.
It took me a long time to trust people again.

Horrible experience, but many lessons learnt, all contributing to me being the wise woman I aspire to be.

That's such a sad story, Fia. :sad:

I suppose I aspire to be a successful business woman.

A house in a tiny village -12 houses + one newly built on the site of the old schoolhouse which was pulled down :-)- on a straggly no through road to a farm.
My house is tucked at the back, beside the farm. Rambling garden in varying states of cultivation, mostly dependant on how energetic I feel and how wet the weather is.

Probably the Smithsonian museums in Washington, DC. I could spend ages there. Only a small portion of the collection is on display at any one time. The newer Air and Space museum is especially interesting. The Smithsonian Institution was actually founded by a British scientist who never visited the US.

Most definatly SE Asia-even though I have only been to Thailand and Vietnam.

A close second is Macedonia, where my daughter, her husband and my granddaughter stay-but I don't think of that as a "holiday". It's so much more than that.

An old pair of imitation Crocs that I have practically worn into the ground. They are so comfortable.

I would normally say I am an atheist and wait to see what comes next but if they are knocking on my door to ask me, I might go on a bit.

Probably "Amazing Grace," not because I'm particularly fond of the sentiments but just because it is one that is easy to sing, and many of my clients find it comforting. I've also noticed that, in about 3/4 of the funerals I go to, the hymn "How Great Thou Art" is played or sung.
