Friday: questions and answers

I saw this on Facebook and thought it would be better than whinging about teeth today.  Feel free to copy and use.
Back to normal tomorrow!

1. Who are you named after?
My Mum's full sister.  I never really knew her as she was a GI bride and lived all her adult life in the States.  Towards the end of her life we communicated a lot via Facebook, which was nice.  She passed away about six months or so before Mum did.  Long living ladies, both of them

2. Last time you cried? 
Can't remember.  Not that long ago.  Ah, I remember, it was when watching a back episode of DIY:SOS.  That often makes me cry.

3. Do you like your handwriting?
It depends.  It's a very variable thing and generally not all that neat so when I nag my students I always feel slightly hypocritical!

4. What is your favorite meat?
I love a nice piece of steak, cooked well but I like most meat really.

5. Longest relationship?
Twelve years married.

6. Do you still have your tonsils?
No, not since I was about eight or nine.  My brother and I had them out at the same time and were next to each other in hospital in the children's ward.

7. Would you bungee jump?
Not a chance in a billion.

8. What is your favourite cereals? 
It has to be oats - porridge, pancakes, waffles, overnight oats, baked oats.  I love it all!

9. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? 
Not unless I have to - which means I have to undo them before I put them on again.

10. Do you think you're strong? 
What does that mean?  Define 'strong'.  
Physically I'm getting stronger thanks to Lindsey's training.  In other non-physical ways it varies according to the situation and the circumstances.  I'm still here so I must have a certain amount of strength.

11. Favorite ice cream?
toffee/honeycomb.  I prefer sorbet though.

12. What is the first thing you notice about a person?
er - I think their smile (assuming they are smiling)

13. Football or Rugby?
No, thank you.

14. What colour trousers are you wearing?
Blue jeans.

15. Last thing you ate? 
Sweet potato nachos with a spicy sauce and it was delicious.

16. What are you listening to? 
Nothing.  My hearing aids are out.

17. If you were a crayon, what colour would you be ? 
Blue, definitely.

18. What is your favourite smell?

19. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone? 
I don't do phones.

20. Hair colour? 
Going very grey now with blondish lights when the sun shines on it.

21. Eye colour? 

22. Favourite foods to eat? 
I don' have a favourite, I like lots of different things.

23. Scary movies or happy endings?
Happy endings, definitely, and no nasty violence.

24. Last movie you watched?
At the cinema?  No idea, it was so long ago.  On DVD - Paddington 2 and I loved it!

25. What colour shirt are you wearing? 
Blue T shirt.

26. What is your favourite holiday?
My favourite place ever was Streele Farm although  I haven't been there for ages now.   It's not the area (which is lovely) it's that the place is so lovely.
I dearly love the Peak District too

27. Beer or wine? 
Chilled dry bubbly stuff.  ANy time!

28. Night Owl or Morning Person? 
Definitely morning, without any shadow of doubt.  Half past six is a lie in.

29.  If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Oh, the Peak District, without a doubt.  Such a lovely part of the country.  And if I could afford it, I'd shop at the Chatsworth Shop too!

30. Favorite day of the week?
Monday because of helping in FS and knitter knatter club this term
Tuesday because it's SW group and that's fun
Wednesday because of personal training
Thursday because of pottery!
Friday because every fortnight is usually completely free so I can go out and every other week Dad takes me to the Millstream for dinner.
Saturday because I can use my bus pass early to get into town before the crowds
Sunday because Beth comes round on Sundays quite often
Saturday and Sunday every fortnight because I'm at Dad's
I'm not fussy - I like them all.
