You might have read my first liebster award for new bloggers – well my second nomination came from the lovely Mrs H – thank you sweetie! Please go and check her out – find out how she kissed John Barrowman!
Here’s the questions she asked of me..
1. What is your favourite book?
I love reading but very rarely get a chance to do it anymore! I love good thrillers, and a good chick lit but my favourite genre are any books based in faraway places like China, India etc… for that reason my fave ever book is ‘Memoirs of a Geisha’ – it got to all my senses like being able to see and smell blossom trees… still can’t believe it was written by a man!
2. If a film was made of your life which actress would you want cast as you?
Either Renee Zellwegger or Clare Danes – only because I’ve been flatteringly-told I have slight resemblances to them (I wish!)
3. What is your favourite way to spend a summer evening?
Sitting in the garden with a glass (bottle) of Prosecco, lovely nibbles, a good magazine and my family 🙂
4. What is your happiest memory?
Has to be the moment that baby W was laid on my chest just after being born
5. If you could have any super power what would it be and why?
I would like to be able to sprinkle fairy dust wherever it’s needed – this stuff could fix wars, broken hearts etc 🙂
I also like Karl Pilkington’s ‘Bullsh*t man’ character – there are lots of people I’d like him to make a visit to!
6. Tea or coffee?
I like a good coffee now and again but it has to be tea – I get through about 10 cups a day!
7. What would you do if you were Prime Minister for the day?
Oooh good question! Essay coming up…
Sort out the housing crisis by repurposing lots of our old, unused buildings – turning them into housing and community buildings. Also on the same note, limit the amount of housing that can be sold to overseas buyers – it doesn’t affect me but it sounds like this is a nightmare in London. In Dubai overseas buyers are only allowed to buy in certain areas – I think this could work in London?
I know unemployment is improving and there are some good, hardworking people who are still unable to find work. However, for all the benefit scroungers out there I can’t understand why they aren’t asked to do some type of community service (e.g. volunteering/ maintenance/ community projects???) or join the army or anything else that’s useful for the rest of us that are paying for them?
I love the NHS but it could be improved – I’d bring in a business guru like Lord Sugar to try and streamline things… not to focus on targets on care but thinking back to my pregnancy, and also an eye condition I suffer from – I’ve spent SO MANY HOURS hanging about in our local hospital – things could be organised a lot better and that would save them money!
I could go on but that will do for now!
8. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I went through phases… fashion designer, author and then for years I wanted to be an investigative journalist!
9. What makes you laugh?
Baby W laughing… being silly…. Fawlty Towers…. An idiot abroad….
10. What three words would your friends use to describe you?
Easy-going, laid-back, disorganised
11. Bags or shoes?
