It has come at a good time as I wouldn't usually have time to indulge . . . but as I'm still on second day "forced rest" . . . I've managed to keep the washing/drying down to four loads today, mopped the kitchen and made a "proper" shepherd's pie . . . I have a few hours spare to ponder.
I think this might do me good. Even if it only serves to remind me that I exist, this could be very valuable exercise.
1. What is(are) your secret (or not so secret) outrageous longing(s)?
Wow this has got me thinking. I went from thinking I didn't have one . . . To having to choose which one to write. I could be here a long time. I hate decisions . . . O for God's sake it can't be so complicated . . . This is question one! ermmmm
Ok to be a grade 8 pianist (or even just a real good pianist) . . . To make my kids proud of me (yes, I know totally outrageous ;-) . . . and to own and drive a camper van.
2. What kind of restaurants do you prefer right now? Or what's your favourite meal to make at home?
Well for the last few days (since I stopped using . . Did I mention I'd stopped using ;-) I have craved sweet chilli sauce!? I've been ordering doner kebab meat from the local "Take-away" just for something to put the sauce on. I could end up with a raging "sweet chilli sauce" habit.
3. What is your dream vacation?
O boy what a question . . . At the minute, ideally, I could do with a week (maybe two) somewhere hot with a sea breeze . . . clean, beautiful sand and sea. For the most part alone with some good books. Hotel suite leading onto beach. Top nosh. Personal trainer/masseur for an hour or two a day. A couple of "clothes/sandals/jewelry shopping therapy" days thrown in . . . O stop it. That's enough. I'm getting pissed off now ;-)
4. When relaxing in the evening, say on a Friday at home, what beverage would be sitting next to you?
Shit I was happy at that hotel . . . I've right come down now. Anyway, once again, until a few days ago it was Ovaltine . . . I couldn't go a night without it . . . BUT that went hand in hand with the gear. Hamper G in bed = Ovaltine and foil out. No more. So it's a big mug of
If I didn't know better I might think I was pregnant. My entire "taste" has changed.
5. Which goal in life have you achieved that gives you the most pleasure?
Well I can't claim to have achieved any goals as I don't remember having ever set any . . . Shit! I just forgot my most recent . . . How could I forget? That was a goal wasn't it? . . . To get clean. That's definitely giving me pleasure. I still can't quite believe it . . . Sorry to go on but the question was very "leading" your honor.
6. Have you ever reluctantly done something you were urged to do by friends/family that you ended up really enjoying (good or bad)
Only the obvious. I'm not sure that I was urged to do it but certainly encouraged, as in . . . Try it! you can't get addicted if you smoke it. I was definitely reluctant having got through 37 years without it but I thought I was "safe" and would not become an addict . . . Little did I know.
7. Have you ever done something that was, for you, very risky,exciting or dangerous?
Not recently no. Many years ago though yes although I didn't see or want to see the danger at the time. Possibly the most danger I put myself in was "running away" from a situation in Spain and hitching alone up through Spain to France. Three times during that escapade I thought I might die . . . but at the time I wasn't afraid. Which is possibly what got me through.
8. Have you ever had any "exotic" or unusual pets?
Only my 27 (?) Roborovski hamsters, who I must clean out tomorrow . . . And re-count.
9. Have you ever had an unusual job?
Hmmmm. Putting flyers under car windscreen wipers for a private detective in Nice in August! The heat was unbearable. The weight of the holdall full of flyers at the beginning of the day was back-breaking. But some of the things you catch
10. If you were available and found the right person, would you get married?
Yes I think I would . . . I've never been married and I would have to be so so sure it was right . . . But if I was that sure then yes.
11. Which famous person have you been told you look like?
Again, recently I haven't been told I look like anyone famous . . . When I lived in France I was constantly being told I looked like Jane Birkin (English actress/singer
That's Sunday evening gone . . . I will post this and think up some questions to pass on tomorrow. It's half term so Geekster will be at home. He has promised to set the scanner up for me so I can have some fun with old photos . . . Whilst I'm resting. Back to the Dr. again . . . I'm definitely on the mend but would like to see this infection cleared . . . Totally.
Sweet dreams to you all across the globe. Thanks for reading and Goodnight.
