A Tag for the Taking

I've just been tagged by Wakeup so here it is:-

1.What are your current obsessions?
Writing I suppose. It occupies most of my thoughts. That and trying to get enough sleep.

2. Which item from your wardrobe do you wear most often?
I don't have a wardrobe! Jumpers and a few favourite tops.

3. Last dream you had?
About a young couple who own a bakery – I'm interviewing them in a few weeks!

4. Last thing you bought?
The local paper.

5. What are you listening to?
A car revving in the distance; Mollie squeaking as she dreams; Himself sneezing next door.

6. If you were a god/goddess who would you be?
God of Health, happiness and good sleep. (Greedy, moi?)

7. Favourite holiday spots?
Cant afford holidays.

8. Reading right now?
Re-reading Rhode Island Blues by Fay Weldon.

9. Four words to describe yourself.
Determined, over-sensitive, overly imaginative, unconventional.

10. Guilty pleasure?
White wine – such a shame about hangovers.

11. Who or what makes you laugh until you’re weak?
A chance remark.

12. Favourite spring thing to do?
Walk among the bluebells and smell the wild garlic.

13. Planning to travel to next?
Devon this weekend to see my mum.

14. Best thing you ate or drank lately?
Free range egg on toast for breakfast.

15. When did you last get tipsy?
Last night – our 10th wedding anniversary.

16. Favourite ever film?
Oh, so many! Last one I saw was The Young Victoria – a fabulous love story.

17. Care to share some wisdom?
Hang on in there. The bends take some leaning into, but the straight runs make it all the worthwhile.

18. Song you can't get out of your head?
Tapestry by Carole King.

19. Thing you are looking forward to?
Going to yoga again – I haven't been able to go for months for health reasons.

20 If money were no object, where would you choose to live?
Somewhere warm, by the sea, with a large garden and a spare bedroom for when friends come to stay.

I'm exhausted now! Please take this and run if you want.

Liane - many thanks!! Can't wait.

Crystal - no. There'#s a sort of hanging thing with clothes inside and a cat box, old heater, tent and sailbags n top. I suppose you could call it a kind of wardrobe without doors!

Love the smell of wild garlic. Reminds me of where I grew up.

Hope you had a lovely anniversary, with not too much of a hangover:-)

Flowerpot said...

Liane - thanks!

Lane - thankfully escaped the hangover - and isnt wild garlic just wonderful? Not as bitter smelling as its tame cousin.
