The next installment in my series of Sisterhood of World Bloggers posts is in response to the great set of questions I received from Izzie at The World According to Izzie.
So, get ready for some more random facts about me!
1. Champagne or cocktails?
Champagne, every time :)
2. What do you watch on TV when no one else is home?
Demons or vampires! Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries are at the top of my list for a bit of indulgent me-time.
3. Name three people, dead or alive who you’d like to invite for dinner
My father, Elizabeth Gilbert and Doris Day.
4. How would your best friend describe you?
Hmm. I honestly don’t know. Partly because I wouldn’t really say that I have a best friend, a lot of good friends yes, but no single bestie. And partly because I’m the absolute worst at working out what people actually think of me! I would hope they would say I was friendly, kind, reliable and fun…
5. What were the last three things you bought?
Well, let’s ignore food and kids’ birthday presents, which is all I seem to have bought recently! A lovely orange and pink infinity scarf (a colour combination I had never considered until recently, but love!), The Complete Book of Home Organisation by Toni Hammersley (in my continued quest to declutter and organise) and I’ve just ordered Traveling with Pomegranates by Sue Monk Kidd (this months Book Club book, which I had to return to the library before I finished it, as I was enjoying it so much I decided I wanted my own copy!).
6. Do you have any hidden talents?
Not that I’m aware of!
7. What do you wish you’d known at the age of sixteen?
That it’s okay; being a teenager sucks, but it gets better.
8. Chocolate – white, dark or milk?
9. What drives you completely insane?
My husband would say everything… but the first thing that popped into my head was waste. I hate, hate, hate to see people wasting things; food, resources, time. Drives me nuts.
10. Name your top three favourite books.
I find this such a difficult question to answer, I have so many favourites and the list keeps growing! But, if I had to name three then it would be The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, Magician by Raymond E. Fiest, After You’d Gone by Maggie O’Farrell and Rhapsody by Elizabeth Haydon. Okay, that’s four, but I did my best :)
Thanks again to Izzie for the great questions, and look out for the next installment where I answer the questions posed by Ersatz Expat.
