Questions for me from Rebecca

1. Summer or winter?
Ooh tricky but I think it has to be winter as I am left disappointed by summer and the total lack of sunshine.

2. What makes you laugh?
mainly my husband.

3. If you could only eat one food for the rest of time, what would it be?
without a doubt it would have to be chocolate

4. Describe your perfect evening....
Friday evening, P.J's on, candles lit, cup of tea in hand watching gardeners world (I am a girl of simple pleasures!)

5. What were your favourite subjects at school?
Art and History

6. Do you have any pets?
yes I have a Bedlington Terrier who goes by the name of Bruce Willis and until recently I had two chickens, Dame Judi and Bobby, sadly they were taken from our garden.

7. What are your favourite hobbies?
mainly crochet and gardening if I want to relax and watching live music when I'm feeling loud and lively!

8. If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would it be and why?
I'm not really one for air travel these days so I would say Dunwich beach because it's so beautiful and because we spent many a happy hour there this summer.

9. What is your favourite book?
I don't think I really have a favourite book *gasps
 but I did love reading Atonement.

10. Where is your favourite place to eat
I'm torn between Wiveton Hall as their chocolate brownies are to die for and The White Swan Inn at Pickering where I had the best steak  and chips I have EVER tasted.

11. What do you think about the most.... the past, the present or the future?
OOOH another tricky one....again I am torn between the past and the future, I'm too busy living in the present to have time to think about it.
I do hark back to the past quite a lot, but I think I would have to say the future. I'm always thinking about what I have to do tomorrow or next week or even next month so yeah I would definitely say the future.

  1. Thanks for tagging me, I did this a few months ago but will answer your questions. Nice to find out more about you :) x

    1. I know a few people who I have tagged have already done it. I don't normally go in for this kind of thing but you have to get into the spirit don't you.

      I am like you at the moment, I don't have a contract either which is slightly worrying but it seems it's quite normal and sometimes I think it can even work in your favour.
      Have a lovely weekend x
