Sooo, here we go.... and just for fun, some random sunshine-y photos too (unless otherwise stated all photos are taken by me)
Favourite Colour: ok, that's easy! er... hang on, wait. Let me think now. Hmmm. OK, how's about this, I saw a divine mustard scarf recently. Mustard. Done! Actually, wait; I'm lately also rather thrilled about that wonderful shade of ox-blood red I achieved here... And then of course there's my best neutral, olive. And my perennial allegiance to ivory remains unabated. Oh, and then there is charcoal, and pinky-beige, and muddy chocolate, and pure white, and burnt orange, and duck-egg blue, and raspberry ... and ... and ...
Favourite Animal: I am ridiculously soft and soppy about all animals. Except for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes, I squish. Mosquitoes bringeth no good to the world. Apart from being frog food. That one sole good deed on the part of mosquitoes.
Favourite Number: What...? Do other people really have favourite numbers? I don't know if I could pick just one. The infinite others would feel left out :)
Favourite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Aha! at last, one for which I can give a straight answer... tea! English Breakfast. In a proper tea cup, please. Strong, and with a little bit of milk. No, no sugar, but thanks for offering.
Facebook or Twitter: I've recently discovered a whole host of old school friends on Facebook. It was so awesome!
(btw, this topless person is not me, but is the husband!)
My Passion: no prizes for guessing that one... :D
Getting or Giving Presents: er... both?? Y'know what; I've been thinking about that one, and I've decided that it is one of those posers to which 99% of people will give exactly the same answer, the one I just gave. Think about it. Answering the former would be a no-no, except to garner laughs, and answering the latter is raaather priggish, so is equally a no-go... it's a non question, really. What do you think?
Favourite Pattern: Well, it changes all the time. Virtually with each new project. Right now I am in raptures all over again with McCalls 5525, since I have just completed a new coat that I am insanely pleased with.
(Craig took this one. This is me, on a stand-up paddle board!)
Favourite Day of the Week: Well. Any day that the whole family's schedules serendipitously dovetail so we all happen to be all home for dinner, together, at once. This happens rarely. But when it does, it is my favourite day of that week.
Favourite Flower: In first place; my daughter, the most beautiful blossom in my life. In second place; big old-fashioned roses in shades of pink, apricot and old-gold. The sort that get blousy and overblown and scatter their petals in gorgeous profusion. Which then dry into sweet-smelling colour-distilled scraps. Which then becomes divine pot-pourri.
Favourite celebrity role model: Now why would I idolise a stranger when I have such amazing women in my real life? Srsly :)
So now, to pass the sunshine-y love along....
