I haven’t taken part in a meme for…well, ever actually! Sally over at Who’s The Mummy has tagged me in a Q&A session so I thought I had better get my finger out and take part (that, and the fact that she is my boss! 😉 )
So, I am going to answer the questions that Sally set for me and then set some for another set of bloggers to
make an idiot of themselves answer:
What’s the last really evil thought you had?
Cripes, this is a really hard one! I don’t really think evil thoughts, I have to be honest. I am too worried about what people think of me! Although, when I used to teach people to drive, I would love it if the pupils stalled or took ages when the people behind them were in a complete and utter rush! I guess that is pretty evil, right?!
When did you last donate to charity, and why?
I donate to charity a lot. In fact, I am running a host of giveaways at the moment and, asking people to donate as part of their entry to a charity that helps my nephew. That charity is called Unique which is the Rare Chromosome Disorder Support Group. I also did the Race for Life this year for Cancer Research as well as donating to a couple of bloggers who were taking part in various charity events.
What’s the naughtiest thing you did at school and did you get caught?
I wasn’t all that memorable at school if I am honest. When I first started school I can remember dancing around the classroom with two boys because it was nearly lunchtime and I got into trouble and had to stand facing the wall (that sort of put me off for life). Other than I can remember sitting in a quiet classroom and suddenly laughing at a boy called Paul Phelan making faces through the window after he got sent out in our English lesson. I got in serious trouble for that. I also bunked off a couple of times and didn’t get caught…well, not as far as I know!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
When I was single, I would sit down once Grace was in bed, cook myself a jacket potato with cheese and tuna mayo and watch ‘Don’t Tell the Bride’. I love that programme! I still do that now – but only when Ross isn’t here.
Do you believe in ghosts?
I don’t believe in the traditional ghost – as in the white sheet/Scooby Doo style but I do believe that there is a spirit world and that people watch over you and support you. I have felt that ‘presence’ of someone in the back of the car when I have been driving home at night on my own many times and believed that it was a relative watching over me.
What’s the lamest Christmas present you ever received?
This is an easy one. My Grandma turned into a bit of a nightmare when it came to Christmas and birthdays. She knitted us all jumpers for Christmas once but the necks were all too small so they wouldn’t go over our heads. She told my Mum that she had children with ‘the wrong sized heads’! She also brought me a box of chocolates in hospital once. When I opened them, none of the fitted into their shapes in the plastic trays. It turned out they were all cherry creams. She had saved up the ones she didn’t like!
If you could live in any city in the world, for one year, where would it be?
If money was no object, it would have to be Hollywood and Los Angeles. I would love the chance to try and become an actor there. A proper, decent one. Not for the fame or fortune – I am really not bothered with that – but just for the sheer joy of acting. I would also enjoy looking at all the movie heritage including all the historic studio lots, the walk of fame and also the opportunity to attend the Oscars ceremony.
My 7 Questions are:
- What do you consider to be your 5 minutes of fame so far in your life?
- If you could go back and change anything, what would it be?
- If you could take one film and one piece of music to a desert island, what would you choose?
- Cake or sweets?
- Would would you like to be remembered for?
- What has been your favourite holiday so far?
- Who would you like to swap places with for a day?
