Big thanks to Far From Home Mama for tagging me in this meme. The idea is to focus on the things that are most important to me, bringing a little sunshine into an otherwise grey month.. Here goes:
Favourite colour: I love pink. Pretty much any shade goes. I even had a (pale) pink wedding cake because I love it so much. It’s such a cheery, soothing colour, though I do appreciate that it’s not to everyones taste. This is not about being a girl, but about it being a colour that makes me happy.
Favourite animal: Do you know, I dont really think I’ve thought about that in years. It used to be dolphins, and I had a pet mouse when I was younger, so many fish are gorgeous though they dont really give a lot back (how selfish of them to think that swimming in a circle should be entertainment enough!), but if I dont say, “Dog” here I think my wee Shih Tzu might be offended, so dog it is.
Favourite non-alcoholic drink: I don’t drink so really this is just my favourite drink. My first response is Diet Irn-Bru (it will never be Irn-Bru Sugar Free, no matter how many adverts they show saying they’ve changed its name), but I also love milkshakes and fancy cocktails with cream/coconut cream/exotic fruits in so long as they don’t have “bits.”
Facebook or twitter: I’ve always loved Facebook but since I started blogging I haven’t been on it much. I’d like to think that it’s because I’ve struck a better life/internet balance but I’ve simply replaced it with Twitter (now that I’ve worked out how to use it!)
Favourite number: I’d be lying if I said I had one. My favourite number will be the final number out when I win the lottery. Note to self: start playing the lottery.
Favourite day of the week: Wednesdays – I have no work at night, no in laws to visit and no travelling 45 mins to visit family as happens on every other night, though starting this week I have a Gaelic phone tutorial on a Wednesday night.
My passion: My family. And I’ve realised just how much I miss teaching in the last few weeks. Not enough to want to go back to work, but I definitely feel passionate about education.
Giving or getting presents: I do love receiving presents but I must admit, I love the challenge of finding something that I think would be just right, or surprising someone out of the blue.
Favourite pattern: Um, don’t think I have one. I tend to like the idea of patterns and then am frightened away when I try to wear them.
Favourite flower: Bluebells growing wild in a bluebell wood.
I’m now passing the baton on to three new twitter friends (and one extra…) Please take the time to read their blogs – each of them are pretty new blogs I’m sure they’d love some new readers:
@ClaireDeeming – Chapters of Claire
@BaGi1972 – Adopt and Keep Calm
