Always happy to be alive – the alternative is pretty gloomy and I have to be happy about the fact I have a grandson.
Do you prefer ketchup or mustard or mayonnaise?
Wholegrain mustard would be my pick every time. In New Zealand they used to make a mayonnaise with a can of condensed milk amongst other ingredients. That was pretty delicious but thank goodness my taste buds have matured.
If you were to paint a picture of your childhood, what colors would you use?
Beige, olive green and brown. We moved many times and I was not comfortable in the company of new people. It took me a long time to adjust to each move and when I had finally settled we were off again. Beige for the sparsity of emotional connection (like it had dried up somewhere along the way); olive green for the outdoors where I spent much of the time and brown for the times I felt lost. I think it was a pretty ordinary childhood. It seems that growing up in the 50s and 60s were hard times for families, coming out of a depression caused by two world wars.
Do you prefer a bath or shower?
A shower is my favourite way to get my clean on although a soak in a hot tub on winter’s night is heavenly, add candles and bubbles and you have bliss.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
We spent four nights with our daughter and her family which was wonderful. We attended music and movement as well as riding lessons with our grandson who is the cutest button in the world and I am totally biased. I am looking forward to my writing mojo stepping into the frame again (we’re back from holiday, get over yourself).
