What is your preferred hot drink: coffee, tea, water, hot chocolate, or other?
It depends. I’m English so I was brought up with endless pots of tea. I don’t drink it as much now because Hubby doesn’t drink tea but if I visit my sister who doesn’t like coffee I drink a lot of it. Just regular tea with milk I’m not keen on herbal of fruit teas. I like hot chocolate or cocoa on a cold night, with or without a marshmallow. These days my preferred hot drink is coffee and I probably drink way too much of it. I’m trying to cut back a bit or at least to drink more water, cold water. I would get no pleasure from drinking hot water.
What was your favorite toy as a child . . . and now?
I could not say that I’d had just one favourite toy. I loved my teddy bear James but we were not inseparable. The best I can do is to say that my favourite toy was nearly always a doll. My big baby doll Theresa, my walking doll Christine, Sindy and Patch. Today? well I’m still playing with dolls, mostly Barbies, but Theresa, Christine, Sindy and a replacement Patch still live with me.
Candy factories of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy. Which kind, if you were calling the shots?
If they all made Quality Street I could live with that.
Would you want $100,000 right now or $120,000 in a year (tax Free)?
Hmm good question. I am assuming the second option is $120,000 in a year from now not $120,000 in the course of a year. If that were an option who wouldn’t take that? It’s more money, $10,000 a month would be fine with me. But to return to the first idea I think I’d take the money now because there are things that I’ve been waiting to do around the house for several years already and I’m tired of waiting. I want to do them now.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful for good friends who volunteer to drive us to and from Hobart when Hubby is sick and has to go to hospital. Next week I’m looking forward to (I hope) not visiting the hospital.
