What is your favorite month of the year?
I like December, the run up to Christmas with decorations, Christmas Pageants, Christmas food to make, present buying and wrapping and getting together with friends and family. After Christmas there is cricket, The T20 Big Bash and the Boxing Day Test Match, the Sydney Hobart yacht race and the Taste to look forward to. The weather is usually nice, not too hot or cold. December is definitely the most fun month of the year to me.
Do you drink coffee at all?
Yes, I do drink coffee. Some might say rather too much of it and I’m trying to cut back a bit. I come from a British background and grew up drinking tea by the gallon. We’d put the kettle on to boil for a cuppa at the drop of a hat. Hubby doesn’t drink tea though. Actually, when I met him he didn’t drink coffee either so I’m probably responsible for him taking it up. Once he started drinking coffee I switched to drinking coffee most of the time at home. I still enjoy tea though. I make it when my sister comes over as she doesn’t care for coffee and at her place we revert to our childhood habits and sit at the kitchen table drinking cups of tea and talking.
What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)?
My first job after I left school was on a cash register in a department store called Moore’s in South Australia. I think my first wage was around $30 for the week. I didn’t work in the big store in the city. I worked at the one at the local shopping centre. The stores are long gone but the shopping centre is still there.
List: If you play video/computer games list 5 games you like?
Not in order but:
- Hidden object games
- The Sims
- Sim City
and that’s about all I play.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week my sister and I had a nice lunch at the Wrest Point Casino. I allowed myself $20 to play on the poker machines after lunch and when I had to leave just after 3pm I still had it plus an extra $9. My sister did a lot better and won a couple of hundred dollars which was great.
Next week I hope that the builder will start renovating the smallest room in the house and I will have nice new floor tiles to show you.
