What type of popular candy you do not like to get?
I don’t like liquorice. I never have. Mum loved it and David was fond of it too but not me. I haven’t had sour candy which seems very popular not but I am pretty sure I would not like it.
What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500?
$500 is a small enough amount that you need not feel guilty about spending it on something frivolous. I mean it’s not going to pay the mortgage off is it? I would enjoy spending it on clothes because I’ve never spent that much in one hit on my wardrobe. I’d also enjoy spending it on dolls as I could indulge in a vintage Sindy or Barbie in good condition or another Pedigree Walker or a Giggles, they are ridiculously expensive in good condition. Alternatively, while it would not last five minutes in Sydney or Melbourne $500 would pay for a couple of nights on Tasmania’s east coast as I’d like to visit Wineglass Bay on the Freycinet Peninsula or the Bay of Fires which I’ve never been to.
Where do you eat breakfast?
If I’m having cereal or eggs I eat at the kitchen counter but more often that not I take my tea or coffee and toast to the computer so I can catch up with what people have posted overnight while I eat. In fact that is what I’m doing right now.
Would you rather ride one of the worlds longest zip lines or bungee jump one of the highest in the world? This will come with a 5-day all expense vacation.
To be honest I would not want to do either of those things as I am afraid of falling and I worry about my glasses falling off. If I didn’t wear them I would not see the scenery I was falling through so I feel there would be little point. I’m not into adrenalin rushes. However, I would like a five day vacation so if I were forced to pick one I’d take the zip line because there is no way I would jump off a tower head first. Falling is scary enough without being upside down.
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 the distraction of watching cricket on T.V. especially the three exhibition matches played in the USA last week. It was a lot of fun to see some of the legends of cricket playing together. The matches were played in such a good spirit that they were very enjoyable to watch and even Shane Warne was not too annoying.
The rest of this week will be full of necessary tasks gradually being accomplished but next week my sister and I plan to have a day out in Hobart. There is a cruise ship docking in Hobart for the day and we hope to catch a glimpse of her at the wharf and I’ll take some photos, then we might go to the Botanical Gardens or if the weather is bad perhaps we will go and rummage at one of the Tip Shops which we both enjoy doing.
