If you were given a boat or yacht today, what would you name it? (You can always sell the yacht later)
I’ve seen some very clever and amusing names for boats on my walks around various harbours. Unfortunately I can’t remember any of them right now. I think I would call my yacht “Rainbow’s End”.
Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be?
It depends; Sneezy would work as I’m prone to bouts of sneezing. These days it could also be Grumpy for the number of things that are not to my liking (TV shows, people’s manners, things that are not like they used to be and of course the government.)
The 8th dwarf could be a high-tech dwarf called Geeky.
Name a song or two which are included on the soundtrack to your life?
When David and I would set off on a driving trip we would often play “Road to Nowhere” by Talking Heads. We enjoyed road trips and we sometimes enjoyed going for a drive in a general direction but with no set plans for what we would do. Also it’s great driving music.
Another one I would pick is “Telephone Booth” by Ian Moss. It’s one of my favourite songs and hearing it always gives me a sense of well-being although I can’t really explain why.
Complete this sentence: I like watching…
- Cindy and Polly playing with each other, it always makes me smile.
- Birds in my garden.
- Cricket at Bellerive on a summer evening
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week I didn’t do anything out of the ordinary but it was nice to have a quiet week. A nice customer at the Op Shop gave me three dolls that she no longer wanted. I have written about them on my doll blog.
My daffodils are all flowering now. The jonquils are nearly finished, the King Alfred’s were looking very nice but took a battering from the strong winds today and the last ones, the Erlicheers are just coming through. Some of my other bulbs are also starting to flower and I’ve been eagerly watching the trees for signs on new leaves on the Japanese and Weeping Maples and the Gleditsia. I hope I will be seeing some in the coming week.
