How many languages do you speak?
In high school I studied French and German for two years but as I never used either language after that they are long forgotten. Now I only speak Australian/British English.
What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?
Not necessarily right at this moment but currently.
- Reading: The Mayor of Casterbridge
- Watching: Great British Railway Journeys and other railway related documentaries and “The Games” a satirical comedy about the 2000 Olympics made in the late 1990s.
- Listening to: ABC Classic FM in the mornings and sometimes hits of the 70s in the evening if I am fed up with television. I often prefer silence when I am at home so I can hear the birds.
- Eating: My breakfast toast.
What was the last photo you took with your phone?
My phone is not a smart phone and I find it fiddly to use it for photography although I often use the tablet. Last picture on my phone was of a dead rose bush in my garden to show the garden shop to get a replacement.
What is your favourite time of day?
That’s a tricky one. I am more productive in the mornings and I like looking outside and seeing a bright blue sky and the sun shining but of course that does not always happen. I also like afternoons. I get home from the Op Shop around 3:30 pm and I like the hour or so before I start making dinner when I relax with a cup of coffee, play with Cindy, sit outside if it is nice weather or catch up with reading a few blogs.
Optional 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 decided to empty my filing cabinet ready to be moved out of the room which is to be painted. I packed all the contents into three boxes and in the process I found my passport which I had not seen for a while. I knew it ought not be lost but I was anxious about where it was so grateful to have found it again.
This week I have the painter coming to work on rooms which I cannot paint myself so I will have at least one done by the end of the week I hope. It is my birthday on Saturday and we are celebrating with a dinner with my friends from the Op Shop on Friday night. Naomi will come and join us and she and I will go out to lunch on Saturday. My last two birthdays were not the best and this one is the big 60 so I’m celebrating it in style.
