I am a little late to the party this week but here are my answers.
(The Final HP Question Set)
Roger’s Magical, Mystical Questions:
- Have you ever driven the wrong way on a one-way street? How did this come about?
As I am a non driver this has never happened to me.
- As a kid, did you ever decide to run away? Did you have a plan? Take a pet? Sandwiches?
I seem to remember threatening to do it but of course I never did.
- You suddenly found you have a hidden talent for playing a musical instrument. What musical instrument do you hope that accompanies your talent? Any particular song?
I never learned to play any musical instrument but if I was magically given the talent to play one I hope it would be piano, acoustic guitar or bagpipes.
- Do you accessorize with jewelry? There was an opal necklace (cursed) and Slytherin’s locket (also cursed) in the Potter story. Have you had any heirloom jewelry passed down through the generations? Is it more ‘keepsake’ or do you wear it on occasion? (Hopefully, yours was not cursed?)
I have a few bits of jewellery but I don’t often wear it. I have a couple of things that belonged to my grandmother, strings of beads but these are keepsakes only. I don’t wear them. From my childhood I have a necklace with crystals, or maybe its glass from my grandma and a bracelet with gemstones. I also have an opal pendant mum gave me when I was in my twenties. I occasionally wear the pendant but the other things are too small of course.
Melanie’s Ordinary Muggle Questions:
What ingredients go into YOUR favorite salad?
My favourite salads are potato salad, coleslaw and pasta salad. I think most people know the main ingredients for these.
If you care to, share something that really irritates you.
Only one thing? Well one thing that really irritates me is two step verification on websites. As you know, I loathe using mobile phones and at home my phone sits on the charger or in my bag. If I am on the computer trying to log in to Amazon or some other website I resent having to get up go and find the phone and unlock it just to get the damn number to input. Why can’t they just send me an email? And why is it a “one time password” if I have to be sent one every time I log in to the website. Pah!
What are your favorite ‘lounging around the house’ items of clothing? Now that a lot of people ‘lounge around the house’ waiting for the all clear in respect to Covid being shown the door, have those lounging items changed?
Not for me. Covid normal wear is my all the time normal. I usually wear track pants (sweatpants) or leggings if I am staying at home, with either a long or short sleeved T-shirt and a polar fleece top or knitted jumper (sweater) or cardigan over it in cold weather. Shoes are usually slippers indoors, or a beat up pair of Colorado shoes or sneakers if I’m outside or walking Cindy.
GRATITUDE (as always this is optional)
Please feel free to share something about Autumn (or Spring if you’re gearing up for that) that you especially enjoy!
Spring is well underway here, there are a lot of daffodils which seem to flower later here than in the Huon and my potted tulips have just started to bloom. This photo is of some of last years tulips
