1. As a child, did you prefer to watch TV, play games outside on a nice day, or read?
Mostly I read or played inside with my dolls but sometimes I’d be outside on a nice day. We didn’t really watch TV during the day that much. If I wasn’t at school, I found that the daytime children’s programs were for much younger children or maybe mum would be watching some old movie or her favourite soaps. The kids’ programs that I did like generally started after 4pm.
2. What would you rather do now, read a book, watch a movie at home, dine out with friends, or go down the pub?
I do enjoy a nice pub lunch from time to time and maybe a flutter on the “pokies” but I don’t really go to the pub to drink. When I lived in Geeveston I used to go out to lunch at a pub, cafe or restaurant once a month with friends. I couldn’t have afforded any more often than that. I probably prefer reading a book to watching a movie.
3. Are you fashion conscious?
No. OK I probably should say a bit more than that. I would rather be comfortable than fashionable; I like particular colours and styles and wear those regardless of what is “In” or “Out”.
4. Do you wear slippers, clogs or go barefoot indoors?
Mostly I wear slippers so that if I have to go outside, we have an outside laundry, I don’t have to hunt for footwear. In warm weather I do like to go barefoot but I’m a wimp about walking on gravel or stones barefoot.
Di says “You don’t need a special occasion to buy or be given flowers.“
I do agree, it is always a joy to be given flowers.
Di also shared this meme which I like.
Funnily enough yesterday I ran outside between downpours of rain to photograph a few flowers in the garden. I’m always grateful for flowers because when we lived in Adelaide my attempts to grow them were never very successful. I loved my flowers in Geeveston, roses, daffodils and other bulbs I’d plant every year. We’re trying to do the same here although the roses are having a hard time but we did have fabulous tulips this year. Anyway, this was one of the flowers I photographed.
