What do you consider is the most perfect food for you? (It can be your favorite food to something extremely healthy.)
Most of the time I have only myself to please and the most perfect food for me is the one that I feel like cooking. Today, after a tiring day at the Op Shop it will most likely be something from the freezer. When I cook I generally put aside the extra portions for days like this. If I have the time and inclination to cook, the perfect food for me is more comfort food than cordon bleu. Meat, potatoes and two or three veg, stir fried chicken and vegetables with rice, Shepherd’s pie or a casserole of some kind, pasta with Bolognese sauce. If I’m really not feeling like bothering oven cooked frozen fish and chips with veg or a pizza from the supermarket are just fine too.

Are you focused on today or tomorrow?
I think I am more focussed on the present. I concentrate on the short-term future, what’s going on at the Op Shop, slowly getting jobs done around the house, what photos I need to take for our blogs. I do think about the near future a lot too Christmas, next year’s holiday, getting the house on the market or the long-term future but the further away things are the harder it is to visualise them.
If you could interview one of your great-great-great grandparents, who would it be (if you know their name) and what would you ask?
Family members on each side of my family have researched the family tree but without that information in front of me I don’t recall names of any of them. I think that rather than interviewing them I’d like to have a time machine to travel back to their time. I’d like to see where they lived and what their everyday life was like, I’d like to see their homes, where they went to work, where they went on holiday if they had any.

Ovation of the Seas – Hobart ,13 Dec 2016
It is six months now until Naomi and I head off on our next cruise adventure on Ovation of the Seas. Although the cruise has been booked for over a year it seemed so far away that it did not seem very real to us. On our trip to Hobart last weekend we went to see our travel agent. We now have flights booked, to Sydney and back home from Singapore afterwards. We have a night booked in a hotel in Sydney as we like to arrive the day before the cruise and a week booked in a nice hotel in Singapore that Naomi has stayed in before. On the Royal Caribbean website I was able to reserve a trip on the North Star observation pod. Our trip now feels a lot more real to us.
