I read ClaireinParis blog and thought I can do this too, so here goes...
A= Available or Married?
Married 30 years this year.
B=Book you are reading?
I like trashy love stories :) and mysteries just finished the Phryne Fischer Mysteries which had both included ( I know ... I know but hey I like them)
C=Cake or Pie?
Both of course I love orange and almond cake (no flour, I seem to gain a lot if I eat floury items.) Pie would have to be Mum's chicken Pie MMM...
D=Drink of Choice?
Water and Green Tea, coffee once a week. But if forced to indulge :) I love Sangria, my daughter and I drank that on our Melbourne adventure last year.
Has to be sparkpeople ...no question... tracking, the quizzes, reading the fitness and motivation pages, spinning the wheel, all has to be completed before I get my prize...you guys and going to FRIEND FEED.
Hmm, if it was clothing I was stuck in black to hide behind but as I'm breaking out for summer I have to go with orange my latest Jean colour!!!
G = Game to Play or Watch?
I'm a KIWI girl at heart so has to be rugby All Blacks if poss, but I do indulge in American Baseball as well. Played has to be Zumba I'm up to the highest level after a year and I won't miss it. 3-4 days a week at least.
H= Home Town?
I was born in Auckland, New Zealand, but grew up in the Bay of Plenty in a small town by the beach. Wonderful childhood, swimming, fishing, gathering pipis, cockles and mussels. Warm summers at the beach, if it was too cold to go out in winter Dad's idea of a day out was to drive to the Heads ( Head of a tidal river where the sea comes in) and watch the waves crashing through the breakers...sigh...sniff... oh no ...you got me homesick now....
Has to be Dark chocolate, only have 1-2 pieces every now and then but eat it as slowly as I can to savour the taste.
Part time bookkeeper for hubby's contracting business. We know the meaning of FEAST or FAMINE. It's hard work these days.
K=Kids and Names?
Timothy (Tim) eldest
Rebecca (Bec) youngest
L-Life is Incomplete Without?
Would love to say Hubby (if only to get 'brownie points if he reads this)...but it would have to be Bec, photo below, she has been a wonderful daughter to me, you all know how we feel about going out or doing things being overweight, well she has nutured me into 'living' my life in a way I never have before. Thanks love.
Music Group or Song?
Has to be Beach Boys, I listen to one of their albums over and over on my mp3 player, Bec loaded it for me. I am transferred to a wonderful place and just can go and go when I'm exercising listening to them.
An Australian group Human Nature is a favourite too, they had a Concert in the Park and Bec and I went and loved it (backed by a symphony orchestra. (I think they got a gig in Las Vegas now.)
N=Number of Siblings?
Two brothers : one older, one younger...yes middle child syndrome let's not go there ...I'm enjoying this:)
O=Oranges or Apples?
Like either but Pink Lady apples can't be beaten.
P=Phobias or Fears?
Hmm. some thought required. Snakes and centipedes and scorpions... easy really, when we moved to this house, the foot long centipedes would come out in the rooms at night and also the scorpions ...Scream.... have only has snakes outside but that is close enough.
"Energy and Persistence Conquer All Things" and if I can have two..."The Best Inspiration is Not to Out Do Others But to Out Do Ourselves"
R=Reason to Smile?
The journey I am on has a distant future but I'm heading toward a goal that will be exciting and wonderful on the way as well as when I get there and beyond...
That would be Winter for me, I love frosts and snow. We don't get snow where we are now but we do get 'green grass' in winter as opposed to dead grass in summer.
I love to have people come over for soup and toast and to be cosy. I wrap myself in my blanket and read or knit, it's a gentle existence that soothes me.
Nope not my thing.
U=Unknown Fact About Me?
I was going to put a 'soppy creature" but I think you've got that by now :).
When I turned 50 Bec bleached my brown hair and put a blue/green colour in it. I loved it and the attention.
V=Vege you Love?
Sweet Potatoes or Kumara in Maori.
Easy worrying over things I can't do anything about.
But yes, for my back.
Y=Your Favourite Food?
Have done chocolate so I'll say salmon.
Scorpio but I don't go into it at all.
So as ClaireinParis said it's a bit of fun and we can learn about each other.
Hope we see more blogs soon like this one...
