26 Questions

Ok so I haven’t “officially” been invited but I’m jumping on the bandwagon anyway. This blog is about conversations and dialogues so I think this is a great idea.

1. Introduce how you got involved in these 26 questions: I was proposed to answers these by Racquel from:

Racquel Writes

She’s a lawyer and relatively new in this blogging world (like me!) please go and look at her site, it’s really good! She seems very interesting, nice and like a lot of fun!

2. Who are you named after?

I can’t recall that my first name is from anyone in particular. However my third name (yes I got 3?!) is from my great- great grandmother and it is Cornelia. This was decided when I was 11 and at the time I was not too happy about it as it was a rather uncool name. Now, I kind of like it.

3. Do you like your handwriting?

No- not at all. It’s all over the place. I think it’s because these days I write most things using technological gadgets so I rarely practice handwriting. (Or maybe that’s just a good excuse!)

4. What is your favourite lunch meat?

That would be chicken

5. Do you still have your tonsils?


6. Longest relationship

My marriage…

7. Would you bungee jump?

Well, I have actually done this. And not just once but two times! Both over water. It was very cool. I wouldn’t do it today though. These days I have to force myself joining my daughter on the rollercoasters she loves! The things you do for your kids…

8. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?

Yes absolutely. Currently in Converse a lot but strongly considering going back to Sketchers again! I love them. And so much easier to get in and out of! On my wish list…

9. Favourite ice-cream

Difficult choice but if I really have to chose that would be pistachio

10. What’s the first thing you notice about people?

That would be the eyes… I really do think they mirror a persons personality (some say soul)

11. Football or baseball

Neither but if there are big events on… I’d watched them both!

12. What colour pants are you wearing?

Just plain ol’ black ones

13. Last thing you ate?

Dried apricots- actually rather delicious ones

14. If you are a crayon colour what colour would you be?

I’d most definitely be a purple one

15. Favourite smell

For me that is that of newly cut grass after a rainstorm when the rays from the sun are appearing again and slowly warming up the air… so fresh!

16. Who is the last person you spoke to on the phone?

My father

17. Hair colour?

Golden blond but admittedly I put highlights in once in a while

18. Eye colour

It depends on the light actually- blue/ green/ greyish with a bit of gold in sometimes

19. Favourite food to eat?

What a difficult question… I love food! I don’t know I just couldn’t pick one thing there are just too many things I love… sorry

20. Scary movies or happy endings?

I love scary movies with happy endings!

21. Last movie you watched?

Oceans 8- actually pretty good

22. Favourite Holiday?

I like every opportunity to celebrate and I guess I’ve picked up a real mix from different countries and cultures- any excuse to invite friends over, eat well and decorate at home!

23. Beer or wine?

Definitely wine. I haven’t had a beer in years

24. Favourite day of the week

By a mile… Fridays

25. Three favourite bloggers you want to learn about:


She seems like a lot of fun!

I hope she’d like to answer these questions unless she’s already done so!

Next up is:

Provincial Woman

I’d really like to know more about her!

And finally is…


I can see he’s a Londoner so curious to hear more from him (having spent many years there myself…)

I’d like to ask more people as well!

26. The added info you didn’t know you wanted

That I can be incredibly stubborn

Bonus question: who is your favourite super hero

Modesty Blaise- I hope a newer movie will be made about her soon!

  1. OK, here are my answers.
    1) I was invited to answer them by you.
    2) I am not named after anyone. I was born on 16th March, and had I lasted until the 17th, would have been called Patrick. πŸ™‚
    3) No. I hurt my wrist two years ago, and haven’t been able to write properly since.
    4) Ham.
    5) Number five is missing!
    6) My current one, my third marriage. 18 years together, 9 married.
    7) Never.
    8) Always.
    9) Also Pistachio.
    10) If a man, their height. (I am only 5′ 7″) If a woman, their legs. πŸ™‚
