January 4, 2008


When was the last time you received a surprise in the mail, and what was it?

A Winter home in any warm country would be nice

What is your favorite carnival/amusement park ride?

When I was younger, The Umbrellas was the only ride I enjoyed. Nowadays, you’d be lucky to find me riding in a Teacup with the children 

How do you react in uncomfortable social situations?

I don’t come across many, although when I was in England in the Summer, I had to take Spud to Casualty with a possible broken finger. While we were waiting, a man pulled down his trousers in front of eveyone in the waiting room. Shortly after that a man was brought in wearing handcuffs and then two drunken men staggered in drinking beer. One had a black eye. I was shaking like a leaf. Petrified. I had all four children with me and Chef was in Ireland!

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy discussing deep, philosophical topics?

 6 ~ I’m recently beginning to wonder whether God really exists (in a positive way) I’d love a chat to someone about Him, not too heavy, though! Maybe I need Him back in my life? Anyone?

Main Course
Did you get a flu shot this year? If not, do you plan to?

 No, and I’m suffering with a heavy cold and sore throat right now

Approximately how many hours per week do you spend watching television?

 I watch snippets of ‘I’m a Celebrity’ and back-to-back cookery programmes. on UKTV Food. Rick Stein, Barefoot Contessa, Market Kitchen etc. while I do the ironing. It’s the only way to get through it!

Have great weekend…

If you were a dog, what breed would you be, and why?

I’d be a Red Setter. (They’re lively and frisky, aren’t they?)


What does the color purple make you think of?

Whoopi Godberg and Cadburys chocolate wrappers

Approximately how long does it take you to get ready each morning?

Half an hour if I shower, 15 mins if I don’t

Main Course
How many cousins do you have, and are you close to them?

I have a lot of cousins, but I’m only close to one. He’s so much like my brothers!

Take your initials (first, middle, last) and come up with something else those letters could stand for. (Example: SFO = Sweet Funny Otter)

 I don’t have a middle name, so I’ll use my confirmation name

Chocolate And Beer !

Don’t forget to call into these Feasting Beasts before you log off!

How are you today?

I’m very well, thankyou!

Name 3 television shows you watch on a regular basis.

I don’t watch any regular TV  although I do enjoy The Barefoot Contessa, Masterchef Goes Large and Homes Under The Hammer.  I wouldn’t watch them every day.

What’s the scariest weather situation you’ve experienced?

Oh my God! I was petrified when we went to Blizzard Beach, Florida in June. The rain was so heavy and the lightening was so close. I met a lady called Jessie who calmed us all down (apart from Chef who thought the whole thing was hilarious)  The girls were hysterical and Spud kept his head under my armpit for a whole hour not daring to look.

Main Course
If you could wake up tomorrow morning in another country, where would you want to be?

England, in my best friends bed (if her husband is still away….or not, maybe) It would be so funny to see her face when she wakes up! She would do that pig-snorting thing she does whenever I make her laugh.

What do you usually wear to sleep?

I wear different things depending on Chefs mood…   I like to wear my floral fleecy Dunnes Stores pyjama bottoms with a secret support top for one week a month. The rest of the month I wear little nighties.
