Twenty Question Tuesday

In your eyes, what’s Paradise?
Being at an Antique market with loads of lovely things and only me and hubby there – buying everything.

Prized Possession
Our vintage 1952 Holivan ~ Oh! and of course, my lovely family :o)

Favourite medium to work with and why?
My computer…I love making graphics.

Flowers or chocolate?
I want to give up chocolate and I couldn’t imagine a world without flowers…so it will have to be flowers.

Who influenced you the most?
My Mum and my Nan…my mum has always been a strong woman, as she has been disabled all her life, but as a child I never noticed…and my Nan…we all used to have a right old laugh with her…she was a lovely character.

Who would you most like to go to Dinner with?
Queen Elizabeth II, I would love to find out all the juicy gossip :o) and I bet she has some tales to tell too!

Top Cat or Banana Splits?
¯One banana, two banana, three banana, four! Four bananas make a bunch, and so do many more! Over hill and highway the Banana Buggies go, Coming on to bring you the Banana Splits show!¯
Banana Splits….I loved watching The Arabian Nights during that show…fabulous! Besides I am allergic to cats!

Today I wore:
Wide legged jeans, stripey blue and white top, red scarf tied at the neck, converse trainers and a BIG Quiff!

Do you have a favourite online {bead, craft or textile} place to shop and would recommend….
There’s a little shop in Rochester High Street called HOMETOWN I love it in there….it’s a quilting shop that sells lots of homemade and crafty bits too.

What inspired you to do what you do?
Boredom – I hate being bored! Oh and my Nanny Hilda.

McDreamy or McSteamy?
Definitely McDreamy...tall dark and handsome has always been a weakness for me :o)

If you could do anything else, what would it be?
Either a DJ or an Archaeologist.

Favourite item of clothing
Is my scarf collection.

Best childhood memory
Nan, not being able to get her other leg in the car…up a mountain road in Wales…..we all got in, Dad started the engine and we started to roll backwards! Yikes! Nan couldn’t get her other leg in and we were all crying and laughing at the same time…it was scary, but really funny! I will never forget that!

Most cringe-worthy moment
OMG! I thought I would never have to reveal this, but back when we were looking for Grammar Schools for our son Daz, about 10 years ago now! We were driving home from another open evening when we saw another school, also a favourite, was having an open evening too! We quickly swerved in and was told to hurry into the schools hall, as they were nearly starting the proceedings….when we arrived, the only seats that were available were right at the front, as we walked to the remaining seats, me with a huge fur coat and high heel boots (making a clippity clop sound) and Rosie dressed as snow white! We could see everyone was looking in our direction, no one else had children with them and they were all in smart clothing and black suits!

The headmistress came out and started talking about the school and its achievements over the years and the usual paraphernalia….and then she announced that everyone by now should have been given this booklet….and suddenly the penny dropped!…Freddy and I looked at each other and we realised that we were at parents evening for the boys that had already started at the school! Eek! Quick! Beam me up Scottie! LOL!

Favourite holiday destination
Moscow, we visited Moscow when they were still under communist rules…It was amazing and so different from our way of living! We walked along the river, and listened to the guide telling us the reasons that Tchaikovsky wrote Swan Lake and then we were whisked to the Bolshoi Ballet in the evening where the rich Russians of that time stood up and shouted Bravo! Bravo! We also had caviar in the interval….totally amazing!

Which celebrity would you have as your best friend and why
Miranda Hart…she and I are like two peas in a pod….Mad as a hatter! But funny with it! LOL!

Best “crafty” tip you can offer
Don’t rush, take your time….

What’s your Star sign?
Sagittarius….I am always running behind schedule! I think LATE is the word.

What would you most like to see happen next?
Ann and Anton winning Strictly Come Dancing…..they soooo make my Saturday night…lol!

Thanks Happy!! Loved your contribution to this week's questions....sadly it was the end of the road for Ann on Strictly....but am sure something will take it's place rather quickly!

Pop along to the Happy Loves Rosie blog for a very patriotic look at life....I love diving into this place....it fills my heart with smiles......


hello gorgeous xxx 


  1. I love the 20 question Tuesday - I look forward to it every week!

  2. Hello Gorgeous!! I have missed you SO very much, but I knew you'd understand why I had to take a bit of a break. A girl can only take so much.

    As for this post, you absolutely crack me up! First, what in the heck is a Top Cat?? I know what a Banana Split is so I'm assuming it has something to do with ice cream..maybe??

    A quiff?? Never heard of such a thing.

    The story about the school was hilarious and totally sounds like something I would do!

    So, do you call the thing you push around the grocery store a cart or a buggy? We call it a buggy in Alabama. :)

  3. thanks hun for featuring me...you Rock! xx


I LOVE receiving comments, they make me smile....so, don't be shy ;o) xx
