10 questions

OK these are 10 questions posed by Melissa at Things I'd Tell You 
As I'm at home with a sick family and have a bit of time on my hands I decided to participate.
So here goes:

1. What was your favourite subject at school? History
2. Did you have a favourite teacher? What was it about them that you liked? My year 8, 9 & 10 science teacher. He had a very dry wit and for some reason he liked me. He gave me the only award I received in high school just cause he thought I was a nice person, not for actually achieving anything.
3. What do you like most about yourself? My uncanny resemblance to Angelina Jolie.
4. Why did you start blogging? To get my brain around writing again after having kids. 
5. Can you show us your 5 favourite blog posts? Kids' music; Deserting dessert; Cafe au shame; Man Cold (below) & One of those days
6. What do you love most about your partner? His uncanny resemblance to Brad Pitt
7. Next to your husband/partner/significant other/children, who do you speak to most often? My mum
8. What are your 5 favourite books? 1984, George Orwell (the only time I have physically jumped with shock while reading a book); A Fortunate Life, AB Facey; Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Roald Dahl; Five People You Meet in Heaven, Mitch Albom; The Picture of Dorian Grey, Oscar Wilde. Though for a good, sit down and escape, head-in-a-book page turner you can't go past a Robert Goddard or Douglas Kennedy novel. This was such a hard question, I really needed to pick 10 as I left our some corkers...
9. Do you have a favourite work of art? Starry Night, Vincent Van Gough 
10.If you could live for a year anywhere in the world, where would you choose? Can I pick two?? I'd choose Paris (as it's my dream destination) or Hong Kong (as I love Yum Cha, BBQ Pork and the hustle and bustle). 

Feel free to answer these and then let me know so I can check them out!


  1. I did this too, except mine turned into a frickin' essay! Will post it later today.

    Oh and gee, I thought me and the hubs were the only Brangelina lookalikes out there bahahaha.

  2. Starry night is my favourite too.

    I love "The Five People You Meet In Heaven".

    I laughed out loud at the "Goodbye song" story.

  3. I'll have to get myself to the second hand bookstore and read some of your favourite books...a few there that I haven't read. You are right, you and Clint do look incredibly like Brad and Angelina.


Thank you so much for your comments! I'm always thrilled to hear from you.
