Q. What is your wallpaper on your computer?

A picture of Llyn Cynwch, the local lake where the town's water comes from. Also the abode of fairies, according to local folklore. Having fairies in your drinking water doesn't seem to harm the quality, if anything it's the nicest drinking water of anywhere I've ever lived.

Q. How many televisions you have in your house?


Q. Are you right-handed or left-handed?


Q. Have you ever had anything removed from your body?

A few teeth, the tonsils and... well, that would be TMI.

Q. What is the last heavy item you lifted?

The box containing the new crockery that was delivered to our neighbour's house because we were out.

Q. Have you ever been knocked out?

No. I have fainted four times though. Does that count?

Q. If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?

Probably best not to know.

Q. If you could change your name, what would you change it to?

I have changed it. I took my husband's surname when I married also I use my middle name online and socially. I still use my first name with family, old friends and at work though, which just occasionally causes confusion if/when the two groups overlap.

Q. What color do you think looks best on you?

I'm very fond of green, though I think certain shades of blue look quite good too.

Q. Have you ever swallowed a non-food item?

Only flies swallowed inadvertently. Or perhaps flies are food items? Chameleons would say so, certainly.

Q. Would you kiss a member of the same sex for £100?

I don't see why not.

Q. Would you allow one of your little fingers to be cut off for £200,000?

Most definitely not! I use both of them. I once broke my left hand little finger and it wasn't until I couldn't use it that I realised just how much I did use it.

Q. Would you never blog again for £50,000

No. Make it £250,000 and I'd reconsider.

Q. Would you pose naked in a magazine for £250,000?

I'd happily pose naked in a magazine for £100 plus expenses. Heck, I'd pose nude for nothing if the photographer was good and I could have copies of the pictures. I really can't see any magazine wanting me to pose though. :)

Q. Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for £1,000?

Not if I had to drink it at one sitting.

Q. Would you, without fear of punishment, take a human life for £1,000,000?


Q: What is in your left pocket?


Q: Is Napoleon Dynamite actually a good movie?

Have never heard of this before, let alone seen it.

Q: Do you have hardwood or carpet in your house?

Carpet and vinyl floor tiles.

Q: Do you sit or stand in the shower?

Stand. What would I sit on?

Q: How many pairs of flip flops do you own?


Q: Last person who texted you?

One of the offspring.

Q: Last person who called you?

One of the offspring.

Q: Person you hugged?

My husband. I'm not really into hugging work colleagues or random strangers and hugging students wouldn't be appropriate.

Q: Number?

Quite fond of 2 and 5.

Q: Season?


Q: Color?

Mossy or leafy greens.

Q: Missing someone?

The offpring.

Mostly content.

Birdsong and the distant drone of traffic on the bypass.

The monitor.

Black trousers, blue long sleeved t-shirt, brown hooded body warmer.

See my granddaughter again next weekend.
