Have seen this everywhere and like it – so here’s mine. Feel free to cut and paste and join in!
A~Age: 39. 40 this year and looking forward to it – things keep getting better.
B~ Bed Size: Superking – it’s lovely.
C~Chore you hate: ironing and putting laundry away. It’s a Sisyphean task. I always give up halfway and everyone ends up dressing out of the laundry basket.
D~Dogs: Two. Frank and Alfie – 2 Jack Russells. They’ve been dognapped by my FIL though who feeds them roast chicken and soaked liver (yuck) so they just come to see me to pee against the furniture. Hmm. I prefer my cat, Pippi.
E~Essential Start your Day Item: Cup of Earl Grey first, then lots of coffee.
F~Favorite Color: purple
G~Gold or Silver: hmmm. both.
H~Height: 5’4″ – I suspect I might be the shortest Dutch person you’ve ever heard of. The runt of the Dutch litter. It’s much more comfortable in the UK.
I~Instruments you play: used to play the piano.
J~Job Title: web designer – jack of all trades, master of none.
K~Kids: 2 – 10 year old Sophia and 8 year old Felix. Lights of my life.
L~Live: Lincolnshire. I’ve lived all over the world and never thought I’d end up living on a farm in rural England. I’ve now lived here longer than anywhere else and it’s home. I like it. I’m free here.
M~Mom’s name: Janny – pronounced Yanni (yes).
N~Nicknames: Peet, petch, molly, booshka.
O~Overnight Hospital Stays
: 2 when I was a teen for various surgeries on my nasal cavities (hmm) and 2 to have my kids.
P~Pet Peeve: Where do I start? People who say “I was sat” instead of “I was sitting” or even worse “I were sat”. Facial hair with food in it. People with chips on shoulder – it’s just boring. Self-pity in myself and others. The crappy food you get served at big functions. Just give me an apple.
Q~Quote from a Movie
: I don’t remember these very well – I love Pulp Fiction
though and all I can think is “Zed’s dead. Zed’s dead baby.”
R~Right or Left Handed: Left. Have figured out how to use my right hand as well though – ambidextrous!
S~Siblings: One, younger brother Erik.
T~Time you wake up: 6am.
U~Underwear: Hate thongs for what they do for you when you have to suddenly brake in a car. Also for how I look in them. I like boring bikini pants – spend nothing on underwear really..
V~Vegetable you Dislike
W~What Makes You Late: fooling around on the internet.
X~X-rays You’ve had Done:none
Y~Yummy Food you Make: banana maple pecan cake, quinoa salad, lemon chicken, spaghetti with meatballs – bring it on!
Z~Zoo Animal Favorite: penguins.
