Dinnertime! Updated!

May 5, 2006

From which country(s) are some (or all) of your ancestors?

We are all from England. Which is rather dull as we all still live here. Not very adventureous my ancestors. More of the stay at home types!

How would you describe your sneeze?

Sudden! Loud!

My step dad’s sneeze sounds just like a dog barking and if you time it right you can get a “Who let the dogs out…….” just before he sneezes – and it sounds perfect!

What is the last thing you cleaned?

Myself in the shower this morning!

Other than that I did the dishes after dinner last night and a load of washing.

Main Course
Who made the strongest first impression on you?

I have no idea. I have been trying to answer this all morning with no luck whatsoever. I do know that my first impressions tend to be quite correct although I am happy to change my opinion of someone if the evidence is there!


Dragonfly’s answer to this question bought back a memory for me.

When I was 6 my family moved 20 miles from Penzance to Redruth. Which meant that I had to start a new school. When I started they sat me next to a girl called Katie who would look after me. I don’t remember much else of that week but I do remember being happy to go back the following Monday. I sat in my little seat in Mrs Munday’s class and suddenly ‘whack’ – I was suddenly on the floor. I looked up to see a small girl with a mass of black curls around her face scowling at me with determination.

“That is my seat”.

Her name was Zoe and she had been to Venice on holiday which was why she was not there for the first week of term. In the end we shared her seat and from that day forward she was my best friend and we were completely inspererable for the next 10 years.

So I am not sure whether it was the girl or the floor that made the impression on me but it a wonderful memory to have back.

Name one thing you want to accomplish in your lifetime.

To be a Mum. To love and to be loved and to help a child make their way in life. To hopefully share the same relationship as I do with my Mum. To give her a grandchild – oh my she would be so happy. As would my Dad but I know my Mum is reserving a special place in her heart for the children of myself and my brother and I just want to be able to help her share the love that she has saved up. If I am half the Mum she is I will be happy.

    I hope you accomplish what you want to. That sounds like a great goal to have.
