I am a Gemini, and yes, I do relate very much so. Fickle, non-committal and an airy fairy dreamer.
What is the last thing you bought?
These yellow sandals, even though we have had NO summer at all. I live in hope...
I had bought the orange ones a while back, triple xxx comfort zone, I went back for the yellows. Don’t judge me
What do you think about the person who tagged you?
Valentine is a lush addition to the blog world, I read her wistful words often, I have an inkling she is one of the good guys.
What's for dinner?
Roast leg of lamb stuffed with garlic cloves and rosemary, roast potatoes, carrots, courgettes and peas. Oh, Yorkshire puddings as well, any excuse to cook those bad boys up, and I’m on it. Normally people eat them with roast beef, but I rarely cook that, so I did them with the lamb.
Sometimes I cook a massive Yorkshire pudding and fill it with roast veg. Apple pie and ice cream for pudding. Traditional Sunday fare.
What's your favourite decade, fashion wise?
Erm, that is a tough choice, I will have to cheat on this one I reckon. Stanley Kubrik for the late 60’s.
Ossie Clarke for the 70’s,
art deco for the 20’s
and Joan Crawford for the 40’s.
I am also strongly influenced by Sci-Fi books anf films when it comes to my party clothes
What are your must-have's for summer?
A tan, strawberry Daiquiris,
early night time walks to the beach
that result in rock pool swimming
and decent raves with lush music
Oh, and sunshine. That would be a bonus.
Really long family holidays to places like Japan, South America, Finland and Australia.
My Ossie Clarke dress, and a man’s short kimono
Doing a Midwifery course, then a masters. I would then like to travel the world, practicing midwifery, and writing books about what I have learnt and my daily experiences
What is your favourite magazine?
I gave up magazines a while ago. I was splashing the cash on things that made me feel lustful and jealous.
I would have to say, nowadays, the best magazine for me is New Scientist or Private Eye. I used to read a whole load of crap as well, like Grazia and Vogue.
Describe your personal style?
Colourful, vintage and multi-textured when at work or playing, mummy uniform when clocked on at home.
Which Beatle is your favorite?
I do not have one *hears collective gasp of all reading* I am not a Beatles fan. I respect them, but I do not admire or enjoy them on a personal level. My old boys band would have to be Return To Forever, and if I had to choose a favourite, it would be a tough call between Stanley Clark and Al Di Meola
What are you proud of?
My ability to dust myself off and get up, my children and husband, the years I have dedicated to reading, and tuning into the Braindance Coincidence
And my secret crumble mixture deserves a mention
I think the gist of this is that you tag others, So I am tagging:
