Thank you Brenda for your lovely comments. I am very fortunate that most of my life I was fit and relatively healthy its only the last ten years that my health has increasingly deteriorated. The last five years being the worst. Its not always easy to keep positive but I only have two choices. Give in and dive into the depths of despair or try and find something positive to cling onto and do the best that I can.
Question 1. Favourite Stephen King book and why? - That's difficult because they are all excellent books for different reasons. I suppose the one that sticks out most in my mind was Needful things. The idea that you could buy something from what appeared to be a second hand shop and it turn you into a murderer or make you do evil deeds was very scary considering my love for browsing second hand or antique shops :) I love that there are so many interesting things to see that you never see in normal shops and imagining the stories behind them.
Question 2. What is your favourite colour? - I love really bright colours and that varies on how I feel on any particular day but I guess bold pink
Question 3. a) What places have you travelled to.... I spent a lot of my adult life travelling whether socially or for business so it's hard to list all of the places I have visited. Here are a few that have special memories. Greece, Germany, France, Belgium, Czech Republic, Romania, Turkey, Tunisia, Holland, Atlas Mountains, Sahara Desert, Philippines (Dumaguete, Bohol, Cebu, Manila) Spain, several states in America, several states in Canada, Caribbean islands, Dubai, Singapore, Africa, Vietnam, Mexico and Ireland.
Question 3. b) What is your favourite place? Each of the above have a soft spot in my heart for one reason or another which is why they stick in my mind. So many interesting people and so many interesting experiences. As a huge romantic I guess I should pick Las Vegas but not for conventional reasons. My fiancé and I were both ill (I nearly lost him three months before we actually got married) We wanted to get married in a church but our wedding list was at 80 people and growing. There was no way we going to be able to cope with such an event. So we decided instead to go to Las Vegas and have a webcam wedding (the only place at the time that did them) just the two of us with everyone invited to log into the sit down ceremony. It was the most beautiful romantic day with the added bonus that it was shared with but completely cost free for all of our friends and family across the globe.
Question 4. a)If you could be any type of animal what would it be? From a practical standpoint this is tough because animals are so abused by humans its tough to imagine which one would be a safe choice but if that wasn't a factor. I would love to be a wild horse running at will through the wilderness shaking my mane in the wind.
Question 4. b) and Why? Because before I had my mobility issues I was always running around up and down stairs and around the fields with my dog and even as a child I used to love the wind blowing through my hair. Horses always look so happy when they are galloping freely around the fields. So I imagine how much happier they would be with a group of their friends running wild and free, nibbling grass or the odd piece of fruit on the ground. Gazing at the stars drinking fresh stream water with no worries or concerns.
