She has such a lovely blog, and does such beautiful embroidery - how could I refuse?
So here goes:
The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.[I am not going to do this - nay volunteers?] Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.
1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
It's hard to remember that far back! Teaching - I was still newish to the job [special needs in a VIth form college] and it was still scary / exciting. And worrying about whether Cheese Minor would get into the university of his choice.[He did.]
2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today?
Apart from answering these questions -
Make sample leaves for my new 3D piece;
Go to the gym;
Paint some papers for design work;
Put the postcards I bought at the exhibition we went to yesterday into my 'Exhibitions I have been to' scrapbook for C&G.
All achieved apart from No. 3
3) Snacks I enjoy.
Bread and butter. Sandwiches. Toast. [A bread-maker is a dangerous thing.]
4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire.
Mmm - a billionaire? I do periodically dream of winning £1,000,000 on my £10 worth of Premium Bonds [had them since 1969, never won anything]. I don't even know how many 0s there are in a billion.
Obviously, share some of it with the family and make sure we've got enough for a comfortable retirement. I like to think I'd give the rest to Oxfam but I suspect I'm not really that public spirited!
5) Places I have lived.
Stockport, Newcastle on Tyne, East Bergholt in Suffolk, Bangor, Leicester, Wigan, Leatherhead, Wonersh just outside Guildford., Washington [not the US one], East Bergholt again, and Hampshire. In the future, we hope, somewhere in Powys.
6) 6 people I want to know more about.
Not sure I understand the question. I am not very nosy about other people's private lives, if that's what it means. However there are lots of people I would love to spend a day in their studio with - too many to mention!
