I'm back

Apologies for being absent for the month of August; I decided to take a  'vacation' like the French do. I am back now and am being broken in gently as I have been asked by Mac n’ Janet to do the following questionnaire  (she very kindly nominated me for a Sunshine Award).  If anyone else wants to have a go please do. 

What is your favourite colour?
It is hard to choose. I wear a lot of blue, I love purpley shades too. I like pink as well and adore grey. Let’s just say I avoid yellow and don’t do green much or black and I hate brown and detest beige.

Favourite non-alcoholic drink?

No contest there as I have a current craze for chocolate flavour Friji (a milk shake -  in case you don’t know what it is).

Favourite animal?
Another hard choice as I love all animals.  Dogs, cats and donkeys are my top three.  I could not be without a dog and a cat for company.

Twitter or Facebook.
I  really hate Facebook  - I hate the way everyone is addicted to it and  everyone can read everything and can ‘spy’ on people.  I don’t use Twitter but  I need to look again at Twitter because I might like it but  have forgotten  how it works. Can anyone convert me to it I wonder and/or explain how it works? 

Hard to choose one (she says again).
At the moment I am into photography and genealogy takes a lot of my time. Books of course have been a lifelong passion.   I could not live without music either.  I love to write and am a fair weather gardener.

Favourite pattern?
I love the herring bone pattern like you see in  tweeds .............and cobbles (I took some photos recently of the latter).  I love gingham too.

Giving or receiving?
Well I suppose everyone will say this but there is a real buzz in giving isn’t there?

Favourite number?
Something is telling me to say seven.

Favourite day?

No contest. Sunday!

That’s all for now then, thank you if you have got this far.

I hope to blog again tomorrow as I have some scrumptious books to recommend.  I am off to read lots of blogs now!

Enjoy the Full Moon tomorrow.

Bye for now,
Go mbeannai Dia duit.
