48 Questions...

I saw this over at Ali’s blog and thought it looked fun too – so I shamelessly nicked it. :) If you fancy joining in too, why not answer the questions on your blog? And if you want, post me a link so I can read your answers too. :)

1. What time did you get up this morning? 8.15am – I’ve got a VERY IMPORTANT and EXCITING parcel arriving today so wanted to be up in good time!
2. How do you like your steak? Done. I never seem to get it right – I don’t like to see any pink bits but don’t like it cremated either. Which is probably why I prefer chicken.

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Hanna. And I still don’t quite understand it – so many plot-holes you could drive a bus thru them...
4. What is your favourite TV show? Strictly Come Dancing and Downton Abbey – hands down. But also love Lewis... Sunday nite curled up on the sofa with my fella watching re-runs on cable... OK, I’ll also admit to an unhealthy obsession to America’s Next Top Model!

5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Somewhere quiet and un-overlooked with a nice view – and my own driveway and garage.

6. What did you have for breakfast? Egg and mushroom omelette wrap.

7. What is your favourite food? Chinese or Italian.

8. Foods you dislike? Parsnips – they should be totally removed from the food chain. And creme caramel. Also large tomatoes, although cherry tomatoes are fine.

18. What is your favourite sport to watch? Wimbledon, Formula 1 and American Football - Go Seattle Seahawks!  (I got the chance to see them beat the Denver Broncos’ back in November 1999 at the old Seattle Kingdome, just before they pulled it down to rebuild it)

19. What is your favourite fragrance? I don’t wear perfume, makes me sneeze. But I do love the smell of Dewberry.

31. Been in a car accident? Two – one as a front seat passenger - not wearing a seatbelt and almost went thru the windscreen, luckily the car was so old my head pushed the windscreen out in one piece and I just hit the rear-view mirror – I still have the scars and that was back in 1981. The other was in 1995, I was driving and someone overtook coming from the opposite way and went into my car head-on and wrote it off – I got away with whiplash and bruising and severe shock.

32. Any pet peeves? Young children out late at night walking down my road swearing their heads off – what are their parents thinking?
33. Favourite pizza toppings? Anything meaty but not too spicy – no anchovies or olives tho!
