What is your choice of puzzle – jigsaw, crossword, wordsearch, mazes, logic or numeric puzzles, something else, or nothing?
I used to try to do the three sudoku puzzles printed in the Metro (daily free newpaper given out at London tube stations) on my half-hour-or-so-each-way commute to and from work – they were labelled ‘easy’, ‘moderate’ and ‘difficult’. I usually (but not always) managed the easy one, generally struggled partially through the moderate one, and rarely even got started on the difficult one. However once (and only once, it was never to be repeated) I actually managed to complete all three in the one day – result!
List at least five favourite treats (and it doesn’t have to be food)?
A long, uninterrupted soak in a hot bath – long ago, as a young mum of three children born with 12 months between the first two and 15 months between the second and third, the peace and quiet of relaxing in the bath in the evening after they were all tucked up in bed soon became an absolute luxury I’ve never lost the feeling for.
Spending time with my much-loved children and grandchildren, who at the moment I’m unable to see as often as I would like ❤
Expensive perfume – not because it’s expensive, but just because those particular perfume scents I seem to prefer tend to be expensive.
Good quality milk chocolate, creamy and smooth and melt-in-the-mouth… mmmmm…!
Having books to read to feed my curiosity and imagination – whether fiction or non-fiction, words digested in silence and solitude have always opened up the world for me.
What is your favourite type of dog?
As a family we had two labradors while I was growing up, first a golden lab and then a black one, so I suppose I’ll always have a bit of a soft spot in my heart for that particular breed.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this week?
Seeing a grainy grey ultrasound scan image of grandbaby number six, who is due to be born early in the new year… 🙂
