A. Age: 40. I'll be 41 in May
B. Bed Size: King. I love it.
C. Chore you dislike: Cleaning the shower. I don't mind cleaning the toilets but I hate the shower and the glass door. It's actually hubby's job to clean the shower. Ask how well that goes? Or how often? Good thing the health department doesn't check it.
D. Dogs: We don't have any. I would love to have a dog. When I was growing up we had three. Miffy, Miffy and Missy. Now we dog sit Noki a couple of times a year, she's here this week. And occasionally Sassy comes to stay.
E. Essential start to your day: breakfast and washing my face.
F. Favorite color: Blue. Navy blue. But also pink, red, other shades of blue, yellow, various shades of green and this week orange.
G. Gold or silver: Silver, white gold and rose gold. Not particularly yellow gold. Although I have two gold necklaces that I love. I'm learning to like it more and more.
H. Height: 5'4. Not quite short enough to be considered petite but short enough that pants or jeans are always too long.
I. Instruments you play(ed): recorder and guitar in primary school. Trumpet in the first term of my first year at high school before switching to the flute. I played the flute for 4 years of high school and then had private lessons for 2 years after that. I still have my flute. I haven't played it in 10 years.
J. Job title: since I started working my paid job titles have included baby sitter, waitress, food and beverage attendant, lifeguard, waterfront director, program assistant, English teacher, front desk agent, front desk clerk, guest services agent, guest services representative, night auditor, assistant night manager, night manager, night duty manager, reception training manager, cashier, cash coordinator, customer service agent, customer service representative, retail coordinator, retail venue manager, and retail sales specialist. I can't remember what my title was when I work at Kentucky Fried Chicken. I volunteered at the Red Cross and the local mothercare home for a year.
K. Kids: I would love to have a child/children. Hubby doesn't want any.
L. Lived/Live: England, Japan, Mexico, Canada and Australia.
M. Mother: I have one. For the longest time I wanted to be a teacher just like her. I've always looked up to her, still do. I get my love of reading from my mum and my nan. I miss them (and my dad) terribly. I think of them every day.
N. Nicknames: I don't really have any
O. Overnight hospital stays: Lots. I had my tonsils removed when I was kid (that was about a week), three surgeries on my knee (three nights each time), my appendix removed (three nights), several overnight stays for asthma attacks. I think that's it. I also had my gallbladder removed and some cysts removed but they were all done as day surgeries.
P. Pet peeves: people who stop walking in the middle of the footpath and block the whole path so you can't walk round them.
Q. Quote from a movie: That's going straight to the pool room.
R. Righty or lefty: Righty.
S. Siblings: one little brother. Who's about a foot taller than I am. And not so little. He's 3 years younger than me.
T. Time you wake up: 530am when we have bootcamp. 800am on weekends. Once my new job starts I'll have to wake up between 300am and 400am depending on the departure city. But naturally? I'm a night owl. In a perfect world I'd sleep to 1000am, go to bed around midnight and read until 200am.
U. Underwear: Yes. What type of question was that?
V. Vegetables you don't like: I can't think of any, I'm sure there are some I don't like.
W. What makes you run late: Normally hubby. He either loses track of time at the hangar or under estimates the time it will take us to drive some where. He can predict to the minute how long it will take to fly somewhere. But driving? He's way off.
X. X-rays you've had: what haven't I had x-rayed? ... my right foot, both ankles (more than once), both shins, my right knee (multiple times), both wrists, my ribs, my lungs, my lower back and pelvis, my boobs (last week), my right shoulder and lastly my teeth (once a year). I've also had several abdominal scans, ultrasounds, and one cat scan. And don't forget the barium enema. I can safely say that was the worst form of x-ray I've ever had.
Y. Yummy food you make: chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter bars, rum cake, mars bar slice
Z. Zoo Animal Favourites: wombats, echidnas, penguins, polar bears. Definitely not emus.
