24 facts you absolutely need to know…..

It’s a very hot and sultry day in Greece.  I’m supposed to be looking for a camera lead so I can transfer photos from my big digital camera to my iPad, but it’s disappeared.  So while I’m thinking where to look next, I had a quick glance at the blogging world and came across a great idea, where you are posed a number of personal questions which you have to answer.  A great idea for a blog post, until I think of something better!  So here’s my answers to the questions…..

Are you named after anyone?

I’m named after my paternal grandmother, Georgina.  I like to keep names in the family, so my eldest daughter’s middle name is that of her paternal grandmother, my younger daughter has the same middle name as me, and my son has a middle name belonging to his paternal grandad.

When was the last time you cried?

Yesterday, when my husband made a big decision, which was very difficult, and I didn’t want him to have made it just for me.


If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

God, no.  I’m not a nice person.  Very moody, intolerant of idiots, unsympathetic, secretive, I don’t like political correctness, I say what I think.  Who would want to be friends with me?

Do you use sarcasm a lot?

Me? Sarcastic?  Surely not!

What’s the first thing you notice about people?  

Whether they’ve got nicer hair than me.  They usually have.

What is your eye colour?


Scary movie or happy endings?

I haven’t watched many scary movies, as no one wants to watch with me.

Favourite smells?

Ground coffee.  Leather. Freshly washed bed linen.


What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?

From London to Brisbane.  Also London to Florida, and the Bahamas.

Do you have any special talents?

Sarcasm?  I also used to be quite a good swimmer.  And I have very acute hearing. 

Where were you born?

The Mediterranean island of Malta, as my father was stationed there in the RAF.  I’ve never been back.

What are your hobbies?

Blogging, cryptic crosswords, photography, needlework, sketching. Eating chocolate.

Do you have any pets?

No, but we used to have Artemis, the luckiest cat in Greece , our boat cat who lived aboard for two years, but has now been relocated to Essex.


What do you want to be when you grow up?

Hahaha!  Was this quiz written for kids?  When I’m grown up I’d like to be a racing driver, or have a regular column in a magazine.

Who was your first best friend?

Janet Purdy.  We went to school together from 10-14, and still keep in touch, she lives in Australia, but we’ve met up a couple of times.

How tall are you?

I used to be 5ft 9ins, but age has shrunk me slightly.

How many countries have you visited?

Too many to count.  I’ll just mention the 43 Greek Islands …….


What was your favourite/worst subject in High School?

High School?  We don’t call it high school, we call it secondary school.  I hated most sports.  I liked Art and Music.

What is your Favourite drink? 

When I’m on the boat in Greece, I drink a lot of Ouzo, with ice and water.


What Sports do you play/Have you played? 

Stop going on about sport!  I’m not sporty!  I play no sports.  I used to like tennis.

Who are some of your favourite YouTubers?

I have no idea what a You Tuber is. Please enlighten me.

How many Girlfriends/Boyfriends have you had?

Not telling.

Favourite memory from childhood?

Can’t remember.  

How would you describe your fashion sense?

I’m old.  I don’t have fashion sense.  I wear what I like and don’t care what anyone thinks.


Thank you to teleportingweena for this idea of the questions.  She got the idea from Andrea who got the idea from Random Writings on the Bathroom Wall.

Why don’t you join in? I’d love to know more about you!
