Last week a number of bloggers read my Share Your World post so I thought I would participate again. One of the questions that Cee asked last week was: Did you have a stuffed animal when you were a kid, if so what kind? Thinking back on my childhood, there was no stuffed animal that came to mind. I did not think I walked around with a favourite – but I could be wrong. It was in my mind to check with my mom, but I knew that I may forget to ask her. My mom reads my blog to keep up to date with what I am doing and she kindly answered my question for me on my Facebook page:
I have always been a reader – and it seems like I was one even before I can remember 🙂
Now for the questions that Cee has asked this week:
How do you like your eggs?
I enjoy eating eggs and how I eat them depends on my mood. I enjoy a well-cooked fried egg (runny yolk, but everything else must be cooked), soft scrambled eggs, and hard boiled egg on freshly made toast. Yum! I have eaten poached egg once or twice and have enjoyed the experience. I haven’t tried making it though. Omelettes are a perfect meal for lunch or supper. In the centre I put cheeses and finely chopped onion and tomatoes. Delicious!
Have you ever met anyone famous?
It depends on what your definition of ‘met’ is. I have shaken the hand and greeted some well-known people, for example: Cynthia Ball, a well-known South African painter of watercolour (I have one of her paintings hanging on my wall); and Marion Keyes at her book signing for The Break (of course I have a signed copy of the book).
What was the first thing you bought with your own money?
When I was a teenager, I loved buying records (yes, LPs) of my favourite musicians with my pocket money and birthday money. I remember it used to annoy my mom, but I loved listening to music on my record player. And what else would I spend my money on? Books? I am not too sure spending money on my library would have been any better. 🙂
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?
This past weekend was a long weekend. Monday was a day which the government created to give families a chance to spend time together during the never-ending cold of winter. I appreciated this weekend as it gave my family an opportunity to spend more time together. We ate a meal together on Saturday to celebrate Chinese New Year; and then we went out for a meal on Sunday to celebrate our son’s birthday at a restaurant my husband and I had not yet been to. The food was delicious, and the atmosphere vibrant.
What would you answer to any of these questions?
