If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?
I would definitely have fruit – of any kind. I enjoy sweet-tasting mango that has been ripened in the sun. A bowl of berries is, for me, the best tasting breakfast or dessert. Biting into a fresh apple is a treat, and eating segments of oranges slake my thirst. I would never be able to go on a diet that excludes fruit.
List at least five movies or books that cheer you up.
Films that give me that feel-good feeling are those that make me smile and have a wonderfully predictable ending. A few that I can think of are Shall We Dance, Strictly Ballroom (though I have not been able to get a copy here in Toronto), Pride and Prejudice, Pretty Woman and Notting Hill.
Books that make me smile are written by women for the women’s fiction genre. Books by Carole Mathews (The Chocolate Lovers’ Club), Marian Keyes (The Break), Sophie Kinsella (Confessions of a Shopaholic), Emily Giffen (Something Borrowed), and Jilly Cooper(Wicked!) are just some of the authors that I turn to when I need some cheering up or if I feel in a slump.
If you were a mouse in your house in the evening, what would you see your family doing?
Dinner time sees all of us at the table eating together. While eating we share our stories. After dinner is when we separate: My children go and do their homework, my husband either works or watches Netflix on his computer screen, and I watch Netflix or read for half an hour while drinking my tea. Between 9 – 9:30 pm the light in my bedroom is switched off. The other members of the household go to bed MUCH later.
What would you answer to any of these questions?
