The lovely Amanda at Homely-One tagged me yesterday to play a little game of Q&A that has been circulating around blogland... and then pass it on to some bloggers. So here goes:

1. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I spent my 30th birthday (um, a few years back) in a Tuscan farmhouse literally watching wine be crushed by hand beneath my bedroom window. I dream about retiring to my own Tuscan piece of paradise some day...

2. What is your favourite band?
U2. For sentimentality sake. And because I can't seem to part with my 1988 genuine 'Fly' glasses even though they'd fetch a pretty penny on Ebay these days...

3. If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be?
Bella from Twilight. Because if I were her, I'd want to be a vampire too...

4. Concert or Broadway show?
Love both. Um... I'm pretty jealous of my sisters both going to the upcoming Muse concert (without me!), though...

5. Theme song for your life?
Good lord -- Pass!

6. Fancy dinner at a nice restaurant or a picnic in the park?
Picnic in the park. I'm hopeless with food. I've been ordering the same lunch from the same cafe for near-on 10 years. The perfect picnic? A bit of homemade hummus on some fresh crusty ciabatta and freshly expressed coffee from the thermos. Yum.

7. Favourite place to shop?
The internet. 24/7 - need I say more?

8. Favourite movie?
'Jeux Enfants' - a french film (English title 'Love me if you dare'). One of those films that fills your thoughts long long after you've seen it. Near-on changed my life. And the boy is a total spunk. mmmmm yummy French actors
Right... Your go! I'd like to pass on the quiz to my gals at:

Spill your guts, gals!


  1. Thanks for playing along Nicole - I loved reading your answers and learning that little bit more about you. Tuscany sounds heavenly - what a wonderful way to spend your 30th!! I haven't seen that favourite movie of yours so will be sure to add that one to the list of ones to check out next time I'm at Blockbuster. Have a wonderful day xx

  2. i love your no. 3, and so jealous of your no. 1.

  3. I love your answers. :) Gotta catch that flick now! Sounds right up my alley. I will do this I promise, but probably not til the weekend. xoxoxo

  4. Oooh - they look like tricky questions! I'll have to think about them...

    I agree with your number 7... though 24/7 shopping is dangerous for my credit card balance!


Hello - oh write me a little note - do! do! Your comments really brighten my day and its nice to know Im not alone out there in cyber space ! x
