Where did this weekend’s weather come from?!

There I was last week, happily moaning about rain and wind – then it was fecking thermal-tights Baltic on Saturday and Sunday… how much longer have we got of this winter lark?

On the bright side though, literally, only just over a fortnight till the shortest day – and that’s got to mean summer’s on its way. Nearly.

On to happier things, thank you very much to the Healthy Epicurean, who nominated me for this:

I have to answer 11 questions, tell you 11 facts about me – and then nominate 11 people to do the same.

  • Spring or Fall? Spring (see above) ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Sweet or savoury? Sweet –ย see all the posts I’ve ever written
  • Black coffee or white? Almost black
  • Snow or sun? Sun, x millions!
  • One word to describe yourself? Me!
  • Romantic or comedy film? Comedy
  • Meat or vegetarian? I’m not a vegetarian but don’t eat much meat…
  • Are you a morning or an evening person? Evening
  • How many languages do you speak? French and German to GSCE, ie probably only “hello” and “is this the right train?” these days…
  • Which fictional character would you like to be? Harry Potter – imagine the petrol I’d save if I could disapparate…
  • Starter or dessert? Dessert, every time!

Random facts:

  • I’ve got absolutely HUGE hands.
  • I sleepwalk and talk loads.
  • My house is fairly tidy but my desk at work is always in a shocking state, ditto my car.
  • I used to play in a pub darts team – we came bottomย of the league two years running.
  • I get through seven or eight cups of tea or coffee just at work every day
  • When I learned to walk, I would only do it on concrete, having tantrums if I had to walk on grass.
  • I haven’t entirely mastered sending faxes yet.
  • I’m really claustrophobic, to the point I can’t sit by the window on planes or trains.
  • I had my first filling this year, without an anaesthetic as I couldn’t bear the thought of a needle in my mouth, even though I’m quite happy with needles for normal blood tests.
  • I hate it when people running their fingers down folded paper, it’s like nails down a blackboard *shudder*
  • I find it really hard to come up with random facts about myself ๐Ÿ™‚

I nominate:

And their questions:

  • What’s your best feature?
  • What’s your worst habit?
  • If you could spend a week anywhere on Earth, where would it be?
  • What superpower would you have, if you could have one?
  • If you had to give up either vegetables or chocolate, which would it be?
  • Book or television?
  • Winter or summer?
  • What would be your dream job?
  • If you won the lottery, what would you do first?
  • Clubbing or out for a meal?
  • And, most improtantly, caramel or chocolate??

The last one’s easy of course – both!

  1. Totally with you on Springtime. I’ve also become really claustrophobic in the last ten years or so; I absolutely cannot get into a lift anymore, which is good news for my legs muscles of course ๐Ÿ™‚

    • No, lifts aren’t good either; if the door doesn’t open as soon as they stop, I get really panicky! As you say though, looking on the bright side, it’s much better exercise ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh funnn! Never been tagged in one of these before. Couldn’t have come at a better time- so stuck for blog ideas at the mo! xxx

  3. Romantic or comedy film? Both!
    How many languages do you speak? English, German and learning Spanish. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great week!

  4. Thanks for the tag! I actually remembered to answer the questions this time!

    Ooh thanks for the tag, I love this sort of thing!
    That’s so interesting that you sleepwalk. I used to when I was little – even when I went on a school trip to Spain. I apparently had to be guided back to bed by a teacher, oh the embarrassment! But I don’t anymore (that I’m aware of).

  6. Yey! Thanks for the nomination I am looking forward to doing this! Talking of weather, it is crazy snowy up here, I’d like it if I didn’t have to drive in it!

  7. Thanks for the tag- this looks like fun! We has a rand spurt of snow up here, weird!

  8. That’s the thing with cold weather. It randomly warms up for a day, then boom! Coldness.

  9. This looks like fun! I’ll have a think about those answers!

  10. Eleanor!! Thank you So Much for the Liebster Award!! I’m so glad I was doing catching up on m blog reading or…Fun Questions…I’ll work on them this week. You’re so sweet!
