Well, it's always nice to know a bit more about somebody, but I think my questions might have been so different (don't ask). Here's a personal one, if you like: your blogname; might I be right in thinking you originate from up this neck of the woods? My mother used it quite a lot but, then again, maybe it's universal.

SB no not from up your neck of the woods, but my mum lives in Spennymoor since she relocated from down south in the eighties. I was born in west London. Don't be coy - any other questions?

Gone with the Wind!! Girl - you won me over for sure with that of my all time favorites!!

softinthehead said...

Aims - yes it was on again this week and I can't pass it by, two minutes of watching and I'm sucked in. I think Scarlett is the ultimate anti-heroine, she's so bad and selfish, but you love her.

Mean Mom said...

Mmmm, bananas - my favourite, so is rhubarb pie. It's certainly not sad to favour Barbie doll. I still have one of mine! Swearing is a great release, but I still have to make sure that my mother is not around to overhear. She still doesn't realise that I know such words!

Always good to get to know people better. Enjoyed reading your answers!
I also like "Gone With The Wind".
You have lived in quite a few countries but have this longing for France?
