Paddy’s Bidding

I’ve taken up the challenge of another meme from Paddy Bloggit.  He was tagged by Ramana of Ramana’s Musings and he passed it on to his harem.
Steph has managed to complete her list, and I am sure that Baino will not be far behind.  As Queen of ‘the zippy- up yoke in the corner’, I had better get a move on.

  • What is your occupation? Trying to stay alive
  • What colour are your socks right now? Brown
  • What are you listening to right now? The hum of my hard drive
  • Can you drive a stick shift? I can shift a stick and I can drive! 😉  My manual gear car is my life-line.

  • Do you like the person who you stole this quiz from / tagged you? Yes, we have become firm friends in the last year and I’d love to meet him in person some day.
  • How old are you today? 61.  62 will arrive with the March hare.
  • Favourite drink? It varies with the time of day, boiled water for breakfast.  Green tea with mint to sip with my lunch, and fresh brewed black Coffee in the afternoon or to follow dinner. On the alcoholic side good wine, a G&T or a G&G and to treat a cough there is nothing better than a Hot Port with honey!  *cough, cough*
