The lovely Sadje who resides over here has tagged me in a challenge which involves answering some probing questions. I presume that my answers have to be honest so this could be a tricky one but I’m not going to back down from a good old fashioned challenge so here goes:
1. Name a moment in your life when you felt you were most courageous.
I was going to say carrying on living without my husband or moving to the South of France but I never actually felt courageous during those times. I didn’t take my own life when I desperately wanted to because I couldn’t bear to hurt those who love me and I moved to France because I knew I wouldn’t really live again unless I made a big change but I didn’t feel courageous in either case. OK, I’ve had a cup of tea and given it some thought and I think I felt courageous when I walked across burning coals during a Tony Robbins seminar.
2. If you had to choose only one breakfast cereal for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
I have porridge with almond puree for breakfast every morning so I guess I’d stick with that. Oddly I don’t really like porridge but I work out a lot so I eat it; just as well I don’t have a massive interest in food!
3. When have you felt the most scared?
The day I found out that my husband’s cancer was terminal
4. If you could sing like any musical artist, who would you choose?
Lara Fabian, her voice is absolutely magnificent. For those of you who don’t know her, here’s a video for you:
5. Do you collect anything?
Do shoes count?
6. If you could live inside a tv show or movie, what would it be?
Boston Legal without a doubt (yes I still have a crush on Alan Shore)
7. Have you ever had a reoccurring dream? If so, what was it?
A dream? No. A nightmare? Yes, two in fact. In one I was standing on top of a tiny platform hundreds of feet in the air and in the other I was being strangled. If any of you know how to interpret dreams…..actually no forget it, I don’t want to know.
8. What’s your Zodiac sign?
Taurus the bull which is pretty much the most boring sign in the Zodiac; apparently we are: dependable, generous, down to earth, patient, independent, stubborn, self-indulgent, lazy, possessive and frugal (which doesn’t make a lot of sense if I am also supposed to be generous). I don’t have a lot of faith in astrology but I am actually all of these things except patient and frugal so perhaps there’s something in it after all.
Right, I’ve thought long and hard about who will be the one person I’d like to tag and therefore know more about and I’ve narrowed it to about 25 so I am going to throw it open to anyone who wants to take part ;O)
