A reader appreciation award

Time for another meme, this one passed onto yours truly from Steve at Father in Training who blogs about his thoughts and feelings about being a first time Dad.


What is your favourite colour?
I have had various different favourite colours but for a while now it has been red.  Not any red mind, the shade that post boxes are.  Strong, vibrant and a statement colour.

What is your favourite animal?
Orangutans.  They have such soulful eyes and one day I will see them wild in Borneo without doubt.

What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink?
I don't truthfully have a favourite drink.  My mum has always said I could be a camel due to my poor fluid intake.  The one and only drink I have every day without fail is my mug of tea first thing.  My mug holds the equivalent of two and a half cups and the day goes wrong if I don't have it.

Facebook or Twitter?
Facebook is full of friends I actually have in my life whereas Twitter is full of friends that I wish I really had.  Does that make sense?

What is your favourite pattern?
Polka dots!  I love polka dots.  I don't have many clothes with them on as I look awful in it but polka dots do it for me.

Favourite number?
Hmmm,  I don't have one.  I have a liking for the number 8 because it is meant to be lucky but wouldn't say it was a favourite number.  Pass.

Favourite day of the week?
Wednesday.  To me it is that point in the week where we head full steam towards the weekend.  Otherwise right now every day is more or less the same.

Favourite flower?
Pompom dahlias - I adore these.

What is your passion?
Family.  It is the one thing I would give my last breath for.
