'Revenge is Sweet' is what Chris at Home Thoughts Weekly said to me:
What are your current obsessions?
Making ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), little pieces of artwork to be swapped with other ATC makers. It's such fun. Let me know if you'd like any more details..
Here's one of my ATCs - this one went to soulbrush, they're only the size of a playing card.
What are you listening to?
The tinnitus in my ears or
Will Young's 'Let it Go' or Lyric FM Radio, a mix of classical and Irish music.
Which item from your wardrobe do you wear most often?
Oh this is a dreadful question for me. The clothes I wear most often are in a drawer. As I'm mostly working in the garden, a disgusting old pair of washed out navy blue jogger bottoms with patches and darns on the knees. Sexy, eh?
What are you reading?
I have just started 'The Bone Garden' by Tess Gerritsen. We're into the realms of skeletons in the garden then back to the 1830s and the gruesome job of the grave robbers - for medical research. It promises to be a good read.
What’s for lunch?
We don't really do lunch. Breakfast is usually our lunch, a bowl of assorted cereals with a cup of tea. A tea or coffee later in the afternoon followed in the evening by dinner.
What makes you helpless with laughter?
Oh, that's a hard one. Usually pretty silly things. My husband and I (I sound like the queen) sometimes fall about over the most ridiculous things. As for comedians, I loved Tommy Cooper and the slapstick sketch of him in a leaking, rocking submarine has me crying with laughter.
What was the last thing you bought?
When I visited the UK recently my daughter in law dropped me off at a fantastic material shop in Bury St Edmunds. I bought ribbons, butterflies, cord, bias binding, cotton, some gorgeous rainbow material, a 'Kitty' button, etc, etc, etc.
Favourite plant of the moment?
Oh now that really is impossible. I love all the plants in my garden. OK, Alchemilla Mollis. I just love it, green leaves, green flowers and the raindrops resting in the leaves look magical. Oh, and my Judas Tree, which managed to produce some flowers this year for the first time but the cold snap has removed most of them. Top marks for trying though.

Chocolate. Oh, and chocolate. And maybe a bit of chocolate. And the odd Magnum ice cream.
If you were a dog, which one would you be?
I'd be a large black standard poodle. Intelligent, good looking and with black curly hair!
Sum yourself up in a sentence
Great sense of humour, would be artist, photographer, critical of myself, deaf and sometimes depressed.
What's Your Best Time of the Day?
Mine is the afternoon/evening/night. I'm a bit of a night owl. Well, it's 3.40am now so that's a bit of a give away!
Respond and rework. Answer questions on your own blog. Replace one question. Add one question. Tag some people.
Right, now then, who can I tag??
soulbrush, because she always tags me,
Mildred from Nalley Valley
A Gardener in Progress and of course anyone else who'd like to join in. Go on, it's fun!
