Well someone at Vogue thought it would be a good idea to ask some celebs these 73 questions, https://video.vogue.com/series/73-questions and whilst I can’t aspire to the dizzy heights of celebdom, I was asked by http://www.suefoster.info to take part.
So grab a coffee and if you have the time and inclination, here are my answers!
1. What is your usual Starbuck’s order?
I don’t ‘do’ Starbucks, but in a café, it would be a one shot flat white. Strange how I hardly ever drink coffee at home, only when I go out!
2. What does your workstation look like right now?
My workstation is my pine kitchen table, sitting on a bright pink painted kitchen chair, with big soft cushion as I spend so much time here. My puppy is asleep in his bed under my ‘workstation’!
3. All-time favourite food?
Roast beef dinner with all the trimmings, but only a home made one.
4. Favourite author?
5. What do you think of open relationships?
I think it has the potential to be very dangerous, it’s not for me.

I have never played a video game and feel no overwhelming desire to ever do so!

Crips and Hummus dip with a glass of Barefoot Merlot

I’m stuck in a time warp, I still love Love Actually

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

Instagram, but I still don’t ‘get’ how people make fortunes, someone tell me how to do it.

It’s never as bad as you fear
13. What project are you working on right now?
Reviving my blogs and stupidly starting a new one.

15. Did you get good grades at school?
I was only OK. I only concentrated on subjects that I enjoyed, which was English, I didn’t see the point in learning about algebra as I knew I’d never use it again for the rest of my life, and I was right !
16. Dream job?
Sitting on a sunny Spanish terrace, writing all day.
17. Played any sports?

I like writing about life, funny situations, and everyone is entitled to my unsolicited opinion!
