ok, with the idea of a new 'Getting To Know You' questionnaire on my mind, as well as the need to sew but not having a big enough chunk of time or energy, i thought of these questions:

1. what decade were you born in?
2. how often do you change off the sheets on your families beds?
3. if you had to fly on a plane somewhere, where would you go?
4. how many years has your BFF been your "BFF"?
5. what is your guilty pleasure in life?
6. aside from JM, where do you spend your most time online?
7. before you had kids, what would have been your dream job?
8. what do you order at starbucks (or other coffee place)?
9. seriously now, where should we plan a meet-up in 2015?
10. do you sew or have a craft specialty?
11. what is your latest book read?
12. last night, what did you have for dinner?

ironically, my daughter just called and asked me what could she get me from starbucks, as i was writing this list!!!!!

1. what decade were you born in? 70's
2. how often do you change off the sheets on your families beds? My bed weekly. The little ones' every other week probably. The older girls are responsible for their own so I have no clue.
3. if you had to fly on a plane somewhere, where would you go? Europe!!
4. how many years has your BFF been your "BFF"? 30
5. what is your guilty pleasure in life? I guess getting my nails done. At least, I always feel guilty about it!
6. aside from JM, where do you spend your most time online? Facebook
7. before you had kids, what would have been your dream job? Stay-at-home mom. Seriously, that's what I always wanted to do. But that would have been silly without kids so I would have chosen anesthesiologist. Also silly since I hate needles, but anyhow.
8. what do you order at starbucks (or other coffee place)? Strawberries & cream frappucino and/or pastries.
9. seriously now, where should we plan a meet-up in 2015? Hmmmmm
10. do you sew or have a craft specialty? Nope. My sewing expertise is limited to buttons. I save up all of my mending for when my mother-in-law comes.
11. what is your latest book read? Little B
12. last night, what did you have for dinner? Tuna steaks, red potatoes, and Portuguese rolls. It was the worst tuna I've had ever, I think, and I'm still burping it! Yuck!!

1. what decade were you born in? 1970 (decade and year)
2. how often do you change off the sheets on your families beds? Probably not as often as I should. I don't have a set day when I do it so every now and then I go "Yeah... probably should do that"
3. if you had to fly on a plane somewhere, where would you go? Italy
4. how many years has your BFF been your "BFF"? We have been friends since grade 2, but not close friends since adulthood, so it's a hard question to answer.
5. what is your guilty pleasure in life? Cigarette and a whiskey on the bonnet of my car during the night
6. aside from JM, where do you spend your most time online? Facebook and pinterest
7. before you had kids, what would have been your dream job? I've wanted to be everything under the sun, but I am very happy with the career I have
8. what do you order at starbucks (or other coffee place)? Double shot long black.
9. seriously now, where should we plan a meet-up in 2015? I'll make you guys a deal, when I win $10mil as I plan to do one day I will fly you all out here and feed you vegemite on toast and go to Healesville so everyone can cuddle a koala.
10. do you sew or have a craft specialty? Prior to being a florist I was a seamstress, so I certainly can sew. I hate it though, which is why it was a stupid career choice.
11. what is your latest book read? What Came Before by Anna George. I seem to be on a roll with heavy subject matter recently, I don't know how that happened, I swear I have some lighter books on reserve, they're just not coming through.
12. last night, what did you have for dinner? Ricotta, butter bean and zucchini fritters in a napoli and olive sauce with roasted pumpkin, parsnip and eggplant, a rocket, pomegranate and feta salad and some little rolls.
