Here are my answers to Louise’s questions!

1. What’s your favourite novel and what
 do you love about it? 
Choosing one novel is very hard as I have 
favourite novel’s for
 various genre’s and moods. Therefore, I’ll choose
 ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin’ by Lionel Shriver. 
I love it because it explores the dark side
 of motherhood,
 and the complexities of remorse, regret and parental
 love. I haven’t sen the film as I have such
 fond memories of the book and I sometimes find
 films spoil that love.

2. Do you have any pet peeves in fiction? 
I can’t say that I do. I either enjoy a book or 
I don’t, regardless of how it is received
 generally. The author’s voice is important

3. What are you most proud of?
 My daughters and their positive
 attitude to life and their future careers.

4. Your most and least favourite people in history?  
Emmeline Pankhurst is my favourite person. 
I always vote in elections because of her dedication 
to the cause, and my 18yr old has recently voted
 for the first time. My least favourite person is Hitler, 
who is a recurring choice amongst the nominees. 
Need I say more?

5. The country, city or other place you’d most
 like to visit? 
Canada looks stunning – but oh so far away.
 I’ve become a wimp where flying is concerned. 

6. Which five people would you like to meet
 (dead, alive or fictional)?
Audrey Hepburn, Lionel Shriver, Anita Brookner,
 Greg Davies, Ian Rankin.

7. What makes you laugh the most? 
I love watching ‘You’ve Been Framed’ with
 my daughters. I especially love the clips
 about children and weddings. I love hearing
 my eldest daughter’s tinkly laugh.

8. If you could know the future, what would you wish for? 
For my daughter’s to achieve happiness in their 
chosen careers, and for my husband and I to
 enjoy a happy, healthy and long retirement together. 

9. If you won the lottery and could donate money to charity, 
which charity would you choose and why?
 I’m going to be a rebel and choose two.
 The Multiple Sclerosis Society
 and The Guide Dog Trust.

10. Do you suffer from any little phobias or superstitions? 
Spiders (another common theme).

11. What’s your favourite guilty pleasure?
 Watching American crime shows.

Eleven random facts about me

1) I am addicted to chocolate with sea salt.
2) I have far too many scarfs.
3) I love singing karaoke.
4) I support West Ham and Norwich
 football teams, and have been to 
see both teams play several times.
5)  I passed my driving test the first time in France.
6)  I tend to wear floral and stripy clothes, often
 together much to my daughters’ chagrin.
7) I went through a hippie phase during and after 
my nurse training.
8) I used to write to a prisoner on death row
 through an Amnesty International scheme.
 He was eventually executed.
9) I can’t drink much as I quickly become giggly
 then sleepy.
10) I used to hate giving injections when I worked
 as a family planning nurse.
11) I always were perfume as it gives me confidence.

I am going to pass the Liebster Award to the following blogs:

Thank you again, Louise. 
Happy Word Flow One & All
