30 Q & A's

When I first started blogging these Q & A things used to do the rounds quite often, haven't seen one lately so when Joy found this set of questions and posted her answers I thought I would pinch the idea for filling a post this week.

This was done Saturday lunchtime

Don't know - sometimes TV programmes set me off - I hate crying

  1. I had to laugh at the crayon Q & A. Your answer is just how you come across on your blog. And no.18 too!
    This is a fun idea so I hope you don’t mind if I pinch it for a post this week. I really feel I have got to know a bit more about you.

  2. This is so you - although we have never met and I only know you through your blog your answers are what I would have expected and many of them made me smile - though I might have had you down to have a go at the bungee jumping!!

    1. No bungee jumping! Not ever even if I was paid. I'm not nervous of heights but the thought of going down at speed doesn't appeal.

  3. Very fun! May I pinch it too?

    1. I did it too! Here are my responses:

    2. Hope lots of other people do it too

  4. Replies
    1. Thank you - it filled a post after a stay-at-home weekend!

  5. You are such a wonderfully grounded woman! Definitely one of the strongest women in Blogland, long may it be so.

    1. Goodness that's a nice comment. Perhaps I'm a bit too down to earth for some people.

  6. Hi Sue, I am Barbara , nice to "meet" you

  7. Fav food... What someone else has cooked for me! I love that!!!!!!

    Yes, "back in the day," there used to be lots of these... Just-type-and-answer-these-questions.... For a blog entry. Actually I am glad they rather disappeared. -grin- I like a spontaneous post, right from the blogger...

    But I am only one blogger!!!!


    1. I can't remember the last time I did one of these lazy posts

  8. I love this. You are a well grounded person which I already knew of course. My favorite food is the same as yours - whatever someone else cooks!

    1. I cooked proper meals almost everyday for so many years so a meal cooked for me now is such a treat

  9. I love this Q & A, Sue, so I will pinch it too if I may. I love your crayon answer! I’m doing a major catch up of blogs at the moment and have just read several of your posts. Your pink coat looks a great buy, the style of it is lovely. I’m glad I’m not the only one who has various ‘waiting to be read’ book piles too. I hope Storm Dennis didn’t hit you too badly :)

  10. I loved your answer about not being a crayon!

  11. I borrowed it as well. It's a nice way to get to know about people.

  12. Oh you did make me laugh, especially 'Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? … Only if they are lace ups'. Brilliant.

    I'll pinch this one if you don't mind, it can pop up while we are away.
