If you could choose a food to reflect your personality what would it be and why?

I’m like a French Stick 🙂 A bit crusty and prickly on the outside but totally light and fluffy on the inside.  I’m also filled with tonnes of calories.

What was the last movie that made you cry?

I cry at everything but it’s been a while since I watched a full film. I think it was

Name four guests (dead or alive) you would invite to a dinner party

Okay… Family aside I’m going for…..

Ryan Reynolds – for the eye candy

Barak Obama – I’d love him to rule the UK

God – He needs a good talking to (I’m not religious so I’m not holding hope that he shows)

Harper Lee – I really want to know if she intended Go Set A Watchman to be published as I haven’t read it yet out of guilt

What was your favourite childhood book and why?

I loved The Hungry Catterpillar for the illustrations and the novelty of the holey pages.

Given the choice would you:

Eat nothing but Brussel Sprouts for the rest of your life

Streak through your town centre

I like sprouts but I drawn the line at nothing but sprouts so I’d have to streak

What’s the most random thing you’ve ever done

I’m random in my thoughts and ideas but I’m not usually random in my actions – I can’t think of anything to go with this at the minute…

What would you buy if you won a million pounds?

An extension on my house, round the world trip for the four of us….

What would be your dream job?

I love teaching but I’d love to be an actual, really real, established author

Who is your top celeb crush?

I have many – I used to have a big Cat Deely thing though but I’ve moved on.

What would be the one item you would save if your house was on fire?

Apart from my family or dog it would probably be my kindle of my first edition books

I’m not brave but it took a lot to put my blog out there.

  1. My answers:

    Who is your favourite author?
    Hard to name one. I like different people for different things. I have read a load of Elmore Leonard and love his fast-paced, witty dialogue; I love WG Sebald for his dreamy wisdom and unique voice, Pat Barker’s war/psychotherapy trilogy Regeneration was so powerful; and Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is probably my favourite book

    Why do you blog?

    Duh, I love to write, and I love getting a response to what I write, and really enjoy the interaction with other bloggers

    What’s your idea of the perfect writing place?

    Here, at my computer in my little home office

    How long have you been blogging?

    Irregularly for maybe three years, but I committed to one post a week about one year ago, and that’s when my numbers started growing

    What else do you enjoy doing – apart from blogging?

    I love sport, especially soccer, and attending my son’s soccer matches. I love sharing Netflix things with my wife. I love our two dogs, Bella and Lily – even if Lily, who is still young, breaks our hearts as we still try to toilet train her fully! Meetings pals in the pub – I am a one-on-one person, not a group guy

    What would be your dream job?

    Novel writer

    Do you have any quirks? Do Tell!

    Hard for me to say; ask my wife or kids – or maybe not!!

    What book character would you like to be and why?

    Ideally, Atticus Finch, but more honestly, the boy in me would have liked to be Batman

    What TV character would you like to be and why?

    Haven’t a clue.

    Any tips for new bloggers?

    I would not be so presumptuous. All I can say is I enjoy bloggers who write about personal stuff, and my preferred ones are good writers, foremost, but also interesting, interested, honest and generous to other bloggers.

    Any words of wisdom for life in general?

    Do try and spend as much time as you can doing the things you enjoy. Be with others as you would like them to be with you. Be thoughtful towards others, but if they don’t reciprocate, don’t waste time trying to win them over. It’s their fault!

    Thanks to https://likeherdingcatsblog.wordpress.com/ for nominating me

    I don’t normally do these things,so I cannot think of 11 people to nominate, or what questions to ask them
