I’ve been tagged by Thursday whose wonderful photos and writing have helped me while away many an hour.

What is your current obsession?

Decorating, sadly. And the thought of(and lack of) sleep.

What is your weirdest obsession?

I'm obsessed with derelict buildings, and expend an awful lot of energy scanning for them on car journeys, dreaming about them, and trying to get photos of them. I have no idea why I love them so much.

What are you wearing today?

Black shorts and a vest.

What’s for dinner?

We just had a BBQ. I had kebabs with vegetables and prawns.

What would you eat for your last meal?

Smoked Salmon & Asparagus pasta.

What’s the last thing you bought?


What are you listening to right now?

Kit snoring and the fan whirring round.

What do you think of the person who tagged you?

I would love to spend the day wandering around taking photographs with her, with lots of pub stops in between.

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?


If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?

Back to Jamaica. An hour wouldn't be long enough though.

Which language do you want to learn?

French probably. I quite fancy living there one day.

What’s your favourite quote (for now)?

It's in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped

What is your favourite colour?

Green, most shades.

What is your favourite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?

The cheap summer dress I bought a few weeks ago. It's getting a lot of use.

What is your dream job?

Working with animals, I really miss it.

Describe your personal style?

50's housewife mixed in with casual festival chic.

What’s your favourite tree?

Poplar. I like the musical sound the leaves make in the breeze, like wind chimes.

What are you going to do after this?

Tidy up after the BBQ probably, then have a glass of wine.

What’s your favourite fruit?


What inspires you?

Beautiful scenery, and watching all the wonders of nature. My current favourite is watching the swifts rolling and diving above my house every day.

What is your favourite photo that you've taken?

At the moment, it's this one taken at Thorndon Country Park last September:

What are you currently reading?

Nothing, I'm taking a break from reading as I'm all studied out from my course.

Go to your bookshelf, take down the first book with a red spine you see, turn to page 26 and type out the first line:

"I thought I recognized the dark eager eyes, the colourless cheeks, the strangely vigilant, anxious expression which I remembered in past times as a characteristic of Alfred Monkton's face, and was about to question my friend on the subject, when he gave me unasked the information of which I was in search." - The Second Century of Creepy Stories, published in 1937(and it smells like it!)

What delighted you the most today?

Watching the bees buzzing around last years leeks that I've left to flower. I left them for the insects so I'm glad they appreciate them.

By what criteria do you judge a person?

Their spelling. I'm not a grammar Nazi but I can't abide text speak.

What item could you not live without?

My iPod, definitely.

The rules:

1. Respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question you dislike with a question of your invention, then one more question of your own.

2. Tag eight other people.
