1 Take a look at the walls of your home, which picture/object is your favourite and why?
I love water colours, and we have quite a few on our walls. I don't think I have a favourite, but I do prefer the older ones.
2 What is/are your favourite perfume(s)?
My favourite perfume has been Dolce and Gabbana's Light Blue for years, but I also like to wear Flower Bomb by Viktor Rolf in the summer time.
3 How many pairs of shoes do you own? Have you ever hidden new shoes from your spouse?
LOL! Dare I answer truthfully? Er - no. I sadly confess that my shoe fetish occasionally gets the better of me. I do have rather a lot of pairs, and just maybe, some of them are still unworn. Gulp. Did I just say that? I have tried to streamline my cupboards by donating fifty or so pairs to a charity shop..... I dare not say more with Dan looking lifting his eyebrow at me.
4 Snacks - sweet, salty or both? If you could choose one snack, and it magically had no calories, what would it be?
I prefer savoury snacks, like cashew nuts and salted almonds, but then I get a humongous desire for chocolate. I love dark chocolate the best, but do admit to loving Maltesers. If they had no calories, then I would buy a big box and eat the lot!
5 What are your favourite cut flowers?
I am another one who loves blue irises. I am also a great fan of Old-fashioned roses. And sweetpeas. And lilies of the valley.
6 Without using a real name, describe one person in your life with whom you have a hard time being patient.
I really am unable to do that publicly. But yes, there is someone who absolutely drives me insane. They are soooooo boring!
7 What food do you love that your husband hates? What food does your spouse love that is "yeech" to you?
We eat most things around here. But I love peanut butter, both types - crunchy and smooth - and Dan cannot abide the stuff.
The thing Dan loves to eat that I hate are radishes. They are far to sharp. Oh, and olives.
8 What is the song you associate with meeting your honey?
I don't remember any particular song, but we had our first ever dance to Black Sabbath way back before they made the big time.
9 Do you have a favourite movie that you like to watch every few months or once a year?
I love A Good Year with Russell Crowe, and Dan loves the Bourne Identity with Matt Damon.
10 What collection(s) do you have? How did that collection start?
I used to collect all sorts of things, but have stream-lined my life these days as I was running out of space.
11 Where would you like to go on your next vacation? Is there somewhere else on your bucket list?
We both love to travel and are very fortunate to have done quite a bit of it. We have some small trips planned for the autumn but have not yet decided on a long-haul. There are so many places on our bucket list that they are too numerous to mention. The world is a wonderful place.
12 If you could buy clothes at one store, at what store would you shop?
I'm very fond of Phase Eight.
13 What gift(s) from your spouse have been the most loved and appreciated?
A small item of jewellery Dan bought me for my 21st birthday, is very precious to me. But the two items the most loved and appreciated are our children. They are priceless.
14 Name one item of your spouse's clothing that you would love to throw away.
I can happily name this - I already threw it away a month ago! He had this most awful, smelly, horrible bathrobe that he had had for years and years! And before you all lunge at me, I threw it away with his blessing. In fact, it almost walked out of its own accord!
15 What is the submissive action or inaction of which you are most proud?
Quietly getting up and slipping into the spare room in the middle of the night instead of shaking Dan awake when he is snoring his head off. I always used to shake him awake and swear and growl at him. Now I carefully pick up my glass of water and my pillow, and tiptoe along along the corridor to a room where I can sleep unhindered. It doesn't happen often, but we both get a good night's sleep that way, and he wakes me quite cheerily the next morning with a coffee in my favourite mug.
