In an effort to get away from all the stressful stuff that is consuming me, I thought I'd do the quiz Joy and Sue put on recently.

1.  Who are you named after?
No-one, as far as I know.  As Sue says, Susan was a popular name in the 50s.  I was nicknamed Suzy Wong by my parents as a child....think that was a film out at the time.  I like Sooze, it's what my Granddad used to call me.

2.  Last time you cried?
This morning, and every day recently.

3.  Do you like your handwriting?
I used to, now I just find it a chore (everything is typed nowadays) and get cramp in my hands.

4.  What is your favourite meat?
Lamb and gammon.  We eat a lot less meat nowadays though.  Not keen on steak, I can take it or leave it....usually leave it.

5.  Longest relationship?
I've been with Stevie Wonderful for 39 years next month....married for 37 years in May.

6.  Do you still have your tonsils?

7.  Would you bungee jump.
Not even for a million quid.

8.  What is your favourite cereal?
Used to be CocoPops, now I hardly ever eat cereal - too carby.

9.  Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Don't possess any shoes with laces....but if I did, I wouldn't bother untying them.

10.  Do you think you're strong?
Physically - nope, weak as a kitten.  Mentally - I used to be, now I'm just hanging on by a thread.

11.  Favourite ice cream?
B&J used to do one called Cherry Garcia - dark choc chunks and cherries, scrumptious.  Not seen it for years though, probably just as well.....if I had any right now I'd probably eat the whole tub.

12.  What's the first thing you notice about a person?
Their smile.  Used to be their bum! (if they were male!).

13.  Football or rugby?
Rugby - although not so much nowadays.

14.  What colour trousers are you wearing?
Pale blue jeggings.  That's pretty much all I wear....well, different colours, I have lots of pairs.

15.  Last thing you ate?
Do you know, I can't even remember what we had for dinner last night.  Despite the fact that I would have cooked it.

16.  What are you listening to?
Husband's got the tv on, not sure what's on though.  The tv is always on when he's at home, nearly always off when he's not.  I prefer the radio - Radio 2 or Heart 80s or 90s or Scala.

17.  If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
Blue or purple.  I'm definitely a crayon right now, soft and blurry.

18.  What is your favourite smell?  
Fresh mown grass, or the smell of my dog...but not when she's been rolling in something disgusting.

19.  Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
Nurse Rose.

20.  Hair colour?
Blonde (out of a bottle) and grey.

21.  Eye colour?

22.  Favourite foods to eat?
Cheese and crisps.  I could happily live on them.

23.  Scary movies or happy endings?
Neither really, I like an absorbing film with a strong storyline.  Or a Bond movie with Daniel Craig.  Or musicals....My Fair Lady with Audrey Hepburn is my favourite.

24.  Last movie you watched?
No idea - husband watches lots of films, usually sci-fi or something violent, but I rarely take any notice of what it is.

25.  What colour shirt are you wearing?
I don't really wear shirts....big boobs mean they gape too much.  Am wearing a dark blue jumper with embroidered flowers.

26.  What is your favourite holiday?
A pretty cottage in a lovely country area, with water (river or sea) nearby.  Probably in Cornwall.  And one where we had enough money to eat out a lot, so I didn't have to cook.

27.  Beer or wine?
I don't drink anymore (liver problem....and no it's not alcohol related!).  It was never beer, nor wine really, apart from the odd glass of white.  G&T was my fave.  Still is, on the very rare occasions when I do have a drink.

28.  Night owl or morning person?
Seeing as I'm up through the night almost every night, I guess I'm a night owl.  Not really by choice though.  I've always been an early riser, never used to have a lie in even as a teenager.

29.  If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
I like Somerset, but Cornwall would be nice too, in a non-touristy area (is there such a thing anymore?).

30.  Favourite day of the week?
Weekdays when there are less tourists/crowds about.


  1. Thanks for letting us know a bit more about you! Interesting to see how alike (and different) I am to you. My Fair Lady is one of my favourites too, although I think my all time favourite would be Happiest Days of Your Life - Alastair Sim, Margaret Rutherford, Joyce Grenfell et al, what's not to like? xx

  2. Does Stevie Wonderful sing as well? ;)

  3. Well done, did it take you mind off things for a while? I do hope so.

    Love and hugs! xxx

  4. 12. Lol, used to be bum then teeth!
