Random Dozen #1

OK, so I thought I might try this meme that a friend of mine is doing... Here goes!

1. Would you rather host party or simply attend a party? Any day, I like to host the party... That way, I can have a drink (or two)!

2. Tell us about the most memorable party you've been to. I have been to a couple of 'Fancy Dress' parties, but these are really NOT my scene. So it is easier for me to say what was NOT memorable! But when I was on stage, there was some fantastic 'After Show Parties' that's for sure!

3. What is one thing you hope for in the after-life? After-life? Well that is TOO easy... To see 'L' again and all of the babies that became 'Angle Babies'...

4. What do you enjoy most about sunshine? Oh the warmth! After working outside for close to 20 years before moving into the office, I so miss it... BUT, I am also grateful I am not out there all the time now with Skin Cancers needing checking every so often...

5. When you attend a bridal/baby shower, do you prefer to bring your own gift or chip in with others to buy a larger gift? I like to give gifts that are a little bit quirky, but still useful, and when it comes to the kids birthdays etc (nephews/nieces), I love to think of educational toys that just HAPPEN to be noisy!!!

6. Would you rather have a FREE week of having your house cleaned or all of your meals cooked for you and your family? Hmmm... Can I have a half a week of both and help out with both as well? I love cooking, and I quite like cleaning, so this is a hard one indeed!

7. What song describes your mood today? Gloria Gaynor's, "I Will Survive" (but from the Australian Hit, Priscilla; Queen of the Desert) Sing the opening line with me now, come on, you KNOW the words... "First I was afraid, I was petrified. I kept thinking I could never live without you by my side..."

8. What is something you received for your own bridal shower/wedding that you still own or use? (If you are not married, feel free to sub a gift you received a long time ago.) We got a Pasta Maker, and we only started using it in the year prior to L dieing. She loved it, and it was a lot of work, but my GOD, did it taste good! I think I might have a 'Pasta Party'! Then all of the people can help me clean after the party!

9. Your favorite flavor of ice cream is? Chocolate, Rum 'n' Raisin... YUMM!!

10. When was the last time you felt "tested?" Almost every day since April last year...

11. "A Roast Dinner" is a food that once I start eating I find really hard to stop."

12. "L" was and ALWAYS will be, the best motivation.

In other news, I am not having much fun today, stuck at home sick and it is raining something fierce... But I am enjoying the new bed, when I am in it that is...

Hoo roo for now...


  1. The bed looks FABULOUS! I just had to sing along when I was reading your answer to #7!

  2. Welcome to RD! Please do come back and play in future as I love your answers!

    However, what is Fancy Fress?

    And I think you're the kind of Aunt that my sister is -- she absolutely DELIGHTS in finding things for my kids that have everlasting batteries and no volume control. We love her anyway!

  3. Hi there! Thanks for visiting my blog! Welcome to the Random Dozen! Loved your answers!! That bed looks heavenly!!!!

    Have a great day!

  4. Love the bed! Sick? What's up?

  5. Welcome to the random...love your header. I lived about an hour from Stonehenge for six years. I've been there ALOT. Every houseguest wants to see it : )

    Pretty sure I'll be singing I will Survive all day today-its the kind of song that once its in your head it stays!

    Enjoy your day!

  6. Welcome to Random Dozen! I have to agree with the other's I think the bed looks wonderful!

    I really enjoyed your answers.

    A roast dinner is my favorite - well if I make it that is.

    Great job!
