Thanks go to Melanie for the Q&A session every Monday. You can check it out by clicking below
Is it ever okay to commit a crime? Please explain.
Technically I would say No, but it would depend on circumstances, ie. if you were desperate for medication for a sick child, in self defense, or starving and pinched an apple off a market barrow.
Do you deal with change well? (not money, because I know some wit out there is thinking how bulky coins are. Well I did any how. )
No. I hate change. I’m an old stick in the mud, better the devil you know and all that. However, saying that I’m not daft enough to know that we have to change or make changes in our life sometimes.
Do you like birds? The sound of bird song in the morning, taking pictures of them, as food?
I love to hear the birds, even at 3 o’clock in the morning when a blackbird or thrush will be singing their heart out. Now ducks at that early hour in the morning are not quite so harmonious and we had a few of those when we were on the boat.
With ducks and geese on the lake in the park with their new families, I am always taking pictures.
In respect of food, I haven’t bred chickens for the table, but appreciate they aren’t born in polystyrene trays and clingfilm. I also like duck, turkey, even pigeon or pheasant, but find goose a bit too greasy. However, if needs must, I have an oven waiting.
What’s the least used item of clothing you own?
At the moment bras. Since my mastectomy, I’ve only worn one three times, even though I spent over a hundred pounds on ones with pockets to house The Precious.
However, I do own a frock I haven’t worn for almost 3 years, and a couple of skirts I kept in case I had to go back to office work which I haven’t worn since 2007 when we moved into the cottage.
