- buy a very good SLR-camera with lenses
- maybe a new house where my larger kitchen will fit :))
- ........ - ........

12) DO U DRIVE FAST?
Yes sometimes I do, but never with children in the car and only when safe

13) DO U SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?
no

14) STORMS–COOL OR SCARY?
Cool, I used to watch the lightning as a kid from my attic-bedroom. Sometimes they are scary but that's also the cool part about them.

keep in better contact with people that sometimes have to wait too long for a respons or a visit, bake and cook some more complicated new things and do a little more cleaning

no I'm afraid not, I chop them up and feed it to the chickens.

Swimming

22) ONE NICE THING ABOUT THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU?
I'm getting to know Tanna a bit better since the Bread Baking Babes sessions, so I don't know all the good things about her yet, but she is clearly a motivator, encouraging, friendly and uplifting. o sorry it says just tell 1 nice thing....

Lien I enjoyed reading this a lot but I do have a question too: this last photo, to which point/question does it refer?

marl1 said...

Da's leuk om te lezen...! (En aardig dat je aan me gedacht hebt...;-)))
Enne eeeh in mijn 'kippenboek' staat dat kippen alle groenten mogen behalve.....broccoli....!

Lien said...

@ mar1...ooh, dat wist ik niet, wat krijgen ze daarvan dan?

@ Ilva, well I didn't really have the photo's that are to the point(s), but I wanted to liven it up a little with things I like.
This last one I choose because my sign is Libra, and though I'm not really a believer in astrology, I do tend to be like that; weighing issues and looking at it from all sides. And I'm starting to look a bit like her too I'm afraid :(

Lien said...

..well except my head is bigger ;)

I just have though of one extra point at Q 11)
- I really like to go and eat out in very good (starred) restaurants (in England at locanda Locatelli's, Blumenthal's fat duck,
Gary Rhodes, Michel Caine and Raymond Blanc. And a nice trip to El bulli in Spain....

Oh my goodness, this was totally delightful.
Enjoyed all your answers.
Like your books! More cleaning . . . probably not me.
And I have dust under my bed too.
Love the upgrade idea!!

Leuk om jouw antwoorden te lezen. Het antwoord op vraag 7 is heel herkenbaar.

Bij ons gaan de broccoli stronkjes linea recta naar de cavia's. Ik heb er nog 2 in de aanbieding. Interesse?

Pfff, wat een klus om zo eens over jezelf na te moeten denken. (Hoewel, die van het stof onder het bed in mijn geval niet echt erg moeilijk zou zijn ).
Erg leuk om die kanten van je te leren kennen , Lien.
