Send Me Your Questions!
Do you have something you’ve been itching to ask? Maybe something food-related, something a little bit kinky or something completely random? Have fun with it, then be sure to check back next Tuesday for my answer!
And now, onto the questions…
1. Defend your splurge – Tell us why you bought that thing — we won’t judge.
I have two robot vacuum cleaners in my one-bedroom apartment/flat. You think I have time for removing and reinstalling the dogproof gate on our bedroom so that a robot vacuum can do the rounds? Y’all are crazy. Debbie looks after the bedroom, and Leon runs laps of the lounge. They got their names from wordplay on their manufacturers’ names, Deebot – Debbie and Lefant – Leon.They’ll be making their way around the home for the first time this week by the time this post goes live. In fact, be right back, I have to go clear the bedroom floor for Debbie!
2. What is one thing you always take from a hotel room?
Ahh yes, that’s better. So where were we?
Things I take from a hotel room… hmm, not much, because why would I want to cause a firm an economic loss purely out of selfish greed? Usually if there’s a (new) soap bar that I’ve used then I’ll take that, but if there is a used bar (and that has happened before) then I’ll go buy my own soap and take that home with me instead. Lotus biscoff biscuits – if they’re in the tea tray then they are coming home with me, if indeed they even get that far.
More often than not I steal ideas and inspiration! I am an absolute bugger for replanning my kitchen while I’m away from home. Storage solutions for small kitchens? Colour scheme ideas? Your girl is a tinker. I stayed in self-catering accommodation in Cornwall once and they had a tupperware tub full of sauce sachets, sugar etc, just in case people needed them. Guess what I now have in kitchen? Hooks under counters for storing saucepans, I pinched that idea too. Tea/coffee/sugar canisters placed on top of the bread bin, nicked it! White fiuffy towels in the bathroom, because I realised how many places don’t have coloured towels and I wanted that spa feel at home. I could go on, but I think I’ve made my point.
3. What is one thing in your pantry you know you keep for too long?
I still have two jars of my Dad’s honey at the back of my pantry, it doesn’t get eaten though and it probably won’t. I don’t have much to remember my Dad by, not even a grave or a tablet, so the honey is sort of something left of our cherished memories. I am very protective of it.
4. Which game show sums up your life?
b. Family Feud
c. The Price is Right
d. The Dating Game
I think, probably, The Price Is Right. We’re looking at getting some work done on our home (installation of a back door onto our garden) and I set the ballpark price at about £3k, with the knockthrough, rendering, door, locks and an outside step. The builder came back yesterday and he quoted us £2.985 for all of the work – £15 off of what I thought it would be. Sure it wasn’t the exact price but it’s still pretty damn close!
5. When all is said and done, will you have said more than you have done?
Oh fuck, you’re really asking that question? I do a lot of both. I’m one of those people who doesn’t say much for some of the time, but put me with the right people and there’s just no shutting me up! I have to feel comfortable around you, I have to feel like you won’t judge me if I let loose and go a little bit crazy (and believe me, there’s a lot of crazy up there!). With people who are kind of rigid and serious then I can be quite shy, but if I meet chattier, equally-crazy people well… as Matt says, I could chat for England! With that said I don’t have much patience for people who talk a lot and do very little (like my neighbour), so if you expect me to just talk and not do anything with my time then I am not the person for you. As my mother used to say “you can talk and work”, unless of course it’s a tea break… see what I mean?!
