Hello Everyone! smile

Thank you for joining in with the last ATPBYAQ flowers

Welcome to a new Lockdown Special - ask the person below you a question!

Questions can be related to 'the current climate' or, if you are heartily sick to death of all that, can be to do with anything at all.

Q: What is your favourite thing about lockdown?

Q: What is your favourite thing about lockdown?

Sadly nothing. I hate everything about it. That said I totally agree with it and will follow the rules.

Q: The National Lottery advise that before you make any major decisions after a big win you should buy yourself something that you've always wanted but would never have dreamed of even trying to save up for. Could be serious or could be totally frivolous but it has to be for you. What would you buy?

A chef to cook me healthy food

Q. Which charity/charities would you give the bulk of your lottery win to ?

FannyCornforth Wed 06-Jan-21 09:05:24

Homeless, Mental Health, smaller Animal Charities ( not the bomhemoths like RSPCA)

Keeping with the lottery theme: what property would you buy?

Puzzler61 Wed 06-Jan-21 09:30:57

A house very similar to the 4 bed one we presently live in, but I’d choose one on a large parcel of land to share with wildlife, and a separate building that conformed to regulations so that I could take in stray and unwanted cats until they could be rehomed.

If you got the chance, would you - or have you ever done -
A skydive?

Lucca Wed 06-Jan-21 09:36:53

I’d want to but might worry that I’d lose control of my bladder at the very least !!

What has made you laugh recently?

honeyrose Wed 06-Jan-21 09:41:40

This really made me laugh - Peter Kay’s autobiography written around 2006. I couldn’t put it down - so funny.

What craft project have you enjoyed making during lockdown?

Tangerine Wed 06-Jan-21 09:43:15

Victoria Wood's comedy shows which were on TV over the Christmas period.

When do you think this current lockdown will end? I think 31st March when a quarter of the year is over. This is mainly a guess.

Applegran Wed 06-Jan-21 09:45:10

I made soft toys for my family - even though I am not really crafty.

What do you do or think to keep optimistic and lift your mood?

Authoress Wed 06-Jan-21 09:45:11

I have discovered polymer clay, and have been having enormous fun making jewellery with it. Some of it is actually quite nice smile

Q. What's the best piece of advice a much older woman ever gave you?

honeyrose Wed 06-Jan-21 09:45:27

Ooh dear - I thought this might happen - two of us have now answered the previous question and asked the next question!!

Puzzler61 Wed 06-Jan-21 09:46:03

It’s a bit like “pin the tail on the donkey” but I’ll guess 25th March - our wedding anniversary.

THANK YOU FANNY CORNFORTH for starting this thread - it’s a fun one.

Are you expecting snow today?

Authoress Wed 06-Jan-21 09:46:13

Whoops, sorry, Applegran - we posted at the same time! But my answer works for yours too, and the follower might like to do both questions?

Glosgran Wed 06-Jan-21 09:46:15

Apart from scrubs and masks made earlier on, I enjoyed making Mrs Santa Claus and Elf Christmas aprons for the grandchildren's stockings.

ClaraB Wed 06-Jan-21 09:47:37

I've been knitting cardigans for DGD's and have crocheted them each a blanket. My next project is a scarf with pom poms each.

If you could be anywhere in the World at this moment, where would you choose?

WOODMOUSE49 Wed 06-Jan-21 09:56:35

With my daughter 300 mils away.

When did you last write a letter? (not typed)

Flytothestars Wed 06-Jan-21 09:57:13

Switzerland with my family.

With no limit on cash, what piece of jewellery would you buy?

Pinkshoes26 Wed 06-Jan-21 09:58:28

Home, surrounded with my own things. Just OH & I. The less people we come in contact with the better for staying healthy.

What home things are you up to to keep in good spirits. We can’t just sit in front of the TV all day?
Me I like to knit & sew.

WOODMOUSE49 Wed 06-Jan-21 10:02:45

OH! We've now 4 answers to ClaraB's question.

FranA Wed 06-Jan-21 10:03:15

Can’t remember when I last wrote a letter. Probably sometime before the telephone became common. 1 wouldn’t buy any jewellery I would rather do something more useful with the cash.
Question. What is the next thing you are going to do today.

MollyG Wed 06-Jan-21 10:03:40

With no limit on cash, what piece of jewellery would you buy?
I’d buy a an antique diamond ring

What is sat to the right of you right now?

Sarahmob Wed 06-Jan-21 10:05:02

In December, I wrote a letter to put in a Christmas card for a friend.

Would you sooner plan a beach holiday or a holiday in the country? (Planning is fun even if we can’t go!)

Anrol Wed 06-Jan-21 10:06:04

Some cushions

What are you planning for dinner today?

Noreen3 Wed 06-Jan-21 10:08:03

I've got my daughter's Nintendo Wii,as she's now got a Nintendo Switch.I've been enjoying Wii fit,never done anything like this before,but it's good exercise,and helps cheer me up to.

Q do you think we can watch too much news,should we keep up with what's happening,or does it just make us depressed ?

Noreen3 Wed 06-Jan-21 10:09:24

oh dear,it's happened again
