Hello Everyone! 😃
Lovely new Spring thread!🏵️🌦️🐇🐣🐛

What is your chocolate treat of choice?🍫

Trisha57 Tue 16-Mar-21 10:15:49

I've put on weight definitely, but I don't weigh myself regularly so don't know how much. Probably better for me not to know!

Have you ever experienced deja vu?

lovebeigecardigans1955 Tue 16-Mar-21 12:09:39

No, I don't think I've had deja vu. The thought of it is a bit weird, isn't it?

Did any previous boyfriends have either 1960s style long hair or a 1950s quiff?

hollysteers Tue 16-Mar-21 23:40:33

1960s longish hair.

Do you prefer fiction or biographies/factual books?

CanadianGran Wed 17-Mar-21 04:11:20

Fiction, but even better if based on true events.

If you were to be a farmer, what would be your specialty?

Cauliflower. I eat loads so growing it would be great.

No, never.

Where would you go if you could go anywhere tomorrow?

SecondhandRose Wed 17-Mar-21 11:11:57

I still see my doctors face to face as I have cancer and am on chemo. Saw GP this week and going to hospital on Friday.

Where is your favourite holiday destination in England?

henetha Wed 17-Mar-21 11:26:18

Cornwall .It's my spiritual home. I was born in Devon but right by the river Tamar which is the border, so I regard myself as part Cornish.
Apart from that, I think Northumberland is really lovely.

Do you ever wish you had emigrated when you were younger?

PennyWhistle Wed 17-Mar-21 11:26:24

That is a tricky one SHRose! Devon, Cotswolds, Cornwall are all glorious - but Home (Dorset) will always be my favourite smile

What would you do with £50,000?

lovebeigecardigans1955 Wed 17-Mar-21 11:29:42

Back to previous - Albert Hitchcock, and the last - Sidmouth.

Do you wear a pinny each day and still use such things as tray cloths and tablecloths? I do and I'm probably in the minority.

jenni123 Wed 17-Mar-21 11:30:05

Treat my children, keep some for me and help charities.

The same town as my grandchildren so I can see them often. What hobby do you like doing at home?

Bluedaisy Wed 17-Mar-21 12:32:15

Was card making but I’m now into mixed media art and scrapbooking. I want to leave all our family photos in beautiful albums with as much memories as I can muster for future generations.

If you could go anywhere in the world at the moment where would you go?

olliebeak Wed 17-Mar-21 12:58:00

Glen Nevis in Scotland. I've not been able to go there for a few years and I'm really missing the place.

Are you missing 'Live Music' - and who in particular are you missing?

grannybuy Wed 17-Mar-21 14:19:11

I don't do live bands, but might go see a specific performer, and more likely, a musical. I would like to go to a Ramin Karimloo performance. Do you like musicals? If yes, what would your favourite be?
