Why not? Always books, sometimes food, but who am I really? Not sure you’ll find out from this post, but I liked this meme when I saw it on Reading Fuelled by Tea and so here are my answers:
Age: I’ve been 39 for quite a few years now. It won’t be long until I can’t get away with that one anymore
Book Size: Any! I used to prefer paperback, but I love a beautiful hardback too.
Chore that you hate: Cleaning the bathroom, or anything “wet” really. I don’t mind ironing at all!
Dogs: They’re OK. Great buddies. I had one as a child, but not now.
Essential start to your day: A cup of tea!
Favorite colour: It used to be blue, but these days I’m tending towards pink and purple.
