A, B, C...easy as 1, 2, 3...

{great Jacksons song by the way :D }

I saw this ABC list on Nicola's blog the other day, and then again on Carrie's ...so I thought I'd play too:

A is for Age: Old enough to know kids I remember being born going to university. Old enough to have achy back/knees/shoulders (take your pick). Too damn old...

B is for Bread of choice: French baguette still warm from the patisserie, bread with loads of seeds and stuff in that fills you completely up, fresh unsliced bloomer from my local bakery. Mmmm...breaaaaad {Homer Simpson voice}

C is for favorite Candy: At the moment...Kit Kat Peanut Chunky. And I'm anybody's for a wine gum

D is for fave Disney character: Ariel (mostly because she had the fabbiest singing voice of all)

E is for Essential items used everyday: My computer, my dishwasher (saves so much time)

F is for Favorite song at the moment: Frankly Mr Shankley (old Smiths song that I'm just playing over and over on the CD player in the car)

G is for favorite Game: If we're talking board games, then either Articulate or Absolute Balderdash

H is for hometown: Reading, Berkshire

I is for instruments you play: The recorder (lol...but I seriously can play it!) and I sing

J is for jam or jelly you like: Does marmalade count? That's my favourite

K is for kids: Celyn

L is for last kiss: Celyn when I tucked her in for bed

M is for your dad's and mum's jobs: My dad was a Salaries Dept Supervisor and my mum worked in Debenhams before she retired

N is for name of your first crush: Donny Osmond...ooo no, I take it back. Richard Burke, a boy in my class when I was 8. He had dark curly hair and beautiful bright blue eyes - he was looooovely!

O is for overnight hospital stays: 1996 for a laparoscopy, 2000 for an oophrectomy, 2002 for having a baby

P is for phobias: Flappy things - moths, butterflies, birds in enclosed spaces, bats near my head - bleeeeeugh! Also have vertigo...within 20 feet of a cliff edge is too close for me

Q is for quotes you like: Aaargh..too hard. Too many. I often say about scrapbookers who take it/themselves just a liiiiiitle too seriously..."It ain't the cure for cancer and it ain't world peace"

R is your relationship that lasted the longest: I'm presuming this means of a romantic nature, which would be Husband who I've been going out with/engaged to/married to for (ummm...fingers and toes...) 7 years 9 months!

S is for sugary or salty: I prefer the word savoury to salty, as I don't like salt in my food...certainly never add it to any cooking I do. But I prefer savoury foods...although I do like sweeties too!

T is for time you wake up: Around 7.30 to 8am, depending on how late I've been up, how sunny it is outside, what I've got going on that day etc. I'm terrible for getting up in the winter...too dark and miserable outside

U is for underwear: Yes, I wear that, thank you (big and comfy for me!)

V is for vegetables you love: Potatoes, parsnips, sweetcorn, artichoke, minted peas, cucumber, lovely sweet cherry tomatoes...mmm!

W is for worst habit: Leaving the bathroom door open when I pee...it drives Husband to distraction and I really do mean to close it to stop marital friction, but never never remember. I'm terrible aren't I?

X is for x-rays you've had: Lots of teeth ones but I can't remember any others

Y is for yummy food you make: Ooo, lots of things...I like cooking. The thing I make most often though is a damn fine gravy

Z is for favorite zoo animal: Big cats

But the question is can you play recorder and sing at the same time?
