I think I mentioned before, but Cee’s challenge questions arrive in my in-box on a Tuesday morning, New Zealand time. It means I have all day to think about my answers before sitting down in the evening after dinner, so here we go for this week.
When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles or turn on the flashlight? How many of each do you own?
I’ve never lost electricity in a storm to be honest (touch wood!), but have experienced many power cuts due to strikes, failures in systems and such like. Having lived in Scandinavia, we always have lots of candles about. As we live in an area prone to earthquakes and have to have an emergency pack, we also have torches. I carry one small pen torch on my key ring and another small handbag sized torch with me at all times as many houses in Wellington are hidden away without much street light, including our own.
You are given $5,000 and the chance to exchange it for one of two envelopes. One envelope contains $50,000 and one contains $500. Do you make the trade? Why or why not?
Oh a tough one! Probably trade…or maybe not…
What’s your first memory?
Lying in my dolls’ bed (I was too big for it but insisted on trying to get into it) singing loudly and being told to be quiet by my older brother. I have to say now as an adult I sympathise with him! It was actually his birthday this week too.
What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something?
Toss and turn these days, but I find listening to a play on the radio works, unless it is too exciting of course! The best thing to do is to get up and make a cup of camomile tea.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week,
Continuing good weather, despite a storm on Saturday.
and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
The weekend of course!
