Gosh – week 36 already – and spring is here! Here are my answers to this week’s questions from Cee’s Share Your World.

If you were a pen, what type, style and colour would you be?
One with blue ink that was nice to use.
How many languages do you you speak?
Obviously I am a native English speaker (though recently had to prove it to NZ Immigration, which made us all laugh given I am the only native speaker in our household!). I did French and German at school and can go shopping still in these languages (until they ask for the money….). I did learn a little Polish as an adult, and can pick words out. I also did Russian classes for a short while, and at least know the alphabet. I did Danish classes for 4 days a week for 18 months when I moved to Denmark and passed the final level 5 exam. However, I dislike the sound of the language, and used it as little as possible when I was there. Nowadays my Danish experience is limited to reading Facebook status lines. My husband is Swedish, and though I don’t speak the language, I understand a lot as we did, and still do sometimes, watch Swedish TV, and he and my step son speak Swedish at home. Basically, I know a little of quite a few!
Are you a listener or talker?
Rather Have: Which would you rather have, 2 million dollars or true love?
I have true love, so will take the money!
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week,
and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
A weekend with no plans. Looking forward to time to read, blog and get around to some much needed housework.
