Wednesday Hodgepodge - 27/3

This Hodgepodge looks fun! If you want to take part (I know you want to right?) then answer these questions and link back on Joyce's blog every Wednesday!

1. What are your plans for Easter? Are you cooking a big lunch or dinner?  Dyeing eggs? Attending a sun rise service?  Eating too much chocolate?

Oh all those sound fun but I'm working- boo! Luckily I finish at half two so will come home and all my family will be over for Sunday lunch. Simon and I will be swapping our Easter Eggs we have bought each other too. Otherwise, Easter is quite low key in my house hold. 

2.  What is something you feel too young to do?

I would say right now it's having kids. My Mum was my age now (24) when she started having children and I just think how did you do that? I also have many friends who have babies/toddlers and major kudos go out to them! I think I am still in quite a selfish time of my life where children would be a hindrance rather than a blessing. One day...but still feel too young at the moment.

3.  "Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs..."  

Of the characteristics mentioned in the biblical definition of love which do you find most difficult to live out and why?

Most definitely the last one - love...keeps no records of wrongs - only because I am quite a judgemental person and I hold grudges easily. There have been a few times with Simon and with friendships too where, when I have been upset/hurt or angry, I hold people accountable for their (in my view) bad actions  Even if it happened years ago I will dredge up their wrong doings despite whether they have learnt. I have got a lot better since I started nursing and I am very aware of it now being in a relationship with Simon. But it is something I will hold my hands up to being guilty of. 

4. What's a springtime flower you associate with your childhood?

It would be silly not to mention the Daffodil  I remember at school we had to wear a Daffodil in March to represent Marie Curie (raising awareness for cancer). I also love snow drops! They're popping up everywhere at the moment. 

5.  Ever sung karaoke? If so, what's your go-to song? If not and you're given the opportunity, would you? 

I have only done Karaoke twice! Once when I was on holiday years ago and the last time on my 18th birthday. We sung Queen - Don't stop me now. My friend has the video which is awful to watch but we did get a few people dancing. 

6. What is something you keep in a basket?

Does washing to be ironed count?

7.  When was the last time you felt foolish?

I think I feel a little foolish for minor things every so often. I think the last time I felt really foolish was when I did my Immediate Life Support study day last month. The instructor was asking questions and even though I knew the answer I still looked at him blankly. I have always had this unnerving question of "what if it is wrong?" and then I would really look like a fool. It's a battle I always have with myself in situations like that. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Last month I posted that I'm thinking of going to the Caribbean next year. Well due to finances and this thing called a 'mortgage' that we're saving up for it probably won't happen. However, we are thinking of doing a long weekend away in a European city. We're toying between Amsterdam, Venice or Cannes/Saint Tropez? Anyone been?

We are going to Amsterdam this summer. There are definitely some wonderful things to do. "Hop on, hop off" canal boats as well as bus tours. Happy Easter!

Joyce said...

Any of those cities you mentioned would make for a great long weekend.

So far, everyone has had the same answer to #3...I'm wondering if the men who sometimes play along will answer in the same way the women have? I'm thinking it might be more of a female thing.

Happy Easter!

Sounds like you have a great vacation planned :)


The age, 'too young'....I like how you think. You're wise to wait for children these days, of course, that's my opinion.

I'd pick Amsterdam... It's lovely, and most Dutch people speak passable English and don't resent doing so to Americans, so it is easy to get around there, too. The Dutch are very engaging, as well, compared to the French. Unless you speak French well, that is. They can be crusty like their baguettes, but I love 'em!
