Back on the bandwagon Hodgepodge!

I have yet to do Wednesday Hodgepodge this year! Due to being so busy and having my mind preoccupied I have not had a chance. Even though I may not do this every week I am pleased to be joining in today. So what questions are in store for me this week?


1) What's the biggest change since your childhood in the way people think/act?

I can think of several things but the one that really pops up in my mind is less people vote. I think it is sad but I remember in my younger days my school closing on election day to open up polls. I remember it being the talk of TV and seeing it slashed across newspapers. It may just be because I have become older and more accustomed to seeing it that I notice less. But voting doesn't seem as important as it did when back when I was younger.

2) The Olympic biathlon involves cross country skiing broken up with either two or four rounds of target shooting. Which part of that would stress you out more? Or would you love them both equally?

I think they both sound as bad as each other. I think I'd rather be a spectator.

3) February is national canned food month…what is your most often purchased canned food item? What was in the last can you opened?

In my family baked beans are something that we purchase on a regular basis. The last canned open good I opened was tuna (for my mum!)

4) What river (anywhere in the world) would you most like to cruise on?

River Nile - Egypt.

5) It's the middle of the night and you can't sleep…what do you do?

I tend to toss and turn. If I have someone in the bed with me I usually wake them up (yeah I know, I'm mean!) I try not to get up as I think that wakes me up more.

6) How important is keeping your cool?

I'd say in professional situations it is important. There's nothing worse than losing your rag at work! However, in family/friendship situations keeping your cool doesn't necessarily work. I think mainly because it can build up tension and cause more upset.

7) I've got white stuff on the brain so why not run with it? White lie, wave the white flag, white knuckle it, white wash a situation, or as white as a sheet…which phrase could you most recently apply to your own life in some way?

Haha! This is fun. I would say 'as white as a sheet' because last week I was driving back from a concert. The wind and rain was so so SO bad on the motorway. To the point my car kept veering to one side. Then all of a sudden my car aquaplaned into another lane and a car had to swerve to avoid me. It was so scary and the colour from my face just drained!

8) Insert your own random thought here.

Guess whose going to be an auntie again?

So glad to see you in the Hodgepodge this week! And congratulations on the happy news. Aunties are special people : ) I suspect a lot of people will share your sentiments on #2!
