Wednesday Hodgepodge - The Return

I think I have pretty much decided that taking part in Hodgepodge weekly like I used to isn't working out. In saying that I love it when I can take part. So here goes...

1) April 22nd is Earth day. Are you inspired by nature? In what way?

I would say I am unexpectedly inspired by nature. The world around us isn't something I am hugely appreciative of until I am suddenly struck by a certain scene, picture or object. I think it's because I am used to my homely surroundings that it isn't until something changes or if I am away that I suddenly think 'wow that sure is beautiful!'

2) Down to earth, four corners of the earth, move heaven and earth, not have an earthly chance, or salt of the earth...which earthly idiom have you most recently encountered? Explain.

I would say down to earth or move heaven and mum is currently going through a lung cancer scare. I remember when she told me 2 weeks ago her doctors suspicions and I just felt like I had been hit in the gut. I honestly felt like vomiting there and then at the news. I felt like I had been brought down to earth with a massive thud...and it hurt. In saying that now I have had time to digest the news I will move heaven and earth to make her well again!

3) Give one piece of advice you might give a newly engaged couple.

I have never been engaged but I have seen many friends get hit with 'wedding fever.' They get caught up in the world of weddings, fireworks, cakes, icing and dresses etc. Then when it comes to the wedding it just isn't very them. I think a wedding should reflect the couple and their relationship, not taking everything the wedding world has to offer. So I would say 'be true to what you have already created in your relationship.'

4) When did you last engage someone to perform a job, task, service, home repair, or improvement? On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best) how would you rate their work and/or your satisfaction at the job/service provided?

In the last few months my friend and I decided to hire a financial advisor to sort out our mortgage paperwork, life insurance and legal queries. They have been fantastic! The whole idea of moving is very daunting, especially when it is your first time. The company have been flawless and totally taken the burden off of us. I would rate them 10/10!

5) When did you last find yourself engaged in small talk? Are you an expert?

I went to Edinburgh a few weeks ago for a friends party. There were many people that I did not know there and I engaged in small talk a lot. I find I am quite comfortable in making small talk with people. I like finding things out about others and on a daily basis I do it for work.

6) What was the last historic place you visited?

uumm thats a good one. There are many that pop into my head. I went to Edinburgh a few weeks ago and that was fun! I also travelled via Kings Cross station which is famous for many reasons but I wouldn't say historic. I am off to Niagara Falls next month and that's quite historic!

7) The world would be a better place if we just_____?

Stopped moaning!

8) Insert your own random thought here.

My Mum gets her test results back tomorrow. It's one month until I go to Canada. My nephew turns TWO next week - how?!?! Too many thoughts!
