Lovely day for a Chat

 Believe it or not, it is time for:

This week Patrice askes the following questions and I have anwered in pink.  Why don't you join in!

What's your favorite fruit?
I love the look of berries and always buy them but end up not enjoying them as much as I want to.  I have to say mangoes and bananas are my very favourite fruits. It might be interesting to note that until about 4 years ago I could not even stand the smell of mangoes in the house.....now I love them.

Wendell would like to know if you've ever been horseback riding.
I have always loved horses. My favourite book as a child was Black Beauty although it always made me cry.  I rode my first real horse when I was 7 at a family friends farm.  It bolted with me and I was terrified.  When I was 11, I went for horse riding lessons on an ex racehorse....he was gigantic! then my dad bought me a cantankerous old pony but I could just not win him over so in the end I gave up, he got sold on and I got a cute puppy dog instead. I love Wendell and would love to give owning a pony another go. My dream would be to give a rescue home to old horses.

 Do you carry a small purse, a big one, or just a wallet?
I think your "purse" means handbag in my language....so yes. I have two handbags.  One which I take to work and I make sure I have my name tag/swipe on card and locker key permanently in it with a pair of reading glasses.  My other bag is lighter in colour and I take it with me everywhere else.  It is bigger so has plenty of room if I want to slip my camera inside. Then all I have to remember is to swap my "purse" (in aussie.....receptacle for keeping money/credit cards) into which ever bag I am using for the day.  Up to now I have only forgotten my money purse at home once.  

If you could travel to one state for a day (all expense paid), where would you go? If you're not in the US, where would you like to travel within your country?
I live in Australia so definitely to Tasmania.  Hubby and I are planning on retiring there in a few years time.   I am dying to head there and start looking for a place to settle.  I have already set aside an itinerary for a 6 day road trip - (Well it is a long way, might as well make the most of it).

 What was your first car?
I have never owned my own car.  I only learnt to drive when I was 23 and I was already married then so we shared a car until my kids were in school and then we got a second car so I guess that was "mine". It was a fire engine red Ford Telstar and even though it was second hand, it was brand new to me and I found my independence by having my own car to drive.



  1. thanks, for stopping by. fruit is so good. love the pics you picked to share within your post. too cute. have a great week. ( :

  2. I love mangoes. I think the small yellow ones have such a lovely taste. Tasmania looks beautiful.I should have put handbag-purse-pocket book in that one question. Different areas call a handbag different things. Have a beautiful week!

  3. I would be anxious too to find a place to settle! Sounds like a lovely place to retire!

  4. Interesting Cath , I love mangos , hard to find decent ones here but I do try . Oh and I adore horses , my dad had harness racing horses and it was always my dream to own a saddle horse but it never happened .
