Janice tagged me

Janice tagged me a few days ago - details on her blog. Here are my answers:

What were you doing 10 years ago?

Getting used to being 50!

What were you doing 1 year ago?

Getting over pneumonia, worsening back pain that turned out to be fractured vertebrae. Crafting, crafting … mainly cardmaking … just beginning to dabble into scrapbooking.

And getting used to the idea that I would soon be 60!

Five snacks you enjoy:

Dark chocolate would easily cover all five! The darker the better – love Hotel Chocolat, but also Lindt, Green & Blacks – not that I’m a chocoholic! (I’m not supposed to be, ‘cause I have high cholesterol, but there are supposed to be health benefits from eating good dark chocolate – so that’s my excuse).

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:

This is a difficult one, because the one thing that money won’t buy John and I is good health. However:
Whatever it takes to make mum’s life more comfortable
Houses for stepsons and families
Support to charities
A chauffeur driven limousine at our disposal
Even more crafty stuff than I’ve got now (and that would definitely need somewhere bigger to house it all).

Five bad habits:

I suppose all five could be ‘eating too much dark chocolate’!! (as per the five snacks!)
But also:
Generally eating some of the wrong things even though I know I shouldn’t (and still ought to lose weight)
Getting impatient with my mum (‘cause I don’t really mean to)
Probably other things that others would tell me rather than me confess!

Five things you like doing:

Making cards
Blogging (particularly looking at others) and keeping up with folk on crafty forums
Scrapbooking (although I don’t do enough of it … perhaps one day)
Watching Holby and Casualty (I know … how sad … you’d think we’d had enough of hospitals!) and a few other programs
Cooking (but nowadays tends to be more functional than anything else – back doesn’t like the standing involved)

Five things you would never wear again:

Stiletto heels (originally with winkle-picker toes)
Hot pants – complete with bib (oh yes … especially with a maxi coat!)
Mini skirts
Platform shoes
Pleated skirts (wow … what a long time ago that was!)

Five favourite toys:

Computer
Craft Robo
Camera
Big Shot
Ipaq (but doesn’t get used so much these days)

So now I tag five others:
