  1. Some of your answers made me laugh out loud (ref to Other). I’m totally with you on the thunderstorms and Tiffany’s. I’ve been to New York but only gazed and the beautiful sparkly things from the other side of the glass. I must own a Tiffany’s bracklet in this lifetime!
    What kind of films do you like? I’m a bit of a film geek.

  2. At the beautiful sparkly things…sorry.

  3. Hi Stranger,
    I like lots of films, I used to really like old black and whites like, Casablanca, Maltese Falcon – films with Bogart and Becall, Bette Davis. Favourite film probably Breakfast at Tiffanys! Films I don’t like are gross out comedys, Sci-fi. Love costume dramas – Tess of the D’urbevilles, Pride and Prejudice, Dickens, Bronte, Austen. Bridget Jones – (the first one only), love Colin Firth, loved him in Tumbledown about the Falklands war. Four Weddings and a Funeral, Oceans Eleven. Haven’t seen many modern films lately but on TV, I loved the Brideshead Revisited series, on ages ago (won’t like the new film)!
    Too many to list really! I don’t like much on TV and hardly watch it, other than History and geographic, wildlife series on Sky. HATE any soaps. HATE reality TV like Big Brother, do like X Factor!!

  4. You and my daughter would get on fine, she likes Audrey Hepburn and has the famous Tiffany gazing photo in her hall in NZ.

  5. I love X Factor! And am so pleased I have an excuse to stay in with Swarthy on a Saturday night again. He likes it too but watches the audition stage from behind a cushion because it’s too cringy.
    I’m fan of some of the old films. I love Casablana too, and All About Eve. Gone with the Wind and Some Like It Hot are two of my favourite films. I love The Shining and can probably quote you the whole script.
    But I like a lot of modern ones too. Sideways is amazing, The Orphanage and Pan’s Labrynth (I can never spell that word) are too fairly recent ones I like. Have you seen Into the Wild? It’s an awesome film – I think you might like it. Beautifully shot in Alaska and it’s all about the great outdoors. Sean Penn directed it.

  6. Two fairly recent ones…sorry, I’m reading and writing on my lunchbreak and the cheese crackers seem to be affecting my speillling and gramor.

  7. Lynette,
    I’ve just picked up an original press photo of Audrey Hepburn with the long cigarette holder from Breakfast at Tiffanys! Got it in a charity shop!! I love the Moon River seen where she sings. What a fantastic character she was.

  8. Hey Stranger,
    Like the sound of Into the Wild. Definitely look out for that one. Also there’s one on Saturday at 9pm called White Squall (love sea adventures too) with Jeff Bridges and directed by Ridley Scott, so that’s what I’ll be watching this weekend!

  9. Oh, I’d love a gardener too! When I bought my house, the previous owner ran a landscaping company, so the garden was lovely. In the four years I’ve lived there, it’s gone a bit by the wayside. Try as I might to pull weeds and prune, I just don’t have a green thumb. When the flowers are in bloom, it still looks lovely, but otherwise it looks a weedy, nasty mess…

  10. Thanks for the comment. I don’t have a green thumb either! I do bits here and there to try and keep it looking reasonable but it is way beyond me at the moment, really out of hand. What little I do makes little difference!!

  11. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
