no one  except the  oldest  daughter on Despicable ME  really.  I know  she isn't  'real"  but  that cartoon girl reminds me  alot of my oldest.  She is not a tomboy  but  'casual" is her style.. She has  glasses.. is fair  and wears her  hair  either  in two pigtails  or one ponytail.. Smart and sensitive  etc..

Alos  the little girl  who payed  Cindy Lou who on the Grinch movie  reminds me  of my Oldest..

what song evokes  a very definte  memory for you and why?

Although I am not a country fan, 'Go Rest High on That Mountain' by Vince Gill. My grandpa loved it, and it fit him perfectly, being a Christian. My cousin Jessica, who is an amazing singer, and a friend of hers who is also an amazing singer, sang it as a duet at his memorial service. Jessica sang, with Brandon providing backing vocals. She made it till almost the end, hitting every every word and note perfectly, despite the nonstop tears. Just a few words from the end, her voice cracked on a sob, and there wasn't a dry eye in the building. Ever since, it will pop into my head when I think of him.

If you could relive one day of your life, which one would it be?

the  oldest  daughter on Despicable ME

She does have a vibe, but the middle kid is cool too because she always wears that hat.

That first one is such a great movie.

If I could have the perspective I have now and actually be able to appreciate it, then I wish I could relive when I interviewed my Grandpas about their roles during WW2. I did a project on them and taped the interviews (which have been lost) but it was the only time they talked much about it and I wish I had cared more as an 8 year old and paid more attention.

My first job out of university, placing disabled children in nurseries and coordinating support for successful placements. Very rewarding to watch the kids grow and develop.

What is your favourite part of bank holidays?

Not working!  I love my job but I love time with my husband a lot more.

What is the most adventurous thing you have done?

Quit my job and gave up my apartment so I could travel.  I spent the summer in Ireland (that's when I met my hubby).

Do you prefer a backpack or a suitcase on wheels?

Small trips, a backpack. Longer trips, I tend to pack WAY too much, and need a big suitcase on wheels. I always have the thought of 'what if I get all the way there and want to wear___', causing me to over pack.

Do you take loads of pictures, or just a few significant ones?

LOADS. I've only uploaded about 2/3s of my images to Google Drive, and I'm taking up nearly 10% of our TB of space.

The holiday made me think of how much I miss my hubby when he's at work, so:

My husband and I actually met at work while paired up on a project together in 2002.  While we did have our moments, and we are no longer at the same company, I would love to work with him again!  Well same company, maybe not same team!!  We need something new to talk about a dinner!

For your next vacation, would you choose an action packed adventure like a safari or a sleepy, dreamy one like in the Maldives??
2001 - moved to the UK on a student visa
2002 - 2 year work visa (and met hubby later that year)
2004 - moved w UKC hubby to US
2012 - UKC hubby now a dual national (USC)
Apr 2015 - moved back to UK w DH and two DD

Somewhere in the middle--I'm not one for lots of adventure and I'm not good at extreme sports or anything like that, but I also don't like lazy laying by the pool or on the beach stuff either. 

Maybe a walking holiday or one where I am taking a class or workshop on something I'm interested in.

If you had to dress in historically accurate clothing for an entire week and could choose one decade of the 20th century, which decade would you choose and why?

My first choice would be the 50's. The hair, the makeup, the whole fun of dressing up every morning.  But I know I'd be over it after the 3rd day.  Practically I'd choose the 60's--hippie style.  No bras and probably no underware or shoes. Long floaty dresses. It's how I live right now!

I like this question.  If you had to dress historically accurately for a week in any 50-100 year period BEFORE THE 20TH CENTURY, which would it be and why?

I come up with some good questions sometimes  :) !  It's interesting you picked the 50s as that is probably my least favorite decade.  I think I'd pick the 1910's (Downton Abbey era).

To answer your question, I think I might pick 1800 - 1850 as that would span both Jane Austen's and the Bronte sisters' era.
