I was over at canadianbloggergirls blog and she has given the five question friday a go. As you know I like the meme thing as I am as lazy a blogger as I am at everything else.And, I love how everyone answers these question thingy's so differently.
This weeks 5 questions are:
1. How close to your childhood dreams is your life now?
Close, I always wanted to be married and have children,so those boxes are ticked. I finished school in 1979. Careers for girls weren't a given back then, and unless your parents were academics, it was just assumed that you wouldn't go to uni. I had the impression from school and life at that time that jobs for women were only until you had kids and then went back to work to "help" save money to put in a pool or buy a new car.The cost of living rises from the late 80's changed that attitude.I wanted to be a hairdresser and did some training but became a nurse a couple of years later.I seem to remember wanting to be a teacher when I was about 10.I liked the idea of being bossy.
2. What is one must have item for the summer?
I would die without it I'm sure. I'm ok till the humidity hits or its over 32 degrees celcius,then I flick the switch. Hubby switches it off to save dollars.I'm sure people have killed for less.When I was a kid we had one desk fan between 5 of us and my dad turned it off to save electricity,we prayed for the southerly buster to cool us down while we tried to sleep,constantly turning the pillow for the brief cool touch on our faces.3. Do you have your kids stay up on school stuff during summer vacation? (Or, if you don't have kiddos, did your parents make you keep up on school stuff during summer?)
no school holidays were for fun,though I did keep them reading, but that was for enjoyment as well as practice.
When I was a kid,my dad left a list of chores to be done,I don't think he liked us leaving the house.
4. Do you can or freeze fresh produce?
no, too lazy,though once I canned peaches,made plum jam and have used the "ezysauce" to make tomato relish.I don't know what came over me.
5. Do you get ready for the day first thing in the morning?
For what? Unless I'm going somewhere,which is pretty much shopping once a week,nope, but I do get out of my PJ"s eventually.
