Does your first and middle name have any significance, or were you named after another family member?
My parents were either going to call me Ruth or Pamela… I think I definitely prefer Ruth! I wasn’t called after anyone in particular, but mum and dad eventually decided to choose a name that couldn’t be shortened. Ironically, I’ve gone through my whole life answering to Ruthie much of the time 🙂
Music or silence while working?
Silence, always, if I have to concentrate on what I’m doing – I really love music, but I listen to the lyrics and tend to sing along. But if I’m doing housework or painting woodwork or cooking or anything I can do pretty much on autopilot, background music is great 🙂
If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?
Three things… hmmm… I’d probably choose one special thing given to me by each of my three children – so a grey ceramic heart on a ribbon from my son, a fun 21st century chick fabric doll from my eldest daughter, and a mosaic-tiled keepsake box from my yougest daughter – all special gifts given and accepted with love
The Never List: What are things you know you will never do?
Pot-holing – I’m seriously claustrophobic and am getting cold sweats even thinking about it…
Get into a submarine (see pot-holing above for explanation)…
Climb a mountain rock-face, even with ropes and stuff – I’m quite clumsy, so knowing me I’d probably fall off!
What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week thankfully has brought us some beautiful spring sunshine, showing off all the beautiful blossom, and at the end of this week I’m looking forward to the start of the Blogging from A-Z Challenge on 1st April! 🙂
