Why did you choose blogging? After many years of procrastination, “will I, can I, would I, should I, dare I?” (you get the picture) I decided that yes, I might have something people might be interested in reading. A book is what I always wanted but perhaps that will come later 🙂

How is this lockdown affecting you? Aarrgghhhh……. It’s got me tearing my own hair out – kidding! We’ve been at my step-daughter’s for the last 2 weeks (sshh, we snuck out – both we and them have all been in isolation 3 weeks previously and so there’s no chance of spreading the virus) and it’s been so much fun getting to play with the little ones, ages 4 & almost 3 years, particularly as the weather’s been good in the UK.

Which is the number one place that you would want to visit in your bucket list? Why? Oh wow, it would have to my next number one place as my best so far is Israel for one year. Okay, now it has to be India because it’s vast and also has a lot of history and I love the food. I’m determined to get there within the next 2-3 years and learn how to cook more Indian food. My ex’s dad and his new wife are both Indian and they cook the most amazing foods for us. Poori’s have to be the best thing since sliced bread.

When did you realise that you could do magic with your pen? I don’t think I ever did realise it and not so sure I believe it now. I suppose my younger cousins and best friends used to love the way I told my tales about growing up like only having a bath once a week and having to share the bath water with your siblings — urgh! Fortunately, I was 2nd oldest so I got in the bath after only one person, my big sister. I’d wait until my younger (by 11 months and we’re born in the same year) sister was having her hair washed then tell her I peed in the water 😉 Anyway, the kids and cousins always said I should write a book and I thought I’d best start small, hence the blogging

What do you believe in – Luck / skill? Well, I don’t think I’ve ever had much luck, so I’ve got to say skill. But then I wonder what skill I have. See my mum and my two sisters are great at drawing, knitting, crocheting and my brother’s good at painting and decorating, home-building and fixing cars but I can’t do anything like that with my hands. Perhaps cooking can be called a skill, even if it is only for me and hubby lol.

  1. That was really amazing to read your answers… And thank you so much for those wonderful opinions about me..
    Stay blessed 😍🤩

      1. Thanks so much….
        I feel like virtually hugging you…
        My grandmother used to call me the same… Little lovely.
        Thank you for reminding me of her!
        I bet you are more lovely and cute and awesome…😍♥️💕

      2. By the way, being an Indian, I must say, that Indian cuisine is the best. I don’t mean to degrade others. But I have tasted other global cuisines.. and ours turned out to be the best (according to me) . But opinions do differ.
        See, india is a very diverse country. You gotta experience all of them. The culture and food and lifestyle is different in East, west, north and south. I am a south indian. Do google south indian pictures. I am from Kerala, to be precise. Poori is a good food, but can I recommend other amazing food that you could try?

      3. I agree, the food is so varied and cooking curries or other foods from the different areas is fun and exciting. I love vegetarian food and I’d be so happy if you have any recommendations or recipes that I can try, please.

        Honestly, it’s our favourite too 🙂 Caz x

    1. Oh, you little Sweethearts. I’m so happy you decided to blog and wish to make positive change in the world. You think you can’t make a small difference? Look:

      “As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person.” – Paul Shane Spear

      “Think of the enormous impact if just ONE PERSON improved the world of just ONE PERSON. That alone might change the world. And everyone in the world would be part of the change.” – Samuel Rozenhider

      And thank you so much for the nomination, I really appreciate it and I’m looking forward to answering your questions. In the meantime, big hugs, Caz x

  2. Congratulations! I do believe you can work magic with your pen/keyboard! Your voice comes through so clearly in your writing. You could definitely write several books, between your blog and the childhood stories. 😊👍
