If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?
I have before hired guys to help in the garden as I am just not capable anymore. Nowadays though, I am not too capable with the housework either. So if I could hire a live in guy to do both gardening and housework it would be awesome. I enjoy cooking though, so it would be a trade-off. He cleans and gardens and I fill him with good food.
What makes you laugh the most?
Intelligent wit. The type you find on British comedies or aussie humour like comedians Adam Hill or Graham Norton.
My latest dad joke: Why don’t Whales have balls? Because they can’t dance.
What was your favorite food when you were a child?
When I went to visit my grandfather, he would make a big pot of Sago pudding, just for me and him. Much to the disgust of my mother, we would not even use bowls but eat it straight from the pot. It was a special time that he and I shared. None of my other brothers liked it, just me, and he never failed to have some waiting when he knew we were going to arrive.
List at least five favorite flowers or plants.
Lagerstroemia Indica. Commonly called Crepe Myrtle
Wysteria grandiflora: your common Wisteria
Buddleia davidii: I think its sometimes called Butterfly bush
Tibouchina Alstonville: sometimes called Lasiandra
Brunsfelsia latifolia: yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Now I realise that all of these plants have purple flowers. How odd as I don’t necessarily like purple elsewhere.
Others I would include are Jacaranda (also purple), fuchsia, freesia, and frangipani. Some fuchsias and freesias are purple but frangipani is white, or yellow, or sometimes pink. I prefer the white.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for my time spent at The Big Issue, last week, and this week I am looking forward to finishing a couple of essays I am working on.
