Dreamy questions this week from Cee.

What did I come in here for

What’s your strongest sense?

Sight.  But only when I actively look at something.  I can be looking for my favourite mug and it’s right in front of me.  I think my colour vision is particularly intense, hence my violent response to orange.

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)

Dopey? Though I did just sneeze…

If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be?

I enjoyed being 27, so I’ll go with that.

List of Jobs You Think You Might Enjoy: Even if you aren’t thinking about a career change, it can be fun to think of other jobs you might enjoy.  [Remember:  This is SYW where even your dreams can become reality.]

I would love to be an art teacher/therapist working with children.

I had a brief period as a holistic therapist and that was wonderful.

Yoga teacher

Dog trainer

Let’s talk while we eat…

Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?

My middle name means ‘Peace’ but I am named after various family members and have ended up with the initials – JIF. I wasn’t half cross when they renamed the cleaning product CIF.  Hey, maybe with the wonderful opportunities afforded to our newly-fractured country (thanks Cameron) we’ll get JIF back on the shelves.  Every cloud…

Music or silence while working?

Sshhh!

Music for dancing, silence for working.

If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?

If I could drive it would be my VW campervan, which I haven’t got.  Then I could take my special possessions to the beach.  Three special things?  It all depends on my moods.  I’ve got a couple of rather lovely tarot decks featuring classical works of art, which I’d probably run into a burning house to rescue as I paid so much for them.  Ditto my bloody gorgeous six volume boxed edition of Proust’s In Search of Lost Time (which, ironically, I can never find the time to continue reading).  And, thirdly, the pile of chaos on and around my desk, which includes all the crap I need to draw, paint, create and craft all the various things I feel the urge to produce at any given moment.

The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?

Get married, have children, move to the USA, vote Conservative, climb Everest, swim the Channel, wear anything orange.  I feel especially strongly about the orange thing.

See, I haven’t even got a proper orange pen.
