Sunday Social (25)

Linking up with Ashley and Neely for the Sunday Social
1. Name 4 jobs you've had in your life.
I have had so many it's hard to remember them all... I did a lot of part time jobs paying my way through University. Current job: Chartered Quantity Surveyor; apple picker (lonely, boring, and surprisingly hard work); filing clerk (often for many companies, very good at filing); cleaner (some excellent jobs there - I liked the one where I cleaned a tall Edwardian office conversion, alternate floors on alternate days and delivering coffee/tea twice round the building... otherwise sitting in the kitchen and reading. I also liked the one where we had to keep the toilets stocked with paper and empty the bins and spent the rest of the time hiding in the basement corridors reading).

Tools of the trade

2. Name 4 movies you would watch over and over.
Gone with the Wind; High Society; Groundhog Day and Heaven Can Wait. The actual list is much (much) longer.
3. Name 4 places you have lived.
Village in Kent where I grew up; student halls at the beautiful Royal Holloway College campus (although not in the most beautiful building) Dartford (several student houses in the best parts of town); South London (current residence).
Kentish Country Village
View from my bedroom in Dartford... that's the motorway
London's country campus... I didn't live there
South London 'village'

4. Name 4 of your favorite foods.
Avocado; chocolate mouse; steak and kidney pudding; Camembert cheese - there's a strange meal in there somewhere!
5. Name 4 things you always carry with you.
iPhone, bus pass/Taxicard, wallet... look at that, there aren't four! Gloves at a push.
6. Name 4 places you have been on vacation.
New York City, Prague, Paris and Norfolk (there are more exotic, but Norfolk was the last holiday I had with my Dad so it was special).
NYC: Looking down from the WTC
Paris: La Tour Eiffel
Norfolk: on the beach
