Sunday Social (87)

Linking up with Ashley and Neely for the Sunday Social
This week is all about four.

1. 4 favourite bands you loved in high school
I didn't have any really. I barely discovered popular music whilst at school; I studied music through GCSE and A-level (and a year at University) so I was much more focused on 'classical' music. Beethoven, Chopin and Mozart were my three favourite composers.

I have a bust of Beethoven. We had one at school in the music room (identical to this but bigger) and we used to keep the headphones on it. I guess you had to be there...

2. 4 go to meals you'd love to learn to cook or can cook really well
I do things with mince... I can make a passable spag-bol and a pretty good chilli con carne. I love making stir fries - whatever happens to be around but plenty of garlic, ginger and chilli. My husband's favourite is my vegetable soup. Easy to make and pretty healthy too!

3. 4 necessities to your daily life
My husband (I love saying that since we got married and do so at every opportunity!) - he is my rock, my confidante and my daily helper (without him buttons can't be done and shoe laces can't be tied!). Casper (my cat) who provides constant companionship, fun and amusement and sometimes irritation (only when he is naughty) - I grew up with dogs so I can say that cats can be just as companionable and loyal. My phone (it hardly leaves my side to which Husband will attest) - it runs my life. My crutches - without them I just fall down... I'm used to it, I mostly bounce, but it alarms other people.

4. 4 make up necessities you must have if you could only have 4 on
I hardly ever wear make up. I'm going out later and the four things I'm currently wearing is some Yves St Laurent Touche Eclat, eyeliner and mascara and lipstick... so that is obviously the four!

5. 4 favourite apps on your phone or iPad
Only four!!! See Answer 3 above... well the most used... Plume (an excellent Twitter client on Android) - you can colour friends different colours so you can pick their Tweets out from the crowd. Instagram - I adore sharing my photos (look me TheMrsNatG). Also Weather+ (the most reliable weather app) and Shazam (for those, what is this tune moments).
