Sunday Social (89)

Linking up with Ashley and Neely

1. What are your favorite things to do on a lazy day?
I like to chill out somewhere comfortable, whether in bed, on the sofa of sloth or even on the patio (in the summer). In bed Casper is usually my constant companion; on the sofa of sloth it will be with Husband or in the garden just me, myself and I. Wherever I am I will be accompanied by my phone, my iPad, my Kindle or my laptop (or possibly all of the above) for amusement. Staying in bed also runs the risk of log periods of Xbox gaming!!!

Marvel Lego game... see what I mean about the Xbox
2. What is your tv guilty pleasure?
I really don't think that I have one. I don't watch soaps, and I don't watch reality TV shows. All the shows I watch are quite well know dramas and comedies.

3. What is your favorite road trip music?
Neither Husband nor I drive, so road trips aren't something that feature much in our lives.

I do like Robert Miles (especially 'Children') and similar when in a car. Anything that lets the imagination roam free will do in fact.


Last year when I flew to Scotland I found Allegri's 'Miserere' very uplifting (pun intended) at 30,000ft.

4. What are your favorite magazines of books to read by the pool or laying around?
I am not much of a magazine fan. Given my notorious short attention span you'd think I would be. It doesn't help that i'm too old for Cosmopolitan, too poor for Vogue and not quite ready to read the same magazine as Mutti and MiL - Good Housekeeping. When it comes to books I will happily pick up an old friend (Gone with the Wind, one of my favourite Stephen Baxter or Douglas Adams) but anything that is well written and a good read will do me.

5. What is your favorite snack?
Wasabi coated peanuts. A snack with bite! Mutti got me some as a gift on my hen night which came with little hand-tongs to keep your fingers dust free!
