On Friday, a feast.

How many pillows and blankets do you sleep with? We have a duvet not blankets and I spend all winter snuggled under it but all summer completely avoiding it. Simon can sleep under the duvet all year long but I just can't bear / bare to be too warm. I have 3 pillows ... not that my head is ever on them all, I twist them around and fold them and stick one under my shoulder and my hands under another. A restless sleeper? ~ Maybe!

What are you currently "addicted" to? The BBC's
Just the two of us ~ go Mark & Natasha!* Tesco's medium sushi pack until I saw how many calories were in it yesterday ... how do Japanese people stay so thin eating sushi? Beringer's sparkling white zinfandel ~ 25% off at Sainsburys! My new car!!

If you could make a small change to your current routine or schedule that would make you just a little bit happier, what would it be? Umm, I'd remove a certain child from my class ~ we'd all relax a little more!

Main Course
Which adjective do you find yourself using often?
This is a bit "specialised" at the moment ... my friend Jayne in work and I are both from Swansea ~ she left there over 30 years ago, I moved here in 1997 but you know the old saying "you can take the girl out of Swansea, but you can't take Swansea out of the girl!"

So Jayne and I currently use a lot of English words (not only adjectives) in a very strong "Swansea" accent. They include epic (it's a classic if you pretend you're from the Hafod), fabulous (said fab-u-lous), flower (with lots of extra rolled r's), "I'll be there now, in a minute" and gutting (as in "I was so upset, the whole thing was gutting!" I don't know why we do it ~ actually it's probably done to confuse the Saes we work with ... who think we're speaking proper Welsh!

Have you ever picked up a hitchhiker?
No, ingrained by my mother too dangerous!

* It should be noted I had avoided this addiction until someone mentioned the show ~ Thanks

I have seven pillows on my bed when I crawl in it.
Usually one left when I get up.
