This meme is doing the rounds, and since I'm feeling a bit (mentally) lazy, I thought I'd hop on board.

A. Age: 50. But if I feel 35, does that count?
B. Bed size: Queen
C. Chore you hate: Ironing.
D. Dogs: Nope. We lost our last four-legged family member four years ago and have no plans to replace him.
E. Essential start to your day: A long black.
F. Favorite color: Aqua, teal or anything bluey-green.
G. Gold or silver: Gold
H. Height: 160 cm (that’s 5’3” for you non-metric folks)
I. Instruments you play: Piano, but I haven’t played for about a million years.
J. Job title: Personal Trainer. I prefer to keep my other job title to myself – it’s a dead giveaway about where I work.
K. Kids: 3 beautiful boys. Well, men really…they’re 23, 18 and 15 and all taller than me.
L. Live: Melbourne, Australia
M. Mum's name: Jill
N. Nicknames: Kek (betcha didn’t know that!)
O. Overnight hospital stays: Hmm. Tonsillectomy, meningitis, relapse of meningitis symptoms, three babies, oophorectomy (that’s removal of an ovary), hysterectomy. Eight. I think that’s the lot. I’ve lost count of the day surgeries. Wait. I forgot one: a stay in the mother-baby unit at our local private hospital because The Baby was such a godawful kid and would NOT stop crying.
P. Pet peeve: Mess in the kitchen – crumbs not wiped up, suds left in the sink, crap on the bench, dirty dishes abandoned. You get the idea.
Q. Quote from a movie: “What do you call this, love?" when Bike Boy puts dinner in front of me. (From The Castle). And "It's the vibe of the thing, Your Honour" from the same movie runs a close second.
R. Righty or Lefty: Righty.
S. Siblings: Three sisters, two brothers… we didn’t all grow up in the same house though. Blended families, eesh. Complicated.
T. Time you wake up: Just before 6:00am most days
U. Underwear: Bikinis. Boy legs always seem to crawl up under pants and I can’t stand bum floss.
V. Vegetables you dislike: Silverbeet.
W. What makes you run late: Faffing around online. Oops.
X. X-rays you've had: Nose, chest, foot, umpteen of my teeth, plus various types of scans of pretty much every inch of my body. Brain MRI, chest and abdo CTs, mammograms, more ultrasounds than you can poke a stick at.
Y. Yummy food you make: Lemon tart, black forest cake, choc-mint cheesecake, hummingbird cake, raspberry-Frangelico tiramisu cake . Anyone see a pattern here….?
Z. Zoo animal favorite: Monkeys.

Feel free to play along.

I'm a "The Castle" fan too. "Tell 'em they're dreaming" would have to be my favourite.

My cooking is legendary and not in a good way. When Teeny Tiny came round for dinner the other night she squealed with delight and clapped her hands when I placed a large plate of salad and grilled chicken breast in front of her. So maybe what I think is ho hum really isn't that bad after all.

Mmm, hummingbird cake. Love those quotes from The Castle!
