If you lost a bet and had to dye your hair a color of the rainbow for a week, what colour would it be?
But my hair is dyed. I am a natural brunette, but did not want to show off when I meet my retired friends. That is why I decided to change the colour to grey, just to fit in. Of course, if I really wanted to go the whole hog, I would choose something more in a light blue tone, to match my eyes. Just for a week? That is a disappointment, at least a year
If you could choose one word to focus on for 2017, what would it be?
Just one word. Oh no, I need more and in two different languages. Focussing is not my strong point. And so my answer in english is “no idea” which would be in Swiss German “chei Arnig”.
What was one thing you learned last year that you added to your life?
I learned that I have a handicap, and became a fully fledged member of the Ministry for Silly Walks. Everyone had noticed it for some time, except for me, and I was puzzled. Everything has a silver lining. I have a psychedelic walking cane for support and now and again I am asked if I need help by all sorts of interesting people.When I flew to London there was a young man in an airport uniform helping me to climb the stairs to the aircraft. What could possibly be better.
If life was ‘just a bowl of cherries’… which fruit other than a cherry would you be..?
A banana, it is the only fruit I actually eat, unless Mr. Swiss bakes one of his famous apple pies.
What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week was nothing really special, although two sisters were drowned in a swimming pool in the Brit TV soap Eastenders and Mr. Swiss DVD’ed a Brit police series called Bailey and Scott, about two female police detectives, whose boss was also a lady. It was quite good.
This week I am looking forward to a quiet week, no excitement, no Christmas, No New Year and everything going to plan.
