Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
The things I do for these challenges 🙂
I decided a photo explains it better than I can.
We sleep so-called nordic. We have a fitted sheet below and a duvet on top. This simplifies making beds and also reduces the ironing problems. The sheets do not have to be ironed, because they fit perfectly onto the mattress and there are no top sheets, not necessary.
Have you stolen a street sign before?
I do it all the time.
I managed to screw this one off the wall when I spent a week in New York City. It is nice to bring home a souvenir to show people that you were really there. The customs guy at the airport asked a few questions, but he let me got with a warning not to do it again.
I have quite a nice collection at home. My favourites are the one from Champs Elysee in Paris and Oxford Street in London. I was also quite happy with the sign showing مراكش which I managed to smuggle out of Morocco.
Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?
No, because I do not really read newspapers or magazines in real life, only online. My dad was good at that. As soon as he saw the dotted line he would cut it out, as he was sure it might come in useful one day, so he had a box full of coupons. . He was always getting free jars of coffe and tea, when the special offer was available for the coupons that he could use now and again.
Do you have freckles?
No, only brown spots on the hands that seem to arrive when you become a golden oldie, but that is all part of the getting old game I suppose.
What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week my neurologist and my doctor both decided I was able to drive my car for a further two years – it is law in Switzerland to get a doctor’s allowance when you reach the age of 70. I passed the idiot test and so there was no problem.
This week I am looking forward to at last making an appointment for the hairdresser to get my hair cut and I will take the car with me. I drove today after almost two years. It was as if I had never stopped driving, so now everyone tells me I should keep in practice.
