Ella's Meme

I think you all know enough about me by now but I can't resist a meme - so here goes....

Take a look at your walls at home. Which picture/object is your favorite and why? Bonus points if you post a picture.
We have a few pictures on our walls. My favourite is our son in his cap and gown when he graduated from university. P's is an original painting by an English artist who he studied at school. I bought it from him.

What is/are your favorite perfume(s)?
Channel No 5. I've tried others but I always go back to Channel.  

How many pairs of shoes do you own?  Have you ever hidden new shoes from your spouse? 
Lots and lots. Dare not count them. I have some from years and years ago. Couple I haven't even worn and still in their boxes and yes I have hidden one pair from P. I've just decided to go through them and take most to charity. I can't wear heels any more and I tend to wear the same 3 0r 4 pairs now.

Snacks - Sweet, Salty, or Both?  If you could choose 1 snack, and it magically had no calories, what would it be? 

I try not to snack but if I had to choose it would be lemon drizzle cake and dark chocolate. I love dark chocolate.

What are your favorite cut flowers?
I like Irises and roses but my favourite flower is the humble Daffodil. 

Without using a real name, describe one person in your life with whom you have a hard time being patient.
I'm quite a patient person (or at least I think so) but there was a guy at work who always thought he was right about everything and wouldn't listen to anyone.

What food do you love that your spouse hates?  What food does your spouse love that is "yecch" to you?
There is nothing I eat that P actually hates. He eats tinned tuna and I can't stand it or the smell and black pudding.

What is a song you associate with meeting your honey? 

Not one particular song but I'd only been going out with P for a couple of weeks when he got hard to get tickets to see The Three Degrees which was one of my favourites groups at that time 

Do you have a favorite movie that you like to watch every few months or once a year?
Shawshank Redemption and A Good Year with Russel Crowe.

What collection(s) do you have?  How did your collection start? (Add a picture if you like.)
I've mentioned before that I used to collect unusual chess pieces and orchids but nothing now.

Where would you like to go on your next vacation?  Is there somewhere else on your Bucket List?
There are too many places on my bucket list to pick one. I would still like to get together with friends here and from across the pond. Maybe one day.  

If you could only buy clothes at one store, at what store would you shop? 

I shop at a lot of different places and don't have a favourite.

What gift(s) from your spouse have been the most loved and appreciated?

P's given me lots of gifts over the years but the one that is most loved and appreciated is our son. He's priceless.

Name one item of your spouse's clothing that you would love to throw away.
A pair of black jeans. At least he doesn't wear them out now but he still wont throw them away and I dare not - or maybe I should:)

What is the submissive action (or inaction) of which you are most proud?

Now it's keeping quiet when he's swearing at another driver.

Ella - thanks for a wonderful meme. You can do another one for us please:)

Not around for a few days.

Have a good week.

Hi Ronnie, I enjoyed reading your answers. I'm a Chanel girl too and am with you on tuna, though I do like black pudding and I'm more of a milk chocolate fan. Love your answer to the first question and the gift :)

Hi Ronnie, loved your answers to this meme and your gift from P is a lovely answer.

hugs abby

Minelle Labraun said...

Priceless gift P gave you!
I would carefully consider whether to throw out those pants..... The soanking may be more than you bargained for.... Then again..... :-)

Hermione said...

I love Chanel and dark chocolate too.


Leigh Smith said...

I forgot about Chanel - used to wear that too way before Joy. It seemed like everyone was wearing it and I had to be different, lol.

Dark chocolate, lemon drizzle cake - two of my favs too.

I love the movie A Good Year too. Albert Finney and Russell Crow are such good actors.

Ni Na said...

Hi Ronnie, I loved your answers. Lemon drizzle cake is so delicious, it is a favourite of mine too. Your answer for the favourite gift is the best. I'd choose that answer too. Thank you for sharing.



Ami Starsong said...

We have a great deal in common, especially shoes, films we love, and dark Lindt chocolate. What a great meme.


Cat said...

Love your answers Ronnie...I agree, dark chocolate is the best and anything lemon has my vote also. ;) Hmmm...maybe you should at least hide those jeans and tell P you got rid of could always return them after you get what you want. LOL Thanks for sharing.

Hugs and blessings...Cat

Ronnie, as to your recent Meme. Since in my lifetime I have visited 150 different countries. On my bucket list is a trip to the Moon. Although I have just passed my 82nd Birthday, having been a SPANKO, for 70 years, I still have hopes of doing so.

Lilli Clairmont said...

Black pudding? Hmmm, I'm not familiar with that, but it certainly doesn't sound appetizing. I'm with you on the dark chocolate...yum! I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to throw out the jeans if I was you...then again, there are times I might be foolish enough. lol

ronnie said...

Roz - I've just been given a small bottom of Channel chance, quite like it but not as much as No 5. Thank you.

Lindy - The son is a darling, one of the best but I would say that:) Thanks.

Abby -That's what I keep telling myself whenever I have a square. Thanks.

Minelle - Then again, I would probably like it:) Thanks.

Hermione - Tried lots of dark chocolate but Lindt is my favourite. Thanks.

SG - We have a lot in common then, perfume, films and snacks:) Thanks.

Nina - I have only one child so he is very precious. Thank you.

Ami - Not many shoes left now, gone to charity, a little sad but I hope someone gets some joy from them, There were some lovely pairs. Thanks.

Cat - LOL. That would get me spanked twice, like it:) Thanks.

Jan -They certainly are. Black pudding should be banned:) Thanks.

Red - I love a meme. Thank you.

SOTB - The moon, wow. No not for me. Thank you.

Lilli - Black pudding is type of blood sausage. No, I don't think I will throw them out, maybe hide them as Cat suggested:) Thanks.



Ella said...

Oh, Ronnie! I finally found you. Hooray! I have been searching for a while now. Thank you for doing my meme. It makes me very happy to know how many people enjoyed it. My biggest joy, though, is the people that it has let me come to know.

Ella Ever After

Terpsichore said...

I do so love reading these :-) I love your answer for the best gift you received from your spouse. Lovely :-) Hugs

Ella - Hello. We have to thank you for giving us this meme, we all loved it. As I said you can do another one for us please:)

Terps - Thanks. He is rather priceless:)
