Ten words to sum up your working life to date ...
Nine things you can see from where you're sitting ...
A Siamese cat lounging on a fence (actually it’s a ceramic tile)
A rather fetching antique oil lamp (it works too!)
My lovely comfy leather reading chair
A sleepy black cat (a real one this time)
A small stepladder (to reach those unreachable books on the top shelf)
A church steeple
Eight minutes to prepare a meal. What's it going to be ?

Cantankerous (describes me perfectly – especially when I am woken up too early)
Four places you'd run away to ...
Scotland (the further north the better)
Three books you've bought recently ...
And Cannot Come Again – Simon Bestwick
