60 Things

I nicked this list off Sandra's blog! Some of the questions have odd phrasing - think it's the translation from Swedish to English. Us girls love listing random things, don't we? x

1. How old are you in five years? 35 (gulp)
2. Who did you spend at least two hours with today? My desk mate.
3. How tall are you? I vaguely remember someone measuring me as 157cm.
4. What is the last movie you saw? 30 Minutes or Less. Had to pause it I was cracking up so much.
5. Who called you last? My boss
6. Who did you called last? My boss.
7. What was the last text message you received? “You are the best pre-paid deal at the moment.” Had previously texted my boss to say I’d got him the best pre-paid 3G data deal on the market and that was his reply. Ha. We kid!
8. Do you prefer calling or texting? I get so far with BBM and Whatsapp and then I end up calling people when it comes to plans!

14. What is your favorite place? Hmmmm, any leafy London park. Or my bed. Or my parents backyard with my dogs in my lap.
15. What place do you prefer the least? I used to panic in open spaces funnily enough. Couldn't bear to go to the country cuz I thought I would be bored senseless. My heart longs for big bustly cities but suddenly I’m craving trips in snowy mountains.
16. Where do you think you will find yourself in ten years? Hopefully living in a bright, lofty apartment with lots of natural night, a timber staircase and a tall library crammed with books. And hopefully a glossy white Labrador will follow me around between rooms and sit by my feet while I make tea.
