I was tagged by Rodney from The Journey. This is what I came up with:

1) What’s the most fun work you’ve ever done, and why? (Two sentences max)
Teaching – helping kids to learn and seeing their eyes light up when they catch on. The impression we leave with these youngsters can be very long lasting.
2) Name one thing you did in the past that you no longer do but wish you did? (One sentence max)
As a teenager I used to water ski every summer holiday and I would like to ski again.
3A) What two things would you most like to learn or be better at, and why? (Two sentences max)
Cooking, coaching (life coaching): By learning to be better cook (some might say “that wouldn’t be hard”) I would be able to serve others by providing meals for them. By being a better life coach (I am a qualified life coach) I would be able to meet with others and be able to help them better to achieve their maximum potential.
3B) If you could take a class/workshop/apprenticeship from anyone in the world, living or dead, who would it be and what would you hope to learn? (Two sentences max)
Class: acting. Tutor: Katherine Hepburn

Energetic, happy, supportive

Cycling, cycling, cycling – mountain bike, road bike or tandem

6) Write–and answer–one more question that YOU would ask someone. (Answer in three sentences max)
