Getting to know me!

Are you named after anyone?


My mum always knew she would call her daughter Claire, it just happened that my paternal grandma had the same name :-)


When was the last time you cried?


Last week.


Do you have kids?


Yes - mine are 4-legged and have paws.


If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?


Maybe. I'd like to think so, although I don't have many friends, I'm not that social!


Do you use sarcasm a lot?




Will you ever bungee-jump?


Oh, no! I would poo my pants!


What’s your favorite cereal?


Porridge - with peanut butter and liquid chocolate - snickers porridge, it's super yummy.


What is your eye colour?




Scary movie or happy endings?


Depends on my mood - scary will usually win though.


Favorite smells?


My hubby, vanilla, lavendar, my dogs.


Summer or winter?


Summer, if it's not too hot; Winter, if it's not too cold. I prefer Spring and Autumn.

Dominican Republic, a 10 hour flight.

Speed reading.

Exeter, Devon, UK.

Reading, seeing live bands, playing with the dogs.


Do you have any pets?


Yes, 2 rescued dogs. Tilly, a lurcher (R) and Alfie, a greyhound (L).



Favourite film?


I like a lot of different films, impossible to pick a favourite.


Do you have any siblings?


2 half brothers. I had a younger brother who died in 1994.


What do you want to be when you grow up?


I'm 44 so I guess I should be grown up by now, but I'd like to be wealthy enough to buy a house in the country with enough room to open a sanctuary for rescued/retired greyhounds and lurchers (and other animals too!)

Failing that, a librarian.
