Number 10: My eyes are....


much better now than 25 years ago! I had lasik surgery a few years ago and now I see 20/20. However I still need to wear reading glasses. I have often had compliments on my eyes, but to me they are the first thing to react to allergies! They itch and tear up, and many a day has been spent with them being swollen half shut. Fortunately though I can see, therefore I am very grateful to my eyes for allowing to see all things everywhere.

Number 9: My favourite mode of transportation is...

...the streetcar. Sometimes I use the bus or the subway train, but I love the streetcar. I usually take 2 streetcars to get to work, and to get home during the week. I get a monthly TTC Metropass sent to me and it is good for buses, trains and streetcars.

However once the warmer weather appears I like to ride my bike. It is a great way for me to get exercise, and it costs little to run and maintain. The annual tune up and a can of oil is really all you need.

Number 8: On Monday morning you can find me...


...drinking tea on my way to work, from my Thermos(C) mug.

Being English, of course I love my tea! However, as you see pictured here it is just a Canadian tea bag. I LOVE it when someone from back home sends me a box of English tea. There is such a difference.

Number 7: I am at my happiest when ....

...I talk to my sister, Lorna.

It's funny that as we were growing up, we didn't like each other very much. Now as adults we are best friends. And since our mother died in 2004 we have become even closer. Lorna has a laugh like no other. My mum used to call it common, but to me it is music to my ears!

Number 6: Something I always do...


Every day I come home from work the first thing that I always do is to turn on my computer to check my email. Having my family in other parts of the world I wonder if I will hear from my son in Korea, my sisters and brother in England, my cousins in Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa. I also have friends in Thailand, Malta, Spain, and the United States of America.
