I Mustache You Some Questions

So, I’ve been nominated by Lory from The Emerald City Book Review for this post and it looked like fun so I decided to join in even though I am already four reviews behind … ah well, here we go …

Four Names People Call Me Other Than My Real Name

1) Susie-Bella (my Mum – she also calls the pup Theo-bella)

4) Sophie (though not so much lately)

Four Jobs I’ve Had

3) Going to the Edinburgh Festival
4) Lots of babies arriving in the next few months – lots of knitting to do.

Four Things I’m Always Saying:

1) So, I read this thing on the Guardian website …

  1. Good luck with that house hunt! Oxford is another place I would love to be right now. (As long as it's not snowing.) Is an English breakfast muffin what we call an English muffin, or something else?

  2. No, I think it is an English muffin, I just only ever have them from breakfast. Ironically though I first worked out I liked them when I was working in Michigan. Thank you – will need help with the house-hunt, there's a lot of competition out there!

  3. Happy house hunting! I know what a stressful, annoying process that can be (or is that just me?) And great answers! I'm still plugging away at my post, but I hope to have it up by this afternoon.

  4. Fascinating lists, not much to comment on except two things – Bananas, I so agree! Curiously though, until I was about 15 or 16 I used to eat them, now I cannot even stand the smell of them (even in their skins!)
    Whereas Pineapple – probably an all time favourite!
    Good luck with the house hunting!

  5. Only just seen this! My best friend went to uni in Oxford and knows loads of people down there so I can always ask her if she knows of anyone/anything? Thanks for tagging me, I'll get to work on my post asap! 🙂

  6. Lovely to hear from you! Hey, if you know anyone who knows anyone, all help is appreciated! I am very keen to find a new place to live! Look forward to reading your post 🙂 ps – I meant to comment to let you know, well done for finding it!
