DREAM… What was your last dream? My last dream was about me eating a brick? I know!! Go figure…

EXCEL... What are you great at? I would never say what I think I am good at, because then people will be watching to see if it is true…. ;)

X-RAY… Any broken bones? Thankfully, I am a chicken so never climbed trees as a kid, or tried to jump a home made ramp on my bike… so no, I am all in one piece for now!

YOUNGER DAYS… What’s your earliest childhood memory? I remember my first holiday when I was 6, it was to Menorca and I did a wee in the hotel pool.

ZOO…. If you were an animal, which one would you be? I would be an elephant because I never forget and I have big ears.
