Questions & Answers

This week, the super sweet Mirela of Melli’s Designs tagged me to play along with a fun little game where you give answers to the following questions. So here I go...

1. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
My favourite cities in the world are Edinburgh, Paris and anywhere in Switzerland but as they can all get a bit too chilly in winter I think I'd have to come back to Australia for summer and I would choose either Noosa or the Gerringong/Berry area. But you know, I'm such a happy Sydney girl I'd be just as fine staying where I am :)

2. What is your favourite band?
I don't really have a fav band but looking through my iTunes the ones I enjoy the most are, Jason Mraz, Kate Miller-Heidke, Michael Buble, Bic Runga, Duffy, No Doubt, Elton John and some ABBA thrown in for good measure :)

3. If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be?
I would like to be, not one person in particular, but someone who works with the AIDS orphaned babies at the Watoto Baby Village in Uganda. I love babies and Watoto is a charity that Glen and I love. Two of the little Watoto choir members stayed at our home for a night during their tour a few years ago. My heart cries for all the forgotten children, esp in Africa.

4. Concert or Broadway show?
Broadway show for sure!!!

5. Theme song for your life?
I don't know, that one's way too hard.

6. Would you choose a fancy dinner at a nice restaurant or a picnic in the park?
I'd choose fancy dinner at a nice restaurant, I love eating out and not having to cook or prepare food (feels like that's all I do sometimes) which is why I actually don't love picnics, also because I've got fair skin and I burn in 2seconds flat.

7. Favourite place to shop?
I love little boutiques, gift shops, antique shops and markets. Anywhere where you feel like you could stumble over a treasure!

8. Favourite movie?
I think my all time fav which I've seen more times than I dare to remember is 'The Sound of Music'. Oh don't get me started....... here I go...... 'the hills are alive, with the sound of music....'.

  1. glad you took part of this game,loved reading about different things i didn't know about you,i really love the question about who will you want to be for the day..that is the sweetest thing Janette:) i see you love to shop at the markets and antique shops too. Love it thanks for sharing XXX

  2. I just typed a big comment and Blogger had en error - grrr... here goes again :) I really enjoyed reading your answers to the questions Janette. All those places you listed in #1 sound lovely (that image is so lovely) but I do think we are lucky to be living in Australia. Your response to #3 shows what a caring and compassionate person you are. I remember my mother-in-law talking about the Watoto choir after she saw them perform. A friend of mine and her husband spent a year in Africa volunteering in orphanages - such an eye opening experience. And as for The Sound of Music, I've seen it too many times to count too and can never help but sing along :) Enjoy your day sweet xx

  3. Hey Janette,

    Great post, I especially loved learning about the Wototo Baby Village.


    PS: Some days I wonder if I might have morphed into Maria from TSOM....Am a newly-minted step-mum; I've recently made an outfit for the eldests' dress-up day for school out of a curtain!; my partner is a wonderfully warm man but he is a Department Head of Physical Education and does blow a whistle; we often have sing-alongs in the car, my family often say "How do we solve a problem like Felicity?"....

  4. Aw, Thank you for tagging me, Nellie at McCarthy designs has also tagged me for this so I best hop to it & get writing my post. Its fun to learn more about you!!!

  5. I love the Sound of Music! I've loved it from the moment I first watched it long time ago (skipping age deets!) I'm actually surprised someone else loves it too! =) cheers to that! you are fabulous!

  6. my goodness we could be twins hahaha, your taste in music and movies delightful and paris oh paris one day xox

  7. Hi Janette, I really enjoyed reading your answers to the questions. We saw the Wototo Choir when they were here in Orange and I have attended Colour a few times where Marilyn was a guest speaker. The kids are so gorgeous and so full of life. It is a beautiful ministry and one day you may get over there to help out yourself. xx

  8. It's great to learn a little more about you! I am so with you on the Sound of Music. Love it!!! The Wototo Baby Village sounds like an amazing place - I hadn't heard of it before. Those poor little souls.

  9. These little games are great, it's a fun way to get to know someone a bit better. Love your answers..Do you know, I've never watched The Sound of Music?! And I LOVE musicals..My little girls favourite at the moment is The Slipper & The Rose, it's just been released on DVD. I'm with you on choosing Broadway too..Rachaelxx

  10. It's fun to learn a little more about you. I too adore the Sound of Music - thankfully my little girls will watch it with me!

  11. Great answers, Edinburgh and Paris are amazing too. Really there are far too many places to properly choose. I'd love to live in Delhi and Beijing and Hong Kong too amongst others!!

    There is nothing more rewarding than charitable work or contributing in whatever form possible. One of the reasons I'm (privately) not a fan of unnessary excess in my line of work is that the money could be so much better spent! I'm off to check out Watoto Baby Village.

    Hope you've had a lovely day! xx

  12. I am so sorry to take so long to comment here Janette, it has been a long week. What a fabulous Q & A and I am so very not surprised by many of your answers. You really are one of the loveliest most genuine people I have 'met'. Very special indeed my friend. I love Sound of Music too:) Hugs ~ Tina xx


Thanks! I love reading your comments! Jxx
