I was reading these questions and answers very seriously and so when I got to number 36 I had to laugh.
47 is a good number (I was born in '47) but I shall put my mind to three more questions of course!
I'm off to the bathroom, colour? thanks for asking, a beautiful pine wood lacquered lower half and pale mint everywhere else.

get a life, Deborah, instead of puting comments on this blog ...well yes ....
May I test it on my Spanish pen friend in Barcelona? I would like it if she sent me the same in Spanish, it is true, when you are learning a language it is really fun to answer questions
