K - Kids: Nope!
L - Living arrangements: Solo
M - Music you love: Classics and most Country and Western.
N - Nicknames: Never had one and I refuse to answer to any.
O - Overnight hospital stay at hospital: Too many times to list -  my claim to fame is three hospitalisations in Japan.
P - Pet Peeve: not sure that I have any of these really
Q - Quote from a movie: "I hardly ever watch movies so ……asked my little sister who happened to call and she said “I don’t know – will have to get back to you”!!!!   Must be a genetic defect here.
R - Right handed or left: Right
S - Siblings: Three, 2 brothers and 1 sister
T - Time you wake up: 5:45 is when the alarm goes off ~ and so far this year I have got out when the first alarm rings and turned off the other two back ups!
U - Underwear: Of course
V - Vegetable you dislike: None that I can think of - I love my vegetables

Y - Yummy food you make: I love both baking and cooking but won’t be winning Masterchef any time soon.My Ginger Crunch has been known to collect compliments
X - XRAYS you've had:  it feels like a gazillion and the stack of them is several inches high but the ones I love the most are the regular chest xrays which show up my pacemaker and the helpful radiologist says "you've got a pacemaker in your right upper chest"   -  isn't it lovely of them to tell me this!
Z - The best place to visit: For you? New Zealand, of course! For me? I have a notebook full of my “must see +must do +must eat” in the UK and hope to do the grand tour when I retire in 9 years time. Yes – I’m counting down already.

And now you know my ABC won't you join this game with me.   Leave me a message so I can visit your blog and get to know you too.
Well, that's it for tonight - I'm off to wash my dinner dishes and settle down for some serious stitching.   Tonight I conquer the England section of HCS.
 
Good night all.
