i do enjoy these theme meme things... we learn such a lot about our neighbors.

i love the 'things that make me like my friends one... "they can cook better than me"' and right after that, that they feed you. good food is one of the best glues for bonding friends.

I enjoyed reading this meme, Claire. Nice to know more about you. I can't promise just now, but will see, maybe I can fit it in to do this in the next few days. I'll let you know.

I'm glad you'd like to come visit in Canada again. I'd love that and hope to spend more time together this time around.

Lovely meme - and yup - I'll rise to the challenge! Forgive me if I steal your horsie ones! ;-

I love reading your memes Claire. Your sense of humour always makes me chuckle :)
I'm not much for doing memes myself though (I'm boring).
We have a friend (Nancy) who, like you, hates to cook, so she loves to have other friends feed her and we all love to do it. Probably your friends love to feed you too :)
Our Nancy is 'The Cream Puff Queen' - she makes wonderful cream puffs and brings them to us all from time to time.

Grannyfiddler, I just managed to make a pot of pasta, sometimes its just the whole effort of opening a packet. . . .
Alice, look forward to it, hopefully we'll have a grand walk with Reba!!
Lisa, brill!!
kerri, I try to repay 'food' with fresh veggies or a pot of flowers/cuttings.
