Greetings, from overheated Cambridge!  What's with all this hot weather?  Japan and points East are experiencing extreme wet and flooding, but we have barely a drop; where's the fun in that?  The ground is so hard, i don't think any serious gardening is really an option.  Just have to wait. Seriously, it cannot last forever.

This Friday Five is an oldie that i i think i missed.

1. Where did you grow up and do you miss it?
Well, from tiny to about 17, it was lovely but dangerous Malaya (2 and a bit to around six and a half) and then flea-bitten Aden to until we left  - it wasn't brilliant then but what an unholy mess it is there now.  Yes, Malaya was lovely and mainly a great start to my memory.  Nobody who lived in Aden (except the Forces, who were there in short bursts) could say they liked it.  Oh, there were some good family times but i really did not like Aden and was glad to go.
2. Which are your three favorite words in the dictionary and why?
Peace, love and serenity.  Violent times and places are so disruptive and horrid - we all need love of some description and i value serenity, even if i don't always manage it!
3. What is a vegetarian dish that you really like?
Cauliflour Cheese, Tomato & Basil Soup and Roast Potatoes!
4. What do you do when you have a misunderstanding with your friend?
i rarely fall out with friends and any 'misunderstanding' would be fairly minor, wrong timing or some such.  i have had a couple of very serious falling outs and it took a while to regain the friendships to keep in touch; one with reservations and one long-distance.  But the trust is thin.
5 What do you daydream about?
i rarely daydream; filling my time instead with reading, DVDs and the computer.

We are such complicated things, are we not?  Yet strangely predictable in our narrow, violent and arrogant ways.
Enjoy your weekend!
