If I were a CAR, I would be an Aston Martin – elegant and timeless.
If I were a FLOWER, it would be delphiniums. I love the way they stand so majestically in my garden.
If I were a FRUIT, it would be pomelo – hard to find but a real catch when you can. I like mine drizzled with ginger syrup.
If I were a CITY, I would choose Hong Kong – old times never die.
If I were a BIRD I would be a woodpecker – the sound is so fabulous and you can be heard anywhere.
If I were a PLANET, Mars – to look back at earth and see what a wonderful world we live in.
If I were an ICE-CREAM FLAVOUR – honeycomb – I adore honey and bees!
If I were an ISLAND – Necker Island – it’s a constant party.
If I were a TREE, I would be the Jacaranda with its far from understated purple flowers.
If I were a COCKTAIL – Martini – smooth and irresistible.
If I were a DANCE – the Tango – fabulously sexy dancing!
If I were a MUSICAL INSTRUMENT, it would be the guitar. As a family, we always play guitars around the fireplace.
If I were a GAME I would be Pie Face – I love to see cream all over friends’ faces!
If I were a COLOUR I would choose to be Yellow – super happy.
