Meet me on Monday

I've joined Nat's Natterings: Meet Me On Monday, a BlogHop where participants answer a few questions.
Here goes:

1. What are your New Year's Eve plans?
I'm not planning to go out or attend any free concerts or firework events. I've been there, done that, and I'm too old and broke to get much out of it these days.
Plus, I'd much rather spend it at home with the people I care about.
I had half-planned to cook a roast meal with all the trimmings at home, and watch a glimpse of the Brisbane fireworks from our balcony, but I'm not sure if that will happen.
This Christmas has been weird with sick and/or stranded relatives and loads of visitors, so we're kind of playing it by ear.
Whatever I do, I'll probably be asleep by midnight (if not before) but up early to enjoy the first day of the New Year. After last year - quite frankly, the worst of my life - I am feeling confident that 2011 will be better.
Plus, 2010 wasn't all bad. I've grown a lot, learnt a lot, and achieved so much, I'm proud I came through it with my head held high.
No one puts Bronnie in the corner (anymore ...)

2. How tall are you?
I have honestly never measured myself. I think my passport says 158 cm. Whatever, I'm short compared to most Aussies. My son, who is 9, is already almost as tall as me.

3. What is your favourite pudding flavour?
I don't like pudding, so none. I love real gelato though, especially chocolate, white nougat, tiramisu; or if I'm feeling healthy, sorbet like blood orange, passionfruit and pineapple.

4. What room of the house do you blog the most in?
The office. I have a small TV in here though, and a bed for my dog, so it doesn't feel like work.

5. What is your best physical feature?

Once it would have been my legs - short but toned and in proportion. Alas, those days are gone. Now I would probably say my hair gets the most attention, even though it is desperately in need of a cut and colour!
I'm a typical girl, don't like much about myself ... I'll be working on that in 2011.

That's it! How did I do?

You're linked up right, but down the bottom there's a little code you add to the HTML part of your blog post to show all the links :)
Look forward to your answers next week :)

Hehe you're the same height as me! And yes that isn't very tall is it but as they say it's quality not just quantity ;)
