 "update with eight" feat. Nadeene

What was your first job?
I worked in a delicatessen on weekends when I was in high school, the highlight of my day was being able to make my own lunch with anything I wanted to eat!

What was the last book you read?
Dog Medicine by Julie Barton. It’s a good read for animal lovers.

What was the last movie you have seen?
Bohemian Rhapsody, being a bit of a Queen fan I thoroughly enjoyed it.  

If you could have any three dinner companions who would they be?
Unfortunately, all mine have sadly passed away, but if I could bring them back for a night it would be: Audrey Hepburn, John Lennon & Robin Williams.

If you could choose another career?
I’d love to be a food critic so I could travel the world eating weird and wonderful food while getting paid to do it.

What super power would like to have?
Flying would be very handy.

Whose mind would you most like to read?
This may sound strange, but my parent’s cat Tilly.  She’s a bit of an oddball so I would love to know what makes her feline brain tick & understand her random unpredictable behaviour.

Best award you have ever won? 
It would probably be a Rotary Award for writing excellence in year 10. 

"update with eight" feat. Renée 

What was your first job?
I worked in a pet shop and spent most of my time with the kittens and puppies.

What was the last book you read?
"Ravensbruck" by Sarah Helm. It is a book about life and death in Hitler's concentration camp for women. A harrowing but important read.

What was the last movie you have seen?
"The Bookshop", a lovely British film about a young lady who opens a bookstore. It features Emily Mortimer and Bill Nighy.

If you could have any three dinner companions who would they be?
Miranda Hart, a brilliant comedian. Adele - just because. And Andy Samberg. I think it would be a fun dinner.

If you could choose another career?
A musician.

What superpower would you like to have?
I would love to be able to communicate with animals.

Whose mind would you like to read?
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian author whose books I love and would like to know how she goes about writing them.

I won an award for a poem I wrote when I was eight.
