What is the best present someone has ever given you?
For my last birthday my Parents commissioned a pastel portrait of my special doggy Dulcie! Something I can treasure forever! And while I'm talking about my doggy she too was a very special gift at a time when I was feeling very sad! I think the doggy beats the portrait :-)
Do you collect anything?
I've been collecting fans since I was about 6/7 I have lots some of which are hand painted and vintage. I started collecting porcelain dolls when I was 18 though sadly they are on top of my wardrobe at present as i have no where to display them and I collect Willow Tree ornaments.
What do you want more than anything right now?
to have my own house again and all the fun of making it a home
Were you named after anyone?
I was the opposite of named after anyone. When my parents were choosing names every one they chose my 7 year old brother would say " you can't have that name there's a girl at school who has that name and I hate her!" Then Mum thought of Tanya but my dad and brother pointed out that being a cockney she would often say " come here and I'll tan ya bottom for ya" My brother and I weren't given middle names but we chose our own later and I chose after much deliberation Emma-Claire.
Whats your favourite ice-cream flavour?
