Q and A with Christine Gee

Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?

I've always loved that movie Ghost so maybe Whoopi Goldberg, maybe because she's outgoing. She always makes herself outgoing and funny.

What do you think the greatest invention has been?

The vacuum cleaner - it's easy to keep the floor clean.

Do you have any lucky items, objects or traditions?

No, I've got nothing lucky or anything. Nothing in that area.

Is there anything you wished would come back into fashion?

When I was a kid I loved hot pants, but I wouldn't wear them now. I don't mind my old kaftans.

What three things do you think of most each day?

My family (my children and my grandchildren), having good health, and that I wish it would rain.

What's been the best decision you've made in your life so far?

Meeting my second husband and probably my family is my best decision - having a family and my grandchildren.

What do you love most about where you live?

Dalby is a good town to bring up kids. I've got two older boys that were brought up in Dalby. There's plenty of sports here in the town to cater to your children, and there is a bit that goes on here in town that would interest lots of people. A lot of people say they're bored but if you think about it there is quite a lot here. I like Dalby, it's a good town to live in.

What was your first car (or what would you like it to be)?

Probably a little Gemini, but that's going back a long time ago. When I was married I learnt to drive on a Daihatsu, that was the car my husband and I had. And then when we parted I ended up with a little red Gemini.

What do you consider is the most important appliance in a house?

The washing machine, it's quick and easy.

What historical period would you like to live in if you could go back in time?

I was born in the '60s, so I'd probably say about the '70s. I loved all the music, I had a good time, saw some hippies around.
