Come Dine With…Pondering Parenthood

Every Friday I’ll be posting another dinner guest wish list in my guest series, Come Dine With…

This series asks all sorts of bloggers who their dream dinner guests are, and why. As you’ll find out there is quite an eclectic mix! This weeks dinner guest wish list is from Julie. You can find Julie’s blog over at Pondering Parenthood.

So without further ado, let Come Dine With… Pondering Parenthood

Come Dine With...Pondering Parenthood


Anne Boleyn – I find her fascinating. I’d love to know what it was like to be the wife of Henry VIII and what really went on with her alleged affairs and extra finger! I’d also like to know about what it was like living at court, and hear all about the clothing, food and activities of the day.

Barack Obama – I think he’d be an inspiration to listen to, as well as being absolutely hilarious! I’d like to hear his views on Trump and the general state of America and the rest of the world at the moment. I think he’d mediate and guide the dinner conversation really well, too.

Queen Elizabeth II – I have a caveat on this one, though. I’d insist on her being the ‘real’ Elizabeth; the one that her friends and family get to see, and I’d want her to speak honestly about what her life has been like and how she feels about her role.

Tim Bentinck – This might seem like a strange choice for a young(ish) woman, but I’ve been an avid listener of The Archers since I was at university and Tim plays David Archer. I’ve heard him speak about his work a couple of times on the radio and TV and he has the most fascinating anecdotes. I’d also like to hear more about how they do all the different sound effects on The Archers, too, as I think some of them are really clever and not at all what you’d expect!

Tim Minchin – Another Tim! I think he’s hilarious and a total genius, too. I’d love to hear about how he writes his songs and what inspires him. I just think he’d be a really interesting chap to talk to.

My maternal grandmother – This one isn’t famous but I couldn’t leave her out. I’ve never met my mum’s mum. She died nearly twenty years before I was born. I’d love to meet and talk to her as she was German and lived in London and raised my mum and her siblings during and just after the Second World War. I think it would be so interesting to hear about her experiences and also what my mum was like as a child!
