This will be the third time I have published this post and I apologise if you’ve received notification for it. I’m having some issues with my site which has meant that I have lost this post on two occasions. Normally, I would write it off as a lost cause but as others are linking back to my site, it’s only fair that I provide a back link to them so here we go again:
Half way through the week which means it’s almost another week down until I go back to work, boooo! This week is all about cramming in as many activities as possible and making the most of my last few weeks. We’ve already been out for lunch with a friend and then yesterday, we visited a farm for the first time which T really enjoyed (post to follow).
But I digress. This post is about the Sunshine Blogger Quiz. The lovely Kelly-Anne at Mimi Rose and Me has nominated me to answer 10 questions that she has chosen – take some time to check out her blog. I love these posts as it gives me a chance to write about things that I wouldn’t otherwise share.
So without further ado, here are the 10 questions that Kelly-Anne gave me along with my answers:
1.What’s the best thing about blogging for you?
The best thing about blogging is being able to say out loud what I was thinking. There have been so many times that I have played a conversation in my head about what I would say on a particular subject but have never shared my views. Blogging allows me to do this.
2. What is your happiest memory?
I’m not sure that I can choose one so I think I’ll have to go with two.
The birth of my son. Although it is tied in with one of the most frightening times of my life, it is still up there as one of my happiest memories. How we managed to make a little human being, and bring him into the world, just blows my mind!
Our wedding day. Every part of our wedding day was personalised to us and I DIY’d most of it too. It’s really nice to look back and know that I made the cake, the centre pieces, invitations, etc, and that every part has a story behind it.
3. Do you have a favourite season?
Summer! Not that we see much of it up North but I prefer when I don’t have to hide an outfit with a coat or when I can get away with wearing sunglasses to hide my dark circles from lack of sleep! There’s also something about the sun shining which makes me feel more motivated and I definitely need motivation at times!
4. Are you an early bird or a night owl?
Both! I am terrible for not getting enough sleep. When I’m not working, I’ll get up early morning with T but then stay up late working on blog related things. When I’m back at work, I get up early for work, as I work out of town, but then I’ll be up all hours marking.
5. If you have children, share your favourite photo of them.
It’s so hard to choose just one but I love this photo. Those eyes! My heart melts.
6. What’s your favourite TV programme?
Criminal Minds. I’m not particularly a fan of the gore but I love the characters – Penelope is my favourite. I find the profiling fascinating (I’m sure there’s not a lot of truth in it but I can pretend) and it always has fab storylines – although some do freak me out so no wonder I have night terrors.
7. How do you relax?
I found this question really hard. Does that tell me that I don’t relax very often? I think I relax the best when T sleeps out and I’m couched in front of the television watching a movie with a G&T in hand. Boring eh?
8. Tea or coffee?
It really depends on my mood and the type of tea or coffee I’m being offered. I do love a good latte so that would be my first choice.
9. What inspires you?
People who speak their mind. We might not always agree with what those people are saying but I like people who are not afraid to speak out. There’s nothing worse than somebody who follows the crowd or says nothing (especially at the detriment of others).
10. What would be your dream holiday?
To take a USA tour. I’d love to go back to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon whilst also visiting other parts of the States – New York City, New Orleans, Washington, etc.
The blogs I am nominating are:
Lynette at Reclusive Fox
Samantha at Porridge and Parenting
Sophie at Mama Mei
Rebecca at Kizmetcava
Karina at Mum’s the Nerd
Naomi at Me Becoming Mum
