While my brain has resulted into some kind of Mini Eggs flavoured soup (yay Easter holidays) I thought I’d write one of these old skool meme type blog posts that I saw over on Mummy Barrow’s blog (originating from Nickie at I am Typecast). Let’s get started shall we? And if you fancy giving it a go, give me a shout on Twitter so I can have a read innit.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
About 2 weeks ago when I failed my driving test. I held it together from the examiner telling me and the drive home but as soon as I opened the front door, I had a little sob. And another when my other half and Noah presented me with flowers for just giving it a good go.
IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE A FRIEND OF YOURSELF?
I like to think so, I really hope I’m a good friend but I’m utterly shit at replying to texts and I hate talking on the phone.
DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
Of course not.
WHAT’S THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Their mood and their eyes.
SCARY MOVIE OR HAPPY ENDINGS?
I couldn’t tell you the last time I watched a film the whole way through but I wouldn’t watch a scary film if you paid me.
Tomatoes growing on the vine take me right back to childhood and making dens in the garden. Original Dove shower gel because it reminds of that first, very sore bath after Noah was just born at the hospital. Noah’s hair, admittedly it smells more like sweaty boy now but I still can’t resist sniffing his head on the rare occasions I get a cuddle.
WHAT’S THE FURTHEST YOU’VE EVER BEEN FROM HOME?
Maybe Naples? I realise that’s not very far at all!
DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL TALENTS?
Erm, I can fit my fist in my mouth.
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP?
From a pretty young age I wanted to a tattoo artist, but I just don’t have the patience (read talent) for it.
HOW MANY COUNTRIES HAVE YOU BEEN TO?
Not enough, maybe 4 or 5.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE / WORST SUBJECT IN SCHOOL?
Favourite was English or art, worst was maths.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE DRINK?
The first coffee of the morning, every time.
WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE NAMED YOUR CHILDREN?
I named him Noah when I was about 5 months pregnant and luckily he looked like a Noah when he was born. I’m not in the least bit religious but I do have a thing for biblical names and have a list for possible future babies.
WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE YOUTUBERS?
I don’t watch YouTube, but Noah is on there all the time and I can just about tolerate Dan TDM’s voice.
HOW MANY BOYFRIENDS HAVE YOU HAD?
3, but the third I’ve been with for 10 years this year and have a child with so that makes the other 2 look a bit, ya know, childish.
FAVOURITE MEMORY FROM CHILDHOOD?
To be frank, a lot of my childhood wasn’t great because of my mum’s mental health and drinking but I always enjoyed being outside, making dens, catching frogs, hunting for bugs.
TELL US ONE OF YOUR BAD HABITS…
Not listening, pretty often my thoughts are whizzing around my head like a Rolodex and the simple task of taking in more information or a simple “Mum! Mummy, look!” is too much.
