Q&A Time

It’s a sunday and while little T is busy playing with two of her lovely friends which means, if I type fast enough I might manage to reply to the lovely Sophie’s Q&A meme today.


Where in the world would you most like to be right now?

Anywhere warm and where the sun shines would be really lovely.  We’ve been having too much rain and grey clouds, it’s absolutely driving me nuts.  Can’t wait for the 1st of December so I can start putting Christmas decorations up (just to brighten things up a bit) without worrying that others might think I’m mad for doing so!

What do you love most about having your blog?

I love blogging because this is my “me” time.  I don’t really have much interests, I’m honestly a boring person.  I just like to read and write.  I don’t have any sport.  My husband joined our local gig-club, when I told a close friend about it, she asked me “What about you?  Isn’t there anything you can also do without S and T too?  Your “me” time away from them?” And I thought about it … Blogging is my “me” time and even though it doesn’t take me out, I do “meet” and interact with other people as well, more so, because I have conversations with people from all over, not just on my current location!  Isn’t that lovely?

Who is the person that you most admire?

Oh dear, this is a hard one?  At the moment, I really admire my in-laws.  They may be in their mid-80s but are as active as ever.  I want to be like them if by chance, I’m still alive at their age!

What keeps you awake at night?

Paranoid worries over my daughter.

What is your all-time favourite breakfast?

I’m not really a breakfast person.  I guess I got used to rushing out the door in my former life when I used to have a career with just a gulp of coffee while getting ready to go to work.  As they say, old habits die-hard.

Which song makes you smile every time you hear it?

Israel Kamakawiwo’ ole’s version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”.  We played it over our wedding reception, still makes me smile every time I hear it 🙂

If you could go back and give one piece of advice to your fifteen year old self, what would it be?

Don’t hate school too much.  It’s really not that bad.  Don’t worry too much and just enjoy it.  Believe it or not, you’ll actually miss school when you’re a grown-up 😉

 Thanks Sophie!  Really enjoyed answering your questions 🙂

As for the seven bloggers, I’m going to tag the following:


Kate of Did that just happen blog

Tracie of Life in the Wylde West

Sara of Mumturnedmom

Katie of Hurrah for Gin

Josanne of My Toddler Rules

Jhanis of The Vanilla Housewife

My seven questions will be all about blogging:

1.  When and why did you start blogging?

2. Is there any reason behind you blog’s name?

3. If there’s one thing you dislike about blogging, what would it be?

4.  Have you ever thought of quitting your blog?

5.  Have any nasty trolls visited your blog and left comments?  Care to share them?

6.  Have you written any controversial blog-posts?

7.  Have you ever experienced losing your blogging-mojo?  How did you get it back?

 That’s about it folks!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend 🙂

    Thanks so much for joining in! Great to find out a bit more about you. I love ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ too – though it has slightly sadder connotations for me now as it was one of the songs my nan chose to have played at her funeral. Your in-laws sound fab. My parents seem to be getting younger rather than older as the years pass and I very much hope I take after them in that! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday 🙂 xx

    • Pleasure! 😉 Yes, I really do hope my husband and I grow-old like his parents. They are such an inspiration 🙂 x Sorry to hear about your nan.

    Thank you very much for the questions, and I shall do my best. i’m afraid I’m very bad at these things, though. Usually I muck it all up in the end. I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

  3. Kate @ Did That Just Happen?

    Loved the twitter tag! And I like your answers to your questions. I’ll admit that when Mr. T was younger, there was nothing that I did for “me”, because I was so focused on raising him, it’s been nice as he’s gotten older, I’ve been able to discover who I am again!

    • Oh no, you mean I have to wait for little T to grow older to find myself again? 😉 By that time, I’ll be in my 50s! Hahaha. Seriously though, I do know what you mean 🙂

  4. hurrahforgin

    Oh i so miss school!! You don’t know how good you got it do you? I can’t believe you are not a breakfast person though – it’s my best meal of the day – cereal addict here 😉

    I’m nots sure when i will have time to do this Dean but i promise i will try! Super busy right now you see. Thanks for the tag though xx

    • Nope, not a breakfast person. Not even when I was a student 😉 No worries Katie, I understand 🙂 xx

  5. The Vanilla Housewife

    Thanks for the tag! I’m actually experiencing question number 7 LOL

  7. Love this – great to get to know a bit more about you and I love blogging too for being my little bit of “me” time 🙂

    • Yes, it’s great isn’t it 🙂 I also love how it connects us with other people without leaving the comforts of our home 🙂

    Ah, I did this one earlier this week, too – good fun, wasn’t it? Lovely to know more about you. My brother and his wife had that very same song at their wedding, too 🙂
