List 11 random facts about yourself
Heres my answers to the questions asked by Laura…
1. What made you want to start blogging?
Id been an avid follower of the Taming Twins blog for some time, I originally started a food blog over at InspirebyRebecca a few years ago which was self hosted, soon after I got pregnant and the updates dried up as i was too busy and tired and my healthy eating went out the window. When I had Max I decided to start up a blog again ‘in my spare time’ (laughs). I should go self hosted again with this blog, but l’m building on it first.
2. What was your favourite holiday?
My favourite holiday was actually my wedding aswell. We got married in Zanzibar in Africa and then honeymooned in Serengeti on safari, it was an incredible experience!
3. Would you ever go on Big Brother?
Never, I hate the confrontational people and those that just want all the limelight, its annoying – although I watch celebrity big brother – I cant stand the normal series.
4. Are you a good judge of character?
I believe so yes. Quite often if I’ve made my mind up about someone it doesn’t really change.
5. Have you ever been banned from a public place?
Never, I’m quite a goody two shoes!
5. What do you consider is the most important appliance in a house?
Kettle (obviously) I mean, Im a tea addict, I dont know how but I stopped drinking tea the minute I discovered I was pregnant and to this day I still dont know how I did it. I have not one but two teabags in each cup of yorkshire tea I like it so strong!
6. Do you believe in kharma?
Yes most definitely.
7. What was the last thing to make you feel happy?
Every day just seeing my son.
8. Is it criminal to wear socks with sandals? Random ha!
More than criminal, my old male geography teacher used to do it, with pink socks aswell.
9. Whats your go to shop when looking for clothes for yourself?
Topshop used to be the place, but, now I’m too old and fat and mumsy for that shop. I tend to buy a selection of items, I am fortunate enough to own a few items of designer shoes and bags which I then mix with primark, reiss, whistles and new look!
10. Do you have any secret family recipes?
Yes, my grandfather is an excellent cook and makes the best layered chocolate vanilla and nutmeg cake. He owned a butchers in our village and his sausages were known as being the best around, the sausage mix is still a secret and even I cant get it from him.
11. Do you have a strong local accent?
I dont think so, but others always say ‘ahhh, you’re from Birmingham’ which I hate.
