Q & A

I have been tagged by Penny from AResidence in answering the following questions. I believe the original MeMe was started by Kerry Jean Lister and has got thousands (well, maybe I exaggerate slightly) of bloggers involved.

According to the Guardian (which is where the original interviews that this meme is based on come from) the results put you into 1 of 3 categories - just a note! I pay my way at the bar!!

a. ‘KNOB’ b. ‘nice person’ c. ‘I’d go for a pint with youers’ (yours?)

Which living person do you most admire, and why?
Anyone that can get rid of creepy crawlies.

When were you happiest?
Can't choose just once - Wedding Day, Birth of my 3 children and the day my Dad got his MBE.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
When I told the milkman, my Mum wasn't in and she was stood behind me - I was 23 at the time.

Aside from property, what’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought?
That 23 foot white tin box that sits on my drive that we tow behind the car and sleep in when we've got a perfectly good 5 bedroom house! But I love it!

What is your most treasured possession?
Wedding ring and my Dad's wedding ring - I love wedding rings!

Where would you like to live?
Galway, West Coast of Ireland.

What’s your favourite smell?
Burning Wood. And Jo Malone, Orange Blossom.

Who would play you in the film of your life?
Julia Roberts - I'm sure she'll be ringing me later to arrange.

What is your favourite book?
Anne of Green Gables or Erich Segal, Doctors (no-one has ever heard of it!)

What is your most unappealing habit?
Picking my baby's nose - we all do it right?

What would be your fancy dress costume of choice?
It used to be Wonder Woman but now I'm really not sure (Jane, you have put me off!) - Perhaps a Rubiks Cube - I like to stand out.

What is your earliest memory?
Moving house, going calling on a neighbour's house asking to play out with her son. Turned out the son was actually a labrador - he was never that good at playing off ground tick!

What is your guiltiest pleasure?
Doing nothing - I don't get to do it enough.

What do you owe your parents?
Probably a whole lot of apologies for those teenage years.

To whom would you most like to say sorry, and why?
Again, probably my parents for those teenage years and my children for not playing with them often enough.

What or who is the greatest love of your life?
My husband - Aw!

What does love feel like?
A really cozy blanket that you want everyone to experience.

What was the best kiss of your life?
The one at the altar as we proclaimed married and the one I gave each of my 3 girls as they were born.

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
Oh my god and Bloody Hell. You know when your daughters say it that its your fault!

What is the worst job you’ve done?
Assistant Manager at McDonalds - be nice to those people, they've probably got really sore legs, been working all hours and have had some chav giving them lip about waiting more than 30 seconds for a burger "with none of that shit on".

If you could edit your past, what would you change?
I probably would have started blogging earlier.

What is the closest you’ve come to death?
The day at the end of term when the school reports were handed out. Still feel terror in my belly!

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
My business, Aardvark Cakes - I still can't believe I do that for a living.

When did you last cry, and why?
I cry all the time - any TV programme - I know I was watching DIY SOS last night so I can pretty much guarantee it was then.

How do you relax?
Caravanning, having a brew and a read with a cake - I'm easily pleased.

What single thing would improve the quality of your life?
More time with my husband and more parties!

What is the most important lesson life has taught you?
Don't be grumpy and fill every day as much as I can - and I do. And take more photos - I know I've used this one before.

I am tagging Cara at FrecklesFamily, Marion at ToddlerinTow, Beth at PlasticRosaries, Stella at MsMac - Please join in if you like.
