Questions and Answers

image Ok I’ve avoided it long enough but when I’m tagged to do a Meme I don’t like to let down the person who has tagged me so here goes . . . . Thank you TheBoyandMe – I owe you one!!

I’m to answer the following questions as truthfully as possible:

Which living person do you most admire, and why?

My Mum!  She raised me alone and worked hard to make sure that I had everything that I needed.  She didn’t spoil me, she taught me to be grateful for what I had, to share and to respect others.  My Mum raised me with strong family values and to never let anyone get me down.  With great thanks to my Mum, I have grown up to be a loyal, caring and honest person, I am strong-willed and strong-minded, I will not be defeated – all traits I have learnt from my Mum.  And finally, as a great role model I am the best Mum that I can be to my beautiful children.  Thank you Mum xx

When were you happiest

I am always happiest when I am with my family, they are what matters most in my life.

What was your most embarrassing moment?

Really?  Just one?!?! 

Aside from property, what’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought?

My cars (only one at a time mind you!) would be the most expensive items, other than that probably my charm bracelet and the charms which represent events in my life with my children.

What is your most treasured possession?

My children!!  My photographs, I take photographs every day, I have my whole life in pictures and one look at them takes me right back to the moment, I would be devastated if I ever lost my photographs.

Where would you like to live?

I’m happy living where I am, I love my home and the town.  But if money were no object then I would probably like to live somewhere warm with all my family still around me.  If my whole family could emigrate to Australia together then I would like to do that.

What’s your favourite smell?

Newborn babies and baby lotion, I think I will ALWAYS be broody!

Who would play you in the film of your life?

I’d like Sandra Bullock to play me, I can relate to most characters she has played.  I think she could be me quite easily!

What is your favourite book?

I don’t have one book in particular – The Shopaholic Series (they were written about me I’m sure!) and The Twilight Series because I can lose myself in them.

What is your most unappealing habit?

Swearing – but I’m getting better!

What would be your fancy dress costume of choice?

I have to copy TheBoyandMe on this one, the 1920’s I love that era, its just soooo glamorous and chic!

What is your earliest memory?

Riding in my Formula 1 pedal car in the garden when I was little, standing with my Nanna by the rubbish bins when I had to throw away my dummy, playing in the gypsy style caravan at playschool and eating football crisps and drinking small bottles of milk.

What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Chocolate!  It is definitely my downfall.

What do you owe your parents?

I owe my Mum everything, she has always been generous with her love and understanding, she has always been supportive even when I’ve been in the wrong.  She will always be there for me no matter what.

To whom would you most like to say sorry, and why?

I don’t think I need to say sorry to anyone? Though I do have severe baby brain so I’m SORRY if I have forgotten to say sorry to someone?

What or who is the greatest love of your life?

My family always have and always will be the greatest love of my life.

What does love feel like?

Different types of love feel different – I choose to describe the love for my children.  When I think of my children its like my heart is going to explode, sometimes I look at my children and I cry because I love them so much.  They take me through the very extremes of emotions, happiness, fear, joy, pride, STRESS!  I can’t ever imagine my life without them.  My love for them knows no bounds.

What was the best kiss of your life?

The first kiss as a married woman, the happiest of my life.

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

Nevermind, anyway, oh well, right then – oops there’s quite a few!!!

What is the worst job you’ve done?

The one that only lasted 3 weeks as a PA to a Millionaire – apparently money doesn’t buy you manners or appreciation!

If you could edit your past, what would you change?

Nothing, everything in life happens for a reason and I wouldn’t be who I am today if I hadn’t lived the life I have.  I have no regrets.

What is the closest you’ve come to death?

I had Botulism after eating a dodgy chicken salad sandwich, I was paralyzed from the waist down for nearly two weeks and lost loads of weight.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

My children.

When did you last cry, and why?

Today because I’m overtired and my daughter was driving me mad because she was being very naughty.

How do you relax?

Cuddled up with my children on the sofa, listening to music, reading a book, going for a long walk or just snuggled up with Hubby.

What single thing would improve the quality of your life?

That all my family would have good health and happiness throughout their lives.

What is the most important lesson life has taught you?

It passes by too quickly so make the most of every day.

    Ah, that was a lovely piece to read.

    You take fantastic photographs, and I think when the time is right you should take your hobby and talent further as you have a natural “eye” for the best shots.

    Definitely agree with you about your likeness with the Shopaholic series!lol I haven’t read the Twilight series yet, my friend keeps saying she’ll lend them me, but I’m still waiting?!?

    My mum is an inspiration to me too – sometimes I wonder how she got through the events in life she has, so I have the same admiration you do, I think our Mum’s are very special ladies.xxx
