A to Z of Me

So, there’s a new Meme doing the rounds, and I was tagged by Blending Time in his post….so here’s mine…

ANORAK…Do you have a sad side?

Erm… I wouldn’t say that I do. I used to collect keyrings….still love them and magnets too 🙂

BODY…What physical attribute would you most like to change?

How long have you got? Obviously being a mum to 3, my body has chaged over the past few years. I gained nearly 4st in weight with my first pregnancy and have never got back to that pre-pregnancy state. I would like smaller thighs and stomach.

CELEBRITY…Which one would you most like to date and why?

Gosh, there are so many drop dead gorgeous celebs out there, who wouldn’t want to date any of them. If I had to choose it would be either Gerard Butler or Vin Diesel. Why? Why not!! They’re great actors and not bad looking either!

DEBUT …Tell us about your first ever blog post. What made you start blogging?

My first ever blog post was just a few months ago on the 23rd June, 2011. Tis I Here was my first post and explains why I started blogging. I’ve had a crap time in my short life, and hopefully someone out there can relate to it. I also just like to write 🙂

ERROR …What’s been your biggest regret?

Easy….I regret screwing up my education! I made a big mistake in my final year of High School of letting my low life ex-boyfriend kick me whilst I was down and it got to me. It got to me so much, I left for 6 months and returned just before I took my GCSE’s. I then went straight to full time work rather than go to college. I then went from job to job before having children.

FUNNY – who’s making you laugh?

My husband tells me to get a sense of humour (apparently I don’t have one!). Comedian wise, my favourites are: Micky Flanagan, Lee Mack and the legend that is Lee Evans

GRAND…If we gave you one right now what would you spend it on?

I would probably end up treating the husband and children. If we could get a babysitter for a weekend (highly unlikely!!), then I would probably treat hubby to a weekend away at a luxury spa! We haven’t spent time alone together for years!!

HOLIDAY… What’s your favourite destination?

It’s got to be Florida!! We love it there.

IRRITATE… What’s your most annoying habit?

I don’t think I have one..but my hubby disagree’s 🙂 Apparently, my most annoying habit is: Leaving the clean washing folded on the bed, instead of putting it away straight away (it tends to still be on the bed when we go up then I put it all away lol)….oh and saying “I was going to do that in a minute”

JOKER…Whats your favourite joke {the one that makes you laugh everytime you hear it}?

I’m rubbish at jokes. My favourite ones have to be the “Little Billy” jokes though. Here’s one:


A teacher asks her class, “If there are 5 birds sitting on a fence and you shoot one of them, how many will be left?” She calls on little Billy. He replies, “None, they will all fly away with the first unshot.”
The teacher replies, “The correct answer is 4, but I like your thinking.”

Then little Billy says, “I have a question for YOU. There are 3 women sitting on a bench having ice cream: One is delicately licking the sides of the triple scoop of ice cream. The second is gobbling down the top and sucking the cone. The third is biting off the top of the ice cream. Which one is married?”

The teacher, blushing a great deal, replies, “Well, I suppose the one that’s gobbled down the top and sucked the cone.” To which Little Billy replied, “The correct answer is ‘the one with the wedding ring on’, but I like your thinking.”

KENNEL… Do you have any pets?

We have one guinea pig called Peppa. Peppa did have a brother George, who sadly passed away at the beginning of the year.

LOVE…Are you single, married, engaged, living with a long term partner?

Married to my Left Half … Married in May 2008, but have been together since December 2002.

MEAL… Whats your ultimate starter, main and dessert?

It’s gotta be Garlic Doughballs, followed by Pepperoni Pizza and finished with a warm Chocolate Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream and Chocolate sauce!! Mmmmm

NOW…If you could be anywhere right now where would you be and who with?

I would be in Florida with our family 🙂

OFF DUTY…What do you do in your spare time?

Being a SAHM to 3 children, youngest being 11 months old…I don’t have spare time!!

PROUD MOMENTS …What are you most proud of?

Cliche and cheesy….but giving birth to my children 🙂

QUEASY …What turns your stomach?

Rollercoasters! I used to love them but now they make my stomach churn!

RELAX…How do you relax?

Relax? What’s that?? I’m lucky if I can have a peaceful 10 mins in the bath without someone wanting to use to the toilet, or baby needing feeding.

SONG…Whats your favourite song of all time?

Gosh, so hard as I have a few favourite songs. I love “Stand By Me” by Ben E King “End of the Road” by Boys II Men….BUT my all time favourite has to be the song we chose for our First Dance when we got married – Anastacia – I Dreamed You

TIME …If you could go back in time and relive it again, when would you choose?

I would go back to my teens and change some of the silly things I did, and I would spend more time with my grandparents.

UNKNOWN…Tell us something about yourself that no one else knows?

My husband knows everything about me….but not a lot of people know that at 15 I worked selling balloons at a major British Theme Park….I would walk around with over 100 helium balloons…yup, I was one of those who parents can’t stand as their kids look in awe and the magnificent display begging for an overpriced balloon.

VOCAL…. Who is your favourite artist?

I’m really liking Adele and Jessie J at the moment. I have quite a few artists that I enjoy listening to.

WORK….. What is your dream job, and are you doing it now?

I’d like to work for myself. I’m a bit of a sweet/chocoholic and sometimes crave it but can’t be bothered to leave the house for it….I wish that there was a Chocolate Shop that delivered…or perhaps I’d buy an old Ice Cream Van and convert it to a mobile sweet shop??

XRAY…Any broken bones?

No, luckily…although I have badly sprained both my ankles (make it hard for me to run lol).

YIKES…What’s been your most embarrassing moment?

Erm, you kinda lose all dignity when you have kids to not that much is embaressing. Probably the time I was sick (like projectile) into an M&S bag at a bus stop when I was about 14/15yrs old

ZOO…. If you were an animal, which one would you be?

Probably a cat….so I can laze around all day lol.

So, there is my A-Z and I am now going to tag 5 fellow bloggers! You can get a blank template from Here… I apologise if you have already done this:

    Oh. My. Gosh. I'm so impressed you took the time to write this out. There's no way I have the patience to do that! 🙂 Thanks for thinking of me. And seriously, you're so rad.

    I do the 'leaving the laundry on the bed to put away at bedtime' thing as well Rachel! Only problem is, hubby usually goes to bed before me so he has to find somewhere to put it and if I don't get it put away that day, it usually stays where it is for another couple of days *red faced* before I remember about it. I have a huge pile and a basket full up there right now. Must remember to put it away tomorrow!

    Loved the joke, made me LOL 😀 xx

    oh my goodness, this is an in depth meme, proper interview.
    where do you keep all your keyrings or do you have your house key on a huge bunch of key rings? intrigued?

    It honestly didn't take too long to complete.

    I don't have as many keyrings now, but through my teens I had hundreds of them. They were just bunched together (never used). I had some really great ones, but through the years they have gone missing 😦
