Ooh at last I've been tagged in this 10 questions thing - started by Super Amazing Mum (after dropping some hints!!) by the lovely Ginny at Close to the Green. I wanted to be tagged in this as soon as I saw it as I thought I would be running out of things to say blogging everyday for NaBloPoMo but turns out I'm not. Think I may have too much to say! I am however running out of time everyday so I'll be kind of glad when it's over and I can get my life back and start preparing for Christmas! Right enough of that on to the questions:
1. Describe yourself in 7 words
unemployed mum, wife chickenkeeper and cleaning fairy
2. What keeps you awake at night?
Thinking of the zillion and one things I need to to be doing - blogging (ideas for blogs), cleaning, what I need t prepare for school, must sort out that pile of paper, need to sort out that cupboard, need to do the ironing, need to clean out the chickens - the list is never ending - you get the picture!
3. If you could be anyone for a day, who would you be and why?
mmmm - I think it has to be Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall (or a female version of). I just want his life really - River Cottage is just gorgeous and I would love to live in Dorset and be able to keep pigs, cows, chickens etc and have a huge area of land to grow all sorts of great produce. Oh and if I could cook as well as him that would be good too!
4. What are you wearing right now?
For a change I am not blogging in my pj's so it is a denim skirt and purple boots from Boden with my new snuggly grey jumper from Monsoon :) (I know, I know middle aged and middle class - well that's what I am so I don't care!)
5. What scares you?
Things flying around in small spaces like bats in the bedroom. That something awful might happen to my children/husband one day (like car accidents and stuff) - I try not to think about this one (especially at night!!)
6. What is the best and worst thing about blogging?
Best: discovering all the lovely people out there and finding out that you are not alone in whatever you might be thinking and reading all the fantastic blogs.
Worst: time time time - lack of it. Blogging is fab but it takes time and I could read other peoples blogs for hours and hours but I just don't have the time - arrgggggh!
7. What was the last website you looked at?
Quidco (a cashback site) which closely followed a visit to WhSmith - to see if I could get cashback if I bought my niece's birthday present online and then had it delivered to the store - so saving more money than just driving to the shop where I would not get cashback. Turns out I can so online ordering it is!
8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
Can I have a list? No - oh well - it would be to be more patient with the kids and shout at them less.
9. Slankets - yes or no?
What the f*** is a slanket?
10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you.
I haven't actually met Ginny from Close to the Green - but then I haven't met any of you yet (sob, sob - mental note must sign up to Britmums Live). I discovered her blog through the NaBloPoMo community (as I have discovered lots of lovely new blogs) - it was her post on a lump of coal for Christmas which first attracted me (my 3yo has been v naughty lately!). She is an Australian living in London with three little boys within three years of each other (phew!) and a Spanish husband. Her blog is great so go check her out.
Right now I have to tag somebody so I am tagging Laura from Adventures of an Ordinary Parent because she is my latest follower and I love her for that.
PS If there are any of you lovely blogger people around Hampshire, West Sussex, Surrey borders I really would love to meet some of you :)
