I am just chilling out here, on this miserable Sunday afternoon, and see that the gorgeous Vicky from Crunchy Leaves and Sunsets nominated me for The Sunshine Blogger Award, which was extremely humbling and lovely as well.
We could do with some sunshine today as it’s been raining all day long here in Southampton; but I was also intrigued as she was nominated by I’d rather be in Disneyworld and that is my favourite place in the world!
Anyway, back to the nomination by Vicky, please go and read her blog as she’s super lovely and I was really moved by her post ‘The Hardest Story I Will Ever Tell: Part One’; it’s always hard to talk about personal and emotive topics so I feel she’s very brave and deserves lots of hugs.
I have 11 questions to answer… here goes…
If you could invite anyone to perform at your next birthday party, who would it be and why?
I have had love affairs with both since I was a teenager and still love them to this day. I wasn’t a big Take That fan but I know exactly where I was when the news that Robbie left the band and my love for him grew from there.
Robbie is a perfect entertainer and he would be great to listen and watch. I have never seen him in concert as I have never been lucky enough to get tickets and with my current anxiety levels, the thought of going to a concert fills me with dread.
However, I have seen Bon Jovi in concert a few times and he is amazing and knows how to party. I love his music and he has such a passion for his fans and appreciates each one of them coming to his concerts.
What is your favourite item of clothing?
My pyjamas. I live in my PJs and they are my number one comfort clothing. Dean always says I own more PJs than anything else and I will prefer to buy new PJs over normal clothes.
What three words would your friends use to describe you?
I would hope they would say I am loyal, honest and reliable. I will do anything for my friends and my door is always open to them.
Would you rather eat a hair sandwich or drink a shot of snot?
Ewwwww…. neither! I think the shot as it’s over rally quickly whereas the sandwich would require lots of bites and a longer time span.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Hmmm… depends on the circumstances. Manners, lies, false people, lateness…
If you could pick one cocktail to represent you, which one would it be and why?
Because of my OCD, I always have the same foods and drinks when out so I would have something like a Tequila Sunrise.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Cake. I love cake.
Where are you going on your next holiday?
Walt Disney World in Florida.
What do you like to do to indulge yourself?
I love reading books and I read really quickly which means I read a lot of books in a quick succession.
What one thing could you not live without?
My family. I don’t think I could live if I lost another child and I’m only alive after losing my boys because of my wonderful husband.
If you could be an animal, which would you be and why?
I would like to be a cat. My cat has the most ideal lifestyle, she sleeps a lot, demands food and sweets, gives love and rules the house.
