A big thank you to Lisa over at Oh Luna for creating The October blog tag, designed to help us learn a bit more about the blogger behind the blog. So, carry on reading to see how boring I really am!
In overdue pregnancy limbo
Taurus! Which apparently according to Google…‘Taurus is the sign that harvests the fruits of labour‘
The universe is mocking me!
Frozen or Moana?
Neither, I’m a terrible person. My boys will probably be bullied.
Where did I put that takeaway menu?
I’m a book lover, always have been. But, recently I just don’t have the time to read. You can usually find me watching a Netflix film with the hubby instead.
Flowers, I love having flowers around the house.
*readers, this is what’s known as kidding oneself, as I am wearing a bra thats older than my children’s combined ages, and we have a leaking roof and a imminent baby to pay for*
**we have NOT purchased a baby, it was a merely a figure of speech**
What is your current favourite TV series?
Once I’ve waved Iggle Piggle off as he sails his boat off into the land of nod…it’s bedtime for the boys!! #HappyDance
Kick up leaves, collect conkers, go pumpkin picking and get involved in Halloween activities.
Really juicy fruit…mostly mango, pineapple and melon.
Oh, and erm ALL THE CHOCOLATE!! But not until after 8pm for some reason.
*denial alert – I know perfectly well it’s so that I don’t have to share it with the boys*
An introvert, yet I blog so maybe I’m not as introverted as I once thought I was?
I have a somewhat eclectic taste in music that my hubby likes to entitle ‘crap’…much like my taste in men obviously!!
First stop will be Halloween monster cupcakes, I’ve already got the grusome bits and bobs in to make them with, but have run out of energy.
It’s a bit morbid, but I’m scared of becoming ill and not seeing my children grow up. Watching my Dad bravely fight Acute Myeloid Leaukaemia, before finally losing his battle last year really hit home. I’m classed as a ‘geriatric mother’ of advanced maternal age according to my maternity notes (think Meghan Markle, but without the youthful looks, money or Princely hubby) and I am very aware of how old my children would be if I only made it to a certain age. I’m generally a positive person but this is always a niggle at the back of my mind.
Is this a Cher song?
I have two boys on the outside, one on the inside. We also have 4 hens, and a cat called Tilly.
I only started a couple of months ago. I had just closed down my Etsy business for maternity leave, as I was struggling to find the time to work on orders, once the boys were in bed I was too tired to start working. I’ve often considered blogging as I enjoy writing but I’ve always been a bit scared of making that leap. It seemed to be the perfect time, especially as it gave me another creative outlet to focus on. I did a bit of research and jumped onto WordPress as it seemed the most user friendly (I’m not tech savvy) and could be run from an app…see earlier comment about complete lack of laptop. I decided to blog about what I know and happily fell into the ‘Mummy Blogger’ box.
There are probably loads of improvements and changes I need to make, I’m learning on my feet. I also do everything via my phone which isn’t the best idea if I want to expand and grow it like a small business.
I’ve been pleased to see my numbers move in the right direction, especially my DA.
I’ll be 48 with 3 boys entering the hormone fuelled teenage years…I’ll be happy if I’ve managed to survive!
That’s why I’m not so patiently waiting for/wishing for/and googling how to get this baby to come out ASAP.
And, there we have it! Some 40 odd questions but I hope you found out something new about me!
