A to Z of ME

A big thank you to the lovely Mostly Yummy Mummy for letting me get involved in this meme which was started by Lauren over at The Real Housewife of Suffolk County.

ANORAK…Do you have a sad side?

It is quite sad that my anorak side is for my laptop, as soon as the kids are in bed I am sat here either on twitter, typing up a review, writing a post or responding to emails, either that or doing work but that is no where near as much fun

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

Without a doubt I would change my teeth, I hate them, they are wonky and just awful. If I had the money I would get them all taken out and have implants in. As I am quite fat I reckon people would expect me to say something to do with that but that is something I can change and believe me I am trying.

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

Oh this is a hard one, I am not really into celebrities. Do you remember Dean Cain? He played Superman in the tv series. He was always quite tasty apart from that I am not really sure. I would love to go out for a night on the piss with a few but not on a date. Karl Pilkington is one that I would like to go for a drink with so I could ask him loads of philosophical questions, that would definitely be a fun night.

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

I started blogging on 1st August this year, I had realised that my kids do some funny/amazing/annoying/hilarious things all the time but after a week or two we have forgotten them. I started blogging to try to preserve those memories. My first post was about the rules I try to live my life by as a mum. http://tired-mummy.blogspot.com/2011/08/hello-world.html I have changed blogging platform since then and you can see it looks a bit ummm whats the word… shit.

ERROR …What’s been your biggest regret?

I don’t really have regrets, things that have happened have happened and they make me who I am today, I think if I changed one thing about my past other things would change to and then where will I be. I suppose one thing I might think about changing is being in debt. I am not in debt anymore but it wasnt fun when I was, and what was the point really. I also think I might have saved a bit more so we could be living in our own house instead of a rented house. It is a very nice rented house but it is not ours and that makes a difference.

FUNNY – who’s making you laugh?

My kids make me laugh at least once a day, and the other bloggers that I read, I snorted coffee out of my nose today reading a post written by @Mammywoo http://misslexywoo.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/alpine-goats-winter-coats/ I love the fact that people I have never met can make me laugh, not because they are funny but because you can picture yourself as a parent doing exactly the same thing.

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

Ooh this is a tricky one, I think I would buy all the little bits that you put off as a parent because the money could be used else where, a new pair of shoes because yours are falling apart, a haircut,a service for the car, get new crockery, maybe even new saucepans to replace all the burnt ones. I don’t think £1000 would last long once you buy all the bits you always put off.

HOLIDAY… What’s your favourite destination?

I have only been abroad twice, once to Corfu and once to Lanzarote. I loved them both but I would really love to go to Florida and take the girls to disneyland, my dream is to swim wiith dolphins so I would be happy to go anywhere that I can do that.

IRRITATE… What’s your most annoying habit? 

I am not sure what my most annoying habit would be, I suppose everyone I know would have a different answer to that. My habit that annoys me the most is my inability to type the word “the” correctly. For some unknown reason my fingers dont work and I always end up typing “teh” and then having to reread everything. Whats worse is when I dont reread it and then look at it later and can see all the obvious mistakes.

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

At the moment it has to be the joke that Elizabeth came home from school with the other week (bearing in mind she is 3 and I laugh more at her response than the actual joke itself)

Knock Knock
Whos there?
Doggy
Doggy Who?
Doggy Doo Doo

This is followed by absolute hysterics everytime (sometimes she replaces doggie with daddy and then calls him a poo poo head). As you can see the preschool toilet humour phase is definitely here.

KENNEL… Do you have any pets?

We have 2 hamsters Rusty and Dusty and a tank of goldfish, we did have 2 cats but when we moved they decided they didnt like the new house.

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

I am Married to the lovely and obviously mad Adam Seaton. In fact it is our 2nd wedding anniversary in 2 days. We had a fancy dress wedding and it was loads of fun.

MEAL… Whats your ultimate starter, main and dessert?

Now this is a tricky one as I love my food

Starter : A nice warm goats cheese salad with red onion, some type of nut. rocket and a lovely light dressing with maybe a hint of chilli

Main: A Fillet or Medallion steak cooked Blue with Freshly cut chips, peppercorn sauce and sauteed mushrooms with onion rings

Dessert: I am not really a dessert person but I reckon some nice fresh starwberries and a really luxurious cream to dip them in. Keeping dessert light is the key for me.

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

Seen as it is gine midnight and I am ill I would say I would love to be tucked up in bed fast asleep with my husband. The only thing I would change is that I have to get up in the morning to go to work so maybe make it saturday tomorrow and make the kids sleep in until 10 oclock.

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

This is my spare time, and here I am doing what I am always doing nowadays typing away at my computer. Not that I mind, I feel as though I have neglected my blog recently because all my attention has been on my tombola. Which is going great but it is so time consuming.

PROUD MOMENTS …What are you most proud of?

I am proud of my children all the time, they are polite and well spoken and we always get praised on they’re behaviour, oh dont get me wrong they can be little shits but I know that we have taught them well because when they are not being little shits they are little angels 🙂

QUEASY …What turns your stomach?

One of the only things that turns my stomach is the sound of someone retching, just thinking about it makes me want to be sick.

RELAX…How do you relax?

I used to read books to relax now I read blogs, I also love baths but I don’t get a chance to have a quiet bath very often anymore.

SONG…Whats your favourite song of all time?

That is tricky, there are so many songs that mean so much in my life I suppose it would have to be Ten story love song by the stone roses but Wonderful tonight by eric clapton is a close second.

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

I would go back to when I was at school and give myself a talk about doing my homework and studying, I did well in my GCSE’s but I didnt deserve to do well.

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

Wow, something no one else knows… I dont think there is anything. Ok, sometimes and only very rarely I think about how nice it would be to have another baby. Now dont get me wrong it is not going to happen ever but that broodyness gets to us all sometimes.

VOCAL…. Who is your favourite artist?

My favourite vocal artist would have to be Eric Clapton, I love his voice and the sincerity in his songs

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

I used to want to be a vet but I wouldnt want to put animals to sleep, then I wanted to work with kids but they are little shits really and you get paid bugger all to do it. I suppose that I do actually work in my dream job, not because it is interesting because most days it isnt and it is just a job, but I have a great boss, I work school hours only so am there for Elizabeth and if my kids were ill or I ever needed time off work I know it would not be a problem. I think as a parent that is more important than what you do on an hour by hour basic. The peace of mind that comes from having a great employer even if you job sucks sometimes.

XRAY…Any broken bones?

No I have never broken a bone although I have had a fair go at it a few times

YIKES…What’s been your most embarrassing moment?

I was once a chicken in Animal Farm does that count? I didnt think it was embarassing at the time but now I am an adult I have definitely had a few looks when I have said that.

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

Thats a tricky one, I think I am made up of the traits of many animals but if I had to choose one I would like to think of myself as a dolphin, they are intelligent and extremely caring. Dolphins would go out of their way to help an injured or distressed animal and have been observed swimming underneath sick animals for hours to help them breath at the surface. I like to think that is me, I will help anyone in anyway I can from giving my breakfast to homeless people to giving first aid to someone injured in the street.

I now need to pass this wonderful A to Z of Me onto other bloggers who have yet to do this and so I choose @sadiequinton from Mums guide to insanity @stressymummy from Musings of a stressy mummy and @smilernpb from http://www.smilernpb-smilernpb.blogspot.com/

Over to you and let me know how you get on.
