Seems like some people are really enjoying my series highlighting great blogs by giving you the “ABCs” of the ladies behind the blogs! (yay!) This week I’m happy to share a recently new find for me … she commented on my ABC post last week … and I love her blog. So, here are the ABCs of Pauline from Lessons Learnt Journal.
Age – 25 (since 2006).
Bed Size – Queen; ( but had I known the amount of space kids take up in the mornings when they sneak in, I would have invested in a King).
Chore that you hate – Ironing MOUNTAINS of business shirts.
Dogs – Love them, but don’t have a large enough garden for one.
Essential start to the day – The crescendo of children’s voices; (that’s a nice way to say the kids are getting crazy). The crescendo is “essential” as it is the only way to get me out of bed these days.
Favorite color – Baby blue (or perhaps my palette has been brainwashed since having three boys).
Gold or silver – White gold.
Height – Vertically challenged.
Instrument you play – I can play the piano. Cello and singing lessons were had, but I can’t play the cello or sing for the life of me – (unless there’s a Sing Star comp, then it’s game on!).
Job – Stay at home mum and Primary School Teacher on maternity leave. (And in what seems like a previous life now, Business Development Co-ordinator and Superannuation Fund Administrator).
Kids – Fraternal twins N & M born May 2008; “Baby boy” E born June 2010; “Darling Daughter” K born November 2011.
Where do you Live? - Sydney, Australia.
Favourite Movie – This is cheating, as it’s a mini series, but BBC’s Pride and Prejudice, (yes ladies‚ the one with Colin Firth ;P). Sigh, if only I had the time and wasn’t surrounded by boys and a husband who are obsessed with comic heroes.
Nickname – Just asked my husband and we had a good laugh about this one. Better leave it at that.
Overnight hospital stay – Much more than I would have liked during my twin pregnancy, but all ended well with two healthy twin boys.
Pet Peeve – Double negatives in sentences.
Quote – “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” – John 3:16.
Right or left handed – Right.
Siblings – 1 younger brother.
Time it takes you to get ready - If by ready you mean dressed in comfy clothes, no make up, hair tied back, then 5 minutes. If more is required, who knows, it’s been awhile.
Underwear - If I had a dollar for every time I tell my boys to put some on, I would be very, very rich.
Vegetable you hate - Ladies fingers. Everything about that vegetable is wrong.
What makes you run late - Kids. Four of them under four to be exact.
Xrays you’ve had - one (with a rather embarassing story).
Yummy food that you make - Husband replied “anything”. Bless.
Zoo animal - Baby pandas. So. Cute.
