One thing I LOVE about being in a community of “mom bloggers” is the amazing support I receive from people all over the world. Charlotte, the blogger behind Make Do & Friend, is one of those that are always supporting me with helpful and kind comments. I really appreciate her feedback … especially when I think her blog and ideas are SO wonderful. Therefore, I’m super-psyched to feature …
The ABCs of …
||25 – I always say ‘twentysomething’ when I’m out and about though, I think people assume I’m older, either that or motherhood has just aged me!
||I don’t know this one! We co-sleep so it’s more like 35% Daddy, 60% Vinnie and 5% teeny tiny corner with no blanket for me!
|Chore you Hate
||Washing up. It’s the absolute worst thing ever!
||I don’t mind them, but what I don’t like is ‘dog people’ – when they compare having a puppy to having a kid, that gets on my nerves!
|Essential start of the day
||Cuddle, coffee, multivitamin, stretch (and a feel-good mantra for days when I think I’ll need it)
||Bright sparkly blue
|Gold or Silver?
||I used to play drums back in my teenage years. I wanted to start a Riot Grrl revival. Now I’d settle for a nice piano!
|Kids (names & ages)
||Vincent 31 months
|Where do you Live?
||Tough one, I haven’t watched anything but kid’s films in soo long! I love French films: 8 women, Amelie, Heartbreaker, Girl with a Cigarette on a Bridge
||My other half calls me ‘Bear’ – mostly in public, almost entirely to make me blush
|Overnight hospital stay
||Vinnie was born a 2am so I got to eat breakfast in the hospital – we left at lunchtime that day
||People who talk without thinking
||I have so many. Lately I like ‘It’s a happy talent to know how to play’ – Ralph Waldo Emerson
|Right or left-handed?
||Yep, quite a few step-sisters and half-brothers
|Time it takes to get ready
||Minutes. Eyeliner, lipgloss, scrunch of the hair and a pout!
||Not very flattering these days!
|Vegetable you hate
||I’m not keen on sprouts, but I think that’s because I’ve never worked out a decent way to cook them
|What makes you late?
||Two and half year olds
|Xrays you’ve had
||On my chest about 4 weeks ago – I had pneumonia
|Yummy food that you make
||Everything I make is yummy! Today we’ve enjoyed Peanut Butter Houmous and a triple layered Devil’s Food Cake (not together though)
|favorite Zoo animal
||Giraffes – they’re so graceful
