10 thoughts on “The 12 Question Meme”

  1. Hey lovely, I’ve been tagged on this one a few times but feel like I’ve done similar quite a few times in the past so will have to pass. Thanks for tagging me though, and I will answer them here if that’s ok?
    * Describe yourself in one short sentence: stroppy-arsed, tired mother of 1, wife of 1, teacher of many.
    * Tea or Coffee?: cold coffee only
    Do you like where you live? If not, where would you like to live?: Yes, moved back to ‘here’ (my hometown) after living in Reading for 3 years.
    * Your favorite holiday of all time? America, specifically, Vegas.
    * What do you look for in a spouse/other half?: someone who supports me, and does the dishes.
    * Favourite book?: Wuthering Heights
    * Worst meal you’ve had?: Bulgaria: feta cheese, tomato and cucumber salad. Not actually bad, but they don’t do veggie food there and this was the regional dish so I ate 9 portions in 4 days as there was naff all else to eat.
    * What do you do to relax in the evening?: Blog, twitter, watch tv.
    * Do you get on with your siblings?: Eldest brother = inordinately, 2nd brother = yes when his evil witch wife lets me, sister = when she’s not being supercilious.
    * Do you have any regrets?: Nope. Lucille Ball said ‘it’s better to regret something you have done than something you haven’t.’ Therefore I tend to live my life doing & not regretting because at least I did!
    * Russell Brand – Yay or Nay?: Nay! Knob!
    * Best Baby advice anyone has ever given you?: Ah well actually, this was Tony on Home & Away to his wife, “Read the baby and not the book!”


    1. Ooh love your answers :). I don’t like coffee much but I love the Starbucks chocolate cream frappacino.

      One day I want to go to Vegas!!

  2. I deleted my blog hun, looooong story.
    I loved reading your answers! You’re a bit nuts! Lol!
    Here are my answers though:
    1) a bit odd, but very friendly and open
    2) tea, black, no sugar
    3) I do like where I live for location, though I’d like to move off the estate, I fancy one of the Victorian semis up the road one day!
    4) cuba, my honeymoon. Just amazing, plus we met a couple that over the years have become our bestest friends
    5) someone, kind, who can make me smile and laugh, and intelligent enough to hold an engaging conversation. With nice eyes.
    6) favourite book, it changes all the time. I don’t tend to re read books so I’m gonna say flowers in the attic by Virginia andrews as that’s a book I have read dozens of times since I was 12.
    7) worst meal was goat, in Cuba, a very bizarre evening!
    8) to chill I lay on the corner sofa, reading, watching tv or catching up on emails etc on my phone.
    9) I get on with my sister now, but am ashamed to say that only began 11 years ago when I left home at 19 and sis was 17.
    10) I don’t like to regret things, it’s a wasted emotion. If I could change one thing I would change my bridesmaids- I really should’ve asked a friend who at the time I didn’t value enough, she had turned out to be the diamond I always needed!
    11) Russell brand….yay, most defiantly yay!
    12) best baby advice, trusts your instincts

    1. Only slightly nuts (sometimes) ;). I don’t like Russell brand, but there must be something there if Katy Perry married him!

  3. 1)Describe yourself in one short sentence: irritated easily
    Tea or Coffee? coffee, but really prefer tea. It’s just that I think it should be drunk in a calm environment where I don’t have a million things to do and can sit and enjoy it along with good conversation. Coffee is a grab and go, and toss if it gets too cold type of deal. No real attachment except that it gives you sugar power.
    Do you like where you live? If not, where would you like to live? No, because I hate the cold. Some place really warm with very tiny insects. So here, because warm places have insects as big as your head. yikes!
    Your favorite holiday of all time? Christmas
    What do you look for in a spouse/other half? Someone who compliments me, but can also put up with all my crap. My husband has been the only who’s ever fit the bill.
    Favourite book? I don’t have one. i love discovering new books and authors.
    Worst meal you’ve had? I was really little and my dad burnt the potatoes and still expected us to eat them. barf.
    What do you do to relax in the evening? put the kids to bed and mindlessly play mystery manor or anything else on facebook and watch tv.
    Do you get on with your siblings? Small doses. Love her, but we are two totally different people.
    Do you have any regrets? Many, but mostly my tool of an ex. The sperm donor.
    Russell Brand – Yay or Nay? Nay. Eww he looks like a narsty male stripper with all sorts of awful diseases.
    Best Baby advice anyone has ever given you? To take a nap when baby does, and co-sleep if you nurse. Notice they both have to do with optimizing my sleep? Oh yeah baby lol

    1. Completely agree with Russell Brand… I don’t geddit!
      And sleeping when the baby sleeps, oh yes!!! I used to think it was a bad day if I didn’t sleep when the baby slept. 🙂

  4. Like the comment about the rubbish. I hate doing it too, but feel I have to do it or it won’t get done. It was and is one of the few jobs my dad does at home and I kind of feel it should be a man’s job. My husband doesn’t see it that way. 🙂

    1. That’s exactly like my dad so we have the same thing. My OH can’t understand why i won’t just walk a 100 yards to the bins outside!
