All About Me

The fabulous Gina, over at Cold Tea and Smelly Nappies, has tagged me in an All About Me meme. You can read all about it here, and find out more about Gina.

The idea is based on the All About Me’s that children are often asked to write when they first start school, so Gina is now asking us to share ours – like it, Gina :-). So here are the questions, and ‘All About Me’…

1) First off tell us your name (an easy one)

Jocelyn Reading

2) I live at home with…

The husband, Boo, Little Man and Harry, our Basset Bleu de Gascogne.

3) My favourite thing to do is…many people

Read. Or browse in a bookshop. Or buy books. No, it’s reading.

4) My favourite thing to eat is…

Ice Cream. No hesitation, no doubt.

5) When I get cross I…

Shout. I’m absolutely not a bottler-upper!

6) Sometimes I worry because…

My family are healthy, we are happy, so surely the bubble will burst? I’m actually very much the optimist, but this scares me. Will not dwell..

7) My favourite book is…

One book? Seriously? Did you not see answer 3?! I genuinely find that impossible to answer. If I want a horror, I think The Amityville Horror’s tough to beat, for a classic, I’d have to choose Pride & Prejudice, for feel-good, I love Romancing Mr Bridgerton, and a favourite from my childhood, The Animals of Farthing Wood. Just mentioning 4 is very good for me, I think!

8) My favourite toy is (easy now)…

My iPhone. I don’t know what I’d do without it – very sad, but true!

9) I dislike…

Rudeness and bad manners. It costs nothing to be kind, and say ‘thank you’.

10) When I grow up I want to be…

Happy. So far, so good.

What about you? Would love to hear your answers to these questions. Can you choose just one favourite book?!
