The Q&A Meme

The lovely Sophie, over at Sophie Is has tagged me to share a few answers to her questions with you, in the Q&A meme, so I thought I’d have a go and reveal all…!

Where in the world would you most like to be right now?

Well, always anywhere that my family are, and fortunately that’s right here! But if we could all be transported, it’d be to Las Vegas, stood outside the Bellagio hotel, watching the fountains show. I was just showing the kids a YouTube clip of it, and telling them why the Husband and I like the song This Kiss – brings back some great memories, and it’d be fabulous to show it to the children, too. And it’d be sunny. And then I could eat cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory. And then I could go and gamble….! Oh, to dream….!

What do you love most about having your blog?

It gives me focus, somewhere to channel my endless ideas and energy, it charts my kids’ growing up, it’s brought me so many fabulous review opportunities and I’ve made some truly lovely friends through it, some I’ve met in person, others I love ‘knowing’ through the on-line world. So, really, I love pretty much everything about it!

Who is the person that you most admire?

My mum. She’s a great mum, always has been, and is now a fabulous nanny, too. She’s come through a very painful divorce, beaten cancer, handled the grief of all of her family (her mum and two brothers) dying within six months of one another, and still, still, I know she’d put my brother and I first in a heartbeat and her problems pale into comparison if we ever need her. I know, with absolutely certainty, that she would do anything for me, and is always here when I need her. She’s loyal to her many friends, she can turn her hand to pretty much anything and, well, she’s my mum. I’m proud of her.

What keeps you awake at night?

Other than Little Man getting up repeatedly, you mean?! To be honest, as long as the children sleep, then I tend to, though I can be kept awake by a book. I so often do that thing of staying up later than I know I should, as the kids will invariably have me up by 6, but I just want to read that little bit more. I do it night after night until I’m exhausted. When will I learn?!

What is your all-time favourite breakfast?

Hmm. If I’m home, probably croissants and orange juice, but the ‘all-time’ would be connected to the luxury of not making it, as I do love a hotel breakfast – ooh, the decadence!

Which song makes you smile every time you hear it?

There are a few that will always have me happy and singing along, such as I Say a Little Prayer, Burning Love, My Life and I’m Your Man (all totally current hits, of course!) and then tracks like Let it Go and Gangnam Style, because I immediately picture Boo dancing and singing along to them!

If you could go back and give one piece of advice to your fifteen year old self, what would it be?

As if I’d have listened! I think in your teens, it’s about making mistakes and then taking something from them, so I have few regrets, but plenty of learns!

OK, so now it’s my turn to tag a few bloggers, and I’d like to ask them these very same questions, as I enjoyed answering them. So, I tag…
