The A-Z of me


I was tagged by Emma at Mummy Musings for this blog post - you can read her A-Z here
The meme originated with Lauren at Real Housewife of Suffolk County 


ANORAK…Do you have a sad side?
I am an avid Oxford United fan and would have a season ticket if I lived closer to Oxford. I used to be a football statistician and you don't get much more geeky than that!
BODY…What physical attribute would you most like to change? 
I would like to halve the size of my bottom. Not taking one cheek off - that would be weird! It's where I put on weight and I hate it.
CELEBRITY…Which one would you most like to date and why? 
David Tennant. The rumours of David 'Teninch' are enough for me. And he's beautiful.
DEBUT …Tell us about your first ever blog post. What made you start blogging?
Mine was a bit boring, just about who I am and why I have gripes about people thinking I'm not from round here. It was followed by absolutely nothing for a long time!
ERROR …What’s been your biggest regret? 
I really don't believe in having regrets because everything that has happened in the past makes us who we are now. That's not to say I don't do stuff and think that maybe I shouldn't have, I just don't dwell on them.
FUNNY – who’s making you laugh?
My two year old son. His comic timing is amazing. One night last week, "Mummy loves Daddy. Poor Daddy".
GRAND…If we gave you one right now what would you spend it on? 
I would blow it on a trip to Vegas for my 30th in a few weeks. I'm so fed up of being sensible with money!
HOLIDAY… What’s your favourite destination?  
I don't really have a favourite destination. Anywhere I can relax and unwind is good for me. A holiday I really enjoyed was when I went with my aunt to New Caledonia at the age of 14, it's an amazing place.


My favourite hotel is Swinton Park in Masham. It is amazing and we try to go once a year.
IRRITATE… What’s your most annoying habit? 
I'm a bit indecisive and I can be a pain in the arse making decisions when I'm tired!
JOKER…Whats your favourite joke {the one that makes you laugh everytime you hear it}?
Why are pirates called pirates? Because they aaaaaarrrrrrrrrr!
KENNEL… Do you have any pets? 
Two cats, a ginger tom called Bruce and a tortoiseshell girl called Bella. They are both 7 now.
LOVE…Are you single, married, engaged, living with a long term partner? 
Married (8 years and counting)
MEAL… Whats your ultimate starter, main and dessert?
This depends. If it's a meal in a restaurant, then: smoked salmon parcels, duck in orange sauce with parsnip and sweet potato mash, chocolate tarte
If it's comfort food, then: melon, baked potato with mackerel and salad, syrup sponge pudding
NOW…If you could be anywhere right now where would you be and who with? 
At my Grandma's snuggled up in front of the fire with my husband, my son and my daughter (oh, and my Grandma)!
OFF DUTY…What do you do in your spare time? 
I try to stop thinking but it rarely happens.
PROUD MOMENTS …What are you most proud of? 
Getting into university as a mature student.
QUEASY …What turns your stomach?
Throats and noses. Urgh.
RELAX…How do you relax? 
I'm not very good at relaxing. I guess I relax by going to sleep.
SONG…Whats your favourite song of all time? 
Ooh, this is tough. I'd say 'All Shook Up' by Elvis as this was our first dance song.
TIME …If you could go back in time and relive it again, when would you choose? 
Our honeymoon in Mauritius. I'd make sure we both didn't get food poisoning and waste four days ill in bed.
UNKNOWN…Tell us something about yourself that no one else knows? 

I was expelled from private school when I was 14 for doing nothing. Literally nothing. No homework, no work, nothing. The lamest expulsion I have ever heard of!
VOCAL…. Who is your favourite artist? 
Adele. She gives me goosebumps when she sings.
WORK….. What is your dream job, and are you doing it now? 
My dream job was to work for BBC Sport and I achieved it aged 18. Still trying to decide what my new dream job is!
XRAY…Any broken bones?
I broke my coccyx a few years ago by falling downstairs whilst rushing to watch ER. Ah, the irony. Ah, the agony.
YIKES…What’s been your most embarrassing moment? 
Probably passing out at my husband's best friend's wedding. I was taken away in an ambulance and my husband had to flit between the hospital and the reception (to give his speech). It was made worse because I wasn't wearing a bra and unfortunately when I fell, I 'popped out' of the dress and the vicar had to pop me back in as I was in no fit state!
ZOO…. If you were an animal, which one would you be? 
Definitely a giraffe. They get to see what everyone else is up to!
I have tagged some ladies whose blogs I really enjoy reading: 

Jane at How I Like My Coffee 
Eileen at College Mummy 
The 'Eccentric Chocoholic' at The Balancing Act 
MrsXpat at Tiger Tales

  2. It was rather mortifying. Luckily at the time I was in no fit state to care!
