Getting to Know you Meme...

Friday, 19 October 2012

I have actually been tagged twice this week for this meme by two yummy mummies who I have had the pleasure of reading their awesome blogs at Twins, Tiaras and Tantrums and Mischief, Mayhem and Motherhood go check out their blogs for yourself!

So now to the meme

Here are the rules:
Post 5 random facts about yourself
Choose 5 other deserving blogs with less than 200 subscribers to nominate and link their blogs in your post
Tell your nominees you have chosen them for this award by leaving a comment on their blogs - have done this via Twitter
Answer the 5 questions the tagger has asked you and ask your own 5 questions to the people you nominate - I am just going to ask the same questions I answered as they are good ones!
No tag backs

So five different random facts about me:
1. I used to live next door to Liam Gallagher and Patsy Kensit when they were together - that was interesting!

2. I went to Film School when I was younger, qualified and have never done anything with that! Maybe on a parallel universe?

3. I didn't own my first car until I was 30yo - 5 years after I passed my test!

4. I used to live and teach in Italy in my 20's and lived in Canada too!

5. I don't have a middle name - which I always thought was weird when at school!

Now to answer the questions:
1. Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?
Hopefully in Canada, with my OH and lots of children and running my own business! I'm not sure how that will all happen yet though! Next year we are starting the immigration process to Canada which is going to be very exciting! As for lots of children well I have my beautiful 2yo daughter who I am very blessed to be a mummy to, unfortunately though I now suffer with secondary infertility so I don't know realistically how many more children are in my future we'll just have to wait and see! And my own business? Well I have hundreds of ideas I just need one to be a winner!

2. When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be something different every week, I can remember wanting to be a police officer, lawyer, fashion designer and film director! The one thing I always wanted though for as long as I can remember was to be a mum!

3. What's your favourite alcoholic drink?
I like them all, I'm not fussy! In fact for me it would be which one I don't like which is Cider I can't really stomach that and tequila - had a bad experience at 18! Mostly I drink white wine though!

4. How long have you been blogging for and why did you start?
I started in January this year, I had been thinking about it for a few months and it took me gases to really get it going, I'm having a bit of lull at the moment but have lots going in my life, I am hopping to get it going again soon. I started it as a hobby really, for a while I didn't really know what direction it was going in or what sort of blogger I wanted to be but now I have a more clear direction.

5. Do you still live where you grew up or have you moved to a new location?
Well no, I moved about loads as a child and as an adult I have lived half way round the world and back! At the moment I am in Somerset, this is where my OH is from so I have settled here for now but as I mentioned previously Canada is calling....

My five nominees are:

Mascara and Mud
It started with a squish
But why mummy why
A girls imagination
I want does not get
