My first born Keisha has tagged me to do this blog, you can read her answers here. So, without further ado, here goes...
1. What are you wearing?
My fave vintage 50's American dungarees and white 3/4 sleeve t-shirt and bare feet :)
2. Ever been in love?
Yes, and still am ~ married my soul mate who I have known since I was 4.
3. Ever had a terrible break up?
Yes, all teen break~ups feel like the end of the world when they happen, you cry for a week or so, eat vats of ice~cream, listen to heartbreak records and cry along to them THEN pull yourself together and do it all again when you break up with the next boyfriend!
4. How tall are you?
5 ft 8.5" (the 0.5 is VERY important) I have shrunk though, on my medical records it has my height down as being 5ft 10" when I was 17 years old!
5. How much do you weigh?
Less than when I was carrying to term when pregnant and more than when I was 18.
6. Any tattoos?
Yes, one on the inside of my right wrist. I'm planning on getting more hopefully very soon.
7. Any piercings?
I have first and second piercings in my lobes on both ears, I did have my tragus pierced in my right ear and helix in my left but they both rejected and healed up ~ I also have my nose pierced which is my favourite piercing.
Not really I don't really get the whole "shipping" thing.
9. Favourite Show?
These vary, I love so many, currently I am watching (and addicted to) 24 ~ dreading when the last series ends! Greys Anatomy is a long standing favourite although I still very much miss Dexter ~ I loved that series, and Breaking Bad (although couldn't watch it a second time round). Then there is Fargo, the series not film, Sopranos and Supernatural ~ oh and Orange is the New Black too!
10. Favourite Bands?
Rolling Stones, Muse, No Doubt, Queen, MCR, Black Sabbath, and many more which I just can't think of right now.
11. Something you miss?
My mum obviously, still feels as raw now as the day she died. The health of my girls, I so miss not being able to spontaneously go off and do things with them.
Don't really have one ~ many songs have many meanings for me and so it is too difficult to choose a favourite.
13. How old are you?
45 ~ although not for much longer, I will be 46 in May!
14. Zodiac sign?
15. Qualities you look for in a partner?
Someone who accepts me for who I am, someone I can be 100% myself with and who I can trust ~ plus laughter is hugely important to me, so someone who gels on the humour front too.
16. Favourite quote?
"Never be bullied into silence, Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself."
17. Favourite Actor?
I have many, a few are Kiefer Sutherland, Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington, Judi Dench, Meryl Streep ...
18. Favourite Colour?
19. Loud music or soft?
Depends on the mood ~ soft music if chilling and relaxing, loud if out and about and dancing.
20. Where do you go when you are sad?
I tend to retreat into myself and hide from the outside world, if I lived by the coast I would love to be able to sit on a beach and watch the waves as I find that immensely soothing.
21. How long does it take you to shower?
Not very long at all, I'd say about 5~10 minutes.
22. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Again, not long ~ quick shower then throw on some clothes, perhaps 20 minutes tops.
23. Ever been in a physical fight?
With my sister when we were younger ~ she fell down the stairs and I had my head pushed through the banisters breaking 3 rods!
24. Turn on?
Genuineness and humour.
25. Turn off?
Arrogance and ignorance.
26. The reason you started blogging?
As a place to vent and share.
Harm coming to those I love and spiders, I feckin' loathe spiders!
28. Last thing that made you cry?
Difficult one, I have a memory shorter than a goldfish and I cry whenever someone is kind to me ~ I think it was when Keisha gave me my insomnia journal.
29. Last time you said you loved someone?
Daily, I say it to my husband and daughters all the time.
30.Meaning behind your blogging name?

35. Relationship between you and the person you last texted?
36. Favourite food?
This is a tough one for me as I crave different foods depending on my mood ~ in the Summer all I want to eat is BBQ, salads, fresh bread and seasonal fruit. In Winter I crave roasts and comfort foods like crumble and custard.
37. Place you want to visit?
I would love to return to Pompeii and Rome and take my daughters and husband there, it was a trip I took with my family when I was young and it made a huge impression on me.

Now that would be saying!

I don't know, I have a thick skin and half the time am totally oblivious to insults,
42. Favourite flavour of sweet?

Violin very very poorly (Scarborough Fair anyone?) and piano pretty badly too, although did get up to Grade 4 ~ oh and recorder, if you call blowing an instrument to make it squawk "playing".

My St Cuthberts Cross ~ it holds enormous sentimental value.

Don't have one, just very grateful when anyone asked!
48. Have you ever used it?
I used to ask boys out because they never asked me ~ I used to just be very blunt and matter of fact, used it last on The Dave and the rest, as they say, is history.
49. Last time you hung out with anyone?
You don't really "hang out" at my age do you?
50. Who should answer these questions next?
Hmm, anyone who wants to I suppose.
