A Meme---- Fill in the Blanks

Hurrah! A Meme! I've been tagged by Mummy Walker at Love You Buckets. Here are my answers....



I am….
Desperate to live by the sea. In fact desperate doesn't cut it; I ache to live by the sea. Whenever I go down to the coast for a few days I actually want to burst into tears when I set off on the long drive home.
Heavier than I have been in a g e s. But I'm also happier than I've been in a g e s. Pre-Daisy I was a tidy 9 stone. Needless to say I weigh a wee bit more than that these days! But I eat healthily and I am f i n a l l y happy with my new body.
Loud. Not intentionally. People often say they have to hold their phones away from their ears when I call them. I can't help it. I just have a big gob.
Prepared to do anything for my friends and family. I love them. I will go out of my way to help them in any way I can.

The bravest thing I have ever done…
Is to give birth to Madam. I have to confess I was bricking it throughout my entire pregnancy. Of course I realised that women have done it since the dawn of time - and some have done it more than once! - so it couldn't be all bad. And it really wasn't. The adrenalin and the excitement of being so close to meeting my little person got me through!

I feel prettiest when…
I am comfortable. And that tends to involve flat shoes/boots/wellies and chunky knits! Whenever I get glammed up for a night out I get stressed.... my make up never looks how I want it to and I spend the evening pulling my top up or making sure I'm not flashing anyone. I much prefer being in comfy clothes - which don't have to be old sacks I hasten to add! I still like to make a bit of an effort!

Something that keeps me awake at night…
Is worrying about money and my family. And also my phone keeps me up a fair bit. I am a Scrabble addict. There, I said it. Sometimes I can't put the bloody thing down, even though its half past midnight and I have to get up for work at seven the next morning (I need a full eight hours don't you know!)

My favourite meal is…
either a 400g filet steak, medium rare, served with horseradish mash, wilted spinach and grilled portobello mushrooms
OR a great big F off cheeseboard. The smellier the better.

The way to my heart is…
With something simple and thoughtful. Or edible. I am not one to be impressed with expensive presents or flashy cars or exotic holidays to far away countries. If someone has really thought about me and what I like, then I melt. One of my favourite presents ever was from my brother's ex girlfriend. I collect Emma Bridgewater, and when Daisy was born she bought me a polka heart mug with 'Mummy' written on it. I cried!

I would like to be…
A Stay At Home / Work At Home Mum. Going out to work three days a week kills me. I hate leaving my little monkey with Himself or one of her grannies. Not because I don't trust them - of course I do! But because I hate missing out on things. Yesterday whilst we were in Sainsbury's Daisy pointed to the radishes and sang "mememememeeeee" (Mr Bloom's Nursery anyone?). I thought it was hilarious and phoned Himself to tell him. Only to be told she has been singing that at radishes for over a week. My heart broke a little bit.

Now for the nosey bit! I want to see others fill in the blanks! Over to you.... Uber Mummy, Jo at Witterings of the Overtired and Liz at Violet Posy!

  2. hee fab list! I too wish I could live near enough to see the sea every day without having to drive, but I do live close enough to smell it everyday at least, and for everything left outside to rust in a matter of days.... the sea is most awesome!

    Bless Daisy and her singing! My best mate went to school with Mr Bloom, I found out this morning! Not sure if that's a proper claim to fame though... heehee! xxxx
