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!



  1. Love it. Great list. With you on the bricking through pregnancy and the work thing and the big gob thing! X

  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
    I did this meme last week! tis here http://podgypixiejo.blogspot.com/2011/03/fill-in-blanks.html

  3. Fab, fab list and I've only just seen it! I'd love to live by the sea too. I'll try and do mine next week x
