A-Z of me.


I must be one of the last to do the A-Z of me, but here's my answers if you're interested.

A - Age.
30. According to Wikipedia, if I was a piece of clothing I could now ‘officially’ be vintage. I like being 30 – I feel like I can finally be myself and sod what anyone else thinks!

B - Bed Size
Double. I’d like a bigger one but it won’t fit in our bedroom.

C - Chore you hate.
All of them, although clothes washing isn’t too bad.

D - Dogs.
Dogs themselves aren’t the problem, it’s stupid dog-owners I can’t stand. Actually, with a lot of ‘problem’ pets it’s stupid people who cause most of the problems. Don’t get me started on that one!

E - Essential start to your day
A cuddle with Baby Bird and tea!

F - Favourite colour.
That’s a tough one – I love colours and there’s a different for every mood. If I had to choose, I suppose green or blue as I have a lot of those in my wardrobe and house.

G - Gold or silver.
Silver. It’s much more mysterious (and cheaper!). The only gold jewellery I have is my engagement and wedding rings.

H - Height.
5’4”.

I - Instruments you play.
I played the flute (badly) at school and can pick out a few tunes on a keyboard. I’d really like to go back to the flute, but I have too much else on my plate at the moment.

J - Job.
Full-time Mummy, no-time house slave, wannabe vintage clothes seller.

K - Kids.
Just the one little boy, but hopefully another one day.

L - Live.
In Bristol, in a semi built in 1938.

M - Mothers name
Kay.

N - Nicknames.
I used to get called some pretty horrible things at school, but I’ve blanked them all out now. Now it’s usually just ‘Mummy’ (from the husband as well).

O - Overnight hospital stays
3 nights, all when Baby Bird was born. He was meant to be born at home, but he was taking his time so the midwife decided we needed to go into hospital and it’s routine to be kept overnight with a first baby. We had to go back in a couple of days later as he wasn’t feeding properly and his weight dropped more than it should have. It all got sorted out in the end though.

P - Pet peeves.
Where to start!

Q - Quote from a film

My second favourite film – Labyrinth.
Jareth: You remind me of the babe.
Goblin
: What babe?
Jareth
: The babe with the power.
Goblin
: What power?
Jareth
: The power of voodoo.
Goblin
: Who do?
Jareth
: You do.
Goblin
: Do what?
Jareth
: Remind me of the babe.

 

R - Right or left handed.
Left handed.

S – Siblings
One brother, eight years younger than me.

T - Time you wake up
Around 7 if I’m not working. Usually woken up by baby bird babbling and then he’s brought in for a cuddle. Work mornings it’s 4am!

U - Underwear.
Always!

V - Vegetable you hate.
Asparagus – might as well eat sticks!

W - What makes you run late
Everything – I’m very disorganised. If I’m on time, I’ve usually forgotten something.

X - X-rays you've had.
Just teeth, no interesting ones.

Y - Yummy food that you make.
I’ve had compliments about my cakes, so they must be pretty good.

Z - Zoo animal
Can’t really choose, I like most animals.

Yay, you did it. And you are now even higher in my estimation for loving the same bit of Labyrinth as me!
