Way back in November I was tagged by the lovely Michelle of Rockin’ Random Mom to take part in the 100 Truths Blogger Tag. Shamefully it’s taken me an age to get round to it but when I decided to take part in the #ABC123Challenge I pencilled this in as a good post for the letter B to make sure I finally got it done. So, B is for … Blogger Tag.

Yesterday at the thought of returning to work after 9 years, it was a mix of overwhelming emotions.

22 The last person you spoke to:

My husband.

23 The last place you visited:

We went to Bollyhope this morning and walked further than we’ve ever managed to get before. Mainly helped by the fact we left L with my parents.

24 Your last holiday abroad:

We went to Ras Al Kaimah in the UAE for two weeks just after Christmas. It was amazing. Wish we were back there now.

Have you ever?

Yes.

27 Have you ever cheated on someone?

No.

28 Have you ever lost someone special to you?

Yes.

29 Have you ever been so drunk you threw up?

30 Have you ever fallen out of love with someone?

No.

31 Have you ever met someone who changed you?

Yes. My husband has given me more confidence than I ever had before.

Sadly yes.

33 Have you ever kissed someone you probably shouldn’t have?

34 Have you ever found out people were talking about you behind your back?

Yes.

35 Have you ever broken someone’s heart?

I don’t think so.

36 Have you ever kissed a stranger?

Only once. I was young, drunk and trying to make a point. It wasn’t worth it.

No.

No.

No.

Yes.

Your Beliefs and Opinions

45 Do you believe in God?

No because it doesn’t make sense to me, but that doesn’t mean I’m right.

46 Do you believe in yourself?

Not as much as I should.

I believe in the spirit of Santa Claus.

Yes, but not in a religious sense.

No. Until you truly know a person it’s just lust.

53 Can money make you happy?

Not by itself but it can help by removing stresses.

54 Would you describe yourself as a feminist?

No. It’s a word that actually annoys me since it became the celebrity cause and I think the movement has strayed and become something ugly. I believe in equality for all.

55 Are you pro-life or pro-choice?

Pro-choice but I think the timeframe needs to be drastically reduced unless there are extremely strong medical grounds.

56 Do you have strong political beliefs?

No.

57 Do you have strong religious beliefs?

My husband took one of the purple fluorite stones we found on one of our walks and shaped and polished it into a heart for Valentine’s Day. It’s amazing.

67 If you weren’t answering these questions, what would you be doing right now?

Drinking hot chocolate and watching some crap tv.

Firsts

68 Your first best friend:

Esther. We were best friends for a year then she moved away.

This is terrible but I can’t remember his name. To be fair I was 6/7 and I was only at that school for 18 months.

70 Your first celebrity crush:

Jason Donovan.

71 Your first holiday:

It will have been camping but I don’t remember where the first one was. The first time I went abroad was to Canada to visit my sister when I was 18. My friend came with me for the first two weeks but I stayed for 7.

72 Your first pet:

The first one I remember was a Rottweiler called Max.

73 Your first regret:

I honestly can’t remember so it can’t have been bad.

74 Your first job:

My Dad used to have a market stall and I would help out at weekends, I rarely got paid though so after that it was babysitting.

75: Your first childhood memory:

I have a few but I don’t know which came first. I remember playing in the understairs cupboard with an ottoman for storing toys. I remember playing in a tent in the back garden with a little tea set. I remember bonfire night in our back garden with jacket potatoes, stew and toffee apples.

Which would you choose?

76 Love or money?

Love.

77 Twitter or Facebook?

Twitter.

78 Hook up or relationship?

79 Dogs or cats?

Cats. I love my dogs but the cats are a lot less work and lot more cuddly.

80 Coffee or tea?

Tea, I actually can’t stand coffee.

81 Beer or wine?

Wine.

82 Sweet or savoury?

Can’t I have both? It depends on my mood but sweet probably edges it.

83 Introvert or extrovert?

Introvert.

84 Vampires or werewolves?

Vampires.

85 Seaside or countryside?

That’s a hard one. I would love to live by the sea but I’m also loving the countryside we live in now.

86 Summer or winter?

Summer.

87 Books or movies

Books.

A few random questions to finish on

89 Do you wish you could change your past?

No, otherwise I might not be where I am now.

Anything happening to Keith or the kids.

93 What was the first thing you wanted to be when you grew up?

Nothing.

96 Would you want immortality?

No.

Choose a degree subject you’re interested in rather than what seems like a sensible option.

Earning enough that Keith can stop working away at Sea.
