I’ve been tagged in a meme by the lovely Penny from The Alexander Residence, and as we’re both taking part in NaBloPoMo, what better time to join in? This one is quite simple: 10 questions about me.
1. Describe yourself in seven words.
Reasonable, thoughtful, tolerant, quiet, determined, honest, hungry.
2. What keeps you awake at night?
My children, specifically Boy2. He likes milk in the night and lately has been getting up for the day before 5.00 am. Even at times when I have worries, they don’t stop me from sleeping.
3. If you could be anyone for a day, who would you be and why?
I’d be one of the children at Boy1′s nursery (don’t really mind which one) so I could see what really goes on when I’m not there.
4. What are you wearing right now?
Pyjamas (with vest and t-shirt, it’s cold).
5. What scares you?
Our finances. But it’s only really scary when I feel out of control – when I look at all the details and get organised it starts to feel ok.
6. What is the best and worst about blogging?
The best thing is the opportunity to build relationships and follow people’s lives. The worst is when it starts to feel like a chore and I feel overwhelmed by all the reading and commenting I’m ‘supposed’ to do. These things should be enjoyable.
7. What was the last website you looked at?
Apart from Penny’s blog for the questions… www.purenuffstuff.co.uk, planning some Christmas shopping.
8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I’d like to be more patient and calm in the face of irritation. And thinner, obviously.
9. Slankets – yes or no?
I do own one (it was a Christmas present a couple of years ago) but I very rarely use it. I don’t sit still for long enough. Take a foot or two off the bottom and add a button to the front so that you can walk around in it without tripping over and I’d be convinced.
10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you.
Penny is an excellent mother who knows how to teach children to wonder at the world.
I’m tagging people who’ve been kind enough to comment on my blog: Emma at Mummy Mummy Mum who is taking part in NaBloPoMo, and Alli from Mum 2 Four who isn’t but who has inspired me this week by getting on the cross trainer!
