I Thanks to @lazyhousewifeUK for my nomination. This is such a great way to meet other bloggers and find out more about each other, so here it goes;
1. Do you have any nicknames?
I have an awful habit that would, if he knew I did it, make my partner’s stomach turn. For some strange reason he has a real aversion to milk; it makes him feel sick. He can bare the smallest amount on his cereal and that’s it. So, he would would be disgusted by the fact that I regularly drink out of the milk carton. I usually do it whilst I am waiting for the kettle to boil and I suddenly crave something ice cold. I have also been known to spray him with some ‘other kind’ of milk too but we’ll not talk about that one!
6. Where is the most interesting place you have visited?
I am not very cultured and should really do more arty farty things. I don’t seek out museums and places of interest as such. Give me a good bar/pub, shopping centre and food and I am happy. A few years ago, before children, I took forty students on a school trip to New York that I organised. I had taught a lot of the students for a number of years and knew them very well; they were a great bunch. They most definitely made the trip interesting. I lost one boy in Bloomingdales as he ‘nipped off to find a loo’ and didn’t return for an hour. He never did find that toilet. One girl left over $200 dollars at the top of the Empire State Building in a Tesco carrier bag. (She got it back though.) And another girl, in the airport, got questioned by customs for a substantial amount of time because she apparently resembled someone on their ‘Most Wanted List’!!!
My favourite way to relax is with a cup of tea, some chocolate watching something good recorded on Sky or on Netflix. I barely watch live TV any more, unless it’s Peppa, Ben and Holly, Scooby Doo… The list is endless. The amount of Disney films recorded on our Sky box is ridiculous.
Again, not very original. I am afraid of spiders. And yet, if I see one I have to stare at it. I am also good at spotting them in my peripheral vision and will happily attack them with the vacuum and yet won’t stand on one in case I hear it crunch.
At the end of a hard day I love either a cup of tea, an ice cold lager or a glass of red wine. Tea is for Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I allow myself alcohol from Thursday onwards. Red wine is my favourite tipple at the moment. I don’t drink wine on the rare occasion that I go out as it makes me fall asleep in random places so I only drink it at home where I know my bed is near by.
10. What is your best parenting tip?
Always smile and tell your children that you love them more than they will ever know.
