So in about three weeks time (ish), I’ll be driving the joyful 250 miles up to Manchester to attend the BlogOn conference. Yay! It’s the first time for me but I seriously cannot wait. I have been lucky enough to get a hotel near the event (for free thanks to my father-in-law!) so I can also go the the launch party the night before and meet some new people. I’m so glad to be staying in a hotel as I don’t want to be driving the 500 mile round trip in one day (8 hours of driving in one day would kill me!).
Anyway, every year there’s always a BlogOn get-to-know-you linky, where you can answer some questions so other people who are also going can get to know you before actually meeting you. This time Jenny at The Brick Castle created this list so let’s just crack on:
Please share your favourite photo of you.
I used to wear such heavy make-up but now I prefer just a wing and a bit of eyebrow gel, a bit more of a classic look. Recently I have been following a french skincare routine and it’s made my skin look amazing!
If you could choose a band to play in your garden for your birthday, who would you pick?
If I could bring back Freddie Mercury then it would always be Queen!
What do you take with you for long visits to the toilet?
My phone, but if I forgot it then it would be whatever product is near me so I could read the description and ingredients. I hate not having anything to read!
What word can’t you spell?
Business. But thank god for autocorrect!
What’s the most unusual job you’ve ever had?
I have only had two jobs, the Co-op bakery (then night supervisor) and the vets. So I guess the vets as no day is ever the same and you can sometimes see some weird stuff!
Knitting, sewing or crotchet?
Knitting. I’m a dab hand at knitting when I have the time, I can sew but not very well and I can’t crochet to save my life.
Without looking it up, what is a jerkinhead?
I heard someone mention it before in either a car or house situation??
If you could have as much of one food as you wanted forever, what would it be?
Calipo ice lollies 😜
What is the scariest thing you’ve ever done?
Standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon and looking over. Even thinking about it makes me shiver as there are no railings there, I could have slipped!
If you needed a getaway driver, who would you choose?
My brother from another mother Dan!
Would you rather live in Narnia or at Hogwarts?
What snack food says ‘Christmas’ to you?
Salted peanuts. I honestly eat a couple of tubs worth.
Is there life on Mars?
Yes. Not as in ‘Oh look there’s an alien’ but I believe there are micro-organisms on Mars. We cannot be the only planets which houses life, we are a mere speck in the galaxy.
Which Christmas movie would you be a character in, and who would play you?
I’m not really a Christmas film person so I’m just going to go with Love Actually. I would be Natalie who would be played by Audrey Tautou (I look nothing like her but she is a fab actress!).
What are you proudest of?
Ah now this one is easy and I’m guessing all of the other parenting bloggers have answered the same. It would be my beautiful daughter, Jade. I never realised how incomplete my life would be without her ❤️
Well there we go! That’s all my answers completed and I hope whoever is reading this can get to know me a bit better for when we meet in Manchester! It will be my first BlogOn but luckily I’m not a shy person.
See you then!
