BLOG ON CHRISTMAS JUMPER 2017 LINKY

So a bit late, but as they say better late than never eh?. I am attending Blog on in Manchester this weekend, which is a blogging conference. My first time, like a virgin, hey!

 Petrified is putting it lightly in terms of how i am feeling, but i know this is going to be such an incredible opportunity for me to learn more about blogging and expand my knowledge, i am a firm believer in the saying - there is always more to learn.

 Even though i am so nervous, i am really looking forward to making some new friends and meeting some friends that i have spoken to for a long time in the blogging community.

Please share a photo of you.




If you could choose a band to play in your garden for your birthday, who would you pick?

This is a tricky one, i have so many favourites, i think i would have to go for Reel Big Fish, it's definitely a band for all occasions :)


What do you take with you for long visits to the toilet?

Unfortunately long visits to the toilet are luxury now we have our newest addition to the family, 11 week old baby Nila, but would usually be my iphone.


What word can’t you spell?

Honestly, i haven't a clue.. thanks to auto spell check ha!


What’s the most unusual job you’ve ever had?

I have always worked in the health care industry but when i was younger as a Saturday job i used to help out at a clay shooting site, very boring and very cold! 


Knitting, sewing or crotchet?

I love sewing!.I own 4 sewing machines, probably £1,000 in material , went to college to do dressmaking and wanted to start my own clothes making business but never did.


Without looking it up, what is a jerkinhead?

Have not got a clue! it sounds a bit rude,or is that just my mind? let me google it - depends who your asking then ha!


If you could have as much of one food as you wanted forever, what would it be?

Extra strong mints, i know, you are probably thinking what?- it was my pregnancy craving with Nila, and nearly 3 months down the line i still crave them, crunching up to 10 packets a day, and i have not had any for 3 weeks, it literally feels like i am quitting an addiction. Scott,my partner sent me this picture and said Nila would come out like this if i didn't stop eating them- cheeky sod!



What is the scariest thing you’ve ever done?

For me, would be this event, honestly, for someone who suffers with anxiety, doing something like this, alone, with no children to hide behind or a partner to take the lead, it is very scary!


If you needed a getaway driver, who would you choose?

It would definitely be Scott for sure, my partner, for one he loves a good gossip and we are the first people each of us go to when there is new gossip and two, he can drive so bloody fast so i would be out of here in no time :)


Would you rather live in Narnia or at Hogwarts?

oh that is a tough decision, i would stop over Narnia for the night, then Hogwarts, then make up my mind...or is that cheating ? :)


What snack food says ‘Christmas’ to you?

Twiglits!!!!!!


Is there life on Mars?

There has got to be-  to believe we are the only living beings in the whole entire world and there is no other life form on any other planets? come off it !


Which Christmas movie would you be a character in, and who would play you?

I would LOVE to be Kevin in Home Alone, i know he gets left behind and has the worst time ever, but come on, before that he has so much fun!!


What are you proudest of?

My children - i know that is probably the obvious answer, but i honestly am. The older two girls are 14 and 8 and they really are blossoming and growing into beautiful young little ladies.

  11. Come and say hi if you see me, Kira - and apologies in advance for when I stare blankly back at you as I have the world's worst memory for names and faces! I think we all feel petrified before our first blogging conference - some of us are terrified even though we've been to several and presented at them ...

  13. Congratulations on your littlest one! The only word that I hate spelling is convenient! My auto-correct always comes in handy for this! I mix up the e and the i. haha!

  16. Hope you've enjoyed the BlogOn conference this weekend. Good work on challenging your anxiety. I know how hard that can be.
    Your other half saying Nila was going to come out looking like an extra strong mint made me laugh out loud. I can't believe how many you ate a day. They do say mint is good for your digestive system, mind :)
