I was given two liebster awards in August. One from Leanda and the other from Steph. Thanks to Steph who blogs here, you get to learn a bit more about me. Again. :)
You have 30 minutes all to yourself, what do you do? I know I shouldn't, but I usually do a quick whip around and clean up or hang washing. I need to learn to relax.
Sometimes I go out in the garden to look at something and pull a weed, which ends up turning into lots of weeds and time gets away. It's a good way to waste time.
What do you prefer – chocolate tart or cheesecake? This is like choosing a favourite from my children. Is it even possible? I do love a good cheesecake, and I do love dark chocolate. Is anyone offering dark chocolate cheesecake?!
What’s the best advice that you've been given? Oh god. I was thinking about this the other day and I thought of it, that little bit of golden advice, but it has slipped my mind. Mum did tell me once though, not to stress about the house looking like a bomb hit it. She said that when you have kids, no one expects your house to be spotless. Good thing that, because my house rarely is.
How many siblings do you have? I am the oldest of five children. I have two sisters and twin brothers.
Your favourite thing to do on a date with a loved one? Me and Boggy (that's what I call my husband. It's an old nickname his dad gave him. Short for Bognut. You know. Bog=shit, nut=head). Any way Boggy and I, had a night in a motel a few months ago. Had a swim/spa, we went to an egyptian restaurant. Went for a lovely walk afterwards. Had a drink at an establishment and then went back to the hotel. That was a nice night.
Do you have a brown thumb or a green thumb? Most definitely a green thumb. I like to garden, I have an interest in plants. All sorts, herbs, veggies and flowers.
I've made a garden in every house I've lived in since I was 20. I can't imagine not having a patch of dirt to grow something in.
What’s something nice that someone else has done for you? Looked after my kids while I had a nice peaceful break. I probably did house work!
Describe your staple outfit. Jeans or trackies. A shirt. Thongs or sneakers. Of late I've been donning my rubber boots(they're fancy) to feed the chooks, or in the garden. Even wore them down to the hardware store last week.
Your dinner last night was…. Ha. Homemade hamburgers. The 'black and gold' frozen variety, with 'homebrand' white bread, sliced cheese, fried egg and salad. Fancy. We'd been to the annual show in the morning and had visitors in the afternoon, while I decorated birthday cakes. I had a care factor of zero, when dinner time came around.
What’s your quirky habit? I had to think about this one overnight. I give myself direction, out loud. So everyone can hear. My head is such a jumbles sometimes, I have to tell myself what to do. I'm one of those mad bitches who talks to herself. Haha.
What reminds you of your childhood? Lollies. Music. Fresh cut grass. Crochet blankets. Hearing the local footy games from the house.
