The A - Z of me......

I have been tagged in the latest meme going round, by the rather funny Actually Mummy.  This is where I get to answer questions about myself in the form of A-Z questions.  Now as a pretty private person this is my idea of hell BUT as I am also not one to let the side down, here goes.. 

ANORAK…Do you have a sad side? 
I am a bit of a technical geek, blame it on 20 years working in IT.  Plus I have a great love of anything Sci-fi.  Does building Lego count as being a bit sad?  Also I do love a good documentary on the telly?    

BODY…What physical attribute would you most like to change? 
I am actually pretty happy with my lot; it has done me well and is still looking okay after all it has gone thru.  But I do wish I wasn’t so fair, pale, white or blue as my sister calls me.  Would be nice to not have to get a tan out of a bottle at times..

CELEBRITY…Which one would you most like to date and why? 
Move over Brad Pitt and Jonny Depp and hellooo David Tennant.  I am not sure how a pasty skinny Scotsman has become my object of affection but he has.  There is just something about him perhaps it’s his cheeky grin or his dulcet Scottish voice.  He can whisper in my ear anytime.. 

DEBUT …Tell us about your first ever blog post. What made you start blogging? 
Funny enough my first post was about me and why I started to blog.  Which basically was because I was made redundant and Mr P thought it would be a good thing to do to keep the grey matter ticking along..

ERROR …What’s been your biggest regret?
I don’t think I have any regrets really other than some blokes that I wish I hadn’t bothered with. 

FUNNY – who’s making you laugh? 
Well that would have to be my two boys of course.

GRAND…If we gave you one right now what would you spend it on?
If I was working and you gave it to me, I would spend it on either a new handbag or a family weekend away.  But as I am not I would put it away for a rainy day, boring but sensible..

HOLIDAY… What’s your favourite destination?  
Without a doubt it would be Africa.  Mr P and I have been fortunate enough to do a bit of travelling and this was the best place by far.  I can’t wait until the boys are old enough so we can take them back.

IRRITATE… What’s your most annoying habit? 
I tend to drink too much, I don’t have an “off switch” according to Mr P..

JOKER…Whats your favourite joke {the one that makes you laugh everytime you hear it}? 
“You can have a lie in, in the morning”.  Yeah right!

KENNEL… Do you have any pets?
No, but have promised the boys a dog when we eventually head back to NZ.

LOVE…Are you single, married, engaged, living with a long term partner? 
Married, together 17 married 10...  A lifetime...

MEAL… Whats your ultimate starter, main and dessert?
Easy, scallops to start, perfectly cooked Lamb for main and then some sort of sticky or chocolate desert, followed of coursed by a nice coffee.  Wine, of course served thru out.. 

NOW…If you could be anywhere right now where would you be and who with? 
We would be back in NZ with our families.

OFF DUTY…What do you do in your spare time? 
Spare time, what’s that? 

PROUD MOMENTS …What are you most proud of?
Has to be the birth of my two big bouncing boys...

QUEASY …What turns your stomach? 
The cruelty that the human race can afflict on each other, sometimes it makes be ashamed to think that we all come from the same gene pool..

RELAX…How do you relax?  
With a nice glass of wine, preferably a sauvignon or pinot noir..

SONG…Whats your favourite song of all time? 
Ziggy Stardust, I had the words written on my bedroom wall as a teenager.  My mum wasn’t too impressed with that..

TIME …If you could go back in time and relive it again, when would you choose?  
My early twenties, when I was young and single, and having a blast.  However I would like to go back with my 40 year head so I can stop myself from making stupid mistakes...  (See E above)

UNKNOWN…Tell us something about yourself that no one else knows?
Now that would be telling... Something’s are not for telling..

VOCAL…. Who is your favourite artist?  
David Bowie

WORK….. What is your dream job, and are you doing it now?  
I was doing my dream job, managing an IT team, working in the media industry, able to wear jeans everyday..  That all I wanted, eventually it happened and then I got made redundant from it..

XRAY…Any broken bones?
Nothing broken yet, touch wood..

YIKES…What’s been your most embarrassing moment? 
Being hit by a car outside a very busy bus stop after work..  There were people everywhere.  Truly embarrassing, the car wasn’t going that fast so I was able to pick myself up and limp away rather quickly...

ZOO…. If you were an animal, which one would you be? 
It would be a lioness, lying about in the sun all day, others around to help with childcare and not having to worry about what to eat as someone else was feeding you.  Sounds like bliss don’t you think?

So now I am going to tag the following lovely bloggers, apologises if you have already been tag or if you don’t want to do it...

It was created by the Real Housewife of Suffolk County, so you can find the blank template here...

Wow! That's amazing. Some serious thought and effort going on there. Thanks for the tag. Might take a while but I'll enjoy doing it. Scallops for starters? Decadant woman. But fantastic choice.

Frankie P said...

Oh yes do love Scallops.. quite strange as i don't really like fish but love some types shellfish...
Thanks for the comment

Mañana Mama said...

Wait, do you mean to tell me you're not actually a lionness???

Lovely list! Thanks for the tag...will get cracking on it :)

Actually Mummy said...

Ha! You've got my irritating habit - we could be drunken sisters together embarassing everyone else (for clarification this is Mummy talking, not GG - don't want social services round). Great a-z :)

Actually Mummy said...

You're going back to NZ???? No! I won't hear of it. Are you at least going to Britmums Live first?? So we can drink too much and embarrass ourselves ;)

Time Flies said...
