A couple of week’s ago I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by the lovely Ellen at Babies, Biscuits and Booze. Ellen is such a lovely and kind blogger, and I really enjoy reading her blog. It’s full of parenting truths, as well as being funny too. So I was thrilled to receive a Tweet from Ellen nominating me. I really enjoy completing these tags, as it allows me to reveal a little more about The Pramshed to the wider blogging community, as well as giving other bloggers a chance to shine.
Here’s my answers for the questions that Ellen set for me:
What song is guaranteed to get you on the dancefloor?
It has to be Don’t Stop Believing by Journey. I’ve got it playing in the background now as I write this and it is making me want to get up and dance (I am drinking a glass of red wine too which might have something to do with it).
If you were reincarnated as an animal, what would you be and why?
Ooh tricky one. I think it would have to be a giraffe, as they are tall and elegant.
What’s your favourite item of clothing? (this is not a kinky question, soz if it sounds that way!!)
This is really boring, but it’s my skinny jeans. I could not live without them. I have so many pairs, it’s a bit ridiculous. Last weekend I bought two new pairs to add to the ever growing collection.
Which fictional character do you think you’re most like?
I have no idea. Sorry I am rubbish at these types of questions. Can I pass?
What’s your favourite wine? (or if you don’t drink wine, favourite beer/spirit?)
If it’s white wine, then my favourite at the moment is a Picpoul De Pinet. If it’s red wine then I love a chilled Beaujolais. I couldn’t find any in Sainsburys earlier, so I’m making do with Chianti which is also chilled. Weirdly I prefer a slightly chilled red to a warm red.
How regularly do you blog? Would you like to blog more often?
I try to publish a new blog post twice a week, plus my #fortheloveofBLOG linky post. As well as this I have all my reading and commenting to do throughout the week. My other blog admin tasks are trying to join at least one linky a week, and to schedule all my tweets. I’m also trying to get better at Facebook and Instagram. Since going back to work I have less time to blog, and I try to maximise my time by reading and commenting on my commute, then the rest is done in the evenings and at the weekend.
Which singer or band do you wish you could see live?
Fleetwood Mac. I love all their music, and I would love to see them. I don’t think I could ever get bored of listening to Fleetwood Mac. Or Dire Straits.
I don’t have a party trick, which makes me really sad. Do you have one and what is it?
I don’t have one either 🙁
What is your must-have item since having kids?
Gro-Bag (s). I couldn’t be without them. My daughter does not sleep under blankets, and always sleeps along the edge of the bed. I am wondering when she will sleep straight in the bed, and if she will ever be able to sleep under a duvet.
I am buying you cake. What are you having?
Chocolate Guiness Cake with a cream topping, and a latte. Thank you 🙂
To keep the award ticking on, I am nominating:
– Sarah at Mum & Mor
