Alphabet Blogging

I've seen this on pretty much all of the blogs I follow lately and so I thought I would join in!......

A. Attached or single? Attached

B. Best friend? Jon (my boyfriend) is my best friend. I've never really had a "Best Friend" as such - I have some close friends, but I tend to go through periods of being close to different I've moved quite a bit so it makes it difficult to keep up friendships!
One of my closest friends is Sarah - Tyne's GodMummy - but she lives in Devon so I don't currently get to see her very often :(

Me & Sarah on my Disney Princess themed 30th Birthday Night Out!

C. Cake or pie? Cake! Chocolate fudge cake especially.....Mmmmmm

D. Day of choice? I love Wednesdays as its one of Jons day off and usually the day we have a day out as a family and then a "date night" where Jon & I will go for a meal or to the cinema!

E. Essential item: My iPhone...its my second child!

F. Favourite colour: I love powder blue and soft pink.

G. Gummy bears or worms? Gummy worms, though I'm not mad on either!

H. Hometown: Liverpool! Calm Down, Calm Down!

I. Indulgence: At the moment - hot food! ha! No, usually I'd say my favourite indulgence is a massage - I reeeeeally love browsing Groupon for cheap massage deals and treating myself!!

J. January or July? January as I love the winter, plus I like the "fresh start" feeling of January!

K. Kids: One son, Tyne William Henry, who is 12 weeks old!

L. Life isn't complete without... Family & friends

M. Marriage date: I'm not married - though I'll let you all know a little something about me! I was due to get married on 4th December 2010 - It was all planned, paid for, booked, etc - it was a BIG traditional white wedding too, lots of planning done!  I called it all off about 3 weeks before the date! It was all very dramatic lol. I still have my wedding dress!! (It wasn't to Jon, btw!)

N. Number of brothers/sisters? I have one sister, Laura, who is 28. She has two lovely little girls and is currently pregnant with her first son!

O. Oranges or apples? Apples - oranges are too sticky!

P. Phobias: SO many I don't know where to start! Lets see - spiders, death, the dark, windows at night time (scared of seeing a face looking back at me!), heights, flying...I could go on!

Q. Quotes: "Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans" - John Lennon

R. Reasons to smile. Tyne, my family, my nieces. Lots of things really!

S. Season of choice. I have always loved winter as I love the snow, and I just LOVE December with the build up to Christmas etc!!

T. Tag 5 people. If you want to do it comment below with a link to your blog and I'll check it out.

U. Unknown facts about me? I can't drive. But I own a car. I reeeeeally need to actually take my driving test!

V. Vegetable? My fave veg is asparagus

W. Worst habit? It has always been biting my nails but since I had Tyne I've actually stopped! I think my worst habit now is picking at his cradle cap, I can't stop it!!

X. X ray or ultrasound? Well I'll go with ultrasound - because xrays are always for a not very nice reason, whereas ultrasounds can be happy things coz they can be to have a look at unborn babies?!

Y. Your favourite food. Oh hard to choose! I think my favourite kind of food at the moment is Mexican - I love spicy food!

Z. Zodiac sign. Virgo the Virgin - obviously!!!!! 

If you do this, please leave me a link - I'd love to read it!

  1. Gosh was it really 2010.... god that seems sooooooooo long ago xx

  2. Cradle cap is very pickable! I used to sit plucking away at Stacey's hair for hours when she was little. That's actually quite sad really isn't it? Lol.

    Great post, really enjoyed it and think you should tell us more about your wedding story! If Jon wouldn't mind of course, I wouldn't want to cause an arguement ;)
