11 Questions

I have been tagged by the wonderful Mama Syder with this great 11 Question post.

So seems as I have an afternoon free as my other half has taken the kids to play with their cousins I have actually been able to do this tag post. I'm normally abit useless at completing posts that I get tagged in!

Right so the basic idea is Mama Syder has put together 11 Questions for me to answer, I answer them, then set 11 Questions for some other bloggers to answer, and the cycle continues...

So here goes.

1. Who was your first love or kiss?

  I was a quiet teenager, never really getting into going out with my mates into town or hanging around with boys, so my first love was Darren, who I met when I was 16, and we've been together ever since.
I have just spent the last hour searching for a photo of us together all them years ago, but can't find any from them first years, except this one, which was taken back in 2001 when we set up our Computer shop.

Sorry about the really poor quality! and heres one of us taken 10 years later in 2011

2. What is your favourite book?

I love reading, I will read anything at all, unfortunately I don't put aside enough time these days to read, Something I really should try to do more.

There are literally hundreds of books I have read through the years and such a broad variety, but the books which always stand out when I think of favourite reads, are a series by Virginia Andrews which I first read in my early teens (probably not that suitable reading for young quiet teenagers and had my mum took notice of the story she would of never let me read it)   The first in the particular series was a book called Flowers in the Attic, I read the whole Dollanganger series and remember being completely shocked by it; but compelled to read it and I could not put it down spending hour after hour tucked up under my duvet in the dark with a flash light totally engrossed in the words. Out of all the books I have read it is one that I can always remember. Maybe because it reminds me of my teenage years, the thrill of finding out about the unknown more so than it being amazing literature but whatever the reason Virginia Andrews books are always ones I pick out to have a read if I see one in a book store I've not come across before.

 3. What was your favourite childhood television show?

I remember loving the Animals of farthing wood,

 I also loved Simon and the witch!

4. When was the last time you cried?

I am pretty much an emotional wreck, and I cry easily, I cried watching one born every minute on Wednesday, anything full of emotions especially involving babies and I'll be sobbing!

5. What is a dream you have or something you'd like to accomplish in your life?

I would love to travel more, see the world.

6. What is something you wish you could change?

that's a tough one, I would love for people to be less quick to judge each other, I would love for money not to be so important and for society to be closer together. How I could change that I have no idea...  but maybe thats why I love being a Homestart volunteer.

7. What would you do if you could be invisible for one day?

I would follow my children to school, watch how they interact with their teachers, their friends. I would love to know how they behave without me there, see if they are capable of being sensible without me on their shoulders and if they are liked by their friends or if they sit on the out skirts.  My youngest is a real character full of smiles and is the joker of the family - always the first to make people smile, yet I know he isn't the same at school, on his first parents evening the teacher told me he was very quiet and serious!

8. What’s the funniest movie you’ve ever seen?

 I'm not a great movie fan and when I do watch movies I'm more for the thought provoking serious ones than the funny ones... errmmm oh yes, Theres Something About Mary is pretty funny. and it was the first movie me and Darren went to see at the cinema together!

9. What was your favourite toy as a child?

Thats Easy Sylvanian Families, I was a huge fan of them, and just recently my mum who had kept my entire collection, including posters and club magazines, in her loft for the past 20 years, found them all out and returned them to me, to share with Chloe, So I lovingly set them up in her bedroom and have ever since spent more time than is reasonable re aligning them after she has been playing with them!

10.What did you most get into trouble for when you were younger?

Like I say I was a good girl when I was younger, so there was nothing too major that I can remember that caused me to get into too much trouble, Things changed slightly when I met Darren and so most arguments between me and my parents started then, me honestly believeing I was doing no wrong, my Mum refussing to accept her little girl wanted to be independant.

But besides that, I remember when I was maybe around 9 or 10, me and sister walked home from school on our own and were latch key kids, my mum working in a nearby school returned home maybe half an hour after us. We were given strict rules to return home and stay put till she was back, one day we for some reason decided it would be fun to go play in the fields over the road, there were a few horses in the fields and my sister being totally horse mad, often wanted to go over there, Anyway this one afternoon we returned home then  decided to join a friend from school and venture across the field, we knew we shouldn't but risked it anyway, reasoning we would only be 10 - 15 minutes and could return home before Mum and all would be great. However we accidentally locked ourselves out and had to explain what happened when my mum arrived home!

11. Which movie title would best depict your life story? Why?

Ahh thats another hard one because I am not great with movies... errm is there any movies about a good girl turned runnaway rogue in her late teens who set up home and business before her 18th birthday, went on to make numerous mistakes in life but always tried to look on the positive side and make the most of what she had?... if so then yep that one!

    1. Thanks for joining in sarah. Love your answers! OMG 'Flowers in the attic', I forgot about those! Virginia Andrews is a legend! Love the photos of you & your other half, you look good together. Really enjoyed reading all your answers, you are a Star! xxx

      1. Thanks for Tagging me I enjoyed making this post :) x

    2. 'Flowers in the attic' great book, I remember my mum reading it and passing it to me.
      I also loved 'The Animals of Farthing Wood'', not sure what kids would make of it now, it's pretty gruesome at times. I remember crying my eyes out when Mr and Mrs Hedgehog got run over, oh and when Pheasant realised his wife was in a pie, and oh god when the horrible foxes killed Fox and Vixen's daughter! Eeeeep very harsh kids programme!

      1. yes I remember it making me cry on several occasions but it was better than the stuff which doesn't make you think at all like some of todays tv programms for the kids, I think chloe would love it.

    3. I love the idea of following your children around to see how they are without you. I would so love to do that to see how my son behaves at school.

      1. they always act different to how you think, so if I could I'd love to be a fly on the wall in their classroom :)

    4. Wow that's a really impressive Sylvanian collection!! My little girl would be 'well jell'!!!

    5. Thanks so much for tagging me Sarah :) I'm working on my answers right now. I'm very impressed with your Sylvanian Families display, I can see me being a bit like that with my son's Playmobil ("don't touch it! you'll mess it up!" lol). You answer to number is 11 is very intriguing, sounds like it would make a great movie! xxx
