A Simple Exercise

The very lovely Multiplemummy has tagged me to answer 11 questions about myself. Sadly I don’t get to choose the questions myself, but that’s what makes it more fun.

1. Apart from your children, what was your greatest accomplishment?

It would have to be working my way up to a successful manager at the supermarket where I worked. I managed to do this whilst working part time and running a home with three children!

2. What is your favourite beverage?

I love a very unhealthy Hot Chocolate with lashings of cream and marshmallows!

3. Why do you blog?

I’m quite new to this still, but I blog because I am enjoying the interaction with other mummy bloggers and it’s great to have a record of what has been going on – Sort of like an online diary. I wish I had a record of my older ones as you really do forget!

4. If a pregnancy scan showed twins tomorrow, what would be your initial thoughts?

If I’m honest I’d be ecstatic, but then I’d panic – where would we put them for a start as we’ve barely enough room as it is and then there would be all the health worries as I had Gestational Diabetes with my last three pregnancies!

5. What is the hardest part of parenting to your mind?

Letting go and leaving the child to make their own mistakes. Having teenagers it makes your realise that you can only try and influence their decisions and when they get it wrong you sweep in and pick up the pieces!

6. What is your secret parenting weapon?

The best punishment (when they’re old enough to understand) is to remove their favourite toy!

7. What is your idea of blissful me time?

What’s that? I do love a facial or a fishy pedicure but haven’t had one for over a year. The best I get is a relaxing bath with a Lush bath bomb! (Preferably without a little person throwing toys at me or banging on the door demanding a wee wee)

8. Who do you think has the best job – the mummy or the daddy?

It’s Daddy in our house. Mummy = Food, Daddy = Fun

9. What thing do you recommend people do before they have children if they get the chance?

Travel – experience different cultures and explore. I really wish I’d done it!

10. What are your hopes for this year?

I hope that my 11 year passes his Grammar exam, that I get successfully registered as a Childminder and we manage to afford to get the things that need to be done to the house. (if we could manage a holiday that would be the icing on the cake)

11. Describe yourself in 5 words

Mummy, Wife, Agony Aunt, Friend, Daughter (is that cheating?)

So the bloggers I am tagging are:
