Blog On Mosi Ice Breaker

I am so excited to be attending my first ever blogging conference with Karen and Lindsay this year. You can read about the conference here.

Huge thanks to Kara from Chelsea Mamma for hosting this linky so we can all get to know each other a little more.

I am probably better known for writing 'North East Family Fun' but feel like this post is better suited on this blog which is where I write more about my life and blogging.

1 - Share a recent picture of you

2 - If you had to describe yourself in three words…….
Organised, hard-working, generous

3 - How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
I've been blogging for around 6 years although it was very sporadic to start with. I started my main blog (North East Family Fun) three years ago as a sort of mini tripadvisor for the North East as people always used to ask my advice for where to go with the kids.

4 - What was your favourite TV program as a child?
I always loved watching button moon!

5 - Something interesting you might not know about me is . . .
I started adult life training to be a geneticist....

6 - What is the weirdest food you have ever eaten?
Snails and Frogs legs in Paris

7 - What was your biggest fashion faux pas?
Hmmmm probably fluorescent shell suits in the 80's and 90's

8 - What are you pet peeves?
People who are offended for the sake of being offended, inequality and not being allowed to take your kids out of school to travel without the fear of facing a fine.

9 - Who would be your 3 perfect dinner party guests (dead or alive) and why?
Amy Winehouse - would love to have heard her perform life, Holly Willoughby - she is just perfect!, my grandma - I wish I could see her again and ask her the questions I'll never be able to.

10 - If they made a movie of your life, what would it be about and which actor would play the part of you?
It would be about a stressed mum who makes the most of life and loves to show her children the world. I would be played by Amy Adams (I wish!)

11 - If you could live in any sitcom, which one would it be?
Outnumbered seems fitting.....

12 - Name a famous person you have met
Scott Mills, Sarah Willingham, Scarlett Moffett ! LOL!

13 - Which social media platform best describes your personality and why?
Facebook - I love to discuss current issues

14 - What picture do you have on lock screen on your phone / computer?
My three children at Alnwick Garden

15 - How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Too many - I only wear the same three pairs - boots, heels or flats

16 - What period of time from the past would you most like to have lived?
70's! I love the film American Hustle - so glamorous
17 - If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I would love to visit Cuba - hopefully the plan for 2017

18 - What is your guilty pleasure?
Towie and Geordie Shore

19 - What is your favourite tipple?
Sauvignon Blanc, Disarranno on the rocks, Malibu and coke, English Sparkling Wine, Champagne or pretty much any cocktail.

20 - If you had a magic lamp and a Genie, what would be your three wishes
1 - Our family was granted 6 months off work and paid to travel around the world
2 - That my husband didn't have to work such long hours
3 - That junk food contained negative calories!
