Who is Mummy and the Chunks? Blogger Q&A

Wednesday, March 07, 2018

I was tagged by Colette at We're Going On An Adventure to answer a series of questions about myself. I tend to write a lot about what I am doing on my blog but I very rarely get to write about the little things that make me, well me! So here we go

When was the last time you cried?

Last week. I actually don't cry often. I am awful for bottling up my feelings and emotions until they all explode at once. I got all overwhelmed and cried and couldn't even pinpoint what had made me cry!

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

Definitely. I would say I am a good friend. I am always there for my friends and would do anything for them as would they for me. Therefore I would definitely want to be my friend!

Do you use sarcasm a lot?

Probably too much. It is a quality I seem to have acquired from my Dad. The sad thing though is that most of my sarcastic comments are lost on my children who do not get it at all!

What’s the first thing you notice about people?

I think the first thing I notice is whether they seem friendly or not. I am not much of a people person and hate approaching people. If they are really friendly though I can sometimes brave it and speak first! I find loud people quite intimidating on first meetings.

Scary movie or happy endings?

Happy Endings. Sam keeps making me watch scary films and shows and I am learning to deal with them but I do feel anxious and on edge afterwards. I do much prefer sitting watching a nice film and feeling all happy and relaxed afterwards.

Favourite smells?

I love the smell of fresh flowers and home cooked food (not together). I am a homely person and I love my home comforts. 

What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?

The furthest I have travelled is to the Dominican Republic. I had just turned 18 and me and a friend went on a girly holiday. It was a beautiful country and I learnt a lot of life lessons. I don't think I would go back though. 

Do you have any special talents?

Unfortunately not haha! I have never really found anything that I am particularly good at.

Where were you born?

Coventry, West Midlands.

What are your hobbies?

I wouldn't say I have many hobbies. It is hard when you have no time to find things you enjoy. I like going to music gigs and festivals when I can though. I also really enjoy taking photos of my family if that would be classed as a hobby!

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Over the years I have had many answers to this question. When I was small I wanted to be a pop star, of course. Then when I was a teenager I wanted to work with children until I did work experience in a school and saw the paperwork involved and how limited they were with time to actually enjoy teaching the children. Then I wanted to be a Psychologist but failed my A Level. I then wanted to be a holiday rep and studied Travel and Tourism at College. Then I became a Mum and my direction completely changed again. I am now 26 and still don't know what I want to do when I grow up.

How many countries have you been to?

Well the answer to this is less than I thought! Turns out I have only visited seven different countries. I have visited a fair few of the Greek Islands though and different parts of Spain. I thought I was well travelled but it seems I have travelled the same countries. I obviously need to write myself a travel bucket list and get working on increasing that number.

What was your favourite/worst subject in School?

My favourite subject was Art. I was never particularly talented at art, I was definitely an average student but I really enjoyed spending hours creating something and watching it transform I find it so relaxing. I was really good at Maths until I attempted A Level Maths which scarred me for life. My worst subject was PE. There were certain activities I enjoyed but I hated being forced to do the less fun ones.

What is your Favourite drink?

I am really bad and drink far too much fizzy pop. I don't drink alcohol often but when I do I usually drink Rose wine or Gin. 

What would you (or have you) named your children?

The only one I found easy was Gracie. I had heard the name once when I was a teen and fell in love with it. I knew that if I ever had a little girl that is what I would call her. Her middle name (Amelia) was the name of one of my great grandparents. I struggle with boys names and I can't remember how I decided on his name. His middle name (Adam) was decided as a friend of mine died around the time I found out I was pregnant and I wanted to name him in his memory. Elsie was almost 2 weeks old when I finally named her. I really wanted to call her Luna Daisy but ended up with Elsie Luna instead.

Who are some of your favourite YouTubers?

I honestly don't watch much Youtube. If I am planning on buying something or trying to learn to do something it is my first port of call but I don't tend to watch any Youtuber's.

How many Boyfriends have you had?

Just two. I am lucky to have found the perfect guy on the second try!

Favourite memory from childhood?

One of my favourite childhood memories was from a holiday to Corfu with my Dad and Step Mum. We were walking back to our villa in this secluded part of Corfu when we found ourselves surrounded by fireflies and it was magical. I am sure they have a photo somewhere of a Firefly cupped in my hands. 

How would you describe your fashion sense?

It is definitely different! I just wear what I enjoy wearing. Nice clothes make me happy and I love long skirts and pretty dresses. Sometimes I love a vintage look but my taste really does vary. I also love doing different things with my hair. 

Tell us one of your bad habits!

My worst habit is picking faults with myself. I am so harsh and judge myself all the time and I know I do but it is so hard to be kind to yourself!
