11 Facts about Me:
1/ I love Gwen Stefani - I'm not a nuts fan that knows every minor detail but she is my fave, my idol, and yes I wish I could sing like her, dress and perform like her. When I was a teenager, I used to watch the 'Tragic Kingdom' concert over and over and over and sing and act like her hahaha. Have seen No Doubt twice and her own tour once. YES I will be going to No Doubt again when they come out next. This is me singing "Don't Speak" in Y10 hehehe
2/ Can't stand Winter. Hate cold. Hate hate hate it. So sick of wearing the same clothes and wearing layers really gives me the shits!
3/ I'm not a fan of cooking every night. If I could have a cook I would. Come back my cousin Sarah hahahaha she loves cooking and boy was it fab when they were visiting!
4/ Still after 6 months, feel awkward at play group. Haven't really connected with anyone yet, well thought I did with one parent but she doesn't come often due to work and another pregnancy and things.
5/ Sometimes I do the 'what ifs' when reflecting on the past. Like what if we didn't move to Adelaide and stuff like that, particularly in regarding friendships and things. But am also very glad I have experienced such a beautiful state. I love everything about here.
6/ I miss my doggies whom I left with my ex. Wish I had my own place so we could get a dog!
7/ I know why I waited till I was 29 to have my daughter. Even though she has been a great easy baby, this toddler business is full on. I especially love the angry yell she does when she wants something and isn't allowed to do it or have it. Oh mate. Oh and the "no" business and the battles to change nappies. She is also loving to spend every minute near me, which is very sweet, but also annoying at times when I am trying to have a shower or wash up. I know this is what happens, I have always known this is what happens which is why I waited for me to be 'ready'. Even though I'm 'ready' its still a challenge! How do people have four kids under four etc? Its beyond me!
8/ I don't drink enough water. Plenty of tea but not water on its own.
9/ Get my jealous eyes on sometimes. Especially when looking at artworks. However they only last a second cause then rationale kicks in.
10/ Am not interested whatsoever in ready this flippin 50 shades book and getting a bit sick of hearing about it and seeing those ecard joke things. And now here I am talking about it too! Arrrrrrrgh! Give me my Dean Koontz and Patricia Cornwell crime novels anyday. Although, I did read twilight series and Vampire Academy series lol. Bring on Breaking Dawn part 2 movie in Nov! woot woot!
11/ I really really miss going to see live music! Oh please can I go to the next Soundwave!
The Hesitant Housewife's 11 Questions for Me
1/ How long have you been blogging for? Since August 2010. Very small time and occasional to start with.
2/ Do you forgive and forget, or hold a grudge? I try to forgive and forget, but when it happens again sorry your prior offense has become relevant again!
3/ If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Rome, Thailand, England, Paris, India
4/ Have you ever had your heart broken? Yes many times in high school and also by friends too with perceptions/assumptions made by mis-communication.
5/ Have you ever broken someone’s heart? Yes unfortunately, but had to in order to be honest to both of us about how I felt. I didn't do it intentionally or maliciously.
6/ What is the best meal you have ever cooked? They are always ok. None are standing out as a winner! Definitely not tonight's meal. Think I failed that one!
7/ What makes you laugh? The quirky unpredictable things my daughter does. TV comedies. The shenanigans my friends get up to cause they are all nuts.
8/ What makes you cry? I'm a massive crier. If my feelings are hurt the tears come. Unfairness. Judgement. Also if someone expresses that I have upset them. I never intend to hurt others feelings so if I find out that something has been perceived that way I feel so awful that I cry! Yep. Animal cruelty. Finding out a gunman can kill a 3 month old baby point blank. Awful. Seeing sick kids. Not getting a job.
9/ What’s your favourite book? Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz. I cried at the end of this book hehe. Childhood.... hmmm.. The Witches by Roald Dahl especially the memory of my 4th grade teacher reading it.
10/ If you could live in a TV show, what would you pick? Bones. I would be a forensic photographer or something like that, or Bones newly found artist sister.
