Alphabet Blogging

I saw this alphabet blog post over on Martha's blog and I loved reading her answers. I really enjoy getting to know the writers behind blogs and so as she tagged everyone to do it I thought I'd give it a go myself. :)

A: Attached or single? Attached
B: Best friend? My Husband - Adam

C: Cake or pie? Cake I guess

D: Day of choice? Friday's pretty nice!
E: Essential item? My iPhone
F: Favorite color? White, it's just calm and pure.
G: Gummy bears or worms? Err, neither.
H: Hometown? Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire

I: Indulgence? These days? A shower, haha. Umm.. I'd say Dominos pizza, a good film, whilst snuggling up with my Husband, Ethan and my cats <3
J: January or July? July, January is cold.
K: Kids? Ethan -  currently 8 weeks old.
L: Life isn't complete without...? For me - Adam, Ethan, Sammy, Sooty, Shadow and Charlie. {Last four are my cats.}
M: Marriage date? 19th August 2012. Best day ever along with 17th April 2013 {Ethan's birth date}.
N: Number of brothers/sisters? 3 Sisters, 2 brothers.
O: Oranges or apples? Oranges. Satsumas preferably.
P: Phobias? I have loads! Insects and heights are my worst. 
Q: Quotes? This may sound strange bearing in mind the above but I never ever purposely hurt insects so.. "Teaching a child not to step on a caterpillar is as valuable to the child as it is to the caterpillar."
And another favourite is.. "You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
I have so many favourite quotes I honestly could just sit here telling you about them all day.

R: Reasons to smile? Love. It's beautiful. And having a child - when your child learns to smile at you it is indescribable.

S: Season of choice? Summer, I like being warm.

T: Tag 5 people: Rather then tag people, I'll leave it up to those who want to do it.

U: Unknown fact about me? I suffer with anxiety at times and it sucks. 

V: Vegetable? Do mushrooms count?

W: Worst habit? Over-worrying.
X: X-ray or ultrasound? What does this even mean?

Y: Your favourite food? Pasta, pizza, cookies, vegetarian chinese, Quorn. 

Z: Zodiac sign? Virgo {meant to be Virgo 'The Virgin'.. Ethan's existence begs to differ).

  2. Ooh I loved reading this! Thanks for posting. Great to find out a little more about you. I may give it a go over the weekend :)


  3. Ethan's been saying his favorite color is white lately, and yesterday one of his little friends said the same! I guess it is pretty calming!

    Also, love your Ethan's outfit in that photo -- it's adorable, and so is he!

  5. Will defo do this huni, Thank you i like reading about the person behind the writing lol :)

  6. So glad you did this! You have such a cute family! And I love that you list your cats as family :)

    Pizza and a movie with the family is always a good indulgence!

    I over-worry too. Sometimes it really drives me up the wall! I need to learn to manage it better so I don't age myself prematurely and die of a heart attack or something :P

  7. a brilliant post thank you for sharing (will try my best to do it too)! your son is such a cutie!!! he will be a heartbreaker!!

  8. This was great to read - its funny how we read so much about bloggers lives but don't know basic things about them!

    I suffer with anxiety too, it's horrible - and I'm also a Virgo. I think there's something in that - we're natural born worriers lol.

    Sparkles &
