11 questions

Hope you have all had a happy weekend!
I am currently sat on the sofa, stuffed full of apple crumble and custard, looking at blogs and have just discovered I have been tagged by lovely Ada at Vintage Sheet Addict.

Now, as you all know, I am a bit rubbish at stuff like this but I would love to have a go at the questions because I know how much I enjoyed reading about Ada!

1. Radio 1 or Classic FM?
Neither really, I'm a radio 2 girl, especially Liza Tarbuck and Graham Norton

2. Favourite tipple?
Crabbies ginger ale

3. What super power would you have?
To overcome tiredness!

4. All time favourite song.
Take on Me by A-ha. I had the biggest crush on Morten Harket and wished I was the girl in the video to this song with all my heart.

5. Perfect Sunday.
My Mum's roast chicken dinner, an autumn walk with Morten (that's the dog, not the man, I think) and a good film like Juno or A Touch Of Class with a young Glenda Jackson.

6. Tea or coffee?
Tea, tea and more tea.

7. If you could invite anyone for dinner, who would it be?
I would love my Nana to have met my children now that they are older. She held Maisy but never met Soren. She would have loved them.

8. Best Piece of Advice.
You won't wish you had spent more time cleaning when you are on your death bed!

9. What would you do with one million pounds?
Open a small rescue shelter for dogs, open a B&B at Sands End in East Yorkshire, take the kids to see the Northern Lights in Tromso, Norway, buy my husband all the music stuff he wants, i could go on and on....!

10. What one word describes you?

11. What infuriates you?
Meanness, thoughtlessness and my printer when it won't work!

I'm not going to tag anyone because doing all the links would just push me over the edge, my technical skills being what they are! I will be hoping that some of you have a go though, because I want to nosy! :)

It's our wedding anniversary this week too..........


  1. Yes links take lots of time!!! Wish there was a quick way! Ada :)

    1. Ada, I'm sorry I just realised I answered the wrong set of questions! I am a wally! Xx

  2. It's nice to know a little more about you - and Happy Anniversary too! x

    1. Thank you, we aren't doing anything special because it's on Tuesday, and Tuesday's are double footy training days :( xx

  3. I love A-ha, it is on of my number one 80s-love-bands!! Magnus played one of their albums for me short after we met and I kind of knew that he is my man :)

    Have a lovely Anniversary :)

  4. Lovely to learn more about you .... Ada had tagged me too so I will have to try and complete the linky thing ... can all get a little confusing ... congratulations on the wedding anniversary ... ours is this week too ... Bee xx

  5. Oh I am a bit stupid and answered the wrong set of questions! Oh well, I will enjoy reading yours! Happy anniversary to you too Bee! Xx

    1. Ditto Tuesday ... ours was eight years ago ... Bee x

  6. Happy Anniversary for Tuesday! I had thought that there was an A-Ha link to Morten's name - now I know! Remember the song but not the video!

    1. We like to call him Morten Barket because we are silly in our house! :) x

    2. That's a brilliant name, I had wondered if it was an A-Ha reference when I first saw your blog!I remember the song and the video sooo well!

  7. A-Ha... that's the 80's right? I remember I was listening to Rick Astley a lot then... Never Gonna Give You Up.

  8. Happy Anniversary to you and your husband. So fun to know a little more about you and what you are like. And now I know why Morten is called Morten! x

  9. Lovely reading about more about you and hope you have a fab anniversary! x

  10. Happy Anniversary! It's lovely to learn a little more about you. I'll be doing the questions - I think I need a cheerful post after my last one! xx

  11. Classic for me - though only at this time of year otherwise I jump between 2 and 4...Radio 1 started annoying me years ago.

    Happy anniversary for this week - I hope you have something super planned.
