My Answers

1 – What movie/TV show is one of your automatic picks to lift your bad mood?

I love watching Ambulance or 999 What’s Your Emergency, 999 On The Frontline those kinds of shows. It helps to remember that there are some beautiful people in this world with good hearts. All our carers are amazing people and its great to see when I’m feeling low. I love recognising people from those programmes on the telly when I’m out responding. I recently saw the air ambulance crew which was lovely, they have a fab job!

2 – What was the name of your first pet?

We had lots of goldfish, I don’t remember their names as there were too many over the years. My first proper pet was a rabbit but I couldn’t tell you what she was called, it was a bit offensive but not meant to be!

3 – What is the most embarrassing thing to have ever happened to you?

When I did my skydive, the instructor said we would land on my bum as it was more padded (from the suit I had to wear). I didn’t mind, he was right 🙂

4 – Did you have a childhood celebrity crush? If so, who?

No, I didn’t really have any crushes. I did like Peter Andre at one bit but I wouldn’t say I really had a crush on anyone.

5 – What are you most looking forward to achieving in 2021?

I’m looking forward to getting on with my first novel, January is going to be busy so I’m looking forward to getting on with it over the next few months. I’ve joined a writing association which will guide me in the right way. My book is started, I just need to develop the storyline and characters. I have taken part in lots of webinars during my evenings recently and I have a full day of them on a Saturday coming up shortly, they will help me with my writing skills.

6 – How many hours a day would you say you spend across all your social media apps?

Too many! My phone thinks about 3 hours average. This has crept up since blogging and checking the news for anything to do with the virus. I’ve put a limit on now to 2 hours, really want to get it down to that. I hardly used to spend any time on my phone, I feel sad because I felt better for it. I need to get back to that.

7 – What would you say is your favourite of all the four seasons?

Definitely Summer, I only like Winter when it snows. I love reading a book in the sunshine in the garden, wearing summer clothes and having lighter nights. I love BBQ’s and music in the garden.

8 – Tell me a little more about your taste in music?

I can listen to most music genres, I used to like a lot of R&B and 90’s, now I would say my favourite is 80’s or chill out.

9 – What motto or phrase do you tend to live by?

Be Kind, always be kind!

10 – What is your favourite choice of takeaway food?

I do love Greek, Thai or Chinese. Chinese is my go to choice, our local does a lovely Salt & Pepper munch box.

11 – What are your main blogging goals in 2021? Feel free to link a post if you’ve written one!

Here’s my 2021 Goals post, I would like to post once a week, learn more about SEO and photography. As a hobby blogger those aren’t at the top of my list but if I do get some time I would love to learn more.

  2. A novel! How exciting. That’s definitely something to look forward to.
    2-3 hour a day on social media is at least manageable. I hate to think what my social media usage is, I’m trying to cut down a lot.
