A Little Q & A - Answering Your Questions

Hi everyone, I thought it was time I gave you, all my lovely readers, a chance to ask me anything you fancied really.  So after asking you all on my various social media accounts, I actually got rather a lot of questions back, some funny ones and some quite deep one eeek!!  I have tried to answer all of these questions and I have answered all of them completely honestly no holds barred, well I did say ask me 'anything'!  So without further ado, here goes.

Helz asked -
1. How long have you been bloggin for?  Just over 2 and a half years

2. If you could be any mystical creature what would you be and why?  Unicorn of course, I've always thought that, long before it became popular and they were all over the internet!  I've always loved horses and many different mystical/mythical creatures, but Unicorns have always been my favourite :-)
3. What would be your dream job?  Wedding planner, 100% my dream job :-)
4. What was your favourite childhood memory?  Dancing to Cliff Richard songs with my mum when I was little, that memory literally really makes me smile :-)

5. What was your favourite childhood programme?  Probably Bagpuss, I used to watch it sat on my mums knees when I was about 3, and every time it finished I'd cry.  It's so funny though, because whenever I hear the theme tune even now, it still makes me cry, lol I don't know why.  I also used to love The Magic Roundabout, Button Moon, Camberwick Green and The Moomins too :-)
6. What did you want to be when you were a kid?  At one point an opera singer, yep!

Emma asked -
1. If you could be any celebrity who would you be?  None, I'm not a fan of 'celebs' at all, so I honestly can't think of one.  I'd love to do acting or be a singer (as I do love to sing) but I don't think the fame and 'celebrity status' people have from these jobs is a good thing, people shouldn't be popular just because they're on tv etc, people should be liked because of who they are as a person not what they do or the fake personality they show the world!  Just my opinion, don't shoot me!!
2. If you just became a millionaire what would be the first thing you'd do?  I would treat my friends, pay off the bills, put lots away for savings and give a chunk of it to various animal charities.

3. If you could dress how you wanted without fear of judgement what would it be?  Goth :-D  I used to love wearing all that type of thing years ago, I still have a lot of the clothing, big boots, chains and spiked collars, ooh I loved it!  Bring on Halloween so I can wear it all again :-)
4. If you could move to anywhere in the world, where would you go?  I can't really answer this one because I haven't travelled and seen enough places, home is where the heart is, so lets just say where ever my heart takes me!
5. If you could be a superhero/villain, what ability would you have?  I think I would have to stick to being a hero rather than a villain and I would have the ability to heal.

Shelley asked -
1. Tell me about your proudest achievement!  This is a really hard question for me because sadly I cannot think of one thing.  There's a lot of things in my life that I regret, things that I wish I could've done differently but nothing that I'm particularly proud of.  If there's any good deeds I've done or kindness I've shown, anything like that, that's just things we should all do as human beings!  But no real big achievements.  The only one small thing I can think of, was during the last assembly just before I left school, I was called up on stage to receive an award for 'Most Achieved Swimmer of the year', because I couldn't swim before I went there.  So wherever that award is now, my name is on it :-)  Oh and a nothing small thing I just remembered, when I was at college during a singing lesson, I was told I could sing the highest notes out of everyone in my year :-)
2. What was your greatest failure and what did you learn from that?  Honestly, I let someone very close to me down in a big way a couple of years ago.  I wish I could say I learnt from it, but so far I've never been able to make it up to them and it still upsets me every day, I just hope one day I still get the chance.

3. What is most essential for budget shopping?  Save, save, save!  If you have a particular item in mind, save for just that one thing at a time and DO NOT get side-tracked and swayed into spending that money on something else (especially something you don't actually need, and yes this is my biggest down fall when it comes to saving).  Also bargain hunt, if there's something on sale in one shop, you can usually find it (or something similar) either somewhere else or online cheaper!
4. what's the best deal you've ever seen?  I am a hard core bargain hunter and I've managed to find so many amazing bargains over the years, and I guess the best ones are ones I've found online, especially dvds.  If you find the one you're after on Amazon and always click to check 'more buying options' button, you can buy them for so much cheaper than the listed price!  That's just the first one that springs to mind.
5. where do you see yourself in 5 years time?  In short, I've no idea, I don't even know where I see myself in one year or 6 months.  I just hope I'm happier than I am now.

6. What would you consider the most embarrassing experience you ever had?  Oh gosh I've had so many lol, I remember many years ago when I was in my late teens, I decided to wear my new pair of big black chunky platforms.  I'd been to town for the day and was on the way home on the bus.  For once I'd decided to sit on the top deck and I happen to notice this really cute guy sitting behind me.  It came to my stop (and his), I started to walk down the narrow spiral stairs (you know where this is going!!)  And yes I slipped and fell down the last three!  I was mortified, he asked if I was ok and I just mumbled 'yes I'm fine' really quickly and got off the bus as fast as I could, with my bruised ego and my bruised bum!  And I never wore those shoes again :-(  I still cringe about it but it was funny too, I think if that happened to me now though, I would definitely take more advantage of the guys concern and use it as a good flirting opportunity lol I was far too shy back then :-)
7. What was the craziest thing you ever did?  Ooh I hate this question and always dread getting asked it!  Because honestly I've never done anything crazy, or daring, or exciting, I've led quite a boring life.  I would love to say I've been sky diving or swam with dolphins but no, I went skiing once, though that's nothing out of the ordinary but I would really love to do something one day, so when I'm old I could look back and say yes I did this! :-/
8. Have you ever tried peeing while standing?  No I can definitely confirm, I've never done that either!
9. If you are ever asked to choose between love and money, which would you choose?  Love 100%, I'm an old romantic.
10. Have you ever embarrassed yourself in a public place?  Well yes, I guess you could say the whole 'falling on the bus' thing was generally in public, and yes there's been several other occasions as well!

Florence asked -
1. What do you like most about yourself?  I feel my self-confidence is better now than it ever has been in some ways more than others and depending on the situation, so probably that, that's the only thing I can think of anyway, I don't like much else!
2. What do you dislike most about yourself?  Most things if I'm honest, I wish I could concentrate on things more and wake up/get up a lot earlier, I feel that would make a big difference.  I get very down and depressed at times too, which can last several days and I have a job getting out of feeling that way, when I am feeling like that, I tend to take it out on everyone around me which I don't mean to at all, I hate that very much!

Amy asked -
1. What would be your ultimate day?  Ok I know a few of you may roll your eye's and cringe when you read this (yes you Shelley and Florence) but honestly I can not think of anything I would rather do more, than spend a day with Norman Reedus, just hang out with him and get to know him better.  I think he seems such a nice, genuine and interesting person and I would so love to just go to a nice little cafe with him, talk about motorcycles and rock music and his love of cats, and just have a lovely day with him :-D  Yep that's the dream!

I took this from the top of the waterfall!

2. Top 3 places you've visited?  Like I said I've never really travelled, but I did go to the French Alps for a week back when I was at school, that was wonderful.  I used to live near Seaford in East Sussex (near Brighton), that was always one of my favourite places.  I also love going to touristy type places here in Wales, there's so many and they're so beautiful - the last one I visited was Llanrhaeadr Waterfalls back in June a couple of years ago, that was stunning!  I'm off to Blackpool in just over a week with two of my bff's, just for a few days, not the most exciting place on the planet but it will be my first holiday just with friends and I'm SO excited, I can't wait, so expect a whole post on that when I get back.  There's still so many places I want to visit and would love to travel to, so I do hope I get chance to at some point.

Rebekah asked -
What is your day job?  Because of my health condition I don't actually 'work' or go out to work, I spend most of my days indoors at home and try to fill my time the best I can (when I'm feeling well enough to do stuff), with things like blogging, jewellery making, baking, card making and other crafts etc.

A few other questions -
1. If you could invent one rule for everyone to follow, what would it be?  Be kind to animals
2. What is your favourite pizza?  Hawaiian, oooh I love it :-)

3. What is your favourite app at the moment?  Is has to be Best Feinds, I'm obsessed and I play it most days.  I'm currently stuck on level 50 now and wow some of them are so hard to get through!!  But I'm really pleased because I haven't given in and bought any extra moves at all, I've done it all by pure skill lol
4. If you could have personally witnessed anything, what would you have wanted to see?  Has to be Glastonbury during the 70s, how cool would that have been!

5. Do you have a Zombie Apocalypse survival plan?  Well I couldn't not include a zombie question could I, thank you Enid ;-)  And yes, of course I most certainly do! Lol

As always I hope you liked this post and if you would like to answer any of the questions, I'd love to see your answers in the comments :-)
Until Next Time Stay Happy
