Tagged, I got tagged. I didn't really know what it meant but it made me feel like a proper blogger when Anne tagged me. I have ignored it for a week mainly due to lack of time but also because I was a bit daunted by doing this post. Then I decided it might be fun?? As I tell my boys if you don't really want to do something but know you should then just enjoy it and get on with it. So here goes ....

My Mother's Day Flowers from my Mother!

These are the rules...

^ Post these rules
^ Post 11 things about yourself
^ Answer the questions provided by the one who tagged you
^ Create 11 new questions for the people you tag
^ Go to their blog and tell them they've been tagged!

Eleven things about me:

  1. I am the youngest sister of four daughters;
  2. I have recently discovered a love of fonts;
  3. I have a phobia of birds in confined spaces;
  4. I grew up on a farm;
  5. I'm not very good at housework;
  6. I used to collect buttons and pigs;
  7. I hate been told what to do;
  8. I used to wear black all the time now I wear colour all the time;
  9. I once had a pig called Charlotte;
  10. I once drove a tractor into a house;
  11. I always wonder what I'll be like when I grow up.

These are the questions set by Anne with my answers

  1. Do you buy new or vintage for your home? Both
  2. Why do you blog? I use it as a diary, a way of remembering both my family and business adventures.
  3. If you were invited to make a piece of art, what medium would you use? Paper.
  4. What clothes are you most comfortable in? Jeans, boots and comfy jumper.
  5. If you had an unexpected afternoon to yourself and not a care in the world, how would you spend it? I would read a book uninterrupted or go to Anthropologie.
  6. What do you panic most about losing? My car keys, my way and time. I hate to be late and I hate to get lost.
  7. What is your favourite quotation? What Goes Around Comes Around. I believe this so much I engraved it on a silver bangle that I wear whenever I go out.
  8. What is your ideal holiday? Any holiday is ideal, I am very easily pleased.
  9. If you wear lipstick, what shape is the end, once it’s no longer new?  Don't wear lipstick I'm a lipgloss girl.
  10. Do you have a habit you would like to drop or one you would like to adopt? I'd like to lose irritability and adopt a healthy eating/exercise habit.
  11. What everyday article would you most miss if it were suddenly unavailable? Teapot.
My Mother's Day Flowers not from my sons. 

These are the eleven questions I have, some replicated because I thought they were so good!

1. Why do you blog?
2. Do you prefer giving or receiving presents?
3. The best time of your life 20s, 30s, 40s .... or do you think the best is yet to come?
4. If you had an afternoon to yourself and not a care in the world, how would you spend it?
5. Have you ever broken a bone in your body?
6. Did you have an imaginary friend when you were little?
7.What is your favourite quotation?
8. What are the three most important things in your life.
9. Least favourite day of the week?
10. If you could have a famous person follow your blog who would it be?
11. What everyday article would you most miss if it were suddenly unavailable?

I have decided like Anne just to tag one person. Val of DottyCookie - it has to be you!

The reason I've chosen Val is that we actually met in real life last week. It is the first time I've met another blogger and {close your eyes Val} I approached the morning thinking  .... well ... I needed to go into town anyway and I could always get away early and go shopping. Well that didn't happen! Needless to say we ran out of time chatting away and have plans to meet up again, probably when I get stuck on the dress I'm going to make and need her help or when Val needs to visit the new shop I introduced her to.


  1. Oh, you wicked woman! well, since no one seems to read my blog nowadays I might as well have a go, but I warn you now, I WILL cheat.

    I had a really good time last Friday too, and am relieved to hear you didn't find me to be too odd ;-) Mr DC says your eggs were perfect - he poached them all over the weekend and I didn't get a single one, even on Mothers Day!

    And you mean you haven't started sewing yet? I do need to get a very good look at that book you bought before I go and order it myself ...

  2. You didn't cheat; I knew you'd do it properly or not at all. I like the way you slipped in about driving a tractor into a house - it sounds so trifling but I can still picture that tractor rammed into the house, seemingly supporting the first floor.
