Tagged.... Q&A

I just got tagged by one of my bloggy buddies Tara who got tagged by the very lovely Kerry Jean Lister - you get the picture....

Kerry poached these celeb / politician / author Q and A's from The Guardian Weekend mag because she says the answers have the power to reveal the real you whilst helping her to decide if she'd like to go for a pint with you or tell you where to go.
Lets see how I get on...

Which living person do you most admire, and why?
My husband Yan for having the bottle to follow his dream and not giving up.

When were you happiest?
Thailand 2000.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
Too many to mention but being carried out of a 7 year old's roller skating party on a stretcher has to rank pretty high.

Aside from property, what's the most expensive thing you've bought?
A Franck Muller watch for Yan's 40th birthday.

What is your most treasured possession?
My life.

Where would you like to live?
I 'm happy where I am now but Phuket, New York, Hong Kong.

What's your favourite smell?
Washing powder.

Who would play you in the film of your life?
Milla Jovovich, Yan says she looks like me... I wish I looked like her!

What is your favourite book?
Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristoff.

What is your most unappealing habit?

What would be your fancy dress costume of choice?
I don't do fancy dress.....

What is your earliest memory?
Watching Pebble Mill at 1 with my mum after playgroup when I was about 3.

What is your guiltiest pleasure?
Currently Zuma Blitz. I blame my husband, he has me addicted.

What do you owe your parents?
The ability to stand on my own two feet.

To whom would you like to say sorry, and why?
To my No1 son, for nearly leaving him without a mum.

What or who is the greatest love of your life?
My husband. He saved me.

What does love feel like?
Warm, tingly, exciting, scary, bright and brilliant.

What was the best kiss of your life?
The first time I kissed Yan... he was never going to make the first move and so I had to pounce on him!

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
Just a minute... I seriously say that way too many times in one day and 'STOP FIGHTING!".

What is the worst job you have ever done?
Waiting tables in Swiss Cottage, leicester. I lied about my age to get a Saturday job when I was nearly 13 and i hated every second of it. I looked hot in the chalet girl uniform though... or so I was told!

If you could edit your past, what would you change?
The fact that I took a wrong turn on the way home from Cornwall, got stuck in the worst traffic jam ever and ended up missing the Morrissey gig. I'm still pissed off about that!

What is the closest you have come to death?

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Proving the doctors wrong and learning to walk again.

Last week. I don't need a reason - I like a good cry. Clears the air!

How do you relax?
By someone removing all apple devices from my person.

What single thing would improve the quality of your life?
More kittens.

What is the most important lesson life has taught you?
You are the maker of your own destiny.

So, that's me.... who fancies a pint?


  1. Wow - amazing answers.

    Life has a funny way of turning out alright doesnt it?

    I think we're due a pint =)


  2. Fabulous answers. I love the line about how you relax!

    Thanks for the tag. I'll do this over the weekend. There's at least one of my answers that may surprise you. Something we have in common that you didn't know about. It won't be blindingly ovbious though. We can chat over that pint you're offering.

    On second thoughts. Are you absolutely sure you want me to drink a whole pint? ;)

  3. Amazing answer, I also read your Post Natal Depression post too and found myself in tears. I've suffered with depression for years and after giving birth I was fine but few months in I was deep into my depression again and wanted to run away from it all. I feel bit better now but not 100%, I'm surely I'll get there :)

  4. Mrs Lister, you are on!
    Scribble, looking forwards to reading yours.
    Helen, hang in there.

  5. Love the Guardian Q&A so thrilled to read various bloggers answers - I remember Pebble Mill at 1!
    So true about destiny


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. Appreciated as always. xx
