My Answers

1. Who inspires you the most and why?

Bro I dunno. I am notoriously terrible with these questions. This is because I think everyone lives their own lives and I find it impossible to compare. Having said that, I find I feel most inspired by peoples actions rather than the end result. Anyone can be be a source of inspiration for me, even a stranger. I look up to actions and intentions, this can include someones bravery (even doing something new and scary), kindness, perseverance, intellect and the list goes on! I am inspired by characteristics I see in people that I admire, feel I lack or could be improved upon.

But really, I only look to myself and do what is right for me (and my husband, because my decisions affect him). I guess I look for inspiration within myself.*

*I just made myself feel weird at the cringeyness of that statement.

2. Why did you start blogging? 

Blogging is something that I thought about for a long time but never really got a around to doing it (or had the confidence to do so).

But one day I thought, meh I’m not going to live forever, so JUST DO IT.

Since I began writing on here I have found it to be very therapeutic and it just makes me happy. What more could someone ask for? 🙂

3. If you were an animal what would you be and why? 

To be honest, I was stuck on this question a lot so I ended up doing a couple what animal are you quizzes on the Internet. I got multiple different results, such as a cat, rooster and chameleon.

Humans are technically part of the animal kingdom. So can I pick human?

That feels like cheating so let’s go with a different animal. Let’s go with…the chameleon! Why? I adapt to my environment.

4. What did you have for tea last night? Talk me through the decision-making process.

Yesterday we attended a friend’s wedding. For dinner there was a BBQ buffet style dinner. There were a couple options, the two I considered were the sausage hot dog in a bun and a burger.

I decided to go for the sausage hot dog and I drowned it in ketchup. Because Ketchup is LIFE.

5. Do you work-out? Talk me through your regime.


Me? This couch potato? I should be crying instead of laughing. BUT, I do my best because health (I guess). I try my best to go to the gym 1-2 times a week.

A gym class I try to attend weekly is power step. It’s quite intensive and it’s not too late in the evening so perfect for after work. Essentially, we step up/down, jump over a step, squats and anything to do with legs (and some burpees) for 45 minutes. It’s exhausting but it feels so good.

I also try to go to the regular gym for my second work-out attendance. I don’t really have a regime, I just use whatever. Which is limited to what gym equipment is available and my knowledge of how to use them. This includes, the bikes, cross-trainer, leg press, leg push-outy-inny thing, abdominal crunches machine, arm pully thing, and arm pushy thing. Followed by stretching on a mat.

As you can probably tell, I don’t really know the names of a lot of the gym equipment. Now,  I don’t use all of those equipment each time, I just do whatever I feel like doing that day.

One day, I do hope to try the weights, but it’s really intimidating!

6. What time is your alarm set on work days?

6.45 am!

7. What is your favourite sweet treat?


8. Describe your perfect Saturday.

Relaxing at home with my husband (because of his job, we don’t always get to spend a lot of time together during the week).

Sleeping in, cooking breakfast and generally having the day open to do whatever we want!

9. Who is your ‘person’? For non Grey’s Anatomy fans that means who is your best friend? Tell me about them.

My husband is my best friend. Is this sweet or sad? But, I will say that it’s really nice living with someone who is both your partner and best friend :).

10. What did you want to be when you grew up?                                                             

I wanted to be a vet. I loved animals so much as a child.                                              Why did I not pursue this? I discovered that I was afraid of other people’s pets.

11. What is your favourite item of clothing and why?

I don’t really have a favourite item of clothing, I like multiple items. But the only item of clothing that I am emotionally attached to, is my great Grandfather’s red scarf.

Here it is!

    Thank you so much for nominating me, I enjoy reading your blog posts 🙂
    I find writing therapeutic too, and I wanted to be a vet when I was younger as well, but then I realised that I’d be scared to have to do any surgical procedures.
    Here are some of my answers:
    1) I have too many socks haha, but I like all my cat ones!
    2) A light lilac colour like a fairy
    3) What I’d normally wear out, but with comfortable bottoms
    4) 2 cats
    5) Vegetable noodles
    6) Ears
    7) No, but I’m intrigued at the idea and what the sensation would be like
    8) no, but I went through a phase where I did want to
    9) scrubbing bathroom stains
    10) Italian, I just love the language and culture. Would be amazing to go there some day
    11) Bananas!

    1. Thank you for your kind words and for participating! I love your blog posts too :). Oohhhh a light lilac hair would be so pretty. I know what you mean about the socks, I have an entire box full of them (but still feel the need to buy more l).

      Its so funny how we both wanted to be vets, I wonder how many other children out there wanted this too!

      You should definitely go to Italy one day, it’s such a nice way to visit. And the food! It’s amazing 😀

    I may be posting this twice…

    I love your descriptions of the gym equipment!

    I’m playing too, here are my answers to your questions:

    1. Do you have a favourite pair or pairs of socks. If so, which ones?
    For Christmas my nephew got my ‘world’s best aunt’ socks. It has to be those.

    2. If humans naturally had colourful hair like in cartoons and anime, what colour hair would you choose?
    Purple, for sure.
    3. If you don’t leave the house, what do you wear all day?
    Pyjamas. I don’t get dressed unless I’m going somewhere. Same when I get home, immediately back in to my pjs.
    4. Do you have any pets?
    No and this saddens me greatly.
    5. What’s your favourite home cooked dish?
    Macaroni cheese.
    6. Do you have piercings? If so, what ones?
    Yes, two in each lobe, a cartilage piercing on my right ear (not sure what’s it’s called anymore, and my nose.
    7. Have you ever gone skydiving?
    Not for all the money in the world.
    8. Do you have any tattoos?
    Three. In need of a fourth… 😜
    9. What is your least favourite chore?
    Hoovering. I hate Hoovering. Always gives me a rash on my hand too!
    10. If you had the choice to learn any language fluently (including reading/writing), what would it be and why?
    Mmmm Greek? Only because I love Greece as a country.
    11. What is your favourite fruit?
    Oh, tough one. Love kiwi fruit. And pomegranate seeds. One of those, for sure.

    1. Love it! Bro, I’m the same with the pyjamas (I’m working from home tomorrow so you know what I’ll be wearing). It’s a good excuse to buy more pj’s. Agreed about the vacuum cleaning. I hate it too. It also reveals the spiders which causes me great anxiety. Oooh Greek! Have you visited recently??
      As for the pet, I think we should strongly advocate for an office cat. I would even mind a rat to cuddle.

    “Bro I dunno” me when someone asks me what’s going on. Congrats on the award. I am also not drawn to the idea of exercising. Too much work.
