Thank you to Sand In My Toes for honouring my blog with a Liebster award! I’m cheating rather by only answering the questions, but as I’ve been home alone this weekend with a sick child, I’m hoping this won’t disqualify me. So, without much further ado:
What was the most spiritual moment of your life?
My second cesarean, losing two litres of blood (a coca cola family bottle!), literally seeing stars, the student nurse nearly fainting and the room suddenly filling with medical staff in an ER-style scene.
What remains your most outrageous buy?
A nicer car than we’d ever be able to afford back home.
What do you do when the kids are napping?
They never nap.
What would your dream vacation be?
What film makes you cry the most?
Titanic – even though we’ve watched it at least 10 times recently due to my sons having an obsession with maritime disasters.
How do you handle the stress that comes with being a parent?
For me, writing is a sanity saver.
What moment do you most look forward to with your child, every day?
Does anyone admit to the moment they fall asleep? When you smell their peachy heads and they suddenly look so adorable and peaceful. But there are also many other moments that balance out the craziness of our days – the best one being when they say, “It’s a good job I’ve got this mum.”
How do you indulge in some ‘me’ time?
I love re-designing the house, reading, going to work with DH, and, very rarely, painting.
Do you like to cook? What’s your signature dish?
I’m an amateur cook, but getting better. Shepherd’s pie is my signature dish.
What is your happiest childhood memory?
Holidays in North Wales, at Pencaenewydd Farm.
Is there something you secretly wish for every day?
That a giant Tesco would open in Arabian Ranches. With online grocery shopping.
