eleven

The lovely Ada from Vintage Sheet Addict tagged me a few days ago.  I am to answer her eleven questions and then I will cheat the rules a little bit.

Here are my answers to Ada's questions.
  
What's on your bedside table  My bedside table is in danger of collapse with the weight of books and magazines balancing on it.  I devour reading material of all descriptions.  New books are one of my favourite things.

What's on top of your wardrobe  A box containing my wedding dress.

Happiest memories  Our wedding day and the arrival of our little ones.  We celebrated our eighth wedding anniversary on Tuesday and our second little boy's birthday on Sunday so October is a special month for us.



Favourite toy as a child  A Speak and Spell electronic game and my Tiny Tears doll.  I still have both although Tiny Tears is in need of some new clothes.

Your perfect holiday destination  Canada, we spent our honeymoon there and we are always dreaming of returning one day.


Spring or autumn  Autumn is my favourite season, although spring comes a close second.

What's your motto, number one rule, you live your life by  Live well, laugh often and love much.

If you had a time machine, what year would you like to land in  Any year in the 1950's.  I love the style and design from this era and would love to travel there.



Roast dinner or fish and chips  A roast dinner most definitely, probably chicken or lamb with lovely gravy and a huge selection of vegetables. Delicious.

What makes you 'belly laugh'  Most often my family.  Mr F, the wee ones and my two very funny brothers. Once I start laughing I find it very difficult to stop. It's always the silliest things start me off.


Favourite outfit, past or present  I have a couple of black dresses.  They are my go-to outfits for nights out and special occasions.  They are so easy.  I don't really enjoy the planning an outfit process.  I love to get ready and go with minimum fuss.

Now, the rules of this tag state that, each tagged person must post eleven random facts about themselves, answer the eleven questions set by previous blogger, create eleven more questions and tag eleven more blogs, with less than two hundred followers.

Due to my current brain fog and time constraints I have simply answered Ada's questions.  I cannot get my brain in gear to come up with eleven random facts or eleven new questions.  Please accept my apologies.

What I will do though, is mention eleven lovely blogs that don't seem to have been tagged yet.  I hate that I can't include all the wonderful blogs I read. This is a great way to find some lovely new blogs though.


If you would like to take part could you please answer Ada's questions as it would be great to find out some more about all you lovelies but I won't be in the least offended if you don't want to take part ... xx

The photos were all taken by me on our honeymoon in Canada.

  7. Dear Bee,

    This was such a lovely post! I too have kept my Tiny Tears and Angélique, my two year old daughter, plays with her so much and each time I am jolted back to my childhood as if it were yesterday.

    October is a special month for you, isn't it?

  8. Hi Bee,
    Thanks for tagging me..this sounds like fun, I will try and post my answers when I get a chance (may be a little while depending).

    It's great to find out more about you though :) Where in Canada did you travel to? Where would you like to go if you went again? I was born and raised in Canada..spent my childhood in Alberta and Teen/early adult years in British Columbia (before moving to the UK).

    I had forgotten all about the 'speak and spell', I had one of those as well. My Mom most likely still has it somewhere packed up.

    Have a lovely weekend x
