11 Things….

I have been nominated by the lovely blogger Lynne over at New Mummy Blog.  If you have not been to her blog yet, I recommend you go and pay a visit as there are loads of wonderful posts in there as she reflects and mused about being a new mummy.  One of my favourites in her blog which is so hilarious and yet so true is her blog post entitled “5 Reasons a Newborn Baby will make you Late”

First and foremost, I would like to extend my Massive Thanks to her for this 11 THINGS nomination…

DSC01165So, here are the 11 QUESTIONS that Lynne had set for me to answer:

 1.   What is your favourite homemade dinner?

Anything slow cooked, whether it’s pork, chicken, lamb or beef.  Every time I cooked the meat that way, it always comes out tender, juicy and moist… truly divine!

2.   What is your favourite take-away?

Dominoes Pizza.  They make scrumptious pizzas, especially the Meaty ones with BBQ sauce on top.  I’m drooling now!

3.   Why did you start your blog?

I have always wanted to document our story since I met my husband through scrap booking.  However, it took me 9 years before I finally started one and this is now through blogging.  It’s never too late to start one, isn’t it?

4.   What was your favourite subject at school?

Math! I love Math… I always got big grades in Math when I was in school.  There’s something in these numbers that I find rather interesting.

5.   If you could go on holiday tomorrow where would you go?

I would love to step foot on those Carribean Islands.  Especially with the breeze of Autumn and Winter coming, I would really like to go to somewhere sunny with clear blue skies and on a white sandy beach.

6.   If you were stranded on a desert island what 5 things would you take with you? (Assuming all the people you want are there too)

Food, Water, Clothes,Tent and most importantly my Mobile Phone.  It’s always handy to have something as a means of communication to ask for help, if it still has a battery of course.

7.   What is your favourite flower?

Pink Lilies.  I became infatuated with it because the first flower bouquet that my husband gave me was full of pink lilies in it.  That’s why on our big day, I have chosen pink lilies as my wedding bouquet too as it’s apparently have more meaning and significance to me than any other flowers.

8.   Do you have a phobia?

I have a deep-seated aversion for newborn animals.  It seems inexplicable why I feel terrified to touch them.  I know it’s strange and so weird as these baby animals look so cute.

9.   What is your favourite book?

I used to like reading fiction books during my school years, but now having a family, I just don’t have any time to read a book.  Juggling with work and family in itself plus blogging had already taken over my entire schedule.  Nevertheless, I’m more into reading blogs now, I find it so interesting and discovering new bloggers too.

10.   Which childrens tv programme do you dislike the most?

In all fairness, I do like Cbeebies programs so as my kids and I’m so thankful for having this children programs in television as it kept my kids get occupied with educational stuff.  However, there’s one show there that I’m not too keen on, its Gigglebiz.  Don’t get me wrong, I like Justin Fletcher in other shows but not on this one.

11.   What is your favourite clothes shop?

When I go for clothes shopping, I always end up at Dorothy Perkins because their clothes are not as expensive as other shops and they fit well on me too.  Best of all, they always have sales almost everyday which I love the most.

  • Thank you for your lovely lovely comments, they really mean so much! I love your answers, I love Dorothy Perkins too, they do always have brilliant offers and I also love your answers about school and books. I’m the same, in asking the question I hoped to find the solution as to how to be a mummy, a blogger and read a book. But, you’re in the same position as me, I do love reading lots of blogs though!

      You’re welcome and I have enjoyed reading your answers too! I have the same worry as well in case my nominees wont take part, but most of them have which I’m thankful of.

  • Great list & answers there. I have say I am surprised that you like Dominoes Pizza as your favourite take away. For me any excuse for a Thai meal! 😉 I love Math at school too, though now I am pretty rubbish at it as I have not been using them for a looong time… x

    • ReimerandRuby

      I love Thai food too… however, if we order Thai food in a chinese takeaway, it doesn’t taste as good as when you have it in a Thai Restaurant, we’ve tried it a couple of times when we crave for Thai food and we just got disappointed.

  • I love Dorothy Perkins too. Very reasonable price. Love this 11 things. It is very fun way to know the blogger.
