I’ve got some questions I want you to know

sunset behind tree

I’ve been tagged for some fun blogger questions recently by Lisa from The Brunette Diaries (thanks!)so I'll crack on...

1) Have you already broken a new years resolution?
Yes, I vowed to get more sleep and I've failed! I got to bed early enough one maybe three nights so far this year. Averaging around 6 hours sleep is bad.
2) Did you celebrate on new years eve?
Yes, in my onesie in front of the tv. Par-tay!
3) Do you worry about what the New Year will bring?
I would worry if I thought about it so I'm not thinking about it.
4) Are you booking a holiday sometime soon and where to?
I'm due to make some holiday plans but I always put it off as I hate figuring these things out.
5) Was 2013 a good/bad year for you?
I'm going to say GOOD! It was good.
6) If you could buy one thing now with £20.00 what would it be?
A 10k race entry
7) If you could buy one thing now for £500.00 what would it be?
An old banger of a convertible for summer. I nearly did 2 years ago but the insurance quote was ridiculous.
8) What month is your birthday?
Oh, nice try. PASS!
9) Have you ever been to Devon/Cornwall?
I haven't. It's a heck of a distance from Norfolk. I would like to visit one day.
10) Have you got a best friend and why are they your best friend?
My husband is my best friend. I never understand why some people don't quote their partner as their best friend.
11) Do you like your job?
We don't talk about work on here.

What was the first blog you ever came across?
It was Laura's blog A Daisy chain Dream and it was through the people that left comments on the post I read that I discovered everyone else.

Best blogging friend?
I have two blogging besties; Alice who I write to and met up with on the bloggers holiday and Hazel who luckily lives not all that far away, hurrah!

Name a blog that enables your purchases.
That's a toughie as I virtually never say 'I want what so-and-so has got' but Char of T*Rexes and Tiaras probably makes me feel like my spending is under control! Pretty sure Char has around 10x more clothes and 200x more shoes than me.

Five blogs everyone should be reading?
Nu-uh! Read whatever you fancy and not what anyone tells you to read.

What is your favourite way to read blogs?
I like the ease of flicking through the Bloglovin' app but it is rubbish for attempting to comment plus it's so stripped down you get no sense of blog design.
 

Favourite blogs/ Bloggers that inspire you?
I have quite a few! I'm not going to be able to get them all down here but here's my attempt:
Belledubrighton
An Alien World
World of Joy
Kezzie AG
CarlyRowena
Lucy in the Clouds
T*Rexes and Tiaras
The Brunette Diaries
The Villa on Mount Pleasant
Frills n Spills
Odd Socks and Pretty Frocks
A Daisy Chain Dream
Sailboat
Sunny sweet pea
Just me


Favourite blog design/look?
MINE! Muhahahaha, that's probably cheating but hey.


What is your favourite thing about blogging?
Do I need a favourite? No. Everything is awesome except how much I now want to keep spending on clothes as well as the amount of sleep I lose because I'm staying up late editing pictures/replying to comments/drafting posts
Name a blogger you would most like to see write a book?
Kezzie is full of stories so I think she would write an excellent book.

Hazel chose these questions as part of another tag so I'm answering these as well while I'm on a roll

1. If you were a cartoon character who would you be?
Dogtanian. Probably spelt wrong too.

2. What's your nickname?
Soph. Genius people!

3. What are you reading at the moment?
Blogs and a book called The Buried Circle by Jenni Mills. It's so long and is dragging.

4. If you could take a year off work with limitless funds, how would you spend your year?
Asleep most probably. For a week. Then probably in training for the heptathlon or boxing or 10k racing.

5. What is your signature dish?
Lasagne. How basic!

6. What is the one thing that everyone should do, at least once, in their lifetime?
Sex! Crude maybe but everyone was thinking it.

7. Have you ever given blood?
No. I used to use the excuse that I was under the weight minimum but then that became no longer valid. My Mum became anaemic as a direct result of years of giving blood so that's put me off too.

8. Do you have any tattoos?
Not yet but I hope to at some point, although as my brother advised - my parents would kill me even though I'm well on the way to 30. Hrumph.

9. Name a film that you have watched over and over again?
Harry Potter series. Never gets old!

10. What question would you most like to ask me?
Can we go charity shopping again in the spring?

11. Do you have a favourite piece of jewellery? What is it, how did it come to be yours?
Yes, several pieces my Grandma passed on to me (before dementia took hold, she's not dead)

Tag yourselves, you're all it. Play along and have some fun!

Sophie

  2. If I had £20 pound I would probably buy a huge bag of sweets, that makes me feel a tad guilty since you would buy entry into a 10K race, unless it's a race to eat 10 KitKats?

  4. I think Laura's blog was one of the first I remember reading too and that now feels like so long ago!

  5. Yay! Thanks for answering my questions! And yes! we can go shopping soon - as soon as my spending ban is over. Where shall we go this time?

    I think Laura's blog was one of the first I found too, no matter how popular her blog becomes she always remains the same and takes the time to comment on other blogs. Huge love for Laura!

    You're my best blogging pal too x

    1. I agree with that about Laura. She's got stacks of followers but she always takes time every couple of weeks or so to come and say hi. Most of the other post-1000 blogs now that I read, that used to comment on my blog, rarely do!x

      And thanks Sophie, that's such a sweet thing to say! Considering I am such a verbose waffler!x

  10. SO i'm having a MAHOOSIVE blog catch up (I am about to give up and mark some of the newer posts in my reader as read even though they're not) but I am glad I found this! Thanks for the mention. And yes I reckon that's how you'd spell dogtanian! Get a tattoo somewhere your parents won't see... then when they do see it you can say it's been there for years! I got a new one on Tuesday and am already dreading my mum noticing it! haha

I love to hear your thoughts and I always like to return the favour. Thanks for dropping by x
