Twenty Questions

I've been tagged, by both Mud in the City and Nunhead Mum of One, to answer some questions. To be honest, I've spent the whole afternoon filling out incredibly tedious visa forms, and my brain feels as if itmight explode. If I have to answer one more thing about whether Littleboy 2 is married, Littleboy 1's previous work experience, or find out the phone number of a company I worked for 10 years ago and no longer exists, I think my brain WILL explode. So it's a relief to be able to answer some more light-hearted goes.

1. What are your current obsessions?
MOVING (in case you haven't heard).

2. Which item from your wardrobe do you wear most often?
My new-ish Uniqlo jeans. My old Gap jeans. My skinny jeans with the broken get the picture.

3. What's for dinner?
Prawn curry with tamarind sauce. Made earlier when I was supposed to be helping The Doctor with visa forms.

4. Last thing you bought?
A huge Waitrose shop this morning. How dull is that?

5. What are you listening to?
Take That - Rule the world - on Spotify. Littleboys 1 and 2 'dancing' to it.

6. Favourite kids' film?
Chicken Run

7. Favourite holiday spots?
Italy; Southeast Asia; Anglesey

8. What are you reading right now?
Trying to finish weekend papers. Have just finished The Outcast by Sadie Jones, which was fab.

9. Four words to describe yourself?
Curious ; irreverent; anxious; loyal

10. Guilty pleasure?

11. Who or what can make you laugh until you're weak?
South Park

12. First spring thing?
The pink camellia in the garden, looking fantastic this year

13. Planning to travel to next?
The US of A.....if the visa people say yes

14. Best thing you ate and drank recently?
Rare roast Cumbrian beef at the wedding I've just been to; excellent wine at same

15. When did you last get tipsy?
See above

16. Favourite ever film?
The English Patient

17. Care to share some wisdom?
Everything that happens with children is 'a phase'

18. What new blogs are you reading?
My friend Mum of 4's brilliant new blog, Four Down Mum to Go. It's the story of her life with four boys under six, having just had twins. Painfully honest and very funny.

A Modern Mother said...

You can wear skinny jeans?! I'm soooooo jealous.

Expat mum said...

Gawd those end instructions are a bit complicated but I'll have a go. I was out of ideas anyway! Thanks.

Paradise Lost In Translation said...

Skinny jeans....I'm so NOTwith it. It seems too recent that they were in last time around.......
Right, been away, sorry but will get my brain in gear. Questions are easier than original post ideas....

Wife in Hong Kong said...

Easier than the last time you tagged me I will admit! And this time I did it straight away so it didn't feel so much like homework! Which only means I'm putting off all those other things I'd rather not be doing....
We have the same favourite film.

A Modern Mother - the broken zip is the key to that one...

Expat Mum - don't worry about the instructions, I'm sure I got them wrong anyway...

Paradise Lost - mine probably date from the last time around....!

Wife in HK - great minds think alike. And I also did it instead of doing the things I should be's a bit like hoovering the carpets when you should be revising.
