Kate over at Fox's Lane has just answered eight questions we had for her. Now I am going to have a turn as well. I don't usually talk about myself much, let alone show photos of myself. So here goes!
Favourite meal to eat? Easy! I have always loved a roast dinner, lamb with mint jelly if given the choice, with peas, carrots, kumera, pumpkin and gravy. I'll have the potatoes too if necessary, but can easily go without them. My lunchtime treat would be chicken sushi.
Do you have a quirky eccentricity? Well apparently my whole face moves around when I eat, especially my nose. Gosh that's so rude hubby! He also says the whole place could be coming down around my ears and I'd still be concentrating on my current project. That could be a good thing, it means I have good focus, right?
My middle name is Frances. I do not like it at all. I tried to give my girls middle names that they would be proud of. They are Jessica, Rose, Amelia and Eliza. So far they love them. I'm hoping Sophie Eliza likes hers! I wanted her to be named Greta but hubby wouldn't have a bar of it.
I am passionate about my girls having a childhood like we had. Doing normal things children seem to do less of these days. Playing together, playing board games, outdoor games, reading, riding bikes, drawing, having fun. Not playing on the computer, watching too much TV, or homework.
Thongs or Birkenstocks? Thongs are knickers over in NZ so we'll call them jandals right away! And I have no idea what Birkenstocks are. I wear proper shoes all year round. Jandals around the house and for hanging out the washing. I hate shoe shopping and only have one or two pairs of shoes on the go at any time.
Who was I before I had kids? I was a traveller and someone who always wanted to get married and have babies. I've done all that and have really enjoyed myself. I took myself off to London when I was is my early 20's and worked for a year as a live-in nanny. I spent my weekends travelling around England and several other countries on my own and have many wonderful memories of my time there.
Have I ever been arrested? Heck no! That's so not me. Boring to some but just the way I am. I hate the thought of ever loosing my freedom.
This weekend I have spent a great deal of time crocheting my Grannies. I've done so many of them too. I'm very pleased with my progress as I've been very slack lately with them. My first love is sewing but I've learned to love crochet too.
So who else wants to join in and have a go? It's good for us to share about ourselves and not just our crafts. Let me know if you are going to join in the comments section.
Now that my apron swap is sort of over, although my apron hasn't quite arrived here yet, I've decided that next weekend we should have a show and tell. All you have to do is put my apron button at the top of your post, or a photo of you apron if you struggle with buttons. And then pop a photo or two of the apron you made and the one you have received. It should be a lot of fun to see them all at the same time. Any day next weekend will do as we are all in different time zones.
Hope you are all enjoying a great week! Catch you later on.
