Me Me Me and Me

I've been tagged for a Me Meme by SweetP Knits, ta thanks.

The rules:

1. Respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own.

2. Tag eight other people.

So here goes:

What is your current obsession?
Granny Squares.
All because of Posy Gets Cozy’s Cloister Blanket.

What is your weirdest obsession?

I love eating this crazy recipe of Amy's from Angry Chicken : Pecan + pretzel + chocolate = delicious!
You have to try it yourself, they really are very very delicious.

Very warm clothes, and hug boots.

What's for dinner?

Roast Chicken and loads of winter veg.

Spaghetti and cheese toasty, and a feijoa muffin.

A stretch and grow for my friend who is having baby number three soon.

What are you listening to right now?

Rehashing The Cure and a lot of other 80’s music.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?

Germany, the hubby went last year and I am still green that I didn’t get to go too.

Which language do you want to learn?


What do you love most about where you currently live?

Snuggling in my big bed with the kids, hubby and dog on a wet weekend morning.

Our new little veggie patch and the new kitchen floor!

Duck egg blue.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?

Sad I know but my old blue jeans.

What were you doing ten years ago?

I was in my final year of Teachers Collage, so exams.
And organizing our wedding.

Describe your personal style?

Disheveled stay at home Mum!

If you had £100 now, what would you spend it on?

That’s about $300 NZ, ooh so much yarn, or maybe diamond earrings?

What are you going to do after this?

Sitting down with the family for dinner.

What are your favourite films?

Atonement and Chocolat.

What inspires you?

Without sounding pathetic: my kids, nature, colour, other cleaver people.

You’re favourite books?

My little sister brought me the “Complete Tales & Pomes” of Edgar Allan Poe and I’m loving that.

Do you collect anything?


What makes you follow a blog?

Great photos, food, craftiness or knitting, anything that is a good read.

What was the most enjoyable thing you did today?

This morning I went to a “Stitch and Bitch” group with my little sister and little hoon.
We all had a wonderful time.
There were three other kids there, so while the ladies sipped tea, ate feijoa muffins and knitted the kids ran wild.

How to skateboard.
