So here I am, in a hotel room near Manchester awaiting the start of Blog On MSI conference. This is my third time but still don’t know everyone, so if you are coming along, please do say Hi. As an Ice Breaker the lovely people at Blog On have asked us to share answers to the following questions:
Share a recent picture of you
I was recently given the great honour to head along to the Cavern Club in Liverpool. As with many Mum’s and fellow bloggers I don’t have many pictures of myself. I need to change this!
Describe yourself in three words
Enthusiastic, hyper and smiley
How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
I started blogging on 27th May 2011. I was working on a project to get Mums to include more fish in their children’s diets and I met some amazing bloggers including my roomie here this year Susan K Mann
What was the inspiration behind your blog name?
I wanted it to be relevant to what I planned to blog about which was my journey as a Mum. My son at the time used to shout at me ‘mummy’s knee’ as he wanted to sit in my knee.
What is the best thing to come from your blog so far?
Definitely the other bloggers I have met either in person or on social media.
Your most remembered thing from your childhood
Going to my Dad’s work. He owned a chemist shop in Edinburgh. I spent a lot of time there.
Something interesting you might not know about me is . . .
Goodness I don’t know! I ran a marathon in 2004 just cause a friend challenged me and said she would raise money for the charity I was working for too. It was hard work, those January mornings along the shore in Edinburgh is driving sleet & snow. I’d never run more than 5km before!
Which social media platform best describes your personality and why?
Twitter, it’s quick, fast moving and lots of random facts/information
What is your happy song?
I love don’t Stop me now by Queen. It was helped me through a lot of tough times when I’ve needed motivation
What is your favourite alcoholic drink
Prosecco- but I’ll give most a go!
What is your favourite cake?
I love baking it not eating it so much. My friend recently told me about Nigella Lawson’s Guinness Cake. OMG, it is amazing.
What is your favourite takeaway dish?
I love a dominos pizza
Where is your dream holiday destination and why?
We used to have a house in Florida, just 10 mins from Disney and that is probably one of my favourite places to go. It reminds me of my Dad but also it’s just such a brilliant holiday.
What would your superhero name be?
If you had a magical power, would you want to have and why?
Teleportation – I am always busy and find travelling can be frustrating. Imagine how much more you could get done!
What one weapon would help you survive a zombie apocalypse?
A bomb shelter, it isn’t a weapon but zombies freak me out. I’d just want to hide.
If you could send something into space, what would it be?
Bullies, if there is one thing I cannot stand is bullying or bullying behaviours.
What would you have on your gravestone?
I don’t want a gravestone!
You make headline news around the world in 2 years time… but for what reason?
I have no idea, my goals are not really newsworthy. Finding the next big thing in terms of social media. At the moment my eldest is really into YouTube but is this the best platform for a 7 year old?!
If an EMP wiped out all mechanical forms of transport, how would you get to BlogOn?
I’d walk, I need the steps 🙄
