Awhile ago, while in a little blogging rut, I told you all that you could ask me anything. Most questions were interesting, some were just people fishing for my bank account details. I have included them all (except the bank account ones, obviously…) here:
How many kids do you want, and is everything going well?
In my imagination, five kids sounds awesome. The reality of no sleep, a million nappies and countless tantrums per child will most likely bring that number down. Depending on how I go with pregnancy and conceiving, 2-3 kids will probably end up being our limit. However, I’m still awaiting my pre-conception obstetrician appointment but I’ll keep everyone posted.
Can we see a photo of the Swiss Wedding Extravaganza?
No. I desperately want to show you the most awkward wedding photo (there is a shot with them posing in the snow with the mountains in the background – it would be lovely but Sis-in-law has a look on her face that I think was supposed to be smouldering and sexy, but just makes her look constipated. Bro-in-law looks like a deer caught in the headlights. Poor bugger.)
What’s your real name?
Take a guess.
Why did you start blogging?
I needed a safe place to vent where I can be my usual direct, abrupt, opinionated self and not get told that I’m a hateful, horrible person. Or get interrupted. I hate getting interrupted.
What’s your favourite sexual position?
Whoever you are, please don’t come back to my blog.
What’s the best surprise you’ve ever gotten?
My favourite book is by a little-known American author. I’d been borrowing a copy from the library every time I wanted to read it because I’d not been able to track down a copy in any bookstore. One Christmas (I think it was 2006) Husband gave me my own copy – it had taken him 6 months of searching, but he finally managed to order it directly from the publisher. It’s one of my most beloved possessions.
Does pineapple belong on a pizza?
Hell no! Pizza is a savoury food – there is no place for sweet stuff on pizza. Don’t even get me started on dessert pizza! *vomits a little bit*By the way, I have a complicated set of food rules – one day I shall bore you with them.
Have you already got names picked out for your kids?
Sort of. Husband and I know what we’d name a boy but no idea when it comes to naming a girl. Needless to say, they will be normal names. None of this Abcde or Na-a or Jissycka. Normal names and normal spelling.
What’s your favourite chocolate?
Cadbury Dairy Milk.
Have you always lived in Perth?
No. I was born here but the family moved to Brisbane for about 16 months when I was a toddler. I don’t remember it. My mother remembers how large the insects were……
If anyone has any more questions, then feel free to ask them in the comments. I shall answer them. (Unless they’re crossing the line into TMI.)
