Tagging and TMI

By | April 29, 2014

Karen tagged me in here
and I thought I’d share my answers and forward the tagging love on
(because I can be a bit nosey like that).

Here goes… Questions
originally set by Tracey at mummyshambles.wordpress.com.

1. What are you wearing?

Linen trousers, black vest top, white
jumper which has a tendency to drop off one-shoulder (very 80’s),
glittery grey FitFlops and a long flower necklace.


This may change as we’ve just had thunder, lightening
and torrential rain!! Typical British Spring weather?!

2. Ever been in love?

Yes, absolutely.

3. Ever had a terrible break-up?

Break-up from C’s dad was horrible was horrible but not unexpected. The
fall-out was much worse than actual event.

4. How tall are you?

5ft 7 inches

5. How much do you weigh?

TMI! That is between me and my
scales (sorry). Less than this time last year but more than I should.

6. Any tattoos?

Yes, want to see pictures?
Three on my wrists:




Four little ones on my back, three at the top and a little happy dragonfly on my lower back:


They all have their own little meanings, I would like an autism-related one and a peacock one but dithering about them.

7. Any piercings?

Belly button, two in one ear and three in the other. Always wanted a little nose stud but never got round to it.



8. OTP?

I had to google what this abbreviation was (!) and as he reads my blog avidly, I’d better say Mr Bluecrisps aka Hubbie.

9. Favourite show?

Revenge on E4, Doctors and Once Upon A Time.

10. Favourite bands?

I have a right mixture on my phone of
80’s onwards. Like something I can sing along to.

11. Something you miss?

My maternal grandparents, they taught me so much. My mother in law passed away suddenly four months ago and she was the lynchpin of Hubbie’s family, very much missed.

12. Favourite song?

When we married in Jersey 12 years ago, the acoustic version of Midge Ure’s “(You) Move Me” was one of our
songs, it’s just lovely.

13. How old are you?

Another TMI!!! I have a big birthday coming up in three years and that’s all I’m saying!

14. Zodiac sign?

Aries and I’m as stubborn as people under this sign are meant to be… Partly how Hubbie and I met.

15. Quality you look for in a partner?

Humour and cuddles. Both achieved, we laugh together every day.

16. Favourite quote?

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s learning to dance in the rain.” Very appropriate for us.

17. Favourite actor?

Don’t think I have one.

18. Favourite colour?

If I didn’t say Purple, I’d be fooling myself!

19. Loud or soft music?

Depends on how I’m feeling. Get up and at ’em music whilst I’m
walking to school.

20. Where do you go when you are sad?

Inwardly, literally. I retreat into myself too much and don’t always let my
feelings show.

21. How long does it take you to shower?

I’m a “bath” girl and Hubbie would say “too long”!

22. How long does it take you to get ready in the mornings?

Not long but always make sure I have “my face” on.

23. Ever been in a physical fight?

There were scuffles in secondary school but nothing too major. Only bones broken has been a collarbone in primary school, I ran into a
telephone on a wall.

24. Turn on?

Nice accent, kindness.

25. Turn off?

Big heads and bigots.

26. The reason I started blogging?

I went from someone who didn’t keep a diary to someone who wanted to
help get autism awareness and acceptance out there.

27. Fear?

Heights and for the future for my children.

28. Last thing that made you cry?

Frustration at a situation.

29. Last time you said you loved someone?

Today on the phone to Hubbie.

30. Meaning behind your blog name?

It was originally called Bluecrisps but changed to AutismMumma as I am “Mumma” to D.
