BlogOn Xmas Jumper Linky

In just less than 2 weeks I will be going to my first blogging conference.  BlogOn Xmas. Over the years I’ve heard so much about BlogOn, and was so excited when I managed to get a ticket. They’re like hotcakes and sell out so so quickly.

I’ve got to say I’m pretty nervous about going. I’m actually quite a shy person when I’m put in new situations. A great way for other bloggers who are attending to get to know a bit more about me (and me about them) is to join in with the BlogOn Xmas Jumper Linky. So here goes!

  1. Please share your favourite photo of you.

    This photo was taken during the best man’s speech at our wedding.
  2. If you could choose a band to play in your garden for your birthday, who would you pick?
    Oooh, this is a hard one! I think I’d have to go with Matchbox Twenty though. I’ve only managed to see them live once, and they were amazing. They so rarely tour in the UK, and I would love to see them again.
  3. What do you take with you for long visits to the toilet?
    My phone. I check on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and then read blogs.
  4. What word can’t you spell?
    I like to think that I’m generally quite good at spelling. Not that you can always tell it, but I blame that on predictive text/swype! Turns out I really struggle spelling millennium, I always spell it with one n….and even managed to do so when I was at school and made a wall hanging that went on display, spelt incorrectly. Cringe!
  5. What’s the most unusual job you’ve ever had?
    Erm.. I wouldn’t say it was unusual, but it was definitely interesting – I used to work on a Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit. There was rarely a dull day there!
  6. Knitting, sewing or crochet?
    Knitting. I can do very basic knitting. It’s very therapeutic. I need to find time, and space, to get my sewing machine out and get sewing. I have tried crochet, but nope. Just can’t get my head around it!
  7. Without looking it up, what is a jerkinhead?
    My brother. He’s a total jerkinhead!!
  8. If you could have as much of one food as you wanted forever, what would it be?
    Bread. There are so many different types of bread (is that cheating? Or does it just have to be one type of bread I choose!?) that you will never get bored.
  9. What is the scariest thing you’ve ever done?
    White water rafting down the Zambezi river. There are so many crazy ass rapids there, and also crocodiles in the river if/when you fall in!
  10. If you needed a getaway driver, who would you choose?
    Probably my friend Andrew. He’s a god driver, and also does a lot of track days so can, and does, drive fast!
  11. Would you rather live in Narnia or at Hogwarts?
    Does anyone actually choose Narnia!?! Hogwarts all the way!
  12. What snack food says ‘Christmas’ to you?
    Werther’s Originals. It’s the only time of year I eat them.
  13. Is there life on Mars?
    I have no idea. Possibly.
  14. Which Christmas movie would you be a character in, and who would play you?
    Miracle on 34th Street is my favourite Christmas movie, so I’d have to go with that. Who would play me? I love Rachel McAdams, so probably her.
  15. What are you proudest of?
    I am most proud of my darling Isla Bear. She is such an amazing little girl, and she continues to surprise me every day with what she understands and knows. It’s such a cheesy thing to say I’m so proud of her, but I really am.

As I said, I’m quite nervous about going. So if you fancy being super lovely to an anxious conference newby, please look out for me and say hi!! Here’s a photo of what I look like these days, as I’m not planning on coming in my wedding dress I’m afraid, so you may not recognise me from the photo above!! (I’ll be leaving Isla with her Daddy, Grandma and Grandpa though)

    Don’t be overawed just because it’s your first. So many of us bloggers are quite shy people but we’ll always say hi (and then stare awkwardly at our feet – or is that just me?)
