I have been tagged!

I was going to put this on the bottom of my last post but thought it deserved a post all its own!

I was tagged in a game of “Blog tag” by the lovely Marieka from one of my favourite blogs, Bespoke Bites!

Here are the rules!

  • every tagged person has to tell 11 things about themselves
  • the person who tagged you asked 11 questions, answer them
  • ask 11 questions for the 11 blogs you’re going to tag (the people you tag should have less than 200 followers)
  • mention the blog that tagged you, but don’t tag them back.

    11 Things about me :

1. I am the eldest of 4 and am very close to my Mum. I dont speak to my ‘father’ tho
2. My favourite colour is Purple
3. I have always wanted to travel. Apart from travelling, I had no idea what I wanted to do when I left school.
4. Sadly I havent travelled very much haha
5. We are planning a trip to Fiji next year!
6. I am doing a TAFE course starting in January. Its been a long time between classes, so wish me luck!
7. I have had 2 patches of paint colour on one of my walls for over 2 years but cant decide what colour I want – niether of them appeal to me now and I dont know where to go from here! lol I just know I dont like blue and want it changed, so for now, there it stays lol
8. I love dragonflys and plan on having one for my first tattoo
9. I dislike ironing. I used to love it, but have ironed for 2 clients for the last year and now hate it. I just quit my 2 clients *phew!* πŸ™‚
10. I am allergic to bee stings, cats, brandy and sometimes (??) mango.
11. I love cars and worked for Avis for 10 years. The owner once joked that he should send me to his workshops and give me an apprentiship. I wished he wasnt joking, I would have loved to do it.

Here are the questions asked of me and my answers :
1. Where is your favourite place to visit?

I don’t tend to visit somewhere more than once, unless its to visit someone. I figure if I am going to spend a chunk of change I may as well see a different corner of the world. So far, I really enjoy going to W.A. They have, in my opinion, some of the most spectacular beaches in the world and we are blessed to have some beautiful people to visit while we are in the region.
2. How long have you been living where you are now?
4 years, 2 months, 2 weeks and 2 days and I only started loving it here about 18mths – 2 years in.
3. Do you have a no-fail recipe? What is it?
Yes! I make a wicked Chilli Noodles … If we weren’t going away tomorrow I would make it and post the recipe with a pic. If we get home early enough Sunday I will! If not, I will do it next weekend πŸ™‚
4. What’s the last good book you read?
I just finished the Millenium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson a couple of weeks ago. It was excellent! The last one was called “The Girl Who KickedΒ  A Hornets Nest” I knew he had passed away before they were published, but I recently learned he had penned them with the plan of a 10 book series, but tragically died before finishing the 4th installment 😦
5. What’s your “real job”?
At the moment, my ‘real job’ is at Bunnings Replenishment. I am working towards a different career when the boys are both in school.
6. Would you choose it again? Why or why not?
Yes. It’s a good job, and they’re a good company to work for. Most importantly, its flexible which fits in well with where my family’s at right now.
7. What would be your dream job?
Easy!! Presenter on Getaway! haha πŸ˜€
8. Are you a radio listener? Talkback or music?
In the car only. We don’t even own a radio in the house lol Music all the way, I dislike talkback with a passion! {I got myself an iPod for Xmas}
9. Are you a sweet tooth or a savoury person?
Savoury all the way
10. What would be your ideal Sunday?
A sleep in, a bit of sewing, some gardening maybe, a BBQ on the beach, kids early to bed and then some more sewing
11. What’s the best piece of housekeeping advice that you have received?
Keep on top of things. Do it as you go and it wont be such a mammoth chore later!

Here are the 11 Questions I am asking :
1. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? Did you do it?
2. What is your dream job now?
3. What has been your favourite holiday destination?
4. Do you have kids or pets?
5. Name the last good movie yousaw?
