The October Blog Tag

Every now and then as bloggers we have other fantastic bloggers who tag us in their posts to join in with something called a blog tag. A blog tag is where there are a series of questions that we have to answer and then tag other bloggers to find out more about each other. This week I was tagged in the October blog tag by the beautiful and very lovely Gee Gardner

The October Blog Tag


What is your favourite colour?
My favourite colour is turquoise however I tell my kids it’s purple because it’s easier to say and I like purple too 🙂

What did you do today?
Well it’s only almost 10am but so far I have woke up, taken my dad to work because his car is broken, checked the views on my new YouTube video which is a parody of Geroge Ezra’s Shotgun only I’ve renamed it school run.. have a little watch of it here.
Taken the kids to school ( only just got them there on time was running very late this morning ) answered emails and now I’m writing this.

Where are you currently?
Sat in the kitchen at the table with the laptop.

What is your star sign?
I’m an Aquarius and I’m chuffed that I remain Aquarius even with the addition of an extra star sign.

Cake or Ice cream?
Cake, I have very sensitive teeth so me and Ice-cream don’t mix well!

Frozen or Moana?

I’ve never seen Moana so I will say Frozen although I’m very grateful Annabelle has now outgrown her obsession with it.

A night in or a night out?
This one is difficult because I absolutely love nothing more than snuggling up on the sofa in my pjs, dressing gown and slippers all cosy. However I do love a good night out. I’ve been told I’m a bit of a bad influence , I say I’d make a good sales rep because I’m very good at convincing people things are a good idea 😉

Home cooked meal or takeaway?
Home cooked wins this hands down. I love cooking and I’m pretty good at it BUT I can’t bake for s*it.

Pineapple on pizza or no pineapple on pizza?
Pineapple is amazing on pizza!

Books or films?
I like both but would probably have to say films. If ever I’m feeling down or in a bit of a slump I whack on a Christmas Film and the world is much brighter.

Autumn or spring?
Autumn because it means it’s almost Christmas and I absolutely adore Christmas.

Flowers or chocolates?
Flowers , this may shock the world as I’m a fatty but I’m really not overly fussed chocolate, I can take it or leave it.

Full fat or diet coke?
I genuinely don’t care , they taste the same to me.

Phone or laptop?
Phone, it’s handy when I’m playing taxi to everyone and have to sit in the car waiting. God knows how my Dad coped with driving me round and waiting hours without a phone!

What is your current favourite TV series?
I’ve just discovered The Good Doctor and it’s just brilliant. It’s about an autistic man who is a surgeon. Look it up ( it’s not the one on Netflix) honestly it’s worth watching.

What is your favourite thing to do in October?
It’s the only month where I don’t have to care what I look like because everyone dresses up and looks stupid so I just slot right on in there.

What is your current food to crave?
Cheese, I LOVE cheese. It is officially the best food in the world

Do you have any piercings or tattoos?
I do! I have my ears and tongue pierced although I never wear them. Having my tongue done was one of the biggest mistakes I made with my body. It absolutely destroyed my teeth.
I have Tweety Pie on my arm and stars on the back of my shoulder ( although I forget about that one because I can’t see it)

Are you an introvert or extrovert?
Extrovert, I absolutely love being around people and meeting new friends.

What is your all time favourite Halloween film?
I don’t have one

Name your top 3 favourite artists/bands.
Ultrabeat ( seen him live he was bloomin amazing!)

Have you got any plans for Halloween?
I’ve arranged a Halloween party the Saturday before but may have to cancel it due to other commitments. We are also very excited to be going to Jungleland to review their event.

Do you have any fears?
I am absolutely petrified of planes, I don’t even like them flying over my head.

Do you believe in life after love?
If you had asked me a couple of months ago I would have probably said not really but now I do. My life is pretty good at the moment anyway.

Do you have any children? (or animals you treat as your babies)?
I have 3 girls and 2 boys

What do you want for your future?
I just want happiness and to feel secure. I’m not a materialistic person at all so happiness and contentment is enough for me.

Be honest, why did you start blogging?
I was going through a really tough time ( nothing unusual for me) and I wrote a status on Facebook saying ” You really couldn’t write this s*it” I sat there and thought actually I could and Mummy of 5 Miracles was born.

What is your biggest achievement so far?
Having my beautiful babies after being told that I wouldn’t be able to have children and getting myself prepared to adopt.

What are your ambitions with your blog?
I originally started it just as somewhere to vent out what was happening in my life but as my blog has grown I have too. I would be lying if I said I didn’t want it to be as popular as some of the bigger bloggers around. I love it when I get feedback from people saying my blogs have helped them to see they aren’t alone so even if it doesn’t go anywhere as long as it keeps helping people I’m happy.

If there is one thing you’d like to change about your blog what would it be?
Honestly? Right now nothing. The way it is works for me. I could probably do with a decent camera so that my pictures are clearer.

Have you achieved any blog goals you set out to do this year?
I didn’t really set myself any. I’m a if it works then it works , if it doesn’t then I haven’t lost anything kind of girl.

Where do you want to be in 10 years time?
In 10 years I would love to be happy, content and maybe have my own home ( we can all dream right?)

What is your dream holiday?
Something I’ve always wanted to do is go to a cabin or cottage in the countryside, open fire. Fluffy rug and a nice hot coffee. That would be a perfect holiday to me.

If you had an entire day to yourself what would you do?
Catch up on blog work and just enjoy the peace and quiet
