Darling from a distance...

I am on holiday.  I am.  But I was also very honoured to have been nominated for a second Liebster award by the lovely Katy from Five on the Door.   I must say I was chuffed to bits!  Thank you my dear.  I only found Katy's blog recently and it's bloomin' great, she writes about her life and her little family so beautifully that I just feel drawn in, do have a butchers....

Here are the questions she asked me and here are my answers:

1. What would your dream gig be?
I saw David Bowie play once many, many years ago.  It threw it down with rain and I was the wettest I have ever been in my life, it was seriously torrential, but I was completely and totally and utterly mesmerised by that astounding man.  I would love LOVE to see him play live again.  Though I can't guarantee I wouldn't do the same thing again and stand slack jawed and rooted to the spot.  I couldn't talk afterwards, it was AMAZING.

2. Who is your favourite literary character and why?
Gosh, this is such a difficult question to answer, there are just so many choices aren't there?  I think I'm going to plump for Daenerys Targaryen from the Game of Thrones series, because that's what I'm reading at the moment.  She's a hugely fiesty, determined character and I am fascinated by what she's going to do next. She takes no prisoners and doesn't suffer fools.  Plus Mr Husband (secretly) thinks she's sexy.  Bonus!

3. What has been the best year of your life so far?
That's an easy one!  2007.  I was young, free, single and having the time of my life, within that year I met my wonderful husband and we also found out we were expecting my oldest daughter.  The year before had been a bit of a miserable one in my life, but in retrospect this made the contrast between the two all the sweeter.

4. Who is your secret crush?
Alan Rickman.  Hands down!  I don't know what it is about him, his voice, the dark brooding look he has in Harry Potter as Snape.  The bad, bad boy that he plays in Love, Actually.  Alan Rickman.  Grrrrrrrrr......

5. Guilty pleasure?
Made in Chelsea.  I KNOW I shouldn't.  I never, ever watch reality TV, but for some reason this just sucked me in and I cannot (try as I might) extract myself.

6. Tastiest snack?
Peanut Puffs.  They're like Wotsits slathered in peanut butter.  Dreadful for you.  Bloody amazing though.  

7. Who would play you in the film of your life?
Helena Bonham-Carter.  Because she's mad as a bag of cats, seriously bloody gorgeous, and if she played me I'd get to meet her, which would be quite fabulous.  We'd be really jolly good friends and drink vodka together and talk rubbish on Sunday nights.

8.Which one of your senses could you least live without?
Hmmmm, tough one.  If I had to choose I'd say taste.  Life would be so boring without it wouldn't it?  

9. Favourite cocktail?
Mojito!  Hell yeah!  Keep anything with tequila in well, well away from me....ugh.....I once ended up with a Mexican Mojito by accident, so disappointed!

10. Who would be your dream prime minister?
Bill Bailey!  He could cheer up bad news about budget cuts with an amusing little ditty and nobody would mind because they'd all be too busy chortling, right?

11. Finally, if you were a vegetable, what would you be?
Beetroot.  My oldest daughter recently proclaimed that beetroot was the best vegetable in the world because it's the pinkest!

I'm going to cheat a bit and post the same questions I asked last time:

1. What was the first single or album you owned?
2. What do you have recurring dreams about?
3. What was your nickname at school, and why?
4. Have you ever had road rage?
5. What can't you leave the house without?
6. What song can you sing from start to finish without checking the words?
7. Ever chatted up a stranger? Dish!
8. What's your Wu Tang name?
9. Have you ever danced on the tables?
10. Where's your happy place?
11. Can you do the Macarena?

Only this time I'm going to ask them to these wonderful ladies:

Loo at Jumble and Pompoms
Lauren at My Life In an English Cottage
Abi at The Good, The Bad and The Quirky
Alex at Bump to Baby
Beth at Bethany Marie
Julia at Tea, Cake and My Boy
Alice at The Cup and Saucer
Chelsea at MS Mummy of Two
