A-Z of Me

I haven't been tagged in a meme for a while now and this week I have been tagged for the same one twice in a row? I better not waste time then and answer the questions that I've been sent by the lovely Jenny over at Mummy Mishaps and by my fellow Bristolian Frances over at Mother Venting. So here we go:

ANORAK…Do you have a sad side? I get really funny when people write in text speak. I know writing "U" instead of "you" saves you two characters but argh I just can't stand it. Words are there to be spelled out properly and really winds me up when someone doesn't.

BODY…What physical attribute would you most like to change?
Ok, did you bring plenty of time and a cup of coffee because there is plenty that I would change if it didn't involve that much effort and discipline. My bum, my legs, my tummy, my bingo wings are all things that I don't really like about my body and well, I guess if I think about it long enough about it, the list would go get even longer but I think I just have to accept that I'll never be a size 10 and just try to live as healthy as possible. I have set myself the challenge to make a conscious effort of getting a healthier and more attractive body once I have stopped breast feeding.

CELEBRITY…Which one would you most like to date and why?
Hm, can I make one person out of David Beckham and Brad Pitt? I like the look of David Beckham and he seems to be a genuinely nice guy but ehm is voice might be a hard to get used to so if I could give him Brad's voice that would be fab.

DEBUT …Tell us about your first ever blog post. What made you start blogging? 
I honestly can't remember what my first ever blog post was. I have had several blogs that I wrote over the years and they all accompanied me in different situations. I blogged while I did my A-Levels and started uni, I blogged about everything and nothing in about 2006 and I blogged when I came to England in 2008 to keep in touch with my family and friends back in Germany. I love writing, so blogging is a great creative way for me to keep record of the different stages of my life.

ERROR …What’s been your biggest regret? 
It might sound big headed and I guess the one or the other person in my life can think of something I should put here but in the end I am happy where I am now and I wouldn't be here if I hadn't made mistakes along the way.

FUNNY – who’s making you laugh?
My boyfriend. He's cracking me up sometimes. His jokes come so surprisingly and he always manages to put a smile on my face and there is Amy, of course. She just started giggling and we often just giggle at each other because we love the sound of each other's voices so much. I'm not that much into comedians but my absolute favourite is Alan Carr. He is hilarious and is so likeable that he gets away with being naughty to the biggest divas in the world.

GRAND…If we gave you one right now what would you spend it on?
If you want me to spend it reasonably, I would buy a new oven and get my driving license. If I could spend it on whatever I want, I would go on a nice holiday to Italy with my little family.


HOLIDAY… What’s your favourite destination?
I don't have a favourite destination, I guess. I love traveling so much that I am curious about exploring as many countries as I can. However, I really love Budapest and Florence.

IRRITATE… What’s your most annoying habit?
I used to bite my nails for all my life but falling pregnant with Amy stopped me do it and I still haven't done it again, so that one is off the list. I think though that I am sometimes too stubborn. I find it hard to admit that I am wrong about something and I can go days ignoring someone if I think that I've been treated unfairly.

JOKER…Whats your favourite joke {the one that makes you laugh everytime you hear it}? 
"What is green and running through the woods?" - "A bunch of cucumbers!" "Have you ever seen cucumbers running through the woods?" - "No!" - "See, that's how fast they are!"

KENNEL… Do you have any pets?
Yes, a cat called Honey.

LOVE…Are you single, married, engaged, living with a long term partner?
I am living with my boyfriend Ben who I have been together with for almost three years. He is also Amy's daddy.

MEAL… Whats your ultimate starter, main and dessert? My perfect 3-course menu would be green asparagus wrapped in parma ham with a nice vinaigrette for starters, pork chops with melted brie, garlic sauteed potatoes, green asparagus and creamy mushrooms for my main course and Ben's homemade tiramisu for dessert.

NOW…If you could be anywhere right now where would you be and who with?
I'm where I want to be - with my lovely little family. Nicer weather would be great though!

OFF DUTY…What do you do in your spare time? 
Spare what? Amy makes sure I don't have too much of it but if I have some time to myself, I like to read blogs, magazines, newspaper and chat away with my family and friends. I also used to go swimming regularly, so once I've stopped breast feeding I would love to take it up again.

PROUD MOMENTS …What are you most proud of?
My little family...

QUEASY …What turns your stomach?
White foods such as milk, rice pudding, egg white, cream and bananas give me the creeps. I can't even stand smelling them, so no way am I letting them anywhere near my stomach.

RELAX…How do you relax? 
I love snuggling up on the sofa, reading blogs or a nice magazine and munching on chocolate or popcorn. A good chat on the phone to my mum is also on top of my list.

SONG…Whats your favourite song of all time?
Elton John's 'Your Song' - I absolutely love this song and if I ever get married, I would love it to be my first dance. I also have a real soft spot for 'Living on a Prayer' by Bon Jovi and most Take That and Robbie Williams songs but then again, I am an absolute music junkie and can be caught singing to absolutely everything.

TIME …If you could go back in time and relive it again, when would you choose?
I would love to go back in time and spend some more time with my grandad who passed away last year. I hadn't seen him for two years before he passed away and thinking back, I feel really bad for not having made the effort of saving more money to travel to see him when I moved to the UK.

UNKNOWN…Tell us something about yourself that no one else knows?
Ehm no ;)

VOCAL…. Who is your favourite artist? I admire the musical talent of Freddie Mercury and Elton John and if you are asking for an artist in the sense of painter, then my favourite is Keith Haring. I love his modern twist of art and the vibrant colours he used for his pieces of art.

WORK….. What is your dream job, and are you doing it now?
Yes, I have always wanted to be a journalist and working with language and in different types of media is something that gives me big satisfaction. It is creative, never boring and challenging at times - just how I like it.

XRAY…Any broken bones? 
Hell yes. You name it, it's been broken. My left arm was broken on three different occasions, my right arm cracked once, my left leg had sprained ligaments on so many occasions that I have lost count and as for my right leg, well,don't get my started on that one. The story would make a whole new blog post.

YIKES…What’s been your most embarrassing moment?
I fancied that boy when I was about 16 and when I quickly popped out in my tracksuit bottoms and with messy hair, I noticed him on the other side of the road. I quickly grabbed my magazine, held it up in front of my face, pretending I was reading and slipped off the pavement. Result? Sprained ligaments...

ZOO…. If you were an animal, which one would you be? A cat, because they get spoiled all the time.
