So, in a few weeks I might just get to meet the awesome Trouble Doubled - someone whom I have known since the early days of blogging, and now thanks to her tag- you get to read this post!
So, now you get the answers, to the questions she is making me think about!
Note: she will always make you think!
Who or what encouraged you to start blogging?
It was obviously a moment of inspiration, so much so I can barely remember it.
I was using the TAMBA forum quite a bit when I was on maternity leave with Tom & Seb. I think a couple of parents had begun blogging and after exploring, and finding some fantastic blogs.
Well, it seemed like a good idea.
Oddly, I had set up a blog a year earlier for a #365 photography project. Which lasted a day.
I therefore like to think my blog now represents continuous improvement!
How did you choose what to blog about?
I'd like to think I distinguished. My blog was, and remains, verbal diarrhoea. Or, as I like to think of it, my online diary.
I started, just blogging about life as a mum of three. Which remains. But now. Now, I am a better baker (the blog is a great record of this). Now, my children are three years older. After Easter, the maternity leave that motivated my blog becomes a memory- as Tom and Seb start school. Ouch.
What is something most people don't know about you?
What a tip my office is.
I am organised by trade, I am a programme manager. It's not negotiable.
I was a mum of three under-two's. To not plan was to not leave the house.
And yet, like my childhood, my own space is chaos.
My mum hated it. Not only was it, in her eyes, a mess- but infuriatingly I could lay my hands on anything I needed. It remains that way.
People assume I keep an organised, tidy desk.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Based on the last response:
An Organised Mess.
What do you love to do when you are not blogging?
I am usually doing two things when I'm not working: holding down the day job or spending time with my family. I am guessing it's obvious which one I love.
As well as being with Mr J and the little people, I have also begun Zumba, and I love this 'me time'- school holidays get in the way, which reinforce the need for a teeny bit of me, away from work and home.
