I was recently tagged by the very lovely to answer a selection of questions from The Guardian weekend magazine.

Not sure honesty is always the best policy but here goes...................

Which living person do I most admire and why?

Without knowing it at the time, probably when I was a kid with no responsibilities.
As an adult probably when I started going out with my now husband.

When was your most embarrassing moment?
Oh I've had far too many to list but one of them would be when I went into hospital in labour with my 1st baby and still being a bit shy of putting my bits and bobs on show. Until the midwife said to me ' Well love if you want to have this baby the knickers need to come off'!!!!!!!

Where would you like to live?
By the sea.

What is your favourite smell?
Anything vanilla or the smell of hot chocolate, I never think it tastes as good as it smells.

Who would play you in a film of your life?
Kate Winslet would be great or someone just as glamorous but knowing my luck it would be Kathy Burke!!

In Cold Blood  which I read for A level English many moons ago.

What is your most unappealing habit?
None of course.................I'm sure I'm perfect!

'Bizarre' 'isn't it' and 'unlucky ducky'---don't ask!

What is the worst job you've ever done?
Cleaning toilets other people have used ( when on ablution duty in Forces training)!!!!

If you could edit your past what would you change?
I would have made the phone call to my Dad that I put off, because I was in a rush to get out with the boys, the day he died.

Not my own, but seeing my dad for the 1st time in hospital after he had died!!

What is the most important lesson life has taught you?
Try to enjoy each day if you can as you never know whats around the corner. Easier said than done but worth trying.
