It's all about ME!!!!!!!!!

It's all about ME.....

The inexhaustible, serendipitous SuperAmazingMum has tagged me...AGAIN!  I have failed to complete the last "interview" she tagged me in as I found some of the answers needed to bring all my emotions to the fore and I haven't got the time or energy to wallow in self-pity!! So I am going to give this "interview" a go........

If you could go back in time to relive one moment, what would it be?

That's hard because I have a list of Top 10 Moments in my life and I would repeat them all. Some of them are sporting moments....(Hahaha! NOT MINE!!!) England beating NZ in the Rugby, Chelsea lifting various trophies. But the ONE memory which I relive over and over again is the moment I met my Niece - 21 years ago. My sister and her husband were living in South Africa and my niece was born in the April.  They came back to England for Christmas.  I went to the long-haul arrivals lounge at Heathrow feeling slightly nervous.  I knew there was a chance that, as a small child, she would push me away and want to be back with her Mummy. I need not have worried. They came through the Baggage Hall and my sister handed her over to me across the barrier. We "bonded"(!) immediately. I cried, the total strangers around me cried and so began one of the greatest love affairs of my life. 
If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?

Probably come out of the womb of another Mother!! I wanted a fluffy cookie baking mummy who was proud of everything her children did. Instead I got a socialite whose children were brought out as handbag accessories when small and whose children, no matter how successful, were never good enough.  Anyone seen Mommy Dearest.......?! It was a life long battleground. Bitter??!! ME??!!

What movie or TV character do you think you resemble most in personality?
Many years ago someone stopped me in Harrods and asked me for my autograph because they thought I was Victoria Wood!!! I obliged! We had similar haircuts and physique at the time. I like to think I'm funny but I would love to be as brilliantly amusing as she is!

Which TV or movie character would you like to be?

Oh that's easy. Pretty Woman. Swept off her feet by a billionaire!



If you could push one person in the whole world off a cliff and get away with it, who would it be?

Unlike SuperAmazingMum I have a l-o-n-g list of people I would happily push off a cliff!! However, as I have mentioned in a previous blog: I would happily push Katie Price off a cliff. I'm not posting a picture of her.....she's on the front pages of most papers if you want to see her!!!

Name one habit you want to change in yourself.

You see, here I should put "smoking". I know it's bad for me, expensive, blah blah....but I don't want to! Because of serious ill health in the last two years (not smoking related!!) I live a very rigid organised life. Even my dog knows the timings of our day and will whine at 1.30 because it's time to go upstairs for a nap! I would like to change all that one day and run free!!

Describe yourself in one word.


Describe the person who named you in this MEME in one word.

You can't possibly describe her in one word!! Oh ok then: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Why do you blog? Answer in one sentence.

It's therapeutic and I pathetically believe others just might enjoy my ramblings and musings!

Name at least 3 people or more to send this MEME, and then inform them.



  1. Hurrah! Always nice to get an insight into other people!!!
