Tag! You're it.....

Oh my goodness, I've been tagged - twice!

I've been enjoying reading all the answers from the bloggers playing this game, they're such an interesting and inspiring bunch! Anyhoo, I've been tagged by the very lovely les petite choses de la madame and the equally lovely floor number four.

So this is what I have to do now!

^ Post these rules
^ Post 11 things about yourself
^ Answer the questions provided by the one who tagged you
^ Create 11 new questions for the people you tag
^ Go to their blog and tell them they've been tagged!

But because I've been tagged twice, I'm thinking that's 22 questions I'd have to answer and quite frankly, I think you'll be bored of me by then! So I'm going to be a bit of a cheat and only answer 11, but I'm going to take my favourite questions from both taggers and answer those. I hope that's okay with you both!

But first 11 random things about me:

^ Aubergine is my favourite food. I could eat it all day, every     day.

^ I have a tattoo of a seahorse on my left shoulder.

^ I'd like to live on a Houseboat.

^ My memory is shocking. Quite often I can't remember peoples' names!

^ I love travelling by train. I'd like to do a long journey by train across Canada when I retire.

^ I'm great at rowing boats. (years of practice rowing on lochs for my Dad, whilst he fished)

^ I want to fly a hot air balloon.

^ I'm rubbish at being girly. I've always been a bit of a tomboy.

^ I once bit off my tongue and had to have it stitched back on.

^ I'm afraid of moths.

^ I love Chevy Chase movies!

So now to questions from my taggers:

I've chosen 5 from each of you and then I had to pick this last question as I just loved it.

If tomorrow you had to live on a desert island, what three albums would you take with you?
^ Madonna - the Immaculate Collection.
^ Mumford and Sons - Sigh No More
^ The B-52s - Dance This Mess Around

Would you rather have foam arms or wooden teeth?
^ This totally made me laugh! But I'd have to pick wooden teeth. 

Panda or Koala?
^ Koala - they can climb trees, carry their young in that pouch thing and have a much more interesting diet!

Have you ever tasted anything/eaten something (like an eraser/chalk etc)?
^ I once ate a rubber finger puppet.I think I was about 8 years old! (see picture below!)

Tea or coffee?
^ Coffee

Which is your favourite film?
^ Heathers.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
^ Paris. I worked there for a month, and I fell in love with the City.

What superhero power would you like to have?
^ Telekinesis. I'd love to be able to move things with my mind. No more housework - imagine!

What is your favourite smell?
^ Fresh thyme growing in the garden - heavenly.

Which actress/starlet of all time do you like the look of?
^ Both Audreys - Hepburn and Tatou. Simplicity is everything.

The reasons that pushed you to have your blog?
^ I loved this question. And I think the answer is simple - I wanted something just for me. I'd had a rubbish couple of years, I left my job(I resigned as I was absolutely miserable) and I was left wondering about my life. Most of my friends were Mums and we spent most of our time talking about the kids/parenting etc. We didn't (and still don't) really have a lot of shared interests/tastes and I found that my blog gave me the opportunity to connect with people who do! I'm so surprised that people like reading it. It lifts my spirits in so many ways. So thanks to all for that!

So now I'm going to tag some fellow bloggers! I've chosen some lovely blogs that I've just discovered recently. Please check them out!

^ Sweet or savoury?
^ Who was your childhood hero?
^ What would be your dream job?

^ What really annoys you?
^ What colour are your eyes?
^ What is your favourite piece of art?
^ Beer, wine or cider?
^ What's the nicest thing that has happened to you recently?

I'm so tired now! Thanks for reading. Have a lovely day. x
