All About Me

I've been tagged by the lovely Karen at Adventures of a Monkey Footed Mummy to take part in an 'all about me' (thank you!).  So, here goes!

First things first - your name and what you do?
I'm Kate, wife to D, Mummy to 1 one year old E with our second baby due in March.  I work (mostly) from home in admin.

I live at home with....
We currently live with my in-laws so I live with them, my husband and daughter. As well as our various pets (we have cats, goats, sheep, geese, chickens, and guinea fowl).

My favourite thing to do is
Top of the list is spending time with E but coming in at a very close second is locking myself away in my studio and sewing.

Handmade bunting

My favourite thing to eat is...
Sweet - Chocolate
Savoury - Cheese

When I get cross I...
I try to take 5 minutes away by myself, depending on what (or who!) has made me cross!

Sometimes I worry because...
I'm a worrier. I worry about anything and everything but what worries me most is my children and their future - whether they are happy, healthy, safe etc. 

My favourite book is...
I've always loved the Beatrix Potter books (I still have my collection from childhood) as they are so innocent and beautifully written and illustrated. With regard to 'grown up' books, there's a few but its been so long since I managed to read a book that titles and authors escape me!

My favourite toy is...
My iPad! D brought it just after E was born and I'd be lost without it. I use it for everything - emails, work, banking, reading the papers, playing videos for E! 
I dislike...
There's a few on my 'dislike' list but top of the list includes:
  • Bad manners - it doesn't cost anything to say please and thank you
  • Liars
  • Arrogance
  • Litter bugs
  • Bad drivers
When I grow up I want to be...
I have never known what I want to be when I grow up, I've just drifted along, hoping for the best!  Thinking of myself as grown up still seems so far away, despite now being in my 30's! So, when I grow up I would like to be making a living from sewing and crafting - doing something I love. Far more importantly to me though, in my personal life, when I grow up I want to be a good mum, so that my children enjoy spending time with me and can come to about anything.

So, that's me. I'm tagging anyone that would like to take part! Do leave a comment so I can check out your post.
