Fill In the Blanks Friday

10 August 2012

I haven't joined in with this linky for such a long time but I read Lauren's weekly post at The Little Things We Do and always sit here thinking what my answers would be!

This week is Lauren's birthday so it's all birthday themed questions...

1  //  The age that I will be on my next birthday is...  37. Oh God only three years left of my thirties!

2  //  The best birthday present ever would be... a new house. Ours has been on the market for a long time but we've had no luck selling. So if we sold our house and moved into a beautiful, bigger house with a lovely garden I would be the happiest woman in the world!

3  //  My favourite birthday to date was... my 25th birthday as I was on holiday in Crete. What better way to spend your birthday than soaking up the sun, drinking cocktails and partying all night?!

4 //  Birthdays always make me feel... old! When I was in my early twenties, I thought I would be married with two children by the age of thirty... but it didn't quite go as planned. I got married at 29, had Oliver at 33 and Lydia at 35. I kind of wish I'd been younger when I had my kids. I don't do regrets as I believe everything happens for a reason but it's just something that I feel didn't go to plan.

5  //  The worst birthday I ever had was... I can't really think of a bad birthday I've had! I suppose it might be when I was pregnant with Lydia. I was 7 months pregnant, could hardly walk as I had such bad SPD, couldn't eat anything sweet as I had gestational diabetes and had a 21 month old Oliver to run round after. I was quite miserable!

6  //  When I was born... my Dad wasn't there! My Mum was in hospital which was only about 15 minutes walk from their house. The midwife told my dad to go home as it would be ages until I was born. But then things speeded up, they rang him to come back but he was too late, so missed me making my appearance into the world!

7  //  So far my favourite age has been... 33. The year I became a mummy!

Have a brilliant weekend everyone!


  1. I agree wholeheartedly that everything happens for a reason and I've only just found your blog - it's gorgeous and I love your baking <3

  2. Fingers crossed you sell your house soon! And your favorite birthday sounds fantastic! I hope I get one of those soon! :)

    Stopping by from the link-up! Happy Friday!
