My questions to answer

1.    Why did you start blogging?
I started as a way to record what was going on in my head. I've always written and read lots and this was the perfect combination for me (or obsession).
2.    Mountain hideaway or a beach house?
See I'm going to contradict myself a bit further on but for me it would be a beach house, I really want a beach hut when I win the lottery.
3.    Red or White?
White or Rose, red gives me an instant hangover which is a bit annoying.
4.    Summer or winter?
I'm a winter girl,  nothing better than kicking through the leaves on an autumn day. I like spring but summer is just too hot for my fair skin and I burn rather than tan.
5.    Hot chocolate or coffee?
Coffee all the way, a nice filtered job does the trick every time
6.    Strength training or cardio?
I used to enjoy cardio but now would rather do strength training as I want a strong body that will see me through the years
7.    Computer or television?
This is tough, I often resort to the tv out of habit but I'm always on the internet on my phone. At the moment I'd probably miss social network sites more than television.
8.    Rolling Stones or Beatles?
Beatles would be my preference but I'm not mad keen on either really
9.    Sidney or Paris?
Paris is nice and Sidney I didn't really have an opinion on (although did love Manly a lot). For me it's the hustle and bustle and potential that only New York offers.
10.  Alaska or Hawaii?
Alaska but other than the heat thing I'm not sure why
11.  Early bird or night owl
I'm somewhere in between, I'm not one for really late nights as I get older and if it's too early I have a meltdown. Guess I'm more morning than night.

11 Random Facts About me....
  • I believe in fairies...well sort of, I believe in the idea of believing. When I was younger my mum used to put fairy dust (imaginary) into my bag or hand or whatever I had to give me courage in a strange situation and said to sprinkle it if I felt the need.
  • I have wings...yes I know I'm starting to sound like a freak but in my 20s I had a set of fairy wings (joke present from the above fact). I would wear them (indoors only) whenever I felt sad and they worked - think its the whole acting like a child and releasing negative energy! (well that's my excuse).
  • I like going to watch Barry Manilow in concert. I've been three times, I don't listen to his music any other time but The.Man.Is.Electric in a weird charismatic way.
  • I love learning - hoping to do my Masters next year. Did my Degree with the Open University whilst working full time.
  • I want a beach hut that I'd paint stripy and go vintage inside.
  • I really would like to go to a dinner party hosted by Nigel Slater, he makes lovely food
  • I get grumpy if I don't have enough sleep
  • I haven't read a book properly for a year now
  • I'm addicted to reading magazines
  • I like to find out what motivates people
  • I hate the thought of people being left out.

11 questions for my nominees to answer
1) When do you find the time to blog?
