Meet My Giant Bottom on Monday…

Posted on

It’s time for Meet a Bigger Part of Me on Monday. And no, I don’t meet my bottom.

I’m linking up the lovely Java on Never Growing Old for Monday’s blog-hop. Every week she posts five questions and us blog-hoppers answers these questions on our blogs and then link up to read everyone else’s answers!

1.  If you had to eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Hmm, well I answered this one last week – roast chicken – yum, yum! So I’ll go with my second favourite food this time, and this one might surprise you – salad! I love a huge plateful of assorted salad stuff; it’s a bit like Pick ‘n’ Mix that’s good fer yer bowels! Iceberg lettuce, rocket, herbs, cucumber, fresh tomato slices, green grapes, avocado strips, cold sweetcorn, grated cheese, ham and chicken pieces, coleslaw, peanuts …Yum! Yum!

2.  Do you write your blog posts in advance or the day you post them?

I write them pretty much on the run. I try to spend Monday writing them all for the week, but rarely manage it. Something always seems to get in the way. Today I needed to get some links and stuff back on my sidebar and would my computer co-operate? Of course not! It just kept sending up ‘Internet Explorer Not Responding!’ messages like I hadn’t noticed! Well, let me tell you, Condescending-Browser-Bar, I did  notice, and if you’d have been paying any kind of attention, you’d have bleedin’ well realised! The constant, agitated swearing through gritted teeth kind should have provided a bit of a clue!

3.What is your favorite candle scent?

Depends on my mood and how badly I need to mask the smell of wet dog. I love cinnamon, vanilla or chocolate, but at the moment I’m into Summer Berries scented candles.

4. Have you ever been in an ambulance?

Only once when Youngest was about four – he had a massively high temperature which refused to be treated and he ended up having febrile convulsions. I’ve never been so scared in my life – he started jerking, then his eyes rolled to the back of his head and he was ‘gone’! I honestly thought he’d died. There I was, trying to be coherent on the phone, calling an ambulance when all I wanted to do was belt round the house like a mad, screaming banshee-woman, yelling for them to DRIVE FASTERRRRR!!
It was horrible, even with the company of paramedics in uniforms, it was just awful!

5. Coffee or tea?

Tea, and I like it how I like my men – dark, strong and hot. I usually end up settling for wet and warm, but a girl needs something great to aim for, doesn’t she?

  1. Hi, I’m visiting from Meet Me On Monday. I think you have something with the salad choice. I agree a well made salad is delicious!

  2. LMAO!! OMG, I needed a good laugh today!!

    Oh, Edinburgh has a blog? cool…

    As for the paramedics….DID YOU GET THEIR NAMES??


    Hmmm, same taste in men that I have, add TALL to that. Never had tall tea though.

  3. “Tea, and I like it how I like my men – dark, strong and hot.”

    Yes, I like that!!!!

  4. I am a salad addict. With all the trimmings, of course! That ambulance story is scary to me and I wasn’t even there! And it’s tea for me—green tea with splenda and ice!

    • That ambulance ride was scary; I really thought we’d lost lost him 😦 He’s a strapping 15 year-old giant now though, so no harm done, except for my premature grey hair! 🙂

      How can you drink green tea? I tried it once – it was gross! 🙂

  5. Oh I was *this close* to naming salad, especially Greek salad! *faints* yum!

  6. Salad? Really? You go girl!
    I have never thought of tea as strong and dark. *shudder*
    What a waste of the ambulance uniforms if you were too worked up to enjoy them?
