Let the Tagging begin...

Ok, here goes with the answers. I was tagged by Mother's Pride, and I'm sorry that it has taken me so long to get this Post together:

1. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. The player then tags 5 people, goes to their Blogs and leaves them a comment telling them they've been tagged and asking them to read their Blog. (phew)

WHAT WERE YOU DOING 10 YEARS AGO?

I was living in Cambridge. Son was 18 and Daughter was 16. They were doing A Levels and GCSEs respectively. I was a self-employed Designer/Writer, with some Teaching thrown in (in my spare time!). We lived overlooking the Botanical Gardens and had 2 cats.

5 SNACKS I ENJOY.

Actually I don't like Snacks, but if forced:
Pistachio Nuts, Pecans and Almonds.
Basil and Black Olive Twists (from T***o) - great with a glass of wine.
Nothing else.

THINGS I WOULD DO IF I WERE A BILLIONAIRE.

Give all my Family and Friends what they need to relieve all financial worries.
Then take everyone away on a wonderful holiday.
Give a lot of it away to Charities that help Children all over the World.
Buy a house in France.
Relax!

FIVE JOBS THAT I HAVE HAD.

Au Pair. Bank Clerk. Copywriter. Designer (Graphics,Interiors and Gardens), Full time Mother.

THREE OF MY BAD HABITS. (Only Three?)

I Worry. I Panic. I'm hopeless with new Machines.

FIVE PLACES I HAVE LIVED.

Essex. London. Gloucestershire. Cambridge. Hove Actually.

FIVE PEOPLE I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT.

Donna
Dusty Spider
ExpatMum
Family Affairs
Working Mum on the Verge

That's all Folks.. and I hope you think it was worth the effort.
Now I've got to bustle over to all those lovely Blogs and give them the good news...

Thanks for the tag. I've already done this one, so pop over and read it if you want to know more about me!
How lovely to live near Botanical Gardens!

Mean Mom said...

This was very interesting. I can't help but be relieved that I didn't get this tag. I've been so boring. I haven't even had 5 jobs, I don't think, or even lived in 5 different places! You don't like snacks? Oooh! Now I feel guilty!

Hi Donna, don't worry about it, take your time (I did!) And I just love those Senior Moments! M :-)

Hi G.I.M - I hadn't thought of that, and you're right, I probably couldn't answer those for most of my friends either! Good point. M xx

Hi Working Mum - sorry to have done it to you - I'll pop over and read your answers. M xx

Hold it, Mean Mom, I may be heading your way with this one as "Working Mum" has already done it! M :-)

the mother of this lot said...

Award over here for you Margot. I think yours is in the 'Friend' section on the second floor.

Thank you so much The Mother, you certainly are a prolific giver of Awards. It's so much fun, isn't it? M xx PS Will be watching your Blog for news of TONIGHT!

Expatmum said...

Thanks for the lovely award and the tag, which I will start thinking about forthwith and write up when I get home. Enjoying Florida, although the sun is fierce and we are all pale, so having to be very careful. Loving the warmer weather!

Milla said...

Where in Gloucestershire she wonders nosily. Hmmm. With you on the "snacks" (thank God or would be as porky as a porker), bad habits, well, those are 3 of mine, but I have about another 3000 which I'll keep quiet about. Oh, and can I be your friend? Could do with an end to financial worries.

A Mother's Place is in the Wrong said...

Hi Expatmum, so pleased you are enjoying the warmth. Look forward to your answers whenever! M xx

Hi Milla, actually near Hartpury, a tiny hamlet called Orridge Street! Don't get me started on bad habits - though some of them I actually think are good - perversely! M :) PS. No problem - money coming your way as soon as it gets to me. xx
