The fabulous Tara from Sticky Fingers decided to 'thank' everyone that had given her a blog award by giving them the The Blame Tara Meme to complete. I like a good meme. She is going to see how far it will spread throughout the blogging world and beyond. I have also been tagged by the lovely Clare at Clareybabbling. Be sure to pay them a visit!
The rules, such as they are, quite frankly you make it up as you go along:
Thank Tara - check
Complete the meme - see below
Pass on to some other brilliant blogs - see even further below
OK off we go!
1. Who is the hottest movie star?
I have had crushes on movie stars (and the like) since I was a little girl. Here they are in chronological (you will be able to guess my age from this) order:
Robert Downey Jr
2. Apart from your house and your car, what's the most expensive item you've ever bought?
My engagement ring. This is a long story that I will save for its very own blog post. Suffice to say it was also the most expensive item my husband has ever bought too!
3. What's your most treasured memory?
The day I met Andy was pretty special, as was our wedding. I wouldn't say that I treasure the memories of the births of my children, but I can certainly remember the second I fell head over heels in love with them.
4. What was the best gift you ever received as a child?
This answer is inspired by/copied from the wonderful Gaelikaa, in her answer to question 4 she said Enid Blyton books. I think this is the same for me. I have always loved reading and devoured all of Enid's books. I particularly liked the Mallory Towers books, the Castle of Adventure series and The Secret Island series. I was over the moon to complete my Famous Five collection too. A few years ago I re-read all of the Mallory Towers and St Clares books. Still great reads!
5. What's the biggest mistake you've made?
Have you got all day? The general theme of all my mistakes has been poor choice of friends. I guess in the past I must have been too trusting, naive and easily led. I think that's all behind me now. You lot are lovely people, aren't you?
6. 4 words to describe yourself.
I am a chocoholic!
7. What was your highlight or lowlight of 2008?
My highlight is definitely having Presley, the lowlight would probably be the way I was treated by the hopsital when I was pregnant and the trauma of the birth itself. All worth it though :-)
8. Favourite film?
This is a difficult question. Off the top of my head: Moulin Rouge.
9. Tell me one thing I don't know about you.
I HATE moths. Oh, you mean a proper secret?
10. If you were a comic book/strip or cartoon character, who would you be?
I enjoyed doing that.
I hope the following splendid bloggers will also take up the challenge!
Of course, lovely reader, if you would like to take up the challenge and I haven't tagged you, please feel free to join in and you can blame Tara too.
