A very big thank you to Cuddle Fairy who nominated me for this award. This is my first award, so I'm really excited and grateful!

I was asked to answer these questions, so here goes!

1.  What inspired you to start blogging?

Being a mum. I finally started to write after I had Dorothy. I had read a few blogs beforehand, and thought I would just go for it and share my experiences of parenting. Especially children with a 10 year age gap!

2.  What’s your favourite thing about blogging?

My favourite thing is meeting new people! I've only been blogging a few months, but I've already met so many wonderful people. There is a great support network for bloggers.

3.  What’s your favourite song?

My favourite song of all time is Jackie Wilson's '(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher.'
It always makes me smile and is two of my favourite films; The Concierge and Ghostbusters 2 :)

4.  What’s your number 1 travel essential?

My number 1 travel essential is a phone, just in case Mikey has an allergic reaction.

5.  What’s your favourite quote?

My favourite quote is, "It'll be worth it in the end." This is a piece of advice my mum used to give me when I was working and studying when Mikey was a baby. It really helped when I was ready to give up.

6.  What’s your favourite blog post that you have written?  

I would have to say that my favourite blog post to write was a thank you to my husband. It was great to put into words how I feel about him :)

7.  Where’s your favourite place to shop & why?

My favourite place to shop is New Look. I can always find a great bargain in there and when my sister and I go together, we always mess around and have a laugh!

8.  What’s your favourite fashion item?

My favourite fashion item is a pair of Converse trainers. They are so comfy, come in a variety of colour/designs and they look pretty cool too!

9.  Tell us something we will be surprised to learn!

I am actually quite an intelligent person, but if you ask my family, they would all agree (especially my husband, my mum and my siblings) that I don't seem it!
I am one of those people that do/say something before engaging my brain!

10. If you won £1,000,000 what’s the first thing you would do?

Tell my husband! I would then share it with the family :)

11. Give one piece of parenting advice to fellow mums.

Go with your gut instinct. You know in your own mind what's right or wrong for your child/ren.
Also, despite the wealth of books out there about babies, they haven't read the books!
