I’ve been in a bit of a blogging funk recently and admittedly quickly running out of ideas. However, I saw this great post by the lovely Sare over at Diary of a Teacherholic, and despite the fact that it is supposed to be part of a tagged post, I thought I would join in and answer the same questions myself… After all, who doesn’t enjoy talking about themselves first thing in the morning?
1. If you could go back in time and change one decision you’ve made, what would it be?
There are lots of decisions I wish I could go back and change, but all of those decisions have led to this point in my life, which I am happy with, so given the opportunity I would probably do everything in the same way. However, the decision to start smoking is one I have always regretted – I’ve wasted thousands of pounds and now have the lung capacity of a small asthmatic child.
2. What do you wish you had more time for?
If it was sixth months ago, I would have said time to live – work had pretty much taken over the majority of my life at that point – but now I am in the fortunate position that in less than two weeks I will have indeed have the time to do just that, for a little while at least. I have plans and goals, and I couldn’t be more excited!
3. What’s your guilty pleasure?
Made in Chelsea and all of the Real Housewives shows. Rich people attending parties, throwing tables and arguing with each other about nothing while travelling to beautiful places. Fabulous.
4. What’s your favourite smell?
Freshly laundered clothes and linens straight from the washing line.
5. Where do you want to be five years from now?
Is it too cliche to say happy? After the enormous changes I’ve made over the last six months, I honestly couldn’t think about where I would want to be and what I would be doing, but as long as I am happy doing it then that’s fine with me! (It’s ok, you can stop vomiting at the sentiment now…)
6. If they would make a movie of your life, who would play you?
I was once told that if you drink ten pints and squint a bit then I bear a very slight resemblance to Julia Stiles. Personally, I think they were trying to avoid hurting Rosie Huntington-Whitely’s feelings as I’m blatantly her doppelgänger. Hmm, maybe not. However, I think the most obvious choice to play me in a film would be Sally Lindsay from Coronation Street – she’s northern, got curves and tells it like it is. And she looks like she enjoys a laugh.
7. What would be your ultimate job?
There are so many… in a fantasy world chief chocolate tester for Ferrero Rocher, food critic or spa tester would certainly be high on the list. Secretly, I’ve always wanted to be a backing dancer, but have the coordination skills of a frog-in-a-blender. However, in the real world I’d love to be a writer or a photographer – I adore doing both.
8. Which goal should definitely be on your bucket list?
To be living a life that I don’t need to take a vacation from.
9. What have you wanted to do for a long time, but keep procrastinating about?
Start running again. I got into it a few years ago and managed to get much fitter and built up my stamina. However, I’ve let it slip over the last year and in an effort to motivate myself I have signed myself up for the Birmingham half marathon in October.
10. Which achievement are you most proud of?
Getting to this point in my life by myself. Of course, I’ve received support from those around me, but I’ve worked hard to ensure that I am in a place that I feel happy and safe.
11. What would the autobiography of your life be called?
Oh Well, She Tried…
What about you guys? Can you answer these questions?

Great questions and answers! I may give this a try, if I can find the energy to come up with answers today 🙂
Thanks my lovely! Let me know when you’ve done it – I’d love to see your answers!
Great post idea. I might do one. Although no surprises that a lot of your answers are similar too mine. Well maybe except the curvy northerner bird of course. Haha
Really? Well that’s a huge surprise – you’ve never thought the same things as me before 😉
I dunno, you’d look hot in a long blonde wig…
Haha. Like a young Jessica Lange. Love her just now in American Horror Story
I’m going to start watching it now its on Netflix…
Oh oh oh u realllllly should!
I’ve promised the bloke I’m going to watch Vampire Diaries too (although I don’t want to because Twilight made me want to punch myself repeatedly in the face, but he’s assured me that it’s not the same…). I’ll let you ink when I’ve started watching it – looks like it’s going to be an interesting summer!
Did you see Jessica Lange snub that bint from Glee on the red carpet?
Oh I’ve not saw her do that. I’ve decided I’m gonna try and watch all her old movies though!
Check it out on YouTube, it’s hilarious but I also feel a bit mortified on her behalf!
Thanks for sharing your answer to these! I’m always interested to see how people answer these types of questions and I’m usually playing along in my head with my own answers. I’m in a bit of a funk myself here.
It looks like you will have some time to get your groove back. 🙂
Thanks Kat! I needed something like this to try and get my blog on again… I had a lot of fun doing it!
Good luck training for the half Suzie – I like signing up for an autumn race to keep motivated too!
Thanks Stephen! I’ll certainly keep you posted! Why race are you planning on doing?
The Toronto 1/2 in October – it’s a nice one, kilometres 3 through 8 are a gradual, pleasant downhill slope!
Ooh that’s what you need! Ours seems to be all uphill! I’m not looking forward to it!
These questions are great! I love feeling like I’m getting to know a bit more about you. I may have ago at them myself soon.
Thanks Stacey – these question were set for Sare – follow the link to her blog and check it out! I had a blast doing them, give them a go!

Here are my questions and answers – thanks for the prompt! http://steve-says.net/2015/07/08/me-myself-i/
I loved these Steve – this will become more of a regular thing too!
Stop putting off that running! October will be here before you know it! Lets do this!!!
Haha I know I know! Scouts honour I will start this weekend. I wasn’t ever a scout, but I’m ignoring that…
I need to study up for a little while before I take this test… 🙂
Haha! You always make me smile Austin! Thanks so much for all the Twitter love too!
You are welcome. 🙂
Love your positive attitude. You look forward far more than back, a lesson for many of us.
Thanks so much my lovely!

To be living a life I don’t need to take a vacation from – yes yes yes! Great post 🙂
I saw that quote on Facebook a little while ago and have sort of adopted it as a personal mantra! Thanks very much – I’m glad you liked it!
