I was tagged by Lianne from Mrs Mummy Harris to take part in The October Tag. Do go check her blog out.

Basically this tag is just about me answering some great questions so you can get to know me better!

The October Tag

NAME?

Jo Boyne

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR?

Red. I can’t remember a time when it wasn’t red.

WHAT DID YOU DO TODAY?

On Mondays I spend the day with Elizabeth. We went to see my Mum and Auntie, and Elizabeth showed off to them. Then we came home, she had a nap. We cuddled and played a little when she woke back up. Her current favourites are the Happy land figures, she loves her castle and house.

WHERE ARE YOU CURRENTLY?

Sat at our dining room table on my laptop opposite my gorgeous other half. As he does his marking.

WHAT IS YOUR STAR SIGN?

Capricorn. Apparently that makes me ambitious, practical, wise, patient, cautious, pessimistic and stubborn.

CAKE OR ICE CREAM?

Cake cake cake!

FROZEN OR MOANA?

Oooh, tough one. I would say Moana, as she is a kick ass heroine. And The Rock as Maui is a genius bit of casting! Though the music in both is just a-may-zing!

A NIGHT IN OR A NIGHT OUT?

A night out. I love the getting dressed up and doing something different. It’s a pretty rare thing these days.

HOME COOKED MEAL OR TAKEAWAY?

Take away – make mine an Indian.

PINEAPPLE ON PIZZA OR NO PINEAPPLE ON PIZZA?

Pineapple? Pizza? (said in the style of Peter Kay…)

Just say No.

Showing my age there.

BOOKS OR FILMS?

Again, this is hard. I love a good read, but its also great to see a new film, especially one I’ve waited for.

AUTUMN OR SPRING?

Autumn. I love the run up to Christmas. Plus, being a crafter/sewist, all my projects are there and waiting to be done. I get really excited at what I’m going to create!

FLOWERS OR CHOCOLATES?

Chocolate. Especially if it is wrapped around marzipan….mmm.

FULL FAT OR DIET COKE?

Diet. Though I realise it is really not good for me, I only drink diet.

PHONE OR LAPTOP?

A bit of both. Though my emails can only go from my laptop for some reason, so forgive me if you contact me and I can’t get back right away!

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FAVOURITE TV SERIES?

I have recently absolutely adored Westworld. I have loved Game of Thrones but think it has to reach a finish now, its all got a bit same-same. And for light relief Taskmaster on Dave is just the funniest thing EVER!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO IN OCTOBER?

Sew Halloween Outfits. Collect conkers and make garlands. Make some easy Halloween crafts

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FOOD TO CRAVE?

The Co-Op do some great own brand salt and vinegar crisps, which are so good. I have to have them once a week.

DO YOU HAVE ANY PIERCINGS OR TATTOOS?

My ears are pierced, and that is it.

ARE YOU AN INTROVERT OR EXTROVERT?

Introvert, unless you know me. Or, I’m on stage.

WHAT IS YOUR ALL TIME FAVOURITE HALLOWEEN FILM?

I’m not into horror films. I’ve still never seen Hocus Pocus! But I do like “The Ring”.

NAME YOUR TOP 3 FAVOURITE ARTISTS/BANDS.

George Michael, ABBA, and Earth Wind & Fire.

HAVE YOU GOT ANY PLANS FOR HALLOWEEN?

No. Elizabeth has firmly stated that she doesn’t like pumpkins. She got really scared at Sea Life Manchester, and now doesn’t want pumpkins, so I won’t buy one just in case. I will get some sweets for trick or treaters and maybe just do a few little decorations in the house, but she is too little right now to go out. She has a costume though for Halloween.

DO YOU HAVE ANY FEARS?

That I will not be around to see Elizabeth grow up. Morbid thought, but I’m nearly 47. I will be 60 when she is 16. It does worry me.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN LIFE AFTER LOVE?

(One of my favourite karaoke tunes, love that crazy reverb)

Yes, I met my gorgeous man and Elizabeth’s Daddy when I was in my early 40s. I’d been in love several times before and been in two 8-year long relationships. I thought it was the end of the world each time I split up. I thought that I would maybe never meet the right man and have children. There is always hope ladies!

DO YOU HAVE ANY CHILDREN? (OR ANIMALS YOU TREAT AS YOUR BABIES)

I have Elizabeth who is almost 3. And two 12 year old cats called Joy and Leo, who are shocked at fining themselves living with a toddler!

WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR YOUR FUTURE?

To live a long and happy life and watch my little girl grow up to be happy.

BE HONEST, WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?

I took a break from my life career of dentistry a year ago. I’d got a bit disillusioned with the corporate workplace. I just wanted a place where I could share my experiences and knowledge, and find a few answers to what I should do next.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT SO FAR?

Elizabeth.

WHAT ARE YOUR AMBITIONS WITH YOUR BLOG?

To be a name that people know and trust. To get some enjoyment out of creating. So far I am really enjoying it.

IF THERE IS ONE THING YOU’D LIKE TO CHANGE ABOUT YOUR BLOG WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I’m thinking of getting a paid theme to get my blog looking better. It looks ok, but I’m sure it could look better. Bit like me. LOL.

HAVE YOU ACHIEVED ANY BLOG GOALS YOU SET OUT TO DO THIS YEAR?

I actually just wanted to stay consistently posting con tent I was happy with. And I’ve done that by posting about areas where I have knowledge and experience. I’m really happy with what I’ve done so far.

WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE IN 10 YEARS’ TIME?

I am sure that I will want to go back into my dental career, but not sure how right now. I would love to still be blogging a bit.

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM HOLIDAY?

Disney, for Elizabeth. Cannot wait. Also maybe a world trip at some point. Ambitious much?

IF YOU HAD AN ENTIRE DAY TO YOURSELF WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

Sew. And sleep. In equal quantities.

    your daughter’s halloween outfit is great – I love crafting over the autumn. I’m making felt poppies at the moment – but my favourite season is Spring – all the flowers bursting out. I’m not enjoying the cold weather in Manchester at the moment. love Bec (waving from Eccles)
