My partner in crime at Scrapbooking at Memory Lane, Sam Dorn, has tagged me. OK...
The rules for this particular tagging are as follows: Remove the blog name in the top spot from the following list and bump everyone up one place. Then add yourself to the bottom slot.
Here are the questions:
What were you doing 10 years ago?
Let me think… 10 years is a long time. I had just got a job as a Human Resources Manager. It was a huge promotion and into a field that I didn’t really know much about, having been an occupational health & safety professional up until then. I remember feeling very challenged and very busy. I was also in a new relationship (that didn’t last) and doing lots of partying.
What were you doing 1 year ago?
This time last year I was trying to get pregnant. I was on a year's long service leave from my very busy job as a Human Resources Manager (yes, pretty much the same one as above, but in its final incarnation after zillions of restructures - you know how it is!). My long service leave was about to end and about this time last year I was meeting with my old boss to discuss going back to work. Following that meeting, I resigned!
Five snacks that you enjoy:
Ice cream (I thought it was a craving during pregnancy but I still eat way too much!)
Marzipan (but only from Niederegger in Luebeck, Germany)
Biscuits dunked in coffee (any biscuits, I’m not fussy when it comes to sugar)
Donuts (the more sugar, the better)
Tasty Toasters (the token healthy snack)
Five songs to which you KNOW all the lyrics :
Any song from the Rocky Horror Picture Show, lol! It drives my husband nuts to watch that movie with me :)
Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:
Move into a house with a studio for my scrapping, lots of light, and space to set up a classroom so I could teach from home.
Invest for my son’s future education
Leave work and scrap my little heart out while being a stay-at-home mum
Go back to uni and, this time, study something creative like interior design or graphic design instead of something “sensible”
Visit my sister and her family every six months
Five bad habits:
I get engrossed in what I’m doing and forget the time
I walk around the house doing stuff while I’m on the ‘phone (which is just rude)
I leave all the lights on
I forget to turn the security alarm off when I come home (not good when you’re trying to sneak in with a sleeping baby)
Five things you like doing:
Coffee with friends
Making the baby laugh
Five things you would never wear, buy, or get again:
Stretch jeans (Ok in the 80s when I was 15; not OK now I'm 40)
Two in one shampoo and conditioner
Pot plants (love 'em, but manage to kill every single one I own)
I would never get so bogged down in a stressful job that I couldn't see anything good about life anymore.
Five Favourite toys:
At the moment… any toy that will distract Jamie and keep him from spitting the dummy, lol!
The widescreen plasma TV we got for Christmas
My CD player or the car radio – up loud!
Jak, my Maltese
