Firstly I would like to thank Eimear from Chirps From A Little Red Hen and Rachael from Rachsbeautique for tagging me in "10 Things you didn't know about me".
All you have to do is add the 10 Things image from the top of this post, link back to me and answer the following 10 questions. Then if you wish to do so, compile 10 questions of your own and tag 10 of your fellow bloggers to do the same.
Here they are:
Questions from Chirps From A Little Red Hen
1. What's your favourite room in your home?
We live in a teeny tiny cottage with 5 rooms in total. My favourite room is probably our bedroom. It’s the upstairs section of the cottage and is long but not very high. If you stretch your hands out you can touch the sloping ceiling at either side! The ceiling is so low that we cannot fit a wardrobe in there. In saying all of that I just love how cosy it is.
2. What makes a perfect sandwich?
Cheese. I have to have cheese in my sandwich otherwise it just doesn’t have the same appeal!
3. What is your favourite thing to do on a rainy day?
Curl up in front of the fire and watch the rain fall outside.
4. If you were only able to wear one item of makeup what would it be?
It would be a tossup between mascara or eyebrow product.
5. Camping? Glamping? Self-Catering? Hotel? What would your choice be on a holiday?
Hotel without question. I travelled through Australia in a campervan and I have now developed a hate for any sort of camping!
6. What are your favourite flowers?
Lavender. The bridesmaids at my wedding had bouquets of lavender and they looked amazing and smelt just as good.
7. If you won a lotto of €1 Million what would be the first thing you would do?
Cry! I would ring the bank to pay off our mortgage or any other debt/loan and then go on a fabulous holiday with my husband and son before coming home to decide what to do with our winnings!
8. What's your favourite thing to do in Summer?
Getting out in the fresh air. I am lucky to have grown up in the country and to now still live in the countryside and I just love the smell of the fresh country air. It's so good for the mind to get out too.
9. What's your favourite thing to do to relax?
I love to watch some of my guilty pleasures on TV with a glass of wine or cup of tea. It's nothing too crazy but I enjoy it!
10. Your perfect breakfast?
Poached Eggs, brown toast and a beautiful cup of Barry's tea!
Questions from Rachs Beautique
Your questions are:
1. What is your biggest blog related peeve?
I don't know really, nothing so far!
2. What's your nickname and how did you get it?
Dee. My name is Denise so the nickname is not very original but it suits me. When I was in primary school everyone used to call me Denny or Dinny and I hated it. I used to go home from school crying because I hated it so much. I think the main reason was because at the time there was a character called Dinny in the Irish tv program Glenroe and he was an elderly man, I hated being associated with it! It's funny because there is now a character in home and Away called Denny!
3. Favourite Movie?
Mickeybo and Me. I just adore that film and watch it all the time.
4. What blogger do you secretly want to be friends with?
Ha ha that’s a good question. Probably Pippa O'Connor because she is just fab and seems to down to earth. I love her style and taste too.
5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
I would probably still live here in Ireland because I am a bit of a home bird although I wouldn’t mind living in New York or Los Angeles for a year.
6. Favourite beauty tool/product?
Nivea Essential Care Lip balm, the blue one. I freak out if I don’t have one with me at all times. I'm actually addicted, so much so that even my husband's 4 year old niece comments on it!!
7. How tall are you?
8. Favourite junk food?
This has to be divided up between sweet and savoury because I just couldn’t choose!
Savoury: Pizza and garlic cheese chips (Soooooo not good for the waist line)
Sweet: Tesco Midget Gems
9. Favourite song?
I have lots of them but I particularly love our wedding song: "You Couldn’t Have Come At A Better Time" by Luka Bloom
10. Last romantic gesture from partner, boyfriend, spouse, or someone special?
My wonderful husband made me breakfast in bed last Saturday and it was the loveliest surprise! He told me that he would bring me up a cup of tea and instead arrived with tea and breakfast.
Until the next time, always remember to be:
