We were inspired by Maggy right from the start and have regular Twitter chat, which mostly turns to food. Being half Austrian, half Spanish must give Maggy quite a good culinary combination. Look out for her recipes closer to Christmas
Never satisfied with the 'About Me' of any blog, and whilst Maggy's About is actually a good read, we had to ask her a few questions to feel a bit closer to this craft sister of ours...
On waking the first 3 things I do are….Turn on the Laptop (does this mean I am classed a “work a holic”?!)
Make the Kids breakfast
Make a cup of tea
If I had a superpower it would be….Magic (then I could do everything – incl. magicing the laundry away, magic perfect cakes and magic a clean and tidy living room..)
If I could trade places for a day with someone it would be…A shepherd up in the Austrian Alps on a sunny day (one day only, right?) – then I would enjoy the stunning few, enjoy the sunshine on my face, hear the bees and enjoy a picnic…
If someone wrote a story about me the title would be…What happens when you try something new
When I was seven years old……I always had scabby knees, my socks on back to front and one of my pig tails undone. I was rubbish at reading, but always won the maths quizzes.
If you open my fridge you will see….Uhm a bit of a mess? Like the rest of my house?! (don’t worry, I do *clean* the fridge though.. just has lots of stuff in it)
My favourite view is…Is my view.. hehehe... I do love mountain scenery (see above)
The 3 things I will tell my children are…Always be nice and help others
Work hard and do your best
The song or musical piece for the theme tune of my life is…Strict Machine, by Black Cherry (maybe I am harsh on myself?)
I used to be…A management consultant, but bored stiff
My biggest guilty pleasures are…Chocolate
Twitter & Facebook
My wardrobe is…Untidy (see above re fridge)
Never have I ever…Bungee jumped or flown in a helicopter
My kids taught me……to not always do things my way (gosh, that is so hard though)
Life is like a…The weather? Unpredictable? Always changing with sunny days and rainy spells?
My earliest memory is….Dragging home some stray (manky) kittens and asking if we could keep them (no), helping my brothers throw all our toys out of the bedroom window
My underwear drawer …Is a mess (see wardrobe and fridge… no, no underwear IN the fridge)
I feel like running for the hills when….The house needs hovering. My husband or the cleaner does that (yes, so middle class, I know)
On my teenage bedroom wall there was…A Paul Klee poster
My ideal partner would have the mind of / skills of / body of…Hehehe what can I say but that of my husband…
Thank you Maggy. Your seven year old self sounds a bit like me with scabby knees and pigtails undone, and I'm quite impressed with your teenage taste for Paul Klee posters. I can also relate to what your kids have taught you, but yes, it is hard isn't it! Look forward to trying some of your Christmas crafts & recipes x
