All About Me!

All About Me Meme.

I have been tagged by the lovely My Mills Baby in this meme - All About Me!
I haven't done one of these for ages so I was looking forward to giving this a go.
10 questions, so can't be too hard, can it?????

1. First off, tell us your name.......

I can do this one! Emma Louise Wright. I used to be a Thomson and sometimes forget that I am not anymore, even though I have been married for 9 years. Still not changed my name on Facebook though, I really must get round to that!

2. I live at home with........

Well the short version is - there is me, him, them and the others!
The slightly longer version is my hubby, Martin or Mr W as he is known on here. We have been married 9 years in the May just gone (I keep reminding him it is 10 years next year - have got my eye on an eternity ring!) and been together a lot longer. Then there is Megan, my gorgeous girl who is 8! And my cheeky monkey, Ben who is 4! Jake, our getting on a bit, ginger cat also has his place here, along with a delinquent rabbit, Betsey, who is actually a boy! We live, happily, in our small, cramped full of toys house. But hopefully that might all be changing soon as we are really hoping to get an extension built next year....fingers crossed.....

3. My favourite thing to do is.........

Now that's quite hard.....there are lots of things I like to do, reading, watching the soaps, messing around on social media, eating chocolate, but my favourite thing is probably to spend time with Megan and Ben. They are growing up so fast now that it is lovely to just take time out to be with them, playing, going to the park, having a walk, bike riding, just being with them really.


4.  My favourite thing to eat is.......

Pretty much anything!!! Apart from fish. I love food and cooking, and trying out new recipes. I love Greek food, Greek salads, fried saganaki, stuffed vineleaves, chicken souvalaki, lamb kleftiko, beef stiffado and the gorgeous oven roasted potatoes they do.

5.  When I get cross I.......

Depends on who it is with. With Mr W, I like to have the last word and can be very cool and sartastic. If it is with the children, I e=tend to go into teacher mode, the teacher voice comes out and I repeat whatever it is S-L-O-W-L-Y. If that doesn't work, I *may* shout!

6. Sometimes I worry about........

Everything! I am the worlds worse worrier. I worry about silly things and things I have no control over. I often have to make a conscious effort to not think about things or worry about them.
But mainly I worry about Megan and Ben, the world in which they are growing up into, and worry that I am doing a good job of equipping them for real life so they will become happy, confident adults.

7.  My favourite book is......

As I love reading, it is so hard to pick! I do however love the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich. They do make me laugh out loud and I re read them again and again.

8. My favourite toy is......(Keep it clean now!)

Probably my phone. It is an Android HTC sensation XL and I love the fact that I can do everything on it. I have apps for my blog, facebook, twitter, my facebook page and lots more.
I would love an IPad though, that would be my best toy ever!

9.  I dislike.......

Ironing and hardly ever do any. Unless I really have to. And then I do it as quick as possible.
I also dislike being unprepared, I hate not knowing what is happening. I am a big planner and love to be in control!

10. When I grow up I want to be........

That's hard! I just want to be happy and do the best possible job I can of bringing up Megan and Ben so they are happy too. I wouldn't mind being rich too, so winning the lottery would be fab!

Now it's your turn to give us the lowdown on you!!!
