The fabulous Nova tagged me for a MeMe ... which is great fun because don't we all love to write about ourselves!!!

What is your current obsession?

my baby boy ... he's nearly 5 months old and he's just so squidgy and smiley and delicious

What is your weirdest obsession?

storage solutions ... I can spend hours measuring up and shopping around for just the right container! Yet, I never seem to get it perfect ...

What are you wearing today?

long patchwork skirt, red top, orange cardy, pink froggy slippers (is it just me or does that question sound a bit creepy???)

If you could change 1 thing about yourself, what would you change?

my 'black craft thumb' when it comes to anything involving handwork. I had to make a walnut boat at a Steiner mums meeting the other week ... I was mortified!

What would you eat for your last meal?

Spicy bean nachos with tonnes of cheese, quacamole and sour cream, with a couple of majitos, followed by lemon tart and really good vanilla icecream, and several cups of decent coffee.

What’s the last thing you bought?

a birthday present for a 3 year old friend of Munchkin's - oh and some really great cane baskets for the top of the pantry (see question 2)

What are you listening/watching right now?

listening to hubby watching some violent movie, and my baby feeding at the breast

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?

The luxury lake spa in Rotorua ... thermal spas, in rocks, right on the lakes edge. With a mojito. And some lemon tart.

Which language do you want to learn?


What do you love most about where you currently live?

I love that the weather is pretty much get out-side-able (given appropriate waterproof clothing) 365 days of the year, 24 bours a day. I went for a walk just about every single day of my pregnancy ... and never missed one because of the weather.

What is your favorite colour?

Waldorf kindergarten pink.

How many draft posts are sitting on your blogs dashboard?

4! One on storytimes, one on circle time for rainy days, one on protecting babys senses, one on baking bread with children.

What were you doing ten years ago?

Falling in love with the man who is now my husband

Describe your personal style?

I like to think earth mother, but my brother calls it mother hubbard

If you had $300 now, what would you spend it on?

Clothes ... clearly if my brother is right I need to!

What are you going to do after this?

Go to bed - alone as I think Hubby's still watching that movie.

What are your favourite films?

Princess Bride ... its been a long time since I've seen a movie actually. The last one I saw was about some MIT students who counted cards in Blackjack and took on the casinos - can't remember the name of it but it was really good.

What inspires you?

Ideas. I know its cliched, but its why I love blogging .. I just love new ideas and concepts.

What makes you follow a blog?

See above.

What is your favourite FO and why?

What's an FO???

Your proudest moment?

Quitting my job rather than putting Munchkin into care.

Your biggest weakness?

Staying up late blogging!

I'm not going to tag anyone, but let me know if you do it or have done it so I can pop over and visit!
