All About Me

I love reading blogs and especially like to read about the personalities behind a blog. Kate from Family Fever recently revealed a few things about herself in an 'All about me' post. Started by a blogger inspired by a booklet sent home from school with her daughter asking all about her. Although it may not seem like it I am quite a private person and tend to keep a lot to myself so when Kate tagged me to join in I thought why not let people get to know me a bit better...

First things first- your name and what do you do?
My name is Carly, I work part-time in a supermarket (not very exciting, I know. The rest of my time is spent looking after the little ones and of course blogging.

I live at home with...
My partner Andy and our two children Gracie (2) and Zachary (1).

My Favourite thing to do is...
This is a hard one. I love to spend time with my little family. Especially days out where we get to get away from everything and just have fun! When I'm not in mum mode (which is very rare) I love to read books, blog and I've even taken up knitting! (if knitting squares counts).

My Favourite thing to eat is...
Depends what mood I'm in but I'm a big pizza lover! I also have a huge soft spot for homemade banoffee pie. mmm...

When I get cross I...
CRY! I very rarely let myself get that angry but there have been many a times where I've wanted to shout and scream and then instead I find myself crying. I've never been one to be able to stick up for myself!

Sometimes I worry because...
I know I can't protect my kids from everything that will hurt them. This is probably something that worries most parents but I feel like I'm just not good enough for them, like they deserve so much more than I can offer. (Of course seeing the smiles on their faces when they see me and the daily hugs and cuddles I get reassure me daily)

My Favourite Book is...
Oh there are so many! Twilight is an old favourite as is The Hunger Games, The Hunger Games introduced me to Dystopian fiction and I absolutely love the Divergent series by Veronica Roth and the Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver. 

My Favourite Toy is...
My Sodastream. Mainly because it was something my mum never let me have as a kid so I rebelled as an adult and bought one! I'm so Rock N Roll ;)

I dislike...
spiders, cold weather, People asking when we are going to get married! (we can't escape any party or occasion without someone asking when Andy will pop the question)and last but not least, scary films! As a kid I watched many horror films but now I am so jumpy and am guaranteed horrible nightmares from anything remotely scary.

When I grow up I want to be...
I am so indecisive about the future. I have qualifications in Travel & Tourism and although I don't see myself working in the industry, I would love a job that would involve travel. Whether it be abroard or across the UK, I would love a job that lets me see different things every day. Blogging is also important to me and has made me realise I like to write. It's just knowing what to write about. I'd love to go into journalism but hey, lets just see what happens. I'm not one for making plans!

The idea of this was to tag other bloggers but as I am so late to the party everyone seems to have already joined in!
