I was invited to take part in an Anything But Books Tag Post by the lovely Author Shelley Wilson, who is not only a most fabulous author but a fantastic motivational writer too!

Seeing as I am sat here coughing and snivvling at home, I figured now is a good a time as any, to complete these cool questions!

Q1. Name a cartoon that you love

There are so many that I love, being a big kid… you surely know that about me already! 😉 But one of my all-time favourites has to be Tom and Jerry. I remember my Pops recording episodes for my brother and me to watch on repeat! Simple fun which I think can still be accessed today!


Q2. What is your favourite song right now

I have to say that for the last few years, recent music has passed me by. I have been stuck in my bubble of favourite music from the 80’s and 90’s, to be honest. But now Lil Princess is getting older, she is introducing me to much more of the new music than I had access to. As a result, I am really enjoying the new stream of latino influenced songs that are out right now. I love the beat and sensuous feel of the music, and even though I don’t understand the words, my body and soul ‘feel’ it… do you get me? As a result, one of the songs I could listen to on repeat at the moment is Enrique Iglesias and Subeme La Radio!

Q3. What could you do for hours that isn’t reading

As Shelley mentioned, I could definitely people watch for hours, or find a great series I wanted to see, and binge-watch the whole thing! But as I have a job, and kids, and husband, and pets, the opportunities for either are few and far between!

Q4. What is something that you love to do that your followers would be surprised by

Sit quietly and alone.

I say this as I am quite ‘vocal’ on my blog, and I appear to be this great extrovert. And I am. But there are times when I want to be by myself, serene in my own silence. Honestly, I don’t just love hearing my voice all the time, I promise!

Q5. What is your favourite, unnecessarily specific thing to learn about

Old Indian traditions and customs and their roots. There are so many things we are expected to do, within our culture, and I love finding out the reasoning behind why we still fulfil those expectations.

Q6. What is something unusual you know how to do

I can count banknotes – really fast! A remnant of my banking cashier days! Not that I have many notes to count nowadays!

Q7. Name something that you’ve made in the last year

Hmm… aside from food that I make every day, I think I can safely say I have made progress in my career! As a teacher, I am being stretched, and I have been given new responsibilities, and also with the role of Governor tagged on, there is a sense of accomplishment I am feeling (along with the exhaustion that accompanies it!)

Q8. What is your most recent personal project

I think my self-imposed #RiNoWriMo in August was my biggest and most recent personal project. I have a book inside me that has been crying to get out for the last 17 years. It has taken this long for me to focus and take the first 13,000 words into something more in the region of 70,000! It still isn’t finished but I hope that in the new year I will create time to finish this and maybe I’ll have a novel on my hands sometime next year!



Q10. Tell us something that’s your favourite, but make it oddly specific

As I have grown older, I have become a little more discerning about the tea I drink. As a result, if I am having a brew, my favourite teabags to use are Punjana. I love the taste and the fact that they are created from tea leaves from both India and Kenya, countries that feature heavily on my family history, just add to the reason why I think they are the best!Image result for punjana

And there you have it! A few random facts about me!
