Kreativ Blogger Meme

One of my favourite bloggers, Amelia from Weddings, Babies... Everything has passed me the Kreativ Blogger Meme this week, and I'm so excited to do it (thanks Amelia)!

Here's how it works: I need to share 7 things about me that others may not know.

Where should I start? Think I'll just dive straight in..

  1. I never buy the first item on the supermarket shelf: I always take the one behind it. To me, it's logical, because a) people test the first one to see if they like it (deoderant, anyone?).. and b) the longer use-by dates are always at the back, and I like to get value for money.
  2. If I can't sleep, I like to watch Nigella Lawson DVDs in bed. There's something so soothing about watching her cook, I drift off everytime.. which brings me to #3.
  3. I pretend I have my own cooking show when I cook. Oh yes - I talk while I cook, giving step by step instructions as I go. No, I don't set up a camera (although I may one day, you never know)
  4. I like going to the movies by myself. Don't get me wrong, I also like going with people. But when I am frazzled and need time out, I go see a movie by myself to chill out. I get there early, I always have Maltesars and a Diet Coke (although that will have to change now thanks to "Sweet Poison" and Sunny Mummy!) and I escape for a couple of hours. I don't mind which movie I see, I'm an equal opportunity movie goer. Ooh, and the less people in the cinema, the better. I like to pretend I've booked out the entire session for myself.
  5. I snore. Twice, I have woken myself up with my own snoring. Once when I was in the bath (Note to Marissa, drink less red wine in the bath), and once during a Uni Lecture. I did not stay at Uni very long after that ;)
  6. I love kid's music. No problem, seeing I have a young daughter. Except lately I am finding myself singing to a Play School or Justine Clarke cd in the car.... even when little Sophie's not there. I can't help it, they're so easy to sing along to, they are always happy songs (and I'm one of those happy song lovers - no melodrama for me unless it's in a movie or reality tv show - then I'm hooked)and I get excited when it's a new cd and I realise it has songs on it that I knew when I was a kid (and had forgotten about until now).
  7. I prefer washing dishes to drying dishes. Lucky for me, my husband prefers drying to washing. I married well. Although to be honest, I prefer not washing or drying at all. How old do kids have to be before you can make them do the dishes? I know, Mother of the Year ;)

So that's my 7! PLEASE comment below if you have any of the above in common with me, I would like to think I am still normal :)

Now I need to pass the Kreativ Blogger Meme on, a few less than I planned because a few of my favourite gals have already been tagged! Anyway, the lucky ladies are:

A few guidelines to follow ladies:

  • Copy the award to your blog
  • Insert a link to the person who nominated you
  • Share 7 thimgs about yourself that you haven't told us before
  • Nominate other bloggers for the award
  • Link to their blogs
  • Tell the nominees about their award

xo Marissa.


  1. Thank you so much for the award darling -- I say 6 is a good age to start putting them to hard labour...mine started loading the D-washer at 4 years of age...hope that is the norm??

  2. I COMPLETELY agree with number 1. It's logical not to take the first item. Who wants food that's had other people's paws all over it? Although, I also never take the first item for anything, not just food. But I think it's a normal thing to do!

    I also like going to the movies by myself occasionally, for a bit of "me" time. And, as much as I protest, I also am a snorer. Just don't tell my hubby that I admitted that, I'd never live it down!

    As for the dishes, I'm with Ben on that. I MUCH prefer drying than washing. It seems easier, and you don't have to put your hands into dish water. There's no mess with drying clean dishes :)

    Keep up the great blogging, reading it is my new addiction!


  3. Thanks Kat! Good point about drying the dishes :) I do have dishpan hands at the moment so it would be nice to have pretty girl hands again. Maybe I should dry after all!

  4. Thanks so much for the award :) I agree with #1. And I snore too, and have woken myself up lots of times because of it!
