So I have been tagged in a meme by Ellen27 from In a Bun Dance, which has taken me a while to respond to. I’m never very good at filling out forms or questionnaires as I always worry about getting things wrong, even when there is no right or wrong answer. I have done my best and hope that anyone who reads finds it mildly interesting.

No good on this one – Sorry!
When were you happiest?
I think the day I got married is one of my happiest memories, I remember I couldn’t stop smiling it was great.
What was your most embarrassing moment?
I have several, but the one that I keep remembering is asking someone when they were due (cringe moment) and they weren’t pregnant!!!
Aside from property, what’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought?

According to NJ (Hubby) it is leaving stuff lying around where I last dropped it. I beg to differ, but can’t think of anything else.
What would be your fancy dress costume of choice?

What is the worst job you’ve done?
I have not had any horrendous jobs, but the worst part of being a parent has to be cleaning up sick, from carpets, beds and cars!!

At the moment the one thing I would change is not having an induction with TJ then I would possibly not have been through PND.
