Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award
I was tagged for this blogging challenge, created 'to recognise the unique voices of women bloggers around the world', by the lovely Ashleigh of Loving My Finley. The rules of the game are simple:

☆ Thank the blogger who tagged you and link back to their blog.
☆ Answer the 10 questions given to you.
☆ Nominate 10 bloggers.
☆ Write 10 questions for your nominees to answer.

Read on for my answers.


1. Name one thing in your life up until now you’ve mostly regretted. 

I try not to regret things, because it's such a negative thing to do. I do wish I'd kicked up more of a fuss over my orthadontist's decision not to remove any teeth before fitting my brace as a teen. All of my front teeth have pushed themselves back out of line over the last few years. :(

2. Name one thing in your life up until now you are proud of. 

Graduating from Cambridge. It was a long, hard slog!

3. What’s your best blogging achievement to date? Why is it your best? 

Getting to #191 in the Tots100. My goal for this year was to get into the top 200, so to reach it in just February made me really happy.

4. If I was to give you £1 million right now, what would be the first thing you buy? 

A house. It would be great not to have to worry about paying rent ever again.

5. What’s your most favourite food and drink? 

French fries and strawberry milkshake.

6. What are you doing right this moment? (Besides from typing this out, obviously!) 

Watching Dr Who and playing 'twinkly hands' (literally just holding your hand in the air and waggling your fingers) with Marianna.

7. If you got given three wishes, what would you wish for? (And no, you can't wish for more wishes. That’s cheating!)

World peace, a cure for cancer and, because by that point I'd be sick of being selfless, lots and lots of money.

8. What animal did you have as your first pet, and what was its name? 

I had a goldfish named Ariel, like the little mermaid.

9. What is your favourite thing to do in your spare time? Besides from blogging, of course.

I like to read. You can check out my most recent reads HERE.

10. Lastly, tell me a random fact about yourself.

I have a weird phobia of chalk, and all chalk like substances. It's the powdery feel of them that goes through me. There are another seven more random facts about me HERE.


If you want to take part, please do! I'm leaving the tags open so if you feel like answering my questions, please just let me know so I can pop over and read your answers, and edit this post to include a link. If you're not blogging, feel free to answer any or all of the questions in the comments. :)

My ten questions are:
  1. If you were the opposite sex, what would your name be? (It could be what your parents chose, or just a name you like.) 
  2. What was the worst movie you've ever seen?
  3. Beach holiday or adventure getaway?
  4. If you owned a shop, what would it sell?
  5. What was your first job?
  6. If your life was a TV show, what would be the theme tune?
  7. Do you have any allergies?
  8. Maths or Math?
  9. What is your favourite fairy tale?
  10. What do you think it (your favourite fairy tale) says about you?

  5. I like to think I would like to own a shop and sell lovely cakes and hot drinks and nice hand made craft things. In reality, I'm sure it would be far too much hard work ;)

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale. You can read more about it HERE . 1975

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou

FM: " I was up really late and i needed to use the bathroom so i got up and my side of the bed is by the window, so i had a look out. i saw an object shaped like a typical space ship would look, but it had blue and red lights and appeared to be coming towards me. i watched it for a while and then left to use the bathroom and by the time i had returned (5 minutes later) the mysterious lights had almost disappeared into the distance.
