Meme, me and me again

Greetings my little bloggy chums, I'm home safely from Prague (which was lovely) and I'm now knee deep in papers to mark (which is not lovely) and I have so much to do and my house so badly needs cleaning and sorting (no change there then !) and yet I still find the time to blog (selfless to the core, I know)

Congratulations to The Edge and Mud on surviving the London Marathon, much kudos to you both. Mud has tagged me with this meme and as we all know, your auntie is a great big fat show off and compliant by nature so here's my answers. I wonder if there is anything left to find out about me ?

1.What are your current obsessions? designer handbag and shoe porn

2. Which item from your wardrobe do you wear most often?
Do my jammies count ? No ? Probably Gap jeans, long and lean, a Petit Bateau childrens black vest (age 14) and a grey cardie currently the boyfriend one from M&S as my Gap cashmere one still hasn't been sewed up.

3. What's for dinner?
God Almighty, you sound just like my children, I don't bloody know, I only decide when the offspring start mithering me to make their tea.

4. Last thing you bought?
Assorted groceries from Sainsbury's and for myself ? that was a Starbucks mug with Prague on it.

5. What are you listening to?
New White Lies CD

6. If you were a god/goddess who would you be?
Oh come on ! The Goddess of Love of course, either Aphrodite, Venus or Isis, any of those, as always, hear me say the words, my name is auntiegwen and I am a love addict, a mush junkie extraordinaire

7. Favourite holiday spots
Places I've yet to see

8. Reading right now?
The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff, OCR exam and portfolio guidance and The Sunday Times.

9. 4 words to describe yourself.
Small, Scottish, tired and maternal

10. Guilty pleasure?
Sneaky smokes on nights out accompanied by wine (I never smoke when I'm not drinking)

11. Who or what makes you laugh until you’re weak?
Billy Connolly, Peter Kay, Frankie Boyle, The Beautiful Son

12. First spring thing?
White tulips

13. Planning to travel to next?
Probably Turkey at the half term break (if our passports come back in time, the saga of replacing the passports is another blog all to itself)

Ice cold pink champagne on Saturday night in Prague

15. When did you last get tipsy?
Sunday afternoon in Prague

16. Favourite ever film?
Gregory's Girl

17. First Love ?
I was 15 and he was 16, his name was Alan Osprey and he got called Ospur. He was a punk, had beautiful blue eyes and dark hair and was tall. I loved him wholeheartedly and was devastated when we broke up.

18. What do you most want to achieve ?
Total peace of mind and true happiness, I've had it before and I'd like it back again please.

Rules of the meme. Respond and rework. Answer questions on your own blog. Replace one question. Add one question. Tag 8 people.

I’m tagging:

Oh I don't like to name names, you know that, and I am a bit subversive, so no names no pack drill, please feel free to play along if you want to.

Waiting, waiting, waiting for the passport blog. ;-)

Jammies are a perfectly acceptable answer.

When you finishing marking your papers, would you mark mine? :D

Laura said...

Glad you got back safely :o) I'm going to do the meme thingy.

Oh my goodness, you are toooo good, how do you get breaks away? Bring up your kids, keep house, and keep kids at work under control? Also be such a fashion queen. Maybe I should ditch his nibs and all would be restored? No really couldn't manage without him.
Glad you had a good break, you lovely yummy mummy!

So glad you hunted out the pink champagne bar in Prague m'dear. Smoking?! Naughty Auntiegwen ;-) TFx

Squirmy Popple said...

I'm glad you liked Prague! I thought it was absolutely stunning - and they make a great dark beer I've never been able to find anywhere else.

Shirley - I'd need a drink to recover from it first

Lisa - I think jammies are the answer to every dressing crisis, if I could live in mine, how happy would I be ?

Lolly - I read your's, twas good

Frankie - God love you my dear, I am a lazy article and should be ashamed at the state of my house and the state of my fashion sense and I would be overgiddy with happiness for a his nibs of my own xxx

TF - only when I'm with other sneaky smokers but sadly the 2 men I used to SS with have gone, 1 given up and the other gone gone, I'll have to convert one of my girly friends instead, hopefully they won't be gone gone

Katie - I didn't have a dark beer but I got a free one at a party at the Czech senate ! yep, I wandered into the garden party to celebrate 10 years of their EU membership, oh yes, I only crash dignified parties !
