Guardian - Q & A's : Knob or not?

I have been tagged for this by Carol over at Carol Finds Her Wings - and basically I have to answer a list of questions as featured in the Guardian so I can then either be sent smiling into the 'yeah you seem like a nice person, I'd go for a pint with you' group or be sent hanging my head in shame in to the 'Christ what a knob - listen to yourself!' group....pressure is on.

**Which living person do you must admire and why?
I would have to say I most admire Janet Street Porter as she is not afraid to say what she really thinks, laughs at herself and is so clever and funny into the bargain - try reading her book 'Life's too F**king Short' and you will see exactly what I mean.

**When were you happiest?
I am happiest when the sun is shining, the kids are not arguing and I have no pressing things to be done - so needless to say few and far between but great when it happens!

**What was your most embarrassing moment?
It was very recently to be honest but i didn't even know about it at the time.... It was when I was in labour with Little Man and the Gas and Air was talking for me (that's my excuse!) I told my husband and the midwife that I was coming back in the next life as a ...woman! because we know how to have babies and also a few other strange ramblings - so glad we didn't film the birth after all or they would be caught on camera for ever. I had the midwife laughing at me according to my husband - hhhmmm not sure that was the desired effect at that point.

**What is your most treasured possessions?
My photo's are top of this (you can never replace a photograph after all) secondly would be my memories in my head for the same reasons.....

**Where would you like to live?
If it was a 'choose anywhere' place it would be Barbados - so exotic.

**What's your favourite smell?
Has to be the smell of a newborn - don't know why but didn't bath Little Man for the first 3 days so the smell wouldn't be washed off.....

**Who would play you in the film of your life?
As it is unlikely to ever be made, should it be, I would like Angelina Jolie to play me as it would be fantastic to look like her (trying to be me) even if it was just for a film.

**What is your favourite book?
Love books by Kathy Reich and Jonathon Nasaw but no favourite as they are all great.

**What is your most unappealing habit?
Arrgghh no!! Do I have to? Well I have IBS so my bottom likes to talk - enough said!

**What would be your fancy dress costume of choice?
Oh definitely Morticia from the Adamms Family - gothic, sexy and cool....

**What is your earliest memory?
From when I was about 4, riding on the scooters on my first day at playgroup.

**What is your guiltiest pleasure?
Looking at actor's biceps!

**What do you owe your parents?
Everything but mostly an apology for being a nightmare for getting lost and causing stress to my parents in shopping centres when I was small - sorry xx

**To whom would you most like to say sorry to and why?
To my husband as I know how impossible I am to live with - no I am not, yes I am, and for always changing my mind ....

**What or who is the greatest love of my life?
Rock music is the what and my family are my who.

**What does love feel like?
All consuming, have to be together, can't live with but can't be without - that's love.

**What was the best kiss of your life?
My first proper kiss aged 11 years in the alley (my first boyfriend and my first broken heart!)

**Which word or phrases do you most overuse?
'To be honest' 'at the end of the day' 'Really?' 

**Whats the worst job you have ever done?
Anything that involves cold calling people - never ever again and I am never rude to those that do it to me - been there, done that and know how it hurts when people are rude.

**Whats the closet you've come to death?
I haven't but do believe in near death experiences - random link there I know....

**What do you consider your greatest achievement?
With 4 children my sanity is an achievement as times.....

**When did you last cry and why?
Friday as I am tired at the moment and my son's behaviour was very extreme that day - not the best combination.

**How do you relax?
Simply put - I don't but the closest I get is through blogging.

**What is the most important lesson life had taught you?
Tomorrow is another day...make the most of every one and take it as a chance to forgot the rubbish one that happened before it!!! 

So there you have it - knob or pint - the choice is yours!!
