Happy New Year folks! A very warm welcome to 2012. The Little Interview gets off to a flying start with one of our very special blogging friends, Miss Honie B from Honie Mummy. We have been firm friends since Honie B reviewed The Land of Me way back in March last year and gave it a big thumbs up! We wandered what mini Honie B was like...so we found out!
1) Describe you as a child in 5 words.
Cheeky, smiley, shy, stubborn, very curly hair.
2) What is your favourite book and why?
I read so many I can't remember most of them - but I do remember Enid Blyton's 'Mallory Towers' books: 1st Term at Mallory Towers, Upper Fourth at Mallory Towers etc. Nah, my absolute favourite character is Pippi Longstocking, Astrid Lindgren - I think I can see similarities in my character. lol
3) What was your favourite toy and why?
Lego! I am the youngest of four children and we had loads of Lego in a huge steel box my Dad made, with seperate sections for the pieces (he was an engineer). I used to build houses and can remember the red tiled shaped ones. We didn't have the pre-packed character sort - just loads and loads of the original stuff. I even had Meccano!
4) If you could be a fictional character from a kids TV show/film/book for a day who would it be and what would you do?
I'd be Wile E. Coyote and I'd get that Road Runner! I used to watch this with my Dad and it used to make me laugh (still does). Or Looby Loo and go off adventuring with Noddy and Big Ears.
5) What inspired you to write a blog?
When I worked as a Adv.Sports/Holisitc therapist and used metaphorical examples as advice for my clients, they used to say, 'you should write that down - make a book about it' and so my first blog was some of the things I used to say - you can find this in the 'Time Out for Mums' section in my blog. Best job I ever did and I never tired of giving up my time or getting the appreciation I recieved - didn't make a lot of money though! Also, I am a big believer in networking - money doesn't make the world go round, networking does. We all need each other and when the chips are down it's those who looked out for you that will be there to support you when you need them. I have heard so many times from people, about the fear of losing everything. How can you lose everything when there will be friends to see you through the worst! Blogging is a fabulous way of sharing your best and worst moments and lots of advice and networking along the way.
