All about me…..

The lovely Jo over at My Monkeys Dont Sit Still has tagged me in an ‘All about me’ post – this was started by another blogger after her daughter came home from school with a booklet called ‘All about me’. I think it is sometimes very easy to hide behind the computer screen and not really show others the real you. So here goes nothing….!

First things first – your name and what you do?
Ah good, a nice easy start. I am Kate and I am currently on maternity leave from my job as a teaching assistant for children with special needs. I also work part time as social media support and product reviewer for Nursery Trader.

I live at home with….
My husband Kevin (37) and our 3 children – Gemma (7), Jacob (5) and Max (5 months).

My favourite thing to do is…
Depends if I am with my family or alone. When I am on my own I like to blog, read and watch TV. With the family, we enjoy cycling, walking and swimming.

My favourite thing to eat is…
Chocolate. Or cake. Or both…

When I get cross I…
Shout. I’m not proud of it, but it’s the way I am.

Sometimes I worry because…
I wonder what will happen to my children if I dont bring them up the ‘right’ way. Deep down I know that there is no ‘right’ way, we all just muddle through doing the best we can. Yet I still worry!

My favourite book is…
The Hunger Games. One of those books I picked up and then couldn’t put down again!

My favourite toy is…
My iPhone. It is ALWAYS with me. I use it for everything from texting friends to blogging and Facebook. Funnily enough I don’t actually use it for phoning people much. I don’t know what I would do if I lost it!

I dislike…
Oooh where do I start? People without children parking in parent and child spaces, bananas, mess, the fact I don’t have more patience. The list goes on…

When I grow up I want to be…
A midwife. Since having my children I have been inspired to have a change of career, and I plan to start university in 2015. I am determined I will get there, one day.

So now you know just a little bit more about me. I want to know more about you lovely lot too, so I am tagging 5 other bloggers who I want to join in the fun!

    Lovely post. I had fun doing mine, too, and like you, I do need my iPhone! Yes, that parent parking thing is annoying!

    I have started parking in parent and child spaces without my children – but only for fear of getting trapped out of my car 😉 I think I can be forgiven at this stage but I’m always ready to argue with someone haha.

      I think being hugely pregnant entitles you to park there!

    I love reading more about bloggers – love this idea. I’ve mine to do soon! I HATE parent/child space hoggers too – nightmare ! x 🙂

    I think a lot of bloggers will say their phone is their favourite toy. What would we do without them?
