I was recently tagged by the lovely Jannelle, it's taken a while to get around to it, but here is my rather complex MEME...

What is your current obsession?
At the moment it is knitting, probably due to the cold weather. I do however swap and change my obsessions regularly between, sewing, felting, mosaics and of course knitting......

What was the most interesting thing you did today?
I have been stuck home with sick kid for days so am struggling with this one, does playing with paper dress up dolls sounds interesting to you???

What are you wearing today?
My comfy stuck at home clothes, thick socks, warm top, trackie bottoms, the theme here is WARMTH AND COMFORT!!! Not very cool huh...

What's for dinner?
Tonight is one of my favourites, Spicy Roasted Vegetables with Chickpea's and Cous Cous...YUM!!

What would you eat for your last meal?
Chocolate Brownie cake warmed up with ice cream to start, Baked Raspberry cheesecake for main and then Chocolate Mousse for dessert. No need to be healthy if it's my last meal after all.....

What's the last thing you bought?
Yesterday I went to the yarn store and they were having a sale, SAY NO MORE!!!

What are you listening to right now?
I love all music, but to be quite honest I don't think about it a lot. Julian is the music buff in out household and if he is home then there is always music playing. If I am on my own then I normally like the silence. Sometimes I put Cream Classics when I am doing the housework, reminds me of my clubbing days, which sadly seem like a lifetime ago!!

What do you think of the person who tagged you?
Jannelle is a great mother and an AMAZING photographer. A truly inspiring lady!

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
At the moment we are dreaming about owning a bit of land in Nelson, somewhere that the children can roam around safely, enjoy nature and have fun!!! Or maybe a sweet seaside cottage somewhere in Cornwall.....

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Without a shadow of a doubt it would be home.... to my Mum and Dad's. Hopefully my gorgeous brothers would be there, Mum would have cooked one of her lovely roast dinners (with sprouts..) and Dad would be opening another bottle of red wine. SIGH, if only!!

Which language do you want to learn?

What is your favorite color?
GREEN, as shown in nearly all of my knitting!!!

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
A floor length 'green' vintage velvet skirt I bought in Melbourne. It doesn't fit me at the moment, but I am hoping one day to squeeze into it again!

What is your dream job?
Midwife. Hopefully soon to be more reality than dream!

What's your favorite magazine?
Sew Hip an English magazine about sewing funny enough.

If you had £100 now, what would you spend it on?
I am assuming that this money has to be spent on ME... Some new boots I have had my eye on for about 3 years, I have been waiting patiently for them to be reduced, but they never are.

Describe your personal style?
At the moment it is whatever fits, but there is definitely a hippy chick living inside of me waiting to break free....

What are you going to do after this?
Apparently I have to draw Talia a fairy for her to colour in, then play dolls, then read books, then painting, then lego. Yep it's all about the sick bored kiddo...

What are your favorite films?
Hmmm, Into the Wild, Schindlers List, Chocolat, The Jazz Singer (yep sad but true), Amelie, The Kite Runner, Sideways and Hideous Kinky.

What's your favorite fruit?

What inspires you?
My children inspire me to be imaginative and see the joy in simple things. I am inspired by creativity in any form.

Do you collect anything?
Well I was going to say no, but it seems I have a bit of a collection of fabric and yarn going on, also a lot of coloured glass for my mosaics.

What are you currently reading?
I have just finished Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.

What makes you follow a blog?
I love connecting with other like minded people, be that in craft or parenting. I love blogs that are about family, art and craft. There is so much inspiration out there.

What do you love most about where you currently live?
We are close to the sea (not walking close, but driving close)..... and there are a lot of lovely families from Kalem's school that live near by.

The rules:1. Respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own.2. Tag eight other people.
Okay I know this sounds like I am not following the rules, but I think I may be the last person left to actually get this meme done. If there is anybody out there who hasn't done it and wants to play along feel free and please let me know if you do.....

It's not sad, the Jazz Singer is a brilliant film!!
Hope Talia is feeling better soon!

I hope your little one feels better soon! So lovely to know more about you, and I like that you would choose to spend the time at your parents house with your family. I would have to agree to that one!
Enjoy your day!!

Thanks for for playing, it was great to read more about you, I think you are right, nearly everyone has played this game in the last few weeks! x

Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
