11 Questions from Letters on a Postcard:

 What inspires you to start following a blog?
Numerous things! Mainly if the blog stands out, if we have similar interests and most importantly if the posts interest me!

Who is the one person in the world you could not live without?
My other half! I don't realise how much he does for me and how much I rely on him. I think I'd be lost without him!

What is your go to comfort food?
Do I have to chose just one?! That is torture! 
If it's just the one then it has to be crisps! I seriously think I could live off them! It's got to be Walkers though.

Are you living the life you want, are you content?
I am happy with most aspects of my life but there are things I would like to change! I would love to go back to University or study a trade. 
I want to get a mortgage and get out of the renting trap. I want to get married. I want to learn to drive and I want to start a family! Lots of wants!  

Who is the most inspirational person in your life?
My Mum! Stereotypical answer but she really is. I grew up with two loving parents even though they both separated while my siblings and I were young. My Mum was a full time working Mother with three kids my entire childhood (and still is) and even though she would be better off not working she did work and she worked hard! When I came to the age when I could work myself she wouldn't even take board off me even though she was still struggling! She is incredible.

Where is your dream vacation?
I love America so a road trip across the States would be amazing! Although I don't think I would want to come back.

What was the highlight of 2012 for you?
I was lucky enough to win £1000 of Thomas Cook vouchers in 2012! So I booked a holiday to Alcudia in Majorca and stayed at a 4 star hotel, all inclusive for 10 days.
It was my favourite holiday yet and it was all free. It was paradise.

Is there a single moment when you have been really proud of yourself, such as a graduation, having a baby, passing your driving test etc.
I was a rebel without a cause when I was a teenager and really messed up with my schooling. I didn't think I would be able to educate myself further and that was it. When I did my National Diploma at college and passed I was extremely proud of myself. So when you think there is no hope left you can always get yourself back on track!

If you could re-live your teenage years, knowing what you know now, would you?
I wouldn't of grown up so fast. Kids grow up too soon these days. You have all your adult life to be responsible, enjoy being a kid while you can! I was 16 going on 30. I thought I had the weight of the world on my shoulders. Little did I know! 

Name one interesting fact about your personality.
I have the most warped sense of humour. It's a little dry, sarcastic, silly and crude! Some people say it's a mans sense of humour! Although it's a good thing cause I can make light out of awkward situations with my daft jokes.

If you could do anything in the world right now, no expense spared, what would you do?
Travel the world!
