Meme Month @ Max & Me

I've been tagged in a few memes lately, which is perfect considering the blog funk I seem to have fallen into lately. I think the funk may have a lot to do with the fact that we have had so many bills and unexpected expenses come up lately, & that there's been no money left for craft or DIYs.

Anyway onto my first Meme - I was tagged by the insanely talented Kristin over at Pritty Tings.

The rules for this one are:

**You must post the rules {?!}
**Answer the 11 questions that the tagger posted for you & then create 11 questions to ask the people you’ve tagged
**Tag 11 people and link them in your post
**Let them know you have tagged them

1. Your favorite season?
It's a tie between Autumn or Spring. I love those in between months that aren't too hot or too cold.
2. Tea or coffee?
Coffee for sure. Even the smell of tea makes me screw my nose up. Although I did smell some tea the other day that had dried raspberries and yoghurt chips in them. That kind of tea seems like it would probably taste ok.
3. I think its fair to say that most (if not all) of us have slight obsessive compulsive tendencies, for instance my sister has to have the car radio or the television volume on an even number and my mum has to spin herself in the opposite direction after she turns around.  Do you have any and if so what are they?
A few that spring to mind are: the volume thing - it needs to be an even number or multiple of five. Routine things that I do everyday need to be always done in the same order. I always load the dishwasher by clearing one section of bench space at a time. I open my computer windows at work in the same order everyday - if I close one by accident I have to shut them all done and re-open them again in the right order. I have a million little things like that, but I think I'm getting better with age. I used to get so mad at the supermarket if the check-out operator put items in the bags that I didn't think should go together.
4. Do you wash as you go when cooking or leave a big old mess to clean up at the end?
I always end up with an enormous mess. I wish I was a clean as you go type person :) 
5. Do you prefer savory or sweet foods?
Sweet, sweet. sweet!
6. What did you want to grow up to be when you were little?
I think I wanted to be a lawyer and then a physiotherapist. 
7. What is your most favorite thing (inanimate object) in the whole world?
My bed. I love sleep so much!
8. Something that really annoys you?
This list could run the risk of becoming really long too. So that I don't sound like the worlds most uptight person I'll keep it to one thing... Fingernail biting.
9. Are you a fan or reality shows? If so spill your favorite please!
Not normally, but I do love survivor.
10. If you could have a dinner party with three people (can be anyone present or past) who would you choose?
I'm going to pick four. My Grandma and Nana, Sean's Meme and Gran. I would love to introduce Max to Nana and Gran, then I would sit back and listen to the four of them compare stories.
11.  What is the first thing you do when you wake in the morning?
Check my iPhone - email, instagram and pinterest.
Now, I'm totally going to break the rules and only tag three people. I have a few memes I want to complete this month and if I tag that many people every time, I wont have anyone left to tag!! 
So I tag: Cat @ Letter's to Georgia.  Cherie @ A Baby Called Max. Melanie @ Smiley Melly.

My questions for these three lovely ladies are:

1.  Who is your favourite fictional character and why?
2. What's your go-to meal when you have guests that you want to impress?
3. At what point in your life did you realise that wanted to be a Mum?
4. Ocean or swimming pool?
5.  What was the best thing that happened to you on the weekend just gone?
6. Which actor(s) would play you in a movie about your life?
7. What is your hidden talent?
8. Could you comfortably go to movie or eat at a restaurant by yourself?
9. Which internet site is at the top of your recently visited list?
10. If you had a theme song that played everytime you walked into a room, what would it be?
11. Pineapple on pizza... Yes or no?

Seeing as I only tagged three peeps, I'll leave it open to anyone else that wants to join in too. If you answer the questions make sure you send me the link so I can read them!!

Can't wait to hear what you have to say!


  1. So fun! Thanks for the tag! I'll be sure to post something tomorrow. =)Love your questions- and your answers. I'm with you on the bed thing... kind of wish I was there right now!

  2. Oooh you are a good question chooser! Thanks for playing along Tamsyn and I love how you do the volume thing too:)


Your comments make my day. Thank you!
