The honesty blogging challenge continued…

It’s been ten full days I think!

A long time in a blogging world.

We have just had an awesome long weekend, and coming back to work yesterday was a bit of drag! You know that feeling. The one where you stare at your work and hope it will just happen. It never does though.

I didn’t holiday this weekend, but it did give me a couple of days to get some work done for the course I am doing (Early Childhood development), still behind though. I think that I am going to have to start getting up at 5 every morning and just trying to squeeze an hour in. Seems like the most realistic time considering the nights are filled with what would be considered (by a single non parent who dislikes animals) as complete chaos!

I have been struck with serious writer’s block though- lol- I need to make up a story or nursery rhyme that incorporates the foundational mathematics principals. Suggestions anyone?

Onto my blogging honesty challenge…  

Day 16 — I’ve just been granted the power of resurrection but I can only use it to bring back one dead celebrity. I would bring back ________ because…

A celebrity to me? Or a real celebrity- my first question.

Seriously though I think I would go with Aryton Senna. For those who have no idea who he is, don’t worry neither did I a year ago. He was an extremely passionate and talented Formula 1 racing car driver who died on the track.

Why? Really, just to put him at a dinner table with my knight. I would never live it down. I would possibly be known as the best girlfriend ever!!! Who wouldn’t want that? After that I think my knight would do anything he possibly could for me.

Day 17 — There are many mysteries in the universe. If there were one truth I could learn, it would be…

Why did God give us choice? How different would things be if Eve never chose the apple? Child bearing would probably be pain free, and I may not have to work so damn hard with no joy!

Day 18 — I would agree or disagree that high school is/was the time of my life… Because…


I hated being a teenager. I worked hard at trying to make everyone like me, when in fact I don’t think many people did. I was nerdy. My mom let me wear clothes that make me feel embarrassed when I look at photos. I never knew what to do with my hair. I never studied, and therefore was an average student. I did work hard for my school and extra-murually and this pushed me far. But it also meant that my last year of school was even more work being deputy head girl.

I locked myself in my room as much as I possibly could, and defied my parents wherever it was possible.

I would never choose to go back. If I was forced to however I would be a very different person. I would work harder at academics, and I would eat more vegetables!

Day 19 — The film that best describes how my day-to-day life feels is…

Bridesmaids. I just giggle WRITING that.

Day 20 — I’m half naked, cold, tired, hungry, hurt, wet and just washed up on a deserted island. The first things I need to do to survive is…

Find my iphone, and then check if there is any signal whatsoever.(Surprised- not really! I am shocking.)

Day 21 –  The person or persons that do not read my blog but I wish he/she/they would is…

Brad. George. Enrique.

You do realize that I am talking about Pitt, Clooney and Iglesias hey?  Perhaps one of them would realize that I am the ONE! From there on it would all be rose petals and champagne.

Of course lots of babies after that. Then I wouldn’t mind too much on the choices Eve made.


  1. I’m pretty sure your knight would not like your choices for day 21! I have to wonder if all animals could speak back then. Eve did not seem to afraid of the serpent when it spoke to her. No pain in child birth, no periods, maybe no acne.

  2. Heh, I like that you call him a Knight, btw. So pretty ❤ LOL at Day 21 though. They're too old!!! Hate to burst your bubble, but the chances of your iPhone picking up signals are somewhere between "impossible" and "only in your imagination" on the realism scale LOL.

  3. I’m good at nursery rhymes… what foundation principals exactly do you need to incorporate??
