In just over two weeks I’ll be off to my first BlogOn Conference so I thought I would take part in the BlogOn Christmas Jumper linky! As I stalked the hashtag during May’s conference, I was pretty jealous of everyone there as it looked awesome so I decided to book my ticket for the next one. It’ll be a great opportunity for me to learn and expand my knowledge. The sessions are looking amazing, so I can’t wait.
Please share your favourite photo of you.
If you could choose a band to play in your garden for your birthday, who would you pick?
Not a band, but I would choose Ed Sheeran. That counts, right?!
What do you take with you for long visits to the toilet?
I’m a stay-at-home dad to a 3 year old, my trips to the toilet tend to last around 30 seconds!
What word can’t you spell?
Aluminum. (It’s killing me to not correct that!)
What’s the most unusual job you’ve ever had?
I’ve actually never had an unusual job! I’ve worked as a freelance photographer, film-maker, editor, writer and in retail. All relatively normal jobs. I know, BORING!
Knitting, sewing or crotchet?
Knitting! My Mum taught all of us kids how to knit and crotchet when we were younger and I really enjoyed knitting. I’ve never learnt how to sew but I really should considering how many pairs of trousers I end up chucking away.
Without looking it up, what is a jerkinhead?
Um. Another word for ‘dickhead’?
If you could have as much of one food as you wanted forever, what would it be?
Shepherd’s pie! But made with pasta sauce, not gravy. I only say that because my partner hates mash so we never have it and it’s one of my childhood favourites.
What is the scariest thing you’ve ever done?
Going on a roller-coaster. I didn’t go on rides as a kid so they’re terrifying to me! Either that or getting on a train to London when I was sixteen to meet essentially a group of strangers. Kinda like what I’m doing with BlogOn!
If you needed a getaway driver, who would you choose?
My partner, probably the only driver I trust!
Would you rather live in Narnia or at Hogwarts?
It has to be Hogwarts, doesn’t it?
What snack food says ‘Christmas’ to you?
Chocolate log! I’ve made on every year since I was little.
Is there life on Mars?
Probably, in some sense, yes.
Which Christmas movie would you be a character in, and who would play you?
I think Elf has to be my favourite Christmas film, so it would have to be that. As to who would play me… NO idea! Any suggestions?
What are you proudest of?
Becoming a Dad! I never thought I’d had children (despite hoping) so it was a dream come true when we found out. Ever since, I’ve been the stay-at-home parent and wouldn’t have it any other way.
If you are going to this years BlogOn Xmas Conference then why not take part in the linky yourself? I think it’s a fun way to ‘meet’ some of the other bloggers who will be there. Here’s the link to the original post so you can read some of the others!
