Penny at Spirited Baby tagged me. She's pretty fabulous and I love her so much it hurts. She's an awesome BFF and my sister (double blessing!)

Which living person do you admire most and why?
My husband, for putting up with me loving me. He rocks.

When were you happiest?
I am the happiest I have ever been right now. Life is still super hard but we were never promised an easy life. I am living my dream and am overjoyed.

My most embarrassing moment:
Presenting to a client and we looked down and there was a big hair just sitting on the table. A "you know from where" hair. And let's just say it wasn't mine.... We both just ignored it; I turned the page and quietly died on the inside.

Aside from property the most expensive thing you've bought:
A car- no surprises there.

What is your most treasured possesion:
My watch. The story is that my ex-boyfriend gave me a gucci watch for my 21st. My husband hated that I wore it but it was a good watch and I liked it. So for our 10th wedding anniversary Dida got me a surprise gift- a gucci watch. A nicer and prettier one. And I ♥ it a lot. So much so I have to "lay it down" when I get too attached. It is only a watch afterall!

Where would you like to live:
A suburb near to us. I love it. Old and established with old houses and streets. Near the sea.... what's not to love?

What's your favourite smell:
I have two: Rupi and Blossom. When I got to bed I open their bedroom doors and inhale. They smell so different but I love each one. Am I wierd? This sounded wierd....

Who would play you in a film of your life?
No idea...

What is your favourite book:
Crumbs. This is hard. I love so many books. I may take the holy route and say the bible, especially the book of Psalms.

What is your most unappealing habit:
I don't have one. Nor will I admit to one in the face of overwhelming evidence (presented by Dida)

What is your earliest memory:
I was about two and snuck off to have a swim by myself in the swimming pool. I remember clinging to the edge and working my way around the pool. I got my backside tanned for that one. As as a mother I can understand the horror my mother felt at finding me! She must have nearly died.

What is your guiltiest pleasure:
Reading gossip rags at the dentist or hairdresser....

What do you owe your parents:
Emotionally? A lot. Financially? Nothing.

To whom would you most like to say sorry, and why?
My ex-boyfriend's sister who tried to witness to me for years. And I would not listen. At all. I would like to say thank you.

Who or what is the greatest love of your life:
Jesus.(and yes the greatest human love is Dida- of course!)

What does love feel like?
 A teensy bit personal??!!???

What was the best kiss of your life?
As above

What words or phrases do you over use?
"in all honesty" I even find myself tiresome for saying it so much!

What is the worst job you have done?
Worked for a nutter designer for 5 months who drove me to the brink of a breakdown.

If you could edit your past what would you change?
I would have worked harder in school and actually listened in class. However, I like what I do now and wouldn't change that so would better marks have helped? Probably not.
Ooo! I know! I would have learned to sew a lot earlier. And saved more!

What is the closest you've come to death?
Playing that girl in the titanic off the front of a giant fast moving boat. I shudder when I think about it. Stoopid!!!!

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Being a Mama, hands down and nothing close. I love it.

When did you last cry and why?
On Saturday. Just over tired and over emotional. A little rain shower that passed with no ill effect.

How do you relax?
Reading, blogging, sewing and baking. Hanging out with friends.

What single thing would improve the quality of your life?
Getting a house cleaner. Seriously. Anyone know of any good ones?

What is the most important lesson life has taught you?
God's Timing is perfect. He has this deal under control and I can trust Him.

I tag:
Joye at Joyeful journey
Mountain Mama
Abigail at Shine On Child
Tea at Homemakers Heart
Gail at Delightfully Diva-ish

But don't feel pressured to do this. It takes a bit of time and activating the old noodle which can be hard when all you want to do is switch off. Just know you are loved and chosen!

I enjoyed reading this, Sammy! You had me laughing a couple of times. And I can understand liking the way your little ones smell. I like to hold Buzz close and smell his sweet little head. I've done it since he was a baby. Smells so good. Thanks for tagging me. ♥

Good on ya gal for giving it a go - love finding out more about you. And I agree it was really hard getting the brain in gear - some questions had me quite stumped for a while!!!

Can't wait to give it a go!! I think this is a good one actually - not fluffy like a lot of those pass-it-ons in blog land. Loved finding out a bit more about you, as I did about Penny :)xxx
