So, I was tagged by one of my blogging pals the lovely Lisa over at Into the Glade to do this post The A – Z of me.
Basically you have to say something about yourself using every letter of the alphabet with hopefully some sort of relevance somewhere along the line.
Yikes not sure how easy this is going to be especially when I get to Q and X!!
Let’s hope my links aren’t too tentative.
However, it’s a really lovely way to get to know other bloggers and also for you to get to know a bit more about me – assuming you want to of course.
So here goes…
A – ANTIGUA – yay we are off to the Caribbean on holiday for the first time in just over a week’s time. Soooo excited!!
B – Of course has to be the name of our darling boy – BARNABY
C – We have a CAT; although more commonly known as the mog, but for this purpose I’ll be a little bit more polite about her.
D – If Barnaby had been a girl, he would have been called DARCY – I just love that name.
E – I drive a Range Roger EVOQUE and I absolutely love it. I’m a lucky girl.
F – I normally buy myself a bunch of FLOWERS each week when I do my food shop. I love having flowers in the home; they make me happy. I don’t often get given a bunch of flowers these days *looks MrD’s way* so I figure I may as well buy them myself lol.
G – I love our GARDEN and spending time pottering around or simply just sitting and enjoying (gosh how old do I sound?).
H – The song HAPPY by Pharrell Williams is such a great song and I have it as my mobile ring tone.
I – I don’t do ICE-CUBES in my drinks (nope not even Pimms) – much too cold for me. MrD thinks it’s weird, but sorry it’s the way I am!!
J – I love it when my bangles/bracelets JINGLE & JANGLE – sorry if this is a bit of a weak link, but I was struggling with ‘J’. True story though, I love to jingle my bangles lol.
K – This one has to be the name of our little dog – KIPSTER of course.
L – I LOVE everything pink and sparkly and if there’s a bit of fluff thrown in, even better lol.
M – I’m a MUMMY!! Oh my goodness… like when did that happen? Wonder if you ever feel mature enough to be an actual mum for goodness sake?!
N – I have my NAILS done every two to three weeks. For me it’s important my hands/nails look nice and I love choosing different colours for my nails. In the summer it’s always some sort of pink and sometimes I have nail art on the ring fingers.
O – My lovely MrD and I got married in the month of OCTOBER as well as MasterB being born in OCTOBER too so it’s always a special month in our home.
P – One of the social media platforms I love is PINTEREST. It’s an absolute visual feast and amazing for gathering inspiration. You can visit my boards here if you like and get a real feel for what it’s all about.
Q – I enjoy having QUIET times. It’s funny because when I was younger I found it difficult to cope with the quiet but now I literally embrace it.
R – I don’t like RATS and can’t even touch them. Those tails EUGH!!
S – My lovely little blog is called SEIZE EACH DAY – the Latin aphorism being Carpe Diem taken from a poem in the Odes. Seize the day was taken, so it became Seize each day. At the end of December 2014 I knew I had to make certain changes in my lifestyle and I wanted to fully embrace the Carpe Diem attitude and hence my blog was born.
T – I like to have TWINKLY lights all over the house.
U – How amazing does it feel to have matching UNDERWEAR – always have to have white and white, black and black or flesh tone with flesh . Can’t be doing with this mix and match thing.
V – I can’t see me doing the whole VLOGGING thing (for those not in the know, that’s video blogging). There’s some fab ones out there, but I really don’t have the confidence right now and not sure I ever will have. And anyway, I sound awful when I hear myself and couldn’t put you all through that!
W – The WORLD-WIDE-WEB – what would we ever do without it?
X – MrD has to take X-RAYS as part of his job being a vet. I know that’s not me, but I am married to him!!
Y – I’ve been a bit of a YO-YO dieter for a lot of my adult life, grrrrr! You can read about my weight-loss journey here if you’d like to find out more.
Z – ZIPPERDY do daaa, zipperdy day, my oh my what a wonderful day! One of my favourite little songs to sing when I’m feeling happy. Yep I know … mental!
Wow that was hard! Hopefully my answers aren’t too woolly.
I think I’m now supposed to nominate some other blogging pals, although I know a lot have already done their A-Z’s. So to the following ladies, if you’ve already done yours let me know and I’ll take a peek at your blog.
If you haven’t and you’d like to play along, yay and I I look forward to reading yours – let me know you’ve done it though!
So without further ado I nominate the following:
Would love to hear yours ladies…
Carpe Diem x
