Saturday, April 30, 2016

BlogOnMSI is in the morning, I've probably left this a bit late but better late than never!

Share a recent picture of you - A selfie I took today. I'd just had my hair done. it won't look like this tomorrow!

If you had to describe yourself in three words…….
Fat (It's ok I like the word), Just me.

How long have you been blogging and what made you start?

I started my first blog in 2008 This is the first post, that blog hasn't been updated since 2012. I started it as part of a photo challenge called HSMS. I didn't really know what a blog was but as I say in that post I wanted to start a photo blog so I did. 

I then set up a second blog which was about weight loss, then about 4 years ago I discovered Plus Size bloggers and deleted all the weightless posts and roughly six months later I set up a new Gmail account and rebranded to become Seeing Spots. 

What was your favourite TV program as a child?

We've recently been talking about kids TV at work and I have a long list. Programmes that stick out are Clarissa Explains it All, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, The Queens Nose, Art Attack (but not the big picture)

Something interesting you might not know about me is . . .

I'm not a parent blogger. (ok so not interesting but it's a question I always get asked at Blog on, no I don't want children and as Laura always says it's not a parent blogger conference) 

What is the weirdest food you have ever eaten?

This is a tough one, I guess my weird food combo of choice would be fish 'n' chip crisps dipped in choc dip chocolate. Don't knock it till you've tried it. 

What was your biggest fashion faux pas?

As a child of the 80s/90s pretty much all of it, I had a velvet floppy hat in an attempt to be Six from Blossom. Shell suit, it was very tasteful black, pink and green. Cycling shorts with a pink neon stripe worn with a black tshirt with neon people on the front very similar to the CBBC logo of the time. 

What are you pet peeves?
Lateness (Ahem yes I know this post is going live less than 24 hours before BlogOn)

Who would be your 3 perfect dinner party guests (dead or alive) and why?
Another tough one, I don't know I'm not overly sociable. I think Freddie Mercury would be one, The Queen and maybe Rylan Clarke. 

We always play a game whilst watching come dine with me what would you make if Lizzie and Pip came for tea? 

If they made a movie of your life, what would it be about and which actor would play the part of you?

People always say I look like Beth Ditto, I'm not sure if this is just fat girl blindness but I'll admit to fangirling when she followed me on Instagram. 

If you could live in any sitcom, which one would it be?
Melissa and Joey, I want Melissa Joan Hart to be my BFF

Name a famous person you have met
The last one was probably Lisa Riley, but I did see Audrey from  Corrie trying to park her car outside work a couple of weeks ago.

Which social media platform best describes your personality and why?

Instagram, I'm a very visual person.

What picture do you have on lock screen on your phone / computer?
I don't think I've ever changed the lock screen on my phone, I don't really see the point and I quite like the one that came with my phone. 

How many pairs of shoes do you own?

I'd say 50ish pairs (probably more)

What period of time from the past would you most like to have lived?
I'm not sure really, maybe the 1600s or to be a teenager in the 80s

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I'd love to go to South Africa or back to Australia now I'm old enough to appreciate it and I'd also like to visit my cousin in NZ. 

What is your guilty pleasure?
Say Yes to the Dress.

What is your favourite tipple?
GIN! (girls, drink, feck, nuns)

If you had a magic lamp and a Genie, what would be your three wishes
Patience to accept lateness
The skills to be tidy
