Not wanting to bail out and be a Meme bore, here’s my contribution that I hope you’ll all enjoy.
(1) What was your happiest event?
Watching my son in his school harvest festival assembly. He attends a special school and it’s been such a long time since his done anything of this kind as his mainstream school would never involve him in any plays or presentations. He did a reading but froze up, so all the other children came up and stood beside him and they all read the piece together, of course this made me cry proud and happy tears. Moments like these are totally priceless.
(2) What was the saddest thing that happened?
We lost my dad’s brother to cancer.
(3) What was the most unlikely thing to happen that actually went ahead and did?
I won most inspiring blogger at the Mad Blog Awards
(4) Who let you down?
I let myself down a number of times (we learn from our mistakes).
(5) Who supported you?
My friend Donna always supports me, also my mum.
(6) Tell us one thing you learned
Not to be so hard on myself and sometimes I’m my own worse enemy.
(7) Tell us one thing that made you laugh
Taking the P&O ferry with Romanian Mum and both trying to walk to the other side of the ship while feeling a tad sea sick, we looked like two drunk women, falling all over the place.
(8) Tell us one thing that made you cry
I cry a lot, I’m quite an emotional wreak at times. One occasion that comes to mind would be the time I lost my cool with Little man while at Butlins and I went running out the restaurant, where I then sat in the rain on a bench and uncontrollably sobbed.
(9) Tell us three things your child or children did to make you feel proud
I have three children so I’ll give you one for each!
Little man (aka A boy with Asperger’s) giving his last 50p from his pocket-money to a homeless person sat outside London Bridge Tube station.
Alice-Sara saving for charity (she has £12 so far) and started saving in December.
Harley my now 2-year-old, saying “I love you mummy”
(10) Tell us one thing that made you proud of yourself
Winning my Mad blog award.
(11) Tell us one challenge you overcame
I over come a host of challenges every day, such as getting my son and myself through his public meltdowns in the middle of the supermarket.
(12) Tell us three things you would like to change about your life from 2011
Get fit, healthy and back in my size 8 jeans (I wasn’t that fit in 2011)!
Sleep better (which means trying to get Little man to do the same)!
To get stronger within myself, a lot stronger than I was in 2011!
Now… to tag some other fabulous bloggers to complete the Meme! Let’s just hope that somehow they haven’t been tagged already.
