Do you have something you’ve been itching to ask? Maybe something food-related, something a little bit kinky or something completely random? Have fun with it, then be sure to check back next Tuesday for my answer!

1. When the world brings you down, what is your best tip for feeling good about yourself again?

Just slow down and take some time for you, seriously. I’m currently on a two-week blogging hiatus, that now looks to need to be extended to a full month, just because I don’t think two weeks is going to be long enough! I was doing some SEO and deadlink work last night but decided I’d have to have a ‘TMI Wednesday’ instead – it was nearly 1AM by the time I finished! Take some time for yourself, relax, meditate, write, listen to music… find your happy place.

2. What is your favorite room or spot in your home? Why?

Okay, so there are two things here, but they’re both linked so we’ll go through them

Room: My bedroom – I designed it myself, the theme, layout and all. I got creative and thought about things like LED lights behind the headboard instead of bedside lamps, because of space. It’s also rigged to the nines with toys and has play spaces in places you wouldn’t even think to look (removable coat hooks for vertical play space? You betcha). By day, it looks so casual and quaint and monochrome, but by night, with the lights on red….. oh baby,, Christian Grey, eat your heart out! It was inspired by Fifty Shades, though a certified signed photo of Dave Grohl also hangs proudly above Matt’s desk… signed by the man himself!

Spot: Sat on the bed in front of the bedroom aquarium – I have 8 Endlers Livebearers males (“Yellow Top Sword”, if you’re going to Google them!) and blue cherry shrimp. I love my aquariums and I’m very proud of them, they’re my go to and I’m honestly amazed that nobody has sought me out a cuddly blue shrimp yet – girl is obsessed!

3. Are you living up to your expectations?

i’d love to say yes, but no, and that’s why I want to get SEO and deadlinks sorted, so that hopefully my blog can more or less run itself and I can put more of m time and effort elsewhere. I edited some 500+ deadlinks not so long ago and WordPress reverted those pages back to their original state when I updated my plan, so that’s a real pain in the bum! I also want to get fitter and take better care of myself. I had an apple for breakfast with my pancakes. Yay! Progress?

4. What lesson took you the longest to learn?

That you can please some of the people all of the time, or all of the people some of the time, but you cannot please all of the people all of the time! I still haven’t completed my foundation level!

5. What has been the most difficult choice you had to make?

Not being there when my father passed away. I knew how upset I would get and I knew how upset he used to get seeing me upset, I wanted it to be a peaceful time for him, but I was never sure whether it was better than I was there for him, or better that it be peaceful for him. I never knew if I made the right decision, though my brother does often tell me that the end was quite distressing and he’s now glad that I wasn’t.

Bonus: What defines you?

I’m fiercely stubborn and passionate in my pursuit of my dreams! Just ask anyone who knows me, my stubborn streak is my defining characteristic. My Mum has defined me as being like a dog with a locking jaw before because when I want something, I won’t let it go until I’ve got it! I live where I do because I’m tenacious, I married the man I did because I’m stubborn,. Just sayin’, girl goes after what she wants and she doesn’t give up until she’s got it!

That’s it from me for this TMI Tuesday! Join me next week for the next round!

Until next time,

Stay safe & have fun,

Helen xx
