Hey Twisties,

I haven’t heard from TMI Tuesday Blog yet today so unfortunately I can’t bring you today’s questions, though I have bought you questions from an old post on 05th December 2017 instead. Once I hear from TMI Tuesday Blog then I will bring you today’s questions, along with my answers. For now though, enjoy!

How To Play TMI Tuesday

TMI Tuesday is a series of questions generated by TMI Tuesday Blog. It is a great way to meet other bloggers and to share some personal thoughts and experiences. It is important to remember that there are no right or wrong answers to these questions, only the answers of the author –  and that’s part of what makes this tag so awesome!

Send Me Your Questions!

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!

And now, onto the questions…

1. What do you find sexiest in a woman?

Oh god, girls who like to laugh are my weakness. But can laugh at themselves, not at other people. If she’s down to earth and kind of jittery too, I’m done for.

2. What do you find least sexy in a man?

Arrogance. If he thinks he’s God’s gift to women, honestly it makes me want to vomit in my mouth. I much prefer a Dad bod who smells of some cheap aftershave from Avon than a buff boyfriend who wreaks of the back of Boots. Laundry detergent is my absolute favourite smell on a guy, fact! Not bathing in it, obviously, but if he smells like clean laundry and he’s kind? We’re halfway there. If he loves dogs, he’s got a nice sense of humour and at least open-minded… well, best book us a chapel!

3. Have you ever been the other woman or man? Would you do it again?

Yeah I have, twice, and no I wouldn’t. Being the other woman absolutely fucking sucks and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. You get all these promises and declarations and you feel incredible and then when push comes to shove, you’re the bad guy, the skank who won’t leave him alone, the relationship-breaker. It’s worse than them having kids because often they wait until they’re completely alone to message you and they only ever care to talk about one thing. If you weren’t putting it out, you know that they woudn’t be here. You’re disposable, convenient, worthy until you’re worthless, don’t do that to yourself. You might think you’re better than his spouse but that’s only the case until you slip up or they patch things up, then you’re disposable and he’ll drop you like a bag of trash down the chute without even looking back to make sure you didn’t get stuck halfway. Want that? Then know your worth.

Not long ago I got chatting to a guy on Slowly and he wanted to move to Telegram, so I agreed. A few days in he mentioned his wife being in bed asleep – I didn’t wait another hour before I dropped him. If they’re not polyamorous and open with their partners now then it’s no deal from me. I deserve and am worthy of at least that level of respect.

4. Who puts more into a romantic relationship you or your significant other?

I’d say we’re even. I’m more of an “acts of service” and “quality time” kind of person, and Matt is more “giving/receiving gifts”. I run the home and make time for ‘just because’, and Matt spoils me rotten. So yeah, I don’t think it’s who puts more in, it’s just how we put in.

5. Do you have a “work wife” or “office husband”?

I met my husband in the office, does that count? We used to sit back to back and hit one another with plastic rulers or fire elastic bands at one another whenever we got the chance. 17 years later, we still have rubber band battles. I never hit him though, I hit his screen or the pen he’s using. Why hurt your opponent when you can unnerve them instead? 😉

Bonus: Are you in a healthy relationship? What makes you think so?

You know, I think all relationships have some room for improvement, but I think so fundamentally, yes. Our communication is generally good, we both contribute around the home, we laugh a lot, we listen to one another, we don’t make tea or coffee for ourselves without offering the other, we still have a great sex life and we flirt and tease All. The. Time. We could be physically healthier and more organised but all things considered, I think we do okay.

Bonus, bonus: Is the “work spouse” strictly a U.S. American anomaly (they do spend an insane amount of hours at work)? One study found 32% of Americans admitted to having a work spouse.

No, not at all. Matt had an office spouse and honestly it never even bothered me. She’s a lovely lady, cared about me as much as she cared about him, even told me to whoop his ass at one time of day because he was working too hard! I’ve met some of his colleagues and I just do not care to get jealous; I know what I am and who I am, so if Matt did stray then she must be doing something really, really fucking special. Matt knows what he would lose if he ever did stray, he knows which side his bread is buttered and so he stays. Honestly and for most of the time, when he was in the office, Matt would rather break away and text me about his problems instead. Now that he’s working from home he just leans on the bedroom door frame that’s normally between us and tells me anyway – I AM the work spouse, AND the home spouse! Haha.

1. Would you rather live in a real haunted house or a gingerbread house?

I actually used to live in a haunted house, so that was kind of cool. Rumour has it that my childhood bedroom was haunted and my parents told the spirit that it could stay as long as it didn’t harm me. A few spooky things happened, but it never harmed me so it got to stay. I do remember seeing a great big apparition once though, like a see-through white face with Kiss make-up on that appeared and disappeared a few seconds later. Never forgotten it.

2. One practical use for your belly button is _____ .

It’s a nook to rest my book when I’m reading – seriously!

3. Do you trust birds? If not, why not?

Yeah, I’m like Snow White. I’m friendly with a robin who I’m sure is a messenger from my Dad. Also I grew up with chickens and ducks and I used to blow on their cheeks and send them off to sleep, so yeah I’m good with birds. Here I am chilling with my Mum with a tiny t-rex fast asleep on my chest! 

I do seriously want to hold a falcon or an owl though. My brother has but, I didn’t get to. Oh to get get close to a Peregrine falcon. We get them wild around here but I’d love to see one up close. 

4. What’s wrong with you?

The right half of me is basically broken, which is useful because I’m right-side dominant. It is what it is. I’ve learned to do some things with my left side but manage a steak is not one of them, and write neatly would be another. Even my OT admitted that was probably never going to happen, very early on!

5. Would you rather be a millionaire but NOT have friends or family or be broke but have friends and family?

Oh keep me as I am. A few grand would be useful right now but I love entertaining so much that I’d rather have basic and people to share it with than have everything and have to enjoy it all on my own. What I lack in money I make up for in moments shared, yada yada.

That’s it from me for this TMI Tuesday! Join me next week for the next round. Do you have any questions for me for next week? Don’t forget to leave them in the comments below!

Until next time!

  1. Acts of service are so important in a relationship–well for me. I prefer it over gifts.

    Your recounting of the apparation in your haunted house gave me goosebumps

    Little chick photo–Awwww!

    1. Absolutely, I think I’m the same. Breakfast in bed is probably the way to my heart, I’m too easily pleased lol.

      It was a spooky one for sure, but I didn’t come to any harm so there’s that.

      They were cute. We hatched them from eggs, ducks and quiails too. We had bees for a long time as well.
