ABC - Facts about ME! #OSBLOG

A while ago, a friend tagged me in a Facebook post - ABCs of ME. There was a word prompt for each letter of the alphabet and you had to share your answers. I saved the post as a reminder to myself to share my answers at a later date...well that later date is today. I am linking up with Elaine from Miss Elaine-ous Life, as part of her Old School Blogging series. 

Here we go...
A- Age: 32 
B- Biggest Fear: I have a few fears and one of them would be losing all my photos. I have A LOT of photos...A LOT. I love taking photos and have many I will cherish forever - of loved ones who are no longer with us, and of my children/family, however most of these cherished memories are stored on my laptop or on an external hard drive. I really need to start printing them into albums/photo books, just in case! 
C- Current Time: 12:47pm 
D- Drink you last had: cup of 'Bell' Tea
E- Easiest Person To Talk to: my Mum & my best friends - love my girls!
F- Favourite Song: Like I'm Gonna Lose You - Meghan Trainor ft. John Legend
G- Grossest Memory: when I was younger, we were building a new brothers and I were playing in the dirt piles (as you do), and they thought it would be funny to put worms down the back of my top. The feeling of slimy, wriggly worms down my top sends shivers down my spine (eww!). I'm actually grossed out writing this...since that day, I have HATED worms - it's actually another one of my biggest fears (thanks to my 'awesome' brothers)
H- Hometown: Kaikohe 
I- In love with: my partner. 

J- Jealous Of: my parents and Aunty, who are currently on the Queen Victoria cruise ship, travelling around the Mediterranean. Oh-so jealous!
K- Killed Someone? No. 
L- Longest Relationship: my current relationship.
M- Middle Name: Dawn - it's also my Mum's middle name and my Dad's biological mothers middle name (we only found out who she was the day my daughter was born), and my daughter has the Māori word for Dawn as her middle name. 
N- Number of Siblings: Four brothers - two older and two younger
O- One Wish: to put a stop to Domestic Violence - a very sad and hot topic in New Zealand, Australia and around the world. 
P- Person who you last called: Dental Clinic (I missed their call) - had to reschedule my appointment because my Dentist is going to be away! Now I have to wait another 2 weeks. 
Q- Question you’re always asked: "Where's the/my...?" 
R- Reason to smile: my family and our new home. I love them both!
S- Song you last sang: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! Good ol' Disney channel
T- Time you woke up: 2:15am, then 5:50am, stayed in bed until 7:30am though.
U- Underwear Color: teal
V- Vacation Destination: England, London! It's my dream destination - hopefully one day I will get there.
W- Worst Habit: biting my nails, especially when I am anxious. 
X- X-rays you’ve had: Arm (hairline fracture), lots of ankles (due to playing soccer), leg (Osteomylitis), and chest (Pneumonia), oh and teeth. 
Y- Your favorite food: Steak. I love Summer fruits too...bring on Summer!
Z- Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius - "Full of energy and confidence. Sagittarius is the ultimate free spirit: optimistic, open-minded and ambitious. You’re happiest in wide-open spaces with plenty of adventure and excitement. You juggle a million projects, hobbies and friends. The more, the merrier! Sagittarius is forever pursuing a super-sized goal. Even when you fail, nothing can keep you down. You’ll chalk it up as a life lesson and inspire everyone with tales of your experience. As the sign of wisdom and truth, Sagittarius loves to “tell it like it is,” especially when it makes people laugh".

  1. Ha ha - I bite my nails too! Loved reading this :-)

    1. Hope you are going to do it too Claire, would love to get to know YOU better too :)

  2. I fear losing my tons of photos too! What a beautiful photo of you and your kids. Thanks for linking up! :)

    1. Thank you Elaine. I often have panic attacks about loosing my photos and when I feel like this, it's a reminder to myself to back up my photos. Have a great weekend.

  3. That's my most asked question too! And the photos thing... *shudder*.
    Love the story about the name Dawn :)

    1. I think a lot of Mums can relate to that question too! ha ha!
      I love our name story too! Something that we will cherish and pass on to our future generation.

  4. Old school blogging is so much fun! It was great learning more about you Charlene. I'm also a poor sleeper - it's either kids or me. I don't know who anymore. I think the kids just broke me. And I'm guessing you won't be starting a worm farm anytime soon!!! x

    1. ewwww just reading the word "worm farm" grossed me out Bron! haha Thanks for stopping by lovely! Great to have you here, and I hope you sleep well tonight :)

  5. I bite my nails too! Tried for years and years to stop - only to start again as soon as they started looking nice :) I enjoyed learning about you. This was a fun post.

  6. I know you will hate to hear this, but when I was a kid, I used to collect "pet" worms that I would put in the sand shaker with grass (and then let go when it was time to go inside). I named every one of them Salami, though I have no idea why now.... Go fig, right?

  7. I love steaks too, and summer fruits! Mangos are already in the shops here in Australia .. yay!!

  8. I remember these old school blogging questions, loved them! It's so cool to find out more about other bloggers! EW! Worms down your top, I can understand why you would remember that one! I have shivers thinking about them running down my back! UG!
