Twitter friends tag #2: May 2019
Hey everyone! I hope you are good? Welcome to another Twitter Friends Tag post. This is a collaboration with my blogging friends on Twitter, where we thought of three different questions each.
These posts are such a great way of getting to know more about people. I used to be quite shy about answering questions, but after receiving a few blog awards, I decided that I enjoyed thinking about the answers after all. If you are ever short of journal prompts, or suffer writer’s block, finding a Q&A blog could provide the inspiration you need.
I am lucky to have found such a supportive group of people on Twitter. There is good and bad about social media, but I do find that Twitter is the best place for bloggers and vloggers.
These are the others taking part in this fun tag:
If you would like to answer any of the questions, you can leave me a comment, send me a message or make a new post on your blog then leave me the link.
So, without further ado, let’s get to the Q&A …
Q1: What is one thing you do every day to look after yourself?
I am trying to drink more water. The best way for me to remember is to drink water with my lunch and evening meal.
Q2: Who is your ultimate celebrity crush?
No contest – Martin Shaw. He was Doyle in The Professionals and more recently Judge John Deed and the George Gently. He hasn’t always acted in crime drama though – he was also a doctor in the ITV series, Always and Everyone.
Q3: What is one thing you do to keep your mindset positive?
Q1: What are some healthy foods you eat regularly?
We changed to oat drink instead of dairy milk a long time ago. I definitely prefer the taste of it in my tea.
Q2: What’s in your bag?
Which bag? 😂
I have bags for everything! – Such as, my rucksack for days out, which has my camera gear in it. I have bags with various crochet projects in too.
Then, I got this really cute pencil case for my birthday and it’s got some of my fineliners in. It’s much easier for me to grab the colour I need because I can see it straightaway; I don’t have to rummage through my pens to find what I want.
Q3: When you feel yourself starting to burn out, how do you cope?
I just keep out the way of the people and crochet or do some art.
I think generally it’s important to know your limits. You need to be assertive enough to say no, or to ask if something can wait. Bigger tasks can be broken down into smaller steps, and lists help you keep track.
Q1: What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about keeping old skills alive such as handwriting and crochet. It’s my worry that they will fizzle out eventually in our digital world.
Q2: What superhero would you be?
I would visit all the children’s oncology wards and cure all the children of cancer. They would be 100% healthy with no side effects from the cancer or chemo. Childhood cancer has such a devastating effect on the whole family. It would be the best thing to be able to take away all of the pain and suffering so they could have a normal life again.
Q3: What’s the best place you’ve visited?
We had a holiday on the canals of Birmingham years ago, and it was one of the most incredible places to visit.
I also think that there are some amazing parts of the Peak District, near where I live, such as Mam Tor.
Q1: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I would like to visit Venice to see the canals and eat Italian food.
Q2: Where’s your head at 90% of the time?
All over the place, unless I can get absorbed into a craft project.
Q3: Who’s your biggest influence?
My Aunty P was a huge influence on me and she is greatly missed.

Q1: What are three things you can’t leave home without?
Keys, lip-balm and phone
Q2: What did you watch last on YouTube?
This one of a squirrel
Q3: What’s your screensaver/lock screen photo on your phone?
This one of me making a fuss of Maeve
