I know Mother’s Day was months ago now but during that period, I saw a few fun videos on YouTube where people were doing Q&A’s or videos with their Mum. I love watching these videos as they’re always so interesting so I thought of doing my own little Q&A with my own Mum (obviously… it wouldn’t be with someone else’s would it?) I asked about on Twitter and got some questions so let’s meet my Mum and A some Q’s!
What is your Mum’s favourite blog post you have written?
Linda: I like the ones that are to do with your favourite books and your book reviews, so I can see what books I can steal from your bookcase next.
What was the last thing you did together, just the two of you?
Jenny: Well take the dog for a walk I suppose. Like proper thing?
Linda: I was going to say the Severn Valley Railway but that was all of us.
Jenny: Probably when we’ve been for tea and cake at the tea rooms.
Linda: But we had the dog with us, does that count?
What was Jenny like as a child?
Linda: You were a funny little thing. You used to have phases…
Linda: One being, you used to hide from any man that came into the house.
Jenny: Oh my God yeah I remember that!
Linda: You used to hide behind the door or behind the curtains whenever a man came into the house. Another phase was when you wouldn’t leave my side, you wouldn’t even let me go toilet without hanging about outside.
Jenny: Was that why I got all my toy instruments and started playing them outside the bathroom once when you were in there?
Jenny: Anything nice to say?
Linda: Well you were weird, all kids are weird.
How often do you talk? On the phone / in person etc.
Jenny: Well I still live at home so I see my Mum every day. But I usually speak to her every day, even if I’m away on holiday or at my boyfriend’s parents house for the week. I’m mostly just checking up on the dog haha!
What’s your favourite memory together?
Jenny: You can probably remember more than I can
Linda: Yeah, probably, the first time when you were 5 because it was all new wasn’t it, we’d never been before
Jenny: What about the time you fell off the seat at ice skating?
Linda: Or going on holiday, when we used to go abroad.
Was your Mum always involved/interested in your blog? If not, how did you change that?
Linda: Well yeah I always read them…
Jenny: Anything else to add?
What are your favourite qualities about each other?
Linda: *awkward silence* Well you write a really good letter.
Jenny: What do you mean I write a good letter?
Linda: You’re good at writing, you always word it better.
Linda: And freebie books… And when you cook its always nice… what’s those things you make? Thai fish cakes?
Jenny: So write a good letter, free books and fish cakes, is that it?!
Linda: They’re not really qualities are they? You’re very thoughtful when it comes to Christmas and birthdays.
Jenny: For you it’d be… *another awkward silence*. Books, I mean like you got me into books and had that influence on me so that’s a good quality. You make good stew and dumplings. You’re very giving…
Linda: I think we’ll leave that question there shall we?
