Good morning folks. It’s been a hot minute since I did a Q&A around here where the questions came from actual people on Twitter (as opposed to my Random Question Generator Q&A) and my blog followers have grown quite considerably since then. So if you’re new around here, first of all, hi! I’m so glad you could join us and second of all, here’s a little bit more about me and I’ll try and make my answers as interesting as possible but I can’t promise anything.
Although it’s not something I frequently talk about on my blog, I do find the concept of dating interesting and I always like hearing about the ways people have met their partners. My own love-life and past relationships are also something I rarely talk about. You’ll probably know that I have a boyfriend but that’s about it and you certainly won’t know about some of the experiences I’ve had with ex-boyfriends in the past! Although not all of them positive, I feel like each experience I’ve had since I started “going out” with people (literally why was it called “going out with”?) has taught me something and left me with a lot of memories to look back on to either smile or cringe at. Either way, it was my life, my experiences and I’m grateful for them.
Father’s Day is literally round the corner so if you haven’t already, now is probably the time to grab some gifts for the Dad, Granddad or Father figure in your life! We’ve never really put a huge emphasis on Father’s Day in our family but I always make sure I get my Dad a few gifts, to show him that I love him and appreciate everything he’s done for me over the years. If gifts aren’t your thing, maybe you can just make sure the Father figure in your life knows how much you care in some other way. Anyway, here are the gifts I’ll be giving my Dad this Sunday for Father’s Day and some suggestions if you’re stuck for ideas yourself!

You would have heard me talk about it time and time again, how I’m addicted to productivity. I have this incessant need to be doing something productive 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I work for myself and I work from home, so I know that has certainly impacted this shift in me because if I don’t work and work hard… I don’t get money. I can’t afford to slack. I can’t afford to have down days. But I also can’t afford to burn myself out by pushing and pushing and pushing myself. I’m well aware that we all need down-time and a period in our day to relax. I know that. So why can’t I implement that for myself?
A little while ago, I ran a poll on Twitter asking what kind of posts you’d like to see more of from me. I’m sure most of the people who voted just voted on the general kind of blog posts they like reading from anyone – not me specifically (I don’t think I’m that special) but still, I like to take on board what people enjoy reading and try and cater to that. One of the most popular options was Disney. Which surprised me a little bit. I know there’s a humongous Disney community on Twitter but there’s also a humongous amount of people who aren’t that bothered about Disney or who like it but wouldn’t necessarily go out of their way to read Disney related blog posts.
Alright, alright, alright how are we doing? It’s March already. March. March. However, we’ll be stepping into Spring very soon, the flowers will be blooming (will they? With all this snow?) and it’s almost Easter. Which means it’s almost time to send myself into a chocolate coma. My favourite time of year! In all honesty, I do love this time of year. I’m not a fan of Summer but I do like being able to spend some time reading in my garden and smelling the Spring air without it being too blisteringly hot. I always find I’m really productive at this time of year as well. Maybe it’s something about Spring being a new season, a new start that ignites that motivation in me. So let’s see what I’m hoping to achieve this month!
In terms of my hobbies and interests, I feel like things have turned pretty static. Although for some people, it’s totally fine to have a select few hobbies that they rarely stray from throughout their entire life is absolutely fine, for me, I feel like I’m in a place now where I need to expand and broaden my hobby related horizons a little bit. Of course reading will always be my biggest and number 1 hobby, nothing will ever take that away from me (I hope) and despite making some money from blogging now, I still more or less consider it a elaborate and time-consuming interest of mine. I love Yoga and watching films and TV shows but that’s more or less where my hobbying ends. Blogging, reading, TV and Yoga. It’s not a very diverse list is it?
