11/ I'd love to write a novel at some point in my life

My Questions:

1. What's your favourite drink? If alcoholic it would have to be Champagne without a doubt, especially Veuve Clicquot, if non alcoholic it would have to be full fat Coke but usually I drink Coke Zero instead
2. If you had £200 to spend on yourself, what would you spend it on right now? I would put it into my New York fund for my 30th in December!
3. What's your favourite season? Spring, I love the warm breeze, seeing all the baby animals and the happy 'spring' feeling that I get
4. What's your favourite colour? PINK - funny that!
5. Who have you been closest to in your life? My Mum, always and my 2 best friends, they are my rocks
6. Do you have a recurring dream? What is it? No recurring dreams, although when I was pregnant I kept dreaming that Alfie would be an alien :-/
7. What sort of bed do you have, and what is on it right now? I have a double bed with a wooden frame that I'm always whacking my shins on! Currently it has a white duvet cover and purple and black pillows
8. What's you favourite meal to cook for yourself? I tend to bake rather than cook, that's the hubbys job! If I had to choose though it would be a medium steak with all the trimmings and a pepper sauce, yummy!
9. Who was your celebrity crush as a teenager? I was obsessed with Boyzone and Ronan Keating, 'back in the day'!
10. What is your secret talent? I don't really have one, how dull!
11. Describe the last time you felt really happy. Holding my baby boy in my arms when he was 1st born, pretty obvious answer really!
