Foxy 8

There doesn’t seem to be as much of me in the blog of late so when Miss Kate started this little one why not join in. A couple of weeks ago was bloggers without make up and have been thinking about it . Although confrontational at the initial thought I have been pondering why that is. It is not that villagers are chasing me away with pitch forks so why does posting photos seem like such a big deal – what message does that send to my daughter. So anyway I got over myself and I am going to refrain from saying derogatory things like ‘ignore the bags under the eyes’

Zoo   Wiggles 059

1. Favourite meal to eat? Thai and Indian or anything with chocolate, yes please.

2. Do you have a quirky eccentricity? Nothing that sounds as exotic as an eccentricity. Um I don’t like fruit. I wont drive in between 2 trucks if I can help it. I talk to myself a lot. I always say orange if I mean green. I think that the card is almost as important as the present. Like to eat something sweet at the end of every meal.

3. My middle name? I don’t have one, Dad just decided that was just another thing you had to learn how to spell – high hopes. Both kids have middle names that start with J and for some reason that seemed important at the time,

4. I am passionate about doing the best job that I can for my family. If they can look back and think that they were supported and loved that is enough for me.

5. Thongs or Birkenstocks? Leftover from being a Queensland girl thongs for sure, even in Melbourne mine get a work out for as long as humanly possible and ignore my blue icy toes.

6. Who was I before I had kids? Pretty much the same - work wise still have the same job working from home. There was definitely more money and time but much less laughter. There is certainly confidence that has come for me as a mother.

7. Have I ever been arrested? No, usually a rule follower

8. This weekend I will have? Early morning swimming lessons every Saturday, it is not like there is going to be a sleep in anyway and then kid wrangling and working. Finally got the car radio working and enjoyed playing CD’s that brought back lots of long forgotten memories and sang badly and loud.

I talk to myself alot too, and I don't have a middle name either, for the same reason. We're practically sisters ;)

You are pretty. You look a bit like a friend of mine :)

That is a gorgeous photo of you and the kids, and I don't like driving between 2 trucks either. Not all that keen on being alongside even ONE truck when I think about it.

Lovely photo Cindy, I hear you on the early morning swimming lessons. My hubby decided 8am lesson was a good time and since then he has worked every Saturday so I have to drag myself up at some ungodly hour to get there on time:-(

Sally said...

Your so gorgeous and clearly very funky. Loving that hat!!!
So wonderful to get to know you a little more. I am so looking forward to one day meeting up... we can go and have Indian for dinner together - it is my favourite too!!!

Gina said...

So great to read some more about you Cindy. Curious about the saying-orange-meaning-green thing, i have a few of those word things going on too! I do love learning more about the person behind the blog - and I think you look terribly funky in your photo (and in real life!).

Mookah said...

Mmmmm...what is that word substitute thingy. My sister does it all the time, but she inserts the word microwave! "Can you put the dirty clothes in the microwave?"

Shes only in her late 30's....my god...will I be next?

Kate said...

Oh yay! Thanks heaps for playing Ms Cindy! Your photo is ace and I loved reading all your answers so much. X

good on you for popping your fresh face on the blog. you look young, pretty and happy to me. great to hear some more about you too, love your quirks. oranges start off being green so can't see a problem with that being confusing somehow. lucky you'r not a driving instructor xx

Angie said...

I really enjoyed reading this post, all the while marvelling at the fact you look A LOT like a friend of mine (any relatives living in Paris at the moment?)

And those dresses in the more recent posts are divine!

Cute pic. :D I am seriously unphotogenic to the point that even dh wonders what's up, so any reasonably decent pics of me up are few and far between, lol.

Lovely pic Cindy - you look so happy.
