Here are Gen's questions with my answers:

1. What is a typical day like for you?
If it's a school day for Little Red I get up, have my tablets, wait 1/2 hour and then have breakfast. It's then time that Little Red gets up, get him ready and off to school and then it just depends how I'm feeling. If I'm good I'll read my emails and blogs I follow and then potter for the rest of the day and get some rest before picking up Little Red again.  Then it's tea time, hubby baths little red, I read him his story and do his homework with him. He is off to bed for about 7:30pm.  me and hubby watch a program together and I'm usually in bed between 8pm and 9pm.
2. What has been the hardest part of starting/having a blog for you?

The hardest part I find is trying to not write something that someone will take the wrong way.  With a blog I am conscious that not only are followers reading this other people are and something you might say or do could be used against you.
3. What's the last movie you saw in the theater?
I think it was one of the Harry Potter movies.  I don't go very often (as you can tell), I prefer to stay home and watch a dvd in peace and quiet.  I also like the fact that it isn't cold.
4. How do you drink your coffee?
I don't.  I don't drink tea or coffee.
5. How is the weather today where you live, and where DO you live (if you don't mind saying)?
COLD AGAIN!  we have had a lovely week this week and then all of a sudden yesterday the temperature dropped again.  Just in time for all the kids being off school.
6. What is your favorite punctuation, the one you abuse too much but can't stop? (parenthesis, semi-colon, 3 dots, exclamation, uppercase, whatever!)
Mine has to be !
7. Which is your favorite holiday and why?
My favorite holiday would have to be Christmas.  Not for the presents but for all the special little things we do as a family.  
8. Which is your favorite type of flower?
It has to be sweetpeas. I love the colours and the fantastic smell!
9. What is the trait which you admire the most in other people?
Being able to make people laugh.  I've always been a serious (sarcastic at times) person and don't know how to naturally make someone laugh.  I am in envy of people that can.
10. If you could change 1 thing about yourself, what would it be and why?
Although I wish sometimes I could make someone laugh I don't want to change me at all.  We are all the people we are for a reason and I love that everyone is different.
11. Why do you blog?
I blog to feel part of something and to share my enjoyment of things with other people. I have CFS so I can't go out in the evenings like other people. I crochet and craft but apart from my mum I don't know anyone else that does.  It's nice to share and to join in.

  1. There is a little something for you on my blog too.

  2. Thanks for including me, Sue. I'll try to answer your questions the best I can tomorrow. :-)

  3. I'm so surprised that those who've answered my blog tag so far are not coffee drinkers. I've only recently started to myself, and it's only once in a while, and I like tea now too.
    Thanks for participating! Have a great weekend!

    1. My problem is I am addicted to coca cola! I drink juice as well but I can't drink artificial sugars as they make me ill. It's difficult to find drinks these days in with natural sugar. I love the smell of coffee and herbal teas but the taste isn't as good as the smell.
