The A-Z of Me

I have seen LOADS of these around the crafty blog land today so thought I'd join in...

A. Age: 31

B. Bed size: Double, though I REALLY want a European queen size as with an OH who sleeps like he's about to go diving & 3 cats sharing it with me it feels way too small

C. Chore that you hate: All of them! But top of the list is cleaning the toilets, with 3 males in the house including a 4year old whose easily distracted I'm sure you can understand.

D. Dogs: Love dogs but havent got the patience to house train so we have 3 cats instead.

E. Essential start to your day: A quick look on facebook & twitter to wake me up before I have to crawl out of bed, makes me feel like I'm starting the day a little bit more prepared.

F. Favorite color: Black, but my regulars all knew that though didnt they ;-)

G. Gold or Silver: I detest the modern yellowy gold, it looks cheap & tacky to me I much prefer old gold, pink or white gold. I mainly wear silver, it goes with everything :-)

H. Height: 5’4" on a good day

I. Instruments you play: I can play my chords on a guitar, make noise with a Jewish harp, play a couple of tunes on a piano but thats as far as I can get.

J. Job title: I'm a domestic engineer

K. Kids:  2 lads age 4 & 12, & the OH

L. Live: In my own little world.

M. Must haves:  Pepsi, computer/laptop, my dressing gown, photos

N. Nicknames: Well as most of you know I'm usually known as K, my Mom & OH call me KT due to my first & middle initials, my OH also calls me "Woman" to which I normally respond "what, Man."
A good friend of mine calls me Kirsty-Lirsty, & to everyone else I'm either Kirst or Kirsty.

O. Overnight hospital stays: I was in hospital over night when I had both my kiddies (well, for several nights really), & also for 2 operations on my neck at about the age of 4 having infected Lymph Nodes removed.

P. Pet peeves: Whats the maximum number of letters Blogger will hold, lol. Ok top of the list are people making noises while eating, I dont mean crunching when eating cornflakes etc, they cant be helped, its things like slurping noises. People yelling LOUDLY at their kids, especially when right in their faces, for gods sake, they're children, they will play up, do things wrong etc, its part of growing up, tell them off by all means so that they learn its wrong but not in a way that could mentally scar them. People not emailing me back/replying within a couple of days unless theres a damn good excuse, even if its just to acknowledge its been received, its called politeness people! Saying your broke when you clearly are not, now I realise everyone has a different definition to "I'm broke" but to me it means "after bills go out, or even before then, I have no money left to spend on anything except essentials (& I mean essentials to actually continue living)". If you say your broke & then go buy a luxury item such as a new game then you were not broke, you might have been saving but you were definately not broke. Oh dear, think I better stop now.

Q. Quote from a movie:  I never remember quotes from movies, I dont know if its because my memory is so bad or that movies dont matter enough to me, probably both.

R. Rhubarb or Custard: Both, in sweetie form :-D

S. Save or spend: I would like to save but at the moment its not an option, well, except for things like right now I'm saving for Christmas (spending it as & when I see a great deal on the xmassy things I need to get), then it'll be saving for Birthdays, then Summer Hols, etc etc etc

T. Tea or Coffee:  Coffee, slightly milky with 2 sugars please. I have been known to drink fruity teas, & if its the only think on offer then strong black tea - it almost doesnt taste like dish water when like this.

U. Underwear: Sports bra are a MUST when out jogging, otherwise its pretty black bra's with boxer style knickers, or even better, comfy boxer style ones that go over my tum - they make me feel comfy & secure.

V. Vegetable you hate: Courgettes, Marrow, Turnips & Swede, bleughhhhhhh, though the first 2 I can hide the flavour of normally in a tomatoy sauce.

W. What makes you run late: when ~I put something down or "safe" then cant find it.

X. X-Rays you’ve had: I think I've only ever had an X-ray on my teeth.

Y. Yummy food that you make: All of it, how dare anyone suggest other wise :-O lol.

Z. Zoo animal:  Bats, I love the bat cave at Chester Zoo & my dream job would be to work somewhere like that & be able to handle the bats (only when necessary ofc but if one wants to come hang off me then who would I be to stop it!)

Feel free to copy the titles onto your own blog but PLEASE leave a link in the comments so I can come have a nosey :-)


  1. Kirsty..I love your list!
    This so much fun.
    Hugs xx

  2. OMG - how could I forget the broke one? That's one of mine too! When you see on the news these people complaining about the recession and they are all in designer gear, dripping in gold with every modern gadget going surrounding them - I just want to head butt the screen! The recession hasn't really affected us as we never had much dosh anyway and to be honest don't need much to be happy. Makes me SCREAAAAAM! I have a couple of friends very much like you descriobe, couple of holidays a year, all mod cons, out every weekend boozing it up but the poor darlings are soooo broke. Pfft. People EXPECT to much these days and think they are entitled to luxuries - if they can't have them, they are deprived.

    Getting off soap box now.

    And am sooo nicking the domestic engineer title :D

  3. Great list, amazed by how many of your answers would be the same for me. This obviously means I don't have to bother doing my own now :-P x

  4. I too like the domestic engineer title - sheer genius! Loving your list K - get to see a little more of you - which is awesome!

  5. Really interesting post, and lovely to find out more about you!
