The 5-5-5 Award

First, thank you so much for my lovely 5-5-5 award, Sally! Now the kids are back at school (yaayyy), I have a few more minutes to breathe, so here goes:

5 questions and 5 answers –

1. Where were you 5 years ago?

Unfortunately, I was into my third month in hospital at the behest of my cheeky son who decided not to give mommy an easy pregnancy. After all that, he still arrived six weeks early!

2. What was on your to-do list today?

Day’s still young, but I managed to:

Get the kids ready for the first day of school (yaayyy again!)
Get myself to work reluctantly!
Later, I hope to:
Get some shopping done.
Get home, put kids to bed (hopefully without the shouting match it involves)
Write some more (hope springs eternal)

3. What 5 snacks do you enjoy?

Chocolate, of course!
Cake, hmmmm cake!
Werthers (both chewy & original)

4. What 5 places have you lived?

Boring answers coming up:
East London
Er, that’s it!

5. 5 more bloggers

Hmmm, this is always a difficult one. If you haven't already been nominated and you’ve taken the time to read my scribblings, I think you deserve an award (if you have a blog), so consider yourself nominated!

Have a lovely day, everyone!


  1. Cheeky son! My oldest daughter was four weeks early - gave us a rather big surprise let me tell you. :-)

  2. Kids, eh? Don't know what son was in hurry for anyway! Daughter went the other way and took her time - 12 days overdue!

  3. Great answers, Maya. Funny we've Kent and Africa in common!

  4. Africa! Not what I'd call boring. It sounds exciting to me. I've loved reading your answers. Now I have no excuse to post mine ... late, as usual!
