Friday 5 – Fairy Tales


So, in the world of Becca I like to think of my self as a bit of a fairy princess, so this week’s Friday 5 is quite fitting…

1. In the fairy tale of your life, who is the knight in shining armor?

My gorgeous Dave is my knight in shining armour every day. He picks me up when I’m down, he helps keep me anchored and in general I am a very very lucky girl to have him (you can go vomit now!)

2. In the fairy tale of your life, who is the evil villain?

Cliche as it sounds, I think its myself, in the words of some song I’m sure, I truly am my own worst enemy (and my own biggest critic) but I’m trying to beat the bitch down!

3. In the fairy tale of your life, who is the loyal, comedic sidekick?

Probably my lovely Kazzy Kaz Kaz! Or my beautiful sister Sammi! Both of them provide me with hours of fun and frolics, and I wouldn’t be without them!

4. In the fairy tale of your life, what comes right after “Once upon a time…?”

There was a girl who lived with a lovely boy and they bumbled along making each other laugh…

5. In the fairy tale of your life, who is the fairy godmother?

My gran. The true matriarch in our family. We miss her every day.

Belated Friday 5!!


This weeks Friday 5 is hard!!

In the past month, what was your biggest OOPS?

My biggest oops this month, hrm, probably a stupid work related thing, I was testing and remembered to do everything except write down some bank details… that was really dumb, but what made it worse was I already had them written down, I just didn’t realise until I’d been panicking for an hour!

In the past month, what inspired you to let out your most heartfelt WHEW?

See the previous comment. Thankfully I did have them written down, otherwise it could have been a looong day!

In the past month, what caused you to say, “HUH?”

I struggle to make sense of lots of things 🙂 But it was probably a discussion with Dave when we were talking at cross purposes! It doesn’t help that he talks really quietly too!

In the past month, what influenced the most ZZZZZZZZs?

I’m always sleepy! I had an afternoon nap yesterday for a couple of hours!

In the past month, what was most GRRRRRRRRR-worthy?

My sister had a really rough time, some people were treating her badly and I got seriously angry.  I couldn’t do anything to help which made it worse.

What made you HUH?, GRRRRR! and OOOOPS! this month?

Friday 5 – Cookie Cookie Cookie!!


So, I’m on a diet at the moment, this is gonna make me hungry!!!

1. What is absolutely the best cookie you’ve ever had?

I think it would have to be Farmhouse Cookies!! The recipe can be found here and is delicious, and not too unhealthy cos of the muesli (that’s what I’m saying, and I’m sticking to it!)

2. What is a cookie you really don’t care for?

Funnily enough, despite the above, I’m not overly keen on oatmeal and raisin cookies, though Dave adores them.

3. What are some other cookies you are rather fond of?

I love cookies full stop, particularly chocolate ones! Chocolate in any cookie is goooood.

4. Grocery-store cookies are, of course, never as good as anything that comes out of someone’s kitchen, but what’s a packaged cookie that’s still pretty good?

The ones that come from the bakery section in packs of 5 from tesco (other supermarkets are available) are pretty good!

5. In general, do you think cookies should be chewy and gooey, or should they be crispy and crunchy?

Gooey and chewy all the way baby!

Friday 5 – All things RED


I’ve decided to try and take part in the Friday Five from and this week the theme is RED!

  1. What is your favorite red food?

I think I would have to say Strawberries! And especially all things strawberry flavoured.  My particular favourite (though it’s pink rather than red) is strawberry milkshake

2.  When were you last caught red-handed?

I don’t think I’ve ever done anything that has warranted being caught red handed!

3.  What’s your nicest red article of clothing?

Every girl should own a pair of red shoes, I have a pair that I got for J and Kaz’s wedding and they are the sexiest shoes I’ve ever owned! They have a stiletto heel and a stacked heel.  They are a deep red and I lurve them!

4.  Who’s got the loveliest red hair?

I think I’m gonna have to say Nicole Kidman, I adore her hair.

5.  What are your thoughts on the 2002 Baz Luhrmann film Moulin Rouge!

I’ve never seen it!
