The A to Z of Me

This super Meme has been doing the rounds and the lovely Chantelle from Mama Mummy Mum tagged me in it. So who would like to find out a bit more about me? Well you can now!

A
America is the place I first went abroad without my parents. It was a school exchange trip.....what an opportunity! I loved it but at 13 I was terribly homesick.

B
Boys....I have two of them. Both very similar in many ways but so different in others! They are the love of my life.

C
Children have always featured in my life. Even before I had my own I worked with them and still do.
D
David is my twin brother, he is tall and dark. I am not!

E
Elephants have been my favourite animal for as long as I can remember and I was lucky enough the see them up close on my honeymoon on safari in Kenya.
F
Flowers are beautiful and I'm lucky that the boys and my husband regularly buy them for me. Purple flowers are my favourite.
G
Gillingham in Kent is where I did most of my growing up.

H
Honeymoon was wonderful in Kenya, though hubby was taken ill just before flying home....so we had an extra night there (in a hospital). Holidays seem to be a thing of the past but hopefully not for much longer! Maybe we will get one in 2014!
I
iPhone...what did I do with out it? Mine is surgically attached to me all the time!

J
Jo, that's me.....full name Joanne, but only my parents call me that!

K
knots, I hate them! I can't tie or untie a knot to save my life.

L
Little Jo is what I was known as at school and college and beyond. Because I'm short....just 5ft.

M
Mummy is what I am here for. It took a while....I was 36 yrs old when I became one but I'm loving it and always wanted children of my own.
N
Nan died in 2000 and I still miss her loads. She would have so loved to have known my monkeys....the best nan ever.

O
Oranges.....I can never peel them! 

P
Pasta, I love it and so too do the monkeys......they would eat it every day if I let them! Pasta, Pesto and grated cheese is yummy. Oh and pine nuts too!

Q
Quads.....how cool would it be to have them? Being a twin, I would have quite liked a multiple birth.

R
Rest. I wish the monkeys would rest more! They are full on from dawn till dusk.....they do sleep well every night though, so I can't really complain.

S
Sunday's are our family day, as they are the only day my husband has off each week. If we have nothing planned I do work the odd one but we try to do family stuff whenever we can.
T
Toast tastes so much better when someone else is cooking it! I like mine crisp with marmite on. Not soggy.....yuk!

U
Umbrella's are a thing of the past since having the monkeys.....too difficult to hold pushing a pushchair and quite frankly I kind of don't worry as much as I used to about keeping dry and not spoiling my hair.

V
Very nice ladies encouraged me to start blogging and I have to say I'm loving it. I've met more very nice people through blogging too.

W
Wedding day for my husband and I was the most amazing day ever. I wanted to do the whole thing all over again the next day!
X
X-ray vision would be good wouldn't it?! Mine isn't great to be honest. I'm short sighted....but I actually quite like wearing glasses now. I've worn them since I was 18 months old!

Y
Years seem to fly by even quicker than ever nowadays. It only seems like 5 minutes ago I had our eldest monkey yet he will be 6 next May.

Z
ZZZZZ''s in my own bed are what I like best.....you can't beat sleeping in your own bed can you?
