This has been doing the rounds for kiwi bloggers,

What is your current obsession?
Um let me think, I have many. I am totally obsessed with knitting, sewing, gardening. We have just built a carport, so are finishing that off and I have spent a number of hours planning our new front garden.

What is your weirdest obsession?

I wouldn't call anything I do as weird, others might think that but I certainly don't. I have this weird obsession of browsing the net looking at yarn porn (note I said YARN lol)

What are you wearing today?
Track pants, long sleeved t shirt and cardy - boring

If you could change 1 thing about yourself, what would you change?
My weight

What would you eat for your last meal?
BBQ feast with seafood, yummy chicken, a sirloin steak and honey glazed veges. Of course there will be a nice bottle of wine, then mud cake with ice cream, choc sauce and cream. Oh my god, yum

What’s the last thing you bought?
Knitting needles - funny that

What are you listening/watching right now?
Watching Gok.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Prague - love everything about that city. Would go back in an flash. Oops I probably should have said Windsor to see my niece that was born earlier in the year.

Which language do you want to learn?
I would love to learn French or Spanish.

What do you love most about where you currently live?
While a lot of people hate Auckland, I love it. I live out West, beaches and bush are only a matter of minutes away. Our house looks out to the Waitakere Ranges. I can take Cara to see horses just up the road, and I like the hippy feel of where we live. People are still quite friendly here.

What is your favorite colour?
I have a few, purple, black, blue, green and all the mixtures in between.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
My new gloves that I knitted. Other than that nothing, trying to lose weight so not a big fan of my wardrobe at the moment. Although I am quite pleased to be able to fit into my fat jeans again hehe

What were you doing ten years ago?
Working hard, partying.

Describe your personal style?
Dress wise, boring, but I long for it to be quirky. I have started sewing so hopefully I can start making my own clothes to fit my style. I don't like a lot of the fashion that's out there.

If you had $300 now, what would you spend it on?
um due to my current obsession, yarn and a wee bike for Cara.

What are you going to do after this?
Knit LOL

What are your favourite films?
Anything with Hugh Grant, Empire Records, LOTR

What inspires you?
My wee girls giggle, creative people, art, nature, my garden

Your favourite books?
Cross stitch series, Clan of the Cave Bear Series, am wanting to get into Vamp books again. Enjoyed Twilight as well

Do you collect anything?
Apart from yarn, plants, would love to collect art (not just paintings). I love love love visiting galleries

What makes you follow a blog?
Creative people, lovely photo's, getting to know someone.

What was the most enjoyable thing you did today?
Playing outside with Cara and Aaron, rolling around on the floor with Cara while she lost the plot with the giggles.

What is your favourite FO and why?
My fingerless gloves even though they are too big, but it's the first thing I have knitted that's for me :)
