A to Z of Me

A to Z of Me

I am sure I have done one of these before but I searched on my blog and I couldn’t find it. I read Rachel Swirl’s A to Z of me and thought, even if I have done one before, I would have another go. Some of the answers are sure to be different.

A is for animals. All the animals. I have always loved them and, living on a farm just gives me a very, very good excuse.

B is for blogger. I have been blogging since 2013 and, what started out a s a pastime has spiralled into much more. I love it.

C is for cake. I love baking but cake is cake and I am not fussy about eating someone else’s. Chocolate cake is a firm favourite but I also love fruit cake. Basically, any cake.


D is for dogs. I actually have a dog wish list and dog names for those on my list. You’ve heard of mad cat women? I’m a mad dog woman and would love to have loads of little wet noses wagging their tails for me.

E is for Emma. It is also the same letter as my daughter’s name which is funny because, unless people write letters to us using our full name, I am destined to be one of those annoying mothers who opens all of her children’s post. Oops.

F is for farm and farmer. The farm is our life. We live and work here but when we are not at the farm, I know Hubster especially is thinking about it and we talk about it all the time.


G is for goats. I got my two little pygmy goats almost a year ago and they really are the most delightful little things. So friendly and lovely.

H is for hens. I love them. I don’t actually like them pecking but they are comical creatures and who doesn’t love a fresh egg?

I is for incubator. Similar to H, I love hatching chicks. I bought an automatic incubator last year and, due to me being over excited, I out the eggs in before the temperature was right. It was great fun but not a huge egg to chick ratio so I am hoping for a better success rate this year.

J is for journalist. The job I had before becoming a full time mum and farmer’s wife.

K is for kids. I love my children so much. They really are my life.

L is for loving. I like to think of myself as a loving and loyal person.


M is for my man. We have our moments but he really is the best thing that ever happened to me and I like to think we are soul mates.

N is for neurotic. I admit I do have neurotic tendencies. I think hormones play a big part so pregnancy and post-natal neurosis really is a thing here. My family probably deserve a medal for putting up with me.

O is for olives. One of my favourite snacks. If I had to choose between sweet and savoury, I would choose savoury every time and olives hit the mark. I like ones marinated in chilli the best with a glass if red wine.

P is for Pepsi Max. My favourite drink.

Q is for queens and kings. A subject matter I adore and the names of which I have chosen for our children.

R is for rabbits. I have my name down on some baby bunnies for Spring as the children love them and do you know what? so do I.

S is for shoes. My shoe problem is nowhere near as bad as it used to be when I was younger, used to go out quite a lot and before I had children. I still appreciate a good shoe though.

T is for tiredness. I am heavily pregnant as I write this so this may be the reason but since having children, I am always tired. I suppose it comes with the job title.

U is for university. I studied English Literature with Theology and Religious Studies at Chester and I loved it. The studying, the life and the city. I still love going to Chester now.

V is for vodka. What I enjoy with a Pepsi Max although I have been neglecting this love for quite a while now.


W is for wellies. I can’t live on a farm without them. I have been through my fair sshare-especially fashion ones. The funniest were a pair of high heeled welllies. They didn’t last long.

X is for X-ray. What else? I broke my ankle and my wrist when I was younger and, if you count ultra sounds too, I have had hundreds.

Y is for yellow which, along with pink are my favourite colours.

Z is for zoo-my own little petting zoo which is coming along nicely.

So that is me.

  2. I do accept as true with all of the concepts you’ve offered for your post.
    They are really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are too
    short for novices. May you please prolong them a
    bit from next time? Thank you for the post.

  3. My family members all the time say that I am killing my time here at web, except I
    know I am getting familiarity everyday by reading
    such pleasant articles or reviews.
