Oh My Blog is a monthly interview series, where fellow bloggers come together to answer a series of questions on a specific theme. This is a chance to get acquainted with a whole range of bloggers, some of whom you may not have heard of before, and learn a little more about them!
This month, the theme is Mums (because it’s Mother’s Day soon!) and we’re hosting Angela from the Life of Spicers.
Introduce us to your mum. What’s her name? What does she do? Reveal her age if you dare!
My Mum is known as Kay, she’s retired now and would not be very happy if I shared her age so I will respect her privacy. When I was growing up, she referred to herself as a housewife so I shall do the same.
What’s the one thing your mum always used to say to you?
No one thing sticks out in my mind. She was always saying, “get your coat”.
Someone’s playing your mum in a film. Who is it and why?
I’m not sure, perhaps Angela Lansbury because she has a sweet nature.
She’s won the lottery. What’s the first thing your mum buys for herself?
Probably some new craft supplies.
What embarrassing story about you does she always tell when you meet new people?
She doesn’t. Sometimes the photos of me as a child might come out after a while.
What are your plans for Mother’s Day this year?
We always go out for a meal on Mother’s Day, although sometimes we go out on the Saturday.
What’s her favourite TV show at the moment?
She likes Can’t Pay We’ll Take It Away for some reason.
What’s the biggest or most important thing that your mum inspired you to do?
Your round at the bar! What’s your mum drinking?
Probably a cup of tea knowing my Mum.
What’s the biggest different between you and your mum?
She worries about everything and I don’t so much.
Most important question of the lot. What is your mum’s stance on 50 Shades of Grey? Does she love it? Hate it? Not even know what it is?
Hahaha she doesn’t know what it is.
What’s your favourite memory of your mum?
She was always there when I was growing up.
What do you think your mum was like as a kid?
I think she was quite strong willed and independent.
Cast your mind back a bit; what was the thing you did as a child or teenager that made your mum the angriest she has ever been with you?
I had my first child at 18. I know she wasn’t very happy about that! She still supported me though.
Finally, what’s the BEST piece of advice your mum ever gave to you?
That I didn’t have to settle for something if it wasn’t right.
