Have a laugh on me

We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

I’m not really that sweet but it seems someone disagrees


I don’t think I’d describe myself as a sweet person – adjectives that suit me more include loyal, honest, sarcastic, sensitive, dry witted and impatient.

However, maybe there’s a hint of sweetness in here somewhere because I have just been given a Super Sweet Blog Award.

To be honest I really do adore these blogger-nominated awards because they can reveal so much about a person.

For example, the lovely lady who gave me this Rita @ The Crafty Expat actually practiced as a criminal lawyer in Canada for four years before she moved to Oz.

I hope this never comes in useful for anyone but you never know 😉

It’s also nice to have someone say something nice about you – especially when all I’m getting from my wee peeps these days is attitude.

Like last night when I kissed my son at night and told him I loved him he said I had bad breath and I had to brush my teeth, he then added that I needed to get ride of the ‘spikes’ under my arms and make sure they ‘never came back’!

So anyway the rules for the Super Sweet Blog Award are:

Thank the blogger who gave you the award and link back to her/his blog.
Nominate another blog or blogs for this award and let them know.
Post the award on your blog and answer five questions.

And the questions are:

1. Cookies or Cake?

I actually love eating cookie dough and have been known to whip up a batch of choc chip biscuits just to eat the batter – YUMMO!
Then again I can smash back cake like there’s no tomorrow, even a simple sponge with real cream and jam inside.

2. Chocolate or Vanilla?

Definitely chocolate, but I prefer it with nuts – almond, hazelnut, cashew, macadamia.

3. Favourite sweet treat?

Cheesecake mousse lattice slice choc eclairs not fussy will eat all sweet things except anything mint or coffee flavoured (I thought if I didn’t put in commas it wouldn’t look like I was cheating by picking just one favourite).

4. When do you crave sweet things the most?

All the time, in fact right now I want to dive nude in to a bowl of chocolate mousse, I live my whole life trying holding myself back from eating scrumptious food 24/7. Well except the past year when I ate whatever I wanted, hence the 10-15kg weight gain.

5. If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be?

I’m not really a sweet person so it just doesn’t seem right for me to have a sweet nickname – but I’ll play, what about Lolly Lips?

A few of my nicknames have included Em, Ems, Emmy, Em Pem Stem, Tox, Toxy, Toxic, Foxy Toxy, Poxy Toxy.

The person I want to give the Super Sweet Blog Award is Me over at My Inspirational Journey (and no I’m not being smart, that is what this blogger calls herself :).

I really love her honesty and that she is a glass half full person! She also gives me lots of nice advice from a mum that has been there and done that.

Before I go – what are three words you would use to describe yourself? Is sweet one of them??


Author: Have A Laugh On Me

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  2. Congrats! And three words to describe myself? Over this pregnancy! x

  3. Thats kids for you HONEST!!!!! I’m not sure how I would describe myself – but I did have a patient tell me that he would rather I visit him at home than the other nurses as he prefers the “gentle touch”…..
