An A-Z of me

As seen on several many blogs lately!

A. Age: 37 (though I like to say I'm in my late 20s. Late as in passed away, sadly...)
B. Bed size: Double. I'd like a king size one day though.
C. Chore that you hate: All housework is evil. Especially ironing.
D. Dogs: The Boy is allergic, but The Tomboy would love one! I do like dogs, but I don't think we could look after one properly at the moment.
E. Essential start to your day: A mug of tea.
F. Favourite colour: Currently, I'm loving shades of blue and green - turquoise, lime green, teal, aqua, midnight blue...
G. Gold or Silver:  It always used to be gold but now if I have a preference at all it would be for silver.
H. Height: 5’7”
I. Instruments you play: I got to grade 2 violin and grade 1 viola at school, and I play a very little piano, but I love to sing so I guess my instrument is my voice!
J. Job title:  Teacher
K. Kids: Two, aged 11 and 9.
L. Live: In the UK.
M. Mother’s name: Pam.
N. Nicknames: The Awesome One ;)
O. Overnight hospital stays:  After having each child - 6 nights after The Boy, 5 after The Tomboy. Also a night in A&E with a 2-month-old The Boy, with a 2-night stay a week later for him to have an operation. And a night after having my wisdom teeth out, and a night after a minor op a few years ago.
P. Pet peeves: 'Should of', 'could of', 'different to', 'less' when it should be 'fewer'; being ignored in shops (or the shop assistant carrying on their conversation with someone else while serving me); crumbs in the butter!
Q. Quote from a movie: 'As you wish', from The Princess Bride.
R. Right or left handed: Right.
S. Siblings: 1 younger brother, 1 younger half-sister.

T. Tattoos: Not with my needle phobia! Though secretly, I do have a hankering for just a little one...
U. Underwear: Yes!
V. Vegetable you hate: Sprouts. Bleh!
W. What makes you run late:  The kids.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Only on my teeth, as far as I remember...
Y. Yummy food that you make: Malteser cake :)
Z. Zoo animal: Meerkat.
