The Sunshine Blogger Quiz

Happy Sunday everyone,

I hope that you all are having a fantastic weekend and enjoying your adventures. I'm busy feeling sorry for myself because I have a cold. But this mama hasn't got the time to be ill and so I thought that I would bring a little sunshine into my life  (see what I did there!) and take part in the sunshine blogger quiz.  I was nominated by the lovely Alex at Better Together Home to answer ten questions that she has put together for The Sunshine Blogger Awards. There's just something about these types of posts that I love, and so I jumped at the chance to take part. It's a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers.  

1. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
My daughter's name is Amelia Rose and one day I called her Mimi and it sort of stuck. Even when I call her by Amelia she will reply 'I'm Mimi Mummy!' When it came to a blog name I knew that I wanted to use some of my daughter's name as she would be the main inspiration and so Mimi Rose and Me just had a lovely ring to it.
2. What makes you feel accomplished?
Oh, this one was tough. There are so many things that make me feel accomplished, like keeping my little person alive, haha. I would have to say that being mother is definitely accomplishment, simply because it's something that I never ever thought would happen.
3. What book would you recommend other people should read and why?
This one for me is quite difficult because there are so many I could recommend. But I think that in all honesty I would recommend Harry Potter, because you can easily find yourself getting lost in those. Most people have probably already read these but for those that haven't you so need to.
4. What is your dream holiday?
Cuba, Cuba, Cuba did I mention Cuba. We went to Cuba for our honeymoon and it was the perfect destination and I would love to be able to go back there with our daughter. It's a beautiful country, it has beautiful beaches and the people are so friendly. It's paradise. Honestly!
5. If you could eat one type of food forever what would it be?
As hard as eating one type of food forever would be I would choose fresh bread with cheese. When I was younger I would call it a cheese nubbin, don't ask me why I haven't got a clue. But I could eat fresh bread all day. Yummy!
6. What is your favourite song?
I'm going to cheat with this one. I have two favourites. My first one is our wedding dance which was 'Far Away' by Nickleback and my second favourite is 'One' by Ed Sheeran because this was the song that was playing as I went into labour with my daughter.
7. If you could live in a book, TV show or film universe, what would you pick?
Live in a book for sure.
8. You are stranded on a desert island with five things of your choosing - what are they or why?
Can I take my husband, is that fair to call him a thing? If I can't then I would choose to take music without a doubt, take a book as it would allow me to travel with my imagination to other places other than the deserted island. Sunscreen would be a must for someone who has fair skin and burns like a bugger, a hammock I hate creepy crawlies and a knife, it would be quite handy would it? Haha.
9. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
Damn Alex, this one is difficult because I am awesome. I'm kidding there's so much but one thing that I would change would be that when my ability to never being able to make decision. Say for example we are getting a take-away I will always let my husband decide first and then I would decide what I want based on his choice. I don't want to be getting myself a pizza if he decides to get a healthy jacket potato. I always, always make the bad choice.
10. Describe your dream home?
My dream home is a cottage, in the countryside. On the ground-floor there are three rooms. One is the living room with a brown sofa, coffee table and plenty of copper décor. There is a standing lamp, an entertainment unit, big windows and a view to the garden. My dream house will have a fully-equipped kitchen along with a big dining table for all the family. Finally, there is a study room complete with a desk and computer with a blush pink and copper theme throughout. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. In my bedroom there would be a super king sized bed, a white walk in wardrobe (just for me and my shoes) along with matching bedside tables. There would be a bedroom for my daughter and a play room. The bathroom would consist of large free standing bath tub, a separate shower and a toilet, sink and towel rails. So, I haven't really thought about my dream home at all.
