Sunday Social :Then and now

This week I'm linking up with the Sunday Social hosts Ashley and Neely again.

1. When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up?

I remember that I wanted to be a flight attendant at one time and also a veterinarian because I loved animals and I wanted to help them. My oldest daughter is now very interested in becoming a veterinarian but I think there’s a bigger chance that she will really become one because she is much more interested in animals than I was (has loads of animal books) and loves to watch tv programs about animal hospitals ,vets etc.

2. What was your favorite way to kill time as a kid?

I loved to read books, play outside with friends, go swimming or bike riding.

3. When did you get your first cell phone?

I’m not sure but I think I bought it myself around 2000. It was a Motorola and a very big one and people were always surprised that it was so big and sometimes made jokes about it.

4. What is your favorite magazine to read?

I recently discovered an online Christian magazine called 'Set apart girl'. I really love to read these articles. They are really edifying for the Christian faith for Christian women.

You can find the latest magazine here

I also like to read Glamour sometimes, Stellar and some other mags from time to time.

5. What is the one random object people would be surprised to find in your purse?

My digital camera. I take it with me everywhere since I really love to take pictures and I never know when I will need it.

I hope that you enjoyed reading this Sunday Social post.

Here's a reminder of my current give away:

That's nice that you carry a digital camera for photos - I just use my phone and the quality isn't all that great!

Thanks for the comments ! Believe it or not. I currently don't have a mobile phone where I can take pictures with. And I must say that I prefer a camera anyway because the screen is usually bigger so the image is easier to see and it mostly has more mp. But a phone is indeed a good tool for that too. There are some that take great pics ! I guess I'm just more of a camera person.
Another reason to take my camera with me though, is to also keep the pictures on it safe for in case there is a break- in in my house. I lost a lot of baby pics from my second girl because I left my camera home a few years ago and I was heart broken over it for a long time. And I had two break- ins in the last two weeks, so I'm carrying a lot of things with me lately.:)

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Little people

It's Five minute friday. And I'm joining Lisa-Jo Baker for another session of five minute writing.

 Today we are writing about ; Imagine


 I love having kids. I love how they can surprise you by using certain words or doing certain things of which you were not aware that they could say them or do them. I love how clever they are.
I love to take care of them and to see them grow in to the people they are supposed to be one day. Now they are little people, my little people. A wish fulfilled, a blessing from God and I can’t imagine how life would be without them.
I can’t imagine a life without tiny arms that wrap themselves around you and say ‘I love you mummy’, even though they are only two. I can’t imagine a house without toys , the buggy with dollies in the corridor, the little wooden bike in the living room, the forgotten stuffed animals behind the sofa.
Though I sometimes wish that it was easier, that they made less mess, I surely can’t imagine life without them.
