Five In Five

Mystery Case

1. How long have you been blogging and why did you start?

I have been blogging for 2 years and 9 months. I started partly to do a challenge called  Simplify Your Life from Home Life Simplified.  I then discovered I really enjoyed blogging so much I forgot all about the challenge and just kept going.  Delighting people everywhere with my incredibly dodgy posts!!

In all seriousness though this has been a topic in our house for a few days.  I blog because I enjoy it.  I blog because I found a hobby.  I love to write and read blogs.  I also love that through blogging I have had some amazing opportunities come my way.

2. If your wardrobe could talk what would it say about you and tell us about your favourite or most worn item?

My wardrobe screams mum and comfort.  I have some really nice clothes that never get worn because it is easier to throw on trackies and a jumper in winter or shorts and a top in summer.  I am fine with this.  I know one day I will get to wear nice clothes, maybe even trendy and fashionable clothes but for now while I spend my days with mushed up biscuit and snot as accessories I am happy to slob it out!!

I have loads of maxi dresses which I love and wear heaps in summer.  Although my children have a knack of being able to somehow wrangle my dress and pull it up revealing my granny undies so I have to pick my times as to when to wear one!!

3. What's your idea of the perfect date night?

In 3 weeks we will have house guests who have been given babysitting duty one night and the HOTH and I are going to hit the town.  I am so stoked we will get to have an actual "date night"!!  We are going out for dinner to the local fancy restaurant that I am lucky enough to go to every few weeks with friends!!  

We got to have dinner together every night when we were in Fiji.  A whole week of having our lovely babysitter turn up about 7pm was awesome!!  I think my idea of a perfect date night would be to do this all over again!!

4. What's on your Worth Casing list?

I am so boring that at the moment I am focused on getting a new dining room table with bench seats.  I cannot find one that is the size and price I want.  I am a woman on a mission!!

As this is supposed to be fun I thought I would go through the google history and it seems lately there has been a lot of googling of hedges.

Yep the fun truly never stops here!!

5. If you had a theme song what would it be and why?

I have a theme song for everyday of the week!!  Today I have two of them.  You guys know I love my music!!

I really want to thank Ms Mystery Case for nominating me for the Five In Five,  I also want to thank Where the Wild Things Were for nominating me also!!

Now I need to nominate my Five.

Firstly I know some of the awesome bloggers I would have nominated have already been nominated!! I also know that I have a funny feeling some of the others who have been nominated will pick the same as me!!  The rules state that you can nominate yourself so feel free to pop on over and nominate your own blog!!  Not only is it a bit of fun but you could be in the running to win a seriously awesome prize!!

So in no particular order I am nominating

Rae from I Opened My Mouth and It Ran Away Without Me.

Jody from Six Little Hearts

The lovely Kaz and Ang from Melting Moments

Mums Take Five

Leanda from Write to Heal

I totally reserve the right to add more if I find they have not been nominated!!

Linkin up for #ibot with Essentially Jess


  1. I love your nominees and you've actually given me a new and rather exciting blog to 'case'. I too have daily theme songs, I sometimes think I should have someone following me around with sound effects. :)

  2. Ha ha those hedges - what a cracker! I'm not a fan of maxi dresses because they tend to maxi more than I already am - they aren't great for big boobed girls! I would love to go to Fiji and have dinner out every night with hubby! Would be divine! Em - also visiting as part of #teamIBOT

  3. Ha ha, those hedges! I hardly ever wear dresses, especially maxi ones - they make me look pregnant! Great theme songs! xo

  4. Love the hedges! I cant do maxi dresses for some reason, I love them on other people and, being tall, I always think they should suit me but I just end up looking like a pair of walking curtains.

    I think I may just nominate myself as I'm struggling to put together a post at the moment so having questions (and I love the questions) as a guide will give me something to work on!

  5. I am too short for most maxi dresses! I trip over them haha. Enjoy your 'date night' :)

    1. I'm the same Alicia! Too short for maxi dresses :)

  6. You Google hedges too? Snap!

    Just joking - I don't Google hedges. I have too many imaginary illnesses to Google.

  7. Isn't it amazing how far we have come since Deb's challenge over at Home Life Simplified. Just amazing

  8. Woo hoo! Thanks for the nom! Love the hedges! lol

  9. Ha! Ann, when I first began reading I thought, hang on... these are not my questions! Then it occurred to me what was going on. Lol. Sounds like you deserve a romantic 'date night' - enjoy!

    1. And thanks for nominating me... I'll attempt to fit it in before I leave on my journey overseas :-) xx

  10. Hilarious about the hedges! Thank you for the nomination!
    Nothing worse than having your skirt raised by an inquisitive kiddo - been there many times over! Xx

  11. Trackies and granny undies. We must shop at the same mummy-coture store.

  12. Thanks so much for the nomination, I'm honoured. I also can't do maxi dresses, I get tangled and it's not a pretty site when a middle aged woman falls over, I wear heels for that particular event. I'll get cracking on the post now xxxxx

  13. Love your responses Ann...I found it so hard to pick 5 and am so glad Tegan nominated you! Love checking out your blog, always get a laugh....."mushed up biscuits and snot as accessories"...LOL

  14. Love the idea of five in five.....so great and you answers are so cool too.
