Love / Hate Blogger Challenge

love hate blogger challenge

I have been nominated for the Love / Hate Blogger Challenge by the lovely Katie from Growing Up KaterTot. The idea behind the challenge is to list 10 things you hate and 10 things you love as a nice quick way to find out a bit more about bloggers you like – it’s nice to see that Katie dislikes doing the laundry as much as me! Anyway, without further ado, here is my list:

10 Things I Love

  • My Family
  • The West Wing
  • Christmas
  • Cooking
  • Hearing my children laugh with complete joy
  • Living in the countryside
  • That new born baby smell
  • Freshly baked bread
  • Wine
  • Autumn


10 Things I Hate

  • The Witching Hour – that hour (generally between 5:30pm and 6:30pm) that it is guaranteed that my children will turn into the kiddy equivalent of the Tasmanian Devil
  • The smell of bananas
  • When my children are sick or upset
  • Rudeness
  • Horror films
  • Centipedes (well, anything with more than 8 legs actually)
  • PPI sales calls
  • Putting the laundry away (I suck at this!)
  • Idiotic drivers (Especially those drivers who drink drive and think the speed limit doesn’t apply to them, and then they crash their car into your house at 2:30am and do a runner. Happened to us last year)
  • Colic


So that’s my list! Thanks for nominating me Katie!


And, if they would like to join in (there’s no pressure though) then I would now like to nominate:

Lisa from Into The Glade

Clare from Sons, Sand & Sauvignon

Lizzie from Marmalade Pie

    What wonderful lists! I must agree that Autumn is the best season. Love the changing leaves and fresh apple desserts! And centipedes creep me out, too. Ew.

    Thank you so much for accepting the challenge! I’m so glad to have met you! Xx
