1. If you could be a cartoon character – who would you be and why?

I would be Tinkerbell! I absolutely love anything Disney and when I was a kid we used to watch The Wonderful World of Disney at Easter and Tinkerbell flys around the castle and waves her wand and I love that. Plus she can fly, she is cheeky & funny and so cute. Whats not to love. Only downside is that she doesn't get her man but I'm sure I could change that.
And when its my TOM I would be Cruella Deville ha!

2. Who was your teenage heart throb? (Thanks Fiona for this one)

Thanks Draz for asking this one for me x

My teenage heart throb was Donny Osmond (well I was a bit younger than a teenager maybe 10 or 11) and I used to dream that I was in a car crash and ended up in a coma so they played his music to try to wake me up. Then he came to visit me and instantly fell in love with me. I woke up and we went to live in Utah. ha ha ha makes me laugh so much now.

3. Do you believe being overweight is about a mental obstacle or do you believe it’s simply about overeating/food?

Its both and much more. If it was just food then diets would work. For me the mental obstacle is harder to overcome than the taste. I also think our way of life has a lot to play in being overweight. Take a typical McDonalds "meal". It is a days healthy calorie intake in one meal. If you include a milkshake or dessert you would be well over. What does that teach us about portion because lets face it its not a massive amount of food just very high in calories.
You have to take all this in to account to successfully manage your weight. I will let you know when I get it right.

4. What’s your all-time favorite song?

Mine changes all the time because lots of songs have different memories. I love "the time of my life" from Dirty Dancing because I heard it a lot the first time I went to Florida and I did have the time of my life. I also love "time to say goodbye" by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman and "fix you" by Cold Play always makes me cry.

5. Whose blog or comment spoke to you/stuck with you this week and why? This is our “you get to be famous for a moment” without having to follow all the rules of an official blog award question.

Jacquie’s blog was such a shock and so so sad. My heart goes out to her and her family. It made me hug my family just that bit tighter. And the comments I received about job hunting this week were so helpful and useful that I have to give them a mention. Special thanks to Genie x
