A bit more about me

Cassey tagged me on this one:

Are you named after someone?
Very traditionally after my gran on my mom's side - the same long official name - she was commonly know as Cate

When was the last time you cried? 
Last night in the shower - I am a bit tired and emotional. It was just an outlet.

Do you have kids? 
My 3 not so little any more loves that keep my feet on the ground and my heart filled with love.

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I have always seen myself as a good friend but the last few years I guess I need to up my friend game. So I think yes - if I find the time.

Do you have a guilty pleasure? 
Reading - I would read anywhere, anytime . And Sally Williams nougat.

Do you like handwriting? 
I do - I make all my notes by hand in note books and diaries. I do however if at all possible prefer to always write in colours with my favorite kokis.

What is your favorite cereal? 
I am not a great lover of cereal but eat Special K with yogurt almost every week morning at the office.

What is the first thing you notice about people? 
Their eyes and if they make proper eye contact with me. If they do not I find it difficult to connect.

What color are your eyes? 

Scary movies or happy endings? 
I do not watch scary movies. Love happy endings.

Favorite TV show?
I do not watch much TV at all! But I do watch Masterchef, Survivor and the Amazing Race.

Summer or winter? 
100% Summer - I am totally ok with 30 degrees as long as it rains. The 39 degrees and drought we had the last two weeks got to me but not as much as the winter. I hate the cold.

Hugs or kisses? 
Depends who - but mostly hugs

What’s the furthest you’ve been from home? 
Europe and Turkey. I backpacked as a student. It was a very fast growing up experience and one I will always treasure.

Do you have special talents? 
Does being a mom of twin boys count?
But I do doodle, draw and can make a very pretty party table.

And I think for an amateur photographer I take pretty ok pictures.

So whoever wants to do this or need a filler, please do this. See yourself as tagged.


  1. I am sorry that you are feeling a emotional and tired at the moment! Almost time for a well deserved rest! x

  2. I was also named after my maternal Grandmother. People shortened her name Ursula to Ursie and mine to Sula :) With you on the reading

  3. Agreeing with Cassey - love your color pens!!! Gimme gimme gimme! :)

    1. I have had the set for years- you can replace ones that are dry or old by buying them separately.

  4. Loved this post. Hugs my friend. My cry time is always in the bath.

  5. Love these questions and answers! ;-)

  6. Nice to learn more about fellow bloggies.
    Sometimes there's nothing like a cry in the shower ;-)
    Will try to complete and post my answers today.

  7. Oooh - Sally Williams! (I just don't even feel guilty about that!) 😝
    I desperately wanted to go backpacking in Europe after high school but my mom was having none of it. Not going is one of my biggest regrets.

    1. My mom also would not let me go then, but I went after my fourth year at Varsity

  8. I'm also a sucker for nougat. :)

  9. D loves nougat; I can't see what the big deal is :) but you know of my great and glorious love affair with fudge!

    Okay, I'll bite - I'll do this after my coaching appointment!

    1. I guess that is why we all differ - I can not see the big deal for fudge! Would love seeing yours.

  10. Love this. It is true...that thing about eye contact ♥

  11. What make are those pens? They look divine.


So what's on your mind?
