Tigerlilly Quinn: Ten things about me

Ten things about me


I thought as it's been a while I would share a few fun things about me you may or may not know. This little blog of mine has been going for four years now. Sometimes that amount of time seems like ages and sometimes I feel like 'what was I doing before this?' I love blogging and I'm so glad to have stumbled into this world of, well, over sharing! Over the years my readership of maybe two or three people (Tom and my parents!) has grown a little, I have such supportive readers and I love to read each and every comment that is posted here. 

So here are ten things about me:

1, I am appalling shy and terrible at meeting new people 
2, When i was 8 i contracted an often deadly form of meningitis / septicaemia and was told a was half an hour away from death. I hallucinated pretty badly and my parents became a giant spider and a ladybird, it was terrifying and an image I can still remember to this day.
3, despite the best intentions I do have several regrets in life
4, That being said I have never been more happy than I am now
5, I am ambitious and competitive, I am also a people pleaser and a worrier. It's a funny kind of mix
6, I think the most important thing you be is to be a kind person, it's the quality I hold in highest regard with people I meet. 
7, I find unkindness confusing and it worries me more than it should
8, Being a mother has taught me more about life, people, the world then my previous 26 years put together
9, I respect my parents immensely but sometimes I cannot work them out
10, I'm not sure if I want to get married but if I do I would rather elope

p.s this dress, bag and necklace are from my shop (and two out of three are on sale)

Hi Fritha. I always reads your blog having only got into blogging this year. I really do love it, thank you. You have a lovely honesty and charm that can only come from real authenticity. I really value that in people and blogs. I'm all about being kind too, in fact it's more or less the mantra of Blue Eggs and Tea (Be Nice, Be Kind). Anyway, just thought I would say hi and have a lovely christmas and new year with the boys :)

Awww, you sound quite similar to me, certainly with number 5. xx

Globalmouse said...

Such a great list!! And number 1....really???! I am really shy at meeting new people too but I would never have thought you were! I would also agree with number 5! :) xx

Jennifer said...

Great list! I agree that kindness is so important

Polly Davies said...

with you on 1!! And several others.... I never thought I'd get married, but we did and we eloped to Gretna Green - was the best thing we ever did!

Anna said...

Always interesting to find out more about bloggers behind the blogs that I read, as often we end up knowing more about the kids than the blogger themself! #2 on your list must have been so scary!!! #5 also sounds like me!

Louisa said...

I am with you on number 1. Number 2 must've been terrifying for you and your whole family, thankfully you proved the doctors wrong x

Julia Bradbury said...

Well done Fritha, you overcame the traumas in your early life and have become very much a 21st Century Woman and I admire you immensely.

Isn't #4 a good feeling? :) I was pretty unsure about myself and unhappy as a teenager. Thank goodness that is a phase that you can grow out of! Right now, as a stay-at-home mom, trying to live a simple and less materialistic life, with an emphasis on making (food, baby clothes, crafts) I am pretty darn happy. Holding a give-a-way today on my blog if anyone wants to stop by - spreading some holiday cheer!

Number 2 must have been so scary - it's my worst fear with the kids!

pinkoddy said...

That must have been scary to have developed septicaemia and am so glad you fought through it. 4 years that is quite an achievement to have been blogging - nice to get to know you more,

Cathy said...

Don't elope! You would have the most gorgeous wedding and we could all read all about it and admire your pix!


I'm with you on numbers 8 and 9… xx

Ditto to 6/7/8 - my favourite saying is "It's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice" and I hope that's something that will stick with my son as he grows older too :) X

fritha strickland said...

aww this is such a lovely this to say! thank you so much for taking the time to drop me this note I really appreciate it. Now I have discovered your blog which is beautiful! have a lovely Christmas too! xx

fritha strickland said...

I guess it's good that being competitive and ambitious doesn't mean you have to be super confident or mean but then again I'm not sure being a people pleaser is good either so I'm trying to balance it! xx

fritha strickland said...

I wouldn't have said you were shy either! when we first met I felt really shaky! xx
