Nida’s Questions:

Nida gave the option for her nominees to choose our own questions from the ones that she had answered in her post so here are my choices…

What do you do to unwind/de-stress/relax?

To unwind/relax I read, and to de-stress I do yoga. Although both work for all three.

Are you an early bird type of person, a night owl, or somewhere in between?

Since having my daughter a year ago my routine has altered to match her so I am definitely an early bird now. Before, due to my job I wasn’t really either, it would all depend on what shifts I was working.

Do you have a favourite movie character? Who is it and from what movie?

I love Ron Burgundy in Anchorman. He never fails to make me laugh irrelevant of how many times I watch the film!

Who is your favourite artist or what is your favourite artwork?

I love The Scream by Edvard Munch, I actually wrote about it here, and whilst that is one of my favourite pieces of art I would have to say my favourite artist is Banksy (and not just because we are both from Bristol!) I just think he is so talented and his art really resonates with me.

Which of your blog posts is your favourite?

It’s hard to choose because I have many that are particularly special to me, but if I had to pick one it would probably be: Reading with my daughter because it combines my daughter who is of course my everything, and reading which is one of my most favourite things to do.

My Nominees:

The Mindful Musings of a Gingernut

Violet @ The Violet Review

Keeley @ Keeley Rose Reads

Sherena @ pjnkskies

Rachel @ Musings of the Mind

My Questions:

As I got to select my own questions I will ask you to use the same questions that I answered. I chose them because I thought they were interesting so I’m intrigued to hear what your answers are.

There’s no obligation to take part of course but I look forward to reading your answers if you do!

Thanks for reading, I hope that you enjoyed!

Until the next time…Jess x
