Random Dozen!

I am loving playing along with this random weekly posting! So much fun!

#1 Would you rather host a party or simply attend a party?

Oh boy. I don NOT deal well with entertaining. Even having people over for a simple coffee stresses me out, so I will say attend a party, although even then I stress and agonize over every single thing I said for the next week!

#2 Tell us about the most memorable party you've been to.

It was my 30th, and from what I actually remember, I don't know if *memorable* is what I should describe it as, because I simply don't remember much at all! LOL
Suffice to say I couldn't keep anything down until 4pm the next day, and even then it was just water.
And my husband refused to let me breastfeed my child for the next two days.
It was NOT pretty.

#3 What is one thing you hope for in the afterlife?

Just these guys and I'll be a happy little camper ;)
#4 What do you enjoy most about sunshine?

Errrr, the shade?
I don't like sun. Or summer. I DO like air conditioning though;)

#5 When you attend a bridal/baby shower, do you prefer to bring your own gift or chip in with others to buy a larger gift?
I'd rather chip in.
Although this is kind of a running *joke* in my extended family. Someone suggests an expensive gift. That person buys said expensive gift, and all the poorer members (ie ME) *forget* to pay up. Although I am sure that in the past I was the purchaser...this is my poor season though;)

#6 Would you rather have a FREE week of having your house cleaned or all of your meals cooked for you and your family?
I hate cooking.
Hate it.
So I'll go the cook;)

#7 What song describes your mood today?

Its raining its pouring...

#8 What is something you received for your own bridal shower/wedding that you still own or use?
When we got married we received about 5 crystal salad bowls.
I was perplexed. What marriagey type secrets suddenly required me to have all of these salad bowls, when up until then I owned none?
I still don't know.
And I still have and use the salad bowls.

#9 You favourite flavour of ice cream?
Unless I am at Baskin Robbins (or In The Pink at Lennox Head YUM) I'll usually go vanilla.
Boring huh?

#10 When was the last time you felt 'tested'?

Oh man. The past few months have been tough. Really tough. And there isn't really an end in sight, so I am being tested now, and I am NOT liking it.
#11 _______ is a food that once I start eating I find it hard to stop.

#12 _______ is the best motivation.

Right now?
Looming deadlines are the best motivation! LOL

Your 30th sounds like my 21st (lol), I even announced infront of my mum that I was going home for a ----! OMG too much bourbon for me:0

Maltesers! Are you in the UK? I've never seen them here in the US but my English visitors know to bring them when they come. I have a tub in my pantry right now. I don't over indulge though because eating more than a handful makes me feel a little sick. Unlike m & m's which I can eat all day long.

Never mind...I see you are in Australia. I was reading in my feeder so I didn't see the link with Kirsty in AUSTRALIA mentioned : )

Oh man...I do the same thing as you (#1's answer)...I constantly critique what I've said! Takes a bit of the joy away from gathering together with friends, eh? Of course, I have a teenage daughter who constantly critiques my words for me as well, so I lose on all ends!

BTW, do you plan on celebrating your 40th birthday like your 30th? heehee Bad girl!

Thanks for visiting my blog earlier. Have a wonderful day!

Loved the pictures, especially the last one and it is so true...deadlines really get my attention. I was always a vanilla ice cream person...and got teased. I am not a chocolate ice cream fan which really got everyone going!!
